WOW...Time Is Flying!

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I can't believe we are nearing the end of October! I miss SP so much, but now I am finding I barely have time to do anything. Gotto love it when people think teachers work until 3 pm and that is it. HA! emoticon If I only worked the hours that school is actually in session I would never have a lesson plan and nothing would ever get graded.

I hate saying I don't have enough time, but it is true (at least right now in my life.) Our daugher is waking up sometimes as early as 4 am! I really think she misses time with Mommy & Daddy and wakes up just for those quiet moments in the early morning cuddling. My school dismisses the students at 3:10 pm. Technically, I am supposed to stay until 3:30 pm, but there are time I leave asap to pick up Bella from my mom's house. That is 45-50 minutes in the car. Bella and I are usually home by 5 pm and then I have to feed her and start thinking of what to make for dinner for me and hubby.

So, the day wraps up at about 7 pm. There is no way I could exercise that late and go to bed...I'd be too pumped up to sleep. ANNNDDD, in all honesty I am too pooped! At that point I write lesson plans or grade papers, go through my e-mail, bills, etc... and I am off to sleepy land emoticon

The good news is that I have still managed to lose a little more weight! I honestly have no idea how and I am shocked. I was actually dreading the scale. I was pleasantly surprised when I was down another 1.5 lbs. The bad news is this is not as fast as I wanted things to move and I miss my workout routine emoticon

Seriously, we moms have sooooo much on our plates. I just have to remember that I can have it all; I just may not be able to have it all at once.

    That's great about the weight loss! Life is so busy with kids and it is hard to try and get everything done in a day!
Glad to hear from you!

    emoticon on the weight loss!

Enjoy that little one while you can. One thing I used to do when my kids were little is use them for my weights. There are exercises you can do as a game with them that will both give you time with her having fun and work those muscles at the same time. Yep. Mom's are busy, so they have to get creative to get the exercise they need to maintain health and strength for many more years with their children...and their children's children. Keep up the good work! emoticon

    I really like your last statement "I just have to remember that I can have it all; I just may not be able to have it all at once." That is such a hard concept for many of us to get. We think we DESERVE it all at once and when it doesn't happen, we give up.

Keep up the hard work. It will come, in His time. Take it from a mom of teenagers: little ones become big ones in the blink of an eye. Enjoy little Bella while you can! No matter what anyone says, you cannot make up any time you have missed.
