Brother bailed on his visit. Weather in NYC was bad so he thought his flight would get canceled. It didn't. So his planned visit is a no go, AGAIN. I am sure he will head to Sag Harbor with his boyfriend. Oh well he missed a chance to connect with his niece and nephew!

A couple of interviews next week. Who knows, maybe I will have a job by the end of the summer????

Time to start cleaning! I need to clean the trim so it can go up, scrub the place down, and get curtains hung, then I can sit back and see what else we want to do before guests start arriving. We don't really have a decor plan for after the party, so I don't want to just start buying things that won't work when everyone goes home. One more week and it will be over. I am beyond ready!

John and I are going to DC next week, he has a conference (that he plans on making just enough appearances at to be seen but not attend every session).  I had to get groceries for the Things this morning so they can eat.  
Thing One bought her Kia Soul, she was able to locate a couple of comparable cars  in reasonably local proximity to show the dealer that they were priced too high--got it  for just under 14K.  She's happy.  It rides well.
Miss Thing is at a food festival with a friend this afternoon....
My check engine light came on the Edge last evening so I dropped it off at the mechanic this afternoon & said I would be back next weekend so not to rush.
Got all my cleaning done.  John has mowed the grass and is cleaning the pool.
That workout had enough push ups for a month!  Holy cow that workout HURT!!

DS wants to run The Race to the Cross 5K this morning that our church hosts. He had a temper tantrum last week when I was encouraging him to get up and go run to get ready for these 5ks coming up that he says he wants to PR. Said I am pressuring him. Really, asking you to get your face out from in front of a TV screen 2 x a week is pressure? So fine I have backed off all the way and he has not done any distance running in the last week and a half and he can figure it out on his own. He runs a lot when he plays with neighborhood friends so I guess that will have to do.
 I don't feel like running a race this morning but I do feel like running. Not sure what I'm going to do so far I am leaning towards not racing then I can see him finish and I'll run on my own later maybe go to the trail or something. This course is not pretty, has no shade. It's just running on asphalt from the church to a big cross and back, nothing scenic at all but a fundraiser for our church.

I'm trying to talk my sister in to doing the race with me as her first run.  Since I'm starting from scratch we're both well matched in terms of abilities right now.  She lives in the US so it'll be a good meeting point to sight see and hang out together.

Left side hip, lower back and my neck are irritated today. I have been falling asleep on the couch for over a month every night and I think my back is out of whack from that plus catching all the little ones who want to jump in the pool during swim lessons. It's bad enough I'm hitting the Aleeve and I'll call the chiro on Monday. It's making me not feel good all over actually. 
Cloudy day today, looked like it was going to rain all day and it finally did. DS took the day off, we took LIttle MIss to JCPenny's shopping. Our local store is closing and they have a lot of clothes on sale. So far just 50% off except for sale clothes are an extra 20% but that is winter stuff. 

core work, planks, 50 push ups on my knees, some arm stuff no video just did whatever didn't irritate my back
