If you hear snoring, let us be!

Yesterday was supposed to be a day of R&R for LL after not sleeping on Saturday night due to indigestion from eating (too much!) Mexican food. Poor thing had heart burn and really didn't sleep much at all. We had tickets to the Hawks game Sunday evening, but she decided to bow out and recuperate. She's a big fan and really likes our seats, so she was sad about missing. The Oscars being on was a nice alternative for her though while she flipped back and forth between the game.

Just when LL was getting ready to take a nap, about 2:30 or so, I went up to the kitchen and noticed the sink had backed up. Ugh!! We have two sinks up there so I needed LL to secure the stopper on one side while I plunged the other. Unfortunately it didn't work. Then my neighbor came over and said there's was backed up as well which meant the main stack going to the main line was backed up. Double ugh! So I called the plumber who asked if I REALLY needed him out today (their way of saying it was going to be expensive) and I said I did. Unfortunately I left for the game before the plumber got there and had to have a few conversations and short texts with LL while the plumber was here. When I came back though, it was all cleaned up and things were sterilized that needed it. Fortunately the condo building foots the bill since it wasn't in our unit per se.

Since LL didn't get the sleep she needed, I thought I'd hit the store while running errands and make dinner for when she got home. Porterhouse steaks were on sale and I bought some sugar snap peas to cook. Combine that with some pita triangles heated up in the oven and dipped in one of two kinds of hummus and it was quite the meal! Delicious! LL was very happy. I don't think she's going to have any trouble sleeping tonight.

I also hit the gym today and did some light weights and then ran for the first time in a LONG time. I only put in 20 minutes, but went about 2 miles before walking briskly for another 10 minutes or so. Just easing back into it. It was a pretty good workout, which leads me to believe I too will have no trouble sleeping.

oh wow, you must have been very busy if you'd not made it to the gym in a while! I also went back to the gym but I bet my period off was a bit longer than yours :)

Pregnancy really messes with your ability to eat whatever you like. Sorry to hear that LL suffered Mexican food side affects.

I've been slacking off on my gym visits. I think I'm in a winter funk.

Right you are Terri. Not much room for handling that spicy stuff with the little one inside.
