Not up for blogging much these days. Fibromyalgia pains have returned full force and Rick is out of town, so I'm hanging on by the skin of my teeth. More this weekend.

I keep wanting to update my blog daily and am just not managing to. Oh well. It may be because I am feeling very tired these last few days. I had a very emotional day on Saturday, having to stand up to my mother yet again. But I just can not think it's right for the kids to think that what my mom did is normal. So I can't keep acting like nothing is going on. So I told her how sad we all are about her move and how she hasn't said goodbye to us. I got a scathing email back, I'll spare everyone the details, but I'm keeping it just in case I'll ever feel sorry for her again.

I wasn't feeling well on Saturday either and after the birthday party Saskia and Katja attended at our friends' house, I just vegged out while Rick took the kids to the second birthday party at Build a Bear Workshop at the mall.

Sunday was better. I went running with Kai and Brynna, who has really gotten used to her daily walks and so I had to give her one both weekend days as well. It's always so funny to go on a run with her as she'll pull me along for the first 2 miles or so, but during the third mile, she'll lose steam and gradually it'll get so I pull her along!

I took my camera on our run, but when I got ready to take a picture, I noticed there was no film in it. Duh!!

Kai stopped by a friend's house where he ended up playing and sent me home for his Yu-Gi-Oh cards. I got a good exercise in!

Then Christine and I went shopping and had a great time. We both came home with new clothes, and sometimes that feels therapeutic. Her mother has been a B**** too, and called again last night with some nonsense message. What is it with these mothers???

Today we had a serious workout, a double step class, it was great! Rick stayed home from work as he's leaving for Hawaii very early tomorrow morning and had to finish some stuff up. We had a great Thai lunch together and picked the kids up from school together, with Brynna, of course.

I went to the Container Store and got Katja some new bins for stuff in her room as she promised to clean her room today and tomorrow.

The weather is gorgeous, but we need rain!!!
