Noticed some rt leg tightness while driving to gym and, sure enough, rt illiopsoas spasmed up on me halfway through swim workout. It released, but then left lumbar stiffness started to act up. Got through it okay, but feeling both a bit afterwards.

Woke up with a headache again. I feel like my sinuses get stuffed up during the night. Energy level was better today so I think it's just allergies at this point. 
Worked in my room this morning, got carried away again and wound up being there most of the day. Working on the wall of bulletin boards (accordion wall). Miss G and I went to town to the teacher's store then home for lunch. My friend's son came and got DS's loft bed when we got home. He has a 4 year old little boy and a baby. DS has outgrown this bed, he is over the weight limit for the loft part and hasn't even slept in his bedroom all summer (he's been sleeping in the basement) so out with the bed. Moving on. I painted murals on his bedroom walls years ago. There is a zebra, lion, giraffe and grass/trees. Looks like Africa. It needs to be painted but it will really break my heart to paint over the animals :(. Miss G ran off to play with her friends this afternoon, DH took the day off so I went back to my classroom[...]

Feeling back to normal this morning. Got up and tended the pool and took a sunrise swim. Wish I had my camera to picture the steam rising from the grass and the mist surrounding the barn while the sun rose behind it. It was so pretty!

Tended to mom this morning and am getting ready to wash the outside of the windows, take out a lilac bush and wash as many cars as I have energy to get through. I'll start with mine and if I get to the other two, fine, if not, tomorrow is another day!

I have a lengthy to-do list today. Day off? Maybe from running around at the hospital trying to secure safe discharge plans, but not from laundry and errands here!!
Got all my errands done by 1 PM.  These included: Getting a vet appointment for Mocha and dropping off the cats' records at the vet, picking up cat litter, a stop at the bank, the dry cleaner, the UPS store, recycling center, Goodwill, and Habitat for Humanity. I managed to get gas in my car and do laundry too. Time for lunch and some housework then maybe a dip in the pool before I go to the HealthPlex for classes tonight.

Since the phones were down when I went to the humane society today (I volunteer as a receptionist), my job was to play with the 2 pit bulls that were rescued from a massive dog fighting ring that they haven't found fosters for yet.  Not gonna lie, I was a little scared.  They put me in the back yard with them totally by myself.  It was hot but we had fun.  I played with Bingo and Gizmo!

9:54 AM: Went into the office today with the specific idea of attending a retirement party for Ron, one of the old guys that was here when I started. Well, it turns out HE'S not here, NO ONE ELSE is here, and the party may have been rescheduled to next week. My calendar invitation still says it's on for today, though. I am confused. 
Should I be taking this personally?
Raining like crazy today, so if this party does not occur, I will go home and ride the trainer.
10:31 AM: The party is going to take place. The guest of honor just showed up. (I suppose if you're retiring in a week it doesn't matter when you show up to work) My one work friend Jill had a mediation that was canceled, so she's going to come, and apparently there are a couple of other people stopping by later as well. So it may be lame, but not SUPER LAME. This is good.

Today's work outfit. Boden navy Willa dress. Striped long sweater, Boden jewelry, and my new Tory Burch sandals. See how they sort of ju[...]

Today I will go collect my anti inflammatories. TODAY!
Also meeting my friend Jill for lunch.
Not super motivated at work. I have a pile of work to do that is growing. For every couple of things I do, 20 more things take its place. It's horrible. We need more people in our department. Plain and simple.

So hot!  There's an excessive heat warning through the weekend.  I'm waiting to see what coach Ed comes up with for the alternate bike and run plans.  I would have no problem starting at 5am to beat the heat (though I'd need to go buy some lights for my bike first).
I considered going to the team swim again tonight, but am backing down from that plan.  If I try to do too much, it won't stick.  So for now, I am committing to Tuesday nights and will re-evaluate when my 10 punch pass is used up (whether I want to get the Tue/Thu unlimited pass).  Too hot to consider outside anything, so I'll be on my bike trainer this afternoon,

One more full day in the office. I have a 7:30pm flight from Newark to San Diego this evening. Land in San Diego at 11:20pm pacific time. I have a 4 hour training that I need to be online for Friday morning, so I needed to fly back late Thursday instead of traveling Friday. Will end up being better for me anyway. I want to be back on my own schedule. I eat too much when I work travel.

No workouts again this morning. :-(
