So last week, BOTH my girls got signed up for stuff offered at their schools. My oldest is taking a drawing class. I know I'm probably a bit bias but I think she has real talent for art, especially for a 6 year old and I'd like to embrace that. Her first class was Friday afternoon and she loved it! My youngest got signed up for a program at her daycare which is basically a weekly PE class. They use parachutes and balls and dance, jump, etc. It's supposed get kids to enjoy being fit and active. I like this idea a lot. Her first session was Thursday and she had a lot of fun. She loves Coach Ryan and it breaks up the week a little bit for her. So for those of you following along, both my girls are signed up for 1 activity which was one of my goals for the year. Wahoo! I'd still like to get them both into a dance, gymnastics or swim group but one thing at a time. Friday was also when my computer issues got resolved and I was able to work from home which I was infinitely grateful for given how I was feeling.
Saturday was spent doing laundry the entire day at my mother's. The new washer/dryer was supposed to be installed Saturday afternoon but I didn't want to wait around in case something went wrong and it didn't get delivered. Instead of being annoyed that I had to spend my whole day Saturday doing laundry, I was content to spend the day with my mom and my girls and visit and catch up. It was rather nice.
Overall, the weekend had the potential to be annoying and even what some might consider "bad." For me, it was what it was. We are no worse for the wear having dealt with any of it. Today is Monday and while getting my butt out of bed this morning held no appeal whatsoever, I made it in and am ready to face the week. I'm feeling much better than last week so I feel Day 2 of the Shred coming on. I know, I know...at this rate, I'll never make it to 30 days...but I never said I was going to do 30 days IN A ROW. hehe. Of course, that was the original intent but sometimes plans need to be flexible. Overall, I'm proud of how I dealth with this weekend and the stresses that came with it. I'm finding myself in a very zen place with it and that feeds in to my approach for the coming year. And with that, I give you your Monday DEMotivation:
