Monday - do I need to say anymore?
To back track a little Friday was wonderful the start of our weekend and for me a little pamper time. I went with my mother to get our hair done and I took my little man with me because his sister was home sick with my brother. We went and had a great bonding time. To say the least my boy was so good and we had a good time. We arrived home to a not so happy Alexee and then we were able to go to bed. Saturday was wonderful low key and just veggin around the house to get ready for a fun filled day at Knotts. WELL guess what Alexee was recovering and Tyson was falling fast. He got sick just the same as Alexee but oh so much worse. What do they say "The bigger they are the harder they fall?"
We had to skip Knotts and I then concentrated on getting two of my family members well. So you go for the good old BART (bananas, apple sauce, rice and toast) diet! I tell you it works every time.
Fast forward to Monday morning - my most dreaded day of the week. Trying to get two children up and ready for school and myself included (note: today I forgot to put on deodorant due to the rush). Today Alexee was just not having it so that meant a rough morning. Today we were a few minutes late but it all worked out. Off to school they went and me to work, as Tyson slept away at home. Did I mention that the garage door opener/closer didn't work today either - go figure.
At work today I didn't get much done because I had to drive into LA today to do my EEO visit. However, these are the days that I love being out in the field seeing what we are building and who is doing it. After our meeting then we headed to lunch where I had a Greek Salad no dressing woo hoo! On the way back from LA I had a bladder attach and couldn't wait to get back to the office. As I settle down at my office for the first time today I am bombarded with more to do then when I started today! Job security, right????
After work I had to race home and get my grocery list to then take the entire family grocery shopping - can I say THANK you to Stater Brothers and the grocery cart with the car attached!!!!
Then homeward bound to put the groceries away tend to a sick hubby and cook dinner. Thankfully the babies were able to occupy themselves for awhile and finally at 6 pm we set down for dinner and only toast and bananas for my hubby :(! After dinner we treated the babies to a special dessert - Fruit tarts!!! It was such a sight - cool whip everywhere and two big smiles!
After dinner it was a world wind. Clean up, feeding the animals, changing the kids, hubby in bed, playdoe, brushing teeth, reading books and off to say our prayers and on top of that fit in a workout with Jillian and the SHRED!!!
As I sit here recapping my weekend I just cant that my heart is swelling because when I picked up my daughter she said mommy I love you. Before we went to bed to say our prayers the three of us heald hands and basked in our love. This is why I work, this is why I am who I am, I love hard, play hard and I cherish every moment - the good, bad and ugly!!
I am off to a great year so far. Mending relationship, growing relationships, enjoying life to the fulliest and adapting the following motto: (and yes I know that it is also the motto for AA but I just think it holds a lot).
God grant me the serenity
