Time Change

Ugh...I finally feel like I am getting adjusted to the time change. I LOVE Daylight Savings Time. I HATE the adjustment period. I hate it even more now that I have kids. I was out of town with the kids during the time change. Not only were we out of our routine but the time was screwing with us too. I think it was noon that Sunday before we managed to get out of our pajamas. That's really not so bad. The really bad part happened two days later. I get up at 4:45am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to go to the gym. I get to "sleep in" on Tuesday and Thursdays. Unfortunately #1 and Mr. Mayer have to be out the door at 7:35 every morning to get to school and work on time. So there really isn't any sleeping in. So Monday after the time change I was up and at the gym at the normal time. Tuesday I wake up to Mr. Mayer saying "OH SHIT!!! It's 7:20!!" Well. crap. I was sleeping good too. So I spring up out of bed and run upstairs to wake the girl up. I burst into her room and start rubbing her back.
Me: Hey. So. We overslept and are running super late. You are going to be late. It's happening. You need to get up and get dressed super fast.
Her: So. I'm not going to get breakfast.
Me: I'll give you a granola bar or something to eat on the way.
Her: Ahhh...why did you over sleep?
Me: Just come on before your Dad gets cranky.
Her: Fine
So, the morning was off to a great start. I run back downstairs and throw a snack in her backpack and sign her daily report. She stumbles downstairs and I throw a granola bar at her. There are some quick hugs and kisses and her and Mr. Mayer are out the door. On time. I don't know how we did it but she was at school on time. Of course I worried about her the rest of the day. Did she get enough to eat? Was she hungry? Was she cranky? Was she having a bad day? Getting into trouble because she was so rushed this morning? I had all kinds of things going through my head.
I was glad Mr. Mayer and #1 were on time that morning. However, it was a school day for the Dudes too. I had some appointments while they were at school. It was a busy day and I spent the entire day perpetually 10 minutes late to everything. I was even late picking up #1 from school that day. I couldn't catch a break. I hate that feeling. It was a very frustrating day. Good news is we recovered and seem to have adjusted to the new time. The one perk to the time change is my kids are all sleeping a little later right now. I'm not upset about that at all.

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine!  She came over today to make some pasta. While s

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken. Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back) Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

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 stre
