It was bound to happen eventually...

I'm getting back into a groove, I think.

Woke up at 4:45 am to run for the 3rd time this week.

It sucks less the more you do it.
So, after a few more weeks maybe it will start to feel good ;).
Kidding, kidding.
It will NEVER feel good at 4:45 am.
But it feels good once I get going and have my run done before 7am!

 Today's workout:

5 miles
1 hour BodyPump

Plus, I have super great plans to clean out my car today. 
Then there is some fun volleyball tonight.
Lots of good calorie burning going on today.   

In "My Life as a Mom" stories...
Today my 3 year old did something that we had managed to
 avoid happening with any of the previous 4 children.

He stuck this bead up his nose:

Oh yes, he did.
Right up there...
We both panicked for a minute because, as I said,
we have never had any object in the nose incidents up until today.
I called the husband all freaked out...
and of course he doesn't answer.

I tried to get him to blow it out, where I quickly learned that he doesn't
know how to blow air out of his nose- he just SNIFFS.
That's not helpful when trying to get something OUT of the nostril.

Finally I chilled out.
Then I got one of those plastic covered paper clips (in above picture),
straightened it and pulled that little sucker out of there.

Good times.

Gotta love kids! My son stuck a rock up his nose when he was younger. We had nose blowing contests and he eventually blew it out!

I positively despise 4:45am.

And...ouch. Just ouch.

Good move on the paperclip, a nose bead would freak me out for sure! At least now I know what to do if that happens:)
I'm still so impressed by your early running, sleeping problems I've had lately have led to waking up problems, so I haven't done that in a WHILE.

Again, laughing out loud. Way to go Brandon. I pray that never happens to me with my kids.
