Nobody objects to a woman being a good writer or sculptor or geneticist if at the same time she manages to be a good wife, good mother, good looking, good tempered, well groomed and unaggressive. ~ Leslie McIntyre

I'm OK.

Hey guys...
Today has been - well it's been rough to be perfectly honest. All the mom's out there will feel me on this. As a mother we have the feeling of obligation to our husband's, our children, our job and THEN ourselves most of the time. It's just something in our nature I think. Well, I think things are going to be changing in my little world, but I don't know for sure. Some of these changes will be great! I am very excited to tell you all about them once they become finalized, but some of the changes scare me and make me angry - I'm just sayin. The bad changes (if they come to light) will effect my entire family and NOT in a good way. But I've stressed over them all day because of how it will effect my girls. I'm a grown up and can handle change because I understand the ways of the world (sometimes) but the girls are young, pure and innocent. They haven't been introduced to the 'sell your soul (and other people) for money' attitudes that are out there. Anyway, needless to say, today has been a rough one, but I'm ok!

Now - FOOD! I got up at 5:45 this morning and had a great run. I have been stuck on listening to Daughtry for about 2 months now. I've got my run timed by the songs and the beat and the pace and it all just goes together. I made it up that hill again which is so exciting for me! Call me crazy, but that is a little goal I set up for myself and everytime I am able to do it (and do it easier then the time before) I get all happy and giddy... :)

Once at work I had 1 cup of Sunday oats with a handful of dried cherries, a spoon full of almond butter, 2 spoons full of pumpkin butter and 1/2 cup of vanilla soymilk. I will never get tired of this breakfast!

After breakfast I proceeded to run ALL DAY! I felt like I was behind before I even got to work this morning. Oh well, it makes for an interesting and quick day. I peeked in the window of Regan's classroom a couple times because I missed her more than usual today. She seemed to be very happy playing with her new friends in her new classroom. That brought a much needed smile to my face.

I switched up my lunch on ya'll today for sure.

I had roasted garlic hummus on an Arnold's sandwich thin with tofurky, sliced red onion, leaf lettuce and muenster cheese. It was SOOOO good!

Thanks to my friend, Keesa, I paired it with a side of fresh kiwi that I peeled and chopped myself. Kiwi is so sweet and yummy and just plain good.

Together these two items satisfied my every need this afternoon. I think the kiwi even made me a little happier! I finished out the day by preparing for tomorrow which is ANOTHER solo Friday. I'm beginning to hate solo Friday's, but what's a girl to do?

I'm normally a very happy person, but this day has been hard. I left work, came home and now I'm telling you all my troubles of the day while munching on one of my new favorite things...(do I say that about everything? I think I do) anyway - this bar is chewy and moist and fruity and sweet and FILLING!

Well, dear readers, I've got to do some banking and then go pick up Regan from school. We have until 5:30 to hang out just the two of us because Linsey is at dance class. I want to make the most of it by getting what I need to get done now.

Peace out...
