First full week on the job, and it was crazy. Doesn't help that I've got a sinus thing going on as well, had three sick kids home for 2+ days this week, and in general am not used to that much "activity" going on around me.
Get to work, do odd jobs, 11am go into nursery and take over during lunch breaks for those workers till 1pm, then do more odd jobs helping other workers with whatever needs doing (i.e. nap time, bathroom patrol, lunch monitor), get a short break myself, then back prepping snack time for everyone, and waiting on my school aged kids to start pouring in. Finally get my kids snacks, take then down to their play room, and try to maintain some sort of "order" while they play, color, beat each other senseless and other childhood pastimes....LOL
After I get off work, I head home to hear...."Mom.....what's for dinner?" UUUGH have NOT felt like cooking all week, but managed to make a couple of home-cooked meals despite it all, the other days I told my mostly self-sufficient kids to "make your own" while I go and collapse on the couch.
My step monitor on my phone says I'm doing between 4000-7000 steps during these days, so it's not all bad. And I get free lunches at the daycare if I so choose (I know whose cooking it and it's mostly pretty good...lol)
But......I need a massage, and I think my carpal tunnel in my right wrist is flaring up again. And monday (being a holiday of sorts) I get my kids ALL day long....WHEEEEE
Have yourselves a good week, and pray I'm still alive come friday....lol

Can I just say how much I don't like going to doctors offices? Besides them poking and prodding at you, they always tell me the same thing..."if you lost weight....""you know the health risks....". Yes, yes, yes....I KNOW all that. It's harder than it looks. At least I don't smoke (like half of them do), I don't indulge in alcohol (very rarely), and I try really hard not to get shot at.....LOL
Those magic little pills to help people out just come with way to many side effects for my liking. I'd rather be fat than have heart problems, or kidney issues, or die....thanks but no thanks.
I'll do it my way, even if that means it takes years to do. I'm working on eating healthier, drinking more water, etc. My downfalls are I'm not particularly fond of getting sweaty, unless it's for fun, and too many forms of exercise I don't consider "fun"...lol I do what I can when I can, the summer is much better for that kinda thing than the winter, so right now I'm struggling more than normal.
Today was probably my first real breakfast in months, that wasn't non-existant or loaded with fat & carbs (sonic's ultimate meat & cheese breakfast burritos are my downfall). I'm even back on my blood pressure meds every day this week.
I think running an after school program will be good for me, keep me on my toes - literally speaking, and keep me moving more while having fun with the kiddos. I go in today after my doctor appt (physical for working there) and do more paperwork, and maybe see if they want me to hang out for awhile.
Have a great rest of the week everyone.

Well....I've decided to re-start on this site....again....
Been out of work since late august, had a little unemployment, but the gov cut that off at the end of Dec. I did have some jewelry sales in Dec, that helped out a little. I did get hired just after the 1st of the year at our churchs daycare, and will be the after school director. so YAY I have a job.
Kids are out of school AGAIN today due to extreme cold weather. Was supposed to be the first day back but oh well.
Here's to a great new year.

Got the kids to church....sunday school class has 4 dozen donuts (literally), having not made enough time for breakfast....I ate two (strike one). Also have been fighting a migraine on and off all week....today was becoming on (strike two).
Skipped church service to avoid full onslaught of migraine (praise band is loud...lol) came home and took pills....ate leftover fried chicken and tried to rest but ended up cleaning house instead.
Had a 50's themed sock-hop at church tonight for our worship pastor's 50th birthday celebration. Ate pulled pork sandwich AND chili dog AND rootbeer float and and and....I was so full (strike three)......I'm out!
Heading to bed about now (9:40ish) cause I have to be at work by 4:30 tomorrow morning. Hoping for a migraine free day, but not counting on it. Think I'm possibly a bit on the dehydrated side if I really think about it. Will try harder this week to drink more water.
