Monday RoundupΒ 

So I was so tired this morning but I got our daughter ready and off to school. I did not make it to Pure Barre. I did get coffee and breakfast with my hubby at Starbucks. 

I got laundry and dishes done and tidied up the house and tried to rest. Took our dog charly to the groomers. 

My Aunt was in a horrible car crash this past weekend but thankfully she’s ok but her car is totaled. I am just happy she was lucky and not only survived a collision with a big rig truck but did not brake a bone. 

I was also worried to hear my children’s sitter was in the ER today but thankfully all is well she’s on the mend. I just hate anyone going through so much pain and discomfort.

My husband bought our new living room set it will arrive on Wednesday. Our son had another game today he has only one more game left this Thursday. 

I picked up our little girl and I made a delicious dinner everyone loved πŸ˜€πŸ™ We watched Sleeping Beauty again before she went to bed. 

Our son Brandon had a ton of homework he was working on tonight but I let him have some popcorn and candy during study time considering he won’t be able to have either for two years as of this coming Friday when he gets his braces. 

I have not been sleeping well at all and I really need to get myself to sleep 😴 Hoping to do Pure Barre tomorrow need to get a hair appointment and make dental appointments for me and my daughter. 

I hope everyone had a great Monday πŸ™πŸŒ»πŸπŸ‘πŸ˜Š

I was tired this morning when I got up but had good energy today and enjoyed my day. My little girl dressed up as an animal doctor for school today. I went to my Pure Barre class it was a great class. Afterwards I went home and my husband and I went for coffee.

It was a beautiful day today I am loving that it’s getting cooler outside. We went to Tommy Bahamas for lunch then my hubby got some great clothes from the store after lunch.

We stopped by my favorite store The White House Black Market and saw some great clothes so decided I would go back later to try on. We headed to our sons parent teacher  conference and we are so proud of his grades and how well he is doing at his new school.

afterwards we headed home I needed to shower and head back to the school to pick Brandon up. My husband Jeff had to get ready to head out of town for the weekend to do a real estate crash course. I miss him already but I’m glad he’s getting it done.

When I picked up Brandon from school I gave him his phone he was πŸ˜€ happy. We went to my WHBM since my husband gave me the okay to get myself some clothes. It was nice getting some great fall items. The sale helped always nice to save money.

Headed home to drop items off and then headed to my daughters school to pick her up. We got home my son was doing his chores me finishing my housework and then I made us a pizza for dinner and we watched movies.

I am looking forward to our Paint El Paseo Pink walk that we are participating in tomorrow. I need to get some good sleep hope everyone has a goodnight 😴 πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸŒ»πŸπŸ‘πŸΏπŸ•

So today I was not feeling great in am and was tired. I cancelled my Pure Empower class so we could pick Brandon up from school and take to a morning orthodontist appointment. 

It was our first visit and my son got X-rays impressions and will be getting his braces on next Friday. I am so excited for him I know he’s bummed about no candy and popcorn and some other items during the two year stint. But I am letting him have them this week and weekend as a last hoorah. 

His progress report came out today and he’s doing πŸ‘πŸ» great. We got him back to school then had some lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. Lunch was great I had the tortilla soup and Mediterranean salad lunch combo. 

Afterwards I went to get items at Target then got my gas tank filled up and picked up my sons uniform from dry cleaners and stopped at Ralph’s for some groceries. 

I got home got everything unloaded and put away and then headed out to pick up my little girl. We hung out had a snack and read some books. 

Once my husband and son got home I started dinner and we had a nice evening in. I got laundry and dishes going and got items ordered for my daughters school fundraiser. Signed my sons progress report and chose a conference time for this Friday at 1:30pm. 

Watching some shows and relaxing now before I head to bed for a good nights rest. 

Hope everyone had a great dayπŸ‘πŸ™πŸŒ»πŸŽƒπŸπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ­οΈ

Yesterday I took my little girl to Disneyland my son had school so I took her for a girls day. My little girl had me up slot of the night she slept pretty good but kept kicking and putting her head in my back and neck lol. So I was tired but excited for our day. 

It was super windy on our drive there but we were both so excited to be there. It was pretty crowded we were able to have a great day. There was a fire just outside of Anaheim and it made the air quality poor abs it was hazy outside. 

We took a picture in front of large Mickey πŸŽƒ we went on The Jungle Cruise, we went to get a Mickey Mouse pretzel . We also went and saw Elana of Avalor, Cinderella, and Snow White. 

