As far as the race plan dilemma for this weekend, only Marlene seemed to understand that trading days isn't a workable option if Jerry and I are striving to give one another equal "alone/sleep" time when she noted: "I was going to suggest day-trading, but then I realized that doesn't really work - then Jerry would be up early with Norah one day so you can race and one day so you can sleep in. ;)"
Right. Jerry up early two days in a row, and Jess with the "luxury" of racing one day and sleeping in the next. Not a trade he'd make...unless I sweeten the deal with some sort of lurid promise...but I'm too tired for that.
We'll see about my decision regarding racing this weekend. I think it will be a last-minute call.
In other news, I had a doctor check up this morning (baby brewing is humming along just fine) and while we were in the waiting room and Jerry was chasing Norah around, I was ignoring them both (hey, it was HIS idea to give her a sucker to distract her, so HE had to deal with the resultant sugar-induced mania), and I was reading an article in Fit Pregnancy about running and pregnancy. The article was discussing how strenuous exercise, like running (or, as they referred to it: jogging), is perfectly healthy during pregnancy -- even beneficial! It described all the great aspects that a woman can enjoy from strenuous exercise during her pregnancy, and I had a little snicker over the article since it presented its discussion as if this were landmark, groundbreaking news.
Sometimes, I feel so superior to pregnancy literature ;)
