Okay. My mind has been blank lately about what to blog about. It seems when I blog about my passion, which is fitness, very few people comment or like my post. I know, working out can be a literal pain in the backside, and who wants to be reminded of it everyday. Well I do, but you may not. However, when I blog about mommy stuff, I get way more likes. I hardly ever get any comments. If you are a reader of blogs, comments can be quite pleasant and up lifting.
Here is what is going on in mommy town. When I have PMS or am ovulating I can be a real beast. We are talking Satan in sweatpants. I do have my handy dandy app on my phone called Period Tracker so that I can keep in touch with my virulent mood swings. The kids are aware of the Period Tracker and they see me checking it from time to time. I want to see am I ovulating or am I just spiritually immature. Usually once I have freaked out on them a couple of times I think to go and check it and sure enough my hormones are active. Is there a cure for this other than menopause or surgery?
In workout land everything is going about the same. I have some clients and I also have some lovely people that I work out with 5 days a week. Without these people, I don’t think I would push myself nearly as hard. The role of group fitness instructor is just another one of God’s ways to keep me humble as I am sad to say I am still pretty insecure after all these years. I am always second guessing myself and thinking that I am not doing a good enough job for them. They all seem to be satisfied, so I guess I am.
In my spiritual world, things have been a bit swampy lately. I have lost my desire to read the Bible pretty much and I tend to get really bogged down when it comes to learning about deep theological subjects. Some topics end up making me mad and I just rather not go there. For instance, Calvinism vs. Arminianism. I just want to chuck that whole controversy out the window. I am reading a devotional right now by my pastor Jean Hess called Journey to the Manger with St. Patrick and Friends. It is really thoughtful and comforting to my soul. You can buy it on amazon.com if you like. I have been communing with the Father and I do love praying for people.
And on my mawage– I still love my husband even though he always leaves his dirty socks by the side of the bed everyday. But I can overlook this since he makes me coffee every morning and brings it to me in bed. He also takes me out on dates and he is a great listener and I am pretty much always talking even when he’s reading or trying to read. Whew! These are just a few of his fine qualities.
Oh and we had a wonderful time in Breckenridge with my sister Kim and her hubby Jim over Thanksgiving. There was lots of laughing, cooking, eating, drinking, sledding, tubing and remembering. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving too.
With all my heart,
