Flash Friday

16 Nov

Man this week has gone way to fast for me – Not sure about you! It seems like it was just Monday!

On Tuesday night my husband told me we were actually going to attend his military ball that I was told we would not be going to. It is tonight. I had to borrow shoes, Nick is going to perform surgery on my dress (he is a medic and will be stiching it – HA!), I will be doing my own hair, and I will wear gloves to disquise my out grown nails that need attention.

Wednesday Abby had her Awana Grand Prix – lots of tears over no trophy – but I think she will get over it just fine. Ryley gets to pick a matchbox car and run her Grand Prix next week. Hopefully she will do a little better! (yes my kid is wierd and rocked camo boots, courderoy skinny pants, and a flourescent pink shirt with her red vest, sigh)

Thursday was kind of relaxing and I tried to read a couple books and ended ups tuck on the Laura Bush book I had purchased of $4 at Barnes & Noble. I need to read more books to myself as the Bible is great and the kids books are good – but I want somthing a little different

Today is Friday – Hopefully an opportunity is still available and I will hear good news.

I do have some exciting news starting next week and through the rest of this year and on – I have been picked for two new blogging opportunities on different sites – one starting next week and one starting January.  I have some review opportunities that are FANTASTIC and I can’t wait to share them as well.  You are going to love this stuff I know it!

I cannot wait for you all to share in on the fun and awesomeness I have to share and It all starts next week!!! WAHOO!

What do you have new going on?

Talkative Tuesday

23 Oct

This is my excuse to pusblish a list like post – and for those you that know me – you know I love a good list!

I did not get in my Yoga last night as I forgot I had class from 7:30-9:20 last night and it is on chat. It was more interactive than my last class to I couldn’t even attempt to do it while in class.

I only slept 7 hours last night – which is not typical for the pregnant chick right now. However, I feel like I have more energy today than I normally do!

I have been getting the girls up at the same time for about a week and a half now and it seems to be getting easier! I also think that starting them off with eating first thing has been better than trying to get them dressed, brushing their teeth and such first.

I am OCD still and have a timer set for 15 minute increments that they girls have to get certain tasks done in. I think it is working though and it helps me!

My Abnormal Psych class started last night and I really enjoyed it – I keep thinking with each class I am in the right field of study – now to get studying for the MAT test I need to take to get the last of my graduate paperwork in line.

I already have a Bachelors and was halfway through my Masters for Business – and then decided it wasn’t what I wanted.  I want something that I can take with me and as much as I love fitness – I don’t want my hobby to become too much of a business.

My energy is gaining folks so watch out. I got all my household chores done yesterday that I have been slacking on and I think that it is a sign that I put make-up on today. Usually I don’t have that much energy 🙂

Work has been steady busy which makes for nice days that don’t drag too much. Only when I think it is Wednesday and it is only Tuesday does it feel that way – ahem, today. I just then ponder my workload and forget about it!

I have a couple new ideas for myself for this blog – and I hope you notice them and love them!

I am working on the move to self-hosted and I think it is scarey, but also fun! Who else out there is doing it?

I am working on erading a couple new books – who else out there has a good read for me?

Time to buckle down folks – business calls and Zumba is tonight! Yeah!!!

 

The Weekly Chase #11

22 Oct

Okay – so can I tell you how awesome it is to be a part of the group of girls from The Weekly Chase? It is nice to have those I can bounce ideas off of – help is always appreciated! Want to join? Check out Melissa’s Link up HERE!

I did not participate last week due to crazy things life throws our way!

Here ya go:

#1 – Get Zumba in 2 times this week! I am going to see if my boss will let me elave early on Tuesdays and Thursdays to get my girls so that I can bring them to Zumba with me and then my husband will just be in charge of dinner 🙂

#2 – Use the school gym to get in walking on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes one other day of the week – this will allow me to get in an extra hour of paid time off the following week – this will make it so I don’ thave to take shorter lunches on Tuesday or Thursday going forward to get my girls early! I am going to try and use this to my advantage!

#3 – Monday and Wednesday – I need to get some Yoga in – this will help me rest and relax!

#4 – Continue the purge people – I will get more stuff taken care of and get rid of it!

#5 MORE H2O!

I am now 13 weeks and 5 days.  My energy has hit another low and I think that it is part depression and part baby. The winter is setting in here with snow flurries about every other day and it is so stinking dark in the mornings now I can’t stand it. I was warned about this happening by the doctor and I can really feel it here lately. My husband says I am such a downer – but when you are used to summer 10 months of the year and you really got 2 days this year – You would be a downer as well. I will be buying this thing they call a “Happy Light” in the near future.

I had my first Parent Teacher Conference yesterday. I am going to admit I was a little scared but I now good to go. My daughter is the exact child I thought she was and I am glad that I know her as well as the person who spends most of the day with her. She is only in Kindergarten, but I take her learning very serious. I also take her self-esteem very serious so I was shocked when I was informed about a couple of mean girls in the class. Abby is not part of it, but seems to occasionally get sucked in – more to protect herself from it.  I had a feeling this was happening, but I was also glad when it seems that her teacher shared with me that my thoughts were valid. Being a parent to a young child is kind of like being a mind reader!

I am going through some major de-cluttering. My husband irritates me because it doesn’t matter how much stuff he has – but if I have stuff it can’t be seen. UGH! I am so irritated by it that I just want the stuff gone! I am obviously going to keep stuff – but I am going to get rid of the stuff that most seems to bug him and them go through what I do have get rid of the stuff I have been thinking about doing something with. I need to do something or get rid of it. Anyone want crafty stuff?

So that is what I got going on along with class that starts next week. I am excited about that actually. It is 2 hours a night that I can get with no interruption at all. It is exciting to me. How sad, right?

I am still entertaining the idea of a gym membership just so that I can get out of the house and have some me time as every time I sit down to Yoga kids get involved and not in a productive manner!

 

 

 

 

Blogtober and Vlogtober Info Coming At Ya!

The Weekly Chase #9

17 Sep

School starting, Girl Scouts starting, Awana starting, a new routine, a new routine, a new routine….unhappykids and unhappy mother.

SO I am forgetting what I have stated I wanted to do so far or what goals I had created. We are starting over as we have few priorities that I am going to be watching out for this week and from that I will make my goals for next week!

My family – I need to make sure that my girls are getting enough sleep and what I can do to make mornings easier. I am so tired of crying kids every morning.  Maybe we need to get an exercise routine in place for them? Like Yoga for some winding down?

Me – I have been feeling really sore and I need to drink more water – I need to make sure I am taken care of too.

Staying In Touch – I feel I need to do a better job of this. I also feel that it isn’t totally up to me – but I can’t complain if I don’t try. I just feel like I am losing out and I am not sure if I am the only one that cares.

Routine – I have to really figure this out….will work still fit in after #3? How do I make everything work now?

Hopefully some look out on this week will provide some good goals for me next week!
