Friday Night Leftovers - lack of motivation

  • My mom headed back to IL on Sunday, which, of course, caused Addyson to have several pleas for her to stay.  We promised her that she could soon go to Grandma's house and pool as soon as it stayed warm.  
  • I nearly had to make three visits to the doctor this week.  
  • We started Monday out with me taking Kinsley to the doctor for what we believed to be a UTI.  She is on antibiotics and vinegar baths (she smells like a pickle).  I'll be taking her back at the end of next week for another check. 
  • That night, Addy developed a sty on her eye.  We were assured that our at home treatment should work, and it has.  
  • Yesterday I nearly broke down the girls' bedroom door in a damn panic attack.  I'm in the recliner reading a book while the monkeys are in complete eye sight running back and forth.  Next thing I know I hear a door shut and high-pitched screams from Eligh.  His hand was flippin in not only the door, but a locked door.  He has two, red, swollen fingers but we dot not believe they are broken.  My heart is still beating up in my throat.
  • And yesterday I mentioned that all we seem to have is bad luck, see it is true.  Why us all.the.damn.time?
  • My motivation for running has come and gone.  I was on track two weeks ago, then got sick, and now what is my excuse?  I am enjoying my sleep.  The alarm goes off, my clothes, and shoes look at me and tell me to wake my fat ass up and get on the treadmill, but instead I turn off the alarm and go back to sleep.  
  • I did go to Zumba twice this week, does that count for anything?
  • Self reflection:  I feel like I have been invited to a reunion of sorts, and I've got nothing to bring to the table.  I'm the dinner guest that shouldn't have been. 
You MUST, MUST, MUST check out our host, Danifred, she simply rocks.


  1. Oh poor baby, I'm so glad to hear he didn't have any broken fingers! I would have cried with him. :-(

    I need to start getting back into shape. I feel like such a blob!

    Visiting from FNL. :-)

  2. Your kiddos are adorable!!! And I LOVE the name Kinsley. It was on my top 3 list... :)

    Happy ICLW!

  3. You're not kidding about bad luck. Hopefully you've used up your share and next week you'll win the lottery!

    I have a love hate relationship with running. I dread it leading up to it and then love it when it's over. I'm glad it's starting to get nicer so I can go outside instead of the boring treadmill.

    Have a good weekend!

  4. I so lack the working out motivation these days. I used to love running, now not so much. The hours i can go to the gym there are no classes, so running and weights seem like my only options.

  5. Zumba definitely counts! I hope everyone is on the mend soon.

  6. Good grief! What bad luck! I hope everyone is feeling better.

    Ugh, I need to start working out.

  7. Um, yes, Zumba totally, totally counts. It's more than what I did all week. I hope everyone will be feeling better soon. I'm sending positive luck your way :)

  8. Oh my gosh. Those kids are taking years off of your life! Hope everyone is feeling better!!

  9. And I noticed you changed your font color- sooooo much easier on the eyes! :)

  10. So sorry that things don't seem to be going well.

    I really wish that I could get motivated to go to Zumba. I'm so lazy these days!

  11. 1) Boo to the doctor visits and injuries.
    2) Boo to the bad luck.
    3) Yeah for Zumba. It totally counts!
    4) Yeah for going back to school to get your Master's. (don't think I've told you that yet)
    5) Boo to thinking you are the guest who shouldn't have been. You have plenty to bring to the table--any table!

    Hugs to you, girl. I hope things look brighter for you soon.
