stress level rising

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I'm usually quite good at handling stress, but with the crazy things going on lately it's getting difficult.
My mother-in-law is in the hospital with breathlessness and failing kidneys. She starts dialysis today.
One of our kitties has a breast tumor or cyst and is going into surgery today to have it removed and get her fixed at the same time.
With the spouse spending lots of time out and about volunteering I haven't been to the gym since Friday and I'm getting frustrated about it. Even today is supposed to be a gym day, but because he took the cat this morning, I'm supposed to pick her up so we can both get in 8 hours at work. Arrrgh!

If I can't make it to the gym today, I WILL be bringing my gym stuff to work tomorrow to just work out straight from there.

    So what did I do yesterday?
    I picked up my overly happy baby from Daycare.
    I picked up the cat from surgery (everything went well, and she's now resting at home)
    I loved on said cat, and played with said baby.
    When husband got home, I went to said gym and did 30 minutes of cardio.

    Plus! I brought my gym stuff to work today so I can pump a little iron in the on site gym before going home!

    I am sorry you are stressed out. Hopefully things will get better soon. And it is a good idea to hit the gym after work tomorrow if all else fails. Here is hoping tomorrow is better.

    Oh, I am so sorry that you're having a stressful time. It's always so stressful anyway with a new baby, and to have to worry about your mother in law and your kitty as well is just overwhelming, I'm sure.

    I am lifting you and your family up in prayer, and I do hope that you're able to get to the gym soon. Exercise always helps me feel at least a little bit more sane. emoticon
