36 Hours

Captain Morgan and his brother
In the past 36 hours lots of exciting things have been happening at my little insane asylum. I have been potty training the Dudes for a few weeks now. They were doing great at the pee thing. I could not convince them to poop in the potty. I bribed them with everything I could think of. I even promised them I would buy them rocket ships like the Little Einsteins. Ugh...nothing was working. Until yesterday. Owen all of a sudden decided he would go poop in the potty. He hasn't pooped in his underwear once since then. HALLELUJAH!!!!! WHOO HOO!!! He thinks he's a pretty big deal. Me too. I guess I owe him a rocket ship. I'm hoping that peer pressure will get to Carter and he'll catch up pretty soon. Cross your fingers!
Also in the past 36 hours both Dudes have decided they like to take showers. What the What?! Up until last night you would think we were pouring acid over their bodies the way they reacted to showers. Last night their sister got in the shower and both decided they wanted to get in with her. Then all day today they talked about how they were going to take a shower again. Tonight they were so excited to get in the shower. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Do you know how easy and fast it is to give two little boys a shower.
Keeping with the strange and amazing, tonight for dinner Olivia requested...brace yourselves....meatloaf, CARROTS, and brussels sprouts. Now the meatloaf and brussels sprouts didn't shock me so much. It's weird for a 6 year old, but those are some of her most favorite foods. The carrots are what killed me. The child declared 3 years ago she HATED carrots and refused to touch one since then. A week ago she ate one and liked it. Tonight she is requesting them for dinner.
I don't know what is happening around this place, but I like it. I have been a little absent from the blogging world the past few weeks. My mother had a triple bypass last week and things went very badly after that. In the past 36 hours she has made amazing progress and doing very well. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. Also, this week we had our annual elections for my Tulsa Mother's of Multiples group. I was elected President. Yikes! I have no idea what I'm doing.
The way the last 36 hours has gone I may win the lottery or something. Can you imagine?! Now, I need to go buy a rocket ship for a big boy....

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…
