I don't think that I take my husband, family, or general living situation for granted, but I've definitely developed a new appreciation this week for how easy I typically have it. Jeff's out in California with N for a volleyball tournament (BTW, N's team tied for 3rd overall, beating the #1 seeded team and losing a close match against the #4 seed) while I stayed here at home with D. and J. Being as I don't work, you wouldn't think that my workout schedule would have been affected much...at least, I didn't think it would. Boy, was I wrong.
Yes, I could have probably arranged things a little differently during the red week, but J isn't a big fan of the day care room at the Y (kids are all little) or hanging by the gym while I work out. I wouldn't be comfortable leaving him alone either asleep or awake while I ran in the neighborhood. It was OK for an isolated week, but if this was my permanent situation, I'd definitely have to do some serious arranging in order to maintain regular training. Like I said, I have a new appreciation for how easy it typically is for me to do what I want to do...and I'll sure be glad to see my husband tomorrow night!
