Yesterday I did nothing, and felt one sole emotion.
Today I did MANY things, and subsequently felt so many more.
Good emotions, that is. ♥
Sometimes you can’t help it, and that’s how life hits you. You just have to roll with the punches, and accept blow by blow.
But it doesn’t meant the attitude you take, and how you respond to it, means nothing.
It means everything.
I had some odd jobs this morning, and so when I came back at lunchtime to have baby girl running up to the car, I just thought she felt like I did: we missed each other.
But as I got out of the car, she kept her lips tight, and then opened her mouth wide…
Before opening her palm and showing me, a tooth!
Like an oyster opening up to show a shell!
Her fifth tooth! Another one! When your child goes through yet another milestone, all I could think of was “this happened when I was gone? I was only gone a couple of hours!”
I was so happy for her, while she was just rapt that the tooth fairy would be visiting yet again tonight.
Bloody hell. All this ‘tooth losing’ is gonna put
us the tooth fairy out of business.
And the happy mood just followed. After getting some new pants delivered, courtesy of Target (pronounce, Tar-zaaayyyyyy) baby girl and I put on our new wear, and we all ran and bicycled around the block.
After the sluggishness of yesterday, there was no chance I was going to be lying around as I had. I was going to make my heart PUMP.
But that wasn’t it. Huffing and puffing, our cheeks red from the wind and exhausted as we got home, I wasn’t even finished. No.
I joined Rachel Finch’s Body by Finch club after her insane promo this past weekend, where the special was join for 12 months for only $15.
$15 a year! Instead of like, $300!
I figured if I did one meal and one workout, a month, I was still winning.
I popped on a yoga type workout, but this one was more intense. 21 minutes of stretching and toning and flexing and pumping, it was great. Had me shaking a bit, as you do as you’re trying to slowly LOWER YOUR BODY down, instead of letting it fall in one big FLOP.
But I felt amazing afterwards. Sooo pumped. Even baby girl joined in, for like the first 10 minutes before the novelty totally wore off. But just as I was proud of me, I was proud of her, for standing next to me and going through the motions, for choosing to do something good.
Oh, who am I kidding. She just wanted to show off her pants, that’s all.
