Wednesday, Jimmy had a nice surprise for me.....he took the children 120 miles north (picked up Pop, his dad, on the way) for a field trip. They visited a creek that is full of blue rocks! They really are beautiful! Some of them are even green and purple. I have never seen rocks like this before.
On this morning, I left the house before anyone else was up.....at 5:20 AM. For the first time ever, I met my dear friends Lynn, Emily, and Kim for an early morning run. These girls meet regularly to run in the early morning, but since I live across town from them, and also since Jimmy has to be at work so early, I have never been able to join them. I was delighted to run with them! We had the best time! 6+ miles passed in no time at all with us chatting away! We were through running by 7:00, and I stopped by the gas station for chocolate milk and coffee (to refuel), and then I did my monthly Walmart shopping--no children in tow. Next, I stopped by my new eye doctor's office (she is wonderful, by the way) to try a new contact. Dr. Julie Brock is taking very good care of me. I am having some vision issues---I just can't see! Dr. Brock has been working with me, trying different prescriptions and brands of contacts, plus she renewed my glasses and reading glasses prescriptions. I plan to visit her office again next week to order new glasses!
