Emotions are High

Today, we had a slow start to the day. We got ready went to the gym, and I really wasn’t feeling it today, but I did some cardio and a little strength training. Then went back on the treadmill. I was going to leave, but I did 20 more mins. My friend Erin got on the treadmill next to me. I wanted to hang out and talk to her for a bit.  I told her about the barre class on Friday morning. She wants to go with me, and then get coffee after. I was happy that she wanted to go with me. It is always cool to have a friend to go to classes like that with.
After I got off the treadmill, I went home and got a shower, and made some lunch. I put in a load of laundry. I checked on the dinner that was cooking in the Crockpot. Then I decided to look at my work e-mail. I saw that one of my professors, for one of my grad school classes e-mailed us a syllabus and said that the course should be up on course web sometime this week, so we can see the readings and assignments that are due. I had a harsh reality check. I looked at the text books that they are offering there are 5 of them. I instantly started to get so nervous. I saw that I only had two things due for our first class, which I was happy about.
When Drew got home with the groceries, I helped him put everything away. I told him about my syllabus and how it was sent today via e-mail. I told him that I was so nervous. He said, “Awwe you are going to do so well baby.” I said, “Thank you, but I am nervous.” He was there for me and we talked it out, but I just had so much on my mind.
After dinner, I read through my textbook list. Drew asked me if I wanted to order them now? I said, “Please if that would be okay?” He said, “Definitely baby, you can start reading, while you are off and get a head start. I am so thankful for him. I really am. I don’t know what I would do without him.
After I ordered the textbooks, we went to go visit Grandma. When we arrived at the rehab facility, it reminded me of where my mom’s, mom was when she was in a nursing home. There were older people roaming the hallways in their wheel chairs, older people in bed, asleep, or up watching television. It was depressing. I hate it that his grandma is in a place like this.
When we walked past this older woman, she was in a wheel chair, and had a hospital gown on, and no blanket covering her. She was saying, “Help me. Get me out of here. I want to go home” (We found out later she has Alzheimer’s). It was so sad. When we arrived, to  Grandma’s room, we walked in and she was up eating dinner in bed.  She looked okay, but not herself. I felt so terrible for her. Andrew’s mom was due to arrive shortly.
When my mother-in-law came in, she brought us some cheese from Thanksgiving, that we had given to her. We told her she could keep the extra, but she didn’t realize that and packed them up for us, and put some ice in a zip-lock bag and sealed it, so it will stay cold. I thought that was weird but whatever.
After we visited with Grandma for about an hour so, it was time to go home and get ready for a new week.  I still had some things to do around the house. It was a short week, but still had to be at work.
