So far, so good. Probably the most notable thing about the changes I'm making is that I'm becoming aware of how very negative my self-talk is. Tim suggested yesterday that I think about taking some of the free classes at the Apple store. My first thought (and comment)? Too far, takes too much time. This morning he was heading out to golf and all I could think of is how trapped the kids make me feel.
While the Apple store is 30 minutes away, and I do need to stay home with the kids at times (it's the way we've chosen to do the parenting thing), it's ridiculous to only see the bad in the situation. Ummmm, yeah I could drive 30 minutes for an interesting class. And my kids are 14 (in 3 weeks) and 11, not 4 and 1! (Although the other day I was gone for 30 minutes at the grocery store, and when I came back all hell had broken loose. Ok, but that's feeding the whole negative thing and I don't even want to go there!) Anyway, the point is that I do have autonomy in my life to the degree that I'll choose it!
On a lighter note, has anyone checked out "Saving Grace" on TNT? I LOVE that show!!! We have very little time for TV now that our kids don't have an early bedtime and want to watch whatever we're watching (with a TV-MA rating, we do not let the kids watch Grace with us). But we'll make it a point to find time to watch this.
And speaking of Holly Hunter, Tony asked me to find a picture to use as a goal of where I'd like to be, and I think Holly Hunter is IT! But I'm still searching for the right picture...
Finally, green tea extract is a wonderful thing, in case you're looking for something that's healthy AND increases your energy. I've read about it for a while now, and can't believe it's taken me thing long to try it.
