. . . . woke up at 5:30am. I was supposed to wake up at 5:15 and get on the elliptical machine for 20 minutes. But instead I ignored my alarm, and finally after Scott's prodding I dressed in my workout clothes, a sweater (we've turned off the heater), and crept downstairs to take care of emails and such.
. . . . walked the kids to school. We found a teeny tiny baby scorpion on our way. And then I continued on a walk/jog by myself while listening to a Power of Moms podcast. Total distance: 3.34 miles.
. . . . had a major shampoo/conditioner fail which left my hair super greasy after blow-drying. Yuck. Ponytail to the rescue.
. . . . went to religion class and sat with my empty nester friends. We chatted about church activities and why it's so great for the young moms to be friends with the old moms/grandmas and vice versa. Wish more young moms understood that. Then we learned all about Samuel the Lamanite, Gadianton robbers, signs of Christ's coming, and what happens when you forget God. Bad things.
. . . . ate my 300 calorie Healthy Choice lunch outside by the pool. Because I can.
. . . . planned, schemed, and dreamed with friends over social media.
. . . . opened up the doors to let the fresh air in. I've got to enjoy this weather as much as I can before it gets too HOT.
. . . . toted the boys to and from piano lessons. Piano festival is this weekend! I think they are ready, but still there will be lots of practicing this week.
. . . . tried to teach a piano lesson to Anna. But then she got really huffy so we ended it. An hour later we tried again and she was much more agreeable. Today she learned all about staccato. Last week we covered legato.
. . . . cooked up some spaghetti, peas, and a baguette for dinner. Anna loves peas. Payton loves the hamburger meat in the sauce. Conner loves the plain sauce and picks out the meat. I just love it when they eat and don't complain.
. . . . did a few loads of laundry, some pool cleaning, broke up the ceiling-rattling commotion from the kids, delivered berry order forms for Relief Society, reminded Payton to memorize the Preamble, listened to the kids jump on the trampoline after sunset, assigned Anna to empty all the trash cans, thanked Conner for setting the table on his own initiative, dished out ice cream after dinner, and waited for Scott to come home from a late meeting.
Just a normal, wonderful day.
