My life lately has been full speed ahead. Not much breathing room for anything. As usual when things are rolling along like that-here comes the holidays. Work has been crazy with not just the normal cases but with the added unusual stuff. My training has picked up to prepare for 2008 triathlons. My son has bowling season in full swing with 2 meets per week. My daughter has cheer competitions which she competed in last weekend and was injured. Thus an appointment with the orthopedic MD tomorrow.

It seems like that is alot but is just the tip of things. This week is also Thanksgiving. We are driving back to Ohio so that I can cook for my dad. My mother in law is staying here because it is the one year anniversary of my father in laws death. She doesn't want to be around anyone. Here we have one more crisis- do we leave her alone for the holiday?

I cracked tonight. After a crazy day at work, and picking Bino up from bowling. I made dinner. I had 15 minutes to change and get to my Team workout. I hit the bottom of the rollercoaster ride. I decided not to go and stop my world for a few minutes.

Thanks for listening- I'm okay.

Waddling to jump back on the ride....................

Definitely OK to stop the crazy world for the evening. Good for you!

Don't beat yourself up over not going to Team Fitness. It's OK to stop and blink for a moment, especially when it means your sanity. You did the right thing.

I hope mini waddler is OK and not too injured from cheerleading. Good luck at the appointment.

Not sure what to say about your MIL. I guess she's an adult and can make her own decisions. I'm sure this has to be so painful for her.

Good luck with everything. :)

Sounds like you need a day off! Sometimes you just need to stop and breath.

I hope your daughter will be OK.

Take care!

I hope your daughter is okay. I was a bowling champ in school - tell your son I said knock 'em dead :)

It's okay to step off the ride for a while. I plan some time like that into every weekend. Even if it's only for 1/2 hour. So breathe, relax, it will all be there in the morning.
