7:18am:  Well, I messed up my all-peach November yesterday ... ended up heading to the hospital right after my car appointment and didn't get home until almost 8pm, at which point I had some dinner and went to bed.
Update on my Mom:  she's mostly just annoyed right now (good sign!).  The kidney infection got into her bloodstream which is bad, but because they caught it early enough, it's definitely curable.  She'll be in the hospital, though, for another 3-4 days which isn't making her happy.  She still is going through cycles of having a high fever (that's what an infection will do to ya), but when that isn't occurring, she's feeling decent (though tired).  They also are concerned about EKG results, but the doctor wants some additional tests done because apparently the EKG isn't always definitive.  
Right now I'm planning on heading home after work, getting in some training and then heading out to the hospital.

Worked late last night on the Jang deal so was too tired tonight to workout. Should try to fit in workouts in the morning or lunchtime. After work will often lead to low motivation when tired. However, in this case, I only had around 5 hours of sleep so perhaps rest was warranted.

Framing up some paintings to take down to my gallery in Cherry Creek this afternoon. Then I've got a show opening tonight here in town. Kind of glad show season is starting up. I start to feel aimless in the studio during the off season. No shows, no deadlines, no sales => no motivation. Which is dumb because that's when I need to be working my butt off to build up inventory, but I just don't learn that well, apparently.
Might try to run before I get the kids - we'll see how my schedule shakes out.
Next week will be a little rough on the workout schedule. Kids are off all week for Thanksgiving. I'm looking forward to hanging out with them and getting some things organized around the house, but it'll be hard to fit in workouts. Aspen is getting too old to want to go to playschool at the gym. Maybe I can just have her bring a book and read while I hit the weights??

Push-ups and core work, plus a ton of stretching. Holy cow my hips and IT bands are tight!! Yow. I really neede[...]

Spent the morning shopping a little and walking all over the freaking city. Took dd's american girl doll to have her hair fixed up at the american girl doll store. Picked out some legos for the kids from the lego store. Then we walked accross town to sports authority because some nit wit left her swimsuit in the hotel locker room or threw it out with the towles or something and needed another swimsuit! Duh so pissed about that. At least that suit I lost only cost 10 bucks and I really like the one I bought but it was a lot more then 10 bucks in the city. Back to the hotel for dh to get ready and off to his conference and I chilled a bit in the room then worked out. Dinner tonight was hosted by the school districts finance company at a place called river roast. It was really good food. One of the hosts has 7 kids and the are a performing family so everyone plays fiddle or guitar. They were the entertainment and played bluegrass music. It was fun and they were really good.

Stats taken after gym session and before dinner, %water 68.5, muscle 37.7, bone 3.9. Though it was cold out with wind and temps in the 30s, I decided I wanted to run outside today instead of on the treadmill at the gym. So, just did the same loop as the other night only the other direction. Rather cold against the wind, let me tell ya! 2 miles into things and my right knee/upper calf was giving problems. That settled later and found I was doing okay later. I had forgotten to retape the area with Rock Tape and did that before I went to the gym later after work. Hopefully, that will help.

Tomorrow: I'm still considering an LSD run though I probably shouldn't considering my right knee/upper calf. But, if I take it easy enough, I think I'll be okay.

Sunday: as it's supposed to rain, I will probably just be a gym rat. I sure wish I could get back on my trainer. I may try again the following as it will be 3 weeks then without riding.

Monday: though it will be warm, taking t[...]

Back at home.  We picked up Emma last night and she is glad to be home as well. She stays with a petsitter but her regular sitter was not available last weekend so she stayed with a different sitter until Monday and was with her regular one Monday-Thursday.  The new sitter has two huskies.  Emma didn't like being bossed by the huskies so she set up house (1) under a desk and (2) in the laundry room.  Poor Emma!  Anyway, she as properly worshipped by her regular sitter and has spent he time since we picked her up getting out each of her favorite toys and playing with them ... and sleeping on them.
Today will be going to spin class, going to PT, getting groceries, etc.
