Wow, what a contrast to yesterday's weather. My allergies are in full force my eyes itching terribly, my nose stuffed up, and uncontrollable sneezing. Work today, yoga, a nice relaxing evening tonight all alone with my dogs. I can hardly wait for the evening. What is everyone else up to?

lol We must live near each other. It's dreary here too. I have 4 men crawling around under my house right now and there is so much noise here that I can't think straight. We are having the new HVAC system installed. I hope this doesn't take all day. 

My sister is graduating with her Masters Degree tonight so I'll be leaving for her graduation ceremony later. I'm expecting it to take all evening so I doubt I'll get any kind of exercise at all done. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

It's been a quiet but productive morning at home.  Cleaning, doing laundry, making the bed... and it's all staying clean which provides me an amount of joy that I cannot express.  It's nice having the time to myself.  

I'm doing strength training this morning and then possibly a Costco run.  I've got a massage scheduled this afternoon and am planning on a quiet night in tonight.  

I woke up with a nasty sinus headache so as a result of two lattes and excedrin migraine, I'm feeling a bit jittery but the headache is finally starting to subside.  I've been on the new meds not even a day yet but I think they're helping?  

I have nothing exciting planned for the weekend - my best friend is coming over tomorrow and we're going out to a fancypants lunch and then hanging out at my house for a girls' afternoon/evening.

I'm ready for my nap!  I've had this bad spell of not sleeping the past few nights. The bad part is that I take a nap and then I think that messes up my sleep so it's a bad cycle. I was going to go to parkour this AM and then silks at night but my leg is so bruised from last week and I'm so tired that I decided to skip parkour. I'm thinking maybe I need to give it up. When you hurt yourself on something called an "easy" vault, that should be a sign. I had some early morning clients so on top of everything else, I'm mentally groggy.

It was sunny here today, but cold. I hate that I am running my heat in May....Gymrat, when you live alone and the house is a mess, you have to look in the mirror to find the messy person...I like the house to look nice, but I still manage to mess it up...Karla, the other people arrested are college kids from the same school and the same area of the world - although they appear to not actually go to class. In all the discussion about immigration, I don't know why the question of who is and isn't in the US couldn't be addressed be a good computer system. You have to show your passport to come and go, would it be so hard to match stuff up? And then at leat look for the people who didn't leave? And here's another question - why, if these people hate Americans so much that they blow up an 8 year old boy, do they violate their visas and stay here? Go home...or somewhere you don't hate. The big controversy now is what to do with the body of the bomber who was killed either by the police shooting or his own brother running over him. They can't find an airline to fly it to Czetnia...or a cemetery here with a Muslim section to bury him in. No wond we dumped Osama in the ocean....and to everyone struggling with the 'parent as child' issues - very hard to do. I think you have to try to separate that they are your parent and just make the best decisions you can. No answer is right or wrong, it's just the best you can do. Jean, I couldn't do an easy vault when I was 15....but you were talking about the money part of fitness earlier in the week..maybe silks is where you want to put your it hard on your ankle? Karla, I responded to your pm...I can't get to where they are most of the time, so hopefully, the answer will get to you. My weight is going up and up, which is annoying because I stayed the same in Poland...too many bad choices...but I did go to the gym this morning -10 minutes bike warmup, lifting or legs, abs. I am planning on Zumba tomorrow, and maybe something else after...have a great weekend everyone.
