A mixed up day for me

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I experienced some problems this morning when I got home from work. I tried to email one of my son's teachers and my email wouldn't send so I spent about 30 minutes on the phone with cox cable trying to trouble shoot the problem. I couldn't even reply to the email with my I-phone so I'm not sure what's going on. Don't have time to even check it tonight before work so I'll have to look into it more tomorrow.

As a result, I got to bed late and then woke up at 2:30 thinking it was Wednesday and got up and headed to school to get the boys, only to realize when I pulled up in the parking lot and noticed that there weren't a bunch of people in cars waiting for their kids to get out. Wednesdays are early dismissal days and the kids get out of school at 2:50 instead of 3:10. I looked at my phone and saw it was Tuesday so I headed back home and went back to bed. I then slept until nearly 6:30! I finally got over 5 hours of sleep - it's been a crappy week for me in the sleep department.

I did the Day 3 video for the January jumpstart challenge - a 7-minute Arm Shaper Video with dumbbells. I dug my dumbbells out of a closet instead of trying to use my resistance bands. I realized that I've had my dumbbells since 1979! I remember buying them the summer after my freshman year in college and wanting something that I could use in the house besides a jump rope and pushups and set ups, just about the only things that I remember doing back then for exercise if I wasn't running, playing a sport or riding my bike.

After I did my video I went out and walked for 30 minutes and covered 1.78 miles. It's 36 degrees right now so it was pretty warm compared to what it's been lately.

    Hi Kelly, you did have a mix up day! I spent all morning looking for DD's certificates that she needs for a course, getting myself so frustrated. I had her check her room and in 2 mins she said no not here. Gave up went to work, then started looking again last night with no luck. She breezes in at bedtime saying she found them earlier in her bedroom. Grrrr. Have a great Wednesday now it is here!
