Today was a crappy day ~ in more ways than one! :( My 8-yr old was up every 10-20 minutes to use the bathroom from about 4:30am on, and since our bedroom is right next to the bathroom, I didn't get much sleep after that either. Spent the morning at the hospital getting her checked out since this had been going on since Monday. Came home and was basically brain-dead by then. Zombied for the rest of the day.

This week was rough. Even today, my daughter is still not fully herself (though I sent her back to school yesterday and there's been a drastic improvement over the number of required bathroom breaks ~Praise God!) and I have to confess, the worry has been a huge problem for me. Unfortunately, I think I've passed along to her my talent for almost literally worrying myself sick and over the weekend, hubby and I started to wonder if the reasons her recovery was taking so long were largely anxiety-related. Which makes me feel even worse....

Anyway, a VERY stressful week ~ one I'm hoping to never repeat. I'm hoping for a significantly better week next week! (although it would be tough to beat this week as far as evening snacking is concerned ~ woo-hoo!!)



Total exercise time: 3 hrs, 2 min (avg: 26 min/day)
Average Exercise Level: Moderate

worry is a family trait with us too. I'm doing a Beth Moore study where she said you can't change your past - you can just change your family tree starting now.

not having kids seems like the easiest way for me to stop it - but since that's not an option for you, its definitely something to pray about

Oh, I know all about the worry-ing thing!

But YAY FOR YOU for conquering the evening snacking thing this week!
