Megged

I've been Megged.

I'm exhausted. I ache. I have sore muscles in places I never knew muscles existed. It's undeniable. I've been Megged.

The skate rink is closing for the season (and probably forever... sob...) so we headed off for a final skate. No 9:00am skating class today so we took our time, had a power brekky and arrived about 10:30. Skated up and hit the rink. For the next 3 1/2 hours we skated. Well Amy skated, rested, skated and rested, and K and I took turns escorting Meg around the rink. She didn't stop at all. Sure, she fell over a couple dozen times and she waited for me on a barrier cushion when I got left behind but she didn't leave the rink at all. Wow. And yes, I got left behind. I spent a lot of the day like this:

skating along behind Meg....

She loved it. Even when she fell over she was enjoying it:

Yes, that's a peace sign.

After all that activity I had my fingers crossed for a nap on the way home. Unfortunately I was the only one who felt drousy and we got home singing all the way and then the girls made snowmen and a snow mountain, K cut wood and I was guilted out of my nap and into industriousness by it all and did some housework. I swear, I'm a pretty active person but Meg just leaves me for dead. She's all go, go, go from morning to night.

And keeping up with her? Well, after the girls have gone to bed I usually just collapse. Today I'm feeling like I've been hit by a truck.

Worse than that.

I've been Megged.



And just because this blog is getting a little Meg-heavy: she may spend more time resting than her sister but she sure knows how to throw a pose while she's doing it:

Otsukaresamadeshita! I WISH we had a skating rink... but K wouldn't let me skate anyway, in case I break a limb and am left unable to run the household!

Skating is so much fun! I suck at it- and have only ice skated like three times (once in the eiffel tower!) but it is always fun!

It sounds exhausting though! 3.5 hours wow! Love that she did the peace sign when she was fallen over.

Oh and Amy is as cute as a button!

3.5 hours?!? Wow... no wonder you were feeling exhausted and wanted to nap!!

I have only been skating once in my life but loved it. I definitely wish I could do it more often. Maybe it's something I could start to do with Baby N when she gets a little older because I am sure there is a skating rink in Hamamatsu City somewhere...

anchan- ha ha ha! I mentioned to K that if I broke my wrist I wouldn't be able to drive... he looked rather horrified!

Lulu- ice skating at the Eiffel tower? wow. Asama onsen is not quite the eiffel tower I think but still fun. And Amy thanks you. :)

Nay- icerinks are not so common in Oz huh? Hope you find one in Hamamatsu as it really is fun! And they have iceskates in the smallest sizes! I was standing behind someone who ordered size 16 shoes! That would fit about a 2yo!
