The most interesting things happen when you are not looking

Somehow, yesterday , they day kind of slipped away. The mainstream school kids were off school but we had planned to have school anyway. Began the morning with some Wii fit , I unlocked a longer run (20 min), and I was amazed that I could push myself to do it . I mean, what a great feeling of empowerment ! Yes, it is running indoors and not the same as running outside for real, but it is a thousand times more than I belived myslf capable of a week ago !

Breakfast was 1/2 c cottage cheese, 3/4 cup Flax plus cereal, 1 c blueberries, water& coffee

I was so proud of myself and son decided he really wanted to try the running feature more himself, so I told him to go for it and suddenly it was a little too late to get in our planned lessons for the day. So we declared it to be something I refer to as nosy school, where son is allowed to do anything he desires as long as he is learning something and can show me proof of what he is learning. He decided to investigate Japan, and then it was time for lunch

Veggie omlette (egg beaters,mushrooms, onion,red peeper,zuchini,white asparagus)
apple, water

I decided to take advantage of the lull and straighten out a dresser drawer, leaving son to his own studies. I got involved in trying to match up some mismatched socks when son announced "Mom, I am reading that math book". Hmm, I had no recollection of a math book other than one of the textbooks, which would be very cool but odd for him to read. I asked which one , and he said "the one that talks about nipples". Suddenly, ,the mismatches socks were forgotten. I head out to the diningroom and asked him what book ? He shows me a book called Sex after 50. My son is Autistic, and becomes Mr Literal at different times. So in his odd little brain, because it had a number in the title and was not written in a fiction style, it was a math book. So, we changed plans again and watched CNN for the pre inaguration coverage.

Dinner was Pineapple salsa chicken,bulgar, corn,tossed salad,water -I forgot to snap a picture.

snacks were as follows
Green tea
Nonfat yogert with cocoa powder, spenda and oat bran
celery and hummus
Sugar free pudding

Wii fit 35 min ( 5 min Balance, 30 min running)

Filling foods 11
water 13

Today we will catch the inauguration coverage and get outside for a walk amidst the regularly schedualed school events. Then tonight is another episode of The Biggest Loser- yay !

The math book thing made me giggle. Kids!

My daughter is involved with our local Native American ceremony house where they sometimes offer classes and workshops. My daughter attended a parenting class for teens. She thought it was a class for teens to deal with their parents, but it turned out to be the other way around.

She came home tried to have a mother/daughter sex talk with me (her being the mother) and handed me condoms. Then told me not to tell Ross I have them because then he might get the idea I'm on of THOSE kind of ladies and try to pressure me into sex.

I don't know why I thought of this... I guess the kids and sex thing... heh.
