It has been an adventure, exploring all the cool crap it can do.
I also blame the weather. Clouds make me sleepy.
But mostly, I blame a big, gigantic dream swirling around in my head.
My business is going through some changes--very good changes, but changes nonetheless. Changes that require thought, planning, dreaming.
When I have a lot on my mind like that, I tend to retreat. I usually beat myself up for it.
But tonight I realized something. What if the slothfulness is just part of my process?
In order to create something amazing, maybe what I need is downtime. Thought time. Processing time. Dreaming time.
Time's up. I have a meeting on Friday to prepare for. I have a dream to sketch out. I have a business to plan, a business to build.
It's gonna be awesome.

62,369 steps last week!
Wasn't sure how it would go. Spent 4 days in Wisconsin. Dancing for 6 hours on Saturday night really boosted things. :-)
I noticed this morning whilst in the shower that my heels weren't hurting. Is my plantar fasciitis getting better due to all the walking?

Stats for Monday:
Water: Guzzled it
Food: Not great. Ate out twice--lunch at Jimmy John's (was at a client, it is within walking distance); dinner at Don Pablo's (my fav place to eat alone, Mondays are usually my only evening "off" from the kids so I took advantage)
Overall, did well.
Tried refrigerator oatmeal. Supposed to be eaten cold. Nope. Going to try and warm it up a little.
Finally gathered all the supplies to make the following:
frozen chicken burritos
soup in a jar
green salad with chicken and chili lime vingegarette
Plan is to put this stuff together tomorrow and get my kitchen in order.
Now it is MEA which means kids, outdoor fun and no structure! Can I survive? Stay tuned.... :)

Last fall, I wrote a post about attracting the wrong types of guys. You can read it here.
As you know, I have quit dating. This is a good thing.
That doesn't mean that I don't find myself having moments of loneliness. During one such moment earlier this week, I started thinking about all that I have and how I tend to focus on the one thing I lack.
Yes, I am single. I am not in a romantic relationship with a man. But that doesn't mean I am alone!
I have attracted the most awesome group of friends over the past few years. I am only alone when I choose to be. And because most are all raging extroverts like me, I am very rarely alone!
If it is true that we attract what we put out there, I'm liking what I'm putting out there when it comes to friends. I can honestly say this is one area of life where I am nailing it.
I feel like I have authentic, vulnerable, honest, REAL friendships with these people. They are there for me when life is fun and easy and they are there when things stink. They are willing to go along with my last minute schemes and happy to hang out and be still.
I may not have a man in my life, but I have a network of friends that almost make that deisre disappear. Almost. :)

When my kids were each born, they both got a CWC shirt. Each year, I take a picture of them in that shirt next to the door of the cabin.
It is so wonderful to look at all these pictures together and see how they have grown!
Also, we figure Ethan has maybe two more years in his until it becomes a belly shirt.
I envision Ethan holding his up to himself when it doesn't fit anymore and the kids handing down these shirts to their kids someday!
