Well Happy Monday Y'all! Its going to be a good day! My daughter has scouts tonight, but I don't have to go. I just have to drop and pickup. whew! Yaaa!
I am going to do 3 miles today and Abs. I have to get back to tracking my food. I did that 7 miles on Friday and then I self destructed. I ate lots and lots and lots of good for me things, but too many according to my scale. Today begins a new week, right now begins a a new moment.
So a few things left on that very long to do list. Sewing pile really took a beating on Saturday after work but I lost yesterday to grocery shopping. Oh well, it is done now and I have good food in the house (-: I got the old zipper out of my husbands jacket and the new one is pinned in, now I just have to do it. It will happen today.
After that I just have to fill out the HRA paperwork to get reimbursed for some health care things and tada! I think I can take care of all of that today after I finish my work.
A friend encouraged me to get more organized and I have a large wall in my office that I've been wanting to do a big calendar on for a long time, so this next week, I'm going to hang up some poster boards covered with clear contact paper to make them very light dry erase boards and I'm going to make some visual lists on them for me and the kids. I also purchased the 2013 desk calendar so it is big to hang up there too!
one of my friends writes her blessings at the bottom of her blogs and I really like that, especially since it is thankfulness week.
A loving husband
2 great kids
God for giving me blessings
Spark people for helping me stay on track
Oh I'm sure I have more blessings, that's just a start.

Well I am SUPER glad it is Friday! We don't get too many down days.. and today is 1!!!!! My daughter is under the weather and she has been most of the week, but today I let her stay home. We are not going anywhere today after school. Tomorrow my son has a cub scout thing and friends are coming over, but I don't have to go anywhere! Sunday Church! for the first time in 2 weeks. We had off last week for the 5k and the week before my husband and I were helping to clean up a hall after a family wedding.. so boy oh boy do I need to reconnect with my Lord!
I'm just excited I may get a few things off this long to do list this weekend. I'm taking a short break from work to write this, but after work I'm getting right on the treadmill and after that.. who knows?! the whole house is my oyster!

I know that a thankful heart is a happy heart and I should practice that a little more often. Thank you for sharing that you get overwhelmed too.. and thank you for any prayers that were said on my behalf. About midway through the day I was met with a blessing!!! woo who! God took a few things off my plate, things that weren't even on this short list I wrote for my blog. HUGE weight lifted! Praise the Lord.
I got home about 30 minutes later than I had planned last night from visiting Grandpa. He was in good spirits. He can't wait to get his prosthetic leg so that he doesn't need people to help him do every little thing. He was pretty excited about it. He also gets to come home Friday for a day. He is excited about that too. Not sure how that works, but I heard he's getting Thanksgiving weekend too. I wonder if that is to help prepare the household? duno.
Anyway, on the drive home I thought I need to finish up a few things tonight. I know I've been working on getting all of my sleep in, but at the same time, I could knock a few things off my plate. I did not get my 3 miles in ...last night... but this morning!!! very exciting!!!! I did it!!! I got on my treadmill and I managed to get in some mileage. Not quite 3 before I had to get up the children, but I'm excited!
I'm feeling very, very blessed this morning and a lot more focused.
