I did wake up with the alarm this morning. 3 mornings in a row! May seem like small potatoes, but for me it is an effort. 5:45 is early! I'm glad I'm doing it though, as the quiet time is nice. Right now during my prayer time I am reading the daily reading from a One-Year Bible. It is nice to have because if I stick to it, I will read all of Scripture over the next year. Eventually I will probably add some more meat to what I am doing, but for now it is good.
As for exercise, I was not feeling it today. I didn't do my entire course, just a mile and a half or so. My pace was off, I was having a hard time running and I just feel yucky. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I do like getting up early and having showered before the kids are awake. It helps get my day going and we are not running late everywhere anymore. Yea. I know millions of people already figured that out, but I'm a slow learner when it involves giving up sleep.
Trick-or-treating was so fun! Finally the kids (well, the 3 older ones) are old enough to actually enjoy it and eagerly participate. They were all enthusiastic and polite, so what more could we ask for? It was chilly though, poor Princess was frozen in her butterfly costume. But, a chilly Halloween feels better than a sweaty Halloween. Buddy was a lion and received many, many compliments. So, I owe a debt of thanks to my friend who loaned me the costume. Next year I will hopefully have my kids participating in All Saint's festivities and the secular side of Halloween. I would like to teach them what the day is really all about, but still let them enjoy the silliness of costumes and trick-or-treating. I just didn't get my act together this year in regards to saintly education.
We're off to playgroup. Have a great day dear readers.
