HALF BIRTHDAY. Amazingly, 6 whole months have passed since Brady joined our family. He’s starting to interact with everything around him in such a more profound way. He’s spoiled rotten and loves to be held, but oh well. My shoulders are paying the price for carrying him around with me all the time, but there’s WAY worse things. Some day he’ll be a teenager and he won’t want ANYTHING to do with me. I’ll be LAME and STUPID. For now, I’ll hold him close to my heart and snuggle the pants off of him!
SWIM. Who would have thought swimming could have such a huge impact on Katelyn? She has become more focused than ever, and is starting to do much better in school. Last I looked she was up to 3 B’s and 3 C’s instead of C’s, D’s and F’s. There is the added incentive that if she gets all B’s she gets to go to Punta Cana with my Mother in February. She’s busting her tail in school and has even sat down and had dinner with us every night for the last 3 weeks. It’s a huge relief to see her acting like her old loving self again. Don’t get me wrong…she still has selfish teenager moments, but it’s become much better.
WOD. I’m still having problems getting to the gym as often as I’d like. My goal is to get Brady on a rigid nap schedule of 11:00 and 3:00 to help make our days a little more predictable. I think he’s getting some new teeth though, because my baby who used to sleep through the night is now waking up THREE TIMES. UGH. Me = tired. Most of my workouts have been RX’d including the one yesterday with an 800m run. It was slow, but I did the whole darn thing with a smile on my face!
BUMPS. The bumps in my road are still rocking my ship, but things are looking better. November was our worst revenue month at our gym since 2009 and that’s scary. We have a lot of great people who just finished ramp-up and next week is our Friends and Family Funtastic Free Week so it should be mega busy. I’m just hoping to get some new faces in the Fort and fill the December ramp-up. It wouldn’t hurt to get back a few old faces either. 🙂
