I didn't think I was going to make it!

First, I didn't think I was going to make it to the outlet mall to take back some jeans I bought...but with a little deviation from our "normal" schedule I did!

Then I really didn't think I would make it to the gym...but I pushed myself and then to REALLY help motivate me I called and got my friend and neighbor Blythe to go too!

THEN I really really didn't think I would make it through the run on the treadmill. My running hasn't been consistent for several reasons and that was my first run in 2 weeks! On top of that, my furthest distance had been 2.5 miles. So we pressed the 5k button and started going. I made it but I am surprised.

THEN I really really really didn't think I was going to make it through getting the kids to bed. Darby had a rough day. She hardly listened to an ounce of what I asked her to do! So that makes for an EXHAUSTING day. Then, at bath time she bit Carson! Hard! She wasn't being mean though. I think she just had the idea and tried it! So what did I do? I bit her. Someone told my friend to do this with her child who was biting at school. I think it was effective. She was very remorseful.

Now we are on the other side of bedtime and I wish I didn't have to make it through taking a shower and doing my laundry that is out of control but...such is life = ).


  1. Beth~ I love your cute. Your family pictures are adorable! I can't believe your baby is so big...time does fly. That is one question I am going to ask God when I get to heaven, "Why can't they stay smaller longer?" Hope ya'll are doing well. Tell Chad I said hello!

  2. I feel your pain!! I also did the biting thing too. It worked great with my boys. :)

  3. oh my... when i saw the title i thought you had an allergy attack. thank goodness you didn't!

  4. I'm commenting on this post since you are taking a bloggy break. PLUS, you have loads of posts that I haven't read. Mono is very stinko. I've never had it, but I know with two little ones you must be miserable!

    Funny, you mentioned your friend Blythe in this post and THAT is my verification!
