This Weeks Wednesday Weigh In Plus Forgiveness
Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Well, since posting my Friday Fitness blog, things have gotten a little crazy. One week ago today I posted my normal blog plus about needing to schedule a nervous breakdown...lol. Well that is still in the making. Hoping for Saturday to be the day to do it ;) Friday evening, had planned on spending the night with dd2...actually, the lil man...lol. All was going good, then my son called...no electric....wha???!!! Uhg. I guess they kinda like to be paid. Yes, my idiot self forgot to pay the already late electric bill!!! Already passed their normal business hours, there was nothing to do but wait until Monday. So at 8:30 at night, i am running home to get all the food out of the refrigerator and freezer and take over to dd1's to store... mind you, this was now heading toward dark and i had a sciatic nerve that was going crazy!! Nobody to blame but me though...so finally at about 10pm i am pulling back into my dd2's driveway. Saturday was busy with a family picnic and cooking, then off to see my dd1 sing at a coffee shop across town. Home late again and no work out...but eating was pretty good considering the family picnic. On Sunday my lil lady was sick, so i went and worked out and then back to dd2's to babysit lil lady while her parents and brother went to church. Got some cleaning done for her while lil one slept. The afternoon was busy with errands and such, then back to dd2's where i was up late talking to them. I think lil man and lil lady got quite use to having grandma there...lol. On Monday morning i was out the door early for a quick workout since sciatic nerve was still being a pain...literally...uhg! Then to work, electric company called and all systems a go... which was good since i had an appointment for a friend to come over to my house to do my hair...lol. Went to bed right after that. Woke up Tuesday morning...uhg...sick...NOOOOOO
... yes...lil lady was kind enough to share her germs with grandma....sweet baby that she is... so no work out, though i did manage to get my freezer and refrigerator scrubbed out. After work it was pick up the food i had at dd2's and then home to make dinner and crash... today...still yuk...no work out again...but did still manage to lose 2 lbs this week.... yea, go me... hoping tonight to pick up the food at dd1's...but we will see...
This weekend, I was reminded on how important it is to forgive, not only others, but yourself. I could of held it against myself for not paying the electric bill...and though i did surely kick myself in the behind for it...i also said ok, screwed up...lesson learned... the electric company don't play around...pay the bill...lol... now pick yourself up and move on... i was able to help out dd2 more than i would of since i was already there... and i got to spend more time with my grandbabies...and this grandma loved that :) and as often happens when my kids and i get together...there was a lot of silly chatter and laughing... so all in all...it really wasn't a "bad" thing...though no, i won't forget to pay that bill again anytime soon :)
