The teacher hate in the ADHD FB group I joined last spring is seriously astounding. There are photos  of notes teachers have written on a childs paper or photos taken of private emails sent to the parents about different situations with their children  posted daily. Parents are asking for "opinions" on what to say to teacher which is always completely demeaning and down right attacking towards the teacher. It is alarming to think anything I write privately to a parent could possibly be copied and posted all over social media for critique by strangers who know nothing about the circumstances. The comments are so far over the top over nothing. One teacher wrote on a child's paper "don't do this" because the child scribbled all over the paper and did not follow directions. Replies to this were "get the teacher fired, go to the school bored, to the principal, she doesn't need to be a teacher, I would let that teacher have a piece of my mind" etc. Over what? Because your child d[...]

Concert last night was great! Got home late- around 12:30, but I was still wide awake at 6:00. Got up and ran.

We accomplished getting our Ohio drivers licenses today. My car is registered, his car is not because Virginia doesn't issue a title while you're making payments. He has extra paperwork to do in order to get his title. Our trip to BMV took close to three hours. The staff did everything possible to move the lines through, but it was pretty crazy.
We went to the grocery store and I got laundry done. I was getting ready to clean and recognized the scent of cat pee. Sure enough, Mocha was peeing on an area rug in the living room. I have spent the rest of the day cleaning the floor trying to minimize the damage. According to Murphy's Oil Soap, I can soak towels of peroxide on the spot to fade it then use baking soda to help eliminate odors. I already tossed the rug. It's the hardwood I'm worried about. I really wasn't planning on stripping and refinishing the floors right now.

I had organized a gravel ride in Pike County for this morning, but Mother Nature was not cooperating and I had to cancel it. I felt kind of stressed about this last night, wondering if the forecast t-storms were going to materialize. I hated the thought that I was leaving people hanging. But it worked out.

Registration for Land Run 100 (gravel race in Stillwater, OK) opened up at 8 am this morning. It fills up fast and this year filled up in ten minutes. Fortunately myself, Steve, Brenda, Chuck and Keith all got in. That was stressful too, hovering over the keyboard.

When the rain let up, Steve, Steve S, Brenda and I did a nice ride out to Waverly. It rained lightly for a few miles but otherwise was just cool and overcast. Brenda just had meniscus surgery a little over a week ago and had to take it easy. We wouldn't let her pull today, especially since there was a strong south headwind.

Other than that, we're going to burn an Olive Garden gift card and call it a goo[...]

Woke up stiff and sore this morning. Went down to do my yoga and core challenge and got sidetracked cleaning out the root cellar. Going shopping today since I have several events coming up where I need something not quite dressy, but also not quite as casual as I spend 99% of my time. I've gained about 30 lbs over the past couple of years and while I'd like to get it off, I'd also like to have some clothes that fit and look decent in public, so I'm going to break down and buy some larger sizes.

19/30 days done in no booze september

21 Day Fix Lower Fix: done in the morning. Darren did kid drop off so instead of running i did this. I don't want to lose the strength in the peak phase of half marathon training. Definitely sweaty and hard. Feeling a little tweaked in my left leg - noticed it yesterday after my run. Good stuff.
