I am a working mom to 3 active children ages 14,11, & 8. We are blessed to be able to provide many opportunities for our kids to learn, grow and express themselves. However, this also makes for very busy parents. It has become a real challenge to make time for myself. Honestly it has started to feel impossible. I''m really trying to put into prospective the fact that I''m not the only one in this situation and that it is possible to fit in things that matter like your health and exercise. It''s not that you can''''s how can you? Its a challenge I''ve started with myself called 1 Good Thing. What 1 Good Thing have you done for yourself today?

    Thanks for your comment on my blog, M2M2! You're the greatest encouragement. I spent some time reviewing some of your blog posts (again!) today. Two years ago at this time you were almost exactly where I am now. It really helped to read about how you struggled because you have been so insanely successful and that gives me hope. :)

    YES!!!! I finally got 7 hours of sleep last night. First time in weeks. Between insomnia, the way too warm nights and the pups waking as soon as the sun rose, I have gone nearly a month with not enough sleep. Last night it actually cooled down very nicely and there were no night time interruptions (fireworks had also played a part in lack of sleep the last month). I woke up refreshed this morning and it feels so good.

    Little Miss Natalie, the lone foster pup, slept until 4 am. Then she started singing the song of her people at record levels. That girl can howl! So my day started at 4 am. She has a family meeting her tonight. Praying its the right fit for everyone so tomorrow I can sleep until my alarm goes off at 6:30 a.m. The litter was getting me up most mornings around 5:30 to 5:45 for the past month. I'm ready for a break.
