From our house, it's about a mile to our neighborhood grocery store, so the other day, JM and I ran there and picked up a few things and ran back home. It was nice being so efficient, avoiding driving and also getting a run in. I also think this is good symbolism for the fact that I am quite blissfully enjoying motherhood these days. Running with my jog stroller, having the iPod on in the store and tossing items into the carriage made me feel strangely happy (and a little kooky). And to boot I made a few impulse purchases and wound up running home with a 1/2 gallon of apple cider and 12 cumbersome rolls of TP in the stroller. It was quite a workout. The cider in particular. Next time I'll skip the heavy liquids, methinks.
For the record, JM has been better the last two nights with the waking. He's only getting up 3 times a night, just like before. No idea what was up.
