Foiled again

Today has been a long day.  I can't express how good it feels to be sitting down and to be done for the day. 

Yesterday I made it to the gym and then headed home to quickly change and eat (and shower, don't worry) and then went back out for 8:30 drama practice.

Drama is really not my thing, I just got roped into it because they needed more people.  It's fun and I'm enjoying getting to know new people but since it's not really something I'm passionate about... when you tell me practice goes from 8:30-10:30 and then not actually start til 9:20 and then keep us there til 11:30... I am not a happy camper.

We got a "lecture" at the beginning of practice about how the drama team at church is a ministry and we need to be willing to make some sacrifices.. which I agree with, but I just feel that keeping us so late is taking advantage of us.  Scheduling extra practices if we need them - okay, but stick to your schedule.  Be responsible and let us go when you said you would let us go or at least tell us that practice is open ended and will probably go late. 

Granted, most of the starting late part is the fault of the drama team members which is really frustrating.  I'm always on time, usually early for things and people being late is one of my big pet peeves.  It's rude to make someone else wait on you.

Anyways, all that to say that I wasn't in bed until 12:00 and then I woke up once at 1:00.  When my alarm went off this morning I turned it off and turned over.  I was supposed to go running today but I was just too tired.  I'm glad I got the extra sleep but I just really wish I had been able to run because there's not time tonight and there won't be time tomorrow... I just know I won't be able to make it up.  Pre injury missing a day wasn't a problem cause I could run further to make up for the missed day but now 6 miles is pretty much my limit.

I did have a really great day babysitting though

I love ALL of the kids I watch but these are by far my favorites.  I'm allowed to have favorites since I'm not a mom ;)

I've been watching them for 4 or 5 years.  I watched stayed over for a few nights with the boys (there's three) when S was born and then again with the boys and S when A was born and got to see both the girls in the hospital. 

Look how big S has gotten.  :) (this is her about 2 years ago?)

After babysitting I came home and got ready to go to the gym.  I was planning to be at the gym for about an hour and then go straight from the gym for a run. 

When I got to the gym I realized that I was supposed to teach ballet today.  It's a long story but the basics go something like there was a miscommunication and I thought I wasn't working this week and had a week off but on my way to the gym I stopped in at the dance studio to double check on the dates... and realized I was working today.  Unfortunately I had no makeup, no ballet shoes, no clothes other than gym clothes... oops. 

Thankfully I had a decent amount of time.  I did 3 miles on the elliptical and then headed home to get all my stuff.  Once home I quickly changed and headed out again.  I meant to bring my gym clothes with me so I could finish my workout after ballet but I left them at home.

Of course, the clothes I teach in are pretty much yoga clothes and I can certainly move in them, they're just sooo hot.  I did end up finishing my workout but it ended up being too late to run and I didn't have the appropriate clothes anyways.  Foiled again!

So much driving today, too many activities, and preparing to pretty much repeat today tomorrow.  As a matter of fact, my main task for tonight is packing up for all of my activities for tomorrow so that I don't go crazy tomorrow morning and end up forgetting crucial pieces, usually clothes/makeup/shoes get left behind and I have to "make do" which is hard when you forget your shirt.
