I’m really glad the weekend is here, I need it. I need the down time. Yes, I know I’m such a wimp, I’ve only worked three days this week- outside the home, but as most mothers know the real work is at home not the job you get paid for!! So between my paid job and my unpaid job I’ve been going going….gone…
Last night I baked a carrot cake for my boss who has a birthday today. To be honest, it’s Friday and I think it’s nice to start the weekend on a sweet note..hahaha..and her birthday just gave me an excuse for making a cake without having to come up with one myself!!
I love carrot cake and I’m assuming the carrots will count as the healthy part of this cake!! I’m not worried I’ll eat too much of this sinful pleasure as I’ll be sharing with 17 kids and at least 5 adults if not more, depending on who comes in from other departments..hahaha..but a little taste is better then none.
I’ve been good about working out this week. I’ve been at the gym twice and walked the dogs every day in the woods for an hour, even the days I was at the gym! I’m so sore in my body, I think if I could just learn to keep it going and get past this initial soreness I’d be fine. But I am known for starting strong and then falling off and every time you start up again it’s really hard and your body lets you know it!
Working with kids is exercise in itself…they are constantly busy and always on the move…you just never know what they will think of next. Yesterday we took a small group of children (8 total) to a place in the woods not too very far from our daycare/preschool but far enough for the kids that they really felt they were on a hike…they’ve set up a Lavo which looks exactly like an Indian Tee-pee, hope I spelled that correctly and if I didn’t I hope you had a good laugh (laughing is healthy).
Inside this lavo they have made a BBQ pit with a grill on top, so we grilled hot dogs and played in the woods and then we heard sheep bells so we went looking for them and found a whole flock who quickly ran when my noisy little group arrived giggling and talking as they do!!
Hope everyone will have a great Friday! I’m off to work and in the supposed words of Marie Anoinette (later proven that she did not actually use this quote) “Let them eat cake!”
Until next time my friends…
