I knew in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep it was gonna be one of THOSE Mondays.
AND IT WAS.
My brain was on overload. My car pool partner had to cancel and I had to get some fire in my pants to get the kids to school on time.
8am HA5K committee meeting.
9:45 Gym..try to get a few miles in to loosen up from yesterdays long run.
Cold plunge equally as important.
11:30 Rush to the Grocery store. The fridge and cupboards look barren. We were down to celery, Quinoa, expired buttermilk and a few other things that would make you go hungry.
I had been looking forward to my 12:15 massage all week.
I hurried so fast to get to my massage I forgot 2 bags in my cart! I quickly hurried back into the store hoping that someone returned my Sushi and organic canned tomatoes.
YUP! I considered using the restroom at "Kroger" but I was cutting it to close to my appointment.
About to pee my pants I ran to my car with my bags and drove 3 stores down to "LaVida" for my massage.
12:15...Even though my watch said I was on time..The receptionist said I had missed my appointment.
I felt my heart sink. I had jumped through hoops to get to my massage and I KNEW it was at 12:15. I know I am a bit of an AIRHEAD. But I totally remembered this. Upon conversation and the verge of adult tears they figured out I was not the first one who's appointment was messed up. It was their fault but it did not fix the fact I was going back home sore, disappointed and I still having to pee!
I had a couple errands that I was able to do so I did those and had to be back to the school for another MEETING at 2.
I still had to make dinner, running club and dinner with my girlfriends all in 3 hours.
Running club- Rained out..only the sun decided to come out when I CONFIRMED I was not going to make it! This was just my luck!
And dinner with "Lisa" and "Jenny" I remembered ALL day till I was making Andy salad and my phone goes off "WHERE ARE YOU?"
"AHH" I yelled out loud. How did I forget going out my girlfriends? I remembered 2 hours ago.
My head was spinning and there was nothing inside it to spin.
It was one of THOSE days. I was exhausted mentally and physically.
Do\o you ever feel like you are just on overload? Like one more thing might send you into the crazy house. For a minute when that MTA passed me in FLINT I thought that might me the straw that broke the camels back.
All I could think of was Ariel. I could feel my chest getting heavy. My breathing was conscious to me. "Stay strong Nita," "Push back the tears." I felt my eyes well up with thoughts of what Ariel must have seen. All these visions flooded my mind. "Stay Strong NITA." "Stay Strong, Stay Strong, push back the tears."
5 Easy miles.
Tomorrow is a New Day!
DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE CONTEST!! YOU HAVE 5 DAYS LEFT!
How was your Monday?
