Today’s Calendar Quote:The eye may see from the hand, but not for the mind.” — Henry David Thoreau

Monday’s and Thursday’s seem to be the worst days of the week for me to get any kind of decent sleep. Not sure exactly why this is, but that’s what I’ve noticed over the last two weeks or so.

My son had his regular therapy session this afternoon and I went upstairs to fold laundry and nearly fell asleep when I took a moment to recline. Just so tired all the time and don’t have a solution for it for the time being.

Day 131 ~ it shows me

Day 131 ~ March 19th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: hangry ~ irritable as a result of hunger.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Why do you so earnestly seek the truth in distant places? Look for delusion and truth in the bottom of your own heart.” — Ryokan

I actually got to sleep in a little longer than normal this morning! It did feel nice, but I’ve gotten used to being up and going much earlier so I was running behind almost constantly this morning. I guess I can’t have the best of both those worlds it seems!


Day 120 ~ biggest “ahhhh” sigh

Day 120 ~ March 7th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Quote:A flower falls, even though we love it; and a weed grows, even though we do not love it.” — Dogen Zenji

A relaxing afternoon by myself!!!!

I worked out, listened to music, just zoned out on the couch, went and got puppy stuff this morning, and sorted through a bunch of the kiddos “piles”. I didn’t do much else because it was so wonderful to just not have to!

So not much to talk about today other than I just took it easy. I am already starting to feel sore from today’s lifting so I will probably do some yoga soon. Here’s hoping my upper body isn’t completely destroyed tomorrow! 🙂


Day 118 ~ puppers!

Day 118 ~ March 5th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Quote:Listen. Keep silent. You are not God’s mouthpiece. Try to be an ear,
and if you do speak, ask for explanations.
” — Rumi

I went had a quick meeting with one of our landlord peeps this afternoon. We have an opportunity to get a dog that will eventually become a service dog for my son so I was nervous as all get out!

But it was all for naught! I was talking for like two minutes and she was completely on board with it. All they need for their records is a letter of intent basically from someone working my son. I have plenty of those so I was easily able to accommodate that step. And yeah, we pick up the pup next Monday. *happy dance* Hooray!

I am so excited for my son, he is going to utterly lose his mind when he realizes this dog is his forever haha

Day 116 ~ musical coffeepots… ?

Day 116 ~ March 3rd, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: pother ~ a commotion or fuss.

I decided to start lifting weights for the time being. I was missing it more than I thought I was I guess. I’m continuing with the Combat HIIT, but finishing the program on Level 3 is less important now. I’ll try to treat it as more of a warm-up before I start lifting. The ab days in the HIIT program are awesome, but the rest is not doing it for me. I should’ve gone with Power Cardio I think. Oh well, maybe do that one next.

Day 114 ~ normal all day

Day 114 ~ March 1st, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: quidnunc ~ an inquisitive, gossipy person.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Abandon learning and there will be no sorrow.” — Lao Tzu

Today was a normal day. Nothing exciting going on just the same old. I got out to grab a few groceries in the morning and then just kind of puttered around the house.

I am not enjoying the current HIIT program I am doing very much. Every other day is a little time consuming and the intensity isn’t that high. I’d buff it up more, but then it ends up taking way too much time. I need to problem solve this a bit so hopefully I come up with something in the next few days.


Day 113 ~ flowery words

Day 113 ~ February 28th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: forfend ~ to avert or prevent (something evil or unpleasant).

Today’s Calendar Quote:Conquer the angry man by love. Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.” — The Dhammapada

Great morning with my son! He did some exercising with me and we did lots of playing. And he is chatting up a storm today too! I don’t normally have my son on Wednesday’s so it was very relaxed and we just hung out with each other, it was fun. His dad is back from vacation this weekend so I think everything goes (more or less) back to normal next week. I will miss seeing my kiddo every day, but we are both keen for our regular routine as well.
