Exhausting Success

The first overnight was a success. She called me and was doing well so there didn't need to be a rescue mission. Of course she was working the "want to stay up late and I need a glass of water" thing but that is totally to be expected. She didn't sleep too soundly in a new place, but again, to be expected. I called again at 9 and it sounded suspiciously like I woke my dad up. I picked her up at 7 AM. J laid down for a nap at 10:30 and didn't get up until 2 and that was because I woke her up! Geesh! My parents stopped by this afternoon and my dad said they went to bed before 9 instead of their normal 11. Teee Heee! Now they know why I go to bed early. :-) They probably needed a nap too.

Tomorrow I am getting my feet firmly back on the ground and we're going to be back on a committed schedule instead of having such a relaxed day. It's so easy to just kind of let the day go by and before you know it, it's dinner time. We really got off schedule after the ski trip 3 weeks ago and it's easy to do because J is so far ahead and we do school year round. Tomorrow though it's back to the grind. I've worked in a 15 minute power walk every hour in the hope that some fat will slide off. I'm also committed to opening the Wi i fit box and actually giving it a try. The hateful thing has been taunting me from the closet for 2 1/2 weeks now so I guess it's time to set it free.

I need to get a Wii Fit!

Go J! What do you want to bet she didn't get a wink of sleep all night? At least she stuck it out and had her very first sleepover! Yahoo!

I am so jealous of the Wii Fit. I have been wanting one of those for a long time. :) enjoy!

Wow, what a great day you must have had! And the night too!
And I bet you missed J and woke up in the night to listen for her and even though 7 am is early to go and be picking her up, you secretly didn't mind. Hmmm?

You walk for 15 minutes once every hour? Wow! I walked for 30 minutes on my treadmill. Last Saturday. I was going to try to get in another 30 minutes tomorrow. Somehow, I don't think 30 minutes every 9 days will do me any good. I should follow your example.

Wahhhhhhhh, I want a Wii!!! Maybe if I stomp around, scream, cry, drool, throw all the DVD's around the room, flail on the floor for a while, spit, hit, kick, bite, pinch and make my mommie put me in a hold, then I can get one.

Hee-hee, use RAD logic on myself, lol, to let me go get one.

Congrats on her successful sleepover. She is doing soooo well.

That's impressive... No freakouts on an overnighter. Majorly impressive.

That's what I did with our wii fit... I took it's silent torment before I finally caved in and gave it a whirl.

It's actually fun!

I am glad the sleep over went great! The staying up late and need more kids pull that trick everynight!

I am horrible with a schedule! Horrible. Everytime there is change in our house...(which seems to be all the time these days) it totally throws me off, and takes me weeks to recover! Luckily, my kids still learn despite me. haha
