The afternoon and evening after…

Darling Rina,

This is my second post today, but I feel the need to write. You have been a challenge today as you were completely exhausted, but refused to sleep. Actually, you wanted to sleep… only in my arms and it’s not something I normally do except in the afternoon, when you get to your witching hour before bath time. I tried lying next to you on the futon to put you to sleep which worked for about 5 mins. Then, I tried putting you to sleep in my arms and putting you down after, only to have you waking up as soon as you touched your mattress and start crying. We pretty much spent the entire day playing that game, with me trying to put you down and you being overtired all day.

Needless to say I haven’t had time to do any workout today. Add to it that my cold is worst today (I’m praying for a good night of rest so I can do my 2nd run/walk tomorrow). I barely had time to do laundry and still have to fold 2 baskets worth of clothes. As I was eating dinner, I took the opportunity to watch some TV and fell on The Biggest Loser and as sappy as it sounds, I was bawling my tired/sick eyes out when Arthur got on the scale. It inspired me to at least attempt some yoga targeted at runners and repeat the stretches for my shins. Depending on how things go, I may do the Challenges too.

Trying to tire you out so you'll sleep

Doing some crunches in the meantime!

So I’ll get to it now and the baskets of laundry folding will just have to wait a bit longer. I’m taking some well-deserved time for me right now!

Hopefully, you’ll get a restful night and will be better tomorrow!

Love,

Mom & Dad Xxo
