It's month end reporting this week. So I'm on here right before my reports start (they are running right now). I've been a bit behind in tracking other goals, reading blogs, and updating my spark team comments & what not. I am hoping to check in at least twice a day to track food/exercise and a few comments, however if you don't see me, it's because I'm hiding under a ton of excel spreadsheets & access databases! lol.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I'm writing this to spark myself into feeling better.
Today I got all the work done I needed to in order to prepare for month end next week. I also put out a few fires at work and assisted others.
Today I dragged the treadmill upstairs from the basement using my arms, not my back. It felt great to feel strong! I also tossed the twin boxspring downstairs in order to put the treadmill in the spare bedroom upstairs. I have started the cleaning process in the spare room and will be excited to redo that room and claim it for myself this weekend.
Today I stayed in my calorie range.
Today I jogged while waiting for the dog to do his business.
Today I made my daughter feel safe, loved, and happy.
I can't remember what else at the moment. :)

I really need advice because I am very upset and very close personally to the issue, so I'm not sure if I'm thinking rationally. It's been a stressful week for us - after 90 days my husbands new job is now firing people, and put him on a horrible schedule where he will be home on Thursdays and Fridays - working all other days of the week. When his schedule switches he will be working 10 days in a row without a day off. Becca is having issues at school again with some girls and guys calling her names and saying mean things. Her friends also told her that the boy she dated (her first kiss, nothing else though, she broke up with him) is telling lies about her to other kids. So it was very overwhelming for an already emotional child.
SO now the point where I need YOUR ADVICE:::
There was a substitute driver on the bus yesterday. When they were nearing our drive, Becca told them where to stop. This boy, who is 6'1" and looks like a young Bill Murray with Acne, started yelling to the bus driver, "keep going, this isn't a stop". My daughter told him to "Shut up" and stood up and walked to the front of the bus to make sure the bus driver would stop. She got out of the bus, and walked parallel to the bus to get the mail. The boy spit out the bus, hitting her! I am SO DISGUSTED! She called me in hysterics, sobbing. I instructed her to take a shower and call me when she's done and I'll come home. So I took a late lunch, drove home, logged back into work, and then consoled her. I got her to laugh a few times, cry a few times, and hugged her a lot. On the way home I called the Vice Principal. She talks with Becca often since Becca does have a lot of emotional issues dealing with school. Well, she said that she will handle it tomorrow (today). When my husband got home, I told him what happened. He told me to call the school today and find out how they are handling this situation. If they do not kick him off the bus for the remainder of the school year, I'm to take Becca to the police station and press charges for assault. Becca went into the Vice Principal this morning and filed the incident report. I called the VP this morning and asked her what disciplinary action are they taking. She replied she's not sure yet, she needs to talk with the Principal. She said it will either be 2 weeks suspension, or 2 weeks kicked off the bus. I told her how my husband wanted me to go down to the police station and file a report. She said, "Yes, you can do that, what he did is considered an assault." So I'm going to talk with Becca when she gets home (I am working from home today, in case something goes wrong at school I can get there quick). I also have Chris calling me on his next break at work to discuss his thoughts. I am going to go to the police station with Becca and file the report when she gets home. I just need help on how to deal with the emotional part of this with Becca!!! I need your thoughts!
I'm really trying not to eat the entire house while dealing with this stress. I ate part of my lunch for morning snack.. lol. I will get some celery and carrots to mindless munch on I'm going to try exercising a bit too during downtime. thank you so much for reading and responding

Sorry I'm not here much this week. By the time I get through my work day, and then family stuff, and then logging the food & stuff, I run out of energy! I'm exhausted. I'm headed to bed right now and hoping my nose stays clear enough to sleep through the night. I wish this weather would make up it's mind!!! It's icy outside right now. the deer, squirrels and birds were trashing my bird feeders (they broke/ate one) in preparation for this weather. I should always listen to them, they seem to know. Here are a few "bird brains" with the feeder they broke!
Here's to a better tomorrow!!!

I have had all my bloodwork done - that's ok. I do have some allergies acting up - which is normal. I have MS so fatigue comes with the territory. My husband figured out what's going on with me though. I'm depressed because my legs have been so sore and in so much pain, weird pain. Not pure aching pain or dull pain. Like a burning pain along with a feeling that the only way I can describe is rigamortis. Like my muscles are shriveling up in my leg. As he said, there isn't anything I can do about it, so I can push through and feel happy although in pain, or I can give up, give in, complain and be totally miserable! So I'm going to push through and tomorrow I am going to exercise 10 minutes when I get up, and then go for a walk during lunch break, then when I get home I'm going to do a small portion of the workout dvds that I have been doing - I'll start back with week 1 of 20 minutes. If I'm having a particularly bad day I'm going to do the wii fit light aerobics. But I am going to do it whether my body is throwing a fit or not! There's nothing wrong with my muscles or body physically (except MS) so I'm going to push through!!!!
Oh, and my doctors are both aware :) So no worries there! :)
