While we're here in Florida, I'm trying to optimize not only my training time, but also fitting in work and of course entertaining Julia! Not an easy task but so far the first 24 hours have gone well! Other than Julia waking up just after 7am - seriously?!
I spent the morning paying bills, ordering a new queen size bed for the house here (we only have twin beds now!), getting Julia's birthday party invites addressed (can she REALLY be 2 in a month?! Wow), working, etc..So I needed a break!
We went with our neighbor Paula ("Auntie Pawda" to Julia) to her gym today and they hooked me up with a temporary membership there which is perfect for me. It's less than $3 a day and includes all the classes, equipment, day care and a lap pool. So thankful to have this so I don't fall behind on my training while I'm here! Today I was on the spin bike for an hour and 20 minutes and did about 24 miles (approx). I was a disgusting, sweaty mess, which Julia reminded me of when I picked her up ("Mommy sweaty!" she says).
It was still iffy weather here today so we stayed around home and played with Julia outside. Here she is with her water table (she is soaked):
Paula and I enjoyed an adult beverage while Julia played before the rain hit. It rained for about 10 minutes and now it's done- typical summer weather in Florida!
But the most exciting news of the day is that we're (Paula and Glenn) taking Julia to the Tampa Bay Rays baseball game on Sunday and they have a free concert after the game - with The WIGGLES! I know, you can hardly contain your excitement and jealousy, right!? I asked Julia if she wanted to go and she jumped up and down with a resounding "YEEEAAAAA!!!!" So cute. It is amazing that these gooney guys are now probably billionares because of kids like Julia:
Rob always questions why he didn't come up with a simple concept like this himself!
We're going to have a spaghetti feast for dinner here tonight with Paula and Glenn so a low key evening with good friends, food and wine! Can't beat it!
Until next time - here is a quote from one of The Wiggles songs...
Fruit salad...yummy, yummy!
Haha!! Have a great day!
