Chris got home at 5am this morning. Trying to keep the dogs quiet and get ready without waking him is harder than I thought. We are hosting a BBQ for Matthew's (Chris's son) 15th birthday at our house on Saturday. I am already stressing. :|

Nice weather for a run. Cooler than Monday, but much less humidity and a nice little breeze.

Starting to feel some fitness come back, I'm loving the re-addition of swimming and cycling to my schedule, my weight is down to within 2lbs of race weight, and I'm getting the itch to race again. My perfect storm.

Overslept....then the work computer was a hot mess this morning.  Changed passwords last night but evidently the reset didn't take properly.  What a cluster.....Running at lunch to burn off my crazies.  PiYo Sweat later.

Much better sleep last night. 7 full, complete, non-stop hours. It is supposed to rain today, which should mess with plans to bike. I also have painting to do in the kitchen, or at least painting prep. 
We recently uploaded our pictures to the Amazon Cloud, since Prime gives you unlimited picture storage. 40+ GB of pictures and 2 days of uploading from 2 laptops and we are finally done. Now on to the backups of her recipes and other stuff.
This is from our Alaskan cruise a few years back. It ended in Vancouver and we stayed an extra night, just to roam around the city. It was a beautiful city, and the opening of the travel door. We'd done a few cruises in the Caribbean prior, but this trip really started opening our eyes to what is around us. Our recent trip to California pushed that door open and we are in the midst of a couple of trip plans for the future.

5:30 pm - Oh my gosh, I feel like an entirely different person after finally getting out for a good long ride in the sunshine!! It was 70 degrees and beautiful down in Denver. Amazing how much better my mood is after I get in a good effort outside.
8 am - I'm not entirely sure where my motivation has gone, but I've been lazy the past few days for no real reason at all. I suppose I'm stressed and it's sapping my energy, but I should know better - I *always* feel better after a good workout! 
Riding with Galen from his place in Lakewood at 11. Happy to meet up with him and get a plan going for getting back in shape. A little nervous that he's going to kick my . We'll see ;)
Nate is all peeved about Aspen's school. She came home with math homework that was stuff she was doing in 1st grade, and apparently they just tell her to help the other kids when she's done with her work at school. Looking more and more like we will be school poor for the next 4-8 years as we lean more an[...]

Nothing today. Met my friend Robin for dinner. Spent most of the day on the couch icing and trying to get this knee back into some sort of useful shape.

Tired, slept in this morning.  Cold has settled into a nasty chest cough so opted not to swim or run.  New bike fitting this afternoon, my Dad is going with me, not sure if that's good or bad since we had words yesterday.  Seems I am not permitted to voice an opinion that is different than his without him shouting vulgarities at me.  Showed up at our house for dinner having had too much to drink and he turns into an Ahole when he's had a few too many.  Things have been going pretty well up until now.  He feels an obligation to help my brother who is currently in jail for battery on an elderly person and is coming up to trial.  The case is about to fall apart because my brother in his narcissistic sociopathic way has convinced my Dad to do whatever he wants and I'm pretty certain he now will not testify against him.  My worst nightmare is that the jerk gets released from jail and heads this way to be near my Dad.  Dad mentioned that he inte[...]

Homework time was a little better last night except for the timed math facts. Today should be her last timed math facts test this year I think and thank goodness. I can't take it anymore. She literally pulled her hair out of her own head last night over these math facts. Ridiculous. She screams and cries and carries on then does terrible on the homework practice paper barely finishing half the facts so I ask her was that your best effort?  Obviously not........Then you need to do it again because you can sit in class and get a 100 % on the test but act ridiculous like this at home so that tells me you are not putting forth your best effort. And if you start screaming and having a meltdown you'll do it again. What do you know, she composed herself and finished the last problem when the timer went off. Why didn't she just do that the first time? Summer can't get here fast enough because I am over it and so is she.
