Whirlwind morning.  Got up early to eat breakfast and start packing stuff, then ran the 5K (which started late...not good when you have a very tightly scheduled morning!), then showered and finished packing stuff in 40 minutes, since we needed to be out of our condo by 10am and were scheduled to meet with the real estate agent right after that.  Then began the whirlwind real estate tour - saw 6 properties and drove by 1 other in about 3.5 hours.  Then made the 3 hour drive home and headed across the street to our neighbor's pool party.

Got home a little late and then took a bit to get going for supper. Decided not to swim. Felicity was up at 4:30 this morning and even though i tried to get some more sleep it was not to be. Although i felt peppy at work I did not when when I got home. Guess I will try to go to Riverdale to make up the swim tomorrow.

Travel day/rest day. Not real happy with my performance over the weekend. Might be a sign of fatigue. Even though last week was lighter than average, I might still be beat down.

Travel Day.  I also sent my company an email with my two weeks notice.  The new company called Thursday night to say that everything was finalized, but I had so much going on getting ready for my solo bike and the trip that I didn't worry about it until now.  Excited to only have nine days left in my current position!

Getting stronger - probably more trust than strength at this point.

Stop staring at my farmer tan. I know you see it. It's there, alright.

I am slow on the learning curve with the multi sport function on the Garmin--but this is also the first time I tried to use it.  ***In other words, I didn't skip through the swim like I thought I did and it recorded my entire workout as OWS.  Ummm, nope.
  Windy, had a strong crosswind on my way home on the bike and had to fight a bit with that--but otherwise okay.My legs were fine until the last 100 yards of the run, then both achilles got pissed off at me so I walked the last bit up the hill.
Miss Thing and John got into a huge fight last night.  She stormed out.....spent the night with a friend.  We have not heard from her today.  She knows I want to address things tonight......it will be ugly. ***She got in around 11 PM, well after we all went to bed......sigh.....
I rake out the old mulch from all the flower beds today--front and around the roses--which are slowly returning to life after John chopped them to all of 6" tall.  Who[...]

was supposed to swim, but read and slept in instead. Then after being lazy Dave and I went to the lake. I loaded up a few more things, and he broke down the rest of the shelving in the garage. He rebuilt it, and I "sort of" organized some of the things that belong in the basement to the shelving. It is so confusing with having ALL the things we've moved down there. It really fries my that the contractor situation is effectively making us move twice. Once to clear out the house, then from the basement up to the main floor and garage due to construction dirt, debris and general chaos. I am not the most organized person to begin with! UGH!

I had hoped to sneak out on the kayaks, but the winds got so high I scraped that idea. Our japanese maples facing the lake took another beating this winter, so I just stood out there picking off the dead wood for a while to listen to the birds and warm up. It's chilly in that basement!

I apologized to our new neighbors (who are so nic[...]
