I did fail in my mini-Challenge last week--my midnight bedtime. I was just all off on my hours, and even after issuing myself the mini-Challenge, I couldn't manage to be in bed before midnight. Usually it was around 12:30am, but there were a few 1am nights as well. I'm going to try again this week, because I love sleep--I'm not sure why I torture myself with such a late bedtime. I need to get myself to bed earlier, because one of the solutions I'm considering to my exercise class dilemma is waking up crazy early to fit in a workout before Dan goes to work. The exercise classes here where we live have early morning sessions--just not Zumba or step, which is such a bummer. They offer early morning spinning--I have never tried spinning before, but that would be an option to change things up a little bit. I also took the plunge yesterday and purchased a swimsuit for lap swimming, and some goggles--so I can get up early and go to the indoor pool here to do laps. The spin class is Monday and Wednesday mornings, so I could do laps on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. I'm not sure how I feel about the early mornings (again, I am not a morning person), but if I can get myself to bed at a decent time, it shouldn't be too bad...I hope!

Not too much going on this week, other than chugging along with the potty training for Alex. We are making progress, but it's still the constant run to the bathroom, and the occasional accident. He seems very proud of himself, though, so that is a great thing! It's so much easier now that he's not being so stubborn. We even ran errands yesterday evening and went out to dinner, and he stayed dry the whole time! Very exciting stuff. :) Abby has the day off school today, so I'm just monitoring craziness with all three kids. I need to get cleaning during naptime today (I type this to motivate myself...not because I think you care)--even though it's not Tuesday (my bathroom cleaning day on the schedule), the bathrooms desperately need my attention! My goal is to get this house back in shape ASAP--I slacked off on some of the cleaning last week, so now I need to catch up. A housewife's work is never done!
