I can't say it feels anything like fall here, not yet at least.

Hi all. We're kind of having a "day" here at my house. Verbal arguments, people eating what little lunch food we had left so Megan didn't have enough food for lunch, getting up at o'dark hundred to get Evan to early swim practice, running the forgotten skimpy lunch to school, being 20 minutes late to work. At least the group of kids that come on Friday are easy and work not smoothly.

This might be a little heavy for this board but I need to let this out somewhere but I have a breakdown. I came to the conclusion this morning that my life the way it is, is not working for me. I'm way overweight, all medical indicators point to risk for heart attack and pre-diabetes, my relationships with my children and my husband are broken, I haven't been keeping my word, my house is a mess (partly my fault and larger part my family's part), and my exercise habits are non-existent. Things have to change or some seriously bad things are going to happen. I can't continue to live the way I am right now. I know what I want to change, motivation is another story. Part of me just doesn't care and the other part of me feels bad that I don't care. All I know right now is things just aren't working. I'm so overwhelmed, I don't even know where to start if you do want to change things.

As far as the weekend goes, tonight Megan and I are going up to her horse show in Wisconsin right after school and coming back afterwards, getting home about 10:30 or 11:00. In the morning dh and Evan are going on an overnight Scout campout. They should be back around 12:00 on Sunday. Saturday Megan has swim practice from 11:00-1:00 and then we'll clean up and hang out for the evening. Sunday Megan and I may go to church and I have to watch the Bears-Packers game in the afternoon. Maybe I'll work on decluttering the bedroom while then game is on...

Right now I'm going to take a nap so I can stay awake while driving tonight. Hopefully, I'll wake up with a new perspective on life...

Have a great weekend everyone!

Today I took the kids to school, worked out, did my weekly Target run and a run to the big grocery store in the next town over.
