Where has time gone? Ever feel like you are running on fumes? That is how I feel. I remember the days when I looked forward to the kids having school, and having that little bit of "me" time to hit the gym, shop, CLEAN... you know... the fun stuff. And now the only thing I look forward to is the weekend, where there is NO school, NO work, NO getting up early and working all day just to run around all night to various kid activities. Sigh. I. AM. EXHAUSTED. All the time. EXHAUSTED.

I realized the last couple of weeks that I need to make some changes. For my own sanity. The job I started when the kids were both in school full time was mainly to get me out of the house, a change of scenery, a little extra cash, but it was only meant to be 2-3 days a week. PERFECT! It has turned into 4-5 days a week (lately more like 5) which literally leaves me no time for myself. Don't get me wrong. I love my job, its fun, the girls are AWESOME. I get to socialize and laugh and meet new people. All of which I love but when I get home at the end of the day I am so wiped out that all I want to do is sit. BUT, being that I am a single mom right now there is no sitting. Its homework with the kids, dinner (which I usually eat standing up btw), bags packed for the next day, laundry, tidying up and before I know it its midnight and I crash and wake up at 6 am to do it all over again.

As soon as Christmas is over with (bah-humbug) and kids are back in school I am cutting my shifts at work down to 2-3 days a week. I have to. I NEED the gym back in my life. I MISS the stage... so much. I want to get back on it once or twice before we leave California for good. That means I have a lot of work to do in a very short amount of time. Since we don't know when we will be moving yet I am setting a goal for all of you to see.... (this is not written in stone folks, could very well change ha ha ha)
