Sunshine today yay! 
No one else was swimming when I was at the pool, kind of boring. Went to Wal-Mart for groceries after swimming. Had enough time to vacuum the pool, grab a snack then in the pool for the rest of the afternoon.

Yes, after all that yesterday I was exhausted and slept in.  We'll see if I get anything in after work.
Today was one of those days that looked like we should have a light day and get stuff finished. For the most part, it was, but then we had a few discharges that we weren't planning on who all had needs. The physicians didn't order continued home care, the fax machine went nuts and it took several times for me to send two sets of faxes. I was glad to sign out at the end of the day!

One workout left in this series. I might do a few days of yoga before switching over to Body Beast.

Vacuum arrived. I am in love.
It was delivered right after the cleaning lady left. She vacuumed the whole house with her vacuum. Whatever brand it is. She did get a canister full of cat hair and other misc crap.
I vacuumed again with the Dyson and got ALMOST ANOTHER WHOLE canister full of cat hair. And misc dirt/stuff. Granted, we did buy the top of the line Dyson with every attachment fathomable, made specifically for pet owners. BUT STILL!
And OMG I did make the house sound filthy. I promise, our house is not gross. We do not wear shoes in the house, and we have only 2 cats! This was merely a testament to our new vacuum!

I didn't mention the funeral visitation we went to on Thursday. I actually didn't cry. Alex and the girls seemed like they needed some normal talk so when we saw them they were telling us about running track and seemed interested that Darren and I liked triathlon. Now that i think of it, of course, they have long dealt with the illness and there must be some relief for it to be done - as callous as it sounds but she had her first diagnosis 6 years ago so it's been a long go. This has been their life. The loss is hard and the next part will be hard, too. So, i was happy we could offer some non-death talk. 

21 Day Fix Extreme - Lower Fix: very sweaty. Warm day and i didn't turn on the AC. Plus, it's just a sweaty workout. I used the heavier weights for everything. The reverse lunge jumps though really got me. Whew! Hard!

9:40am: My brain doesn't seem to be functioning well this morning. I had a headache since yesterday afternoon through this morning, but it's pretty much gone ... but my brain is still in slow-motion. I'm going to try and not break things; that's my goal for today.
I don't know what I was thinking, but I signed up for a 5k tomorrow -- Short Run on a Long Night -- though it might get rained out (not officially, of course, but I don't know that I'd go run in the rain because I'm a big wuss these days). It's close to home and at 7pm and there's pizza post-race and before I knew it, I had the confirmation email sitting in my Inbox.
I have the song "Rainbow Connection" and Kermit the Frog's voice in my head and I can't seem to make it stop. Just thought I'd share.

More storms overnight. I wonder if it's ever going to quit raining? We had a lot of thunder and lightening last night, but evidently, not a lot of rain. I didn't have to lower the water level in the pool this morning. When we were coming back from the pool in the rtv, we had a turkey traffic jam. There were two adults and 13 tiny little babies. They didn't seem overly concerned to see us, so we sat and watched them. They are so cute! We also had a pileated woodpecker just outside the bedroom window this morning. He was preening and looking around like he didn't have a care in the world. I love these kinds of mornings!

I got waaaaay off track this weekend with eating. Yesterday, I cut out the sugar (again) but didn't make it to the grocery, so didn't have a whole lot of options here. We had blueberry pancakes for dinner. I honestly have no idea how I'm going to feel after having my tooth pulled this afternoon, so I'm going to try and squeeze in the store between mom and lunch.
