I have a great life. I know this. I celebrate it. There are so many good things going on for us these days. Alyssa is doing wonderfully well in her gymnastics class as well as school.
Olivia talks all the time, no matter who is around, which is awesome and thrilling.
Tom and I are good. Very good, in fact.
And yet the monotony of our day to day lives is getting to me.
I know this is because it’s February and winter and that sucks all the way around. We get up, we go to work/school, we come home, we eat dinner, clean up after dinner, read books, scratch backs and go to bed so we can do it all again.
Thursdays are our one night that differs and Thursdays make me twitch with boredom. Okay, so it’s probably bad to admit that sitting in a room with other parents, attempting to entertain Olivia for an hour while Alyssa does her best in her class is boring but oh dear heaven it is so, so boring.
Saturdays bring us to the grocery store and the library and sometimes, out to eat for lunch but I get so tired of eating at McD’s and DQ. Those are the girls’ two choices. Ugh!
I bought a new mat for in front of my kitchen sink a couple of weeks ago. It’s lovely and is inspiring me to bring some of the colors in that mat into the kitchen. But right now, in the middle of February, I can’t be bothered.
I know. Wah, wah, wah. Woe is me.
Except I don’t feel woe. I feel good. Just bored, I guess.
We need to shake things up. I’ll figure it out.
On the bright side of February, I’m 19.5 pounds down since January 2. I’m feeling pretty darned good about that. Though admittedly, I stepped on the scale three times in hopes of making it go that one extra half pound. Alas, nothing doing. On the even brighter side, I know that it will come off in the next week so there's always that to which I look forward.
