Lots of Stuff

Can you see how tired I look in this picture? Yup, that's how I was in Miami. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's what I look like right now (probably worse). No amount of make-up can cover up how tired I look or feel. This weekend that just past wasn't easy either (when it comes to sleep, anyway). This past week, I've spent it coughing at night.

Let's see what else is going on with me. Well, Dan got a new job! He started this past week. So far, he's been working late hours (he's still not home and it's 8:15 pm on a Friday). You know how it goes. When you're the new guy you have to put in the time. Besides being the new guy, they are short one other person, which adds to the stress. I'm sure things will calm down soon enough.

There's really so much going through my mind right now that I can't even begin to blog about it. I actually went back to the gym this week. I've only gone once before. The baby is 7 1/2 months old and I need to get back to somewhat of my past life. I'm not expecting things to go back to the way they use to, but I need some me time. With Dan working three jobs, it's difficult to find that time.

I'm probably one of the few people that enjoys exercising. I love the "zone" you get into right about 10 minutes into your workout. The feeling of my heart pumping really hard gets me going. I began the workout feeling sleepy and ended it feeling invigorated. I need this aspect of my life back.

So, I made a deal with Dan. I told him that on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays I will be working out. If I don't set this time aside for myself, then it will never happen. You know how it is, something always comes up. Let's see how this turns out!

Do you see this little cutie? This is Will's first time at a park! He had so much fun (we probably had more watching him). I can't wait until it's consistently nice so that we could take him to the park more often. He had a big gorgeous smile on that swing. He also had fun looking at the other kids around him. It was great!

You know who had loads of fun with him? Dad. He wouldn't stop taking pictures of Will and of walking him all around the playground showing him around. I think if Dan would have been able to. He would have gotten on the slide with him.

Btw, this post has been ongoing for days. I started it off on Monday and I'm finally done with it at 12:45 am on Saturday. Yeah, talk about my limited time. I could barely manage reading other blogs. Well, until next time!
