So many things running thru my head

I have so many posts running thru my head and so little time to post them all since I mainly blog while (ssshhh) I'm at work.  I just don't have time at home.

So, I'll make this into a bullet post.  It's the only way I know how to get it all out.

  • I signed G up for T-ball...but now feel as tho I'm regretting it and she hasn't even started.  There are two practices a week from 6 to 7.  WHAT?  Maybe I'm being unreasonable, inflexible....but she's 6 years old.  We start bedtime around 7pm.  She's goo by 7:30....this child needs her sleep.  And then I updated our calendar with practices and games and HOLY SH!T.  I freaked out.  Then I emailed the coach and found out that once games start there will be no more practices so that makes me feel a bit better.
  • Along the same lines....there is a strong possibility that Hubby won't be home with A before G and I have to leave for practices/games.  I'll have to leave at 5:40 to get to the practice and the games.  On days that I work at the office I don't get home until 5...then have to make dinner.  How/what do I make a healthy dinner that can be eaten quickly so that we can get out the door?  I have a hard enough time with menu planning to begin with now I have to factor in practices and games?  AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!
  • A...and her sleeping...what am i going to do with her.  A is a terrible sleeper......she rarely goes to bed without some sort of fuss.  I've gotten to the point where I let her read in bed for a bit but.....some nights she doesn't go to sleep until 8:45!  She's 4!!!  And I need her up around 6:30 to get her to school!  On days where she naps at's worse.  It's hard too b/c hubby and I are tired and well, she doesn't understand that.
  • Last night I didn't sit down from 5pm until 9 pm.  Between dinner and laundry and putting laundry away and putting G to bed and really putting A to bed too..then lunches, dealing with A some more.....
  • I'm very unhappy with my body.  I am 10 pounds heavier than last year....I feel as tho I have a spare tire.....and I don't like it.  But I'm also have a hard time trying to find time to work in exercise.   I'd be happy just to walk but now with t-ball and to do I this?
  • I'm also unhappy with my stylist and I can't seem to get on the right page.  It probably just needs more time to grow a bit but.......I just don't like what I see in the mirror every day.
  • I've been cleaning out my closets....A LOT.  Yesterday I got rid of two bags of clothes.....and I have another one started.  I need to do the same with the girls things.  I tend to keep all of their clothes.
  • I'm still waiting for Stacey and Clinton to come to my door and offer my $5,000 for a complete makeover.  They can throw away whatever they want.  Waiting and waiting and waiting..........
  • As much as I don't hate my job....I'm very much going to miss being at home this summer with my girls.  I loved being home with them last summer....being able to set up the pool or the makes me sad.
  • My house is a mess.  We started a rather large project the weekend before we left and we are still working on replacing the molding in the master bedroom.  Still mulling over finishing the basement.  There are clothes EVERYWHERE.  I haven't unpacked our suitcase from our vacation.....and there are summer clothes for the girls all over the floor of the living room.  I need to clean that up.
  • I have off from work on Good Friday an Holy Monday.  I will keep the girls out of daycare on Friday and have a day to myself on Monday.  I'm looking forward to both.

Well, I suppose I should get to work.  I want to discuss my "vacation" in my next post.

  1. My thoughts:
    1. She doesn't have to go to every practice. If it's too much for your family, just skip it every once in a while. It's only t-ball and she's only 6. Not a big deal.
    2. Forget healthy on those nights. It won't kill you guys to eat a sandwich and chips (and some grapes!). That's what we do. Sometimes, Morgan eats in the car on the way to practice and the rest of us have a picnic once we're there. Or do a crock-pot meal and let her eat early, Dad and A eat when they get home, you eat after practice. Seriously, just make it as easy as possible. Sandwiches, leftovers, hot dogs.
    3. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred workout. It's 20 minutes. It's killer, but it's a great workout and it's only 20 minutes. $10 at WM. My tip: Put your workout clothes on the minute you get home from work. That way, you're ready to go whenever you have a spare 20 minutes. And start out with 3 lb weights.
