Wowza!!! Mondays come storming!!!


I am sitting in the parking lot of gymnastics while my 3 year old sleeps. Late nap. Bad news!!
My amazing hubs left at 4:30 AM to catch a flight. So I was awake. I had to work at 5:30 (from home in my PJs! – nice! I teach English to cute little Chinese kids online) So why go back to bed. I had a delightful hour to do whatever I wanted!! Yay! So I did some Yoga With Adrienne. Love that girl. Read some scripture and wrote in my journal. Bliss!! Then I worked until 8. My 12 year old had soccer practice at 8:15 – 20 min away. I came out in my running clothes. My incredible 3 kids were dressed and ready to go. Making breakfast. Some homemade GF whole grain English muffins. How impressive! With leftover sausage gravy. Less impressive. Yikes!

We ran out the door and got to soccer 15 min late.

I ran one mile. Go me!!! Heehee!

After soccer we ran a few return items to friends houses. Then went home and instead of showering. My oldest and I worked on some orientation stuff for her online class. 5 hours later. Seriously. We finished up for the day. I am excited about this class. It’s a leadership and self development class through Williamsburg Learning. Check it out!!! In the meantime I gave my younger two back massages. Oh yeah! Ate a dark chocolate, GF no sugar, whole grain brownie for lunch. Not the best choice. But oh well. I also made a berry, pineapple and banana smoothie. Yum!!! I signed up my 9 year old daughter for her first online science class. That’s exciting for her. She’s delighted. And bought her math books. Oh yeah. We are a crazy family and have decided to homeschool. This will be our 5th year. Why do we do this to ourselves. I don’t know!! I ask myself everyday. But strangely we love it and can’t imagine learning any other way.

My 9 year old had a friend over too and they had a picnic. So cute!

Then I went to a yoga class at 4. YES!!!!!

Done at 5.

Home too late at 5:20 and my girls were waiting for me. We dashed out! Off to soccer practice. (15 min early this time. She has two a day practices just on Mondays before school starts.) Then off to gymnastics for my nine year old. She was eleven minutes late. Sorry sweetie! My bad! Neither of us had shoes on hahahah!!!

Her gymnastics ends at 7 – drive a half hour and soccer ends at 7:30. So we’ll go there and right down from the fields there is an fantastic little taco truck. Dinner. I love little chicken street tacos.


Fall into bed. Quite the yang day. Tomorrow will be a yin day.

Tomorrow we have no plans! Well I AM getting a hair cut!! Yay for me!! A little pampering. Oh yeah!

I love Tuesdays. It is our plan nothing, day at home. Rest day! Hubbs will be home!

But I don’t have to work in the morning so I’ll sneak out and hit a yoga session! A little more pampering!

How’s the balance? Yin yang? Work and rest? Give and take. The pendulum swings!


9:34 pm update:  We made it at 7:37 to that glorious taco truck, walked up bare foot with three FAMISHED kids in tow.  Gave our much desired order …. and I had forgotten my wallet at home.  I had my purse.  No wallet.  Left it by the computer because I had been buying that lame math workbook.  lame.

We had left overs, ah the wonders of left overs.  Spaghetti squash with marinara sauce and a brocoli floret each!  And some watermelon, becauase every meal in the summer needs watermelon.

Soccer comes again on Wednesday.  So look out taco truck!!  I might go taco crazy!

Now I am going to read a book. Or probably fall asleep, who am I kidding!
