Night With Nate

5 Week Workout Challenge: Week 4, Day 3 Night With Nate

We got some new nail polish called Ella and Mila that is low on the toxicity scale.  It’s the least toxic I’ve been able to find that is also affordable and works well.  Cat painted Princess’ and my toes and put cute little feather decals on too.

After running around with the kids all day and Nate’s long work days, it can be hard for us to find time alone.  I thought it would be fun to join him for a night-time walk before bed.

It was a beautiful, warm night.  Being as hot as it was, I wore my pajamas on our walk.  My pj’s were cute matching shorts and a t-shirt, acceptable for wearing in public.  I personally wouldn’t be comfortable during the daytime, but I didn’t think we would be seeing many people.  As it turned out, since it was such a warm night, there were a lot of people out taking walks.

Nate and I walked up to a gas station where he got something to drink.  In the harsh lights, I felt awkward in my little PJ shorts, but I tried to play it off like it didn’t bother me.

As we walked back toward home, I could hear thunder rumbling in the distance.  Beyond the trees, I could see occasional flashes of lightning.  The storm looked like it had passed us over for the night.

We met a man out walking who asked us if our power was out.  It turns out, that half the city was without power.  We chatted with him for a little while before heading the last couple blocks home.  Fortunately, our power was unaffected.

Unfortunately, poor Princess had a small fever and had been asking for me while we were gone.  Cat said she had been doing mostly well but had only gotten hot shortly before we got home.  Poor kiddo was either sick with a virus or was having an allergic reaction to something mildly corny she ate earlier in the day.

What do you do for alone time when money and time are short?  Do you enjoy taking walks at night, or do you prefer going in the daytime?
