I have had a terrific weekend if you couldn’t tell by the title of my post. My sister and her kids came over for a visit this weekend. Since her hubby is working twelve hour shifts and we live about two hours from her now, she and the kids just stayed the night. I had my concerns about them coming over, not because I don’t love them but because they just got over a nasty stomach bug. I intentionally avoided seeing her the last time I was in her area, even though I really wanted to stop by, because I didn’t want to get sick. Since the kids homeschool, we don’t get exposed to as many bugs as other people. It had been a week since anyone had been sick so I figured they were no longer contagious….. I was wrong.
We went out for Mexican food for lunch – not a good combination to have with a stomach bug. After that we all went grocery shopping. Kelly and I tend do tag team grocery shopping. He takes a couple kids and I take a couple. Then we work off our list and check in with each other. Kelly was getting tired of shopping and headed with the boys to the electronics department. Meanwhile, I am pushing Lyndsey Lou Lou (one of her many nicknames) around in the cart with Angie by my side. I hear an “I’m sick” as she leans her head on the cart. I will spare you the rest of the details, but it was a messy experience and now I don’t feel well.
I hate being sick and this was one of the worst possible times for me to get a stomach bug. It is the last week of the two classes I am taking and I have a lot of assignments due. One of them is worth 10 percent of my grade. I could kick myself for not starting on it sooner. Apparently, we were supposed to be doing a little bit on this project each week. Each week there is a section from the chapter we are working on in this assignment and I was supposed to be working on this as I went along. This is what I get for not reading the assignment until Saturday!
My time management skills still need work. This is what always gets me in trouble; not planning ahead. So now I have three homework assignments due today, plus a huge final project due Tuesday, and I am sick! I am a little stressed but trying to just plug along.
I feel guilty because I didn’t exercise yesterday. For some reason these things always happen when I try to start an exercise program. I did exercise 5 days last week so I don’t think that is terrible. My goal was 6 days but I still have 11 weeks to make progress. I don’t know if I am going to be able to exercise today either. I hope I start feeling better soon because I don’t want to lose my momentum. I hope your weekend was better than mine.
