Long weekend. Was going to do a 5k last night but my MIL invited herself over. Which she never does. She has macular degeneration and therefore cannot drive so after church, daughter and i went to birthday party, came home, downed a glass of wine in preparation for MIL and went to get her and go to dinner at Applebees. I haven’t mentioned this but I try to eat mostly if not entirely vegetarian. Applebees has NOTHING vegetarian on the menu. How is that even possible in 2012 that a resturarant doesn’t have vegetarian options? Anyway, it didn’t matter as daughter was pretty tired and has developed a fear of body functions after a week with the flu – she had a FLIPPING MELTDOWN in the bathroom — people probably thought I was abusing her. She did not calm down after that so I basically didn’t get to eat. Was embarrassing and I found myself saying to her that she was ruining dinner — and that’s when I heard my father’s voice telling me I ruin everything (yes, he used to tell me that as a child) and I am still pretty upset I thought that let alone said it to her. She’s 3 and doesn’t understand shit. So I feel like a terrible mother. And no 5k.

There is a 5k this weekend — I think I’m going to do it. Also — there is a 1/2 marathon Dec 1. It’s a semi-trail 1/2 and if childcare works out, I’m also doing that one — not for time, just for fun and to run the whole time. Then Dec 8 there’s a 10k. Again will be for fun — and hopefully COLD!!!!! Love love love running in the cold! Oh, and the South Park (Charlotte, NC) 8k on Thanksgiving Day! With my mom & dad!
