Oh My! I sent my little guy off to preschool today! Full day preschool!
I’m very torn about this, it’s weird. On one hand, I’m so excited about this school and all the things he will be learning. Plus being an only child I think it’s really important for him to be around the other kids. But he’s my little buddy! I’m going to miss him SO MUCH!
However, I feel I can finally get enough hours in the day to get all my work done where I don’t feel like I’m torn between spending time with him or getting accomplished what I need to. Now the mornings and evenings we’ll have no interruptions. Overall, I’m happy to have a consistent schedule this fall where I’m not doing a complete balancing act every day. All summer I just felt as if I was living day to day with no structure or plan.
So I didn’t post yesterday, except for my Note to Self. Like a typical weekend, my day started off GREAT and by night fall I’m snacking my way until bed. However, we did have an very active weekend. I got a great run in on Saturday and then Sunday the family when for a hike/picnic. We packed sandwiches and hit a local trail. About a milk into it the toddler was exhausted! So I ended up carrying him about 1/3 of the time. He’s just about 40 lbs and let me tell you, that’s a workout! My arms felt like spaghetti string by the time we made it back to the car.
The husband offered to carry him but I wanted the extra workout. Plus he was in one of those mushy moods. You know, where they want to rest their heads on your shoulders. I just love that and I know in a few years he won’t want to find comfort in moms embrace anymore. So I’m taking advantage now.
After the hike we ALL took naps. Man did that feel good. Then it was time to make dinner which I recorded for GreenLiteBites video of the week. I took my hand at Beer Butt Chicken and it was TO DIE FOR! The husband has already claimed the leftovers for lunch!
Other then that, I’m trying to get ahead today with a ton of work. I hope to be posting at least one of my book review today as well as record an Ask Roni video.
Oh! and the husband and I are took the initial test for hundredpushups.com! I’ll fill you in more later on this but he concept is to follow the program so in 6 weeks you can do 100 straight pushups!! We’ll see, I’m just happy the husbands into it.
Hope you all have a great Monday!
