52 New Things – Week 5

Trish –

My new thing this week was participating in an organized run.  I “ran” in the fun run part of Gabe’s Hope Heart to Sole.  I just started the whole running thing, so I took a baby step and stuck to the 1 mile fun run.  It was really cold and I’m really whiny, so it’s probably best that I went small.  It did make me feel good and I am planning to do a 5K very soon.

This week, I took all 3 of the girls to the park by myself. I’m really not a bad Mommy, I’ve taken them to the park before, but this time we went with no strollers, no wagons, no friends. It was just me, the girls and this very large play area. Luckily it wasn’t packed and I was able to manage a good 45 minutes before I thought I was going to have a panic attack. It was nice to prove to myself that I can do this whole parenting of multiples thing.

I tried a new blow dryer this week and it sucked.  I want my old turbo-powered, dry your hair in a second, blow dryer back.  The husband destroyed it and I replaced it with a pale imitation.  This week’s new thing was a fail.
