Yesterday reminded me why I made the7:02 AM
right decision to just have two kids and not a third. I don't know what is going on but I feel old, and yet I'm only about to turn 32.......make sense?
I had my friend Veronica's kids over the whole day, they're packing up their house to move next week and obviously it's much easier doing it with the kids not in the way. So I had two 7 year olds, two 3 year olds and a 1 year old who just learnt how to walk and is ALL over the house, really fast, my legs couldn't keep up LOL
I had totally forgotten what it's like to have a little one in the house, but you know what? Now I realize why I never had weight issues when my kids first started walking....I guess in a way I was just starting out myself (on the exercise path that is). Woke up this morning and I feel like I was run over by a truck, I hurt my left knee, my arms are killing me and even my stomach muscles are hurting. WHAT?!?!?! Then I get on the scale and it says 134 lbs.....YAY, you know I think I should have Matthew over more often then LOL
But with all the running around and the kids playing constantly non stop with their friends, at 7:30pm, I finally sat down in front of the computer to go on the Tour of Homes.....while I was sitting here doing that, I looked over to the couch and saw this,
Both kids were out pretty early, no fuss, no whining and no 1000 excuses to stay up....you know the ones right? All of a sudden they're thirsty, they're hungry, they're not tired, there's a special one-time cartoon on the tv, and the list goes on and on.
I have to tell you all that I just had such a blast going on the Tour of Homes, but some of your houses (well most of them actually, if I'm going to be honest) put mine to total shame. I just can't wait to buy our own house, living in base military is great but you can't do anything to the houses, hence the reason why all the walls are an egg shell white.....BARF!!!
I want paint and LOTS of it, all over the house, different colors, different themes, you name it....although I'm sure you've noticed that I'm into the country look, if my kitchen dolls etc didn't give it away, then I'm sure the shelves did. Oh and someone asked about the wooden shelving unit under the sink....that was built by my hubby, these houses come with NO storage at all in the bathrooms, so I asked hubby to build me something and he came up with that, I LOVE it :)
I have nothing planned for today, I did all my laundry yesterday and actually put away Nic's laundry too. I could go work on the back yard, but honestly I don't feel like it. *GASP* I said it, I'm telling all of blogdom that I, SAHM don't feel like cleaning or doing any unnecessary work today. Wow that felt good LOL
You know what I'm in need of though? Some good relaxing time with God. I've been so busy the past week and I haven't had time (forgive me Lord) to sit down for a few minutes and do my devotionals or even have a conversation with him....what's worse? Well the past 3 nights I've fallen asleep without even getting to pray. That's not like me, and it's frustrating and sad at the same time. So if anything, today I'm going to find time to be, just be with Him, talk about my week (though he knows I'm sure), talk about my frustrations, my worries, my happy times too....get some Fatherly Energy back I guess, you know the one, it fills you with smiles and courage and makes you ready to face anything that life may throw your way.
Well I'm off, I don't have a Surfing post today, didn't get on the internet this past week, so I really don't have any new or interesting sites to share. Will be back tomorrow and hopefully will have something more insightful or smart to blog about, my mind is just not there right now.....
