March Stone Mountain Hike

Time: 31:55 up, 27:27 down
Weather: sunny, decidedly less windy than the previous month.

March’s Stone Mountain Hike happened on the 22nd of March. We planned it to coincide with a party friends of ours were having because we knew we’d end up pigging out completely and were happy to bank some calories.

I was really happy to get to the top this time. Even though our time got better from the first hike, I still felt like I was going to die. The Nerd laughed that I carried my water bottle up, but frankly, if I’m not drinking on my way up, I’d feel much worse. There was a science festival going on at Stone Mountain Park, so there were a bunch of groups of Boy and Girl Scouts climbing. No one in particular stood out, unfortunately.

We missed April because it got weirdly busy even though we had very little actually planned. Here’s to getting back in the saddle for May!

Today I had my annual visit to the ladydoctor. All went well as I’m generally pretty healthy. I did have to change my name because of the whole getting married thing, so I wasn’t too surprised when the doctor asked me if we were thinking about having kids.

Note: The gynecologist is the only person I will accept that question from because it is, literally, her business.

At any rate, I told her that we weren’t planning on getting pregnant any time soon. She smiled and nodded and said, “Okay, well, when you do, let us know and we can go over what you need to do.”

I know that she meant so we could discuss things like genetic testing and pre-natal vitamins and all that rigmarole…but it took every fiber of my being to not say, “Pretty sure I know what we need to do. Done it before. Isn’t too difficult. They even make videos!”

Before you ask, yes, I have spent most of today giggling about that.
