January 15, 2013

I can't believe we are already half a month into January.  Where on EARTH does the time go?  UGH.  My Mom warned me this would happen as I got older and had children -- boy was she not kidding.  The days just fly by and are over before you know it.  And days like today seem like they are just gone in the blink of an eye. 

I had a MASSIVELY hard time getting up this morning.  I'm not sure why.  I'm not sure if its this weird rainy weather or if I didn't sleep enough or what, but I just had SUCH a hard time getting up.  Not the first time I got up to get my oldest off to school.  I got up fine then.  But when I got up to take my youngest to gym (which we missed), I just felt like a Mack truck had run me over.  I did finally get up and get going, though.  We did go to the kiddy gym to straighten out the accounts -- apparently my old card had expired and I had forgotten to change it there.  So glad it wasn't a major bill and they were really happy I came to fix it.  I told them we would be coming back next week for oldest (this week was some sort of showcase so it was fine that we missed Monday) but youngest would be back just to do a few make-up classes and we would decide then if we wanted to continue.  So for now, they have stopped the payments.  Very nice of them!  We are also trying to decide if we think he is ready for Pre-K.  And if he is, do I go back to work or continue to stay home... decisions decisions decisions...  After there, we hit Home Depot and then lunch with the In-laws.  Then back home to get oldest off of the bus, snack time, workout time, and so on and etc.  Busy busy.  And good.  It was a good day.

And yes, you read that right.  I worked out!  AGAIN!  That's 3 whole times in under 7 days!  Be proud.  OH SO PROUD!  LOL  I'm trying.  I did a double dipper tonight by doing the bike AND some Pilates.  Go me!  HA HA HA!  I'm also keeping up with it on my calendar.  That's nice.  I really would like to make this a habit.  Speaking of habits.  Diet has been pretty darn good even with eating out today.  I got a salad with grilled chicken and the dressing on the side.  It was good, but I only ate half at lunch and half for dinner.  NOM NOM NOM.  I am trying really hard to get myself back in gear and on a good roll.  I want to get a routine to where this is just a part of my day and stick with it.  I know things will come up, but the more I do it, the more likely I am to keep doing it. 

So... my hair is dark.  Very dark.  Black actually.  :O  It wasn't suppose to be black, but it is.  But that is ok.  It was shocking at first, but I think that was mostly because it had been SO long since I had colored that my hair was seriously faded with a lot of root showing.  Like, A LOT.  With my hair getting so long now, I'm finding it harder and harder to convince myself to color it.  It's just so annoying!!!  I mean, I know how, I have the stuff, but dang if it doesn't drive me nuts.  I was telling the hubby since I don't really go out anymore with friends that I'm going to start taking that money that I would spend going shopping, driving around, going out for food and drinks and use it on my hair!  LOL  But we will see.

Oh!  Weight this AM was 189.5!  Woot!  Happy with that.  Especially since Aunt Flow is here.  So far, she has been kind to me, so I'm on good footing with her right this minute.  lol  And did I mention I finished one entire side of oldest's blanket?  SERIOUSLY happy with that, but I still have a lot to do.  SIGH.

On a final note, I wanted to say that I read an article the other day about people being so darn busy, and it really struck a cord with me.  Basically, the whole article talked about how people in this day and age do too much.  And it hit me that maybe I'm NOT wasting too many hours in a day.  Maybe, just maybe, it's just my natural rhythm and that is OK.  I don't have to go go go all the time or go on everyone else's schedule.  Up until I was 25, I did that (except for when I was a little kid before school, but even then I had to go to the sitter's, etc.) and then I had to work my schedule around kiddos and hubby.  Which is still, really, what I'm doing now.  So, who cares if I blow an hour or two here or there as long as I am HAPPY.  In the end, that is what matters.  I want to be happy so that our whole family can be happy.  And you know what?  It's ok not to be busy all the darn time and to just be happy.  I'm not saying you should be lazy, but I feel so much better realizing that I don't have to have a jam packed full of something every minute of every day calendar.  I don't know why I didn't realize it before.  But being somewhat laid back helps me to be well, somewhat laid back!  It gives me options when things come up and allows us to do things we normally couldn't.  So, I'm no longer going to stress over it -- I'm going to be happy and do what works for our family.

Oh my... I've rambled on and on and on!  I guess I should go.  G'night all!
