Littleman left today to go to his grandparents. I miss him already. It is harder for me to leave him with fs’s (former spouse’s) parents than it is for me to leave him with my parents, but it is important to me that he has a great relationship with all his grandparents and I want to do all that I can to make sure that happens. So, he is with them on the other side of the state for a week. I am here. Did I mention that I miss him already?
At this point I have two choices.
Choice #1: Feel sorry for myself, sit around the house, mope, eat food that I know is bad for me, continually check my news feed on Facebook and think about how everyone else’s life is great compared to mine.
Choice #2: Get off my *ss and use this opportunity to do some things I never get to do – like exercise.
Not gonna lie, at first I picked choice #1, but I took a nap and now I am over it. It doesn’t take me too long, but it is a process.
Now I pick choice #2.
I have the chance to exercise every day for a week! A whole week! Now I am not ready to start training for an Iron Man or anything, but if nothing else I will be out walking. Don’t care that it is 80 degrees outside. My cousin who is deployed to the middle east somewhere is currently in 125 degree heat. I think I can hack 80.
