As usual, when Bob's out of town, my whole to do list goes out the window in favor of fun with friends and TV watching.   Gah, will I ever grow up?    Tonight I am meeting a friend for dinner/drinks right after work.  I am not going to pretend I will run when I get home, but I do need to at least make an effort to do a few things around the house and also get to bed a bit earlier. 
--
I did pretty good!  I finished my laundry and some odds and ends around the house. Plus, in bed and sleeping by about 10:30.  Yay me.

2nd grade this year hmm..... they've got a long way to go. Great kids, no real behavior problems but at that same time lots of little behaviors if that makes sense. Things like frequently off task so not following along with teacher's directions, pencils/markers/scissors in their mouths all freaking day (it's seriously GROSS), can't find their folder/book/assignment BLAH. 
I was so tired after work but I didn't get up early to swim and DH said he'd bring the kids home from school so I went to the pool. It felt really good actually. Home and my doorbell starts ringing with neighborhood kids or parents looking for their kids or my phone ringing because my kids want to play longer somewhere else. It was like a Calgon Moment lol. 
 

HASfit today total body strength with a warm up which I skipped since I swam already and a cool down which I completed.

A bit "twingy" on the ankle this morning. I did some aqua bouncing last night, so maybe that was it? I'm not sure, because it felt ok after running and throughout the day. I hate to call it overuse, because it sure isn't that. But I do have to be better about easing into it. So, no running today. But, a longer trip through the single track this afternoon is on tap.  That seems to be a non-issue for the ankle.
DR testing tomorrow, which has already become a clusterf*ck.  I sent the procedural doc to IT. They asked "What do you need from us?" Oh, I don't know, the first paragraph of the doc spells out the resources for the test. Let's try communicating a bit, you know, that's where I send you something to read and you READ IT! Three emails and 2 phone calls later and we have 2 supervisors involved in a conference call. Well, actually it was 1 supervisor, since the IT Director couldn't be bothered. Hmmm, I sense a theme. Ah well, I can only control my stuff and not worry abo[...]

9:19am: Feeling a little anxious this morning, like I've forgotten something important. Something just beyond the reaches of my memory and it's driving me just a little batty.
Considering the idea of taking up the whole biking thing again. Not quite yet -- I want to get solidly into half training before doing anything that might mess that up -- but my interest is piqued by the smart trainers out there. Back in the day I bought a CompuTrainer, which was cool but, even back then, SUCH a PITA. I'd like to upgrade to something that has approximately 12 fewer cords and cables involved. Anyone instead in a used CT?
Trainer beatdown and 3 mile run on the agenda for after work.

Dentist this morning. Two teeth on the R side. One on top gets a new filling, one on bottom gets the old filling which lifted out of the tooth to be removed and a new one put in. Trying to eat mashed potatoes for lunch without being able to know if I closed my mouth or not.

Going to do the best I can with food the next couple of days. We have a 2-day off site team thing, so multiple catered meals starting tomorrow. Then tonight dinner with my old team at a restaurant. Always something it seems!
Bentley was more steady this morning and gulped down soft food, good signs. He's still super upset and whining/crying, but knowing that he slept just fine last night I feel better. Going to go home at lunch to check on him to make sure. 
Going to have to dig deep into my willpower tonight to run after my work dinner. I was up early this morning and totally could have; I was just worried about Bentley so snuggled with him instead.

On our way home from an amazing long weekend. Our friends, and their home are beyond welcoming. They have a guest house passd their pool with two guest rooms. A total mini house. It is stocked with books and well disguised hand rails so my mom was in 7th heaven. Bill retired the day we arrived so we got to celebrate with the as well. We had a big time at the shrimp fleet festival, we watched the total eclipse from their pool listening to the Dark side of the Moon from the local radio station with pina coladas. Mom even had two!!. Then we got the good news that Jim's cancer is local and can be treated by radiation. Amazing news. Even the dogs got along and had a good time. It was a great time.