We went on King Arthur’s Carousel then we  stopped to have more snacks and we thought the parade was starting but it wasn’t so we went through some shops . Then we went on the train took it to Main Street. 

We were able to get a good seat for parade and enjoyed it before heading home 🏑. My daughter passed out in the car so I just got myself a fast food combo to eat before getting on the road. I had no clue what I was in for. 

The Drive was horrible from 6pm-8pm it was a parking lot fastest we were going was 8 miles an hour.  Finally once we passed Ontario airport we were able to go 60 mph I didn’t get home until 9:40pm. Was beyond exhausted and needed to go straight to bed once I tucked my daughter in. 

Weekend Ready Friday October 6, 2017

So yesterday my little one took a tumble at school and I picked her up early but she was just fine and today you can’t even tell she bumped her head no mark at all. 

My son did more voulenteer time at the church last night with the kids youth group. We took our little one out for ice cream before we picked up our son. His grades are  pretty good he’s got a 3.19 right now and 12 more assignments still to be graded before his first quarter grades are out next Friday. 

We are doing the relay 4 life walk tomorrow and need to have him get all his posters done. Today I have Pure Barre classic. Kids are at school my little one said goodbye to me and was brace big girl this morning. My son gets out of school at noon today so we will take him to lunch. 

I need to go to our old church and get my sons records for his new school and church. Looking forward to having a date night with my husband tonight and then we’ve got a party to go to tomorrow night. 

So we had a great dinner at Las Casuelas and then went to the movies. Blade Runner was not my favorite it was very long and boring in my opinion but my husband enjoyed it. 

Proud of my kids and love my family so much. 

Have a great weekend everyone πŸŒ»πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸπŸ€—πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Today started very fast paced. My little girl came and slept with me around midnight last night so me and her slept in. My son came in at 7:10 and that when we usually leave. 

I was able to get little one fed and me dressed and all our items in car and my son to chop by 7:35am of course I was desperately needing to use the restroom once in the car and we got all the red lights. 

When we made it home got my daughter our raced us to the rest room. Then got her dressed and did her hair and headed to her school. She said goodbye and wa easy to drop off today thank goodness. 

I headed straight to Pure Empower got there with time to spare and enjoyed the class. Afterwards went home got laundry and dishes started took a bath shaved did my hair and then took off for Target.

I needed a coffee so got that first since they conveniently have a Starbucks in target. Then I was able to pretty successfully feel nearly all items on my list. 

I rushed home got everything put away had a quick lunch while watching “This is Us” since I did not watch it last night. I put another load of laundry on before I left. 

Now at school waiting for my son to get out of school. He has anothe football game today scratch that just found out it’s canceled other team didn’t have enough players today. Bummer πŸ˜‚

Well we picked up dry cleaning and got the car gased up my parents coming by to see Brandon before I pick up Savannah. Have school pictures for them. 

Well more time for him to study for tests he has tomorrow and get homework done and maybe the three of us can watch a movie together tonight at home 🏑 

Hope everyone is having a great day talk to you soon πŸ‘πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸβ­οΈ

Woke up very tired our little one came in our bed before 10pm then I moved to the couch around midnight and it took me awhile to fall asleep. My husband had to leave today to work for a couple of days so he got our son off to school I took our daughter .

I started some laundry and dishes and then headed to Pure Barre Classic. I was sore and had a migraine but so glad I went. My heart has been heavy ever since hearing of the horrible mass shooting in Las Vegas. I do take comfort in the kindness people showed each other the selfless acts of kindness to save others.

I will never understand such acts of evil no matter our differences we are all one race the human race and I hope Β we can come together in unity and that we can have less violence and more love and acceptance and peace and respect.

My son failed to walk our dog this morning or open doggy door so I got to clean up a huge mess off pee and poop before going to workout. I also noticed he did not give the dog fresh water ugh πŸ˜‘Β my son really needs to take more accountability for himself and his disisions how it effects everyone else not just him.

His GPA has been pretty great since he started middle school but he’s forgot assignments turned in late, talked during others presentations and been disorganized. His Spanish, and Social Studies grades are C’s and he needs to put in more effort.

He went to The Edge youth group at our church tonight and really enjoyed that. He had his first football game yesterday and has another one tomorrow. I have a ton to get done tomorrow so I M hoping for a good nights sleep.

