Strength class
Not sure I worked quite as hard as Tuesday, but considering that it hurts to laugh may not be such a bad thing.

This week really has been a mess at work. Just two of us to cover means that I spend 90% of my time doing helpdesk stuff (which is fine except that I've got actual projects that need to be completed), so I've been going home and working at night when it's quiet and I can think and get some stuff done.
Weird thing, is that because I don't do this all the time, I'm feeling all sorts of productive (rather than just beat down, which is what would happen if this went on for any length of time). While I would retire in a heartbeat, I still enjoy many aspects of my job and it feels good to get things done.

Swim later and a bike ride as well. Also on the list: painting, spackling, texturing, and voluminous cleaning. All to be done in the tiny confines of our kitchen. We may actually push some of this off until Saturday due to logistics.
I kind of liked how the cell phone tower is nearly obscured by the sunrise in this, yet if you look closely you can see it. Somedays it feels like we are the sun and others we are the tower.

Learned today that one of my close co-workers is getting a divorce. This makes me sad on so many levels, mostly because they have a 6-month old son. She has done an incredible job of keeping her personal life separate from work (I had NO idea), but now that I know the bigger picture I'm hopeful I can be more supportive and sensitive to her situation. Hate hearing this kind of news.
On a more exciting note, there's a job opening in Atlanta that popped up today that meets my career goals. I hate to even blog about it so early, but it excited me! It's with a different division of our parent company, but EXACTLY the job I am looking to move into. And in Atlanta. Need to chat with my boss about it this afternoon.
Last update: Took Bentley to the vet and he has a lower back injury, probably disc related. They gave him some anti-inflammatory pills and said to try and keep him calm, but he will come around slowly. They also warned that he will very likely re-injure himself in the same pl[...]

So far in 2016 I've biked half as far as I did in all of 2015!

Took today completely off from working out of any kind. If I'd had time I would have gone swimming but work is just super busy right now (I'm quoting turn times for two weeks out currently when my normal turn time is 1 week) so that has been taking precedent. Plus looking through my logs I needed a day to take it easy. I'm still in newbie base training mode anyway so no sense overdoing things with no real purpose or intention.

my first colonoscopy is DONE. UGH! Good news...removed 2 polyps (one rather large). Bad news, that means I'll be testing every 3-5 years instead of 10. Doc thought all looked benign. Pathology in a couple weeks. Lord, I dislike this protocol! Breakfast was amazing post.

Lounged all day as prescribed.

Got my productivity hat on. I am in 'go' mode with Darren away and my project ramping up. 
Need to lube my treadmill tonight. 
And because it's my blog i will complain a little. It was last week I sent Darren a link saying i would like to go to the Old Mill which is very near to us for their Mother's Day Buffet. they have several seatings, brunch, lunch and dinner and I didn't care which. So, because I didn't say i wanted him to book it he thought i was going to ... i thought i was being presumptuous just making the announcement that I wanted this particular thing and thought it was pretty obvious that me as the mother in question shouldn't have to book 
Anyway, I only discovered this miscommunication when i asked him if he had booked and he looked all confused saying, 'I thought you were going to' - which at the time peeved me. I don't particularly need anything for Mother's day but I like the effort and I KNOW that if i don't poke a little he will completely fo[...]

Had a horrible headache and was so tired last night. Still feeling the same this morning. Skipped the swim and slept in until 6. I am sure it is just due to stress. Mike's parents left yesterday. I need to stop worrying so much!
