Ugh, these last few
days weeks I have been un.mo.ti.vate.ded. I don’t know if its the end of the school year or if it is something in the air or a hormonal or emotional thing, but, I have been un motivated over the last 2 weeks. The baby came home sick from daycare on Friday and dealing with a sick baby, chores (now that my mom is gone) and Church and I think I got burnt out. Long days at work, chores and kids, it wears a mom down.
Not a good way to start a 90day fitness-challenge. *sigh* Why can’t challenges include wine?
I look at the kids and make sure they are playing well together, then I powered up my iPhone and downloaded a book and read. There are too many free books ready to download and I sat. The kids watched a movie (Raise of the Guardians)Then I sat some more. We even had a finger food dinner, Chicken and Joes from the deli at QFC (Joes are fried potatoes for the uninitiated) – they did have salad for a veggie, so Im not a totally bad mom. But, the rest was finger-food. In fact they noticed and called it a finger food night. That was cool.
But it was indicative of a mom who didn’t want dishes, didn’t want clean up and didn’t want anything to do with work. So, I stacked dishes on the counter, sat and read a trashy romance novel while the kids watched TV. Yeah, this lasted about a day and half.
Then , I got a call from my parents, who sent me plane tickets to visit, so I could drop my kids off for the summer. My kids love visiting on the farm, but WHAT am I going to do without them for almost 2 months? Don’t get me wrong, we went. Then I ran away giggling manically and promptly scheduled 2 girls weekends with some friends. I’m going to miss my kids, but for a little while, this girl needs a break!
