Can I be hodge-podgy for a today? I've got random on the brain and the desire to write. Which doesn't exactly make for a graceful combination--but to that I say, so be it. And, roll with it. So rolling we go.
There are so many mini problems right not at my house. Do you know what I mean by that? Things that are not Real Problems--but nuisances. Yea, that. Our brand new dishwasher is giving me the flashing sign for The Drain Is Clogged. And--well, that sucks. The entire thing is full to the brim. There's water in the bottom of it that won't drain, obviously--and I have a sink full of dirty dishes. A real problem? No. Annoying to my everyday life. Slightly.
Something random leaked in my fridge door and I cannot find the culprit. Not to mention, there is nothing worse or more disgusting on my list of Disgust than sniffing out issues. Gross. Okay, one more worse thing....cleaning out dirty tupperware containers. THAT is equally as nasty.
Bees. The weather gets warm, and BAM. My house becomes The Place For Bees to Make Hives. And we're talking the mean, aggressive, yellow-jacket type bees that sting. And don't you dare tell me to try to get rid of them naturally. They are every-where. I almost can't get into my house without dodging a million, getting shaky-leg-syndrome (from fear), and hyperventilating about my kid's lives and that they'll be traumatized with bee stings. I'm not exaggerating, they are bad. I am having the pest dude come spray today for the second time in two weeks. I'm not messing around. They won't ruin my summer, I'm determined.
Switching gears. Don't worry, I'm glad, too. That was complain'ey--forgive me.
I still love the gym. In case you were wondering.
I kind of love that my kid begs to go. It almost forces me out the door (not quite), but it's great. I made it there 5x last week, and am on track for the same this week. It feels good to get in a routine. I've added the Mama Laughin Arm Workout and boooooiiiii does that hurt so good. I love it.
After going to the gym yesterday morning, running 2 miles, doing the arm workout & such, Declan and I decided to go out and run the trail after he got home from work, too. We took the kids (obviously), and did 3.1 miles---it felt great, until this morning. My legs are sore, and I didn't stretch good last night. Yet? I am going to Zumba this morning, huzzah.
Despite working out so much, I have to say--I've been feeling kind of down about my body. I know that doesn't quite make sense, and I don't know if it's hormones or what. But, yea--downer days (weeks) suck. So yesterday I made myself side-by-side some photos because I needed to see how far I've come and feel some confidence in that.
I'm telling you, if you've been working hard, getting healthier--and feel down about yourself. Side by side the ish out of your photos, I promise it helps.
Also, if talk about weight loss and all that is annoying? That's fine. It's a huge part of my life and I can't just ignore it.
Moving on, again. I told you this would be random.
I just want to share a cute photo of my kid.
TYPICAL LUCY. Always doing the silly attack thing. Babies are so fun at this age--so, so stinkin fun.
Oh, It's MAY, guys. In case you didn't know.
You know what May brings? Oh, a 3 YEAR OLD. Yea. So, we have a Hello Kitty party coming up in less than 2 weeks and let's just talk about all I've done for it for a minute.
So, if I go MIA, I'll be off birthday crafting, or something. I'm hoping the motivation hits for that, because right now? It's not there.
Ok. I gotta go--my kid just locked herself in the bathroom. Never a dull moment :)
