Wow, this week has been a whirlwind of emotions & new beginnings for me, with so many changes and transformations. My sister is doing better, but I cannot help but feeling like I should be there with her all day! Unfortunately, having to work & having a baby girl has made that super difficult. If I could throw her on my back and be in the hospital with my sister, I would do that in a heartbeat – but hospital policies are ridiculously restrictive, especially with the terrible flu season that struck this year.
So, although I called out of work to focus on family & do some things for my sister, I feel like there are still many things that I was unable to get to. I wanted to stay longer, but I knew if I stayed there, she would not have been able to rest. Hopefully, she got some rest in when I left and before others started coming to visit her? The struggle of the post-partum period.
On the other side of things, I got groceries for the weekend before the Superbowl craziness & I started my first class tonight after visiting my sister for the greater part of the afternoon. I am really excited for this class (even though I said I would not go back to school after my Master’s degree…), it essentially is assisting me to do EXACTLY what I need to do in order to get my business off of the ground. And, it is online (after tonight’s 3 hour in-class portion), and it is self-paced. So many wins… The beginning will be a struggle to get a flow, simply because I know the days I have off, I am going to want to be with my sister to help her out in whatever she needs my assistance with.
Well, all in all it was a successful day and I was able to get my exercises accomplished, though later than I would have liked. Cannot believe I am almost approaching the second “level-up” challenge.
I also took “before” pictures this morning (which I will not post probably until then end of the 99th day), but I am excited to see the growth and transformation.
Day#18 was a success! 2.1.18 = Complete
