Something like that. Walk. Thought I'd do the two mile loop, but at 32 degrees 15mph north wind and misty my feet were frozen just past a mile and I decided that was enough. I love being out when the weather is 'bad' but I don't like being cold. Love good clothes. I suppose I should figure out something warm for my feet to run in. All my running shoes are designed to keep my feet cool. They work great at that when the temperature is in the 30's. :)

I missed my weights while I was gone. Took it easy today because I know that I can hurt myself, and I don't want to do that.

 


We cannot fail to meet the same problems as did our forefathers, and learning their answers may help us to act upon the mas intelligently as they did, and may even, perhaps, teach us to avoid making always the same mistakes.  - Anne Fermantle

Choose discomfort over resentment. - Brene' Brown

Massage today with my regular therapist.  So wonderful to be in her hands again.  She just can feel what needs help, and she's pretty awesome. 

I've been working on a profile for match.com.  I think it's time for me to get back in the game.  It will be three years in January since my divorce.  My massage therapist said she's glad I'm "back on the market."    ... another piece of meat out there.  not quite prime rib, but maybe a nice steak. 

I am suffering from the 'moving stupids.'  Hopefully that will pass as I get situated here again.

Cold and snow mixed with light rain today  Brrr.  Fire in the fireplace day. 

Thursday - November 21

Bike
  • 1h 20m
  • 15.00 miles
  • 11.25 Mi/hr

City ride. Pretty much a guess on both distance and time. Rode to a park 2 mi from the house, then very easy pace with the group, visiting, through town and around and about, twice around the gazebo at A street park, up and down the hospital parking garage, stopping at the top to take in the lights and what was left of the sunset. Then to a pizza place for dinner. The cold front arrived while we were at dinner, and we rode back into a pretty stiff wind. Fun ride and I took enough clothes. I do need to do something about a better light for the commuter bike if I'm going to continue doing these rides.

Today I quit Albuquerque.  It's my childhood home, and today I leave - to not come back.  Very strange time.  All the remaining stuff I needed to get rid of is just gone.  I put an ad on Craigs list - free stuff on the curb.  It included two metal outside storage sheds, wood, paint, antifreeze, mattress, an old homemade wood laundry hamper / folding table.  All gone in a matter of a couple of hours. 

The house is done.  The realtor put up his sign, and it officially lists on Thursday.  Today after I pack up my workstation and my stuff, load the car and I'm out of here.  Kind of sad.  Good bye childhood home. 

I was thinking last night, that all the stuff remembered, or learned new - the major street names and order, where to get good meat, where to get the special ice cream, the bike trails and bike shops, the good riding and running routes, - all that stuff is now irrelevant.  It's all just an exercise in flexibility now.  Mostly it's strange to leave my Dad's house 'never' to come back.  But as my Dad would say, "things change."

I'll try to get a little work done this morning, pack and go.  The trash pick up has happened, and the thrift store guy is coming about 1:00 to pick up the last storage shed, and anything else I want to get rid of.  I'll see if the neighbor wants my left over cleaning materials. Just a couple little chores to do on the house.  Back screen door needs reattaching.  The plumber knocked it off it's hinges when he was bringing in the new hot water heater.
