It's Wednesday already?!?

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

For some reason I keep thinking it's Tuesday, I don't know what's up with that, the week is slipping away from me, and spring break is almost over!

Financial stresses are weighing heavy on my family right now, our lease is up and we need to find a new place to live by June, and there are no places for rent in our town! It's kind of a small community, and I'm not willing to relocate my kids' school. I keep taking deep breaths, I know we'll figure it out, I just like to be a little more prepared, and I've been looking for a few months now, anything we were interested in was snatched up right away!

Work has been a little crazy, I started a new position in January, so I've been in training for the past 3 months. I'm hoping to get that all wrapped up this week, and have it finalized. I have so much else going on at work that it's been difficult to focus.

Feeling pretty good about my journey, though. I put some oomph back into it, have been going to bed about a half hour earlier, and made the rule that the kids MUST play in their rooms for at least a half hour every day so I can get my exercise, which so far has been the 6 YO banging on and kicking the door while the baby cries for 30 minutes. Oh well, they are going to have to get used to it, it's the only way I can get a workout in at this point. Also, this tactic gives me the freedom to exercise when I want to, instead of waiting until they go to sleep, which is technically when I should go to sleep, too, since I have to be up by 4:20am. Gosh, I remember when I used to think anything before 6 am was waaaaayy too early, and here I get up at 4:20! The last 2 nights I've gotten 7 hours of sleep! That's a huge deal for me!

    Good for you sticking to your guns and being the parent!! Life is full of things we do not want, always changes. Kids must learn them and adapt. You are doing right by taking care of your needs to be healthy,,you are no good for anybody until you get that right!!

    Not sure about your housing things, but would anybody at your workplace know of anything? Maybe a son or daughter of theirs has a place they are leaving or renting? It never hurts to ask...

    How about church? If you go to a church, maybe somebody there knows of something.. use your resources wisely!!

    Good luck in it all!!
