It has been a busy, and fun, couple of weeks. I am in the process of moving back in with my honey - amazing what 12+ months of personal growth can do for two people.  It is wonderful to have the "pack" reunited - I missed the house, the boys (two goldies, two kitties), and, obviously, Val. 
She is doing great after having the heart attack, and will be going back to work, next week.  Even though my "vitals" are great (BP, cholesterol, etc.) I have joined her in "heart healthy" eating - including saying good-bye to my beloved cheese {sigh}.  Okay, perhaps once in a while I will indulge, but very rarely. 

I am still a bit up in the air about this weekend's Oly triathlon.  My back is being a bit finicky lately, but I have also been pushing myself a bit more, and also dramatically reduced the amount of ibuprofen that I have been taking, and virtually eliminated the use of flexeral.  I have left a detailed message for Dr. Scott to get his educated opinion, since he has been working with me this whole time.

One of the exciting aspects is that Val and I picked up used, matching 2008 Yamaha Zuma scooters... they are fantastic!!!  I have been commuting to work on mine the past couple of days... what a blast! The previous owners modified a few things - they removed all of the decals, painted the gray parts black, as well as the chrome seat rail... it is a sleek looking machine.  Plus, they adjusted the throttle a bit so this bad boy can almost hit 40 mph!

 

Tuesday - July 8

The past 5 days were "minimal computer usage" days... I will need to catch up on a few things, hopefully tonight!
