Monday's Mumbling

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

~Eleanor Roosevelt

And now Monday has arrived...
My alarm clock went off this morning - @ 4:30am - which is my bewitching hour for getting up and exercising. It is my "ME" time that I have to make for myself; otherwise this quiet time - time to do whatever I want to do - time for a good long sweaty spin on my stationary bike to refresh my self for the upcoming day - is time that I don't get as the day goes on. However, lately when that clock announces "morning" with the noise of static radio, I have been hitting that OFF button unconsciously. Due to the craziness of my life with all the activities going on, I am sure that the new routine off turning off the alarm by my body is a good message that I need my sleep. However, when I sleep through that alarm I don't get in my sweaty spin and then I become the dreaded "Mean Old Mom"
Any way...alarm went off and I am up and spinning - good start to the day.
"But what day is it?" That is the thought that popped into my head when that static radio noise came on this morning. DH nugged me, after I hit that OFF button, to help me achieve my goal of my early morning "ME" time. But it took me a few moments to figure out what day of the week it was, something that is occuring more and more as I have been working in *The Store* on the weekends. The days all seem to blend together lately. Do you ever feel that way? That no matter what day of the week it is, they all seem the same?
Oh, well...I am up and going - Yahoo!
This week is the last week of school for the boys - hard to believe that on Friday, Robert will have finished his first year of high school and Matthew will have completed his first year of middle school. It has been a wonderful year for both! Yet, with the start of summer vacation in sight, I don't think that it will be any less busy for us all. Both boys have hockey clinics to attend and Robert has some summer assignments to accomplish before the beginning of the next school year for his Honors English class. We are waiting to hear if Matthew will get the summer Jr. Leader camp counselor (volunteer - nonpaid) position he applied and interviewed for...this is something that Robert has done for the last few years but can't do this year because he has aged out. Well, we just take things a day at a time around here.
Well, even though life is busy and quick around here, I did manage to find time to plant my butt and stitch on Saturday evening. Progress is being made on the pineapple (unfortunately my camera was downstairs this morning, so I couldn't get a progress photo taken to show you today). I visited our new Jo-Ann fabrics on Friday afternoon - they opened a new larger one in our city while closing the smaller one down - and got some greenish fabric, which matches the different green shades of the pineapple foliage. I am planning to make the pineapple into a pillow.
It is time to stop all this mumbling and sign off so that I can catch up with all of you out there in blog world. I have skimming through a lot of your blogs, trying to keep up to date on all of your activities and stitching project, but just haven't had a lot of time to comment. Hope that is ok?
Take care, my friends, and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!

I love that quote and it was just the thing I needed to hear. Good for you for taking the time for yourself to spin!
