Wednesday's tend to really drag me down. It is a long afternoon in Marion, and then back into town later that night. Yesterday I had a moment of weakness when I was in the library (paying for the missing library book) and Cade had pooped, Addy had to go potty, I was holding Kyler, and I had to be back to pick up Carter in 5 minutes. Quick thinking, and some smoke from my brain, and I had all 5 children in the bathroom, Cael holding Kyler, me changing poop, Addy peeing, Quincy standing under the dryer to turn it off and on. I even got a chance to go potty too. (when do we start calling it potty?) My aunt Linda had a great name for it, I will not reveal. Cade made sure everything flushed by flushing it about 4 more times then necessary. There are moments when I can feel very overwhelmed, which is normal for anyone. Yesterday I had one of those moments.
I have still be exercising almost everyday - now the results are starting to show up and I really am enjoying that and finding it to be motivating. I am doing the 100 push-ups, 200 sit-ups challenge. When completed I guess I will be able to do 200 sit-ups and 100 push - ups. 6 weeks to accomplish this, 3 days a week. I was on week 3 day 1 last night. I had to laugh, wow, I was getting tired, what a bummer. I will complete this, my abs will be happy - I am sure they are happy now having helped support 8 incredible children. My arms will be ready for summer, I may even be able to wave without flexing first to avoid the extra under arm wave. Guess time will tell on this one.
Thursday and a new day, looking forward to schooling the children and maybe relaxing a bit.
Today is Gabi's birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY - 5 years old, a whole hand!
