What's been happening....
Long hours at work on two frustrating projects. Cleaning out the spare bedroom each evening in preparation for my 23 year-old son to move in here because he's mad at his dad for telling him he needs to be on his own when he doesn't feel financially ready.
My ex and his fiancÚ had this talk with him two weeks before the ex's wedding. Nothing like putting your son (who's also your best man) in a foul mood right before your wedding.
AND the fiancÚ told me she would like it if I attend the service since my kids are in it. So I'm getting pressure from my daughter to go. I like the ex's fiancÚ and it was very nice of her to tell me she wants me there but I don't want to go. Your ex doesn't belong at your wedding no matter how much she tolerates you.
There's more but all of that has been the most draining of the last two weeks. Nobody was home tonight so I sat on the couch with a bowl of Special K Chocolaty Delight cereal, the remote and my simmering aggravation. Then I thought of the challenge I posted on the One Day Challenge team and got moving.
I took the dog for a 20-minute walk, did a 10-minute Spark Kickboxing video and two Spark upper body band videos.
It's a lesson I keep learning over and over and over and over.... best way to handle stress and aggravation is to get moving!
