Monday was a busy morning! My sister had to get my oldest niece up and ready for kindergarten, get my nephew and baby niece up and ready to take the oldest to kindergarten, get herself ready to take them all out, feed everyone breakfast, and get going so the oldest wasn’t late to school. I wasn’t awake during all of this because waking up at 6am is definitely still a challenge that I have not mastered yet, but I did wake up to hear my sister yelling at Bella (her white fluffy puppy) to get back in the house.
Bella is used to being locked in her kennel whenever my sister goes somewhere because she can’t be trusted to not potty in the house, but because TJ and I were home she left Bella out. My sister only usually does this when Bella gets to go bye-bye with them, so of course the second she opened the door to the garage, Bella went sprinting out there and right into the van. I had to go grab her so she could get out the door. Silly Bella!
While my sister was out dropping my niece off, TJ and I got ready because we were going to the gym with her when she got back. So after she got back she loaded the younger two kiddos into the jogging stroller and off we went to the gym.
She dropped off the two kiddos at the children’s area so we could workout without having to worry about them. The workout was really nice, but hard. You see, I haven’t really done anything even remotely similar to working out since I was in high school, and I graduated in 2007. It was good for me though because I definitely need to get back into shape! I’ve been eating way too many yummy things lately :P
After the workout we picked the kids up and took them over to the park so they could run around and get some fresh air before we walked back home.
After we left the park we hung out at home until it was time to pick up my niece, and then we all went out to Wal*Mart. Woo… super fun outing! Yeah, not really… but TJ and I did get some stuff for working out. I got some awesome 3lb weights (because I’m Super Weakling!), and TJ found a set of 40lb weights. TJ has until the 26th to get ready for his test for the Tucson PD, so since he has to majorly get working out, I might as well too :P
After we got back from home, the kids wanted to go play outside, so I got dinner rolling.
After dinner was made, and we sat down to eat, I insisted on a family picture! Remember guys
After dinner it was time to get the kiddos into their pajamas and ready for bed!
Once pajamas were on and playtime was *mostly* over, it was finally time for bedtime stories and goodnight kisses.
After the kiddos were down I finally got a chance to work on my blog entry… or so I thought anyways!!!
Today was a good day. But I learned a very important lesson. I REALLY need to workout more!!!
