So, I'm going to start with the walk.
Yesterday, my dear friend Ira (Not eye-ra, but ir-a... because her name is Iryna) invited me to join her on a "short" long walk. I say "short" long walk because we intended to walk to The Coffee Shop (yep. That's the name of the place) and she PROMISED it was only 1.8 miles from her house. She Googled it.
So we set out on empty tummies to go to The Coffee Shop where we would eat a little treat and maybe sip some tea while listening to Sufjan and playing with our babies. At first, we were happy. The sun was shining. It was only in the 60s and we were getting lots of fresh air (or toxic car fumes from the road we walked along, but I'm optimistic). After about 30 minutes of walking, Clara began to fuss. I knew she was hungry, but we were walking! What was I supposed to do?
I could go into lots of detail and stretch this out with loads of hyperbole, but I think I'll just cut to the chase today. The walk ended up being almost 4 miles one direction. Either Google lied or Ira's delusional. But, we did have a nice lunch.
You can't go to The Coffee Shop and NOT get a cupcake. They won Cupcake Wars. It's got to be sacrilegious or something.
The walk home was grueling. We were fat and happy and wanted a nap. We still had two babies to tote (and who both pooped on this trip) and it had gotten hot. Like, 77 degrees hot. That may not sound like much but when you're walking in winter clothes for MILES in that weather, it's not comfortable. We made it home long after we had expected and let the girls out of their wheeled cages to play. Or, to slobber on each others' toys and claw each other with their long nails. Again. Optimist here.
