Well this week was pretty good I kept busy with my Pure Barre workouts. I am doing last 90 days program and so far I am having great momentum.

Tuesday and Wednesday I was able to have coffee with friends. Tuesday Barbara and Sheri and I went after our barre class and had a nice time catching up.

Brandon had football practice in La Quinta Tuesday and Wednesday night. Wednesday I got an long overdue facial by Courtney it was great a wonderful belated birthday treat.

My hip has been incredibly tight and my lower back on left side as well as rotator on right side. So I went in for a painful massage. It was excruciating but it did loosen up my body and I felt so much better after.

But geez I will be happy when I can just have relaxing massages again every time I’ve gone since my injury I have to get the deep tissue and sports massages and they hurt.

Brandon has his service hours after school Thursday night. I had really good workouts Thursday and Friday.

I finished another book Demi Moore’s autobiography was good. Now on to another new book. Friday Brandon got our early so we went to see the Joker movie.

We had a night in family nights are always great! Saturday we got up had breakfast got Brandon ready for football game.

His friend gave him a ride to the game which I’m so glad because Savannah ended up puking and being stomach sick all weekend poor thing.

Today we took it easy and Savannah was feeling good no puking that is until bedtime. So I guess I’m keeping her home tomorrow and we will just see how she’s doing tomorrow night.

She’s going to miss her first day of yoga 🧘‍♀️ which is a bummer and Tuesday is picture day so hoping she’s better by then.

Brandon will have his tutoring after school tomorrow he’s been keeping steady at A honors and hopefully he will this whole year or get gold leaf. He’s doing so great in school and football. I’m so proud of him.

His birthday is this month can’t believe he will be 13 years old. He’s such an amazing brother to Savannah too.

Savannah adores him and they have such a sweet relationship. The weather is still up and down it hasn’t completely cooled down yet.

I will have to make sure Brandon and I don’t get sick this week and that I get Savannah healthy and back to school by Tuesday.

I have two upcoming doctor appointments both next week I. The 16th and 18th. My Aunt is not doing good which worries me. Guess I will find out more soon. My uncle is in the hospital so I really am sad thinking of them not doing well.

Also it’s hard on my mom to see her siblings not doing well she loves them so much. I’ve started to put out fall decor. This week woke up and had all our holiday boxes toppled over in garage and unfortunately some fall and Xmas decor items had broken.

I need to still get a few errands done so either I will do at the end of the day when Savannah is up to it or on Tuesday.

I’ve been up since midnight checked on Savannah and couldn’t get back to sleep. I will be feeling it today.

I am so blessed to be a mom I’ve seen friends struggle to have children gone through IVF and much more. I was lucky enough to get both a boy and a girl 9 years apart and they are the best.

I am ready to start traveling with them everywhere. I love to travel and before becoming a mom I went to Europe and South America and went to NYC a lot. I am very ready to return to a life of travel.

It will be special to have my children with me. Also overdue for some adult vacations with my hubby.

He’s back in June lake again until the 15th. Much colder there than here and he’s still working on getting the burned units rented and the other cabins as well.

Brandon has his school dance this week. We also have three nights of football practice and another away game this weekend.

Savannah has Yoga which she will miss today since she’s sick Cooking, Tuesday and Music and Movement on Thursday and Soccer on Friday.

I have found that the more I remove toxic people from my everyday life. The happier I am I am blessed to have such good positive people in my life.

Kids and I our sad that it’s now getting too cold to go in pool. We’d love to be able to swim in it year round.

I’m glad my kids get to see my parents all the time and that I see them all the time. It’s a sad thing when people don’t get to see their grandkids or kids.

Tomorrow isn’t promised and you think you never want to wish you had made amends and shown love while someone was here.

Regret is not something you want to have in life. Some things you can never get back. Some people want things or people to be so perfect that they simply miss out they don’t marry or don’t have kids because they waited too long. That’s different from those who just know parenting is not for them.

The ones that wanted to and stayed with people who didn’t want the same or did things that hindered them becoming a parent. Its sad

Had I waited until life was perfect I wouldn’t be a mother of two amazing children. I’ve never worked so hard as I have being a parent. That’s why no matter how much money I could be making outside my home. I am happy and fulfilled with doing the most rewarding job.

That unfortunately goes by so fast I feel like at warp speed sometimes. I still reach goals and also have lots of goals for myself as well but I prioritize my time with my children.

I am finding a balance and as they are growing up more each year it allows me to pursue my personal goals. I couldn’t imagine being happy even if I was the wealthiest most successful person. If I wasn’t a mother I wouldn’t want to be at the age when you lose your parents and have no more family. No children no grandchildren I couldn’t even imagine it would seem so lonely.

But I’m someone who always wanted marriage and kids and likes to stay close with family and friends. Not everyone has the same needs.

I am amazed and thrilled with each milestone my kids have just seeing them enjoy activities and sports. Go to school dances are so great.

My son will be driving in three years which seems crazy boy time flies. He is already a great cook not only can prepare food for him but could easily make us breakfast lunch or dinner for our family.

He has a great work ethic already which I love. Savannah is very independent and wants to do things on her own and she is always so proud of herself as am I when she completes a task or achieves a goal.

Both my kids have a ton of friends and are well liked and are good people who include everyone. They both know how to make me smile 😊 almost in an instant even when I’m sad or having a bad day.

I am feeling sleepy but of course it’s almost time for sunrise and getting kids ready for their day.

I am ready for my day thinking I need to make some tea. Have a great day !
