Week in Review.

Okay, so here's the deal.  I've been trying to come up with an exciting post for two days now, but I've got _________.  (nothing)

Don't get me wrong.  Things are happening around here.  Big important things like...
  • C finishing up his first week of summer school!  He likes it.  He really likes it.  He's been tired and slightly confused by the school lunches, but I haven't had to yell at him and/or coerce in order to get him ready for school every day and that says a lot!  I'm so glad that he seems to enjoy it and I'm praying that this trend continues.
  • I've been enjoying my large chunks of free time, though I have a confession:  I don't quite know what to do with myself.  I mess around with little things (working a bit, checking email, doing laundry, etc.) when I should be tackling big projects.  I'm just not used to this new schedule yet.  Yesterday I sat down and created a routine for myself, but so far today I have completely ignored it.  Would you like to know why?  Because I made exercise the first item on my agenda and I have never, ever been able to workout first thing in the morning.  That's why.
  • You'll be happy to know that I have kept my commitment to exercise every day (so far) this week.  I worked out with Leslie on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and yesterday--for a change of pace--I walked outside.  Today I may mow the front yard.  I am not fit or perky yet, but I'm sticking with it.   The thing is:  I don't really feel motivated to work out until about 11AM.  Perhaps I'm lazy.  Perhaps I just have to wait for the caffeine to kick in.  For whatever reason, this seems to be when I'm getting it done. 
  • Working out at 11AM is inconvenient.  Perhaps as I get used to doing it everyday my workout mojo will move to an earlier time slot?  We'll see.
  • What else?  Summer school started and it seems to be going well so far.
  • I started cleaning out our garage yesterday.  Exciting, isn't it?
So now you see why I haven't posted in a few days.  We're just busy finding our new rhythm--a rhythm that will change again in three weeks when summer school ends for C.  I've got a lot of interesting things to mark off of my to-do list before that happens so wish me luck!


  1. I post when an idea pops into my head or I go someplace, etc. Blog burnout is a real issue, so don't make yourself crazy. We will be here, ready to read when you are ready to write! xo,

  2. I completely understand!! Those women that post a new completed quilt 3 times a weeks and in between a new handmade outfit for their kids are just not "real". They may have great posts and really get that stuff done, but at what cost? Blogging shouldn't be forced I don't think. It should be fun.

    I know what you mean about not feeling like exercising until later. I'm the same way. The difference is you're doing it anyway :) It doesn't matter what time, it's getting it done that's important!
