It's Wednesday

I really don't feel like this week is dragging by, but that might be due to the fact that I'm off on Friday. If I haven't mentioned this before, I can flex every other week...which means I work 4 tens and have Friday off. It greatly improves my job satisfaction (which is already high). I have to admit it is slightly depressing to still be here at 6pm, but Friday morning it won't feel depressing at all!

I am really looking forward to this weekend. Alexa and I are going to spend the day together Friday, and then Friday afternoon I'll be headed to Cola to hang out with Linds. We are planning all sorts of fun girly stuff since Sevy is going off w/ the boys. We don't get to hang out like this very often because we are both pretty busy, and weekends are just such precious time. I can't even tell you the last time we did something by ourselves.

Now it's time for a few updates. As you can tell from my exercise snapshot on the sidebar I am keeping up with that fairly well. Last week didn't end as well as I would've hoped, but I jumped right back in on Monday. Just to prove how dedicated I am...I have decided to walk on Friday even though I am not working and I could sleep late instead. Are you impressed?? I am! Let's wait and make that statement on Friday when I actually do walk. LOL!

Alexa is right in the middle or almost through (I can dream right??!!) the terrible twos. I just don't think that name does this stage justice! How in the world she can go from being a sweet little angel one minute to an angry, screaming mess the next is beyond me. I've tried to explain various things to her, and that if she would just listen she would probably get her way, but to no avail! Bedtime has become our greatest struggle, and I have no idea why. She used to go down without a fuss, and then suddenly that went away. I miss it!

I can say that my patience with her has GREATLY IMPROVED! I have a fiery temper (that's putting it mildly!) and on more than one occasion I have lost it when she has one of her fits. I am sure you are all surprised that when I am able to remain calm the situation resolves much more quickly. WOW! If I don't spaz out, it helps her to calm down as well. Patience is certainly not my forte, but it is quickly improving because I am forced to use it so frequently now. LOL!

Well, I guess that's it for now. Hopefully I'll have some GREAT pictures to post after our girls weekend. I know Lindsey will be happy about that...I always drive her crazy with my picture taking. I don't know why, I mean pictures are fun right??!! OH well, she will get over it one way or the other. I hope everyone has a good end to the week, and a great weekend as well!

Autumn,
Glad to hear that work is going well. I would love a flex schedule like that too. Good job on keeping up with your exercise routine. I know that is very hard and it takes lots of commitment and self discipline. I hope you and Lindsay have a great weekend!
