Plugging away and getting some things done.
When was I happiest yesterday?
When did I feel the best?
I was happiest the moment a DH walked in the door. They are all home now and it feels marvelous. Talking, crawling all over each other on the bed, stealing bites of each other's food, comparing notes for how life is going. Listening to each other. They are blessed. So am I.
I felt best... I can tell you I had some terrible moments yesterday physically but best??? maybe blogging here. Mmm.
So, guests are gone and were great, interesting and not too difficult. I picked up my DD and we managed to get in before midnight but she had preparation to do for her interview. Even after she had got to bed I could not sleep. You get to a point where all you can do is not enough and there is nothing more you can do. But I got up and emailed info to her computer so it would be ready. Tossed and turned and thought of something else and got up and emailed her. This morning discussing the emails en route to her interview I realized we really are different people and MY WAY which may have worked great for me is not her way. She will find her own way. After the interview that became even clearer. She said a wise thing. "The interviewer really can't know your personality in just half an hour. That is what the references are for". It made me breath. Yup, I know that this DD is not good at "selling herself" so she probably came across not so different from everyone else. But when they call the references... I know every one of them believe in her as much as I do and have seen how amazing she is. THAT will come across. So... on to food preparation, cleaning, and getting some exercise! I am sure I cannot be down on the scale. I did not have time to check this morning but my foods, although within my calory range, have been carb heavy. Tonight grilled thin slices of steak on a bed of salad with grilled vegetables. A good balance. I also have done the minimum of exercising for most of this week. But I will keep going. I also need a nap if I am going to be able to drive Monday. My head was so thick this morning I had to go back to bed briefly after setting the table and getting the coffee on! Then a mad shower as the guests were all up by 7:00 am... which meant they were gone early so I could go to the interview. All good.
