My son, is no happy camper. Every so often kids have days where they just wake up on the wrong side of the crib, and today was his day. Oh boy. I have had a whiny, cranky little trouble-maker on my hands this morning and I just didn't feel it would be right to bring him to the Daycare at the gym (like I do every other morning) because those girls have enough kids to worry about; the last thing they need is my cranky little son, crying his head off for 2 hours. As a result of the previous decision, I was not able to complete my usual, daily routine.
Normally, I'm up as soon as my husband leaves for work (around 6:30am). I put dishes away, fold laundry, catch up on some current events, finish up some reading or homework for school, and by about 9am, my son is up and ready to go for the day. I get him up, make him breakfast, tinker around on the computer (Youtube, Facebook, Email, etc.), and then I get us both ready and we're out the door to the gym by about 10:30am.
BUT, none of that went the right way today. By a screwy chain of events, I've been up since about 5am and nothing has gone the way it normally does. Its not a bad day per say, but its definitely NOT the normal, functional, productive day it usually is.
On days like this in the past, I would ultimately become very lazy and I would think, " well my whole day is already screwed up, so why not just eat whatever the hell I want? Why not just skip the gym altogether? who cares!?!?!?" This is where my NEW AND IMPROVED way of thinking comes in....
