7:30am: Okay, so all I know is this: I've been feeling really good lately. Like, mentally and physically. I'm not as tired as I had been. I'm excited about things in my life. I'm still the same out-of-shape that I have been for the past year, but feel like it's all manageable and I'm making progress. I don't know, people ... it must be something in the water. Or maybe in the birth control pills? That's really the only thing that's changed. Seems improbable to me, but whatever the cause, I'm not going to question it into submission.
I should do stairs today, but I ALSO should study. If the weather were going to be cooperative, I'd just move stairs to Thursday, but I'm not sure it's going to be. Of course, I can do stairs in the rain. Hmm. I'll have to make a game-time call on this one. I'd like to get this second exam out of the way tomorrow, but in order to do that, I need to put in some quality time tonight, for sure. The other option is to put the test off until Friday. Or maybe [...]

We're heading to Dayton this morning. Fred's daughter bought him a membership in the Wright Flyer Association which includes a ride in a replica Wright Brothers biwing airplane. Fred is all kinds of excited. Me, I'm the photographer and videographer. Should be fun!

Had to cut workouts short this morning. Flat out ran out of time. I'll do them more justice tonight when I'm not so rushed. Food is packed. I'm ready for a solid day 3!

My quads are better today but still sore. I'm holding off on any hard rides until the soreness is pretty much gone.

Haven't had time to run to the store yet, so I made the kids sandwiches with my last four pieces of bread, turned around to grab something, and the dog ate them!!! Grrr.... Sent them to school with lunchboxes full of snacks. Must be the last week of school! :)
Dropped Owen off at Montessori school this morning for his visit and assessment. I hope he likes it, I hope they like him. I feel they are somewhat limited in spots at this point, so I just want to get this all finished and know what we're doing next year! Well, verdict is that they loved him and are sending me an enrollment contract, and while I couldn't get him to say much, he did tell me he liked it and that he likes the things that are different than his current classroom. Success?
Sent off a thoughtful response to the Montana show coordinator, and a couple of additional images. Hopefully that will appease him. I'm sort of apathetic about it - told him I see his point and I apologize, but I feel I sent my best image and[...]

Workers were late this morning but in their defense it is POURING down rain and everything is totally messy, which delayed them. Nice guys and I didn't get any weird feelings from them. They are only in the house for a few hours today doing prep work (that needs to sit/dry), then tomorrow they will start refinishing ALL THE THINGS. The sink is going to take an extra day, but I really want that dark sink. I left them in the house and showed them how to lock the door. A little nervous, but Bentley is at daycare and I removed the couple of pricey/portable things that were out in the open (iPad, Garmin watch, some jewelry) so short of totally robbing me of things like TVs and furniture, I'm not sure what damage they could do. 
Bentley was really nervous going into daycare, and the "little dog" room had a few puppies that are big breeds (a couple of labs, an aussie, etc.) so they were kind of rambunctious. I watched for a good 10 minutes before leaving and he just trotted around tr[...]

Home today. Lovely weekend away to Muskoka. I love cottaging. I love waking up to see the calm of a lake and all the trees and such. It was buggy so the outdoors were a little less enjoyable given how amazing the temperatures were. 
Long drive home - and, I hit a tree in the cottage driveway and took out my right tail light - ARGH. So annoying. I was happy to be home. Happy to have some away time and happy to come home. When Felicity woke up from her nap she came right out to give me big cuddles. Melt my heart.
