And a few other random things ...
*Jayla and Jordyn are starting swimming lessons. Jayla had her first lesson last night (pictures later) and Jordyn goes on Wednesday night. We will be busy for the next month with lessons two times a week, but we are excited about it! Jayla did okay with her first lesson. She wasn't too sure about it at first and cried, but she still did well. The nice part is that the lessons are in the therapy pool so it's nice and warm. :)
*I had a scary thing happen to me on Saturday when I decided to go tan. I hadn't been there for a while (and I don't tan often), but I thought I should use up my minutes. I went for 7 minutes, which is what I always go for in this certain bed, and the minute I got out, my whole back side was on fire and bright red. I had never seen anything like it, and I was sure it wasn't a tanning burn - if I burn (which very rarely happens) it doesn't turn red right away like this. I immediately called Justin (crying of course - it was painful). I quickly drove home, and he couldn't believe how bad it was either. We were sure that I was having a reaction to the cleaning product they used. He called the tanning place for information, and then we headed to the doctor. The doctor put me on a steroid. Within a few hours, it was mostly gone, thank goodness. Every part of me that touched the bed was burned from my shoulders to my legs. I am so very thankful that it went away.
*Jordyn was so sweet when all of this was going on. I was crying because it was so painful and I was scared, and she kept saying "Mommy, what's wrong? Mommy, why are you so sad?" She has a sweet heart.
*I am getting incredibly frustrated with not being able to lose the rest of my baby weight. I have been at a standstill for the longest time. I run, ride the bike, lift weights, and while I know I am a lot stronger and can run/ride bike longer than I have ever been able to, it's not working. (I do have to share that from the middle of August to December I ran 70 miles. For you marathon runners - Angie :) - I know this doesn't seem like a lot, but it is for me.) Any tips on what to try would be greatly appreciated. :)
I think for now I've typed enough ... time to get moving here! :)
