Yesterday I was lazy. Today I feel like the most productive person on the planet. I really want to stress that my productive might still be your lazy. I don’t aim high, so I’m usually giddy over small wins. It’s pretty much my life philosophy. I’m totally kidding, but that would be an interesting way to go through life. Everything you did would be a huge accomplishment. “Today, I woke up AND my socks match! I am so awesome!” Wait, that is how I think… matching socks is hard.
Anyway, this morning I took Maddux to the babysitter’s house for the day. I try to get him there at least once and week or two, just to keep him in the habit of going. He’s becoming more and more attached, so I think it’s going to be a little rough on him the first few days that I have to go back to work. I figure this way he’ll still remember who the heck she is. Ryne also ended up having to go into work today, so I figured today was as good a day as any to send him on over there. But not before we got our morning squats in. Really, though, it’s impressive how long children can do this.
Another benefit of the plan was that I would get to go to barre in the morning! I know it’s all mental really, but there is something to be said about getting your workouts over with while you’re still practically asleep. I even went in with bed head. I’ve literally given up on impressing anyone at this point, can you tell? At least my outfit matched my headband. That counts for something. PS: That’s a Goody brand headband. They come in packs of about a million and they work better than all my expensive ones. If you have thin hair and a peanut head, they may also work for you.
After barre I did the one thing I never, ever, ever want to do. I battled the forest that in encroaching on our yard. It got pretty heated, but I won in the end. The ants ended up waging guerrilla warfare on me (I suppose they sided with the weeds), too. I didn’t think anything of them, because they usually don’t bite. Today I was lit up like a Christmas tree. That’s what I get for weeding in flip flops. I am a huge idiot. I didn’t want an ankle tan line, but now my foot might as well have been put through a miniature meat grinder. Fun times.
I also did laundry, dishes, and put away some of Maddux’s old things. It’s sad to put away toys that are now too “baby” for him. I will not cry. I will not cry. Okay, I’ll cry.
Right now, aside from fighting back the tears and typing this post, I am trying to figure out what to do with the last hour I have before picking him up. Oh, that’s right. Relax and do nothing. Yep, sounds about right. Tonight I’m going out with some friends, so I’m pretty excited about that. Which means I’ll have to, gasp!, shower and find something appropriate to wear. I’ll pay you a nickel to Skype with me and help me put an outfit together. Seriously. A nickel. You’d be crazy not to.
Have a GREAT weekend!
