Fridays...oh how I LOVE Friday!

This has been a weird week and I'm just looking forward to the weekend, and hoping for a little rest.
My birthday was great! It was a nice day with family and friends, and just getting a little spoiled. I'm also happy to report that I exercised all 5 days this week! 3 morning workouts, and 2 walks at the soccer field. Last night, I finally had time to do 2 miles!
On the flip side, we've had some struggles that are just adding stress to the week. I've committed myself to trying to wake up earlier in order to leave the house earlier in the mornings. Lately, I've been getting to work later and later because traffic is so atrocious. Of course, getting up earlier means going to bed earlier. Easy, right? WRONG! Matthew, my 19 month old, has decided that sleep is just not his thing right now. For the past 2 weeks, he has absolutely refused to go to bed. This is the child that I used to say..."Ok, time for bed!" and he'd throw his toys down and head for the stairs. I'd have him in bed in 10 minutes flat. Now it's like a 2 or more hour process involving crying (not always him), holding, reading, tantrums, etc.
So, I'm looking forward to the weekend. Hopefully, we can find a solution for Matthew that will get us past this. On a good night, I was 10 minutes EARLY to work today. (totally unheard of!)
Come on Weekend!!
