Well my oldest son received his Arrow of Light with his den tonight. The end of a cub scout journey and a new adventure awaits. The boys all made it and are heading four different directions, other the the pack pine wood derby next month, who knows if they will ever all be together again.

Kids finally back in school, need to get some serious painting done. Four day weekend with a ton of social stuff means not getting much done. I forced the kids to have a chill day at home yesterday just so I could catch up on laundry and cleaning. 
Still trying to get the gallery in Littleton to send me the money she owes me. It's getting a bit frustrating. We're a month and a half out, and she told me she'd put it in the mail last Wednesday. Still not here. I don't know her well enough to know if she's just a flake, or if she's jerking me around because she doesn't have the money to pay me. Either way, not cool. I don't understand how she can be trying to talk me into showing at her gallery, and then not paying. I don't need the money to pay my bills, but I'm feeling pretty negative about being jerked around.

Run tonight - time to get back on plan. Stupid road crew put a huge berm in the driveway last night. I purposely cleared the road in front of my driveway to avoid that. It was up over the running boards of the truck. Really? Come on. Worked on that for a good while Chris made (ordered) :) dinner.

Another 4 inches by the time we got home last night, then another Winter Storm Advisory between now and 11am tomorrow for another 3-5 inches. I am tapping out on Winter. The last two years have been mild with barely any snow (6 inches or so total for the winter) but this year we are paying for them. So done.

This is the first time in my life when I have not strenuously pushed myself to do things.
I'm trying to BE instead of DO.
Human BEing, not human DOing.
It feels very strange, and slightly uncomfortable, even immoral, like laziness.
But I'm trying. I shouldn't have to try very hard, either 
I'm pretty sure most people would still consider that I'm doing way too much.
But I'm trying to not-try.

Took my mom out for her 89th birthday on Sunday night.

Gonna hold off on lifting until tomorrow to give my neck and back a teeny tiny break. Am going to attempt working from home tomorrow, so maybe I can do my walk outside. We'll see if I can get my system to cooperate.
Orrrrr.... maybe I just do legs at lunch. That way I'm still lifting... Will ride bike tonight.
In terms of the list: REST Run 1 (1:00) Run 2 (1:30) Swim 1 Swim 2 Bike 1 (1:00) Bike 2 (1:15) Lift 1 Lift 2

Busy day ahead! Will get in whatever activity I can, but doesn't look hopeful. Nutrition is spot on!

The Mayo PT said he thought I had an SI joint problem, which totally makes sense!  Last night I took a generic Aleve (on recommendation of regular Dr) and holy cats did that help.   My sleep was much less disrupted and I could tell because it didn't hurt every time I rolled over.  Really incredible.  I hope this is a step in actually healing things and not just temporary. As I type this it's about 12 hours since I took the pill, so I will see how I feel as the day goes on.

Well it's Tuesday....I am halfway through the work week (have a vacation day on Friday)  Will I make it??  Sigh, on the phones today and the program that allows me to see the queue has decided NOT to work.  It's like being blind, never knowing where I am in the queue!

Functional Strength class tonight. Last one of the series.
Zoe hit by car. Janyne stitches from post crash bite.
Zoe's initial x-rays at regular vet looked good.  Kevin transferred her to the emergency (24-hour) vet for observation.  She will be there 24-48 hours.  
He did this while I was in the ER.  No swimming for 14 days. No running for 2 days.

This morning I had one of the best swims in awhile, maybe because it has been one of only a few swims I have had in awhile! I dunno.
Anyways, last night I did my ride at around 10:30 PM. I was proud for getting it done and then this morning I did not want to get out of bed, but I had a thought. I thought this: "If you do not get up and swim, then that late night ride was for nothing!" Revelation!!!
Anyways I did get up and swim my 1000 yards, and I swam it straight, which is kind of big for me since I can't tell you the last time I swam that far in one session. I started counting at lap 20 and went backwards!  I think that really helped me stay focused. Anyways, it felt great! It felt fast (it wasn't)
Actually looking forward to the sprint race in May!
