The GOOD! madee(my 10 yr old) and I did a 6mile hike with some friends.
During our planning we never discussed how long of a hike we were going to do...so 6miles was a little surprising...but we did it!!! I feel so blessed that we can physically do such a thing!
The BAD! Mitchell and his cute girlfriend broke up. I have to admit I thought they were too young to be so serious, but we loved her to death. I know they will be fine, but my heart aches for them. It really sucks watching your kids hurt!
The UGLY! The stiffness that set in on Sunday after the hike...trying to do stairs...getting up and down and sitting through church...going to the bathroom! It was not pretty...but after a 1hr spin class on mon and a 1 hr combat class today i am almost back to normal! Phew!
Here's to all my wonderful family & friends out there! You are all beautiful, talented, and awesome MOMS! I don't know about you, but for me, being a mom is my biggest accomplishment! Sometimes my biggest challenge!
I feel so blessed to be a mom and love my kids more than I thought possible!!!
I really wish time didn't get away from me! Time goes so fast, then I think I really should post, then I have no big ideas for a great post so I don't...
I do however have a 17yr old in the house now...he is driving, working and has a girlfriend!(we love her, but do not love the idea of the serious girlfriend thing!)
I had a dream a few weeks ago and in my dream mitch was 5. It was so real I kept thinking all day that I wish I could go back to when he was five!
We love him and are so proud!
We went to a nice dinner (with girlfriend in tow that is a good way to make yourself feel old) and then we arranged for his friends to be waiting when we got home for a surprise party. It was so fun! Happy 17th Mitch! We love ya so much!
