My grandma's funeral is this morning. I didn't go home. I was too upset to travel and deal with layovers (no direct flights). Long flights and cost was $1,200. My sister went home to represent both of us and be there for my parents. I was there for grandpa's when she wasn't able to come in. I am doing much better today. Grandma is no longer in pain and is now at peace.

9:41am: Bad overnight with a headache keeping me up, but feeling okay this morning (though tired). 
Something not good is going on at my OTF ... posts on their Facebook page indicate that there was an emergency last night, they cancelled classes and then cancelled more classes this morning. They say that "Out of respect for our staff and all parties involved" please contact the studio email with any questions about the class cancellations and don't get in touch with the staff. 
5k is tonight. Rain predicted. We'll see what happens!

Carson got his first endorsement from a drum cymbal company today.  Pretty cool.  He was offered the second tier of endorsements where you don't get free gear but you get it at 70% off and you get promoted by them.  He is going to have his teacher at FSU look at the contract to make sure it's okay and he doesn't run into any trouble.  It sounds like he just has to agree to always use their cymbals in public performances (he already does) and in return gets a huge discount and is listed on their roster.  Pretty cool even if he decides not to take it.

Got my tooth pulled yesterday. Wasn't as bad as I expected. The cracked tooth was infected for so long that once things heal up, I think I'll be a lot more comfortable than I was. I spent two years and over $2,000 on that one tooth.

Went over and tended the pool this morning. While I was cleaning, I rescued two frogs - I actually think it was the same one that jumped back in. :) Finally got the pool looking better after the weekend neglect. We got a quote on the bathroom and while I want to go ahead and get moving, Fred wants to wait to do the addition. We're still in the design stage. That addition could easily be two years down the road! My thinking is to go ahead and do the things we can do now, but he is worried about where to put stuff that will need to be moved out of the way. He's worried about things that don't even matter. Put it in the trash for god's sake!!! Most of the things he is complaining about moving are things that he needs to go through himself. He alread[...]

Starting a community ed class this week, goes for 6 Wednesdays.  My run today is probably only aspirational.  Not sure when I will do that.  I wish I was better at being a morning runner.  Maybe tomorrow?

Realized last night that although the biting flies have been horrible this year, one bug that has yet to make an appearance is the Japanese beetle. Wonder if the rain has messed up their schedule? It would be nice if they decided to just skip this year.

Tried making one of those fig and goat cheese pizzas last night. I used a store bought flatbread and I think I would make it again but use pita bread or some other type of crust. The flatbread got a little too crispy and was more like a big cracker. Still pretty tasty.

Definitely feeling yesterday's strength workout - particularly in my butt! Good stuff. I feel very boring talking about my weight. It's still up. I did have a weekend of indulgence but it was my birthday - but i really don't want to feel guilty about food or wine or beer ... I can and should enjoy cake on my birthday! No guilt! Food guilt is a waste and it steals the joy from social occasions.  Anyway, the thing that is interesting is the mental shift. Since i've started doing the weights i feel stronger and feel like i look better. I don't feel fatter. The number on the scale is higher though and when i do look at myself i am thicker around the middle. But hardly fat. So, finding that happy place of being happy with how i look and even using other indicators such as clothes fit and just mood will help me. 
I still need to work on the feel of being deprived. I definitely struggle with the idea of I 'can't' have. But i think i need to mental shift that lower calorie, more [...]

I guess I have not been working so hard in the pool lately because I am sore after yesterdays workout. Maybe it's a combo of that plus 4 hours of swim lessons carrying little kids all over the pool. Rain, rain and more rain scheduled for today. Hoping I can get a couple of lessons in before it starts but it doesn't look good.
