Day is done

Thursday, April 05, 2012

Because I missed two days of work unexpectedly, I ended up working a 12 hour day today. Just getting my sparking done now which is late for me, but still important. Sparking keeps me in check and helps me to stay on routine which I need. It's okay to get off course once in a while as long as you're able to jump right back on without too miuch damage.

I forgot to mention that the hospital food really wasn't awful...in fact...it was quite good!

    I work a 12 hour shift regularly, so I feel you pain! It makes for a very long day.

Sparking if a wonderful thing! I always find the time to do it! I am glad you do too!

Prayers answered

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Thank you Sparkfriends. Andy's heart is in good shape...really good shape actually. The doctors can only conclude that he pulled a muscle in his chest which is what caused the pain and shortness of breath. What a relief.

I feel partially to blame. I'm always trying to keep exercise exciting for both of us. I want us to grow old together. I know there's no guarantee for that. I workout 4x a week, so I asked Andy to think of something he'd like to do and he said maybe boxing. So I found him a chain that incorporates boxing with cardio work. He did the trial class on Saturday and although he got through it, he said it was really difficult. Guess it was too much too soon.

The day started out great and then...

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

I got a call from my hubby's work that he was being taken by ambulance to the hospital for chest pains. My heart just sank. I was just about to work when I got hat call and turned around. The ride seemed to take forever but in reality it was probably only about 30 minutes. When I got there, I was relieved to see that he was sitting up and alert. I prayed on the drive to the hospital that he'd be okay, and he was...so why do I assume the worst???

So they ran all sorts of tests and it turns out his heart is okay. They did jeep him overnight tonight so that they can run more tests tomorrow. Could this all be a fluke? I certainly hope so.

    Yes....I have done it. I got a free session from my trainer on the TRX! It was quite a workout. It is 2 straps that are suspended from a ceiling or high up on the wall! You use your body weight to work out any part of your body basically....you can work your legs, arms, abs or chest. It reminded me of the rings that the gymnasts work on except you are not suspended in the air..you are standing or kneeling ..depending on what part of the body you are using! It'll be a good workout!! Enjoy! It was challenging!! I was sore the next day LOL..that's a good thing for me!

    I have heard of it but also do not know much about it. My gym is thinking of starting TRX classes so maybe I will be able to check it out.

Weekend in review (pictures)

Sunday, April 01, 2012

It's been another jam-packed weekend!! Here's how it all went down. Saturday morning was rainy, but it didn't ruin the birdie watching! Our lawn was loaded with birds. Good thing the kitties are safe inside!


I studied...a lot this weekend...and when I got tired, Bandit read a little for me.


I studied for about 4 hours on Saturday!

On Sunday morning, I taught religious education to my class of 3rd graders. The director gave me lovely tulips which we later took to our daughter's school and planted in the grotto.


I figured...she's going to be there for 3 more years...it'll be cool to come back each spring and see them coming up again.

Here's Karly and her friend Katherine in the grotto...such a beautiful place to be...so serene.


Finally...here we are...the empty nesters.


Well...we're only empty nesters for a couple days and then Karly will be home for Easter break. Whenever she comes home, our house is loaded with kids...it's so loud! But fun.

It's a shorter work week due to Easter...thank goodness! Have a good one!
