This morning we were on overdrive. The house needed to be ready for a showing. The toddler and I cooked breakfast (recording ourselves while making banana pancakes) and then cleaned up while the husband shoveled snow. We had a great morning! And my house is spotless! :)
But as we waited for the call from the buyers I started to get worried, depressed, overwhelmed. Thoughts about the house not selling started swimming through my head. Wondering if we made the right decision. You know, all the normal "what did I just do" worries.
Then the call came.
My emotions dropped down again as I found out it was just an agent. Not an actual buyer coming to the house. :( On my way to dropping the toddler off at school and heading to the gym I was glum and for some reason, hungry. Thankfully I had some nuts in the car. Now my thoughts shifted to my weight, training and eating habits. I’m wondering if I’m not eating enough but I don’t want to give myself permission to just go crazy because that’s how "it" starts. I fought the urge to hit a drive thru or buy one of those crazy shakes at the gym.
Now I’m feeling good again. Working out with another one of the trainers clients. We were having a blast! I started thinking about how far I’ve come. I’m very proud of my current fitness level. My trainer calls me "diesel" and it just puts a smile on my face. :) Now my drive home I’m on cloud nine. The workout endorphins are in full effect. I come home and make lunch for the husband and I (note: HE wanted fast food the day AFTER we committed to not eating out. GEESH!)
I then started to get some work done. Prepping the video I recorded earlier and working on the new blog. I finally decided to take a shower (ahhh the joys of working from home) when the phone rang. The toddler got sick at school. Doesn’t it suck when your child is sick? I hate it only because there is nothing I can do for him. So we came home, cuddled on the couch and watched The Backyardigans. We all fell asleep accept for the toddler, of course. He was actually starting to feel better.
Me? I hate taking a nap mid day. I always wake up groggy and pi$$ed that I can’t keep sleeping (unless it’s a day I have no responsibilities, but when does that ever happen?!?)
After nap we were all about dinner. I made some sauce this morning so all I had to do was boil some water for pasta. I love eating dinner as a family so now I’m happy again. Until… I just couldn’t stop eating. I swear I could have eaten a pound of spaghetti myself. I did stop at about 4 oz but boy I was fighting off cravings for bread big time. I just wanted to "dip." Thankfully I didn’t have a loaf of Italian bread or it’d be gone too.
Then the husband took him off to bed. Time for me to get some work done. I get all camped out on the couch with my laptop but ten minutes later we hear a cry. The toddler got sick again. :( Poor guy can’t hold anything down. Now at 8:30 I’m cleaning up puke, and calming down a sick three year old.
We finally get him back to bed and it was time for LOST! Loving it this season. I chatted for a bit on BlogToLose while watching and the toddler needed to be settled a few more times. Once all was calm I was hit by a snack attach. I wasn’t even hungry I just wanted something. Did I stop at one bag of crisps. NOOooooo I went for bag number 2. Now I’m feeling a bit over full and disappointed in myself.
*sigh* This too shall pass. Tonight my goal is bed before 11. So I gotta RUN!
