2 hours to myself...


So Matt and I applied for a scholarship to the YMCA about two weeks ago. I was really hoping for this 1. So i can start working out and lose the rest of my baby weight and 2. So i could get a break from my baby and some time to myself. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being a mom and it is a blessing that I get to stay home with Andrew, BUT a break is nice every now and then.

Well today I got that break! I worked out and showered all by myself! It was great! I ran on the treadmill, went on the bike and did some of the weight machines for my back (it has been really sore since Andrew has been born). THEN, i took a shower without having to worry if my baby is going to fall off the bed or lay there and cry for 5 minutes!

Praise the Lord for the YMCA and what a blessing this scholarship is! I picked Andrew up just short of 2 hours and he did great. He took a little nap and one of the nursery workers commented on what a happy baby he is! SUCCESS!

I will be definitely be making my Y trips several times a week! :)
