May have dragged butt this morning getting out of bed. May have hit the snooze button too. I didn’t give into the temptation of staying into bed, we’ve done so much good stuff here in the morning and I don’t want to slip backwards, so here I am.
I need to get moving pretty quick here though. No time for powerful introspection of my soul this morning. I’m so busy at work and I must get in before everyone else so that I can prepare a website landing page for an eBlast that I’m sending out. I did the back end technical work last night like setting up the domain so that it links to the address correctly and is pointing to the correct server (mind you I don’t do that actual technical work, I request that our IT team does the actual work).
It’s an early release day today, offices close at 2:00. It will be hard for me to get out though. I just have so much to do. Then tomorrow we are off for Good Friday.
Rob is coming down tonight to stay with us and then tomorrow I take him into the hospital for a procedure to remove his parathyroid glands. He’ll be in the hospital for three days afterward, which means Easter, so I’m not sure how much effort I’m going to put into the holiday. I’ll do a basket of course and we’ll color eggs, but as far as a big dinner, I don’t think it will happen.
My mom called me on the way to work yesterday. It was wonderful to hear her voice. I miss her so much. Of course she pisses me off too. Invited me and Erin up to her house next week. She just lives in another world. I didn’t fight with her though, I just told her no thank you and I might of said, that would never work, but I’m not sure I even acknowledged the stupidity of her statement. What is fighting with her going to do? She has clearly made up a fantasy world to live in so that she can cope with the awful life she is living with my dad. I was just so happy that she called me. I guess I took the high road.
While Rob is having surgery tomorrow I hope that I can find a place to plug my laptop into. It would be great to get some work done while I’m sitting there and maybe get closer to getting out of this hole I’m in at work. I hate being out of control because that is when shit falls through the cracks. If I don’t feel motivated to work, then I’m thinking a little redesign of my blog is in order. My About page is very, very old and is due for an update. It says my daughter is 12 and if you can believe it she’s three months away from being 16 years old!!!! I don’t know how that can be!
This exercise I’m doing here is really going well. The last few days have offered me a lot of clarity that I haven’t seen in a long time. I think I’m ready to make some diet changes. I promised myself I wouldn’t go on a diet until I was ready to truly do it, for real this time, like never looking back dieting. I’m only interested in changes that are long lasting. We’ll see how it goes and how much I’m able to plan this weekend with all that is going on. If all stays constant, I’m going to start a Whole30 on Monday.
Well, it’s time. I’ve got to get my butt moving and out the door. I’m sending peace and love to everyone that is reading this. Have a fabulous Thursday!!!!
