I scored major points with my boys yesterday.
Brian: Mom! How did you think of that? It's so cool!!
Mom: Well, I was looking at the Marbleworks and looking at the stairs at the same time,
and the idea hit.
That's just how it happens.
Brian: I hope that happens to me sometime!!!
Anyone else have full calendars this last seven days of school?
I'm treading water. Every single day on our weekly wipe off refrigerator calendar is filled with red. Red stands for must-do. Blue is optional - there is no blue this week. Today alone we have five must-do's, with the first appt at 8:45 am.
After school make up tests, end of year assignments, field days, picnics, graduation parties, showers, Sunday School picnic, last week of volleyball..... they all happen with a very short amount of time.
I'm ready for summer and lazy bedtime schedules.
Today begins a cold front - we won't see 80 again for at least the next 10 days. It's also windy which means very little ballooning, but lots of great laundry drying. I never did tackle the muddy laundry yesterday (instead - more red: haircut appt, dentist appt, etc....) Today I'm hoping to get the first load out on the line before that 8:45 appt.
I'm still taking it easy on my knee - I can feel it especially at the end of a long day, like the one we spent at Greenfield Village. I am, however, still going down on the scale. I'm down 14.6 pounds since the middle of April. *pumps fist* The goal this time is to KEEP it off. The Fitbit helps to keep me focused and helps me keep track of how much I'm really moving during the day. Yesterday I didn't move nearly as much as I would have guessed that I did - so it helps to keep the eating in perspective. A quick peek at how many steps I've taken/how active I've been lets me know if I can have a piece of dessert at the party or not.
It also helps me to pace my walking - to try and get some of my 10,000 steps earlier in the day so it doesn't become impossible to achieve by the end of the day.
We're walking to the 8:45 appt this morning.
