Hi Kimberly, I remember those days so long ago now. My oldest child cried when I dropped him off at school the first week but it may get easier. I think he was sad that I still had two more at home. I had those feels of sadness seeing him growing up and away from me. I was home with him for his first five years. I tried staying for a little while and talk to his teacher. He would leave me and play with the other children in kindergarten. Then I would quietly leave and he did not cry anymore. Linda from bean town

Hi Everyone, Thanks for your kind support, Kellie and Toni. I really appreciate it! I thought today would be better, but it was worse. She cried going into school this morning. She is such a good kid, sensitive to others, and such a good listener. She told me she loved school yesterday and today too. I think she is upset about leaving me in the morning and I really cried when I got back to the car today. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better. Kim
glad moonchild that you are getting a ramp for your mom, it will help alot. In Wisconsin we have 4 yr old kindergarten and my grandson also was a terror. Got to meet the principal on the first day. lol i agree that the new way of discipline doesn't work very well.
MOVING AND MAINTAINING. Yesterday is gone, let it go, tomorrow hasn't happened, don't long for it. Today is the present .........enjoy it
Today my right hip replacement is 3 years old and it's been amazing and has given me back so much of my life. I remember how hard it was to do simple things with bad hip osteo, even walking, shopping etc..
Today is a full exercise day, walking, yoga and stationary cycle..

Morning everyone! I am little anxious today about taking my big professional licensing test, but fortunately I have a supportive workplace that allowed me to take the day off without using any of my benefits so that I could sleep in and have a relaxing morning (the test isn't until 3:30). I've got lots of good food on deck ahead of the test, and I'm going to do a little midday yoga so I can calm my mind before heading over. I feel fairly good about passing, actually, but I also don't want to go in there overconfident. Here's hoping! Have a great day gang!

Well I'm actually awake in time to take advantage of this thread. Yesterday was not such a great day. I didn't have a meal plan so ate whatever I could find. I have a dr appointment in the middle of the day so not sure I will get in the cooking I would like to today. I'm awake now but I need to go back to sleep. I exercised late 9:00 pm and that was mistake. I didn't go to bed until 2:00 am and couldn't go to sleep. Restless legs started up. I hate that. I took some medication for it but of course it takes time to work. I don't believe I went to sleep til around 3-3:30 am and now it's 6:00 am. Need more sleep to function. I'll start cooking when I get up and see how far I get before I have to go. I'm getting a 6 inch suture that was left over from a surgery I had in December of 2010 !! They left all 3 in but I was able to get two of them out myself. I didn't worry about the third because I couldn't feel it. Now that I've lost 100 lbs I not only feel it but it hurts ! I've been trying to get it removed for over 6 months and I finally got the appointment
My grandson is in pre-kindergarten this year. Didn't know they had such a thing. It's for the kids that barely miss the cutoff birthday date. He is a little terror. Almost each day Mom or Dad gets the finger wave and a mini lecture about what he did that day. I feel sorry for my daughter but I've been telling her this new wave way of discipline is not working. He's better when he comes to Nana's home because he knows that Nana doesn't put up with such nonsense. He loves coming to Nana's cause Nana gives out cookies, plays games and has strict limits. I still think that kids secretly like firm boundaries. The last time they were here he raised a fit because he didn't want to go home and declared "I'm not going home and stared at his Mom". She returned with "Do you want to get in trouble or do you want a hug". It's no wonder he's so bad in school and he's only there for 3 hours.
Well that's it for today. Love you all and have a fantastic day.
Hi all! Oh Kimberly I rememeber those school days. My daughter did fine in kindergarten but 1st grade was a different story. One morning she had to be carried in by the principal, screaming for me all the way. I cried my eyes out at home. The principal called me to make sure I was okay and to let me know she was fine.
I had a great night at yoga last night. I love hitting that low plank! I was supposed to run tonight but it's supposed to be 91 at 7:00 tonight. Ugh! Need to come up with plan B. We shall see.
Good morning, team. Just read yesterday's thread. I so remember those first school days, Kimberly, even though they have been awhile for me. Those early years are so sweet too. I bet those little ones were glad to be with you last night and back in their nests after a big school adventure! Hope the woman who fell is okay, Celia. Disquieting to hear nothing. And Linda it is inspiring to see you take step after step to take care of your mom. Your days must be so full.
My sister's last day here and we are hitting the Marine Corps Museum (for her husband and mine to revel a bit) and then out to dinner tonight. They get on a plane in the morning and we get back to a modicum of routine. I am slipping in some work this afternoon. I've managed to be physically active and make healthy meals for the most part. Wishing everyone a good, satisfying day ahead.

Good morning! Once again I feel I could have slept longer. Nagging hamstring pain interrupted my sleep off and on all night. I can't seem to get it healed. Every time i think i have given it enough rest, some exercise I do makes it sore again.
Pilates class this morning will provide stretching opportunities. Headed to gym for 30 min plus Pilates. It was a hot walk at lunch yesterday. I'm looking forward to Friday's cooldown. Glad to see everyone up and at 'em!! Go team!
