Five weeks

This week makes five weeks in a row that I have gone to the gym. Just once a week, but it's something. Emma goes to the kid's center to play while I'm on the treadmill. I started out just walking but now I do some running too. I usually walk/run between 1.5 and 2 miles. I would like to go to a yoga class soon, it's free with my membership. Maybe next week I'll make it to yoga.

I'm still not done with Emma's blanket. I have slacked off and I don't know why. I also have a sweater project that has been sitting for a couple of months. I've been working on the sweater the last few days but not making a lot of progress. I am feel a lack of mental stimulation and that makes it harder to concentrate on the knitting. I guess after reading Goodnight Moon 10 times a day and watching Sesame Street my brain has turned to mush a little bit. I need something new to kick start it. Maybe a good book, but I've got a stack of books to read already.

I think I need a night (or a day) off but that seems very unlikely to happen any time soon. I had hoped to get Emma into a Mother's Day out program for 2 mornings a week, but I think my plans for that have been foiled. The church doesn't have anyone to run the program yet and it's supposed to start Aug. 31. If it doesn't work out this year then I'll try to get Emma into a preschool program for next fall.

It's so important to be able to get out on your own sometimes. I hope you find something you feel good about. Our afternoon program just fell through and I am still shedding a few tears!
