How to Make the Fitbit Happy

Sunday, May 12, 2013

So yesterday, I did my run workout in the morning, then mowed the lawn, then hit the grocery store, and after dinner we headed to Ikea to pick up a little table for Kate's room (those of you who have been to Ikea know it involves just a little bit of walking!). Well, can I tell you how happy I made my Fitbit? How about 12,960 steps?! And yes, I slept quite well last night, thank you very much. LOL!

Today has been a little mellower. I woke up early, as always, but was allowed to go back to sleep for a solid hour...heaven! Then I was served blueberry pancakes in bed. YUM! Then I headed to the mall for a few hours...I love being able to just go wander by myself, no schedule.

Tonight wasn't as fun...Paul's parents came down, and we all headed to Carlton Plaza to have dinner with my parents. My mom is just doing terrible, I think she's just pissed off so she's shutting dad said she's not drinking enough water again, and is getting confused. I could hardly understand her whenever she talked, she was slurring her words so much. SOOO frustrating - she is just determined to make all of this as difficult as possible, and to stress my dad out. It just makes me so mad that I want to just chuck her into skilled nursing, which is her worst fear...but it's just so frustrating that she won't do anything to try to change the situation.

But enough of that....other than my mom, it was a great day - I got to relax and shop, I got a few new things, fun stuff. And now I am ready to put on my jammies and crash out in front of the tv for a while before I pass out. :-)

Happy Mother's Day everyone!

    I still haven't been to IKEA and believe it or not, is one of my 'tourist' wishes to see when I'm in Denver. The 2 closest IKEAs to where I live are just under 900 miles away (north or west). Crazy!
