Two weeks of crazy...

Monday, January 28, 2013

and now is this the calm before the real storm???

Ugh, you guys have no idea how the full moon hit me last week! I'd say it was one of those rare collisions of choas coming together all at once that hit me in the work - family - extracurricular - school world...and I could do NOTHING but ride the wave until it passed.

emoticon was my face when I ended it and then decided to hide for the weekend!! LOL

Hey, sometimes, S-it happens like that! I don't like it to, but there it is...what are ya gonna do about it? Whine? Naaaaah....what good is that gonna do when you have absolutely no control over a situation?!? But I whine anyway emoticon I try not to, but hey, I am happens! emoticon

So anyway...things here on Spark get uber quiet when things get hairy..I wish there were more hours in the day sometimes, to get to everyone in my sites when I come across them, but let's face it, somethings gotta give...and it's that. I'm sitting in a quiet house right now (I have a sick kid home today) and all I want to do really is take a nap to recharge...but instead, I am taking the few moments to give this quick update so you know that I am alive!

And let's face it, sometimes being absent from something that you KNOW works is NOT a good here I am...checking in, everyday...even if it's just a wee bit at a time. I think if I stopped sparking it would be way worse than stopping my cyclical exercising, which, by the way, should be kicking in aaaany day now...I feel it.

Weird huh? How I go through these cycles? I have gotten used to them now... things get crazy, I stop exercising - even though my brain is telling me to keep going because exercise helps stress - but do I listen? have I learned? nope. Maybe one day! I'm thinking when unicorns come and eat out of my hand on a warm winter's day. That would be the time for SURE! emoticon But I digress...tis how I am made I guess! Better than not exercising at all like BEFORE... ugh...that was a deeeezaaaaster!

Oh good god this IS a disjointed ramble blog...totally not my style.. but now you get how my brain is right now!

There is no pithy lesson here today, there is no rah rah rah sis boom bah either...just little ol' me telling you that I'm AOK and not gone...hey...maybe that is my pithy bloggidy message for today: Don't go away! Stay active on Spark! It's good for you!!!

There! You see?!?! I did it! Whew...thought I was losing my touch there for a sec!

Ok - I just heard the kiddo cough his head off and bark like a seal at the same exact time ...time for Nurse Nightinggale to attend the patient!

    Oh no! Sick child! emoticon
    Hope he feels better soon! I'm sure you're doing an amazing job at playing Mommy the Nurse!
    Glad you decided to write a blog! Not only that, but you showed by example how important it is to stay connected!
    And from the looks of your spark history, you don't have to worry about getting back into the routine of exercising. It is a part of you now, you'll definitely get back into it. Hope you're not stressing over it!
    TRY to get that nap in Annie! Sleep is part of being healthy!!! emoticon
    Enjoy the calm and make the most of it! Treat yourself to a nice long bubble bath and maybe a mani/pedi? You deserve it, Superwoman!

    I swear I just saw a unicorn approaching your house! And it's a nice, warm, winter's day here, too!
    I hear you this morning! Home with two sick kids, trying to put my thoughts in order and struggling to stay connected with SP. Because we know it works, we know we need it, we know we actually want to be here. And blogs like this one, which are human and written from the heart can only reassure us that it's worth every minute of our time.
    I hope your child is feeling better today.

    We all have crazy periods like that when everything gets too difficult. You can't keep up with everyone and everything! You just took a minor detour on your healthy journey. I find the same dilemas also with time. If I am pressed for time, I might not Spark..but will try to keep up the exercise. I also know that a sign of me being stressed out, is that I do not have the energy for Spark!

    I am hoping your week calms down and that your son is better.

    You are right..Keep on Sparking.

    Glad you're still hanging on. Like you said, sometimes you just have to ride out the wave and then begin again.

    Hey Sister! emoticon

    I hear you! Sometimes just getting some words on the ol' blog is the lifeline that keeps you hanging on, whether you have anything fancy or important to say! emoticon

    Good to know you are out there... emoticon

    As folks older than me used to say, "Keep on Truckin'!" emoticon
