Sure enough, a little conversation and one glass of wine later, I was feeling a little more calm. Things started to look up when amongst all the garage sale items my in-laws were donating to my fund raiser garage sale, I noticed these little gems...
MIL refused to tell me why she had them in her possession, which only made me giddier.
On the way home, against my better judgment, I bought a bottle of wine. When I returned home, I drank the wine. When I awoke yesterday, I remembered that I had been contacted last week by my very first company for a product review on my blog. I'm sure you'll be as tickled as me to know it was for Zaca. Their tag line is "Feel better long after you're done with the party". I wondered where the hell my samples were as this would have been a great time to try them out. Then I wondered what exactly about my blog made them contact me? Posts about drinking entire bottles of wine on a weeknight? Maybe.
So yesterday, I felt A.W.F.U.L. but I made myself go to the gym and kill my upper body with a good weight workout. Then the kids got home and we headed to our neighborhood common area to play ball.

|Jack is in Jammies because it was PJ day at school.|
|We went up to spooky forest and found a cool hiding spot.|
|4, 5, 6 and 7 leaf clovers?|
and Mai started a club called the Coyote Cove Survivor Club. Our cat was killed up there by coyotes two years ago and she figures this little den is where the coyotes sleep at night.
Then I fell asleep for 2 minutes before it was time to head to the track. I was SO tired and bed was calling. I roused myself up and out the door and in 2 minutes time, it had gone from tank top weather to a downpour. Despite being hungover, late and having continuing left leg issues from Monday's run, I had a refreshingly hard and rainy hill repeat workout on Terwilliger with the team. A FANTASTIC 6+ miles later, I was heading on home! One more day in the books.
