DAY OFF! SLEPT IN!
Kristen kept trying to wake me up, but I wasn’t having it. Eventually woke up, laid in bed for a bit while Finley played on the laptop. We’re lazy, baby!
Kristen watched back through yesterday’s vlog, then Jonah finally woke up. Told him to get some exercise clothes on so we could go run. I’ve got to help him put in some conditioning work before his next cross-country practice, which he is not into.
We opted to just do a mile, since running is so new to him. He quite half-a-mile in, which was frustrating. We’re really trying to work on the whole “finish what you start” thing with him, so I was disappointed he left me out there running by myself. In such great weather, too! The rain made it a beautiful morning.
I finished up, grabbed a shower and then sat down to have a heart-to-heart with him. He doesn’t want to do the running thing, but I’m making him give it a try – at least more than one day’s try. Ate some lunch and then we jumped into house cleaning. (House showing tonight at 6:45pm. We’ll see.)
Since we had plenty of time, we didn’t rush the cleaning too much. We cleaned a little, too breaks, goofed off and such. (I’m super good at this day-off thing.) Surprisingly, Jonah went back outside to try the run again. He did it without me, and took some walk breaks, but he put in his 1.2 miles and I was very proud of him for doing it.
We left the house around 6pm and drove over to Andy’s for frozen custard. Since we were killing time, the kids wanted to go play on the computers in Best Buy. Finley just wanted to goof off, but Jonah would really like to buy his own computer. Need to find a way to encourage him to start saving. We came home, made up some quesadillas and chilled the rest of the night.
