Another Monday...

Today is one of those days where every task feels painful and monotonous. Do I really need a report to track someone else's job in another department?!? Apparently I do and I can't tell you how excited I am to add this to my monthly round of "to-do's." I'm pretty sure I've eliminated at least once tree species in the volume of paper used to generate these stupid reports that I'm pretty sure no one reads. The saving grace to all of this is that I had a long weekend (filled with work and cleaning, but I was home in shorts nonetheless). I took Friday off to run my kids to all their doctor's appointments. I know someone else is capable of taking them, but I like to be there if I can.

My son saw an allergist to find a way to work on all his food and environmental allergies. My little man endured a massive scratch test on his back to see if he's made any progress and to detect any other allergies we weren't aware of. He was a rock star and was super disciplined in not itching the heck out of his back. I love our pediatrician, but I found there really is a difference when you see a specialist. They offer a great many more options or suggestions on how to approach the food allergy dilemma.

Several hours later, my daughter was next. She was so proud she was 40 pounds! I don't know the last time I was as excited to get on the scale. I will say, seeing what 40 pounds looks like right in front of you is a moment of clarity. It's hard for me to believe that I currently have a 6 year old stuck to my ass holding me down. No wonder I'm tired everyday!

I ate healthy today. I'll try and show the treadmill who's boss tonight. Baby steps...
