A long short week
Tuesday, July 05, 2016
Here I am, back to work after a 3-day weekend that sure didn't feel like a 3-day weekend. Where did it go? I was exhausted through it all thanks to my large dog who is terrified of thunder and fireworks, of which we had lots of both all weekend. Now today feels like Monday, except it's Tuesday, but it will feel even longer than a typical week by the time Friday gets here.
This Saturday I have guests arriving from out of town, and I will be off work next Mon, Tues, & Wed. This will be a nice break, especially since I'll get to see my best friend. I'm feeling a little selfish and wish she'd leave the husband and kid at home, because I have a feeling plans are going to revolve around the little one (which I understand) and making sure the husband doesn't feel left out or like a babysitter. It's just when she first mentioned that she wanted to plan a visit, I assumed it would be just her... and we'd get to hang out like "old times" before husbands and children and distance happened. I'd never say anything to her, and I would like to see her little one, but I'm feeling more stressed about making sure everyone is entertained and don't imagine we'll get the time together, just the 2 of us, like I had hoped. Terrible, I know. I guess I'm just missing the good ol' days... ;)
Anyway, still struggling with adding in exercise, although the weight is still s-l-o-w-l-y coming off by keeping my diet in check. I finally broke through the 160 barrier (been stuck between 160 - 162 for weeks), and weighed in at 159.6 this weekend! I just have to keep it up.
Ok... back at it!
