Considering each day felt longer than the last this week, the week itself flew by. WTH? Time is so relative.....
Last weekend I had a big "To Do" list....I must confess, I didn't get it all done. I don't feel bad about it. Why should I? The chores will always be there, but, how much longer will my kids want to cuddle with me, or have me read them a book?
My Mom, years ago, gave me a little plaque that says " Good Mothers have sticky floors, filthy ovens, and Happy Kids...." I tend to live by that. Not that my floors are coated with mystery substances or anything like that...but if the laundry stays in the basket a little longer than I like, I'm just fine with that.
My sister gave me a plaque about motherhood too....."Raising children is like being pecked to death by a chicken"......................
.....that one is just as true!!!!
Sorry, tangent, getting back on track..............
Where was I...weekend.....yes, the List.
~get through the kids' dressers THIS weekend.....I think they grew again this week, so, it's probably good that I didn't get to it before.
~more baking and cooking....the growing children ( especially the 12 year old man-child and my 8 year old) ate pretty much everything.
~more laundry......Mt. Washmore is as enduring as the Rockies
~play. Yup, it's on the list. I see a Just Dance/Wii Sports resort challenge in my future.
~ clean the bathrooms...OMG, I hate cleaning bathrooms.....3 boys + a husband.....I wish none of them had ever learned to pee standing up!
Saturday is my BL Challenge required rest day, so no workout tomorrow.
Our BL challenges this week are:
30 Jumping jacks
5- 1 minute wall sits
10 minutes of weights
30 minutes of cardio
We also have to try a new freggie, or try one that we didn't like as a child.....in the running are avacado, eggplant, or artichoke? We live in a pretty small prairie town, so exotic choices are limited.
Suggestions are welcome!
