Sad day for me - I realized my 'kids' are growing up.

Saturday, September 03, 2011

I am blessed to have a wonderful daughter. Through her I have had the honor of connecting with other kids, giving them support (and sometimes mothering) they needed at different times of their life. I hope they all know that each one is special to me and they have probably given me more than I could ever give any of them.

I realized today (as one of these kids that has been staying with us since last spring moved out today to live with her sister) there will probably not be many more of these opportunities since Nikki will be graduating this year. Not only will she be moving on, but also all of the friends she has brought into my life.

Although Nikki is and always will be number 1 in my heart, I consider each of everyone of these friends my kids too. I love them all.

    Yes, times are changing but if you have a heart to serve and help, you will find opportunities to touch others. God gives us gifts to use for His will to be done. He shows His love through us and the people that need it will cross our paths, just as others help us when we need it.

Strange day - double workout; freak storm; and ice cream!!!!

Friday, September 02, 2011

Do, after working late last night, planned to go in slightly later this morning. However, last night I could NOT fall asleep. I hate that!!!

So, after finally falling asleep at 1 in the morning, I gave myself an extra half hour to sleep in. Then, got up and did Supreme 90 Cardio Challenge and then Core Dynamics.

It started raining as I was finishing up my workout and my daughter asked if I could drive her to school so wouldn't have to walk in the rain. As I was on my last stretch, the power went out - what timing!!!!!

So, by this time we had a full blown storm with 60 mph + winds. We stood inside and just watched for awhile. I wasn't worried about her being late for school, because I imagined she wasn't going to be the only one.

After watching the weather for a few minutes (the power came right back on), I realized I should check in with work since I am in charge of technology there. I called and it rang and rang and rang - not a good sign.

So off I went to clean up enough and put some more clothes on (I wasn't going to work in my still sweaty workout clothes) so I could go get things back on and running. Sure enough, as I'm changing work calls me to tell me they are having problems.

So, I drop my daughter off at school and head into work. Luckily, it was just some equipment that needed to be reset, not a big deal, I've had to deal with much more difficult days.

Came home and really cleaned up and ended in to work for real. I knew I only would be there for a couple of hours and just planned on cleaning up some of the little to-do's. Accomplished that and went over to the library to help out there.

We managed to figure out the best way to add new materials to the new system and maintain tracking of what we had added, so that was positive.

Came home and decided to treat myself and have some ice cream BEFORE dinner!!!! Then had whole wheat pasta for dinner. YUM!!!!!!

Now I am just going to chill out for the rest of the night. Another double workout in the morning. I am going to push myself this weekend, because I realized I have a week's worth of Supreme 90 left and my birthday is Wed and I've decide I want to finish this round of S90 before my birthday!

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!!!!!


Why did I become an Accountant???? 12 hour day when it was beautiful outside!!!

1st day of school for Wisconsin. Last 1st day of school for my daughter - it's her senior year! Alarms were going off all over our house this morning.

Got up and did S90 Total Body - only two more times for this workout!

Had to be at work early to run month end reports. This afternoon I worked on my financial reports. Unfortunately they took much longer than they should have so I didn't leave work until 7:30 this evening. Missed almost the whole 90 degree day. Hopefully it will stay warm for this weekend so I can enjoy it. Taking it easy at work tomorrow - only a half day anyway.

Another great dinner and a great walk!

Did S90 Cardio Challenge this morning.

Tonight my daughter and I went out to dinner with Cocoa-Jumbo and her daughter. We had a great dinner - lots of veggies!!! Then after dinner we went for a walk.

It was so nice to catch up with them. Our girls are on the school gymnastics team together, but they don't go to the same school (we live in different towns, but our schools coop for sports), so outside of season we don't see each other too much.

Dinner with my daughter; losing our long term guest

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Another great day!

Early morning meeting so couldn't work out before hand, but came home and did S90 Core and walked on the treadmill.

Met with my daughter's friend who has been staying with us (she was supposed to out to dinner with us but ended up having to work). Her sister has moved up from Madison and has finally found a place to stay, so she'll be moving in with her sister. I am happy for her, but the house is going to seem so quiet.

Then, got ready for dinner with my daughter. I had to make an appointment with her two days ago for this dinner. emoticon

It was our 'pre school starting reminder of the rules' family meeting. We had a great time and she talked alot so my goals were met.

Tomorrow night we're going out to dinner again. This time with Cocoa-Jumbo and her daughter whom we haven't seen all summer. So looking forward to it!!
