Legs are slightly sore, but feel good. Going to swim at lunch, then run after work.

IMTX is only a month away.

-Update-
Well, crap. The weather turned foul and it's now raining/storming. Bah...

Slept like crap, up with the boy, then met Cath to swim. Stomach was still off due to boozing last night. BUT...the swim wasn't as wretched as I expected. I actually swam a little faster in all the sets today. Weird.

The run was boring, my tummy hurt and I was kind of tired. Glad Cath was there cause I really would have pulled the plug early on the wo without her running next to me. :) Payback for me goading her into her run yesterday. This is why we love training together. :)

Stupid snow and cold had me chilled today, so I made a big pot of chili. It was good and the boy even liked it. Whoo hooo. A meal we all enjoyed together!

I've been challenged to find 5 positive things from today and 5 things I'm looking forward to this week.
1. Timothy gets to stay the night
2. Hearing the toddlers say "Good Morning Miss Beth"
3. My sister telling me I was AWESOME!
4. I didn't cry when I read the final divorce decree that came in the mail today.
5. A former student reminding me that I made her smile when things weren't going well for her. Sometimes it's nice to know that what I did as a teacher made a difference to someone.
I'm looking forward to:
1. Going to mass on Thursday and Friday
2. Easter Vigil Saturday night when we welcome our newest members
3. Easter Egg hunt with the toddlers tomorrow
4. Sleeping in Friday
5.

Swimming then a dental cleaning.  Going to a different office of the group I have gone to for years cause it's closer to home.  I really like the dentist in Hanover--but the trek to that office gets to be a drag.
Will stop around at lunch, I am anticipating a busy morning.  
Supposed to go to the Squirrels game tonight....weather may change that decision.  Game got rained out.

foundation ride out on fhp.  very windy.  15 mph which manifested itself as side/tail on the easterly part and side/head on the westerly part.  dead on head going home.  which is why it took about 8:20 to get out there :)  Good ride.  Got the average up into z2 which takes some work in the morning on such a short ride.  good wind practice.  got rained on a little bit toward the end when a squall line came through
swimming at lunch
swim done.  good swim.  felt strong in the water.  kick felt good.

Is anyone else thinking about Boston these days?  That got me more than any of the other terror attacks combined.  I actually thought the marathon was yesterday but I guess its next week.  I am from Cape Cod, went to school in Cambridge a couple summers, LOVE the city plus knowing so many people at the race.  It just hit too close to home.  I saw a woman last week who DNF'd last year for medical reasons and had just left the medical tent at the finish line when the bombs went off.  She has an injury and is going back this year.  She will not PR but she will get thru it.  I was just like "I understand, I understand.  I get why you need to go do this."  I think she was thankful to be seeing a doctor who understood the importance of it all.
So this morning I got up and did my workouts and then scooted over to drop my car off still all sweaty and nasty.  I have a scrape/dent on the front I wanted to have fixed for, oh the last year[...]

Was going to do a trainer ride in the AM and run over lunch (on treadmill due to rain), but opted for double trainer ride. Wanted to see if 2 days off from running helps the hip. It feels pretty good today, so that's why I decided to lay off the running for another day.

Crazy busy day catching up and meeting deadlines (but I did it!).  Enough time to spare for a run and a shower before heading to the LUNA Chix season launch party. I wasn't feeling like I did much for it but then I looked at the free races I got donated and felt better about my efforts.  :)  Should be a fun season, time is flying so fast! Actual workouts start the first week of May.

(this is my WP post but I can't get into WP and I typed it here ...either way it gets read here or there)
OMG!! Prom dress shopping today.  Her date asked her in such a cute way .. I think they call these fancy gestures "prom-posals".  She was the envy of every girl at school that day. I really can't believe my baby is almost 18. Ready to graduate, going to senior prom, college, moving out .... All in a matter of months! I will miss her terribly but I'm so excited for her! It seems like just yesterday she was a little baby and a precocious toddler telling me that the things I was looking at in Victoria's Secret were "inappropriate, mama" ... and now she's a beautiful smart young lady!  But she will ALWAYS be my baby girl!
A lot of things haven't worked out like I wanted in my life but none of that really matters. Those were just the loss of ideas, things and men that weren't right for me. All that can be replaced with new ideas, things and men! The same old same [...]

I have totally burned myself out on art this month. I finally hit my last deadline - designed and submitted my ad for June SW Art - and have this whole week free to just paint whatever the heck I want. So what am I doing? Taking a long shower, doing laundry, cleaning the kitchen, editing photos, tooling around on the internet. Not painting. Which I actually need to do because I do have a few show deadlines at the start of May. I'm going to go with it for today though - just spend a couple of hours blocking something in, and otherwise take a breather. I need some space before I can get back to doing good work.
So, my mom is on a health kick and is doing the Zone Diet. She knows I've been into paleo since last year, and she keeps telling me how it's basically the same thing because she isn't eating a ton of carbs. But then we're at Costco yesterday and she's all concerned about the amount of fat in everything, and she's buying the fake eggs (no yolk), and she's all about low fat dair[...]
