Today was one of those days…. I feel like I could do anything. Work a full day and care for a child afterwards? Sure, bring it on! Cook dinner on top of it? Yup, I’ll accept that challenge. Oh, you want me to bake a little bit too? Why not?! Give the boy a bath, and be done all of it before 7pm? Absolutely!
No, but seriously… I’ve had a busy day! I was up and working by 6:00am. Typically I work 9 hour days so I can have every other Monday off. Today, I worked just about 11 hours so I could build up some comp time because I’m a bit low on vacation time and you never know when I might want to take a vacation!
On my lunch break, I jumped on the treadmill for 30 minutes. It felt great. I really, really enjoy the treadmill at lunch and some days I even wish my lunch break was more than 30 minutes long. Crazy aren’t I? Don’t get me wrong, some days I hate it… but I do it for the feeling I get AFTER I get off the treadmill!
Then after working just about 11 hours, I took a quick shower (I waited because I knew I’d get sweaty from the treadmill!) and decided to finally make that banana bread I have been planning to make. That’s right, two small banana bread loafs with some blueberries mixed in! Lil man had some pudding, yogurt, and some apple while watching a show on the iPad. After that mixture of food he was definitely in need of a bath! I started to just clean him with a cloth, but it made sense to just give him a bath since he was due anyway.
After bath I made a bit for dinner, of which of course Lil man wanted some too! Then I chatted with a friend… and now I’m here!
It’s days like these that make me realize that it’s okay to have other days. Other days not worth talking about. Days where I stay in my pj’s from sunrise to sunset. Days where I do nothing more than feed Lil man 3 meals and a few snacks in between. It’s a give and take system. When I give – I GIVE. When I take – I TAKE! I guess you could say I’m one of those “all or nothing” people…
Tonight, I’ll leave you with a view of my creation from earlier!
