For some reason I keep thinking it's Tuesday, I don't know what's up with that, the week is slipping away from me, and spring break is almost over!
Financial stresses are weighing heavy on my family right now, our lease is up and we need to find a new place to live by June, and there are no places for rent in our town! It's kind of a small community, and I'm not willing to relocate my kids' school. I keep taking deep breaths, I know we'll figure it out, I just like to be a little more prepared, and I've been looking for a few months now, anything we were interested in was snatched up right away!
Work has been a little crazy, I started a new position in January, so I've been in training for the past 3 months. I'm hoping to get that all wrapped up this week, and have it finalized. I have so much else going on at work that it's been difficult to focus.
Feeling pretty good about my journey, though. I put some oomph back into it, have been going to bed about a half hour earlier, and made the rule that the kids MUST play in their rooms for at least a half hour every day so I can get my exercise, which so far has been the 6 YO banging on and kicking the door while the baby cries for 30 minutes. Oh well, they are going to have to get used to it, it's the only way I can get a workout in at this point. Also, this tactic gives me the freedom to exercise when I want to, instead of waiting until they go to sleep, which is technically when I should go to sleep, too, since I have to be up by 4:20am. Gosh, I remember when I used to think anything before 6 am was waaaaayy too early, and here I get up at 4:20! The last 2 nights I've gotten 7 hours of sleep! That's a huge deal for me!
