5 hours, 2 Four year olds, 2 planes and one Me

makes for one very interesting travel day.

Up at 3 AM and not having slept well, I got ready, packed the car, woke DH and the kids and we were out the door by 4:30 AM.

The kids did well, but I was just spent. I slept about an hour on the way to Houston and the kids slept maybe 45 minutes.

On the way to Ontario, the kids got a little antsy but all in all they did good and I was not stressed. Well maybe a little, due the fact that we visited the bathroom literally, 15 times. INSANE.

My step dad picked us up and the twins were out for the hour ride to Simi. We totally bummed it and hung out with my youngest sister and my cute niece for most of the afternoon.

Then when the parentals came home we headed to my fave Mex place, and I did well, had fajitas, and very little chips. But I had to 'ritas on the rocks. Yumm.

The twins went to sleep around 9 and I followed shortly.

I ran this morning and I think it was a combo of being tired, jet lagged and the 'ritas, that made my run of 3.5 miles difficult but I got it done.

Hopefully tomorrows run will turn on exceptionally better and longer.

Monday's Run:
5 miles / ???? forgot my HRM
Wednesday's Run:
3.52 miles / 45:33
