Monday Monday Monday

Ack!! It's Monday! What the What?! I'm not sure where last week went. Hope everyone out there had a fantastic holiday. I had big plans to write a Thankful blog last week. Didn't happen. In fact I had 3 or 4 blogs written in my head. Those didn't happen. I could go and write them all and inundate everyone with 5 blogs tonight. I won't do that to you. I will just try to write the blogs as they come to me. It may happen.
Just to catch you up on this crazy Mayer clan.
Mr. Mayer: The Pokes had their first loss recently. How do you think he's doing? Bedlam is this week. Check in with me on Sunday.
Shrek and Donkey: Little bit of a runny nose but croup free. Both are running every where. Talking, dancing and causing mayhem daily. We tried the one nap thing again today. I really wanted to go to spin class this morning. I laid them down at 11:30. They slept for about 2 1/2 hours. Great. Around 4:30 this afternoon they lost it. Bedtime came early. I guess they still aren't ready. Bummer for me. I really like that 10am spin class.
Diva: Her fever broke. HALLELUJAH!!! I only had to take her to urgent care 2x and her doctor 2x. The final time at urgent care they did all sorts of tests. Diva functions better if I can really prepare her and let her know what is coming her way. They said 'Lab Work' so I started prepping her. They started with a flu test. I told her it might feel funny and she probably wouldn't like it. After the nurse was done and Diva was in tears she sits in my lap and says "That didn't feel funny. That hurt!" Yes it did baby girl. Yes it did. Then they took "pictures" of her lungs. Come to find out she had some pneumonia in her right lung. Then they had her pee in a tray. She thought that was gross. Then came the dreaded lab work. Aunt Bets offered to come and help with this. I was tempted to let her. I did not like it. It took me and a nurse to hold her down. Then she carried on for 2 days about how bad her arm hurt. I may never get her back to urgent care. However~ thanks to the marathon of tests Diva DOES NOT have mono (whew!). She did have pneumonia and a severe bladder infection. After 24 hours of antibiotics that dang fever broke and she has not stopped since then. She missed 6 days of school and had a Thanksgiving break. We had a lot of togetherness.
Thanksgiving came and went. Watching the parade was a good time. I asked Diva what she was thankful for. Her response~ "Turkey." Anything else? "Nope. Just turkey." Nice. I'm winning at this parent thing. I tried to tell her a few of the things I was thankful for and she rolled her eyes and said "I know...you are thankful for me, my brothers and I guess Dad." Well, those are three of the things I'm thankful for. Thanks for humoring me kid.
So the weekend proceeded to rush by with the same speed as last week. We went to my in laws for the weekend. They have a pretty house with lots of breakables. I was convinced that the Dudes were going to break everything. They tried hard. But, 8 adults were able to keep up with them and take the breakables and hide them in the nick of time.
Which brings us to today. I'm exhausted. I kept dreaming I was pregnant with my second set of twins last night. Mr. Mayer was having a nervous break down and was in patient and I was having to have the babies by myself in a grocery store. Weird.
I took these pictures last week and wanted to share. The dudes l-o-v-e getting to sit on the couch. Here is a moment with Shrek and Mr. Mayer. Precious.

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

I See The Light....

When I left you guys I had just taken a new part time job! Happy to say that is going well. I started the week of Spring Break, so that was not the best timing, but it worked out. Then the kids were in school for a week and our Oklahoma teachers walked out. Thankfully #1 cheers at a gym that is full of teenage girls willing to babysit. I won't lie. There have been some growing pains, and I still haven't figured out how to keep up with my laundry. There are days I work well past 2pm and the kids beat me home from school. Every highway in TTown is under construction and getting downtown to work by 8am is nearly impossible. I think it is understood by my new employers that I will be perpetually late for eternity because they are never going to finish the construction. But, overall I like my new job. I like being around grown ups, and the extra $$$ is a nice perk.
Spring time in the Mayer house is notoriously a busy busy time for us. We have millions of end of the school year thin…

That's Gonna Hurt

HEY Y'ALL!!!! It's me again!! hahahahaha....life has a way of zipping by, doesn't it? Life has been going by at warp speed around here. I'm still working. I only regret it twice a week :( I would by lying if I said I didn't miss being at home. I miss the day to day stuff, and I hate paying a babysitter. It breaks my heart when one of the kids tell me they miss me, or they wish I didn't work. However, the extra income is nice. Seeing Mr. Mayer not as stressed about finances is nice, and I feel like I am contributing.
My main reason for getting a job remains. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. Considering my genetic makeup if that's all that I have, I'm okay with it. I was medicated for a long time. I stopped taking my medications two years ago and have been able to keep a handle on myself for a long time. However, I had a bad month in December. Besides the normal Christmas stress, my wheels were stolen, which added another…
