I’ve had a great week! I need to share a few funny stories. First off, Happy Valentine’s Day! I love the red and pink and seeing the kids have fun and I love giving my family little presents on Valentine’s morning and making heart pancakes (: (: (: We celebrated this morning because who knows where everyone will be Saturday morning? Here they are:
Our weather has been unseasonably warm this winter. I’m not complaining at all even if I do like to ski now! It’s felt like Spring for weeks. This leads me to STORY #1! We got a treadmill for Christmas and I’ve only used it a handful of times because of our awesome weather. Well, I had an hour to spare the other day while all the kids were at school so I decided to run. It has many fat burning programs to follow. I found a good 20 minuter. I thought I was a little better than a beginner so I chose intermediate level. O.K. here I am before my run (: so happy! I did not take an after shot. I about died. I’m running merrily along at warm up speed when the treadmill jumps to 8.9 speed and 2 % incline. That lasted about 10 seconds for me. I tried to keep up but unfortunately I had to veer off course and lower my speed. Then! It alternated with a 7.0 speed and a 6 % incline. Who the heck decided this was intermediate level? I felt like I was completely out of shape. However, this has given me determination! I want to start out on beginner level and conquer each level! New goal for me!
On to STORY #2!! My life has taken a busy turn and most of that is due to the Elementary school play that I’m in charge of. Sounds pretty mild, right? No no no!!! I’m the grand organizer on every level and we are down to one month left and I’m feeling a small panic beginning to come over me! We have practices in the morning before school and I’m there Tuesday-Friday. My family is on a pretty good schedule, everyone knows who needs to be where and when. Well, one morning this week I was at practice and my daughter didn’t have to be there. Everyone else had left for school and work. She stays home to get ready and be with her little brother. I leave a little early from practice to pick her up and bring her to school. As I’m driving home I look at my phone and see a text from my neighbor that my 6 yr. old has knocked on her door. He was scared because no one was home at our house? I should mention he wanted to wear his sister’s purple and pink silky jammies the night before (: I figured he didn’t look for his sister. When I walked in the door, I found her…sound asleep in her warm bed! Oh lovely! We were ready in 5 minutes. I was laughing laughing. I’m glad I live in a good neighborhood.
Since my life has been slightly hectic lately, two sweet Moms in my neighborhood told me they’d bring me dinner! STORY #3! I never say no to dinner and that’s probably the best thing they could do for me. I’m a foodie myself and I love to make food for people. So, when I heard my good friend and fellow director had a sick baby with RSV, I had to bring her dinner. Hmmm…well, I decided to make a big pot of soup and rolls and bring dinner to her. I felt a little funny making this dinner for her when my friends were bringing me dinner, but I didn’t want to tell them not to? I tried to time it just right and get the dinner over to my friend’s house before my dinner came, but wouldn’t you know? As I was walking out my door with my arms full, the two of them came walking up my driveway. I about died laughing again when I told them what I was doing. Oh geez!! Once again, what great people I live around. They laughed too and didn’t mind. Let’s just say the stress of meal planning has ceased for a few days!
I’ve run out of time and I need to go celebrate Valentine’s with my kids at school! You’ll have to wait till tomorrow to hear about the best day to weigh yourself and I’ll include a super GREAT overall body workout that I gave my church group this week. My whole body is sore!
Have a Happy Day!! Be Mine xoxoxoxo! Don’t give into the chocolate and treats over the weekend!!
