Not a great day, but not horrible either!

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Started off talking about the court papers for more child support money over breakfast. Headed off to work.

Power yoga/Pilate's
Hi/Lo aerobics
Seen a Client
Power yoga/Pilate's
Skipped over the dance lesson and rescheduled it for tomorrow.

I had to pick up my youngest son from his dad's house. His dad lost his job today. He has trouble controlling his drinking, one might say.

So, I feeling a little overwhelmed right now. I asked my hubby what he thought about what is worse.

1. Kids that don't see their parents since they were very small and now they are men.
2. Kids that have parents that have substance abuse issues.
3. Kids that have parents that spoil them rotten and expect others to pay for outrageous items.
4 Kids that have parents that really don't want them, but put it on the internet making comments about what great parents they are to their boy/girl friend's children.

Then I thought, maybe it's Kent and I that are squirrelly! I really have a hard time understanding what a parent's role really are anymore. I think I am suppose to raise my kids to become productive adults that have morals and ethics. I think I am suppose to teach them about responsibility and what good clean fun is. I'm not the most liberal mom on the block by any means, but I'm not a prud either. I'm just a little overwhelmed tonight. I really feel drained emotionally.

On a positve note, I did take my Intense Training Nighttime Recovery Complex ( ITRX-pm) last night and I made it through class tonight. I am a little sore in my lats and somewhat on my ribcage area, but not horrible. My client from Thursday evening....different story!! Members that took my chaos class yesterday...OMG...they were feeling it! They always come back for more. I love to feel soreness. My body is telling me I have been working hard.

I seen another client/friend tonight to give her a birthday gift. She had surgery on her foot, so she is kind of laid up for a while. I really enjoyed hanging out with her for a while. It was a nice change.

I'm headed to the shower and then to bed. I can't believe how tired I am right now. I will chat with everyone tomorrow.

Positives:
1. I could tell I worked really hard yesterday.
2. Enjoyed hanging out with my Fabian and Cass this afternoon.
3. I actually got to see my hubby for more then 2 hours today!
4. Had a nice time with my friend and Cass this evening.

Strong Mind, Strong Body!!

    I completely agree about what our responsibilities are to our children. If only everyone felt that way!

    I find that the colder weather dampens my emotins a bit-you have a great way of thinking positive at the end of the day- maybe try starting the day wit it too?- Oh and limit the time allowed dwelling on problems/ make them challenges and focus on the good/great stuff and minumize the trials- Joined THE SECRET team today- I had forgotten a lot of what i learned from that- positivity breeds more of the same- as does the opposite- sleep well- and take care-Di

    Oh I am doing better on the treadmill - 3.0 is not as hard as I thought it would be- just gotto get my rolerance and time better now!- nite nite

    Like you, I think it's a parent's role to guide them into a productive adult-hood. We can only do what we can do, and wishing that they do what we'd want them to do is useless unless THEY want those same goals as well. And, they have to find out things for themselves, too. Soemtimes it takes them a bit longer than we'd like, but we do what we can when they're smaller, building those morals that (I believe) are so important in every day life.
    VERY deep thoughts on tonights blog!
