So here I am, it's 1:45pm and I'm sitting on my unmade bed finally writing a blog post after two months! Have I ever gone this long before? Possible, but I'm too lazy to look :)
Have I told you the news? I'm a stay at home mom - OFFICIALLY. WTF!
I think I'm pretty blessed as I have a job that thinks I'm worth keeping around so technically I am still employed and I'm a "casual employee". I work when they need me/when I have time. I love what I do and everyone I work with, so I'm pretty happy with the situation. It was kind of stressful in the beginning because I was wondering when exactly I would be having time to work, but it's going well so far!
I had these huge plans of blogging my first day as a stay at home mom. I searched and searched about women who went from working to being a SAHM and couldn't find too much. Want to know why??? We have no time. :)
I have read so so so many articles about being a working mother and a SAHM. Bo…
If I knew then what I know now, I would have been way worse :)
If I knew how much kids are supposed to get in trouble and explore and take chances, I would have taken more.
I was an extremely straight edge kid. I got good grades, I was involved in everything, and I think I NEVER broke the rules.
I have no idea what I was so scared of. My sister was bad growing up (really bad) - sorry Brook ;), My brother was even worse, haha. But me, I am not sure what element was missing in my brain but I was a goody two shoes to the MAX!
In college I may have let loose a tiny bit, but still, breaking the rules was not my thing.
If I knew then, what I know now, I would realize how much of it doesn't matter and I should have relaxed.
This popped into my head because as I was sitting eating my soup for lunch, all I could think was, I better get a load of laundry in, I have to clean up the kids room, I still have to shower, I have to get the kitchen cleaned up, what should I do about dinner if I tak…
Today I did my first body pump class. Needless to say I am SORE! Not as sore as I'm probably going to be tomorrow, but I could definitely feel it when I was washing my hair in the shower.
Did I love it? NO! I didn't hate it either though. It all started in cycling class today. My one instructor that I have on Mondays and Wednesdays always goes and she's been trying to get me to try it. So, today was the day. In fact, I'm pretty sure everyone in cycle class decided to go together which made it way more fun for me :)
I do like the idea of body pump, but I can't say I'm sold yet. The thing that wasn't my favorite was the fact I was pretty much just out there on my own. I probably could have asked for help or gone closer to the front, but showcasing my shortcomings isn't my favorite thing to do. A few of my cycle peeps helped me out in the beginning, which was a huge help! When we were laying down I pretty much just had to do whatever the people next t…
