I went to the gym this morning, worked my butt off at water aerobics, came home, sat down on the couch for 20 minutes to read with Clarissa, got up to answer the phone and my ab muscles hurt so bad I could barely stand up! My first thought was "OUCH!!" and my second thought was "YAY!"! :) There's some pleasure in coming home from the gym and feeling sore muscles. It makes me feel like all the work is getting me somewhere. It motivates me to keep going. We had the crazy Molly Shannon teacher today. She makes me laugh. I always look forward to her classes!
My other exciting news today is that this morning Josh was awarded a presidential academic acheivement award! They had a little awards ceremony this morning and he got a pin and certificate and a letter signed by the president. (Well, OK, not an actual ink signature, but still.) I'm so proud of him, that kid never ceases to amaze me. He's awesome and I'm lucky to be his mom. I'm having a hard time with the fact that he's now down to his last few weeks of elementary school. He starts middle school in the fall and it's still totally freaking me out. They really do grow up way too fast.
I'm trying to think of something else to write about, but that's pretty much all I have to say and all the time I have to say it! I'm off to get the kids some dinner and then I think we're going to have a movie night. Shawn has a chuch meeting to go to and I need a little peace and quiet around here. Let's hope a movie and some popcorn does the trick! :)
