I haven't checked in for days because the internet has been sketchy at the house and I've been too busy at work.
That being said, I think about my SPals every day, and hope that all of you are having a healthy week.
We are going to Albuquerque on Thursday to see our best bud who moved there. Can't wait. Lots of work to get done before then.
Heart daughter and her sweetheart walked in at 5:30 this morning after a 12-hour drive and slept for a couple of hours then left for Casa De Fruta to work this weekend's festival. Dogs alerted us, of course, so we've been up since then. I baked banana bread, swept, dusted, and have been doing general housecleaning stuff that I'll finish when I'm done here.
As in RIGHT THIS MINUTE because my husband is heading to the back to change the bedding!
AACK -- have a great weekend. I'll try to check in on you when everyone's gone on Sunday night...... xo

I feel every second of my stated age this morning!
It dawned on my last night, as I was running around the store, putting stuff away, bending and stooping and reaching as I dusted Zone 1, that I've been missing a Fitness Tracking opportunity all of these years. I move "with urgency" at J#2 -- the managers love it, my co-workers shake their heads in bafflement -- and last night was no exception.
Am I paying for it today!!!

Sunday 9:06 am, and I've been up since crackodawn, as Santana woke me up to take her out to tinkle. Good dog. Better than peeing on the rug. Bad dog.
Yesterday we went to watch my cousin race at Laguna Seca. Although I grew up within a few miles of LS, I had never been there before, so it was a lot of fun. Of course, it resulted in a bad food day, but...
I worked tons of hours this week, and got a lot of work done. The tension in the office is 6/10, which is an improvement on the 8/10 that it was the week before.
My childhood friend, Barb, is visiting late this afternoon. I haven't seen her in at least 20 years, and am looking forward to it. Gotta clean house.
I FINALLY finished the books that were bogging me down. Blind Assassin, by Margaret Atwood (whom I love), ended up being really good. Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters, ended up as it started -- ponderous and with totally unlikable characters. I love Victorian novels -- not this one. The writing was actually good, but the story was convoluted even by genre standards. Glad to be done and on to something fun. Nope, I have no interest in seeing the play next year.
I (surprisingly) got a bronze Spark Tracker medal this week, in spite of losing Sparky for most of a day and forgetting to put him back on before we went out one night this week. Bodes well for my overall activity.
Now to get the food under control...too many events out.
Have a wonderful week, everyone -- xoxoxo

I got lots of steps in at J#2 today. We had a lovely evening with our ABQ friend's heart-daughter, and, after she left, I synced Sparky with my Start page and saw that I had about 600 steps to go to hit 10K, so I grabbed the mini tramp, cranked up Fleetwood Mac, and jogged/jumped for couple of thousand steps. I was a little confused as to when Sparky didn't credit me and Mini with our 23 minute work out, so I plugged it in.
Tomorrow -- No plans. Maybe do a couple of errands. Maybe we'll go visit my mom. Maybe we'll to --- Nothing!
Yesterday would have been Dad's 85th birthday. I miss him every day.

Up 2 pounds.
I'll have it off by the weekend. I've been away from the office for most of the week, on business, eating out, or eating nothing then "making up for it" at dinner. Add to this the ongoing work drama, and I've had a bad week. Water? Who drinks water? I drink beer.
This is a bad strategy.
'Nuff said. New day. New Start.
