Well, well, well. I've started and stopped this post at least 4 times this month and here it is mid May already.
April really has been a great month but very busy. I went to my conference last week and the first night in the hotel I unpacked a little then put on my comfies, stretched out on the bed and put on the TV. Pure bliss. I had honestly felt like I had not stopped moving to actually relax (I do stop moving to sit at a computer for hours and I stop moving to sit on a crowded train and I stop moving when I sleep - but I'm pretty sure that's it) in WEEKS. I came back relaxed and recharged. I'm often asked how I do it all and it's pretty much that I never stop doing. When do I relax? When the kids are in bed and often times not even until I put my head on my pillow and pick up a book. I know I'm not unique, many people work hard but it just surprises me when people ask because I just do what has to get done!
I started this post in April and I'm finishing it in May as that's just the way it goes. I hope I can manage to come back here from time to time but with my own evening classes and soccer and swimming starting up - it's going to get a whole lot busier around here. Today I'm starting dinner at 3, picking up the girls at 3:30, working out, going to town at 5:30, soccer at 6:30, home by a little before 8, showers for the girls, bed and then I will sit for a bit and probably fold and put away clothes.
I'm happy to report that I planted the small garden ...kale, hot peppers, green peppers, peas, green onions, rainbow chard, carrots, purple cabbage, basil, oregano, parsnips, lettuce and pole beans. The bottom garden will have beets, cucumber, pumpkin, watermelon, eggplant, squash, cabbage, corn, onions and carrots. See? I'm totally over doing it this year with the hopes that it all turns out. Last year I was hesitant and not attentive enough and I had a pretty good garden but this year I want to have a GREAT garden. I'll save my next post as a garden update. Happy spring everyone!
