2 Years & Day 162: Lopping Away

I did some more lopping tonight. Wow! I wore out quicker than yesterday, but still the fact that I did it two days in a row. My back hurts pretty bad, but I feel great. Still more lopping to do, but I can do it 15 minutes at a time. It's really freeing to realize that it doesn't have to be done all at once. I need to get back to looking at our debt that way again, taking small bites. It didn't become that way overnight, it's not going to get better overnight. We just have to keep working at it a little at a time.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I'll be back on Monday, if not before!

2 Years & Day 161: Life is Good

So the last two mornings started off with sinus headaches that thankfully went away after taking some medicine and didn't come back. That is a huge praise! This morning's headache woke me up at 4:15 a.m. UGH! Both days I took some medicine and laid back down (forgoing a walk to try and beat the headache). Today after the kids left, I had a list of stuff I wanted to work on. One of those items was getting our loppers and lopping down some trees that have sprung up uninvited behind our garage. I spent 30 minutes working on that. Towards the end I was getting super tired, but I held up really well. I guess my walks are helping! Hopefully tomorrow or Saturday I can get out there and do a bit more. I made amazing progress in that area, but still need to pull some stuff to the alley to be hauled off and lop around MaryAnn's pen and some other areas around the yard.

2 Years & Day 160: Crazily Blessed

So tonight I'm thinking about how lucky I am. Remember when I was real low on kids in my child care? Now I'm bursting at the seams! I have 9 kids enrolled this summer (obviously they don't all come at the same time), but it's been a juggling act. Today was a full house day (most Wednesdays are) and it was crazy, but fun. My friend who works at the OSU Extension office came and did some stuff with the kids this morning. They had a good time and it was a nice change of pace. Now if I could only think of some other people to invite.

I promise I'll get back to my goals. I'm just trying to adjust to this new crazy schedule (6:30 arrivals and a new baby all day). It will all come together into a new routine.

2 Years & Day 159: Crazy Day

Well, today was absolutely crazy and I didn't even get a chance to look at my list of goals and work on them. Tomorrow's not looking much better. With the baby here, I don't even get much computer time at naptime. Things will settle into a routine soon. That's what I keep telling myself. LOL.

2 Years & Days 156, 157, & 158: The Heat is On

Someone left the heat on! Good grief it's been hot the last few days. I know the farmers are grateful because they need it to get the rest of the wheat out but that doesn't mean I have to enjoy it, does it? LOL.

I had a nice weekend with my friend at the conference, learned a lot, and then hung out with our friends at their house when I got home Saturday night. Yesterday was Father's Day and we took Tom out for pizza after church.

Hope everyone has a great week and manages to stay cool. Coming up tomorrow, I'm going to try to work on re-setting my goals since things have been kind of off-kilter lately.
