Ok, so a few of you are aware that I am doing what is called the C25K. Its an exercise program meant to make you go from being a couch (C) potato to being able to run a 5K in a matter of 9 weeks. You are supposed to go every other day. Today I was supposed to go.

I'm 28 yrs old and not allowed to go out.because its too dark...SERIOUSLY?!? I'm not taking the kids, its dark, and my middle guy, who I normally take, tends to go ahead alot of the time, and I didn't feel like yelling at him to slow down every 5 seconds. I don't want to take the dogs because unless I tie them to the stroller they cut in front of me and trip me, have to smell everything, ya know, typical dogs. This is a set time thing, job X amount of time walk X amount of time. Not condusive for dog walking. I live in a quiet neighborhood, everyone knows eachother, we have 0 crime by way of assault and all that, and all the street are pretty well lit, on top of the fact that I get to a lit parking lot and go in there since its smooth. UGH! Now my time line is all screwed up!

Here's the kicker, I'm not allowed to go out, because I'm a grown woman, but I'm supposed to let my 3 kids go out whenever they get on my parents nerves, because "they need to run" without supervision

ugh I wish! Hubby said I should have just walked out, except he doesn't realize that I would be the one living with the repercussions, not him.

Psshh, I would rethink my living situation. The best thing about being an adult is to be able to do what you want. I would have definitely went! My husband tried to tell me not to ride my bike on some back roads by my house once during day light. That didn't stand well with me. I am an adult, I wanted to ride my bike for excerise and I will go if I want, because why...I am an adult and you are not my father. In this case it is your parent, but still that is where being an adult comes in!!!
