This is the first day in about two weeks that I have both children in school, and there is so much that needs to be done. The yard has largely been neglected while I was doing indoor projects. I’m going to mow the yard- front and back; weed the landscaping, and start my one outdoor project of replacing the rock around the pool surround. I dread this project, because it just seems so daunting, but I think if I do just a section at a time, I should be able to complete it before my husband returns.
I also attempted to run. The run went fairly well, but going from climate controlled on a treadmill to hot, humid, and windy outside sure caused me to nearly bonk the run. I’m really looking forward to some of the family visits, when I can go running outside really early in the morning. I sure hope no one expects me to socialize between 6:00 AM and 10:30 AM, while I workout. I know that it’s completely selfish of me, but I need to be able to have sanity over this summer. Working out and focusing solely on me, saves me from complete melt down. Even though this run today was hard to do, I feel so much better now that it’s done. Now, I need to muster up the energy to get the rest of my tasks accomplished.
