Meal with mama, strength in numbers and getting some zzz's
Well we had mom over last night for dinner.
It was a nice visit with mom. She was here for 4 hours and had a lot of gossip to catch me up on. Some jaw droppers, some commiserating on like minded opinions and people that just are screwed up and talking about them is truly a waste of time. I always try to show my disdain for the people involved but she ends up sucking the Mr into it and I just have to let it run it's course way longer than I care to listen to. To quote Frank Cross..."scrape 'em off Claire, you wanna save somebody, save yourself." But even with having to listen about other people's crap, we shared lots of fun stories of our summer too.
We got our workout in earlier in the day. Resistance band training to ease back into strength for the Mr. So if his shoulder doesn't heal up, I'm going to do an extra session when he's not here so he doesn't feel like he's missing out. I feel a real difference in not doing two sessions a week and I can't let my strength slack when he's the one who needs to back off it a bit to heal properly. I remember going through phases of that in our past where one person couldn't workout or do something and the other would then slack as well for no real reason. I'm going to learn from that mistake and do what I need to do for my own endurance while supporting him in what he can do.
I have no idea what workout I want to do tonight. I really wish it wasn't so hot so we could get one paddle in this week especially with a close to full moon but I don't think that's going to happen. Oh! I forgot to mention that the other night I used a sample of Emergen-Zzzz Nighttime Sleep Aid with melatonin because sleep has seriously been eluding me lately and my body was feeling battered. I slept for 9 hours with only one wee break at 4am. I still felt somewhat tired (not groggy) when I woke up but I know my body needed the repair time. So while I'm not a proponent of using sleep aids, this one may be making an appearance for me before trips especially. I always have a hard time sleeping before a road trip from either excitement, making sure I don't forget anything or antici...
Kudos to those who got the reference. Ooh, today I might just have to torture the Mr with that movie!
Welp, suppose I'll get a move on. Hope everyone has a great day!
What is/was your relationship with your mom?
Sleep aids...yay or nay?
