Inspiration

All it took was a good kick in the pants to get me out and into the water I love so much. I'll admit it, my kids are DRIVING ME NUTS... or maybe it's the part where my husband goes to work @ 5am comes home @ 8pm and goes straight to bed to do it all over again the next day. I think the kids have seen Justin once this week. This schedule leaves me exhausted, grouchy and a little bit psycho. I would never make it as a single mom. I also wouldn't have 3 kids as a single mom, ha! So I made my first visit to the gym today! It was wonderful!!! The kids go to the "day care" if you will and I get to swim uninterrupted for 2 hours... There is a little piece of heaven on earth. Who'd'a thought?



PS that's NOT a pic of me swimming topless with goggles and a swim cap.

It's tough to be going it alone for so many hours each day. You are an exceptional person! I'm glad you have learned to carve out a little time for yourself. It's so important and can really help you be a better person and a better mom. WAY TO GO! (BTW - no one could mistake that really slow swimmer in the photo for you...if it was you, we would only see a blur!!)

I know how you feel with the husband never being home. I get a little nervous now that #5 is on it's way. I get to go exercising every morning if I choose(at our stake center) and the girls just run around. Doesn't it feel good to get some exercise, even if you have to take kids?
