Okay, so this week so far has felt stressful. I’ve had a few days (this morning included) where I have wondered why I should bother getting out of bed. This morning I gave in and enjoyed some extra time in bed before getting my butt up and in gear. Tomorrow I will plan on getting up early to work out, but today is my day to be lazy.
Day 10 (March 25)
I logged onto my work computer early this morning (after my lounge time in bed) and got quite a bit of work done before the kids woke up. Also drank a lot of coffee. After they woke up, we had a nice breakfast together and then Rose did some coloring while Liam played quietly as I worked. Every day, I am so thankful that my kids are MOSTLY well-behaved.
Of course, they did have their moments. Like when Liam shut Rose’s fingers in a toy box and made her cry, and then laughed about it.
This afternoon, I piled the kids into the stroller to try for a run. Rose decided she wanted to walk and run as well, so it turned into a fun walk/run/follow the leader game which took an hour to go 4 miles. It was so beautiful out and they loved being able to get out and walk. When we got home, we played outside for a bit, though that ended with Rose locking me and Liam out of the house because she said I hurt her feelings and made her cry. We had a talk about why she shouldn’t lock us out of the house, so hopefully next time we can avoid that part!
Now it’s time to shut my computer off, finish my beer, and have a few minutes of relaxing before we do it all over again tomorrow.
