Girls' Day Out

Anna's school was closed today, a kind of combined Veteran's Day/Teacher In-service thing. Colin's school was open, so we sent him off and spent the day together.

We went on a bike ride for exercise. Anna did really well. She still has a little bike with training wheels - a quadricycle - but has only recently gotten the knack of it. Today she gained confidence and longevity. We went about 1.5 miles! Afterwards she was tired, and happy to get into the bike trailer behind me, so that I could get a little more exercise than I did just coasting behind her.

Then we went to an early bird showing of Flicka, a pre-teen chick flick about horses. We snuck in our own popcorn. She sat in my lap most of the movie. It was cheesy and cliche, but we both enjoyed it, since we're both girls who love horses.

I really jinxed myself with yesterday's post... I was awake, staring at the ceiling, 3-5 am. Grrr...

Flicka was cheesy but I loved it too. I just had to keep Susan from cursing through it. HA HA
It must have been the weather because I tossed and turned all night as well. I hope tonight is better.

Hey, thanks for filling me in on the liver protectant. I don't drink much anymore, but it's nice to know I can self-medicate with milk thistle if I decide to attend a frat party or something.

I never realized that dogs and humans could take so much of the same drugs. One of your commenters (I think, or was it you?) said something about giving a coughing dog Benadryl, and I was all "Whaaa?"

Not only is it nice to be blogging again, it's so cool to be reading my favorite blogs again. I kind of quit both, like a jerk. Heh.
