You know what makes a mess? When your kid dumps a whole bottle of shampoo in the tub when you're not looking. So I didn't really like that.
But.....I finally broke 500 miles today, halfway to my 1,000 miles in 2010 goal! I did it while wearing my latest running acquisition, a Nuu-Muu exercise dress in olive green and pink, that I won in a giveaway at Laura's blog, My Reason to Run. I have to say it's really comfy to run in, I like how the arm holes are cut small, so there is little room for chafing. Because I'm tall, I did pair it up with some boy-cut bathing suit bottoms, otherwise I'd be flashing a bit too much skin! It also makes for a cute bathing suit cover up, which mixes things up nicely because we've been hitting the pool practically every afternoon.
As I've mentioned before, although my name says otherwise, I'm not a very good sleeper. I'll be tired when I get in bed, but then my mind kicks in, Mike starts snoring, and the next thing I know, it's two a.m. I've been a fan of Badger Balm for years, especially their lip balm tins, so I was excited for the chance to try out their Badger Sleep Balm. It's made with organic lavender and bergamot, and at bedtime you rub a bit on your temples or face, or wherever you want to smell its lovely scent. Which, by the way, is not overpowering at all, otherwise Mike would complain. I've been using it for almost 3 weeks now, I put a bit on the back of my neck, and on my temples. I didn't realize how well it's been helping me to settle down until I forgot to pack it when we went to the Adirondacks. It took me forever to fall asleep, and then it was like a light bulb went off, and I thought "I forgot the BALM!" I haven't forgotten it since, it has a permanent spot on my bedside table.
