Where to start...I got a phone call last night from an unrecognized number so I left it to go to voicemail. It was the manager at Thing One's apartment, the dog broke out of her crate and opened the apartment door--the neighbors corraled her but got the Petersburg Police involved because they didn't know where she was. Animal control came and took both the cat and dog. There were animal feces ALL OVER the apartment. We tried to get there in time to take the animals to our house but the animal control person left. We found Thing One at her second job to let her know what was happening. She's moving back home--finally admitted she is working 4 jobs to survive which means she can't really be any good at any of them right about now.
I slept very little last night. John is taking a personal day to help her get clothes and the critters. I'll be taking Moscow (the dog) for a walk/ jog later.

4:00 am wake up for no apparent reason. UGH. At least it gave me the opportunity to get to work early and get things done before the tomfoolery starts. We have efficiency consultants in and people are losing their bloomin' minds. Because now is the time to be concerned with how you do your job?!?!  I simply hope it comes to light just how little knowledge there is in many departments. Oh yeah, add in the constant CYA and backstabbing and it adds up to a trifecta of SSS. Yep, Soul Sucking Stupidity!

I reached out to our local Special Olympics coordinator and have begun the process for becoming a certified SO coach. This makes me very happy. :)

Met with our friend yesterday who is going to act as our general contractor and help us get our remodeling projects going. First step is to find the blueprints for the house. This could be easier said than done!

Heading to moms this morning so s-dad can run some errands. Then it's off to the store to return some dresses I mail-ordered. I went to see Fred's mom yesterday and she is fine. She slipped and fell against one of her diningroom chairs, but sustained minimal injury. She is having surgery today to get a cochlear implant. It just doesn't seem like a smart thing to do, but she is clearly the boss!

More snow and freezing temps. It's really early, even for Illinois, for this kind of weather.
Have a deadline to get out today, lunch at Mom's and then this evening is a social for the local bike club. We kind of quit going to the bike club socials because they seem to be dominated by the older members (they like to refer to themselves as geezers). With a new club president, things might be different, so we'll give it a chance.

Didn’t make it to CF this morning as I didn’t fall asleep until after midnight and needed to be up by 4:10am if I was going to go. That was NOT happening. Also feel like I am coming down with the crud so didn’t sleep the best either.

Goal is to do something after work but not sure if it will happen today.

Tuesday: Insert multiple surprise meetings today. One with the President, one with the COO where he literally printed 60 full page slides from multiple presentations to Frankenstein them together hard copy style... he was rearranging the order, deleting, adding, changing. Gathered them up and I went to get started,  then an hour later he came over and said "NEVER MIND!" hahahaaaaaa . 
Christina is having her bi-annual MS infusion today. It's like an 8-hour process. Sounds kind of awful... the drug is in the same class as chemotherapy and makes you feel pretty bad for a few days. Jon and I nominated her today for a company program where our CEO gives out holiday cash to employees going through hardships - separate from our Employee Relief Fund, where you have to submit bank statements and prove you have no savings after an illness or natural disaster (thus, essentially punishing people who properly manage their finances but still may need help, grrrrr). Christina had to pu[...]

Back & biceps today.  Looks like the rain has passed, maybe get outside for a while.
Have to get Snickers to the vet today, something is wrong with her eye and Miss Thing will melt down if something happens to her cat. She has conjunctivitis, we have eye drops for her. Not contagious so we don't have to segregate the cats.

Instant Loss Better than takeout orange chicken FOR THE WIN!  Delicious!!
Cincinnati is looking more of a reality than a possibility. Likely sometime this spring.  Not happy.

week 5 day 2 back & biceps circuit

last day as a tourist. We golfed early in Gulfport at a nice par 3 course. I golfed better yesterday, but was still fun and Dave finally got a par (and a birdie!) We had lunch on the water too. That was fun.

Sherry and I got pedi's after going to the trail. She walked and I ran. And it was Salt Rock for the big last dinner out. Had a tomahawk steak! NOM. Of course we went to one more Ice cream place...Larry's. We had a coupon and it is good. But it was CLOSED! BOOO! Had to settle for another place that I won't go back to most likely. Thank goodness the ice-cream train is stopping! We jammed a lot in our last day!

Potters Platoon run is gonna be rough on me. Not sure which will be worse-the cold or the hills! Missing my kids and the pup.

Does deep cleaning the bedroom count as a workout? I HATE vacuuming.

My running partner is in Madison this week working on getting her life coaching certification. I always forget she is gone about 1 week a month. Anywho. Wanted to sleep in this morning and have a leisurely wake up before work today. No such luck. Ted ate another sock or piece of clothing and threw it up at about 4:30 (at least he wakes me up and wants to get outside to do so), then everyone NEEDED me to do things for them. A big buzzkill.

Need to get the workout done this evening.

Headache throughout the night, woke up with the headache. Took an allergy pill, headache pill, did Yoga and had some relief at home before work then when I got to work it came back. I didn't have anything but Tylenol at school which did nothing so I struggled through the school day but txt play practice and bailed on taking LM tonight. Took another headache pill when I got home which helped YAY and I managed to make a decent meal of chicken and dumplings for dinner. My son had piano lessons, my husband took him but then he had to go back to work for a board meeting! Long day for him. 
I've been taking my daughter to the new chiro for regular appointments. She has been maybe 7? times now. Today she said she got all of her math facts paper answered in time and all correct. She also finished more than the front side of her homework (16 problems) so she got all of her lunch recess. SHE said "wow Mom I feel like this chiropractor is really helping". Interesting. For reference - I d[...]
