Six Kid Chaos*

Single Dad raising kids, and my passions in life.

The Monday Morning Blahs…

It’s another snowy day here in Barrie, calling for continual snow until about 1pm today and that mean lots of shovelling for me.  I enjoy the workout aspect of snow removal but when your entire body is tired and sore, well it’s not something that I am looking forward to at all today.

I’ve challenged myself to a 100 straight days of running, and yesterday I hit the 7 day mark.  It doesn’t seem like a lot in the grand scheme of this challenge but it is the most consecutive days that I have ever run.  I am also starting training for an Ironman 70.3 race this summer which also requires a lot of swimming and cycling as well.  The combined toll of these three disciplines along with being a single father of four children, well I always have A LOT to do.  Cleaning the house, grocery shopping, laundry, paying the bills, etc..

It takes a lot of mental energy to keep all this up as well, add on the issues that you will always have raising teenage daughters.  Wow, it’s been a tough weekend that has left me physically and mentally exhausted.  Waking up this morning, I didn’t sleep very well and am not sure how I am going to get through what today has to offer.  Continued web site creation for a startup baking company that I am trying to launch, based on Sugar Cookies.

North West Bakery – homemade Sugar Cookies made with love proudly serving Simcoe County and the Greater Toronto Area.

The snow is still falling…

As I type that a smile washes over my face.  I know that I can do this, I know I can take care of everything that needs to be done today and when my head hits the pillow tonight I will have completed a lengthy to do list and a warm sense of satisfaction will wash over me as I drift off to sleep.

Afterall, as a fellow blogger said this morning, “Do sharks complain about Monday? No. They’re up early, biting shit, chasing stuff, being scary. Reminding everyone that they’re a fucking shark.”

Thanks Amy, Amy Bishop Fitness I choose to be a shark.
