Fast Friday
6
Fri, 06-14-2013 - 6:41am

I am up and out the door early on Friday...taking dd to the train station so she scan pick up paperwork for her and dh to do the color run this weekend.  I am hoping to take some great ictures, although I am worried that my camera will get ruined with the chalk.  :O. Lots of work today...OH, one of the arrogant guys I work with was transferred to another area.  What I warned the team (and managers) was that this would happen, and they were condescending to me, telling me I was wrong.  Now, they will be eating "crow" although I am sure, through cognitive dissonance, they will try to intellectualize away the fact that I was right. C'est la vie. KARMA, baby. I am still sore from yoga! It was holding airplane and one-legged chair and revolved side-plank for too long. :O MAKE IT A GREAT DAY, EVERYONE!

Karla,It seems like your life is filled with so many critical life/health events. . I am sending positive thoughts, well-wishers, and prayers your way. I think it's fantastic that you still find something positive for yourself through all of the events going on in your life. You're an inspiration to others around you. Gym rat, it's wonderful how you set new goals, and just start working on them immediately. That's great. Jean, I can't believe how you have transformed your workouts this year. Again, another "type a "person who gets things done. And SJ, welcome back. How wonderful to have the opportunities to travel abroad. I don't envy the time change adjustments though. Good luck with that.

I am back in the USA. It was very hard to leave Krakow, but I hope I will go back again. I didn't run this morning, I was awake late and felt time challenged too...excuses....I slept some on the plane, I hope I don't regret it at 3;00 am...I need to google color run....Karla, the baby pools must be busy in your family...I think pregnancy is so scary....I think the safer it becomes, the more we know about stuff that could go wrong, if that makes any sense...have a great weekend everyone!

Wow, Karla--never a dull moment!  At least at 37 weeks, the baby is close enough to full term. Let us know how it goes!

Fresh-good for you! You're probably right and they will never admit you were right.

Oh boy have things become complicated. My daughter went to the doc yesterday to find out if her contractions are real and found out she may have pre-eclampsia. She is slowing dilating but nothing hospital worthy yet. She's not in pain, just anxious now that she knows she is having real contractions. They did tell her this could go on for quite a long time.(I never went through this!) We are waiting for the test results to come back (24 hour tests) and if they are showing pre-eclampsia, they will deliver the baby later today. She is officially 37 weeks today so they are not in any hurry for her to have the baby otherwise. Storm, labor, and now life-threatening condition. If this were a soap opera, what would be next.....national disaster of some sort? lol

It is a gorgeous day today. The sun is shining and it is going to be warm but not horrible. I am going to try to make a toning class at the gym tonight if we aren't going to have a baby. It's newish and I've been wanting to try it so I think I will.

I would do the color run in the rain! That would be fun.  I've thought of doing it but it's become too gimmicky.  

I had some early morning clients and am headed to parkour soon. These early mornings are a killer.

FSN, I have some friends that do the color run.  This past year, we had a massive rainstorm so things were extra messy.  

I'm doing strength training this morning and have one client.  I'll be doing more "work" on the writing stuff.  The site I'm using has a bunch of tests that boost your profile.  I did two yesterday so I'll do a few more today.  I also have a Skype meeting with someone from the site to "verify" my identity.
