Well, after writing nothing for a little over a week, I thought I would put up a quick post to let you know that I am still around.
How did the vacation turn out? You ask. Terrible, hahaha. We managed to clean about 1/3 of the basement, and my father’s room. We never touched the attic, or cubby, or hell… even the living room and the kitchen! Those two areas caught the crap and now I’m going to spend today getting them back in line for our daily living. Also, our dryer is currently oit of commission. Usually at this time of year, I don’t care. I prefer line-drying my clothes anyway. However, our weather hasn’t felt like cooperating up until today, so I have this mountain of laundry to go through! I think laundry is one of the more frustrating things in this house. I get all caught up, and then BAM something happens… something ALWAYS happens when it comes to laundry.
Well that sucks, you might say, but was I able to keep a healthy lifestyle? Get running and all that jazz? No. I never did. I think we ate out probably 80% of the time, which of course wreaked havoc on our finances and our health. I put on 4 of the pounds I had already worked so hard to lose!!!
Well, with that all said, I’ll go get back to fixing up my house so that I can at least have a clean living room to sit in tonight while I work on…. something. Or don’t. I might just play video games or read, lol.
Sometimes, it’s not about beating yourself up over the things you did or didn’t do, it’s about how you pick yourself up afterwards and carry on. I’m choosing to go get some stuff done, and then enjoy this beautiful day with my family. Because the one thing we did accomplish, was spending more time together, and at the end of the day, I think that’s what my daughters enjoy the most.
Talk to you soon,
