Feeling fully recovered.

Working today and then leaving tonight (overnight flight) for New Jersey. I am going with Mike for his family vacation in Ocean City, NJ. It should be fun. I really like his parents and his two sisters. I have not yet talked to/met his brother. All the nieces and nephews will also be there.

Omg I am just .4 from a whopping 30 miles for the month.   I'm still wearing my running clothes, maybe I better go back out!
Running went pretty well.  The weather helped.  My hurt toe has caused me to over compensate and walk funny, so it took a while for my foot to loosen up. I was worried to begin with   But after about .5 miles it was fine.   Phew, back on track I think!

Hanging out at the hospital waiting for the doctor to show up so we can move the MIL over to the nursing facility. Don't know what will happen long term. Fred and his brother will have to make a decision to let her go home or move her into an assisted living facility and neither of them want to make it, but it is not mine to make. It's hard, because she is pretty sharp mentally and can generally take care of herself, but she keeps falling and each time, it's a little worse. This time, she slipped in the grass on a hill and hit her head, but she could have just as easily slipped and fallen in the pool.

Week one down without my partner in crime who keeps me sane.....it's rough.  Yesterday I had one case I reviewed four different times and kept sending back to the doctor....it was from Puerto Rico.  The last fax they sent was half in Spanish which I do not speak or read.......When I called the final decision back to the hospital I had to start with the hospital operator saying "No hablan Espanol"  and when I got to the case manager ....let's just say she was rattling off in Spanish a mile a minute and I had to repeat that phrase then take a good 20 minutes to read the decision to her......it was funny but a pain.
John has been painting our powder room, it's almost done.  Just needs to touch up the ceiling where he got the wall paint and do the trim.  Loving the teal color.
Miss Thing's wisdom teeth come out on the 13th......

Steve's 2 granddaughters (ages 4 and 19 mos) got here Thursday afternoon and are staying with us until Saturday afternoon while their parents are on a child-free vacation. Steve's ex had them Tuesday and Wednesday night. So they're being shuffled about quite a bit this week. Today Steve is taking them to a local water park and his neice and sister are going to help out, so I did not have to take off work (which would have been fine but I'm low on PTO).

So I'm trying to patch training in where I can, which probably means a couple of shorter bikes and runs. Do those count? they are going to have to count!

The sounds of summer bugs and how the song changes throughout the day, constantly weaving a changing tune.
Where I live.
That I am pretty flexible, especially for my age.

Ugh, my legs feel wrecked this morning! I think the combination of intervals on Tuesday followed by a pretty technical climb last night did them in. I think I'll make today a gym day (since yesterday was supposed to be lifting anyhow) and take it easy on my legs.
Gorgeous, but tough ride last night. 
Caution - RANT ahead - skip to the bottom if you'd rather just see pretty pictures!! => Still waiting to hear back from the bike shop, but word from Nancy via Pivot is that my bike did NOT get shipped out and now is going to be a few more weeks. I am livid. I have been very patient and nice, but at this point I feel like Pivot is just jerking me around. Up until now, no one has had size smalls available, so I've just been accepting that it's taking a while. But now, other people who ordered them after me are getting theirs, and they are available online, so hearing that I have to wait however much longer is making me mad. I realize that I'm on a sponsored team and I get a hef[...]
