Don't worry though, it feels a lot better today and it only blistered in 2 spots so I probably don't have to go for the elective amputation after all. When it happened last night I realized I'm woefully short on first aid supplies, so Faith and I had a Target trip this morning to stock up.

No pictures of the burned hand because it would gross me out to see that on someone else's blog so I don't want to subject readers to that (yes, I know I have posted dog vomit pictures, but that's just funny).
My joints have been feeling sore this week, so I took today as a semi-rest day and just walked 4.25 miles instead of running. I did most of it on the treadmill with an incline, so it was still a decent workout. I'm finding that rest days are making a big difference in how my joints feel, which is pretty much a no brainer, but I still have to remind myself to take them more often than otherwise. I realized I haven't posted a picture of myself in a few weeks, so in case you're dying to see my growing girth, here you are:
|Yep, still pregnant.|
This week is the last week of the summer reading program at our library so they had a pajama and stuffed animal story time tonight at 6pm. I was surprised that Faith was one of the only toddlers in attendance, but I guess a 6pm event attracts the older kids. It was a little bit embarrassing to have the only kid who want to "help" the librarian read the story by loudly repeating the last word of every page and making helpful sound effects like "ROAR!!!" and instructing all the kids to "CLAP! CLAP!" at the end of each book.
|Well, SOMEONE has to tell those kids what to do|
Faith's latest obsession is with trying to jump, but for some reason she just can't get the hang of it. Considering how hard she tries, I know she figure it out soon, but until then...it cracks me up. For your viewing pleasure:
I decided that getting through the week deserved a special dinner, so we picked up dinner on the way home and then had a "pajama picnic" while watching the Olympics. Here's something you don't see on many blogs:
|Well, McDonald's is an Olympic sponsor|
|OMG Mommy, people are going to talk about your toddler feeding habits now|
Peanut wasn't a fan of our picnic idea, mostly because I didn't get her a happy meal too.
|This diet SUCKS|
|I hate you all|
Faith is a huge Olympics fan. Her favorite events are the swimming ("POOL! SWIMMING!" as she calls it) and the equestrian events. My brainwashing of her has been so effective.
|Daddy loves how Mommy is training me to love the most expensive hobby ever!|
What's your favorite fast food? I like the burgers from Wendy's, but the fries from McDonald's. Faith just likes any meal that comes in a colorful box.
