I think that the months of April and May are by far busier then the holidays. There is just not enough time in the day! Practices, games, TAKS tests, tutors, homework, Spring photos, not to mention the regular stuff like laundry and cleaning. I do like to be busy though. It's nice to HAVE something to do, rather then HAVE to do it. And that's really how we feel about it. The kids love playing sports and never complain about practices or games. We are blessed with that. Also, of course we've had rain outs and swine flu cancellations, it's kinda nice to have an unexpected day at home.
It's been interesting watching Lindsey in softball. She started off ready to go, working hard. Then about two weeks in, she realized she wasn't doing much. Kinda the same as sitting on the sidelines like last year. Except last year, she could read a book. Then last week something clicked in her. And she's really starting to enjoy herself. She's the ultimate cheerleader on the field of course and always ready while in the dugout to bust out something. She's perfect for that. But she's also learning to pay attention and be a part of conversations that Dad and lauren have. Dad got her to try pitching and she loved it. Who knows what will happen with that. But for now, she's good. She's happy.
As for me. I'm back on the wagon again. I'm doing the Live strong challenge. It's great and tracks what you are eating and how you are exercising. That really helps to keep me on track. Plus I have started the 30 Day shred with Julian Michaels. Oooh fun. Not. yeah, 20 minutes of awful. But 20 minutes is not much, I can handle that. I don't have to get up too early and it's quick. Plus the added bonus. I've found that when I have on tennis shoes, I do more. Seriously, think about it. When you have shoes on that you can easily kick off, you do, you sit down and, kick your shoes off. But when you have tennis shoes on, it's not so appealing to curl your feet up and relax on the couch. So this morning I cleaned out the garage and ran all my errands. I vowed not to sit down until I had gotten through my list. And I did. So for today, I'm doing GREAT. I'm kinda proud of myself! Now about tomorrow...
