It got cold and rainy here. Yuck. I just learned that my cousin did not get good news on the cancer he is fighting. I spared my mom the news several months ago in hopes that he would fight it. I am not sure how to tell her...perhaps I will leave that for my brother. My brother is not taking it well...this cousin is like the brother he never had. :( And the woman I teach linedancing to just "lost" her MIL unexpectedly. Conclusion - life is fragile, enjoy each day!!!
GR, yuck on the swollen eye! Although never so severe, I have early spring itchy eye allergies. I tried about four different eye drops/pills, and the only thing that worked for me was ibuprofen...but your issue is much more severe than mine. Karla, you are an inspiration for running and going forward with everything you have going on!!! My dh uses "NuSkin" on blisters after they form, he uses body glide and/or vaseline to prevent them. Jean, do you tape your hands when doing silks? And I would be terrified of most parkour stunts, as I even find that I am tripping on things while walking. :O SJ, I think it is wonderful that there are still courteous people out there that offer you there seat! And just keep going forward...you are so conscientious about what you eat and about working out...you still sound healthy to me! Oh, and Karla, I think that I might be gripping" my trapezius muscle and/or hunching over more, due to stress, which is giving me major pain. My knee pain is from where those dang cowboy boots (with no support and orthotic) while dancing...it's hard wear and tear on the knees...good thing my linedance friends are busy this week so that my knees get a break.
Lots of work today, and I don't like the classes at the gym tonight, so I don't know what I will do tonight...more work? organize to pack? dogtraining? paint? I think painting sounds relaxing. Ooohhh. I need a mani/pedi since I have a major work event with a social hour/event I have to go to in the evening. Never a dull moment!
