How Can Unemployment be So Time Consuming?

I swear, I don't know how I ever had time to have a job.  I've been so busy lately, and it's causing me to fall back into the stressed out eating phase.  I haven't weighed, but I'm afraid the downward trend didn't continue last week.

R's daughter S was here, and since I'm not working, and he doesn't have that many vacation days, I just stayed home with her.  Which actually proved to cause some good calorie burn.  We swam almost every day.  We played Just Dance on the Wii.  We rode bikes.

Plus, I think we actually ate healthier while she was here, because I was trying to set an example for her.  We actually cooked dinner every night but one, and we ate at the table like human beings (instead of in front of the TV like R and I usually do).

I had a big presentation to do yesterday (which yes, was a "job" of sorts, but only a one time deal).  I was completely stressed out about the whole thing anyway, and having S here the week before meant I had little time (and even less focus) to prepare.  It was originally going to be today, so I kinda thought I had at least one more full day to prepare, then they changed it.

Anyhow, that's over now.  My house is quiet again (maybe a little too quiet!), and hopefully I can get back into some healthy habits.  I'm planning to start reading Women, Food, and God.  I'll for sure keep you posted on my thoughts as I do!

My younger SIL is going to spend a week with us next week. It is the same thing with me. I try to eat healthier (good example like you said) and she has tons of energy so I usually end the evening playing the Wii with her. I love having her around, but sometimes it feels like work! =)
