While there are many more mommy/daughter runs ahead, I think that might have been our last grasshopper run. This morning when we came downstairs, we found a new little friend sleeping soundly in a jar on the counter.
Apparently the hubby found this furry little gal (of course it's a girl) before he left for work. We have made her a comfortable little home and plan on letting her stay as long as she seems content. I am much happier with a caterpillar than a grasshopper living in my house. And of course she inherited the grasshopper's name (Avrie Hallie Emma Sophie Gracie Candice); maybe we'll call her Fuzzy for short. I'll have to run that by The Princess though.
I'm considering a little cross training for today. My legs need a break from the double jogger, and running while The Princess was at school didn't happen because I had too many errands. When I pulled out a Christmas CD this morning, I realized I've been missing my running tunes (I don't listen to anything when I'm with my girls). I also realized it's time to add a little Christmas music to my playlist. Yes, I am one of those annoying people that starts listening to Christmas music and decorates for Christmas as soon as the Halloween decorations come down. Since my hubby isn't a big fan of Thanksgiving and we are all crazy for Christmas at our house, we try to enjoy the season as long as we can.
Anyhow, thinking about my running tunes gave me the idea to share the last ten songs I added to my playlist. You are welcome to do the same if you have a blog so maybe we can all get some ideas for new running songs. And as you can see, my ten recent iTunes purchases reveal a little of the runnerd in me:
Misery - Maroon 5
Club Can't Handle Me (feat. David Guetta) - Flo Rida
The Only Exception - Paramore
Billionaire (Glee Cast Version)
Empire State of Mind (Glee Cast Version)
The Adventure - Angels & Airwaves
New in Town - Little Boots
I Like It (feat. Pitbull) - Enrique Iglesius
Animal - Neon Trees
I'm too lazy to link to each one on iTunes, but they are easy to find. If you have any trouble, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will forward you a link.
