What a week it was!!!

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Well, I survived the week!! Went to PA on Sunday and came home Monday night. The kids were good but they were wired!!!!!! Of course, movers were there, boxes everywhere, a mess! I got home about 10:30 Monday night. Molly, Tim and kids didn't get here until late afternoon on Tuesday. Molly and Tim headed to new house while I kept kids on Wednesday. The rest of the week is a blur!! Kids here, I'm there. Crazy!! Everyone getting cranky due to lack of structure and sleep. Of course, the adults were the crankiest!!
Hubby left for CA on Wednesday (what a convenient business trip that was!) So I soldiered on alone. My birthday was Saturday so my son, girlfriend and I headed to the new house. We all went out for dinner (I paid emoticon) and back to Molly's for cupcakes (son's girlfriend's hobby. YUM!) Had a great time and it was wonderful to have everyone together for the evening and then everyone could sleep in their own beds!!!!
Went to doctor on Thursday. He wanted me to wear the Holtor monitor for 24 hours. I went back on Monday and got that. Returned it today. Had some episodes but nothing very severe. Oh, well. I just want an answer--worry or not worry???
Even with all of this going on I am pleased with my exercise. The weather was nice so I made sure I stayed outside with the kids running and playing. Just the exercise I've been doing made a difference in my stamina and ability to keep up with them! WooHoo!!!! Made pretty good choices all week for eating (sometimes it was just picking the best of the bad that was available!) Feeling good!!
So fun---Molly and kids stopped by to visit this morning!! I'm going out there in the morning (about 20-30 minute drive) to watch them while Molly goes to preschool meeting. This is good!! This is very good!!!!

    Lordy. LOL. Your life is way too chaotic for women our age as I'm sure your body well knows. LOL. I tell myself this every day over and over and over again - that I have to have some rest - but myself doesn't get any. LOL. No wonder everyone is cranky at your house.

    Can either of us hope to have a rut soon???? LOL.

    Happy Birthday, GF!! I hope you bought your self a good meal. LOL.

    Sounds like you are having a wonderful time Beth even though it has been extremely busy. You are doing terrific in your eating and exercising, woohoo. I had to laugh at your surprised "face" about paying for your birthday lunch. My kids would do the same. LOL Happy belated birthday my friend!!!

    Life sounds like it's getting real busy for you, which is a GREAT thing! I'm convinced that the more busy and varied your life is, the more it keeps you young and on your toes.

    Beth this sounds so positive. Way to go for you. Maybe it was a good thing DH was away on business. That way you were able to make all your own decisions with the children. When he gets back he can take over for a bit and you can get back to your Strenth training.
    I am just so glad it turned out well for all of you.
    I realise it was hectic and noisy and tiring but I am sure you bonded with them already. How nice to have them so close by. Lucky you, enjoy them they just grow up too fast for my liking. I want them to slow down a bit so I can get to see them. HUGS GREAT NEWS Pat in Maine. xoxoxo emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
