Good and to get better
Saturday, October 25, 2008
Did well Wed and Thurs and OK on Fri. Went over in cals and had a few more drinks than I should have but WAY better for a Fri nite.
Definately could tell not drinking the past few days boosted my energy level. I wasn't ready to go to bed right after dinner like usual.
I am up early on a Sat morning - DH and dog kept me awake most of the night with snoring and snorting noises. Geesh! I will be going back to bed once they are up this am. I have got to do something to help DH with his sinuses.
Once he is up and working and I get DD (12) to her dads. I will have the house to myself. Need to get the rest of the plants in and get the grass cut short for the winter. Maybe will have to cut it one or two times more before the first hard freeze and or snow/until it goes totally dormate.
DH and I had an awesome talk yesterday morning and I believe we made some headway. I have to keep up on what we started so we don't fall back into the same negative communication pattern.
Have our last volleyball tournament for DD12 Y spririt team on Sunday. I really don't mind the time spent on vball but will look forward to being a little more free on the weeknights and weekends. Tryouts for club ball are on Nov 1st, and practice for that will start in Dec, no coaching involved for me though!
Promised DD15 to spend some quality time with her next week. She is feeling 'invisible' to her mom. I am so glad she said something to me. I have been so wrapped up in probs with DH, volleyball, getting back on track health wise, she has gotten zip practically from me lately. Need to mend our relationship - going out to dinner, just her and I next week and maybe do some shopping. I asked her forgiveness and told her we would talk more about it. She is at her dad's this weekend so it was hard to talk about this and have her leave.
She is such a great girl, how many 15 year olds would reach out to their mom the way she did. I take it for granted how good of a kid she is, kind, self-sufficient, trustworthy and caring.
