You can try to hide the crazy....


The problem is, it always comes shining through.

I've discovered the most amazing thing.

I was on my phone yesterday, still trying to learn the new aspects of it all.....

When I ventured into an app that said 'Find Me'.

Thinking it was something designed to find my phone, I happily went into it and noticed I could add 'people' from my contacts.

"Definitely adding [The Spawn]. She gets mad at me every morning when I yell for her to help me find my phone!"

Add!

Started chuckling to myself.....

"I'm going to add [The Mighty Marine]. He's going to be like, what the hell??"

Add!

I was *still* in the app when suddenly their photos appeared on a map.

They had added me....

Only, it wasn't something designed to help me find my phone. It was an app designed to help me find them!

I smiled as my heart skipped beats.

On the map that contained my Mighty Marine, I could see he was in movement. His face was traveling down roads, momentarily stopping from time to time... And there I was, spending my lunch stalking my from 661 miles away.

Creepy stalker.... possibly.

I choose to see it as loving mother who really misses her . Yah. That sounds WAY better. I just need to convince my oldest to get an iPhone, he needs some stalking too...

On the mental health front....

I went to the gym for the first time in a LONG time last night.

Mentally, I felt better nearly immediately. I'd forgotten how much I really liked doing the treadmill and the gratification I would experience when I pushed past a quitting point and finished out a 45 minute walk or 25 minutes on the bike.

I've been battling some depression and anxiety again, it just seems like an unending cycle for me....

The gym time always seems to help.

Happy Tuesday!

    I'm pretty sure the courts don't see it as "stalking" when it's mom following her kids. lol
    Great to hear you're back at the gym!
It felt really good to be back. It's definitely not as convenient for me anymore, so it won't be quite as often, but I'm going to try to get a routine going.

    What happened to the top part of your blog page? We can't leave you private messages anymore.
I know, I'm very bummed about that too. I was alerted to the fact that some of my private messages on there had become visible to everyone, apparently something that's been happening to a lot of us as a result of a recent code change, so I took it down. I'm going to give it a little bit, then add a new private message post. I do enjoy receiving those private messages.

    my kids have that app so they can call me and let me know when their kids will all be here.. I dont have an I-phone mine is a Samsung and with the android OS I don't think it is compatible..

    Good to see you keeping busy, That will be a good thing.
I'd always had an android too.... I do miss some of the ease of using android. I especially miss the 'back button' you could always access at the bottom. I'm finding that I'm really liking some of the features on this iPhone though. In all, I'm not disappointed in the switch.

    Just started back at the Gym after 2 years...amazing how much better you feel mentally.
Isn't it though!?! The good endorphins definitely help me, I always feel a lil bit better once I'm done. It's a feel-good all the way around. Mentally and physically.

So witty!! LOL I'm considering maybe getting a treadmill for my house. Going to the gym for me, anymore, is a lil bit of a hassle. I no longer live near the gym I've been going to and am used to.

It is a great feature! I kind of wish I'd made the switch a little sooner, my daughter has been using an iPhone for years, I could have been spying on her sooner. LOL If it hadn't been for my Marine switching, I may have never made the switch myself.

It does manage to help me feel connected.... And it gives me a sense that everything is ok. I kind of wondered a little if he sits on his phone and watches his sister and I also. LOL
