Good Morning! Well, good day I guess. This is the internet, you could be reading this anytime you like. 🙂
So, I am continuing to battle myself. Slowly, the last few weeks my weight has crept up. It scares me! I am slipping into my bad habits. I am trying to treat my stress with food. Somehow, it is not working. I can’t imagine why a piece of chocolate is not making me less stressed out. It always seems like a good idea before I eat it.
I have been incredibly stressed out lately. My three year old is testing his limits. Things he had stopped doing he is re-visiting. Climbing on the counters to cause mayhem. Yesterday, I spent at least 30 minutes on two different occasions hanging out in the kitchen so he wouldn’t climb on the counters. Saturday, he found my container of coffee grounds and decided to “let it snow” coffee in with my spices and on the counter. I swear, he takes every opportunity that I am nursing as a chance to get into trouble. He is “adventuresome”.
Also, lately my hubby has been working a lot. In the last week two nights he was away and one night he didn’t make it home till past 1 am. I so look forward to the times he is home. I know long and crazy hours is not restricted to military life, but I do yearn for the day that we might be able to live on a more normal schedule. Not only to I like seeing my hubby, he also helps me with the boys.
Today, I read a post by another blogger James & Jax about her crazy weekend and how she felt like a mommy failure. I know 100% how she feels. I was also, a bit jealous of her though. At one point during her rough weekend she was able to call up her mother and hang out at her house. I wish we lived on the same coast as our families. I wish I could call up my mom and say, “Hey Mom, having a rough day. Can I drop off the boys for an hour?” The possibilities seem marvelous to me.
Enough with my excuses! Today is a fresh day. Its only 9:00 am, but I am on track with my points. I will do better today!!!
