...and the blue tutu.
Cici is sporting her tutu and leotard for ballet! I took them both out of ballet as not to push them in too many directions when they started kindergarten this year. The ballet classes here drive me crazy. They block off any view of your child while he/she is dancing and won't let you even peak. It's the same for Nini's gymnastics she starting on Tuesday. The blue tutu indicates that she has graduated from 3 and 4 year olds -where they have them wear a pink leotard with a pink tutu! I have a cute litte video of her dancing - but I couldn't get it to download.
I am happy to announce that I made it to Thursday this week -getting up every morning before the girls go to school and running or walking. Monday I walked and ran, Tuesday I walked, Wednesday and Thursday I ran both days. Thursday afternoon, however, I realized that my body was not taking too kindly to my new exercise. I was diagnosed in 2003 with something called Myofasical Pain Sydrome - basically a fancy title for lots of pain in certain areas of your body and no real way to overcome it. I haven't noticed it much lately, but Thursday, I realized that my recent activity had caused my body to become tense and I've been dealing with the inability to sleep well, nausea, and lots of pain and stiffness in my back and neck. Anyway, it's not much fun - but I'm hoping that if I continue to exercise, my body will adapt and not ache so much.
My goal to organize and gain order in our house and household is going well. We took about 15 bags (including the 5 bags of toys) today to donate! It was such a great feeling! I didn't do much on Thursday and Friday because of the pain I mentioned above, but I did sit and get our desk in order. My next goal is to organize my make-up and what my husband likes to call "primping stuff". Any ideas? We don't have storage in our bathroom or room to put anything or the ability to change it, since we are renting. I've been using the top drawer of our dresser in our bedroom - but it just makes a mess. I'm looking around for different ways to organize this clutter - what are your ideas?
Thank you to everyone who answered my questions! Have a great weekend :)
