I wrote this when the kids were asleep and Blake was at a church meeting.
Surprise, I haven’t written much lately even after my post saying I was reasserting myself to write more. I love writing. It is one of my favorite things to do. It’s just tough to do with laundry piles and kids yelling at me. So, I wait and at night I try and I am tired and The Goldbergs is mindless. Writing is not. But I always feel better after writing. Not so much after watching The Goldbergs! Ha. What a day, I ran 4 miles and it was snowing and I just wasn’t feeling it after a week of Spring Break and a few too many treats and a visit from our friend, Barb. I wanted my bed! And hot chocolate and a good food network show. Instead, I went running half heartedly, came back adn picked up Hailey who said she wants to start running with me. Then she said her ankle was hurting but I made her anyway. I gave her the whole shpeel about finishing what you start and reaching goals and blah blah. It turned out fine, but I am still bugged that I didn’t kick butt on my run. And besides that, I was still tired most of the day from the long run. Winter can end now! I never write five minute posts that turn into rants (I don’t think), but I am kind of tired! I love my kids and our time together but has anyone else noticed that attempting to exhaust kids will exhaust mom too?? So, surprise, I am not going to end with any great words of wisdom or commitments to do better. I am going to end on I made cookies with Brooke, went on a lunch date with Spencer, played with William and ran with Hailey. And we made a salt dough resurrection tomb for Easter. And I only had one dr pepper today. And I ran 4 miles. So, there you have it. I guess my day wasn’t such a failure after all. PS. I do have a husband that I talked to today too. Yes, he is my number 1.
