A day in the life of......Me?

Thursday, February 16, 2012

I have been pretty busy this week. I thought I would write about it. Why? Because I want to! LOL I don't know. I have been trying my best to keep myself busy through out the week so that I don't have much time to sit on my butt (like I am now apparently) and think.

First of all...an update on my anxiety. I have been doing OK in that area. I actually forgot to take my medication for a few days and did just fine without them. I'm not even sure I need them anymore as I tried taking one just yesterday and got very nauseous! So we shall see! :) I have finally found some counselors at the church I go to. It really works out because it's free! My therapist helped me to a certain point but I had to stop going because that road ended. Onto a new one!

I have started going back to church and have noticed a lot of different things happening in my life! Good things of course! :-) I go to church every Saturday! I have made it a priority! I have actually just started taking classes for 8 weeks. Every Monday night for about 2 hours and dinner provided for us and childcare as well!!! And dinner for my kids too! I LOVE IT!

Ok So onto my week so far!!!!

Mondays I usually go to Zumba in the morning with my friend (she's my zumba instructor!). After that I head home and make lunch for my kiddos. Take them to school. Usually do some sort of shopping or errands while they are at school but this Monday I had a personal training session for one hour with my trainer. After that went shopping really quick for school Vday snacks then picked up my son from school and daughter too! Came home and did a few things around the house. Then soon after took off to church class. Came home, gave kids a bath and got their stuff ready for the next day. Valentine's Day! My daughter wore a CUTE red Valentines Day dress (matched her American Girl doll dress!!!!!), cute tights with hearts on them and cute red shoes!!! She looked ADORABLE!!!! I LOVE HER!!! My son wore a red shirt and new blue jeans! :-)

Tuesday I actually slept in!!! (til 9a.m! LOL...remember the days when "sleeping in" meant until NOON? LOL!!). Got up, showered, got dressed, makeup on. Went to store to buy lollipops for kids Vday cards. After breakfast we got busy signing them and putting them together. Got snacks for school ready. Quick lunch (more like a snack) then off to school they went!!! I came home to chill for about an hour (before I had to take off again to my daughters class to take pics! I'm one of the mom photographers there!). I woke up dizzy Tuesday morning for some strange reason. I Don't know why!!!! I was dizzy and later on I felt so nauseous!! Maybe the meds. I don't know. Weird. So one hour went by then came 2pm and I went and helped out daughters class a bit. Took pictures of all the kiddos eating their snacks, making their cute Vday craft. Then 3pm came and took off to pick up son from school. Came back, picked up daughter from school, took kids to store to buy ingredients, and actually chilled at home this evening because I wasn't feeling good that morning. Plus I had to make oatmeal cookies for my friends Zumba party Wednesday :) I made Cranberry Almond Oatmeal cookies (the ones that have NO butter in them!!!) and made them into heart shapes! (They were a HIT!!!!! Went SO FAST!!!!) Oh yes! Both nights I stayed up late finishing my homemade camera bag!!! I really needed one and made one!!!! Out of an igloo cooler (that looks like a purse/bag!!), material, foam padding, needle and thread, iron on (to cover up logo), and that's pretty much it!

SO today Wednesday woke up, showered, got dressed, etc. yadda yadda! Got kids dressed. Daughter in her red Vday dress again since we WERE going to a Vday Zumba Party!! :) Sent son to school. Daughter and I went off to Zumba Party with my friend. Stayed for a little over an hour. It was fun!!! I took pictures!!!! About 150!! Joined in the last number to dance all while holding a residents hand! By the way this was over at a Retirement Home! Zumba at a retirement home! Little ladies were so cute! Anyway, after that I took daughter to String Beads to make a necklace!!! I LOVE that store!!! I ordered some Eiffel Towers to make a necklace for myself later on! Then after went to pick up son from school. Got gas. Came home, made a quick dinner for all of us. Oh yes this morning I also put chicken in the crockpot for Salsa Chicken! OMG SO GOOD! YUM!!!! Gonna LOVE the leftovers tomorrow with a salad! :-D Then got ready for spin class! Drove over there, had my class, chatted with my friend (zumba instructor, she also teaches spin!!!). Bought kids a snack there :-P Drove home singing some songs in the car! My daughter loves (and knows the words!) to a certain song played at Church! She actually remembered it FROM CHURCH! Which surprised me! :) Amazing! She actually asked me to play it again! Anyway...came home, gave kiddos a snack, got them ready for bed but first son had to use the potty. Still in potty training mode here so it takes him awhile to "get it all out" LOL! That took like 30 minutes! But it was done! PUt son to bed! Read 4 (small) books to Daughter. Put HER to bed! Came down to computer to edit and email just a few pictures to my friend. Wrote THIS here blog. And now it's time to GET OFF and GO TO BED!!!!!! But gotta go put my food away first :)

Ok well There you have it! 3 days in the life of ME!!!!!! Tomorrow morning I get to have breakfast with my kids, then go to the gym for my Personal Training session! Then come home, make lunch, get kids ready for school, come home after that and try to clean up the place a bit! I also have to scan an album full of pics for my friend, pay some bills, go to bank, edit and burn pics to CD for friend. Fold laundry! Get dinner for my kids later on after school. Oh yes Daughter has drawing class on Thursdays so she'll get a snack after school and OFF we go to the gym again for spin class. A different gym, still 24hr fitness though. TO spin with my friend/instructor (again! yes I do love her!) :-) I see my friends there as well so that's a bonus!! Come home, give kids a bath, dinner for daughter first, snack for son. Put them to bed. Sleep. Zzzz.....Have to clean carpet (some stained areas) sometime soon!!!

Friday I get to "sleep in" sort of. Clean in the a.m. Appointment with counselor at 2:30 for one hour. Right after that I go to work for a few hours!! After work going to a church movie night thing with my friend! Saturday morning i work (i think, i usually do). Come home, lunch, chill, go to church that evening at 6 or 4! Whatever I feel like that day :) Sunday my normal Zumba class and Spin class! With my friends! Yeah!

A week in the life of me....sort of at least. :-) Lots of stuff! I need to plan my meals better I know that for sure! I have very little time to cook when I keep myself busy like this! Ahh!!

Well gotta go!
