Morning!seattle-have fun on your trip with dbf! hope the weather holds for you. mia-oh man, really? do you have to go back to the same drug testing place? RR: 10 miles this morning on the treadmill. didn't lift last night bc i felt awful. maybe tonight. NRR: ugh, had the worst stomachace/nausea last night, it was so bad my back was hurting. i curled up with a heat pack and blankets after work and fell asleep. i am feeling a little better today but still not great, its there, just not as bad as last night. FR: um not much yesterday, had a tiny bit of leftovers and some ritz crackers last night.
RR: ended up getting really into the cleaning yesterday, vacuumed and then mopped all the floors (whole house is laminate), then I rearranged my younger DD's bedroom in hopes to make it into an office area. I have a desk in the garage I want to move in there.
NRR: see up above.
FR: Made chicken tortilla soup yesterday. Turned out amazing.
sjp: Sorry you don't feel well. I'm surprised you didn't take the day off of running today after not eating much yesterday and feeling so bad.
Seattle: enjoy the backpacking!!
RR: Made it to the top of Katahdin -- it was a tough hike! It wasn't so much the altitude gain, although it was about 5,000 up (I think it's 5,800-something), but the footing after the first couple of miles was terrible ... lots of scrambling over boulders and "trails" (ha) made mostly of sharp-edged rocks. I have a bit of trouble with my left eye (macular degeneration), so I found it hard to trip lightly over the rocks like my DS and DH did. More up and down for me ... was so sore the next day!
NRR: Aside from the hike, we had a great time seeing DS's campus, going to the school's new museum, seeing friends in Belfast, etc. Came back yesterday and did a little bit of work. Today back into the grinder at work, band practice tonight, birthday dinner for DD's DBF tomorrow night, then we're headed to Kansas for a band gig Saturday night and Sunday. Busy few days coming up!
SJP: Wonder what’s causing your stomachache? That sounds awful! Did you work today? Sounds like a day in bed might be good to make sure you completely recover.
Mia: Before we left on our trip, I finally got motivated to do a thorough house cleaning and some rearranging – it felt really good! Determined to keep some semblance of order now. I love chicken tortilla soup, but almost never make it – I should.
