My legs are tired. I ran three miles this morning (hamstrings still sore from Yoga Booty Ballet (!) the other day), walked maybe 8 blocks round trip to and from the American History Museum, and spent several hours standing while in the museum. I think it’s the standing that did it. And the tiredness only kicked in while driving home. All of a sudden it was an effort to keep my foot on the gas. Pathetic. I certainly don’t regret the museum. I got to hang out with Jess, Chuck, and Cody, and we had a good time. Of course. We didn’t get to hang out long enough, as far as I’m concerned. They may not agree. 🙂
I came home to John, who looks burned out (burnt out? When do you use burned vs. burnt?)* on homework. And he’s not done! He’s practicing his guitar right now, and we’ll probably have dinner soon (I suggested we go to IHOP for dinner – he’s very happy about that). But he may have to go back to his homework later tonight, and he’ll definitely have to work on it tomorrow. Sucks that this is taking up his whole weekend.
By the way, the Americans at War exhibit at the Museum of American History is neverending! Lots of neat stuff. Too much, perhaps.
*Google to the rescue! In general use, this is more of a British English vs. American English thing. The British tend to use burnt and Americans use burned. There’s also some past tense vs. past participle stuff out there, but I’m going with the general use thing for now.
