4:55 AM--woke up, drank half a cup of coffee, got dressed
5:15--began running on the treadmill
5:55, at mile 4--Sam comes down....He is hungry! Jimmy has gone for an outdoor run, and all of the other children are still asleep. I stop running, fix him a waffle and chocolate milk, and tuck him in my bed watching Blue's Clues.
at mile 6--Blue's Clues is over. Sam is back, wanting to watch Curious George. I stop running, and go turn the TV on a recorded episode of Curious George.
at mile 8.4--Sam is back. George is over. He would like to watch something else. I stop running, and go turn on Sesame Street.
at mile 10.1--Sam is back. He doesn't like Sesame Street. I stop running, and go turn on Max and Ruby. I ask Sam to please wake up Julie or Clay if he needs anything else!
at mile 11.3--Sam is back! And now Julie is awake, so I do not stop running. Sam lays on the floor beside the treadmill and cries.
at mile 12.2--Sam finally leaves and goes upstairs.
Mile 13.2--Finally done!!
