Well I slept well last night which I really needed. Kids were good this morning did a Starbucks run got my son and I coffee me a Everything croissant and kids some cake pops.

Fed them some waffles and berries at home and took it easy. My dad came by to pick up all the donation items and gifts we got for my moms Birthday as well.

I took Brandon to church for voulenteer hours and then fed Savannah picked Brandon up. Savannah was ready for a nap so I got her down once we got home. Brandon and I watched Yes Man movie while she was napping.

When she got up we got cleaned up to head to Target to get items. My daughter really tested me with her terrible two fits. I had gone for a few items I needed and to fill up the potty prize box for her. The cart was filled with probably 10-12 items for her box.

I started off giving her a chance or two with the mild fussing. Then it was losing one item at a time as she continued her fit until she had no more items in the cart. It’s certainly a high stress situation. I hate how awful it feels to be in a crowded area with your child throwing a fit or crying.

But I will never reward such behavior no matter the age. She needs to realize it’s a privilege to be in the store and to get items and she has to earn it. I finished my shopping got us out and home for dinner. I prepared some delicious loaded baked potatoes.

My son and I loaded up on goodies but I just put a little butter on hers and gave her some fruit and cheese and mini pepperoni for her dinner. She relaxed during dinner But then she was terribly cranky afterwards.

Made for a long night but I got her bathed and her clothes laid out for tomorrow. Unfortunately when I checked on if my son had all his chores done and other things I asked him days ago when I grounded him.

He replied all done do you want me to clean the baseboards sarcastically. So I looked and his drawers were not organized, dog needed more food, his backpack was so stuffed and disorganized and he did end up getting that stuff started not Sure if it got done I will check tomorrow.

I’m bummed he never had me sign his voulenteer sheet that needs to be turned in tomorrow. Need to relax for what’s left of my night and just let it be.

Hoping for another good nights sleep tonight.I am signed up for back to back classes tomorrow morning at Pure Barre a Empower class and then a Classic.

I am working everyday to work on myself both inside and out. I am seeing lots of positive changes in my body. I do have noticeable wrinkles for the first time which bugs me so I will try some wrinkle creams and work harder on taking care of my skin.

My eating habits have been really good I am planning out weekly dinner menus I am eating lots of greens and protein and fruits. Drinking lots of water still can increase my daily intake though.

I still have a lot to improve on and learn. I strive everyday to be the best mother to my children. They are truly the greatest blessing ever. I want to get get better about not feeling completely broken down when it’s a hard day and or night with my kids.

I’m a great mom but I don’t have it all figured out. My kids are human they have attitudes and fits at time and aren’t always tidy or sweet. That’s perfectly ok I know I just need to keep loving them guiding them disciplining them and doing my best to be the best version of me that I can be so I can lead by example.

My children mean everything to me and I want to give them the best foundation to help them grow and feel safe, strong and confident enough to work hard and accomplish all their goals and achieve their dreams.

It’s also so important to me that they love each other and stay close forever. So much to get done tomorrow. My husband was trying to come today and his truck wouldn’t start. So hopefully he will make it home tomorrow.

I want to get under 130 even if I never get under 120 before I gained all my weight my heavy weight was 118 and I usually weighed 113..That was six years ago I was in my early thirties now I’m going to turn 39 this year so I know o no longer need to be a size 0 or that weight.

I’m looking forward to doing 4-6 Peloton workouts a week and get in 5-6 Pure Barre classes a week and one hike a week. I want to stick with my workout plan an healthy eating.

I want to talk to my children in the best way so they are responsible and loving and respectful people and work extremely hard in all they do in life.

I want to form new friendships because being a busy mom and in the past a single mom I let those relationships fall to the waist side. I want to work harder in all my relationships.

I want my husband to always feel loved, appreciated, supported and cared for.I want my kids to know their interests and personality is something I am interested in abs that I want to love them for who they are nor what I expect them to be as a person or in life.

I do my best to keep in touch with all family members but I can strive to do better. Unfortunately I’ve lost a lot of wonderful family members over the year and I’m hoping we don’t lose anyone else in the near future.

I want to get back in the routine once Savannah is through this terrible twos abs make sure all of us go to church each Sunday. I want her to start her Catechism young I always feel bad that Brandon’s did not start until last year. But better late than never.

I’m feeling cold tonight can’t seem to feel warm enough. It’s been two years since I finished reading multiple books. It’s on my goal list to start back reading new books again each month or every other month.

My mom seemed sad today which makes me feel sad as it’s her Birthday she said she greatly appreciated and loved gifts from us and pictures I have her if Savannah. I think life is stressing her out.

Well I need to get myself to sleep. 🦄💤🏡🙏😊🎂🐶
