We watched the "Reality" dating show last night and it is down to the nitty gritty. 4 guys are left in this crapfest and only one of them will "win". And by win I mean that he'll not get engaged, but will become the next bachelor. Because the guy that ends up engaged will either get dumped or dump his fiance within a year. Yep, I'm a cynic. So here is the lowdown:
Dude #1 is a medical sales rep, but his family is in agriculture. So, they've planted a tree??? WTF is "we're in agriculture?" Who says that? You're either a farmer or not. So, we know this guy is a liar. Another give away that he's a liar is that his lips are moving. Or he's on a reality dating show. Or he's a dude. Pick one, they're all true. Anywho, this date starts with Our Lovely Lady Becca running and jumping into his arms. Andin the end we meet his family, hear his sob song, yadda, yadda, yadda. Finally they tongue wrestle for a bit and OLLB is a happy woman.
Dude #2 is a sales rep. Wanna guess how this goes? Yes[...]

Made it to swim this morning - yay! it's always a bit of a mental game to get out of bed for it. My first session with Eric this summer. He seemed pleased to see me. He said he thought i wouldn't make it. 
Logan slept well last night. Also yay! I slept like a log. After the previous night where he was up and just not settling for a long time. Just still feeling pretty tired as i turn my attention to work. Thankfully i am working at home which means I don't have to be on. I do have several calls. 
---------------------
So, also i've been thinking a lot lately about swimming. I have just come and gone on my 'anniversary' of swimming. 10 years ago this year I started taking swim lessons. I always wanted to know how to swim and triathlon seemed like such a good way to really do it - i wanted to do a triathlon too and I need to 1. learn how to swim, and 2. train for it - so i would have the frequency. I am no amazing competitive swimmer but most would see me in the pool an[...]

8:13am: Okay, so the garage door opener has been fixed (a replacement circuit board did the trick) and the new door handle on the door from the garage to the house has been installed. No longer is the house conspiring to keep me out. :
Headache this morning, but not too bad. And seemingly easing a little, so here's hoping.
I'm so glad Amazon Prime day is over. There are so many things I didn't know that I needed!! A few things that were deals on stuff I already pay for -- Dropbox and Spotify -- a few things for my office Instant Potting, one gift for my former roommate, a few essentials (USB-C cable that I've been meaning to buy) and perhaps one or two things that are purely for fun. 
So, remember that HealthyWage thing that I'm doing to lose weight? Where I bet that I can take 30 pounds off in 9 months? Well, they also have other challenges you can do while you're doing your main challenge. And the friend that's doing this with me wanted to do a step challenge and [...]

Thinking it is a non-workout day today. Work then Madison to get a copy of our marriage license for our insurance audit for the district. For some reason, neither of us know where it is. Oopsies. Taking my daughter so she can get some drive time and have some time together.

Steve was released yesterday morning. Of course it wasn't until after 5 when they were finished with all the discharge paperwork/aftercare instructions, etc. when he was actually allowed to leave the hospital. He is walking around like nothing happened and really doesn't have any restrictions other than to ease back into exercise and wear a heart monitor to keep tabs on any HR spikes.

Now we get to deal with fallout from family and friends who are butt hurt about not being kept more informed about the ordeal. Steve is a pretty private guy and I knew better than to immediately call his kids --- my instincts were right, as he wanted to be the one to tell them. But I guess he didn't let on how serious the incident was, and now his son is very hurt and lashing out --- partly at me but more at his dad. The son's wife texted me for a long time last night asking questions. Steve's aunt also was asking many, many questions, although she's level headed and just concerned, not angry. I'[...]

Towards the end of my swim set, I started to get hungry. At this point, it occurred to me that I had not packed my breakfast! I made my overnight oats last night but failed to transfer them from the fridge to my bag! After I showered and changed, I confirmed that my breakfast was, in fact, missing. I punted and stopped at Bruegger's on the way to work.
Also, I may have ordered an Instant Pot. Now I need recipes.
√ Tonight, I ride!
