There's no excuse for Brian being a slob...he's 48 years old for crying out loud. The argument I'm always having with him, is how are the boys going to take this seriously, if you don't. After 20 years, you'd think I'd deal with it better. The truth is, I'm gotten more particular about having a clean home in recent years. It makes me feel good. Nothing makes me feel better than seeing Brian (I can't even say the boys since they've done it so few times) really pitch in (without being asked...or as he says, told...) In fact, Brian knows it's the easiest way into my pants. If it's been a while, he cleans. So, I'm glad they got me a card. I just wish it wasn't a card geared toward one of my biggest pet peeves.
Wow. I didn't think I'd be talking about that. Anyway, Brian made French toast for the boys as he always does on Sunday. We then we to the theater. Brian and Ryne saw Iron Man, while Cal and I saw "The Croods." What a cute movie. Afterward, we tried to go to a couple of different restaurants, but there
were lines out the door, so we ended up at a little Thai place. I do love Thai food. Spring rolls with tofu and peanut sauce is one of my absolute fave foods.
Once we got home, Brian took Ryne out to play some ball. Cal wanted to watch some race, and I got a bit of cleaning and laundry done. I also so enjoyed hearing from friends with the Happy Mother's Day wishes. I always enjoy those. I then had time to read some of the "Whole" book. It's such an inspirational book. I brought that inspiration and my thoughts from the past weekend into today ready to go. I made a smoothie this morning (banana,
flax seed, romaine lettuce, rice milk and frozen blueberries) for breakfast. For lunch, I'd thawed out some cauliflower soup that I'd made a while back, and had a spring mix w/ herb salad. I wasn't perfect all day, but I will tell you it's a far cry from the way I've been treating my body lately. Hey, also no pop.... I also made sure to be much more active at work today and around the house once we got home from swim practice. I feel really good about today, and I
feel even better about tomorrow. I look forward to eating right and seeing as much of the sun as possible tomorrow. It's actually supposed to be in the 80's. It sucks that I'm indoors most of the day, but I'll take what I can get. Cal has baseball practice tomorrow, so hopefully I can do some walking while he practices. It's been a while, since I've done any real sort of exercise.
Tomorrow is also Ryne's 12th birthday. Wow. It is crazy how quickly it goes. I still remember (so vividly) him tearing my to shreds during his birth. Haha. For a while, we weren't sure that we'd be able to carry a baby to term. I was nervous the whole pregnancy. Ryne kept me on my toes the whole time. I threw up every single day until he was born (I literally threw up while in labor with him). But once our little stinker came out, it was over. I couldn't believe that Brian and me could create such a perfect little baby. I'm smiling thinking of the things he loved to do as a toddler. He is definitely going through a stage now, but we really are proud to be his parents. He is such a loving boy, and to him family is everything. I couldn't be more proud. Huh, the things that start coming out of me while writing this blog sometimes. I didn't see that one
Anyway, I hope you all were able to enjoy your Mother's Day.
And try to remember...no matter how hard your day might be, tomorrow is a new day. It's our chance to change our own destiny. We only have onelife...please live it to the
