It's a new week with lots of fun things on the schedule, but it's also Monday and I have a long to-do list. So basically, I've had a love/hate relationship with this day. Here are some other things I am loving and loving not so much right now...
Love: Spending time with family at weddings and family reunions.
Not So Much: The extra lbs that came with the food and fun-filled weekend.
Love: My new purse from Banana Republic. I am near the end of the diaper bag era and I found a great purse that is perfect since I still need to pack around some diaper bag essentials, such as the diapers.
Not So Much: The purse I bought at a purse party for $18 that started falling apart the first time I used it. Guess that is why you pay what you do for a purse at Banana Republic.
Love: The Princess's* excitement to earn a big-girl bike.
Not So Much: The Princess was talking to me while I was showering this morning, and I couldn't hear her over the water. She stomped over to the shower door, put her hand on her hips, and said, "Fine. Whatever. I'm done." Waaaayyyy too familiar.
Love: Getting my July Runner's World in the mail today.
Not So Much: Knowing I have to go to the post office multiple times this week.
Love: Getting caught up on my blog reading to keep me inspired and motivated.
Not So Much: Choosing between reading blogs and reading the ginormous book I just started (Under the Dome). Okay, so this one isn’t so bad.
Love: Updating my blog.
Not So Much: My new Internet Service Provider (selected by our HOA, not by me). I have no patience when it comes to the Internet not working, and it has been ridiculously intermittent since the change. It has been so bad that I had to wait for my husband to get home to use his work computer with its satellite Internet (or whatever it's called).
RUN: Newest songs on my playlist: Break Your Heart (Taio Cruz feat. Ludacris), Bulletproof (La Roux), and I Gotta Feeling (Black-Eyed Peas).
*My 4-year-old will now be known as The Princess and my 1-year-old will be known as Bean on my blog.
