Trying to get back on track...finding that I remember now why it was so hard in the beginning... It's because when you start these things its hard to get the momentum going.. Soooo,...today our water was shut off! That was not good timing either. (For several reasons: 1) We have barely enough to pay the bill! Let alone a reconnection fee!!! 2) Tonight is meeting night and we all needed baths!)
So... at the risk of sounding (pardon my terminology..) ghetto- I shall tell you all what we did- what I took the initiative to do-... See...we have a lovely pool surrounded by a nice privacy fence ...and well....see...since it DOES have a privacy fence...- LOL-I'm sure ppl already know where this story is headed but Ill say it anyways- I got myself and the girls to go for a swim. After we was done swimming, we one at a time, took buckets of water behind the pool (with our swim suites still on!) and lathered up, shampooed, conditioned, shaved, the whole 9 yards-! and rinsed with buckets of clean pool water. After ward we sat on our towels in the sun to dry. I actually really do feel really clean! I even smell really clean, not at all like chlorine. Its funny what you will do to get clean when you have to!
Tomorrow...somehow...we will get the water turned back on. But to say the least, today was interesting. It got me to thinking on how lazy I am. How much I don't have a clue that I'm pampered! I was talking to the girls about how they had to do things back in the old days and it got me to realize that I'm so spoiled as a parent and as a mother! I mean I'm so thankful for many of our technical advances, yet at the same time I would like to keep myself in check more on how much I rely on them and how literally lazy I have allowed myself to become.
At least before I went out for a swim I got a 20 min cardio workout in. It totally reminded me how much I love working out! I'm really ready to do this. Except once I get back on track I do not plan on ever letting myself fall so far away from being on track again!
Going to go get ready for the meeting now. There's nothing I can think of that could make me feel better than to be around my spiritual family in times of hardships.
