Burst of energy

Every now and then you get a burst of energy and it seems like you can do anything you need to. Today was one of those days for me. I had a a lot of errands to do and a doctor appointment for my daughter an hour away. Yet somehow I managed to get all the cleaning done and make dinner for our "new parents". I spent some quality time with each of the kids one on one (a rarity I'm afraid) and even got an hour long walk in I guess when you limit the time you spend on the frivolous things like Internet, television and standing around out front with the neighbors along with sticking to the schedule you have planned for your children that is what happens. Maybe I should try this more often. I feel better about my day then I normally would and I am convinced it's because I accomplished what I normally would do in three days in just one. I hope to continue with this new decision my husband I have agreed on to spend more time with the family instead of friends.

It's so true, isn't it? That when we do what we need to, rather than what we want to, it goes so well, and we have such a sense of accomplishment.

Well done!

Good for you. This is such a struggle for me. I hope you continue to make progress. Maybe you'll inspire me!
