It's going to be a long two days.
Last week when Adam Yauch aka MCA from the Beastie Boys passed away, it really put a damper on my spirits. The Beasties have been the soundtrack of my life with Mike for the past twenty years, we even had the DJ play "Girls" at our wedding. When I started blogging I added one of their lyrics that I live by to my sidebar..... "be true to yourself and you will never fall."
I went for a yearly check up with my doctor, and they said my blood pressure was a bit on the high side, which is what my dentist said a few weeks ago. I'm baffled by this, but my doctor said it's related to stress. I've also gained some weight since the marathon (no shocker there) but I need get a grip and start taking care of myself a little better. I'm going to start with sleep. I'm a night owl, love to stay up late, and I'm no stranger to insomnia. I know that if I'm rested, I'm more likely to make better choices overall the next day. So no more watching Bravo TV or an old movie on HBO until 11:30....or 12:00. I'm going to try for 10:30.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mamma's out there! Here I am with my Mom and Dad when I was about 6 months old, I've posted it before, but I just love this picture of my Mom:
And here we are on my birthday with my kiddos:
