My life as a woman, wife and mother.

I took a pass on the gym today

on July 23, 2014

Good evening! Well, it’s been an eventful day for us. I woke up to my alarm clock and could barely move my arms and I felt groggy, so I just turned it off and went back to sleep. TOM is here today too and that always kicks my butt so I thought the rest would do me good.

We then went to Walgreens to pick up my prescription. Then off to Goodwill to find outfits for the Mad Scientist Party next week, the girls also found a couple of shirts. Finally it was off to Walmart to get a bunch of things before I needed to be to work at 10:45am. One major item was a new blender since our current one is on it’s last leg, most of the buttons don’t work anymore. More on that later. We got in line with 5 minutes to spare, only to end up behind by 10 minutes. I called Gayle to let her know I’d be late.

Off to work at WW and weigh-in, down 1# from last week, 160.4#. Down is good. The meeting had less members than normal, but having the 3rd receptionist is great! We left there and took C to her art lesson with Roberta. Awesome stuff happening! She’ll be working with her again in August.

L and I stopped at the Mercantile to get a bday gift for a friend and then came home so I could eat lunch and change into biking clothes. We went back into town and stopped at the library so L could turn in her reading slip and get her free book. She also had 6 books in on Hold and I had 3 items. Unload the bikes and head out for a 5 mile ride. Great day for a ride, cool, slightly breezing, wonderful! Back to the truck, load up the bikes head home. Get the call from Roberta that they are almost finished up, but mere minutes before we need to leave L is in the kitchen making a smoothie with our new Ninja blender only to start screaming, “Mommy!” I go in and see blood! Yikes! I had no idea what actually was the damage since we just put a towel on it and squeezed and elevated her hand. Initially we thought it was 3 fingers, but it turned out it was only 2. Deep cuts on the first knuckle joint of her index and middle finger. We went to the bathroom, got the first aid kit down and got the gauze out to put pressure on the cuts. She has those taped on now and later we’ll put the bandages on. To distract her while we were doing things I told her a story of my finger-chopping incident as a kid. She did start to get woozy so she sat on the toilet lid and I got her some juice. All is well now, I promised we could hang out on the couch together later.

Supper is now done and eaten and I’m looking forward to plopping my butt on the couch. At least tomorrow is ‘less’ busy. 🙂
