Wednesday morning we all were up early. Unfortunately realized Brandon didn’t get items in car for trip night before like he said and also didn’t get a few chores done.
So not the way to start a morning out. But we took him to school Had him kiss and hug Savannah and I as he was leaving on his science camp trip after mass.
Savannah was sad knowing she wouldn’t see her big brother after school. But I told her it would be a girls night super fun!
My friend messaged us before I dropped kids that she had to reschedule our breakfast. Since I woke up with a sore throat I was tempted to skip my Pure Barre.
But I didn’t I got Savannah dropped off at school without any tears. Went home had some honey for my throat and two warmed up tortillas.
I cleaned dishes and kitchen and headed to Pure Barre. Glad I went it was a great class. Also got to visit with Sheri and Barbara before class.
Sheri sat with us and showed us all her amazing pictures from Ireland & Scotland trip.
Got my coffee after class and took it easy at home couldn’t sleep because one of our neighbors is doing major construction so it’s very loud. Drink fluids and had soup for lunch.
Picked up my Savannah and her request was ice cream so I actually got us Outback Curbside to go she had chicken fingers fries and soda and I had chicken in the Barbie fries and soda we ordered the Chocolate Thunder from down under for dessert. She had the oversized scoop of ice cream whip cream and chocolate sauce and I had the brownie with a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
We watched Savannah’s DisneyJr shows. Gave her a bubble bath let her play with her mermaids in the bath.
Read three books and sang songs it was a fun girls night. I need to order her school pictures in morning.
I’m hoping my throat is better by morning. I’m excited I get my hair done.My Birthday is Saturday we get my husband home tomorrow and Brandon home Saturday. Then we leave early Tuesday morning for our trip to Indiana & Chicago.
I am gonna miss the kids like crazy the original plan for the trip was as a adult trip but I really wish we planned it with our two youngest kids. Brandon has been to Chicago but never to Indiana.
He did that trip with me when he was three going on four so considering he’s turning 12 next month it’s been awhile. Savannah would have really enjoyed it too.
We will enjoy adult time see family and explore the areas. Lots of trips to come I. The future so the kids can look forward to our summer Hawaii trip.
Plan a great spring break trip maybe a Disney Cruise or Beaches vacation trip. Plus my 40th Birthday next Fall we will plan something special.
My family back east would love to see me and meet Jeff and our kids I have family in practically every state and over 30 first cousins. My dad grew up with 11 kids in his family and most of them have had 3 or more children and most of my cousins have had multiple kiddos.
So I’ve has my real estate license 21 years now so it’s about time I get my brokers license. Also now that my husband is licensed it makes since since he has to wait another year to get his brokers license and we already have one real estate office we own in June Lake along with rentals and motel etc.
We will be able to open office here in Desert as well . My parents are now set on retiring and closed there office and are working out of home office until they fully retire my mom has been doing real estate my whole life my dad switched careers and joined her in 1989. They’ve been very successful and have loved their work.
I’ve enjoyed just starting to get back into my writing and I haven’t been at it long at all but will keep at it. I also hope I get my schedule to where u can read a lot too. Not just the precious books I read with my three year old but some great adult reading I so enjoy a good book.
My goal with Brandon this year is to stay back and let him handle school organization, homework and not police his grades when it comes to checking gradelink it will be a couple times a week and I won’t remind him about stuff.
He needs to learn to be organized and set goals good study habits. I won’t contact any teachers if he’s forgotten work turns in late or wants a retest. He will have to take initiative.
With Savannah leaving earlier at drop off. Weaning her out of my bed and start falling asleep in her bed each night. Getting her out of pull ups which is now only at bedtime. Eventually getting rid of her high chair.
Brandon has a full schedule with football practice two hours a day three nights a week and 3-4 hours of practice and games every Saturday. He is very popular so social life and then 7th grade with lots of homework at a private school where he’s learning on a high school level.
My weight has been steady between 134-136 but that’s heavy for me when we got engaged the heaviest I had weighed at my heaviest was 118. Now I don’t expect to get under 120 mainly because I have nearly 46% muscle mass now so it’s not about the number.
I do have some stubborn belly fat to lose and with Pure Barre, Peloton and healthy meals I will get there.
I’m thinking I can get my body fat which is at 28% down to 25% and that should be a nice healthy weight for me between 120-128.
I still have a fit in 42 pass to use. So that will help too. My husband is going to sign up for more swim events so it will be great to watch him train and get ready again he’s at his happiest when he’s swimming and biking everyday.
He’s a great swimmer and was a awesome coach for many years he had his oldest girls swimming at a very young age competitively and he got Brandon swimming great too and Savannah is a little fish or as she likes to say mermaid.
Jeff and I both grew up swimming and he started coaching from a young age.
The English Chanel is one of the Triple crown swims my husband wants to complete. I think it time for him to train hard again and work on completing his goal.
I can’t believe how time flies and the kids grow into adults my oldest nephew turns 25 , then we have 21, 19,17, and my nieces will be 16.
My husbands oldest girls are seriously grown now one married with a baby on the way his other about to get married and another in college. He’s so proud of his girls they are all beautiful intelligent women and being successful as well.
No matter how much time or distance is parents always have such a strong love and bond and we just have to let our children grow up knowing they might stumble but they will get back up again.
I love all the kids so much all my nephews and nieces I’m so proud of them. Love all of our kids as well even though we may not get to see the oldest ones our love in strong and unwavering.
I’m so happy that Brandon abs Savannah are so close their hearts are wide open and vast and they love so freely.
Halloween 🎃 is getting closer and I can’t wait to pick out costumes as a family do a Disney trip go to the pumpkin patch and have a lot of fun fall memories in general.
I hope everyone is having a great week! 😘🏡🌻💤
