|One teen recently visited the Space Center|
I'd tell you how my teens will be back in school in less than two weeks. Yes, mid August -- that just doesn't seem right. In fact, they begin on a Thursday. Who does that? Most Moms probably like it when school starts each year. Not me. I lose my
I always dread the first night of school too. All that paperwork you have to fill out...again. It's the same info year after year. Why isn't this information stored in the school's computer?
You'd hear how my iPod Shuffle has become unreliable. I think it's the 3rd one I've worn out. I'm not complaining. With the wear, tear and sweat I put those things through it's hard to believe they last as long as they do. But it forces me to run with my phone for music. This week, I experimented with a running belt to hold my phone. Also, I need extra space for carrying items on long training runs or in races and had wanted to try a belt.
I wore the Go Belt made by Hippie Runner. It is adjustable and buckles like a SpiBelt. The belt is lightweight and comes in fun colors and prints. It has two expandable zipper pockets and outside loops for gels, etc. The largest phone will easily fit. Unfortunately, I have hips...and they aren't narrow. The belt will not stay on my not-narrow hips. I tried it under my shirt, I tried it over my shirt. I will say it was better on the day I wore a shirt with texture, where the material wasn't as slick. But you end up constantly adjusting it. I'm wondering, does anybody use one with success? Or maybe after I while, you get used to it?
I'd tell you how I heard the best quote this week, one I intend to remember and use. I had stopped in Walmart (I know!) and was checking out at the Garden Center. The cashier was returning from the greenhouse and said "Lawdy, it's so hot out there even my eyelids is a sweatin'. Amen, Sista. I couldn't have said it better.
What would you tell me over coffee?
