Well, it wasn't the worst weekend but it wasn't the best either.
I got very frustrated and sad and mad- mainly because of drama in the family between my sons and then between my husband and me- who is NOT my biggest fan.
On a positive note my younger son Nate went with me both days to see my mom at rehab which was good. She is a little more lively when he is there though she has a new roommate who can't hear anything she says to her AND must have half the population of the town coming to see her every day. It makes it a little awkward to try and have a conversation. The three previous roommates were great so I guess 75% is a good average.
When he goes with me it means that I run out of time to stop and take a short walk which I did a couple days a week last week. Today he went with me because he and my older son were not getting along and he needed some distance. He was feeling frustrated and unhappy- which lead him to want to try Popeye's chicken on way home. Which he did not like- I ordered a shrimp po boy- which I liked but left me with few calories for later.
We came home to more negativity which just got me down- I will be so happy when I am earning my own money again- even though it will not be that much.
Anyway I felt really sad and all I could think of was eating chocolate- Nate brought me a vita muffin top which was good. But I wanted more- ended up eating a small bit of his chocolate Easter bunny and then hot chocolate with marshmallows. I haven't felt that kind of sad eating in several months.
I did finally get up out of my slump and go back to work on laundry- I put in my time on the exercise bike and now I am looking forward to tomorrow.
It is my last week before work starts- I have a lunch date tomorrow with my friend I haven't seen since November and then later in day I meet another social worker to clinically supervise her- which I really enjoy. And in between I will make a reluctant appt with the
dentist. I already have my breakfast and dinner planned to accommodate my lunch date.
Looking forward to a healthy, happier Monday-
thanks for being here Spark Friends!
