View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Today I have a girls night out with my playdate moms, a group of 4 women that I have been getting together with since Will was born. We do far fewer actual playdates now that the kids are in school, but we've transitioned the get togethers into GNO. It will be nice to be social.
Work has been so much less of a mental and emotional drag on me over past few weeks. I think part of it is the actual restructuring, but most of it is probably my approach to work. The idea of slowing down and letting go have helped. And it will just be nice to be learning something new there soon. And I'm pleased that my instincts are serving me well so far with my new relationship with *. Sometimes my instincts are TOTALLY off and get me into trouble, but so far, so good. I'm still on the fence regarding grad school.
Maintenance has been succesful so far this January. I think I need to do some tweaking to a few habits, but overall, its good. I just finished Week 4 of meeting my 30 min x 4 per week of exercise. Next week it goes up to 35 mins.
The kids are doing fine. I need to figure out how to get Ellen more social time with other toddlers. Right now the only interactions she has are at church in the nursery. Will and I are doing swimming, but I want him to go to the next level after this class is done - the next level would be the first class he's taken without me actually IN it with him, but I can sit on the bleachers and watch. It'll be good for him. Living on a lake and boating, etc., I want him to be able to swim as early as possible for the safety of it.
Steve and I are doing fine, too. Its winter and we seem to get into deep ruts this time of year, but hopefully we can continue to make an effort to connect more. He's thinking of doing a music trip in February to Iowa to see some friends, which I hope he makes happen. It will be good for him to get away. He completely devasted that the 10,000 Lakes Music Festival is cancelled this summer.