I need to start giving my son more space to thrive on his own or to sink if he doesn’t work hard. This is new territory for him with so many classes a new school new football team new friends etc.

I’m almost a full 6 months in to doing Pure Barre and I appreciate that a lot of the women that take class with me say they can see a difference in my body and that I’ve come a long way. I don’t see as much but I am still sad becuase I miss a body I may not ever fully get back a great figure they never saw. I need to be happy with my progress and still continue to work hard.

This month is another 20 in 31 challenge so I need to complete it I am about 27or 28 classes away from reaching 100 class milestone. Well I hope everyone is having a great week so far and look forward to the rest of my week.

Goodnight πŸ˜΄Β πŸ‘πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸ

My heart is sad this morning waking up to the news of the Las Vegas mass shooting was horrible. I am happy loved ones that were attending concert as well as those that live in Las Vegas are ok.

But my heart is heavy for all those people who lost their lives and those who survived but will be haunted by this tragedy. We take so much for granted each day and these types of things just shows you to be grateful for each and every breath you take.

My children are off at school and I am heading to Pure Empower. I know I will be praying for all those families and for peace in general.

I want my kids to have a safe and peaceful world to live and grow and flourish in. I don’t sleep well typically if I have stress or have watched stuff like this on news I try to avoid the news just because the negativity really is too much for me to take.

I am hoping getting a good workout in will boost my mood. Have a great Monday everyone. πŸπŸ™πŸ‘πŸŒ»πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

October 01, 2017

Today was a very stressful day not one of those easy Sunday’s. I didn’t get much sleep last night I woke up with my nose and theist bugging me.

My kiddos were a handful today but my son got his homework done and I hope he’s prepared for tomorrow and his week ahead. My daughter wouldn’t nap and was way cranky because of it.

I am beyond drained I took a two hour muscle soak which helped relax me but my throats and nose are still bugging me. My kids enjoyed the Chili I made for us and I gave plenty for tomorrow.

My son has his first junior high football game tomorrow it’s an away game. I hope he does well and his team brings home a win. I am bringing snacks for my daughters classroom tomorrow.

My son did his first voulenteer hours today he will be doing next two Sunday’s as well at church. We also have two runs next two Saturday’s. Possibly some at church this coming Thursday night as well.

I have Pure Empower tomorrow hope I do well even though I don’t feel 100% My floors need a deep cleaning and I need to take my car in to get repaired since someone ran into my car while I was shopping at Target last week.

I need to also make our dental appointments for me and the kids. I need to get my immune system built back up I feel run down. I don’t want to let my kids and husbands lives take over mine and make me feel bogged down and stressed.

I know as a mom I need time for me and I need to take care of me first in order to be the best wife and mother I can be. I am really hard on myself and I want to make sure I am doing better than just a good job for my kids and for my husband.

I feel so invested in them and feel so alone without a support system. I don’t want to feel that way. I guess when you live your life feeling less than it’s hard to feel stable and strong and supported.

I want to see my kids blossom and I can’t make them have the Drive the maturity organization or cleanliness or work ethic that you have and or want for them.

I need strength to find balance in my life and love everyone for who they are and not worry about what ifs as much. I had only myself to rely on for most of my childhood and majority of my 38 years.

So I think my son sees me caring and trying to help and bring strict as intrusive. I would have given anything for my parents to care as much about my education and happiness as I care for his and his sisters.

I don’t want to hover I want to find balance. My son is incredibly intelligent and has so much going for him and he doesn’t see all the potential I see in him. He has big dreams and he by all means can achieve them all but it takes hard work and I am trying to push him to do the hard work to achieve those goals and dreams.

I have strength because I had to be self reliant but that’s also wear u always struggle to feel good enough. Why wasn’t I enough for them to be there for me. Why am I a person people find unworthy of their time love nurturing.

When you have never had someone have your back no matter what it makes you feel on the defensive and hurt much easier in relationships.

My job is to make sure my kids feel safe secure loved and backed up always. I need a safe haven I need to have a protector and that’s why I pray my faith will see me through all life’s problems and obstacles.

I want to grow and flourish and I want that for my kids I never want to let my light go dark or theirs. I feel like my bright light has definitely dimmed and it’s time to let it shine again. I am working on building my self esteem and confidence in myself.

I am so exhausted I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and I wish you all a blessed week πŸπŸŒ»πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ˜ŠπŸ™β­οΈ
