Rocking, Jumping, and Jumping Some More
Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . a big dog barking at me from the car I parked next to at the store. The car's windows were only rolled down a few inches so the dog couldn't actually do me any harm, but of course I didn't realize that until the neurons in charge of jumping and screaming had already fired.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . making caramel corn with my family.
. . . meeting two of Joy's schoolmates at Trader Joe's after school. We always seem to see someone from school when we stop there on the way home. It's like an after-school playdate.
. . . watching my kids play happily with the neighbors in the courtyard.
. . . rocking in our rocking chair.
. . . seeing Phillip smile as Anna crawled laps around him on the bed.
. . . learning that 10 minutes of jumproping burns as many calories as 20 minutes of jogging. I'm glad, because I like jumproping a lot better than jogging, and I can get a great workout without leaving my house.
