I had a wonderful day yesterday (did a couple errands, worked out, walked the boys, and hung out visiting a friend in her gorgeous home), and went to bed last night so relaxed that I drooled on my pillow TWICE (out of both sides of my mouth)!! Awesome... A massage therapist told me that is best indicator of deep relaxation.
Today I have to do couple of errands, but mostly will be home cleaning house and getting ready for another week of work. And creating an internal plan for not making myself nuts trying to catch up, clean up, and organize a company that is getting micromanaged by the overseas home office... I'm such an over-achiever that I am going to try to start doing C work and not A+ work!!
Suzanne, that comment would have totally flipped me out!! I think you're managing your response well - you are a good mom and if you give away too much of yourself and your energy, you'll have nothing left for yourself or anyone else. You are the only one who can know what your limits are and I'm glad you're not letting anyone else use guilt to make you do more!!

Light snow on and off most of today so far -- it's almost 3 pm here now. And more forecast tonight and tomorrow, and VERY cold temps. brrrrr Still, had the puppies out for 20 min earlier and we're heading out again, shortly, for another 15-20, depending on how cold I get.
Had a baked pork chop earlier, will have shirataki noodles with cream cheese and mayo soon, and lamb chop for dinner.
I feel really good not having artificial sweetener.
This time, in 11 days, I'll be on the plane to America - WHEEEE!
Have a lovely day -- and Happy Mother's Day to all the British moms!
I cannot wait to take a walk in the sun later, spring is coming! That should cheer me up. I am in a bad mood as my husband hurt my feelings last night. The baby was sleeping, so I decided to let him sleep and miss Andrews hockey game. Well, dh went on and on about how I have two kids and need to be there. But, he is not the one dealing with a tired baby in a hockey arena. James is growing up fast and soon I will be ablevto go to everything, but I did not appreciate what he said. I am trying really hard to be friendly today and not passive aggressive.
