idk what to call this post. i’m deeply grateful, yes. i’m minutely stressing, alternating with cutting myself some slack. taking in the moments and not forgetting what this week off with my children is all about.
that’s the grown up part of me.
the baby-ass part still lives. sigh…i didn’t get to run yesterday. i had to keep at bay the crappy badditude that exuded from my pores. i really tried to stifle it. HATED scratching off a frigging rest day. it was not a rest day. it was a GREAT day, but a GREAT day WITHOUT running, crunches, steps, weights of any kind…unless you count me carrying my daughters Christmas dresses & assorted sundries through the mall. we DID get manicures. that was really nice.
i guess the bottom line is i just feel a little off this week because my beloved routine is out the door. i WILL bask in the goodness. so far today – one batch of muddy buddies happily being munched on by my daughters at this moment; two gloriously delicious gingerbread cakes waiting for their rightful owners – my former mother in law, who I ABSOLUTELY ADORE. that lady is a post by herself… 🙂 And my housekeeper, who keeps me sane and my house divine. Oh, and I did do 4 miles on tm. so, good things abound. just had to vent a little. wind is picking up, clouds are building. gotta get gas, deliver a cake, go to Rouse’s, figure out who’s coming & where they’re gonna sit.
right now – shower…peace, y’all.
