Adulting….UGH!

Today is one of those days I have to adult and I really don’t want to.
I am a parent, maid, driver, chef. I am a million things every day. My kid has been slightly ill for the past couple of days. For us that doesn’t mean much. She is the best sick kid on the planet due to always being sick. But today is Valentines Day. A day we, Travis and I, don’t really celebrate. He’s usually at work. He did in fact leave for work this morning and I’m on this reactive food thing so we didn’t do anything yesterday except hang out. Today at Delylahs school they are having a party and she begged me to attend.
This means I must adult…
I am not a volunteer mom. You won’t see me at school handing things out, helping in the class or playing games with kids. Nope. I’m not that kind of mom. Kids are ass holes and why would I torture myself. Not only are kids ass holes but most of their parents are as well. Where do you think the kids get it from? Does this mean I’m going to brush my hair to show up at the Valentines party today? Probably not. I might change out of my yoga clothes though…Might.
For me, the adulting part is showing up when I don’t want to. Being around a bunch of fake people with their fake smiles and alter ego’s isn’t how I want to spend my lunch time. But for my kid, I will do anything. Like stay up all night every night because she’s sick and I’m the adult.
Not only do I get to be an adult at school today, I get to pay bills and be an adult at home. I have some finances to take care of and phone calls to make. It will probably take over an hour of my time just making the damn phone calls straightening things out. I should skip yoga so I can get it all done before going to school but I’m not going to do that. Yoga is for me. One could argue paying the bills is for me too but I could go without some of what those bills pay for….And that’s the truth.
I had my very adult breakfast of flaxseed with pumpkin seeds, raisins, blueberries and coconut milk. Drank over 25 ounces of water already with lemon and taken an array of vitamins and probiotics. I’d say my day of adulting has started off well.
What kind of adulting are you doing today?

We Are Used To It….

We are so used to Delylah being sick we don’t think much of it anymore. A fever here, a cough there. Green boogers and the Neti Pot always sitting out. Tissues galore. We had to get out and get some groceries yesterday and happened to run into her teacher. Who was also out of school sick. She wondered why Delylah missed so much school this year already. I had Delylah in the cart with a blanket, half covered with groceries spreading her germs to our family like it was no big deal. Turns out, the teacher is from the same area as us. Southern California. And these Texas allergies kick her ass too. But we explained that allergies kicked Delylah’s ass in California too and missing school was and is Delylah’s M.O.
Delylah gets to stay home one more day and if all goes well, she will be back to school tomorrow in time for the Valentines Party. She doesn’t seem that excited for it and is used to missing the good stuff at school from being sick. She missed the Christmas celebration because she had the flu and it was really no sweat off her back.
Lucky for me Travis is still home so I will be heading off to yoga today. Getting in some breath work and me time.
Since Delylah is home today I am going to take advantage and do a little something from my 30 Days Of Small Challenges List. I have already accomplished a lot from this list. At least 13 of them. Today I will paint a canvas with Delylah.
Happy Tuesday My Friends

Monday Brings Gifts

After such a fantastic weekend we were not ready for the sounds of our alarms this morning.
5 am came quickly and the bus seemed to come even quicker. With one kid in great spirits and only slightly snotty, he was headed off to school to conquer the day. The other one didn’t even make it to the bus. The crying, green boogers, not feeling good and really playing into the sickness had us parents fall for it every step of the way. She is on the couch, staying hydrated and watching movies all day. Her temperature is rising and I’m glad we fell for her Monday morning shenanigans of not wanting to go to school. She would have just ended up even more sick.
My dad has left us after being here for over a month. Having him here and getting up with us every morning to see the kids off was magnificent. The kids really enjoyed having him here, almost as much as me.

We spent the weekend with friends and attended another Monster Jam! You just can’t get enough exhaust smell and burning of the eyes in at one attendance. You really need to go as much as you can.

I can only hope this week doesn’t bring full-blown sickness to my house. I know how it usually goes with Delylah. Once she starts, she can’t stop. We don’t really have a busy week but we do have a swim meet for Levi this weekend.
Monday has brought sickness, relaxation, grocery shopping and cleaning to my house. I don’t think it’s all that bad.
What has Monday brought you?

I Didn’t Wake Up Thankful, But I AM Thankful….

It was a restless night. Tossing and turning. My body feeling blistered on the inside making it hard to sleep. Waking and checking the clock hoping to be closer to the actual time I needed to be up but to no avail. After finally having enough, I decided to just get up. A headache. I finally get up and I have a headache. It’s all OK. It’s not the end of the world. After all, today is Thankful Thursday.
After such a bad night of sleeping and waking up just not feeling myself, I lay on the couch and debated with myself as to whether or not I should attend yoga. I’m going to yoga. What better way to lift myself up. I’m thankful I made the decision to go. I’m thankful I can go. I’m thankful I have a place to go do it and feel lifted.
My kids had some shit attitudes this morning. This might not sound like something to be thankful for but hey, you never know what shit brings. I slept shitty, woke up shitty but I’m turning that around with some yoga and meditation. I’m thankful my kids had shit attitudes. I can take away their video games after school and we can do something together instead of them focusing on electronics or you tube.
I begin a 20 day reactive food testing today. It is the beginning of taking my body back, resetting my Thyroid and finally eating more than just spinach. I am thankful for the knowledge I was given to be able to do such a thing.
Travis came home from work yesterday and we re arranged our room. Something I have wanted to do for months. It feels better. There is more room and we both like it more. I am so thankful that he comes home from work and just goes right away to helping me do whatever it is I need.
Maybe your day didn’t start how you planned and things aren’t really going your way in life right now. But look around. What are you thankful for today?
