Tomorrow is a new day

This day did not go as planned, and put me in a bad mood.

I was PLANNING on getting up early to go for a 3 mile run. Instead, I woke up in pain. My right calf muscle is in a knot! It hurts to walk down the stairs, I basically have to hobble down them haha. Damn gastrocnemius

I know why. I have been working my legs really hard for weeks, and the stretching has been minimal.

note to self: stretch!!!! It’s important! (annie and I have been talking that we need to add pilates or yoga to our workouts each week)

I also slept horrible and lead to neck pain. So I can’t look to the left. seriously, I’m falling apart!

~~~~~~~~~~

OK. OK. on to the good stuff! enough complaining!!

My brother and dad worked all day getting the trim, chair rail, and floor boards put in the bathroom. It looks amazing!

I also had a dinner of ice cream.

It was perfect. I am now going to get a good night sleep. Run tomorrow before work. And go to work in a MUCH better mood, because tomorrow is going to be a good day!

Question for you:
what do you do when your day isn’t going as planned?

How do you turn your frown upside down? haha

Sunny Sunday

I hope everyone had a grea Sunday! Andrew and I started out our day with pancakes and church.

We then headed to the pool with my mom and nephew. And Andrew went down the big slide for the first time!

First, I went down

Then Andrew!

We had to head home, so I could paint. The bathroom better be ready soon-I’m running out of paint! haha

After, a family dinner at my parents house, it finally rained! The weather here has been over 100 each day!

My flowers show just how dry and hot it has been!

Andrew and I found this funny video right before bed, and of course wordpress won’t let me attach it- but enjoy!

Question for you:

How did you spend your weekend?

Is anyone feeling tired and drained from all this heat!?!?!

The secrets out! (and one to come)

Well now its official!

My lovely NICU friends (or I should say some of them) have found my blog!

I was wondering how long it would take for them to find it, since we happen to be PRETTY big on blogs there in the NICU, especially Spring Garden. (for my non-NICU friends, this is the section I work in. There is also water garden, summer garden, and A, B,C, and D room. Its a big place! We can hold around 80ish babies!)

So welcome! I hope you guys leave comments (NICE comments- Anna haha)

~~~~~~

I also have another surprise. This one will be a bit of a shocker for my family (not you guys though)

REWIND………………………………..

Ian (my son’s dad) and I, who have been talking for several months, finally got together this past Tuesday. I was EXTREMELY nervous about this, as it was the first time in person talking.

What if it was akward?

What if we didn’t have to same chemistry? (yes girly. I know)

What if I realized this wasn’t what I wanted, or vise versa?

Well. there were lots of unknowns.

But it went perfect.

We sat in the kitchen and talked for three hours. Just catching up on life and of course, my house! 🙂

(yep. I got a guy to talk for three hours! haha. )

And he was actually engaged in the conversation. This might not seeem like a big deal to some, but this was not the Ian I knew before. 

We eventually held hands, while watching Pawn Stars. (anyone seen this?? not me. it was actually interesting)

(AND we are teenagers again, watching Tv while holding hands haha. but it was perfect. I said that already…oops)

I left at 1230, because I worked on Wednesday (had to get up at 545! EEK! )

Before getting in my car, he did give me a kiss 🙂 and a text that followed approximately 2 minutes after I was on the road saying he was glad we were able to get together. And that he hoped we could get together soon 🙂

So fast forward through the rest of the week…..we have talked each day And have plans to get together on Sunday.

Now that everyone is caught up.

My parents are not a big fan of Ian. I can say this because, well. Everyone knows it. They don’t hide it. When we first met at 18, we were both really immature. We also had a baby at 19….you can see why they werent thrilled.

So tomorrow, I have to tell them that we are meeting (they didn’t know about tuesday). I know this is not going to go well.

And unfortuantly, my biggest fear, is that a lot of people going to be pissed.

this is my life we are talking about! My happiness! But Im the middle child. and try to make everyone happy haha

As my good friend Sarah says “HERE GOES NOTHING!”

~~~~~~~~~

I feel that everyone is caught up with that, so lets get on to the house!!!!!!

Tonight, my brother and I went and bought trim!!!

saturday night…… and Im hanging with my bro at home depot haha

Im not going to miss dropping $$$ at this place! At least Im not at this phase anymore!

We had a lot of good laughs, especially when the 12 foot wouldnt fit……except out the window!

“this is how we roll”

AND TOMORROW! I get to paint it all! WAHOO!!! Then off to the pool with Ian.

Question for you:

Have you ever done something that you knew someone was going to hate, but knew it was right for you?

Or have to tell someone something you didnt want to?

Are you a middle child?
