Oooo, I wanna be like you!!!
So for those of you who don't know, I live in the perfect neighborhood. (Yes, all my neighbors you are perfect). At times it can be a little overwhelming. Everyone is skinny. (I'm not.) They all run marathons. (I can't run down the street after my kids without getting winded.) They have clean houses. (I live in fear of someone showing up unannounced between the hours of say 8 am and 11:30 pm) They all are stylish and cute. (I live in PJ's) and they all are wonderful moms who do fun activities with their kids (My kids think fun is a box of crayons and blank paper). So yes, to all you perfect moms out there, I say thank you. I wanna be like you!
May 1st is my new begginings. I have spent the last week cleaning, dejunking the kids toys and clothes closet, folding the mound of laundry that was my washroom floor, having freeflowing cherry coke and donuts, all in preperation for this day. So my may goals are to...Pick up after the kids immediatly. Get up in the morning and excercise before I write. Spend at least 1 hour with each kid doing something fun for them. Try to get dressed and ready for the day before 9 am at least 4 days a week (I don't want to stretch myself too far!!!) And hopefully with a whole neighborhoodful of good examples I can try to be a better balanced person. So we will see, but so far so good. I did workout this morning (Still in my workout clothes, so this will be one of my scrounge days!) Oh and I am trying to give up coke, so if I am grumpy for say the next year or two, please understand!!!
