~Now my whole eye area and forehead itches like mad. Kind of a funny reaction to a bee sting, no? Maybe I need some Benadryl.
~I get such a kick out of watching Moana socialize with other little kids. Kirsten (our day care lady) has done such a nice job in teaching these kids how to interact with each other and it transfers over to other kids outside daycare. This afternoon I took Moana to the playground. There was another little girl there (almost 3yo) and Moana walked right up to her and said "Hi Friend!" She's such a cute little social butterfly. The two then climbed and played together and had a blast. At one point the other girl offered Moana some of the chips she was eating. Moana reached right into her bag and grabbed a few and then said, "Thank you for sharing!" She's so polite. :)
~I don't get a kick out of grown ups smoking near the playground. Really? Is that necessary? I actually asked a woman that today. I can keep my mouth shut in some situations but when someone is smoking at the playground around
~Yesterday I found out what the effect of too much caffeine actually is on HR. Usually I get up and run first thing in the morning and just have a shot of espresso first, but yesterday I waited and ran Moana to daycare in the jogger. This gave me a more leisurely morning around the house which included time for actual coffee. A whole french press of it in fact. In my defense, it was like the best coffee ever on the planet and I drank it black. SO, turns out that 2 big cups of coffee increases my HR by ~5 beats. Maybe not a big deal to some people, but that made my run awfully slow yesterday because when you're working within a low and narrow HR range, well, 5 beats is huge. Lesson learned, save the real coffee for post run. Except for Nalani. I found out that when she has a bike workout where the HR ranges look like they might be hard to hit, she drinks more coffee first. Um, I think that's called cheating.
Ok. I think that's enough random nothingness for tonight. :)
