How have you been?
I missed you this week.
Despite all efforts to the contrary this week has kicked my butt and kept me from many things I wanted to do.
There are those who would say it was my own poor choice making that led to this sad state of affairs.
But I know that for me some weeks are just THAT full. And add to that a nasty little cold/cough thing and I find myself a little worn out as I am parked on the couch this cold, rainy afternoon propping my eyes open.
But even when so many things did not go as I had wished, others totally did.
I didn't get to jazzercise once but I started My Fitness Pal calorie counter app up again and completely kept to my food goals all week - 3 days I was well under. For a tired, emotional eater such as myself it felt amazing to have stuck to this all week this week. I can't wait to get back to jazzercise.
I was out two night this week for work but on the one night Allan and I were both home we took a lovely long post-dinner walk. We talked and caught up and did some thinking and planning together.
I haven't had a lot of time with the kids but I have managed to help David get ready for outdoor education next week and I had a lovely sushi date and chat with my Lindsay and got to watch quite a bit of her first rugby match of the season.

So instead of beating myself up about how busy I was and how full the week was I choose to celebrate the meaningful moments I managed to find.
They are, after all, the very fuel I need to get through the other "stuff".
And now I think I might attempt a nap.
