|Uh oh. Mommy's tapering again.|
As Goofy got closer, I told friends that I dreaded how bad I would be for this taper, being that it was more miles. Until today, I actually thought I was doing pretty well. I mean, my child spent several hours in the middle of the night puking Saturday night, and I actually canceled my Sunday run rather than freak out and assume the world was out to get me and ruin my race(s).
I have noticed, though, that I am rather PMSy lately. My husband bears the worst of it. He might say something just wrong and I snap a bit in reply. Many things that normally wouldn't phase me are really rather irritating.
But, today. Today takes the cake. Apparently, my taper madness comes with memory loss or something. At least, that's the story. I put the dog out to go potty before leaving for my moms group with my kiddo. When I got home from moms group 3 hours later, I didn't even notice that my kiddo and I weren't experiencing the happy dog greetings when we first got home. I started making the kiddo her lunch. As I was putting her plate on the high chair, I noticed the dog standing outside on the back patio by the door. I may have swore a bit in my head as I realized I had not put her out since coming home. To top it off? My back door was left unlocked too. Luckily, I have a lab that can tolerate cold, and today was a much warmer and sunnier day then it's been in a week. Her coat was slightly cool, but she was completely fine and happy to see me. It's possible I bribed her with a bone to forget the entire incident.
|I knew she had a bone hidden somewhere!|
I leave for Florida in 2.5 days. Let's hope my family survives that long! LOL!
Have you experienced taper madness? What types of things did you experience?
Please tell me that I am not alone!
