OhMel- I just typed in a long reply and lost it with one swift click of the wrong computer key in the nighttime darkness. AAAAAGGGGHHHH!
Let me try again.
We're going through some of the same in our house, with my husband unemployed and taking a certificate course to start a home business eventually. It's stressful! I'm a graduate student working (yeah right) on a... what's the word? d... dissertation! Haven't seen it in 8 months, so I'm forgetting all of the terminology. My daughter was up 5 times between 10 and 3:30 tonight. That would be every 45-90 minutes. This is a nightly occurrance... see my new thread to give suggestionshttp://www.mothering.com/discussions...23#post7853923
My shoes have NOT yet arrived despite my purchase online on the 5th. AND I'm signed up for a 10k, which I'll probably just plan on walking, for May 6th. Maybe I'll run a mile. I can't run before I get the shoes because my old shoes are way too old to run in. Good hikers now, not good runners. I'll injure myself. My mind wants my body to work out but all of the forces of the universe seem to be conspiring to glue me to the couch. Is it all in my head? I don't think so... Will I ever be able to get back into shape???
Oh, and Bec, I just located my spandex shorts, but those are from my marathon-training (I actually ran one in '97! Slow, but I did it!) and pre-baby in-shape running days! I don't have the nerve to try to pull them onto my body yet. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe I should try in case I need to get new ones so that I can use those shoes when they do land on the doorstep.
I'm off to try to get a bit more shut-eye before it's time to really get up for the day.
