Let’s Get Retarded – Black Eyed Peas
When we went to see No Doubt three years ago, Black Eyed Peas was one of their opening acts. Now, three years later, I’m listening to their latest.
Workout: Upper body (Shoulders, back, biceps), Abs&Obliques, Cardio (10 minutes, stairclimber)
Water intake: 2 Ltrs
I almost didn’t make it to the gym this morning – I reset my alarm and then crawled back into bed – then I laid there and guilt tripped myself – and convinced myself to go. Assured myself that if I went today, I would feel less guilty if I chose not to go tomorrow, or Friday :). Those 10 minutes on the stepper nearly killed me tho – I need to work on my endurance I think :).
I picked Jagrit up at his sitter’s today – and I found myself looking forward to it all day. I envy people who have that at the end of their day – the way his face lit up when he saw me and they way he clung to me when I picked him up made my world shine. As I was putting him in the car, I realized that if people didn’t know better, that they would think that he was mine – that he could be adopted. And I think, if it ever came to that, adoption IS something I could live with because I don’t think that I could love my own kids anymore than I love Renu’s.
After I got to Renu’s, I hung out with Jayant – we discussed Santa-strategy, I informed him of the BAD list and the GOOD list, and what he needed to do in the next 7 weeks if he expected anything. He is taking me very seriously, as he should – Santa is a very serious subject. I can even see Renu getting some of the Xmas-bug in her – she is talking about gifts this year, and what their plans are- it is wonderful to see our celebrations and traditions become a part of her life.
Jayant then read to me from his book, then sat on my lap so that we could play the ‘staring game’. He kept cheating by blowing in my face so that I would lose. I quickly told him Santa doesn’t like cheaters. I can see why parents like Christmas:) :). At one point Renu observed Jayant on my lap and Jagrit hitting me with his shoe so I’d pay attention to him and she commented that her kids sure were attached with me. You think? ;).
And the Day Gets Better
I arrived home from work today to discover that not only had Tay ran the dishwasher, but he had also washed the dishes. He asked me the other day if I was serious about conversations we’d had about getting married in Vegas. I told him to just tell me when to start making plans. Today, he ran the idea by Myron&Christoff to see if they would go. Ummm. 🙂
By the way, Tay invited Myron&Christoff to spend Christmas with us. They are considering it. YaY!!! 🙂
1. If you were given a chance to drink a potion that will make you live forever. Would you drink it? Why or why not? As tempting as it would be, I don’t think so – I think it would be painful to outlive everybody and very lonely after a while.
2. If you have a chance to change your gender before you were born, would you do it? Why or why not? No because girls kickass :). But when I am reincarnated, I’d like to be a boy this time around :).
