I had the pleasure of introducing a some people to each other yesterday. It feels great to do that. I know in my heart that connecting these people will make wonderful things happen that will help people.
Chloe is going through a phase of learning some important lessons. It’s been a rough few days for her but I’m proud of the way she’s handling it. I wrote about it at the link below. The most important lessons she’s learned is to ask for help when you need it.
I’m feeling a little overwhelmed lately. I have so many irons in the fire and I’m feeling frazzled. The days are flying by so quickly and I feel as though there aren’t enough hours in the day. At the same time I’m trying not to sacrifice time with my family. I find myself sitting down to write or do some work whenever I have a minute. I’m writing this while waiting for Chloe to finish her cheerleading practice. I think part of is that other people are now offering to help me and I don’t want to let them down. This is starting to get more real which is exactly what I want. At the same time its pretty damn scary.
I did 17 sets of dumbbell thrusters yesterday with the 61 pound kettlebells. I felt really good. I was planning on doing 20 but I had to run out and get Tanja some cough syrup. Then we watched the latest episode of Shadow Hunters. Even though the show is absurd I kind of like it for some reason. I think I just like spending the time with the girls. Plus I never have a clue what’s going on so they get to explain it to me five times each show. Oddly, they seem to enjoy it.
I am grateful for the way we are handling Chloe’s reading situation. We talked about it, agreed on a game plan and are playing our roles really well. Excellent team parenting.
I’m grateful that our kids have such solid values and I believe they will always try to do the right thing. Well, mostly always. I don’t want to get too presumptuous.
I am grateful for this incredible weather. We have hardly had any snow this winter. I feel like spring is upon us already. I’mk starting to feel close to breaking out my amazing bike. I’m going to take it in to get tuned up today.
I am grateful for today. What are you grateful for?
