dusting off

Thursday, December 13, 2012


I just wrote a blog and the darn thing got lost!

I will try to remember my thoughts.

Yesterday I didn't get to walk. I didn't dance around the room. I didn't do any yoga. It seemed that every time that could have worked I found I needed to be in 10 minutes or someone needing me for some reason or other.

My family was doing P90X at 10 pm... all grumpy at each other. Not me. I don't care that much! I have other things to worry about. Like the fact that my husband called today to tell me he maxed out our line of credit. He needed to fix the car and pay for some crazy class required by work.


We will never get out of debt. It's killing me.

My husband has a nice paying job. He works extra. We never see him. I take on extra kids, voice lessons, sets, etc. all in an effort to pay down the debt and to keep the house and to buy the things the kids need and demand. But food and gas and emergencies are killing all progress we make.

I'm to tired to care about my health. We really don't have the money to spend on it.

I just don't care about health stuff when all these cares are over whelming my life.

At least I ate well. I made good choices.

I worked on a set.

I did some scripture study.

I got some laundry done.

I cleaned the kitchen... even if it didn't look like it by the time I went to bed.

But today I start again.

    Wendy, somehow you need to figure out how not to make it about money. I know the feeling. My husband sells cars. We have a big family and I have not figured out how to get actual work. So you are a step ahead of me there.

    You are important. You are the mother who provides the heart and spirit of the home. Your health matters. Trust me I know I have been very sick. I still have to work on my wellness.

    I don't know how your house is. Can you be on a treadmill listening to great music while your family grumps their way to better bodies? Maybe yoga in another room. I hope you find some other way to do it and y our family finds a happy way to make it work.

    I pray you will find the strength to care enough to make the most of your health within the limitations you have set.
