Just a quick blog..

Saturday, April 16, 2011

First off, forgive me if there are a ton of typos in this blog.. I'm typing on our new iPad and I'm not quite sure it's going to work. The iPad is actually pretty lame. It was part of our photography package so we didn't pay for it, but I'd be pretty p.o.'ed if we had. It doesn't really do much...

Anyway..quick update on this week. My best friend passed away last week and that kind of sent me into a downward spiral. April was supposed to be my month of clean eats, lots of workouts, and going hardcore. Well the death set me back a bit but I kept up as best as possible. The funeral was on Monday so I had to work through lunch all week to make up hours...sucked but better than having to take a vacation day. The rest of the week kind of dragged by in a blur.

Hubby is working out of town this weekend so this morning I got up at 4 to get him to his carpool then came back home and slept until 10. I havent slept that late in YEARS, but I really needed it. I got up and made a protein shake and then cleaned house until 3. I sorted, organized, cleaned, and packed up all day. I ate a quick lunch at 3 and then got back to work. I worked until 6, then did a workout DVD and showered. I ate a light dinner and have been on the couch ever since. Bliss. I took out 6 bags of trash plus tons of random crap, and I have a couple huge bags for donations again. My house is crazy clean and much less junked up now. It feels great. Hubby will be so happy to come home to a clean and organized house. Hopefully we keep it this way forever!

Typing on this iPad is actually really crappy so I'm going to wrap it up. Pathetic blog but I can't handle the typing. I'll be back soon! Promise! Keep Sparkin' friends!!

    I actually read this yesterday, went home, cleaned and toss some stuff out and I feel so much better today. Purging is great therapy! I am sorry for the lost of your friend and I will pray for peace with you and the family.

    I'm sorry to hear about your friend. :( I find throwing out/sorting/organizing stuff helps me when I am stressed or upset, too. xoxo

    I am sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. There is nothing like losing someone close to you. I will be praying for you hun. On the positive that's awesome that you cleaned and organized your house instead of snacking. Well done!

    I know I've said it before, but I am so sorry about the loss of your friend. I think you did great for the week with everything that you have had to cope with. Great job on cleaning out the house, I had a goal this weekend of getting one of the bedroom upstairs somewhat organized and the only thing I have completed is packing away a bit more of clothes Cale has outgrown. Pathetic! Thinking of you!!!!!
