Always running around.

I really hope all of you moms out there had a Fabtabulous Mother's Day!

Me, eh... it was a day.  Yesterday, I spent the day with a friend who helped me to get enrolled in some online classes

(cue applause here)

Yes, starting really soon, I will be enrolling in my next phase of education and the next phase on my list to a better me.

I told you guys that THIS is my year.  2010.  I plan to give it all I got!

****************************

I had all intentions of participating in Run a Mile with Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans.  I wanted to put in a mile all three days.  I failed.  I put in a mile on Saturday Morning on my treadmill.  One time. I kept putting it off but ended up with some time on Saturday morning when Miss Missy's cheer coach called to cancel because her daughter was sick.  I was happy to hear that. Games on Saturday start at 10.  Of course we are suppose to be there a half hour early.  And of course it takes place on the other side of town.  So I wasn't too sad to hear of the cancellation.  Instead I got up and did that mile on the treadmill that I had been putting off. It still takes me forever to get through an entire mile.... running the whole way.  11 minutes.  That's terrible. I'm shooting for 8, so I have to get to practicing more.  It's doable, right?

Y'all I am so thrilled with the things that the military had put in place for the spouses this past week.  With Military Spouse Appreciation, there were TONS of activities FREE for the spouses all week long.  I ran around all week!  I took a car care class.  And of course the house back riding.  There were free lessons at the shooting range.  And golf.  There were a lot of things going on and I didn't get to participate in everything I wanted to do, but I thought they did a wonderful job of organizing this week.  I ended the week with another free event on Saturday geared toward families of deployed Soldiers. The local Y opened it's doors with a day of free activities, games, food, and water park to Military Families.  Operation Augusta Cares did their thang!  The kids had a ball!

****************************

It's one of those days where I'd rather be sleeping, but I feel like that it just not an option.  I know that I need to get up, but I didn't get enough sleep this weekend. I think I'm going to put in a mile to get my energy up.  Then I have a butt load of cleaning to do.  I suck at being a domestic and Hubs told me a few says ago that's it's time for me to start looking for a job.  Staying at home was fun while it lasted, but I'm all for working and finding my independence.  He ain't saying nothing but a word! I'm all on it!

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! Mine was eh as well. I spent time with my daughter and she was happy, so all in all it was a good day.
What online classes are you taking? Are you going for a degree? I'm finishing up my Bachelors and am taking my entire courseload online. It's harder than I thought, and takes alot of planning to make sure I get it all done and in on time. The flexibility is great and works with all the juggling that I do.
Are you excited to be going back to work?
