I’m tuckered out – estimating I walked about 5 miles today. Too much for this stage of the game! I’m going to counter it by spending the next few hours on the couch : )
I met new-to-Cville Alicia for a walk and we looped all around town. She is about to start a PhD program at UVA! [This is us all freshened up before lunch – I was a sweaty mess after those first 4 miles!]
Necessary refreshment while I showered. I didn’t want to make my legs walk back downtown for lunch, but driving and paying for parking was just not an option. I’d have to walk anyways!
My mom said this morning when I was talking about this waiting game: “Do you have some girlfriends you could meet for lunch?”
Why actually I already had a lunch planned! A few pregnant friends, a mom friend, Alicia and I all got together for lunch at Eppie’s today. My friend Kate [who is due the day before me] didn’t make it because she might be having her BABY today!
Lynsie also joined us with Gabe and Declan.
Lots of coloring going on! Parenting practice!
I always flip flop between the Santa Monica salad and the veg plate so I got a hybrid today. Just now occurred to me that there wasn’t a star protein in this lunch – I should have gotten the black beans instead of the greens : )
The salad is my fav with goat cheese, dates and corn
And on the side I got sweet potato and collards
And as always, the plate comes with their cake-like cornbread!
Yum + filling!
I have several bits of writing to do, but I am postponing them for a little R&R with my feet up. Mom also keeps telling me to rest!
