Raining here all day & wondering what to do 1st. I have the never ending laundry, dishes & next meals to plan for. Could go to the gym or take the kids to visit dad @ work (they love swimming & a train ride, w/this weather we could do both, lol) At this moment I'm just enjoying sparking & trying to just get motivated while the kids enjoy some netflix movies. How are you doing?

    It's a good day here. Sun is trying to poke out. I'm blogging and getting some housework done. Planning on hitting the gym this afternoon. First my workout, then let the kids swim a bit.

Have a great day!!

Weighed in this am & the scale is going in the right direction, woohoo. (it's been going the wrong way a lot this winter) Going to the gym yesterday must be helping. Anyways it's another busy fun filled day planned w/another playdate & bday party but best part is dh is working from home. He was on the phone already this am w/a lawyer @ 6 & has another call @noon(think he has another one before then but can't remember the time) & another between 1-3pm that I know of. So I know he'll be pretty busy too. Hopefully we can squeeze in some gym/swim time tonight after dinner & before my book club. How are you doing?

I love my life! I feel so blessed to have such a great family, friends & home. I'm really enjoying having the kids home from school & not feeling rushed to be anywhere's. My oldest had a nice playdate w/her friend this afternoon & now after having the kids pick up & as a reward I'm thinking of taking them to the Y for some swim time. I've done most my ST & a little cardio.

Found water in the basement last night & discovered it was from our 7y/o kitchen fridge hose. We just replaced our basement fridge when it recently died. Hope this one doesn't need to be. Not sure if I should call plumber, appliance repair or someone else. What do you suggest?
On a positive note we joined the Y last night & enjoyed swimming in the pool as a family.

    Ended up calling the plumber who was able to thankfully fix it. Could've saved some money doing it ourselves but he definitely saved us some time. emoticonto hear you haven't found a job yet. I'd let my membership go a few years ago b/c of the birth of my son & my dd hated the daycare. Hopefully now that she's in a different room & older she won't have that problem again. Maybe your Y has a position for you(wonder if they give free memberships if you work there) Could be a win win. Take care emoticon

    emoticon Sorry to hear about your fridge hose. I would check out what it would take to buy a new hose and look online on how to fix it myself. My dh and I do that sort of thing a lot and it saves us "a lot". There are a number of places you can get a hose if that is really the only problem.
I love that your family joined the Y! (Unfortunately it appears I am going to have to let my membership go since I am still not working. It is just making me want to cry.) You will find it has a lot more to offer than you can imagine if you just go. They offer a lot of encouragement with their exercise classes and work out space. My grandkids ask me to take them all the time. Everyone of them for a different reason. It is great! emoticon Keep smiling sunshine. emoticon

Enjoyed playing sports w/dh last night on the xbox made me feel better after eating & drinking way too many cals @ Acupulcos w/the family. I tried running for a few minutes but stopped & enjoyed watching tv while walking on the treadmill instead. I know running is much more efficient use of my time but I'm really enjoying not having to be or go anywhere's today since it's school vacation for the kids. We have no plans today & I love it! Mental rest day. Just doing the normal household chores dishes, laundry, bills etc... Pretty exciting stuff, huh. Might go out to the Y & join my son up for some classes w/his little buddy.

  Same here.. I was feeling guilty about not taking my kids anywhere but now I feel better that I'm not alone. We should try and get out one night this week!
