Wow. I officially cannot pour my thoughts into one full-blown, cohesive blog post and instead it's random things, all the time. Mannnnnnnn. I have got to get my act together, but my brain has to follow along and that's just not working right now.
Whatever. We'll go with it. Some writing (for me) is better than none, I guess.
So. Did you watch Matthew Schuler on The Voice last night? If you are a fan of the show, then you KNOW this dude, because he is AWESOME. The cool part is my sister & her husband, Jeff are really good friends of his--and I met him at their wedding. Such a sweet heart he has, and my gosh, that VOICE. Fasted 4-chair turn in The Voice history. So. Now that you know by association someone on the show, will you vote for him weekly? :) There are so many ways to vote (and you have until 11AM EST today!). You can call in to 1-877-553-3709 up to 10x. You can vote on their site here. You can buy his Wrecking Ball cover from last night on iTunes (and that's worth 5 votes). Basically, one person can vote like 50x for someone. Awesome. So do it.
Funny and random Matthew story. At my sister's wedding, he was a crazzzzzyyyyy fun dancer (shocker, right?). Doing the worm, and break-dancing and what not. In fact, he for sure made some air time on my sister's Four Weddings episode. Emeline was so little and on the dance floor barefoot, and he accidentally stepped on her foot/ankle while dancing. HE FELT SOOOO BAD, poor guy. Like, was the sweetest thing ever to her. She was acting traumatized, and had a black and blue ankle for a while, and referred to him as "da boy who stepped on my leg at aunt susie's weddin'" FOREVER. haha. They're all good now, swear. And Emeline says to give him your vote, she's over it now. ;)
This morning my dog was laying on the couch right by my head. Something spooked him and he barked, that high-pitched, ermahgaaaah bark. DIRECTLY, I mean, directly in my ear. My eardrum is still ringing. It immediately made me see red. There is nothing quite like that. I immediately thought, OH THIS is how Wednesday is gonna be, huh? My dog can be such a jerk.
My body HATES me today. I don't tend to workout 2x in a day. Everrrrry once in a while when I'm feeling like I can, I will, or if I have the time. Yesterday morning I did a Sh'Bam class (it's a les-mills dance type cardio, which I don't really do anymore), and then Declan and I always go back for evening Bootcamp. Last night's class was Tabata.
Oh.my.bones. and muscles. you guys.
We did this. Each exercise 8x, for 20 intense seconds, with 10 seconds in between. Holy freak. I think my hips are out of socket today.
I'm trying to decide if I should be kind to my body today and rest a little, go walking with the girls, or something, not so, grueling. Or if I should just suck it up buttercup and go do body pump and kill my legs and bum even more. Sigh. Hard decisions.
Suddenly the weather is getting really cold, like, the kind of cold where you feel trapped and Oh my Gosh What I am Going to Do with Kids all Winter Long? 'Tis the worst season of the year for moms not to go insane. We miss the outdoors something fierce when it's too cold to be out a lot. It's the time of the year where I curse not having a real playroom, my house forever looks like an endless pit of toys, and I'm extra-thankful for Preschool days.
Speaking of Thanksgiving.
Favorite holiday, hands down.
Bring it on, Turkey. Bring it. I am thankful for you.
Also, this made me laugh. Like, a lot.
This. This morning.
"You have ballet tonight"
"Yes, today tonight."
......"YAY! I HAVE BALLET!"
Three year olds, man. Today & tonight. Same day, and yet--so confusing, right? :)
On that note. Go vote for Matthew Schuler. While I hobble around and try to get my sore butt dressed for the day.
