I am a working mom to 3 active children ages 12, 9, & 5. We are blessed to be able to provide many opportunities for our kids to learn, grow and express themselves. However, this also makes for very busy parents. It has become a real challenge to make time for myself. Honestly it has started to feel impossible. I'm really trying to put into prospective the fact that I'm not the only one in this situation and that it is possible to fit in things that matter like your health and exercise. ...

It's not that you can't....it's how can you? Its a challenge I've started with myself called 1 Good Thing. What 1 Good Thing have you done for yourself today?

Hey!! School did start yesterday. Super proud of myself. I had a built in excuse to skip bootcamp yesterday and I still went and managed to get little one off just fine.

As for this smoke.... I'm over it. Everyday it just blah. And my eyes and nose don't like it every much either. I'm not hoping for snow quite yet but some wind or rain would be ok.

I decided I am going to try my best to think positive and look for the positive in everything as much as I can. I'm used to having less than 20 kids but I have had more than that and I know it is doable. It's all about the training we do with them at the beginning of the year. I was remembering that for me the last two years (probably because I had a ten week old and then a one year old at the beginning of those years) were also tough at the begininning but it didn't take long to see progress with the kids behavior. And as of today I am seeing progress already.
I didn't get my workout in this morning because I got so little sleep last night that I was too tired and didn't think it would benefit. I was thinking and hoping that maybe it was just a one time thing that he got sick. So I sent him to daycare but told my husband to be ready to pick him up if they called. They didn't call but he was in different clothes when my husband got him and they didn't tell him anything this afternoon when he picked him up at the usual time. That's a little frustrating but I guess if he had done it more than once they would have called. And so far this evening he is acting fine. Just like maybe he is tired, but so am I!
I totally understand having to get up even earlier than you originally planned. I am getting up at 4:45 but in order to get a good thirty minute workout I really need to get up earlier. Because I want to get to work as early as possible too, but that hasn't been happening this week yet. Tuesday I decided I will just do twenty minute workouts for now. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!
What kind of job do you have?

Uhhhhhhhgggggggg smoke. LOL. That's how I feel about that. hahah.

I agree. I hate the snow. I will admit that. I hate it. But I hate the smoke more. I was unable to run since Sunday, and walking Stella Bella presents challenges. I come home and think about calling Partners in Home Care and asking if they can bring by some Oxygen without a doctor's order. LOL.

It is not near as bad here as it was in Washington. (We had ash falling like snow on us when we went outside) But it is very much undesirable.
Did you guys start school today? Man, it was a bittersweet day sending my big kid to 5th grade!
