BRAND BALLOT'S TOP 100 MOM BLOGS FOR 2018!!
Hello!! How was it getting back into the swing of things today? Our morning went relatively smoothly. Kelsey headed back to school, but Gianna still has another day off.
Timing couldn't have been more perfect, as we pulled up to Kelsey's school at exactly 7:50am - the time they are supposed to arrive. As my girl was exiting the car, she stopped dead and said - is today Wednesday? I said yes - she said - it's gym day.
Of course, she was wearing her regular school uniform (skirt, blouse and blazer) and guess what? We had to run back home so she could change into her gym uniform.
If you can believe it- we made it back home, she changed and we arrived back in front of the school by 8:07 - three minutes to spare before prayers and morning announcements, so she miraculously would be in class prior to being considered tardy!
While on vacation in the Dominican Republic, me and the girls worked out a plan of action for being that much more healthy in 2019.
One aspect of this will include more exercise and fitness. As a result, Gianna will be joining me daily on neighborhood walks. With all the stress she finds herself under with being in honors classes, I truly believe that the walks in the fresh air, closer to nature will prove beneficial, not only for her physical fitness, but also for her emotional and spiritual well-being.
It also allows for some super mom and daughter bonding time!!
Yesterday, we embarked on our first walk together for 2019. Honestly, walking is not her favorite thing to do, but she is extremely disciplined when it comes to doing something for which she is determined to achieve a certain outcome. And health and fitness is on her radar.
We'll be taking another healthy walk this morning and then my girl has some school work to finish up and Mom has work to do.
Moving right along... In travel news...
For the past few days, I have been organizing calendars from all ends. Home and school calendar, my editorial schedule of articles for ThisIsTheBronx.info, my editorial schedule for Travelin' Cousins and my travel and destination schedule.
Won't I have fun combining everything into one, giant "Elisa Calendar" when things are all completed!!
While I continue to make progress on that new year's project, I wanted to share with you my travel and destination schedule thus far for 2019.
Of course, there are some big holes in it at present, but, trust me, it will fill in as I coordinate more and more over the coming week AND, as the year progresses.
Here's what it's lookin' like right now:
