....since I've posted. This week has just flown by! Trying to get all my routines (home, work and exercise) in place has been not only tough but also tiring. Each day was gone before I knew it.
Workouts have been progressing, I'm still experiencing periodic foot twinges but it hasn't been happening quite as often. I will admit that I have had days where my focus isn't where it should be. On these days in particular, I have made sure that I've not done an afternoon workout. I don't want to push myself into an overtraining situation.
Something happened today that has really made me angry. I'm hoping by writing about it I will feel better. Yesterday I stopped at the local dollar store, to see if there was anything I could use at school. I found a couple of things for school and for my own kids. Both my kids had seen recorders (instrument type) and wanted one. So when I saw a 2 pack for a dollar I thought what the heck. I also bought my son a small nerf type football. Well, some time last night my son took off the small bottom portion of the recorder. I asked him where it was and would he please find it so we could put it back together. He said he didn't know and that he wasn't going to look for it. I told him that if he didn't find it I was going to have throw it away because it was broken. After less than one day he told me he didn't want it and I should throw it away. I told him that if he didn't care about the things I've gotten for him, maybe I should take the football back too (he begged for both the ball and the recorder yesterday). He told me that he didn't care.
I really thought I was doing something really nice for him and I feel like I've just been kicked by my own son. I know he is young (almost 4) but it still really hurts my feelings when I've tried to get him something that he would really enjoy. This on top of a situation last night where both kids where flat out lying to us about something that happened to one of their toys. I know kids try and push their boundaries but I want to believe that my dh and I have taught them better - no lying and appreciating the things they have.
I guess we need a bit more work.
