thankful to be busy

Monday night...this is the FIRST TIME I am SITTING DOWN for the DAY! *oops I did sit down while I ate lunch* although I have been known to stand and eat too.

I am exhausted and yet I didn't do THAT much....

So today I am thankful for a busy day.


  • 6am cycle class that had me sweating like a pig...and a stinky one at that.
  • a few hours of work at the Y
  • head to the library to pick up my book on hold...Long Run...can't wait to start it!
  • lunch (baked kale, spaghetti squash and leftover oriental salad...mmmmm)
  • Thanksgiving groceries...I bought the last of her prime rib she had out for the moment..(again mmmmmmmmm)
  • I started supper~shredded bbq chicken in the crock pot
  • peeled potatoes~for some homemade fries
  • and just enough time to run and pick up Coley from school
  • ate supper
  • TUTOR TIME with daughter and her math home work
  • run the boy to basketball
  • run an errand while he is there and back to pick him up
  • finally home to MY time in front of the computer but I am thinking my bed and pj's are calling my name instead.


I have a job, money to buy food, a comfortable bed to rest in, friends to work out with, and children that need me....I am busy....but, I am thankful for it!


***edit *** I went to bed last night at 8:50 and woke up at 5:50 this morning....guess running around is tiring on my body.  ;-)

Glad you got a good night's sleep:) I have had a few days like that recently. I love that feeling of hitting the sheets purely exhausted.

Nothing else compares to this....

That feeling right after you put away ALL the Christmas decorations.....you've dusted, vacuumed, rearranged the furniture in a brand ...
