Sleepovers

Gosh…I have been on an Olivia roll lately. She's my oldest. We are having a lot of growing up happening around here lately.

She has been doing really well in school this week. After school today we met two of her friends, their Mama's and sisters (6 little girls!) and went and saw Beauty and the Beast in 3D. It was very exciting. Belle is Olivia's very favorite princess. She can recite the movie word for word and sing all the songs. Between it being her favorite movie and getting to eat popcorn and candy and share a drink with me she was in Heaven. At the end of the movie when the Beast fights Gaston all three of those girls were standing up talking to the screen and clapping. It was my favorite part of the entire movie.

After the movie Olivia went home with one of her friends for a sleepover. This is a very big deal. She has never stayed the night with anyone who wasn't related to her before. This was her first sleepover with a  friend. I have been so nervous. Is she having fun? Is she behaving? Is she being nice and not bossing her friends around? Is she going to sleep tonight? During the summer we tried to let her and her cousin Izzy sleep together on an air mattress one weekend at the lake. The girls NEVER went to sleep. They giggled and played for 2 hours until we finally had to separate them. I'm worried :/ Her friends mom has humored my neurosis and answered all my texts. She has even sent a couple of pictures. Those girls are having the best time. Olivia may never want to come home! I can't wait to talk to her tomorrow and have her tell me all about it.

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…
