Still got power Wednesday

Oh what a mess of ice/sleet/snow we got last night. Thankfully my town saw mostly sleet instead of freezing rain and we still have power. Once they get the roads salted and plowed it won't be so bad. 

I will have the grandson the next few days because my son-in-law is a line man and he has been called out because of the power outages. When he is gone then my daughter has no one else to watch the baby while she works. lol Having a baby around severely limits my activity so I am going to try to just piddle around the house and hope to get to the gym when my husband is home. 

Minestrone soup for dinner with rolls. 

What is everyone else up to today?

Yay!  I got on.  I was emailing with Karla the past few days because I was unable to log in but she was able to tell me how to fix it. 

Missed you guys!  The trip was wonderful and it would be fair to say I'm recovering.  No exercise today but I am working this afternoon.

Getting ready to head out to cross fit shortly. My legs are mega sore from the past two days, and it doesn't help that I am mostly confined to a desk today working on a large project. I am hoping that the work out will loosen them up some. I am tired, looking forward to an early bedtime tonight and hopefully no one waking me up throughout the night.

Well, I've got a training session this afternoon but I do have a writing gig I need to start on soon.  It's for a gentleman in Norway who has a website that documents different aspects of life in different countries.  I wrote a food piece for him a while ago and now I'm doing pieces on work life and traffic in the US.

Omgosh, I just witnessed the most hilarious meltdown I have ever seen. I was out trying to get into my car (horrid ice) when I heard my neighbor suddenly start screaming. He was absolutely furious. While he was out trying to get into his car, after shoveling inches of sleet, snow and ice, the plow came through and piled about 3 feet at the bottom of his drive. He took his shovel and went screaming down the street at the snow plow driver trying to get his attention. hahaha-he was screaming everything I ever wanted to say to them. 

The most ironic thing about the whole situation is that this man is a guidance counselor at the local high school. I can't imagine what all the high school students were thinking as they watched their counselor melt down in the middle of the street.

how funny Karla!  But I can totally imagine his frustration.

No rowing today, instead we did cardio on step boxes.  My legs are NOT happy with me.

Karla, I laughed out loud! The best part of city life is that it doesn't involve shoveling, raking, or mowing! I remember the defeated feeling when the plow came by...nope, don't miss it. I had one call tody with someone who was watching his grandson - I work with a lot of people in other states who I see infrequently, and in my mind, they are the same age as when I met them...so I am surprised when they have grandchildren. His was watching cartoons...I called him later for something else and said I wanted to watch cartoons and drink hot chocolate...and by then, the child was napping...which sounded even better.....I worked from home but the work day was one nightmare after another....but I did make chicken soup and go to the gym...foam rolling, 5 minutes on bike, lifting for legs, abs....Gymrat, glad your trip requires recovery! Aryl, sorry your workout requires recovery:). Have you tried foam rolling? It is like a deep massage you give yourself. It is painful during but good after. The class varies in size and if there are a lot of people, I keep my moaning to myself, but if it's a small group, we are all gasping at the sore spots and oohing at the release....it sounds slightly orgasmic....

LOL, we laughed about the moaning of self massage and foam rolling at parkour the other day. As I always say, it's pain but in a good way.
