No time to workout...BAH HUMBUG!

Have you ever just had one of those days that doesn't seem to slow down no matter what you do?  Well, that happened yesterday!  The holidays are always busy but add to that, a hubby that is not well, a best friend that is also not well, and a daughter that needs a tooth extracted, and you have a very complicated day!

My days are pretty normal.  I get up, do some work from my computer and then wake up the kids, feed and dress them, finally getting them on the bus at 7:40.  After that, it is finish my coffee, work out, and go on with my scheduled day.

Oh but yesterday, it was a different story.  I had to do all my normal morning stuff.  Add to that, our Elves on the Shelf, Red and Diamond.  Then, I had to run to Target, like that is ever a problem, to get an Elf Pet because we were making reindeer cookies in the evening and asking Red and Diamond to bring one.  Of course, come Christmas shopping was done.

But my friend, Diana, looked like hell.  She was out there in left field and not looking good at all.  Rushed home to get her to lay down.  Only to figure that she couldn't take her friend to work so I volunteered.  Then ran to the school to pick up Sofi to take to the dentist to get her tooth pulled.  Back home, got her comfortable, ate lunch, and was waiting to work out.

Didn't go down like I planned.  The 3 times I tried to start working out, I got an important phone call.  After the call, Sofi wanted something to eat but since she cannot eat anything hard, I had to figure out what to get her.  Totally caught off guard and the grandparents weren't here with her goodies yet.  It was just nuts!

With just a minute to spare, literally, I got to my workout done.  I mean, I had a minute between the time I finished and the time I walked out the door to the bus stop.  I could have used not having time as an excuse, but I didn't.  I got it done.

Mind you, that was all before 3:30.  Things got much more complicated in the evening.  That is why I need to get my workouts done EARLY!  With our evening so hectic, there is no way I could ever get the workouts done when the kids get home from school.  Not only that, I want to make sure I am present for them so working out while they are here takes time away from them and that is NOT ok with me!

Let's hope Friday goes a bit more smoothly!  Have a wonderful weekend!
