Well, yesterday was not the good day I was hoping to have BUT I did get a 20 min weight lifting workout and a 1.25 mile run in 20 minutes.. .so it wasn't all that bad. I also drank about 2 gallons of iced tea... it was so hot and muggy. Today is supposed to be a little cooler, and no rain clouds.

So this weekend is my first 'Gig' playing congas/percussion with Rhythm Asylum. We are playing in 'The Orchard' which is an area fenced off behind the local steak house. It is actually very nice. They have tables, a dance floor and a bar out there... and with it cooling off at night it will be alot of fun. They played there a couple of months ago and the place was packed with over 200 people. I think it will be double that this time.... Tonight we have our last practice before the show, so I have to be on top of it. (It also means an automatic workout tonight! LOL I end up sweating bucket loads because there are eleven of us in a small room off a garage... in about 5 minutes of playing the room hits about 110*F)

Ok.. so most of the snacks are now gone.. either I tossed them or the kids and I finished them off yesterday. (note the reason why yesterday was not a good day for me) Today I have had my bowl of oatmeal and 2 glasses of iced tea. For lunch I am planning a salad with pineapple... and dinner will be something light since I have to go play. If I can just keep my mouth shut between meals, and get in a run.. then I think today could possibly be my 1st good day in over a week.

On a side note, the new 'Mountain Idol' contest has started and tomorrow is my day to go and try out for it. I am a little nervous about it..not sure if I should try again. I love doing it, but it is a lot of time spent in the bar. I have been sober now for 4 years.... I haven't really had a problem drinking water or tea in the bar, but I still feel out of place. I'm a married mom now... not the single bar fly I once was. I don't know, if I make the cut tomorrow night then I wont have to go back until the first night of the challenge, and that is in November. Ugh... I think I will just see how I feel about it tomorrow night.

I think I will get the kids dressed and outside before the sun gets too much hotter. Maybe I can get another workout in mowing the lawn! Ha.

Great pic of your daughter. What a cutie! Good luck with the try out tomorrow. And have fun with the gig tonight. You sound like such an amazing person!

My husband's been sober for 2 1/2 years now-- your 4 years is a big accomplishment. What a gift you have given your girls and family.
