BuzzFeed's 27 Day Squat Challenge Day 7

It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday! (Throwback much? Hahahaha) Let's see, I've done 30 squats today. Yesterday was my first rest day. Thankfully! I needed it. Let's see what we've got. Yesterday was a rest day, and including today I've done a total of 130 squats. You can see all of my challenge updates here.
We have been working on getting up earlier. We have four people, one bathroom, and four schedules. Mine is late enough that it's not a big deal. But Mishka is technically supposed to be to school by 730am. Bug is supposed to catch her bus at 740am. And Amanda is supposed to be to work at 830am. We don't usually leave the house until 730. Then Bug misses her bus, and we're running around like crazy people trying to get to work in time because we live a half hour away from work. I used to be up and ready before anyone else, but Daylight Savings is kicking my ass. It feels like 530 when I'm waking up at 630 and it feels like 930 when I'm going to bed at 1030. Not great.

I also got sick of my "bank" and decided to go to a real one this morning. I left just enough in the account to cover the payment for my rental and pulled the rest out. I had a pre-paid debit card that I got from my job at the spa. It was fine for a while, but it's obnoxious. I can't use it for so many things because it's prepaid and if I need to put money on I can't. So I dropped Amanda off at work and went straight to Liberty Bank and opened a new account. For the third or fourth time. I had a savings account with them in elementary school. They started it for me at the school and gave me money to put in it and then we saved pennies for years and deposited them randomly. But by the time I was starting eighth grade I only had like $75 and I took it out to buy clothes for school. Then I tried twice more to keep an account going and had them both close due to no activity. So here we go again. But I got the direct deposit forms so I can have my money go right into the new account.
Yesterday was such a relaxing day. Ha. No it wasn't. It was a rest day as far as squats go but it certainly wasn't restful. Between work and dealing with the kids it was as stressful as it normally is. I wonder if I'll actually get up before my last alarm goes off tomorrow......

Check back tomorrow for my day 8 update.
