My Daybook~ Back to Normal

For Today...January 24, 2010

Outside my's cool. The wind was blowing so hard today that the Hulk was yelling at it to stop. The weather this past week has been so nice, I hope it stays this way. The kids love playing outside.

I am listening to...complete silence. The little ones are sleeping and Lance and Squirt haven't returned from CCE yet. I usually listen to music while at the computer, but I need some time just to think without any distractions. Maybe I should do this more often.

I am plants and a green shirt.

I am thankful wonderful family who celebrated Lance's birthday with us on Saturday at Da Marco's. We had an incredible meal and great company. Thanks, Daddy!

I am reading...the same stuff as last week. I have come up with a list of possible summer destinations though.

To be fit and happy...My routine is pretty set at the gym. I have my favorite classes, so maybe soon I'll look exactly the way I want. Or have the energy I want. Thus far, working out five days a week has done neither for me. I have decided that I am getting a flat stomach before I turn 40. How vain is that? To reach that goal, I am doing 100 sit ups every day until my birthday. We'll see if I can finally get the abs I want. If I can't do it in six months, then I give up.

From the planned and not very excited about it all. I had planned to make three new recipes this week, then totally forgot about that plan when I went to the grocery store. The goal is to eat at home ALL. WEEK. LONG.

I am thinking...that I wish little things didn't bother me so much. It is so hard to let things just go. Days, Weeks, Years later, things will still bother me. Such wasted energy.

I am creating...plans for my little ones and Super Saints plans for the next couple of months. I am energized.

I am so excited about...the fact that I am FINALLY going to see the Old 97s in concert. Three different times, I have been screwed over...The first time, I got too drunk to make it to the concert, (my fault and many years ago). The second time, I had just given birth two weeks previously and my husband wouldn't go. (It was my birthday, and I was so pissed at him esp when he suggested a movie instead. Since it was my birthday, I stayed home and sulked.) The last time, I forgot to buy tickets and the show was sold out. But this time, I am getting tickets and I don't care what happens or who goes with me, I will be there.

To show my age...this week I heard two Judas Priest songs and was so excited. Goose held his hands over his ears and couldn't understand why I was so happy. I just turned it up louder. I love XM radio! I can go from Judas Priest to the Thermals.

To live the liturgy...still trying to make it to daily mass without my kids ruining the experience for me. They love seeing our priests, it's just getting inside the church that is the problem.

I am praying for...more vocations.

On keeping home...Tomorrow is going to be cleaning day since I blew off cleaning this weekend. At least, all the laundry is done.

One of my favorite things...watching the boys play together.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
  • super saints
  • the park
  • lecture series at church
  • watching out for the new driver in our neighborhood. Only three more days!!!
  • getting together with the twins
  • relaxing, I hope

A picture thought I'm sharing...
