Long day, I wanted to get up earlier for my run--but it was 25 degrees out and I could not bring myself to get out of bed when it was that cold.  So I waited for it to warm up, by maybe 3 degrees at best.  Oh boy, wasn't bad once I got moving but the first few minutes were really cold.  I had wanted 8 miles today, with the late start would have been okay with 6 so I'm pretty happy for the 7.25.

We saw the Things today.  Thing One had moved dorms and needed her area rug and vacuum so we used that as an excuse to stop on the way to see Miss Thing.  I picked up some groceries for both of them last night so they each had some additional food.  
Lunch in Farmville at BDubs which was okay--though I certainly know the difference between Italian dressing and Balsamic...what she gave me was NOT balsamic.  Dinner in Lynchburg.  Both the Texas Roadhouse and the Olive Garden were PACKED.  We decided on Olive Garden. Thing One's[...]

so we had a long night. I ended up saying goodbye to my kitty :(
We took him to the vet and she told us pretty quickly that without any test she knew the probable issue(s) was not good. They were closing and he was very dehydrated so he should be transferred to the emergency vet if we wanted any further testing. They warned us it would be expensive but I decided that I wanted to know what it was before making any decisions.
They were super nice at the after hours. They did a quick look at him and told us the order of testing. She said we could go and they would call with results. We had Felicity with us so we needed to eat and get her to bed. She called around 10:30 saying the cursory test for FIP an incurable virus was positive. I drove over and got to see him for a bit and then it was time.
I know it was the right thing but I am really sad. He was my first pet on my own and I had him for just over 10 years. I wasn't ready to say goodbye.

Cleaning the master bathroom this morning. Ugh, hate it does not describe accurately how I feel about this task. We let it get way too far gone but the kids pitched in and helped with a good attitude and it is done now! 
Planning a ride of some kind for today. Not sure if it will be inside or outside.

A little sore today, but glad I got my run in. It actually wasn't as bad as expected. The bruising I have is just below the hip joint, so no pain when running.

I really screwed up though by not shifting my schedule, all was nice and dry on the bridges on the greenway today. Lesson learned!

I had a fatbike friend grab a painting in Crested Butte for me last weekend, and had promised I would make chocolate chip cookies for he and his sons as payment. So, spent the morning baking cookies with the kids, then headed over to Staunton to pick up the painting. There were a bunch of fatbikers meeting to ride there, but I opted out since I knew there would be a 3 mile hike-a-bike breaking trail on the climb. I got a lot of crap for showing up in my regular clothes. I know, I'm such a wimp!
Came home and did a long ride at Elk Meadow while Nate took the kids down to his parents house to spend the night. Now we're heading out to dinner. I'm beat, hope I rally with some food!

Been awhile since I actually went to the gym! It felt good. Balance sucks though.

Another busy day coming up. Chest & arms on my own followed by spin class this morning with a bonus group swim class this afternoon. I need to find shoes and some gaudy jewelry to wear with my outfit tonight. I got it last night and if I had more time to do things, I would go a different route because the outfit makes me look like a short round balloon. But, the party is tonight, and I'm going to go with confidence and have fun with it! Fred even got in the spirit last night and found a rainbow tie dye shirt in the back of his closet. He made a Barry Goldwater sign that's hysterical. He'll get a lot of mileage out of it tonight.
