Old School

Morning, all! I woke up with my alarm at 6:45am, made sure kids were awake and getting ready for school, and fell back asleep. And woke up again at 8:30am, and got ready to go to Savers. Jim and I were meeting Amanda and her grandma, and Terra and her mom there. Should be a fun time.

No meds for me. I was trying to convince myself that I was better. I felt somewhat ok. But a bit off. Kinda drugged up, although I'd taken no drugs. My ears felt full and a bit ringy. Stupid head cold...

Anyway, got to Savers, and didn't get much, but looked around for a bit. I found a few shirts for Eme, ad few t-shirts for myself, a few pairs of $0.99 shoes (one pair of crop boots and one pair of sandals), a pair of jammie pants for the little boys, and a pair of pants for me. Jim got a hot wheels car, and we headed out.

And stopped by Dollar Tree on the way home. We needed new brooms. Because they're disposable, apparently - hehe. Like socks. Do you guys have that problem too? Socks seem to disappear in my house.... Silly Socks.

We got home, and I changed clothes real fast. See, I was wearing my biggest pair of pants, and I had MAJOR muffin top going on. And it was SO uncomfortable. And looked bad. So I put on a pair of black sweat pants and rolled them up. Classy, I know. And put on my new star wars shirt. And a brown bandana and some sequeny brown sandals. Yeah, I was going all out...

And I dropped Jim off at the bus, and headed to my Therapy appointment. Terra and Amanda had invited me to L&J's cafe with their fam, but I'd forgotten about the appointment's. And, I was trying to be good on my diet (de-muffin topping myself...) Anyway, I had my regular lunch, and sat in the parking lot of my therapist office for about 40 minutes and designed. Because I was SURE that I'd just nap if I was home. ha! I was tempted to do it in the parking lot - hehe.


Therapy was good. The doctor seemed to notice that I was sliding. Yeah, I am. I need to get a hold of myself. Reign back in the eating. And start exercising again. Doing the good things that will help balance out the hard times. Instead of making my life even MORE off balanced by NOT doing the good things when things go wrong. Does that even make any sense?

Anyway, I felt much better after talking to the doctor, and saw things in perspective. I'm dedicated to doing things right again. Back on the diet :) And doing the things that make me happy. With the people that make me happy :)

Anyway, after therapy, I went to Walmart to get more Niquil. hehe. Because I was out. And I needed some more for tonight. LOL! I also got mechanical pencils and colored pencils for Jake. And a few other things that we needed.
I got home in time to get stuff put away, then headed to the bus to get Jim. And took an hour nap before the kids got home. Then we all got ready for the pool.
Jake was at the youth center, and I loaded up and drove the other kids to the pool. We met Kari and Amanda and kids there. While we were there, we found out that T-ball/Baseball was canceled for the evening. WAY too windy in El Paso today...

Do I look young today? I got asked if I was over 18 for something or another that I bought today. LOL! Maybe it's the pig tail braids.... But the gray hair gives it away, just a tad...

Here's Amanda (in green) and her Grandma, getting ready to head home.


And check out the Scentsy warmer. Yeah, I don't think that the wax evaporates. I'm thinking that my kids were playing in it... Freakin' kids! hehe :) I replaced the wax with new scents today. Smells SO good!

We got home at 5:30pm, I left the kids in charge of doing chores, and headed to pick up Jake. We headed home, he did chores, had dinner, and after ALL the chores were done, we watched an episode of Phineas and Ferb with those done. Tom is STILL out there cleaning.... Hurry, Tom, you're gonna miss it all!

It's almost 8pm. I'm gonna put the little kids to bed, and watch an episode of V with the big kids, and go to bed. I just dosed myself with Niquil, and t should be taking effect any time now...

I'm swimming in the morning. Cause I'm getting back into my exercise groove. I felt good when I was in my groove, you know...

I like your work! I especially like this. And I'm glad that today was even a BIT better for you. I know it will feel good to get back on track, and I know how hard it is to get there, but you WILL!

It totally makes sense! And I do it all the time to myself! It's just so hard to make myself do the good things when I feel so off balanced!

You DO look young for your age, Bethany. As for the gray hairs, I can sympathize. They're a pain in the rear to keep up with if you try to dye them.

You can do it with getting back on track!!! I'm cheering for you and praying for you. Hugs!!!!
