Cleaning the Table Makes You Feel Like You Really Have Your $hit Together...

Hello blogging world! Long time I know. My apologies. I took a break. I have a tendency to take on to much and then I feel overwhelmed. I needed a break. No worries we are all truckin' along around here. The terrible horrible 3's have hit. Ugh...I'm over it. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you saw last night's post.
Seriously. Needless to say two little boys went to bed early last night. We all woke up with new attitudes this morning. I have started going to the gym at the butt crack of dawn again. It really frees up my days. I think I am adjusting to my new reduced sleep schedule. I don't feel like I want to pass out today. I have managed to do my dishes, start laundry, get dinner in the crock pot, mop the floor, make lunch and work on my TMOMs newsletter this morning. The boys requested "Mac and Cheese" with "vegeables." I was happy to oblige. Naturally #3 got half his lunch on my freshly mopped floor. #2 got half his lunch all over the table. Not wanting to feel left out #3 had to dump his plate on the table. Now...normally it may be several hours (if at all) before I get the table wiped off after lunch. Breakfast. Dinner. To be honest there are some days the breakfast is still on the table at dinner time. But today? Today I got the table wiped off right after lunch. The Dudes even put their own dishes in the sink. Winning! It's those moments that really make you feel like you have your $hit together.

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 …

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house.
"I cleaned my room damn good."
Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious.
A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies.
We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her.
Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally to b…

Day 2....

Day 2 was not without some frustration. We started the morning off strong. Owen peed in the potty first thing this morning. Carter waited over an hour and then pooped in his underwear. However, sometime this morning Carter got it. He started peeing in the potty. There were even times he would tell me he had to potty and we would go in and he would sit down and pee. He had three accidents all day after he pooped in his pants. Proud Mama over here! Owen had a lot more accidents today. It frustrated me because he did so good yesterday that today it just kinda went down the drain. I think he turned it into a game and I'm not real sure what to do about that. He would say about every 30 seconds he had to potty. We would go to the potty and nothing. He would sit there and giggle, laugh and wiggle around on the potty. Then he would get up and go play. A minute later he was back on the potty. Ugh....it was exhausting. And majorly frustrating for me. He only peed in his pants a few times t…
