Exhausting week. I felt out of sorts and just like I shouldn't be doing anything that day. Since I had a GREAT workout on Sunday, I took my time and kept thinking about getting going on my day (my day off, so no need to get ready for work). Later on that day, I found out why I felt like that, got a call from my son that his wife's water broke, and they were in the hospital. They are about an hour and a half from me, so I went ahead and got ready and packed a bag for just in case I needed to stay down there and got my daughter to pack a bag and bring her school stuff (she goes to a virtual public school which is all on the computer) and laptop. We get down there about 4 in the morning, she was only dilated to about 4, so we went to their condo (about 5 mins from the hospital) to take care of their dog. I also cleaned up stuff (they hadn't cleaned up after dinner yet when all this happened) just waiting for that call when she was closer. I finally went to the hospital around 7 and waited, and waited, and waited. My granddaughter, Paisley Brielle, was born at 11:17 a.m. on January 29, 2013, weighing in at 8 pounds 5 ounces and 22 inches long!! After lots of pictures and holding and oohing and ahing by all her grandparents and aunts and uncles, I finally made it back to their condo about 4 and crashed since I hadn't gotten any sleep the night before. Yesterday I spent the day down there visiting some more and getting to feed her and finally came back yesterday and had to work last night. Now today is my birthday, and my other son and daughter are taking me out for dinner.
I've been eating okay since I haven't been eating much (just LOTS of coffee), but my workouts have been nonexistent. I was planning on taking today off anyway since it's my birthday, so I will stay with that and just pickup with my workout schedule tomorrow and do the last half a week of the january challenge.
