Hurry up and wait

Saturday, April 20, 2013

I am so tired today. (emotionally and physically) My knee is very sore and not liking me going up and down our stairs tonight. We took the family to Golden Corral to eat with husband's mother and sister. They didn't have anything that my Aspie son would eat. I felt so bad for him. The kids were all excited, because we don't eat out very often. It's too stressful. He finally settled on a few bites of icecream and we got him some McNuggets on the way home. Overall though, I was so proud of him. He started to melt down, but he pulled it together. My youngest was over-stimulated with all of the people (it was extremely crowded!!!) and noise, but once we got her some food she was fine. Her eyes lit up and she got so excited when she saw they had "bwoccowee" and it was plain!!! I was so happy that she was wanting to choose something so healthy! I overate because it was a buffet. However, I tried to overeat on veggies and I didn't eat near as much as I used to! I did eat a blizzard in a waffle cone when we got home, but that was total emotional eating and for yesterday I was okay with that. I am now done with those!

Today was kind of crazy and stressful as well. I thought we had antiquity pictures at 8:15 in the morning. So, I got the kids up early on their day off and got them ready only to find out that the place wasn't open. Oh well. Then I went to an Asperger's Workshop that was absolutely fantastic! It gave me so much to think about. It raised more questions, but I think I have another helpful source to turn to! Yippee!! Then ran home to work a little bit, only to turn around and help my MIL and SIL. Then ran again to do some grocery shopping. After getting the groceries away, we started our Saturday night clean to get ready for church in the morning. I am so looking forward to watching a movie with my husband tonight. I don't think I'm going to work out because my knee is aching pretty bad.

I've got a pretty busy week planned and I'm not sure how it's going to work. I've got to get the house very clean because a friend and her 4month old will be coming to eat dinner with us on Tuesday. I will be watching her son on Saturday from 5-5. Then Wednesday is church until late, Thursday will be dinner with one of my husband's friends. Then I finish getting ready for babysitting on Saturday. Even as I write this, I keep thinking of more stuff that is popping up this week. Oh well. Time for me to start decompressing!

Have a great night SparkFriends!

    You are managing everything pretty well, it seems to me. It's a good idea to rest that knee. I hope it feels better soon.
