Today has been one of those days that I am glad is just about over. It started with some five month old cutie-pie deciding that 4am would be a fabulous time to wake up and kick, “punch” and laugh. Once he finally went back to sleep, about 45 minutes later, I finally fell asleep too but was rudely awaken but a well slept 2.5 year old who thought 6:30am would be a great time to get us all up — who am I kidding we are all usually up by 6:30am it just felt so much earlier today.

I woke up kind of foggy because it was one of those times when I was just so awake at 4am but I didn’t want to get up but by the time a fell back asleep and had to get up for the day I just felt meh. So I headed straight to the shower to wash off the funk (literally – Alder spit up on me and figuratively).  

The day overall was kind of a weird one but I did finishing cleaning the living room (although you might roll your eyes at that statement if you saw it right now). Edith declared to me that she didn’t want to take a nap and fought it so I threw my hands up and said lets get outside and I went for my run (more on my training plan in another post). Side note 20 minutes in to my run and she passed out in the BOB with her book in hand and slept for another 40 minutes. 

After a run all I could think about is how we have basically no food to make meals (poor planning on my part) and how much I just wanted to go out for dinner but we have declared a dining out freeze this month (!!!!) Instead I prepped some dinner and then it was time to pack the kids up for Edith’s first swim class of the year which was great for me because I didn’t have to put a bathing suit on because swim lessons are Neil’s domain. Instead I got to sit in the pool viewing area, watch what I could see of the lesson and Alder napped on me while I read Gone Girl on the Kindle App on my phone (this book is insane). 

We headed home and Neil and I talked about how we both really wanted to go for dinner tonight but alas we made a commitment to our no spending money on dining out (I say spending money because if ya’ll want to take us to dinner feel free). So we are sticking to the plan but I am still kicking myself for not making a meal plan this week and therefore having about five things to eat. Anyways dinner out probably would have been a terrible idea anyways because Little Miss had a break down at home and refused dinner. Anyways life can be rough as a 2.5 year old for real. 

So now here I am on the couch with the last of the Christmas beer, writing this post with the Little Man laying on the couch next to me, kicking me (hoping this isn’t a foreshadow of the 4am to come). I am hoping to convince Neil to watch another episode of The Good Wife and I probably should get down to work on a meal plan – any recipes you are loving right now? 

Tell me about your day. Highs? Lows? In-betweens?

  1. Long days like this are hard to push through…way to make it! I hope this morning didn’t begin at 4am again. I felt in a funk yesterday too. It helped when I also went for a run and then had a random tears shed to my hubby. Must be that time… Here’s to a new day for both of us!!
