Rotten, stupid, no good, terrible migraine today. Have I mentioned I HATE this crap every single month?! 
Not motivated for much today - worked on lesson plans, cleaned a little then decided maybe swimming would make me feel better.

Apparently I'm just going for lazy this week! 
Got a receipt for my Kickr and passed it along, so hopefully they can either tell me how to fix it, or do something to replace it. Supposed to be warm-ish tomorrow, so I'm going to go for a decent mountain bike ride in the morning. Need to get off my butt and do something! 
Woke up early to take Owen down the hill for all-team swim practice at the big pool, then we went out to breakfast at a great place afterwards. Cleaning house now. Aspen has a slew of friends showing up at 4 to celebrate her birthday. We're heading downtown for dinner, but they'll be here long enough that it can't be a mess!

Feel like I've been on a trend of laziness this week, but I'm feeling a bit off. I can't quite put my finger on what is going on, but something is just not quite right. I perked right up at basketball practice last night, so maybe it's just in my head.

Ran some errands this morning, going to check out progress in the house & test some paint colors this afternoon.

Dogs woke me super early for their walk and it was bitter cold out so instead of a run I went dress shopping for a work function.  I hate shopping but at least going early means I miss the crowds and 3 stores later (and 16 dresses later) I found a navy dress on a rack (last one) and it fit perfectly but best news is - marked down to $50 yay me!  I guess they opened a new Chick-Fil-A and the lineup was sooooo long even though it was before noon!?  My kid won't eat it in protest against the owner.
Off to dog/house sit at my mothers for 2 weeks while she goes on a cruise.  I'll take my two dogs and work from there.  Not sure how this will work out as she recently downsized to a very small open concept place so not enough rooms to separate them all.  Hoping I'll be able to slip out to run errands when need be without a puppy war.  Not planning to do any serious workouts aside from a lot of dog walks!

Henry still does not have his SAT scores.  I read about scores being delayed for several reasons, the most likely would be suspected cheating in the room where they verify who was sitting where and delay the entire room's scores.  Or something was wrong with how he filled out the bubbles identifying him and they can't find his score.  Or if your score is too big of a jump from the previous time, but that's unlikely because he's never taken it.  I've calmed down but that's annoying.
In other news, I went to acupuncture yesterday for the first time and it was pretty different than I expected.  I really liked the guy and am going back.  I expected to feel the needles (which I did) but did not expect to have shooting and cramping electric shock type pain as I laid there for 30 minutes.  It wasn't severe or even where the needles were.  Apparently that's normal and can happen with stagnant energy being released.  This guy offered private sess[...]

8:59am: Friday! Just doing some polish sausages for lunch today. Sauerkraut, mashed cauliflower, chips and other good stuff to go along with it.
And in our core group of 5 Instant Pot Friday-er's, we have one that's keto and one that's wheat-free. It's the wheat-free's birthday tomorrow so we have a very nice meat and cheese plate for breakfast and a wheat-free cake from Whole Foods for dessert at lunch. Should be a good day.
And no OTF today! Good thing because I'm pretty damn sore today. Between all the push-ups  and snatch/rows/high pulls in the last few days, my traps and delts and other tough-sounding muscle groups are hurting. Good hurt, though.
Picked up 3 books on Wednesday from the library and two more have since come in, which will bring my to-read pile to 4, with one in progress and two done. This is not a bad problem to have. :)
EDIT:  My to-read pile is actually **6** ... I forgot about two books I got last weekend. My work is cut out for me...

Not a bad day--a few monkey wrenches tossed our way but we lived to tell about it. 
One of the nurses on my unit is pregnant and her sister (also on the unit) is having a baby shower for her in January. I checked out her registries yesterday and figured out the colors she wants to use in the nursery. I'm going to find baby G something at the Christmas market in Edinborough.

Not a great day in training land - Bikram was a waste of time, not hot enough to overcome my travel stiffness and I was sluggish and basically fell over in every standing pose.  Floor was a little better but just didn't have it.  Short bike ride was going better but then I dropped my chain and it jammed in the crank/BB joint and it took me a few greasy-handed minutes to fix it.  Close enough I suppose.

Friday off from work but home with kids. Felicity had a known PA day from school and we were planning a mommy and Felicity day. I did have the parent-teacher interview i the morning and I had arranged for her to hang with my sister while i did that. But late yesterday Logan was flagged at daycare with a fever so it meant that he would be out of daycare today (24-hour rule) so Darren also stayed home working. 
Felicity and I did go out and go to the ROM and for lunch and poked into a few shops for our day together. 
Sore from my workouts but feeling good. I do need to fit in running but definitely also need to have only one primary goal ... is it to do the 21 Day Fix extreme program or get my run mileage in? 

21 Day Fix Extreme Real Time Plyo Fix week 2 - sweaty but good. Used my 3lbs which is hardly anything but still found it challenging.
