I'm glad you had an amazing holiday party after that not so great day. Bummer you won't be in Seattle longer. :(

No idea. It was something like Skype?

The main problem anyway would be the time zones.... :D I can't imagine what my neighbours would do to me if I started singing at the top of my lungs in the middle of the night.

No surprise here, but I have used this exact same terminology!   Ya know - the super technical kind of terminology. :)

 

Glad you got your car sorted out and that the day worked out more or less not too crazily all things considered.   Deep breath, deep breath!

hi friends! 

I didn't do anything on sunday. I mean, I drove Fourteen ALL OVER TOWN. he went to a toys for tots thing to volunteer, and I picked up his friend in the neighboring village, and then went grocery shopping, and then picked them up and took the other kid home and then came home again. and then I made Fourteen study for a history test, and that is a very hands on activity (he does best if he can explain it to me, rather than look it over on his own) and then I had to drive him to dress rehearsal for his winter show and pick him up again later.

soooooo I didn't do the yoga. 

 

Monday though, I got up and did the bodyweight things. NFA 3B. PLUS I did the push-ups before bed. I'm still doing them on the wall and focusing on keeping my neck straight and getting my chin down to the wall, and I felt it very much in my pecs last night, and in my shoulders this morning.

Tuesday! that's today. I am teaching tkd, I swapped so I can leave town and miss thursdays' class.

I didn't get up and do the yoga, though. and I wish that I had. but I was waaaay tired and coughed a lot at night so I snoozed a lot. I hope I'm not getting sick!

 

things have been REALLY BUSY here at work. and it's only tuesday. and I've got a self-shortened work week. ugh.

hi friends.

can I call a redo for this week?

it was a lot!

 

Monday - Wednesday were absolutely intense at work. I taught at TKD on tuesday (the kids were TERRIBLE!) and wednesday I didn't do anything physical, rather, I got up early and packed, and went to work and worked really hard, and then flew to Seattle. I landed at around 630 and met my mom and we went to our cute air b'n'b (it was a camper! in someone's side yard!) and fell asleep.

 

Thursday I had to get up and work - so I was on-line and on a conference call by 6AM. it's such a trap to fly west .... you have time in the morning to work, and you just end up doing so much more. I did find out that I got a promotion! so when I quit working at 10ish or so I told my mom we had to go out for my choice for brunch. We had pho and bahn mi. it was amazing. she hadn't had either before. she was ok with it? but doesn't like a savory breakfast, generally. Then we went to pikes place market and looked around, and then met the family for dinner at 6pm. which my body thought was 9 pm. and we drove my uncle bobby home (he lives south of the airport) so we were back to the camper pretty late.

 

no exercising, moderate walking but at a very slow pace.

 

Friday I was up and working again, but called it quits by 930 pacific. we checked out of the camper and I bought smoked fish, then forced my poor sainted mother to have dim sum for lunch. (we had yogurt in the camper for breakfast, so it wasn't terrible). so fun! and we picked up my stepgrandmother, and attended the memorial, and had family dinner afterwards. and we dropped off uncle bobby and then mom dropped me at the airport and despite the weather there were no problems and I red-eyed it home.

 

no exercising, except for skipping the moving sidewalks at the airport.

 

red eye flights are horrible. 

I slept mostly through the flight, on and off, and got home and drove home and fell asleep for 2 hours and then went to Fourteen's show, and then home and involuntarily napped, and then had dinner, and watched a movie with my husband and Fourteen, and went to bed.

 

no exercising, at all. also, I was a zombie.

 

Today I got up and felt human! I did some shoveling (we only had about 2 inches) and a million loads of laundry and got everyone out the door for Fourteen's show and then went and ran some errands and made Fourteen plan his xmas gift strategy and now I've got a few things to work on for work, and it's already 630 and next week looks like a total bear, but I'll get through it! I'm back on the exercising horse tomorrow, for sure.

hello!

 

I had to hibernate a little last week. I'm having a rough spot right now. I feel like my psyche is a big ugly bruise and something keeps poking it.

 

Spoiler

I found out last friday morning that my construction manager suddenly lost his wife, while he's here in NJ for work, and she was in upstate NY. so horrible. he's home now and I did my best letting other people know so he wouldn't have to. 

 

responding to that, and then this weekend -- it reminded me that I am so close every moment to just full out despair. I don't want to be overly dramatic or anything, and honestly I'm *OK,* I'll be fine... but 2017 was a really hard year. between my dad's illness and supporting him and my stepmom, trying to support a friend when her dad was in a similar-but-different crisis after my dad was out of the woods, my grandfather dying, trying to be there for my mom, and holding everything together at home and at work is a LOT. I saw some friends this weekend in Pittsburgh that I hadn't seen in 2 years and I felt so overwhelmed trying to explain to they why I hadn't been able to talk or ANYTHING for the last year and all I could say was: this was a really tough year for me. I'm sure I'm dealing with some depression / emotional effects from this year, and I do want to emphasize that I'm ok, seriously, and my people take good care of my heart, and I am REALLY GOOD at choosing happiness! but boy, am I bruised and raw still, and I really don't know when it will go away.

 

so I ate a lot of holiday candy on Thursday and Friday this week. I went to a holiday party in Pittsburgh and ate SO MUCH FOOD and then had a GIANT BRUNCH and I stepped on the scale this morning and was over my "oh let's try not to get over this number during the holidays" number and that was a little bit of a disappointment. I'm going to ratchet it back in this week. 

 

I haven't been doing much exercise during my hibernation either, and it frankly panics me a tiny bit to think about how to fit it in with the workload I have this week PLUS all the xmas knitting I need to get done. I'll do my best. I'll have tkd tuesday and thursday, at least, and will try and work in some little things - tiny yoga, wall/counter push-ups, maybe some hula hooping - during the week.

 

I hope you are all having a much more wonderful and less (mentally) bruising December challenge than I am!
