Last night I made more of an effort to get to bed at a decent time. Before 11pm is good for me most days. Last night I was successful with this goal. This morning I woke up just before my alarm went off at about 6:30am & was trying to hard to get out of bed. I have been sleep deprived over the last few days because I wanted to spend as much time with our family that came to visit as possible & was trying to get some Vista print stuff ordered the other night. Well, it caught up to me. I'm not as young as I look is all I have to say.
I headed downstairs to my new workout area to put my video in & do some stretching. My body really needed it. Only I found out that I had a problem. No remote for the DVD player. Now normally that wouldn't be a problem right? One can just push buttons on the front & make it work. Well, not in this case. It's a DVD & VCR player & since I had stored the machine in the basement for months b/c we had been using our PS3 for a DVD player upstairs we weren't using it & the remote was misplaced. I searched high & low for it. NOTHING. I even had my husband looking for it before work. So I switched to a different DVD play that was in the basement to get 5 mins into the workout & find out why we put it in the basement in the first place. It was a glitchy & annoying. I know it wasn't my dvd because I had already played the first workout on the other machine when I was trying to get it to the 2nd workout. I was hoping it would jump to it after playing through the 1st one. NOPE. So finally my 7 year old son woke up & came downstairs. I said something to him & wouldn't you know he ran & brought me the remote right away. It was in the remote control holder the whole time & in my state of forgetfulness that I can sometimes be in, I had forgotten it was there. Needless to say by the time this whole fiasco was done, I had NO time to do my stretching workout with my new yoga socks & in my new space so I shut everything off, put the laundry away & got ready for the day with every intention to head back to the basement later today to get my stretching in. I will not miss it today. My body is calling for a nice long stretch & I plan to listen. After all, I keep telling my kids to listen to their body so I need to lead by example & listen to mine.
To add to my non-typical Monday, I had a friend come over & watch my kids so I could head to the church building & get a few things done. My husband & I recently took over the Children ministry after our youth pastor moved to a new church. And I am currently camp coordinator so I have had to make sure that everything is ready for camp next week. I ran a few errands & got back just as my daughter's friend was being dropped off for a playdate for a few hours this afternoon. It didn't take long for the kids to start running all over in the house. I had to laugh because it wasn't like we added a ton more kids & I knew it was from excitement. After about 3 mins of that, I put an end to the running before someone got hurt. So now I am getting some work done at my desk. Clearing off my desk & organizing things so I can be more productive this week with my family as well as my ministry job & my Beachbody business.
