Happy April Fool's Day!!!

Today is a travel day. I will be heading to Baltimore for the next three days... back home on Thursday night.
Tomorrow I am a presenter at the Green Intelligent Buildings conference, so I will be spending the flight and evening reviewing my presentation, and making sure that I have a smooth delivery.

I hope that the roads are clear after the snow from yesterday and last night... and that the plane is clean, and does not need to be deiced, adding to a travel delay.

Then, I am home for one day, and on Saturday I head down to Madison to see my nephew in his high school's production of the musical, Seussical.

Happiness is...

  • No longer using the penalty avatar from February!
  • Arriving safely in DC and the beautiful ride to Baltimore - lots of flowering trees
  • Green leaves and grass

  • Health data: Sleep: 3 Hours slept: 5

Monday - March 31

Snow, snow, and more snow.

Running the trails with Dawn.

1.97 miles at 3.1 mph
Run ave HR = 164 BPM

Another wonderful day:

Spent the morning doing a little cleaning, and then work on my presentation.
Dawn came over around 10:30 to yak and go for a great run. Came back home, yakked a bit more and then she was on her way. I then met up with Nancy and Tanner to go for our routine trip to Target.
Now I am back home for a little bit, then I pick up Dawn at 6:00 to go to a bicycle maintenance class for the evening. Chelsea enjoyed meeting Dawn, and loved her bye-bye to flirt with Tanner.  Little Tanner has learned to blow kisses - yeah, he knows how to win over the girls!

Today is going to be a fun day:

  • I am listening to a robin sing its beautiful springtime song
  • I am working from home to "script" my presentation for next week's conference
  • I will then meet up with N for her birthday lunch, and will also get a tour of the US Federal Court House bldg. in Mpls - sweet!
  • The weather today is supposed to be exquisite!
  • Today is the "second target date" for finding out the status of the negotiations with the Seller's bank
  • I am sipping a delightful cup of Aveda pepperment-licorice tea (mmm)
  • The no-coffee brain fog seems to be lifting!!
  • Tomorrow I will be going to an all-day conference for the local chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), which should be a lot of fun, including great networking opportunities. I have belonged to the society for over a year, but life and travel keep getting in the way of participating in local events.
Life is great, isn't it?
