Put a fork in me...I'm done!

We had a very busy week. Here is the summary...

Monday ~ I woke up about to lose my mind because for about three days I had been dealing with a very uncomfortable "lady issue" so Monday morning was spent trying to get into my doctor. Luckily I got in but that meant I had to fly to get Maya to school and find a place for Eden on very short notice. My doctor is like 40 minutes away so it pretty much took up the day. Two prescriptions later I was rushing to the school because it was my day to help out. Aric had his two hour+ interview with our case worker. That night I made dinner for my "pregnant feeling horrible" friend. We managed to survive a Family Home Evening with minor arguments and after bedtime routine was done...I was done.

Tuesday ~ Got Maya and Edee to school. Tile guy comes and finally figures out the reason why our shower has been leaking for three years, which has required our floor to be replaced FOUR times! So we'll see if it's really fixed this time. Tried to do Pilate's but due to "lady issue" mentioned before it was miserable so after about thirty minutes I left early and ran two miles instead. Still uncomfortable but at least got to work out. Picked up Eden from school. Started working on my talk and the lesson I had to help teach in Young Women's (YW)on Sunday. Did some laundry. Hung out with Eden. My visiting teachers came over. Helped Maya with homework. Didn't go to Youth Night, sent Aric. Watched the Biggest Loser finale...yay Ali...yay Bernie! And caught parts of American Idol. Still felt crummy.

Wednesday ~ Still feeling not right. Got Maya to school. Had to carpool Eden's ballet crew today. Eden had Jane R. over for a play date so while they were watching High School Musical 2, I worked on my talk and took a rest. I helped the girls work on some extra jobs so they could earn some Build-A-Bear money. Help Maya with homework. Then worked on my talk/lesson/Bishops Youth Discussion (BYD-a meeting the youth in our ward have once a month. We are hositing it and I am in charge of the discussion). Ran four miles...yes four. That's not normal for me but I had to get rid of a lot of stress.


Thursday ~ Finally starting to feel better. Got Maya and Eden off to school. Had my two hour+ interview with our case worker. Had lunch with Aric to decompress after such an intense two hours. Went to Target and found some sweet yoga pants for five bucks. Did a little more retail therapy and then got home in time to feed the girls cereal for dinner and get Maya to soccer. We got there and no one was there, after 15 min we left. Later found out the coach changed the time and we didn't get the memo...which turned out to be a good thing because Aric and I were going to ward temple night and it was easier to just drop her off at the Romney's, where they ate course #2, chicken noodle soup. The temple was so wonderful. One of the best sessions we've ever been too. Too personal to write about, but we definitely left knowing the Lord's hand in our life and feeling His love for us. Once the girls were in bed, we ate dinner at 9:30 and got to watch the Office and Survivor...Good but busy day.

Friday ~ Almost all the way better. Got Maya off to school. Tile guy came and fixed the mess he made earlier that week. Took Eden to story time at the library. They had a hippy guitar lady singing to them. She was actually really cute and a great singer. Eden picked out her usual 6 books and one movie. She always picks out like four non-fiction books. Last week I had to read a book to her about spies and money. I try to talk her out of them but she likes them. They really aren't fun to read out loud...Later we went over to the Sampsons to work on their kitchen, they are painting it red. They make us work for their friendship. Aric whipped up some ribs on the grill, and we watched a really dumb scary movie "THEY". Don't waste two hours of your life on that one...

Saturday ~ It was our families turn to help clean the church. Aric went to represent our family while I took Eden to her dress rehearsal for her dance class...they have a performance next Saturday. My mom was in town visiting my sister so she came over for a few hours and helped the girls clean the basement. They still hadn't earned all the money they need to buy new outfits for their animals. So with her help we were able to get the house cleaned and work on our talks/lesson/BYD until Maya's soccer game. We had scheduled a babysitter like two weeks ago because we had made big plans to go out, but I was worn out so we just went out to dinner with the Sampson's and then came home to work on talk/lesson/BYD. Then we went to bed early.


Sunday ~ All better. Finalizing talk/lesson. Get everyone ready for church. Go to church. Give talks. Girls sing. ("The Priesthood is Restored" in front of the whole congregation. As Maya gets in front of the mic and the music starts to play she says to me.."Mom, I really don't want to do this", I say "You are going to do a great job and stood right behind her with my hands on her back so she couldn't take off. She and Edee did a great job.)Give lessons. Come home. Eat dinner. Finalize BYD stuff. Have BYD. Get kids in bed. Get myself to bed. Put a fork in me...I'm done.

You make me tired. I haven't even gotten out of my pajamas yet. (it is 3:00) I am protesting because I feel like it and because it is snowing. I think those are two EXCELLENT excuses!

That is a crazy busy week. I am glad that you survived. Not to mention, impressed by your ability to exercise while stressed. That is the first thing to go for me. That is why I haven't really exercised in about 4 years:). And I love your bed spread. And where is your tatoo?
