Maniac Monday

It's Monday. Yes the dreaded Monday. It was so hard for me to go back to work today after being off work for a week. At least it went by fast. I overslept this morning. I cut my alarm off like I wasn't going to work. I think because I stayed up so late last night. It was 11:30 and Emily was chasing Sosha around the house like a wild person. O.M.G. I finally made Sosha sleep outside so Emily would calm down. I know she is going to be tired tonight. Emily not the dog. The dog gets to sleep all day. Ha. So I take her to school this morning after being out for a week, to find that my wishes came true and she has been moved to the "Chatterbugs" class! Woohoo! Not only that, but all of her friends have moved too! I can't believe it. I was more than thrilled. We were not expecting to move until school let out in May and the Pre-K kids started moving. Emily of course was still asleep so she was just rolling with it at that point. She has been in two different two year old rooms in the past year. The first one for 3 months. Once she was potty trained she moved to an "older" room with only 10 kids, but in the past few months 10 more kids moved in that are not necessarily "younger" but they are just becoming potty trained so of course the ones that were potty trained have started going backwards and having behavior issues. I'm so thankful for her to move to the "Chatterbugs" because it is the most structured room at the school. We will see how this goes! 

 My legs are so sore from running and doing squats yesterday. I was going to try to get on the treadmill this morning, but that didn't happen after I was up until after midnight. Instead, I did an intense arm workout tonight...

Thats all. Happy Monday

I've had the most amazing time off from work. Truly enjoyed spending everyday with Emily. It was nice to not have anywhere to be. We had a busy week, but also had time to do things that we wanted as well. I've spent a lot of time just reflecting...
Emily and I spent a few days at the beach. She really enjoyed playing in the sand, walking along the beach, and putting her feet in the ocean. We are truly blessed to get to go to the beach often, and she loves it more and more each time we visit. 
We drove home Wednesday morning when we woke up. Yes I know it's a long drive for a short trip. I just wanted to make the most of my time off from work. Wednesday and Thursday the weather was going to be bad and there's not a lot to do with a toddler when it rains at the beach. I knew I wanted to be home before the weekend so I would have a few days at home to get some things accomplished. So Wednesday we drove home and I must say Emily was perfect on the ride home. I had intentions on getting our new hardwood ordered and picked up this week while I was off but it was backordered until Friday so I'm waiting until early this week to get it. Anyway, Thursday was my birthday, so we took Sosha to be shaved. She had about 6" of hair shaved off! She looks so much better. Then we went by my Mom's work, visited then went to lunch. Jayson took us to dinner that night. 
Thursday night I decided that I would be brave and paint Emily's entire bedroom suite. It's Jayson's furniture from when he was growing up. I wanted it to be white, and it turned out great. I do not want to buy her any new furniture for a few years because she will likely mess it up; coloring on it etc. So this was a nice change, plus it lightened up the bedroom...

Also, I just got back from a nice run around the neighborhood. I ran 2 laps. Not a huge run, but they say any   workout is better than none at all. Progress. I have to hold myself accountable, no one else is going to. Healthy breakfast / lunch is packed for work tomorrow. I'm excited. I get so discouraged when I do not make my lunch and I have to eat junk. That's all. :) Hope everyone has a good week.
