Early morning walk with Emma


In other news, you may recall my post of November 10th in which I said that my mother was losing her mind?  She had decided to have ham for Thanksgiving with all of the same side items except stuffing and mashed potatoes. 

Since then, I have been walking around and saying to Kevin, "No turkey for you! Ham!"  Then I crack up.

Well, while we were out of town, my mother sent me a note that she may have a smoked turkey breast as well as a honeybaked ham (but still not stuffing or mashed potatoes or gravy).  Yes, for six people, a ham and a turkey breast.  I can only assume that my aunt said, "But you have to have turkey for Thanksgiving!" and my mom caved.

We have still not addressed the, "But I really like turkey so we should do a turkey with all of the trimmings for your birthday."  (or not!)

Kevin and I went to the Big Eastern barista competition in Durham this afternoon.  Very interesting.  We saw the person who came in second do her presentation (Melanie, are you paying attention? >> Hadassah Wilson, Square One Coffee, Lancaster, PA)

LTF Spin Class with Lois

Sport
  • Physical Therapy
  • 45m

I graduated to some strength type exercises today. More band work at home. Still need that last little bit of external rotation but the internal rotation is good. Continuing with the snow angels and sleeper stretches. Jeff said that if I want to try some breast stroke in the pool, that would be OK.


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.

I was a bad influence. We did the breakfast buffet again. In my defense, the original plan was to eat out for two breakfasts and eat in the room the other days. Kevin could have passed but u wanted pancakes or waffles. Bad J! Bad! Hotel gym brick on tsp for the morning and we are seeing "O" tonight. Somehow I don't see lunch in my future...

P. S. I'll check on with everyone on Friday or over the weekend. I'm on my phone now and finding it difficult to inspire, etc.

P. P. S. Delayed onset Urp from breakfast. Oops!

Dinner at Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina in Crystals.  Kevin and I split a pizza and a salad.  Both were very good.
