Greetings friends! I have been enjoying my week off so far, well I think. Yesterday I had lunch with my parents and got a pedicure. I am not rocking some candy cane toes (red with white stripes…SOOO cute!). J I got home early to make a real meal (HAHA!) with plenty of time to do stuff around the house. Shut the front door, it feels like summer!
Today I went and had lunch with my three kiddos. I teach in a different district so they are still in school this week (insert sad face, now insert sarcasm, lol). It was pretty cool since I never get to do that. Now, the 2 hrs I spent in a middle school lunch room, which later led to a major headache, was an experience. Hats off to middle school teachers! I couldn’t do it. I am not a fan of big kids, their hormones and attitudes, lol. I also will not teach in a grade where students are taller than me, haha. Being 5’2”, I am limited. I will stick with the small fries!
Then, I met my personal trainer for our second session. I had lap band this summer so as I am losing weight, I wanted to start working out and toning. Well…let me just tell you that it has only been a few hours and I am already in need of a wheel chair. Now my trainer doesn’t go all scary drill sergeant on me. Um hello, I would cry and run out. No bullies, right?! Any who, today he said “we were going to step it up and increase the level of difficulty.” Boy he wasn’t lying! I want to be pushed, just not off a cliff. I have a goal for the end of this year and I know he will help me get there but on the inside I am saying, dear Lord Baby Jesus make it stop! My abs were going into convulsions, seriously! The inside of my stomach was shaking as to say” Hey lady! You haven’t used these muscles since birth!” Well, I survived the hour session without passing out, punching the trainer, or having to use my inhaler. AND THEN, I went to the grocery store…as if I hadn’t put my blood pressure through enough. A few hours later, the bird is thawing in the fridge, I am icing down the muscles I can get to, the kids have given me the mom of the year award for bring the beloved Sonic to school today and all is right in the world. Now, tomorrow…that’s another story!
So, today I was THANKFUL that I was able to just be a mom for a moment. What are you thankful for today??
