today.....or rather yesterday

Today..... I took Asher to a local working farm to see the new baby animals. I have been spending a lot of hours on a work project this week and wanted to get him out of the house. After he deemed the sheep "too loud" and the baby bunnies "too scary," I remembered how much we both dislike the farm and saw the trip for what it truly was....mommy guilt.

Today.... I burned the rice for dinner, but nobody seemed (or dared) to notice.

Today..... I chose to stay home from Tuesday night basketball to rest my ailing back. Instead, I put in a "pilates" workout dvd from the library. As soon as Kathy Smith told me to "mambo," I instantly regretted my decision to skip my beloved bball night and saw the dvd for what it truly was..... 80's aerobics disguised as pilates.

Today..... I got a check from our insurance company. They are over a year behind paying their percentage of Noe's speech therapy and I have been harassing them for months. Unfortunately, the check was made out to our provider....which has since changed I can't even give them the check for credit towards our account. Universal health care are beautiful beautiful words to me.

Today...... when I got Noe off the bus from school, he waved and gave me a sly smile, then whispered to me "Hi Mama." I forgot all about the stupid insurance company and the mommy guilt and saw my life and my kids and my Easy Ed for what they truly are....wonderful.

Pilates- yeah. Sorry it was so aweful. Do you need a good video recommendation? I would recommend Rael's 07, 17, 27 workouts. They are really, really do and level appropriate. Just in case you needed one. Sorry I was not there to help your back. Best of luck. I'll be home in 3 weeks to help out if you need it.
