It has been far from a great week and with TOM on the horizon, the week shouldn't really be shaping up, but once it arrives I always do feel a lot better.
Last week was full of a lot of work stress, excitement (and disappointment) regarding our basement project, and looking forward to 1 1/2 days of at the end of the week to go to Great Wolf Lodge and celebrate my son turning 7.
After a beautiful weekend last weekend, the weather turned raw and nasty and brought everyone's mood down. I worked from home Tuesday - Thursday and ate like crap! And because I have no real junk food, I was creative - like dark chocolate bits, and lots of peanut butter crackers.
So by the time we left on Thursday afternoon, I was definitely feeling bloated and gross, but I wasn't going to let that get me down. We had all been looking forward to the trip for a long time and I knew I wouldn't be the biggest person there, so I was just going to put on my tankinis and act like a kid and that is what I did!
We all got to try out our 2 new bathing suits for the cruise. I loved how they felt. I can NOT wait to be swimming in the waters of the Caribbean in just a few weeks. We've been waiting for this trip for SO long!
The 1 night trip did remind me of some things - we didn't eat dinner until almost 8:30 and by 10:00 I was in bed - my body does not like that! I am used to eating fairly early so I woke up at 2:00 with a really sick feeling stomach and didn't sleep well for the rest of the night. I need to be reminded of that before our trip to not eat so late! Thankfully we are in the early seating for dinner.
One thing that didn't happen at all this week was running. It was drizzly and cold last week. And while I laid out my stuff for a 6 mile run on Sunday morning, when my alarm went off at 6:30, it was 23 with a feel of 17. On the first day of Spring. I just don't want to risk bronchitis so close to the trip. We had plans to go to my mom's to work on her house, otherwise I would have gotten the run in later in the day.
We were "blessed" with snow this morning. The first full day of Spring. A lot of towns didn't have school today - thankfully we did. Otherwise, 1 more snow day would have brought up to the last day of school on a Monday - no one wants that! And the snow didn't stop the contractors, because they actually started our basement project today!!!!!!
