I hate days like this- it was nice- but I like to be home a little. I can't imagine being gone all day everyday.

Just reading that made me tired.

Nettie said...

Me, too. I'm totatlly impressed you managed to squeeze getting a work out in a day that packed!

Hope said...

Yes, being gone all the time is hard. I think it makes it harder for me to exercise because when I get home from work I just want to be HOME! I am really a homebody and I love my house and my family much more than anything else. I guess I have to let that "love my family" part be that part that motivates me to get out and exercise so I can be here longer and healthier.

Umm Dude. That was a crazy day. That is awesome you are going to the gym so good! Feels great huh?

Sugarmama said...

Uh, yeah, this is some couple of days! And I, too, am impressed that a workout still managed to find its way into your schedule. I'm so slack...

Emily said...

HATE days like that. Glad you survived.

Sabra said...

whew! days like that wear me out. I have to plan them so that I have a day at home afterwards, otherwise I'm stressed out beyond recognition.
