Sick and Tired…{Literally}

Sick and Tired…{Literally}

What is worse than just being a tired mom?  It is being a sick AND tired mom.  That is the one thing about my job…no days off! Luckily I have an awesome husband who is helping out so mommy can get well.

Lying on the couch with Nyquil and a box of tissues doesn’t leave much time for crafting, cleaning or doing anything other than watching TV and trying to catch up on sleep, while trying to lend a hand with the baby every here and there.  So, in true lazy style I am going to list some of my favorite things:)  Hopefully I will be back in action in no time!

Here are Few of My Favorite Things

  • 1.) Pinterest – Really how could it not be?!  I have projects for days years pinned all over my boards…now where to start:)
  • 2.) Mom’s Into Fitness – I credit Mrs. Lindsay Brin for helping me get my post-baby body and abs back.  GREAT workouts pre and post-natal.  Go to her website and get 4-weeks of free workouts too!
  • 3.) Fit Bottomed Girls –  I found this blog a while ago.  They do AWESOME fitness review {videos, classes, etc} and have great fit tips and healthy recipes.  Also, for all you mommas or mommas-to-be they just launched Fit Bottomed Mamas🙂
  • 4.) Justin Bieber – I may have just turned 30…but in my inability to sleep last night Justin saved me with his Never Say Never movie on Netflix.  Pretty incredible kid…and he was one cute baby!
  • 5.) Almond Butter – Maranatha Almond Butter to be exact.  Much better than peanut butter…plus they now sell it at Sam’s Club so it is much easier on the pocket book.  I have been wanting to make my own, so once I will do I will let you know how it goes!
  • 6.) Football – The Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow, Colorado State Rams…there are 2 seasons…football season and everything else.  Sad it is almost over!
  • 7.) Chick-Fil-A – The only fast food I eat!
  • 8.) Goodwill – I am amazed at the treasures you can find at thrift stores…
  • 9.) Sleep – Especially since it has been 9 months since I got a full, uninterrupted night sleep…it is all worth it {I think ;)}
  • 10.) Coke Zero – My guilty pleasure…I KNOW its not good for me…I KNOW it has bad artificial sweeteners…but it is better than alcohol right;)

Alright the Nyquil is kicking in…going try and get some sleep!


Too Old…

Too Old…

I feel like I am too old for things now…or maybe other things are more important to me now that I have a 24/7 job and a boss that is relentless and selfish.  One thing I learned last night is that I am too old to stay out late!  Late for me these days is 10:30pm.  I am in need of a serious attitude adjustment…and a large pot of coffee today.

I need to remember that life isn’t like Burger King – I don’t always get things “My Way”

I need to remember that I can’t be Superman {woman} everyday

I need to remember that being a Mom is a blessing…even when I want to return him {yeah I said it 🙂 }

I need to remember that “this too shall pass”

I need to remember that he HAS to take a nap at some point

I need to remember it is okay to not be okay…but it is NOT okay to stay that way

The biggest thing I need to remember is that God doesn’t give me more than I can handle…that I just have to grab the bull by it’s horns and keep on keepin’ on.  There is always tomorrow and tomorrow will be better than today.

Speaking of tomorrow…I will have a great DIY to save some money on those ridiculously expensive Swiffer Wet pads!!
