Morning. Back to school, back to starting the thread. ;)
Hilarie-I love that house too. We downsized to this house & we're so happy we did it. It's so much easier not to worry so much. I don't feel very smart at work today either. I am stuggling...
Lori-Have fun sitting. Hopefully they are all great for you.
Andrea-Have a great time at the zoo! That sounds like a perfect reward for getting chores done. We feel the same way about our house-we'd rather add on if needed-but I doubt that will ever happen.
Wendi-wow-you make me tired. Glad you got a nap in though.
My day has been fine-busy-but fine. Work is harder than it should be today & I've also been working on the laptop while my models run to find plane tickets for spring break. We were hoping they'd drop-but now that we are within 3 months of going they started going up-ugh. So I did it today. It's expensive though!!!! But-my parents are buying this for us as a trip with them & they took my sisters on a European cruise-so I'm pretty sure this is still less than that trip.
Not sure what we're doing tonight & hope to ski tomorrow too.
Wendi, you sure have a lot going on (as usual). That's so awesome that T got an award for his "car"!! A squid, huh?? I thought they were always just cars. Shows what I know! I hope Reconciliation went well today. (I have no idea what that is, but I still hope it went well!)
We're being bad today and not going to church. I was just so tired. I ran last night (after dark) and felt nauseous again, like last time, so I was up late (not throwing up or anything, but I needed to sit upright). So I slept in and am/was a big slacker.
Lori, I hope the babysitting finished out well. I thought it was at church, too. What a great idea to make some extra money by having several kids come at once! I hope your aunt got off okay.
Laura, that's great that you booked airfare. And yay for your parents taking you on this trip!! Did you make it skiing yesterday?
I don't know what we'll do today. DH works until 3:00. I need to go to the running store to discuss some issues with my new shoes - and ask about the nausea while I'm there. And maybe run another errand or two.
We sit in little rooms (usually) and tell the priest our sins and he absolves us. Poof! No more sin. :) It is one of the seven sacraments we receive. Think of "A League of Their Own" where the team is in church, you heard a big bam. Then you see Rosie O'Donnell whisper to someone, "It's the second time he dropped that Bible since she's been in." :)
Otherwise all is good here. I might take a nap, maybe organize in T's room a bit. I am taking it easy today. Roast is in the crock even.
I know what confession is and all that. I just didn't know what T's official ceremony was today. Does that mean it's the first time he went through that
Today has been a big bunch of nothing so far. Other than getting the girls out for their run. It's been so warm here that we haven't been doing it! (Supposed to be 80 today, and it has been upper 70s all week.) I'm still not sure if they'll continue. Allison whines so much, even though I know it's not too tough for her. If she was out with a bunch of friends instead of mom, she'd keep up no problem!
The girls saw dogs yesterday outside Petco (we were actually going to Staples next door) and now they want a dog. NOW. They asked me about it first thing this morning. DH isn't ready for one, though. On our way back from our "run", the neighbor said we should have taken her dog with us, because her dog is getting old and can't keep up with her anymore. Maybe we'll try that next time. Might motivate the kids to run and fulfill some of their dog cravings!
Wendi-Very cool on the derby car. I'd love to see a picture of it someday if you have a chance. Hope all of the church stuff is going well too. My sister in KC said it was beautiful there on Friday & then changed terribly by last night. Ick.
Hilarie-I love the borrow the dog idea. I actually wanted to stop the other day & ask a very very pg lady if I could walk her dog for her once she has her baby if she doesn't have time to get out with him. I've NEVER met her before-but I've seen her walk by for a while. So-I know she lives nearby. But-afraid I'd look like a crazy person if I ever did stop & say that. You know...
Lori-Sounds like a nice relaxing day. Hope you got the sewing machine out too-I love having projects to do.
We skied today instead of yesterday. I mentioned the other day that I felt "nervous" or anxious or whaterver & it just kept getting worse & worse. I felt fine to exercise-but I just couldn't shake this bad feeling & my heart was racing & I was just off. One of our neighbors (who is younger than me by 1 year) got taken to the hospital in the middle of the night on Tuesday/Wednesday & I think that stressed me out too. So-Friday night I couldn't fall asleep & finally did-but woke up about 1:30am feeling rotten. I was 99% sure it was stress related-but partly afraid something bad was happening & finally woke DH. He talked me off the cliff & rubbed my back until I calmed down & my chest felt better & I fell asleep. But as soon as I got up on Saturday it started again. So I went to a walk-in clinic. They agreed that it sounded like stress & my heart sounded fine. I cried talking to the doc about everything that's been going on here & the pounding started to calm down almost right away. So strange how that happened. I spent most of the day just hanging out at home with the kids & by bedtime I felt really normal. We had a great day skiing today & I feel pretty good. There are times when I feel it come back-but I can work through it better now. I think realzing that the ONLY time I can exercise regularly is at 5:30am really bothered me more than I realized. And then I had the meeting for the auction which further complicated my life. The doc said he thinks getting regular exercise will be really good for me & no reason why I should put off doing it as long as I want to do it. So-I'll be going at 5:30am tomorrow. I said maybe I should do yoga instead of CrossFit & he suggested that I do yoga at home during my off days. I really appreciated that suggestion & will probably try to find something on the iPad. He was a great older doc who handed me tissue & just listened. I appreciate that he didn't want to medicate me either-but said if I continued to have problems with this I should contact my primary care doc & discuss further options. So-I'm not telling any IRL people-other than DH. I really appreciate having you all around to blab to because I think it's good for me to tell someone. I just hate feeling like I'm having mental issues at all-you know? Thanks for being there for me!
