For the past six months to a year, I've been slowly entering the next phase of my life:
Taxi cab driver.
This is my number one non-paying client on my right.
I ferry my three children to and fro. It's my second job. Now some people wish they were rich for various reasons but I know as soon as I hit the jackpot I will never hit, I'm hiring myself a secretary. Why? because I haven't figured out how to plug their schedules into my I Phone calendar just yet. Ok, I take that back, I do but I just don't like how it works. All three have something going on every day of the week. Currently I'm operating on the sticky-note-in-my-jacket-pocket method.
"MOM! MOM! We need a catcher, come over here!"
(They have a very valid point)
Only I end up in the yard playing baseball with these clowns and then I drive to Subway for dinner because that's what happens when you try to right a wrong at dinner time.
He "loves them all equally".I can't wait to bring them out when he brings his first girlfriend to the house one day.
Currently I'm getting in some decent swimming and biking and running. Technically more than I thought I would get in, all things considered, but whatever happens next month at Ironman Chattanooga 70.3 will be what happens. I do see the 5 am a few mornings a week but I seem to have misplaced my cape of mom and training goddess wonder and therefore am on skid row of training.
I've concluded that there should be a wave for exhausted moms. I also wouldn't say no to handfuls of coupons to the grocery store at the expo. I don't want free Chapstick, endurance gummies, powder and leg tape. I want some dish washing pods and free Lysol samples in my bag of shwag. Couple free toothbrushes, shampoo samples, etc. Tampons, deodorant. You know, stuff.
I use to not stop for sightseeing on my rides but this pony would probably fit in the backseat of my car. I'm not saying I'm gonna take the pony......yet. But if I WERE to take the pony I would bring it back.
