Today was a better day. It started off much better than some I have had over the last couple weeks. Those rough times were some things that were out of my control and some were completely from my own doing. I don’t like that feeling cause it is now something that I cannot change, but have to deal with. Its hard to deal with something that you know you shouldn’t have done, but didn’t see it the exact same way when it happened. I am thankful for second chances that come with changes to never repeat the past.
And go! I move forward with memories, but not constantly looking back over my shoulder. We can only be better by not forgetting, but not dwelling, and always learning.
I got up this morning and made the bed so I wouldn’t get back in it. I made myself coffee and drank it while I made my husband’s from he Keurig he bought me for Christmas. I know it was something I wanted, but I think he likes it as well.
The kids got up one by one, all before they actually needed to be up. This is impressive, but I am hoping that doesn’t mean we will have catastrophic meltdowns later. Bailey was in great humor all morning and played so well I was able to get a jump start on my work so I could finish earlier than normal and enjoy some time writing. I like blogging for myself and I like blogging for clients – but when I can’t even get creative with my own words, it is impossible to do it for others. True story.
I was able to pop in a DVD and workout for the first time in a while. This is due to my own sheer laziness of not wanting to get out of bed. At. All. Seriously. I picked Brazil Butt Lift. I have laughed and laughed at the idea of this workout for so long. I didn’t ever do it because I knew I would feel silly. Once it started I couldn’t help but laugh. The instructor is too much. The kids enjoyed watching me, and I stopped laughing shortly after it started because I knew that while he sounded silly, it was no joke. My thighs burn. Getting my shake this afternoon when I stopped working – ouch. Stairs will not be my friend tomorrow either I am sure of it.
She is still napping now and I am able to get in some writing, but soon I will need to be outside to enjoy some vitamin D and get my kids off the bus. I like to be out there before the bus even comes down our road. Silly, I know. I just like to be there so it isn’t a last minute thing of “oh crap the kids are home!” type of thing. I think Bailey likes to get out and play with me before the big kids get home too. She usually gets about 45 minutes to play alone and with the dog. That is until he runs away exploring like he always does. This leads to me having a heart attack cause I can’t find him and he won’t come home until I have called him no less than 31 times. Dang dog.
4:30 brings homework time and then dinner making time. I try to get these things all wrapped up by 6:15 so that they can get a shower and about 30 minutes of reading in before getting to bed between 7:00 and 7:30. Seems early, but they have to get up early for the bus and I hate horrible mornings. I do. So I suck up the weekdays that my kids go to bed early so that they are fully rested. I get my time on the weekend when they are running around like animals being crazy.
This weekend is Valentine’s Day as you all know – and I got them each little bags of stuff. Nothing major since I have been making $100 from my husband stretch like crazy. I got them a few odds and ends from the Dollar General. I am sure half of it will be forgotten and left around to be thrown away and stepped on. I just know that they will be happy the day that they actually get it though and it is all that matters.
I have some things I want to do for the husband. I didn’t spend much but I think that I what I do have for him will mean something more than a store bought whatever he doesn’t really want anyways. Plus getting to spend time with him is well worth every bit of everything.
What are you planning to do this weekend?by
