A fantastic morning despite being incredibly sore from my core workout yesterday! Kidlet was in a great mood so that means the day start off on the right foot and it gives up more options to begin his schedule with as well.
This morning we went to the indoor track as I’ve wanted to take him for a while and not able to get it planned just right. All that changed this morning and he did amazing there and he had fun!! It was a mish-mash of walking and running but we ended up going just under two kilometers. I can’t wait to take him back again and I am ecstatic that he seems to actually like running!

I went to my mom’s new place with a friend of hers to help do some piddley stuff around there this morning. It was a good little chunk of fix ups done in a few hours and it got me a couple of curtain rods for my place and two metal rods to make raised bird feeders that the squirrels can’t climb.

Energy-wise it was an extremely slow morning. I couldn’t get my ‘get-up-and-go’ going a hundred percent until much later in the afternoon. I nearly opted to do groceries a different day, but I knew that would just make me frazzled as far as time goes so I didn’t choose that route. I am so glad I didn’t because I saw a co-worker from my old job at the grocery store and I hadn’t seen him in a couple of years. Turns out he is about to leave the same place as well for partly the same reason I did, but it’s now a thousand times worse than when I left about 4 years ago. Considering how much it is stressing him out, I am so glad to hear he is cutting himself loose and I know he’ll find something better if he chooses to find other work.
He is easily one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met and I was so glad to run into him randomly this afternoon!
Day 62 ~ January 8th, 2018
A high-strung start to the day but we got it sorted quicker than expected. I simply removed the iPad from my son’s possession because it was causing so many darn issues it was better for him not to have it.

I think sometime this week I’m going to be heading to a beginner’s class for pole dancing with a friend of mine! I don’t have all the details yet, but I’m looking forward to it and it’s on my bucket list (#50). Plus, I’m stoked to be doing this with a friend so we can have fun and be newbies together haha

Day 60 ~ January 6th, 2018
My calves are killing me today because of the stairs I ran yesterday! It feels like there are small rocks crammed inside them they are so tight… Lots of self-massage and stretching throughout the day so I hope they aren’t too bad tomorrow.
And that is it for a post today as I so badly want to sit and relax my noodle!

Day 59 ~ January 5th, 2018
An up and down morning with the kiddo… This are tougher days because it’s difficult to play the same yo-yo game as him when we are not on the same wavelength. But we get through it regardless and at the end of the day he was a super happy camper so I count that as a win in my books. Every day can’t be smooth sailing so the hiccup-y days are to be expected!
