A lot accomplished today.

Saturday, August 13, 2011

My husband went away for the weekend. It has been a great time with me and my girls. Last night I went with my BIL and my daughter for an icecream in our 68 camaro. It was fun to take it out and the night was beautiful.
This morning I had all intentions of getting up early and going to the gym. Doing a swim and then a bike ride on the expresso bikes. But.... It did not go as planned. My daughters wanted some together time before my oldest went to work. So we all sat on my oldest girl's bed and just chatted and giggled before she went to work. Those mornings are so far and few between with an 17 and almost 20 year old, I just loved the time together. I did some laundry, went to the bank and to Walmart... I came home to make the veggie lasagna that we were having for dinner. I looked at the clock and it was almost 4pm and still no gym.

Finally I looked at my youngest. Gave her instructions and headed to the gym to do a brick.
I got a bike ride and a run on the AMT. I even went in the Sauna for 15 minutes....

I think an early bed time is in my cards for tonight.... What a great day.

    You have to spend time with family while you can. Treasure those times!

    I actually looked up the AMT to see what you were talking about. Wow, that looks interesting. Great day!

    Sometimes to take time to enjoy your family is MORE important than exercise! You will get there - I am glad though I have a pool at home because I just JUMP right in - GLAD you had family time.
    Our son came home from New Jersey for my Dad's family reunion and my cousin's pool is gorgeous!! No one wanted to go swimming so I had the pool to myself and my son just chatted with me after I swam my laps so we had a nice time!

    I treasure THOSE moments - especially after I had swam the entire length of the pool underwater and I came up my son said "MOM you are such a FISH!!!" I looked up at him and welled up with tears and said "THANK YOU sweetie - that is EXACTLY what YOUR NANA CALLED ME ALL THE TIME!!" A great time and a great memory

    You are so right Jeanne, to have enjoyed the girls company before anything else. In no time they'll be out the door, and those precious times will be gone forever with no way of ever going back in time to try to retrieve it.

    I missed so much with Amy-Jean that it absolute breaks my heart, so cherish ALL those moments together, Sweetie.

    Good job on getting the gym a bit later.

    I love time like that with my two kids. I can't believe our kids are the exact same ages. They too are my bestest friends. :)

    Way to go on getting your exercise in. A sauna sounds great to me right about now. A bath will have to do.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend Jeanne.
