I have a new phone and decided to show you my reality in phone photos for a
Wordless Wordy Wednesday. I bought 5 gallons of skim milk tonight. No, I don’t want a cow because that’s not a battle I can undertake. I don’t want to milk a cow but I do wish our milk supplier man would stock the shelves with more gallon jugs. It takes a lot of milk these days to keep our hungry like a pack of wolves boy going.
I look sweaty and cross eyed on this quick snap but it was after working out tonight. And that’s the infamous Michelle the personal trainer who keeps me accountable to exercise with her at least once a week. This is Michelle’s blog debut.
She reassured me I would not be happy with myself if I didn’t keep battling to exercise through this “career transition” I am currently experiencing. We’ve juggled and I’ve still found a tiny window to see her in between kids, career and basketball games. It’s my sanity and stress relief. Michelle moved to the prairie a few years ago from the east coast…and I’m thankful every week she did.
This photo got a bit dark when I was still playing around with my phone. Who am I kidding? I can’t even figure out yet how to check voice mail yet. It’s an iPhone and it’s rather fancy for me. But this photo was taken after church on Sunday. We had the slightest of a dusting of snow. Then it melted quickly for a beautiful day. The girls no longer always go with my matching dress plan for church. And they certainly don’t want ANYTHING in the hair. You pick your battles right?
Speaking of battles…this is what happens when I get behind on organizing in an active child’s room. Miss E is quite the mess maker. I’m always in battle with laundry. Do you see that? It’s folded and in baskets. It’s not put away. But Miss E has definitely pulled out a few outfits to try on during the day. I think every blog needs reality checks from time to time. Ahh…this is my reality and I’m picking my battles these days. Because…if I stress…
too much over the little things I would still be arguing with our 14 year old about putting away the clean pans and dishes. It’s reality. It’s not worth a big battle.
Instead, I am soaking in an evening by a big roaring fire with my feet up drinking herbal tea while my husband works away at the dining room table. I’m home. It’s peaceful. It’s my reality.
Due to lack of time…I don’t have a book giveaway to do this week. I have a stack to giveaway though and I’ll just have to do it on a night when my alarm isn’t going off in 6 hours and 19 minutes. I promise. It’s my reality.
Link up and share your Wordy or Wordless Wednesday…realistic or not. And even if you’re not linking up today, what’s your reality of the day? Keep it real and have a cozy and peaceful day!
I worked out with my trainer today as well, but I never sweat like that 🙂 Probably should LOL
I would hate to have to buy all those half gallons. More often than not, we get a half gallon container and it leaks from the bottom.
I am wondering what the girls’ expressions are for.
My reality today….kids off to school, going to spend a little time with the hubs this morning before he heads to the airport. Destination FL for work for four days……yea, i know right?! Not fair. 🙂
I know all about battles these days. lol. And good for you for getting a trainer.
Oh, and congrats on the new phone. You’ll love it. Is it the 4?
Happy WW! Have a great rest of your week!
your reality, although hectic, sure sounds like it has more perks these days, being home! 🙂

My reality today…I have a little girl that looks like a smurf from the blue marker on her face that won’t come off and my hubby just called to say a tire fell off the tractor while feeding cows and the other tractors won’t start cuz it is minus 30 degrees out. Gonna have to do something special for him to put a smile on his face.
