We are half way through the marking period and no D's or F's from either child. Whoo hoo! This is a first, I believe.
We are busy. I am tired. But I am enjoying this season because like all of the others, it doesn't last and it goes by so quickly.
I joined the gym almost 2 weeks ago and have not gone yet. I need someone to go with me...just once, then I will be fine. I chalk that up to being the middle child. I was never alone. I had Michael or Jeannette. So I believe that tomorrow will be my day.
It was a good summer. I call it FAT and HAPPY. My clothes all fit tight, even the elastic waist band yoga pants. Too much ice-cream. And now we have Gertrude Hawk candy bars that Amanda has been selling. I KNOW that I am her best customer.
Someone told me that they have one piece (there are 5 pieces) per bar. Ha, do you just have one sip of your beer or wine and say no more? Who does that? I mean, ONE PIECE?! Really, who are you!?
I am approaching 46 and those extra pounds are hanging on for dear life.
When am I going to fit in the gym? You tell me. Here is my schedule:
Alarm goes off at 5:15 am.
I snooze until 5:30.
Have devotions with Amanda at 6:10.
She leaves at 6:25
Wake Daniel at 6:30.
Check email and Facebook.
Wake Daniel at 6:45.
Make toast and lunch for Daniel.
Have devotions with Daniel at 7:10
Drop Daniel at school at 7:35
From 7:40 to 8:15, I fold laundry, get lunch together or eat yogurt.
Hang with Robert from 8:20 am to 4 pm
Homework, dinner and activities.
Bedtime between 9:30 and 10. It's usually closer to 10 pm.
Sunday night - Sunday school, church, soccer.
Then Amanda's youth group from 7 to 9 pm.
Monday night - Tutoring and Boy Scouts
Tuesday night - Curtis & Daniel have soccer
Wednesday night - Curtis & Daniel have soccer
Thursday night - Tutoring and Irish Dance
Friday night - AWANA
Saturday - soccer daytime (NO EVENING ACTIVITY!)
I have adjusted to the schedule. I don't mind all of the running around. Like I said, I know that this season of my life will be over very soon so I am enjoying the time in the car with KLove.
The worse time to go to the gym (I was told) is between 4 and 7 pm. That's good. That doesn't work because it is prime time homework/dinner time.
I am thinking that Friday night, Saturday during the day and any time before 6 am during the week will be good for me.
And I guess I need to divorce sugar. I just love it so.

Me and Starbucks (Caramel Frap)
