Today is the last day to enter my Sparkly Soul giveaway!
I am sitting here watching the sun come up and enjoying a cup of coffee. My house is so quiet right now.
My husband took the kids up to see his parents yesterday and won't be home until tomorrow afternoon sometime. I miss them so much and yet it is nice to have some quiet time to reflect and relax! No cooking, no mediating fights, no trying to find someone to watch the kids while I run. A little mommycation if you will. The funny thing about a mommycation I have discovered is that normally I am in bed by nine, if not earlier, but when they are gone I stay up late! There is no reason to go to bed early. No one is going to wake me at the ass crack of dawn wanting breakfast and a snuggle. I can sleep in (if I could, but my internal alarm clock still hauls me out of bed at 5 am!) I can take a nap when I feel like it. I can watch what I want on TV, uninterrupted! If I want kipper snacks and an apple for supper, no one whines. I will clean the house this morning and it will stay clean until 2.2 seconds after they get in the door. I can sit and read a book for hours. Rejuvenating!
Of course when their happy to see me little faces show up tomorrow I will be so happy to see them and glad they are home. I will hold them close and be thankful. Thankful I have them and thankful for my awesome husband. Our 6 year anniversary is coming up soon! I will have to tell the story of how I met my husband sometime. It is a I saw him and I knew kind of story. :)
I have almost been following BodyRock.tv for a year now! They use a Gym Boss interval timer for a lot of their workouts. I have been using a free interval timer on the internet this whole time which at times can be very inconvenient. No more! Gym Boss sent me one to try out and one to send to a reader! So be watching for that coming up. I am so excited to try it out today. Speaking of Bodyrock.tv I did the Give Me a Reason workout Wednesday night and due to the insane amount of jump lunges still cannot move without pain. I really love that workout though! It is short but when you are done you are ready to be done. I did throw in an extra set of the pushups and knee raises.
I am up and running on Pinterest! I have found a few people but am having a hard time finding you guys. I tried friend finder through twitter but it never seems to work just keeps thinking and thinking.. It was been working on it for about an hour now. A little frustrating! So help! or find me! I am loving all the stuff I am finding on the site though.
I am planning to clean the house this morning, run, BodyRock, and then? I am betting I will be spending some time catching up on blogs, figuring out Pinterest, and reading. I also have some movies on the DVR I have been wanting to watch.
Enjoy your Saturday! Good luck to all the racers out there this weekend! Go get em, though I bet some probably already are hard at it!
What do you like to do when you have a mommy or daddycation?
