There is a Pacific Screech Owl hanging around out by our bedroom window. I haven't seen him, but he softly calls for a couple of hours every night. I love going to sleep listening to him.

My foot was so swollen last night that I was scared. I googled it and fortunately found an article that said, "don't be alarmed, this is normal". This morning, it looks the best I've seen it. The swelling is down and we decided it looks better than the foot that hasn't been treated. It's pretty cool how much the scars are fading. Knowing that I'm going to swell up like the Pilsbury Dough Boy, I'll try not to freak out this afternoon.

Knowing my limitations here, I'm starting to settle in. I can do a little wandering around the yard. I have chairs at strategic locations to watch birds and other wildlife. I can get in the pool, but can only kick softly. I think walking on the beach is completely out for this trip. When I'm on solid ground, I can put the bulk of my weight on my heel, [...]

We went to a local Mexican eatery last night and this morning I felt marginal --- not sick per se, just a bit off. Felt sluggish and tired on my run. Oh well, that happens

DH the Superintendent :) declared today a no school day for DD (she got a real kick out of this) so the only thing I asked her to do was read a little. I buckled down and braved cleaning out DS's room. I wanted to be able to throw things away without meltdowns and drama over every little thing so time to do it when he is at school. Then just deal with the drama of him finding out things were missing all at once. So far no meltdowns and he has not missed anything. Cleaning of his room is no small project - this took about 2.5 hours and a lot of deep breaths from me! In the middle of it all DD got all excited and wanted changes to her room so we rearranged a little in there too. She is really good at organizing and sorting. She found 2 shoe boxes in her room and labeled one of them recycle and the other trash then went about sorting every little thing!
Finished DS's room just in time to make it for lunch at the school with my Mentee then we headed to town to meet up with other HS fa[...]

Had to skip the last swim training of the year for sleep as I did not sleep at all the night before.
And then office work (even though it was my OFF day) all day and in the evening I just decided to skip my planned workout. Don't need additional stress these days...
