HUGE sigh of relief!!!

After days of searching, I have finally found someone to watch Matty temporarily!

One of Tim's cousins will watch him on Mondays and Wednesdays while I'm in school. I already watch her boy on Tuesdays, so it should work out well. She lives in our town, so I don't have to shuttle him to Eureka (thank goodness) and she's on the way to Kara's preschool. I am quite happy about this arrangement and I think Matty will like it, too.

I plan on running later tonight. Kara has a bit of a cough, so I don't want to take her out in the cold. So I will wait for Tim to get home and go running then. Maybe I'll leave the iPod home again......

Be back later to update!


So I didn't run after all. I got all dressed, stepped out the door into darkness and had the creepiest feeling wash over me. I know it is dark at 6 p.m. and I have run in the dark before, but for some reason tonight my "Spidey senses" told me to stay home. I just didn't feel comfortable for some reason, and if my gut tells me something feels off, I am certainly going to listen. So I did an about-face and headed back in. I think I will just take the night off (again) because I have a run planned out for tomorrow morning and it will be a hard one because I'll have Matty in the stroller.

In the end, it looks like you will be just fine with the outcome. Good luck on your run tonight.

Wow, I'll bet you're glad to not have that cloud hanging over you. Sounds like a good arrangement for you both.

And you totally messed up the boogie man's plans by not running.

I am so glad you honored that feeling.

That's great! Good to hear you have a sitter for Matty. I bet that's a huge relief.
