Rainy Afternoon Ramblings



Random ramblings on a rainy Tuesday afternoon:

*Training for my upcoming race is going well...however, it is frustrating to see the numbers going UP on the weight scale, instead of down. Is this because muscle is heavier than fat? That is what I console myself with, anyway...and occasional bursitis in the hip can be a bitch....

*Hug your families close...a girlfriend of mine lost her mother recently, and I spent this morning at the funeral...and I can't even imagine what the parents of the Ohio schoolchildren are going through....

*I still love Chai Tea brewed in my Keurig...

*Was anyone else as bored with the Academy Awards as I was? Billy Crystal...meh. The fashion...meh. Everything was predictable. Yawn.

*My current book on my Kindle is "The Litigators" by John Grisham...slow-moving, tedious sometimes, and yet I am still plowing my way through it...I'm up to Chapter 19, and I keep hoping it will take off down an exciting path - but no luck yet.

*Thunderstorms in February are a rare treat here in the midwest...

*Daughter is recovering well from her horrific gym accident a few weeks back...a trip to the orthodontist is in store tomorrow, and we may be done - for awhile - with doctor visits. My checkbook will celebrate, as these office visit co-pays are adding up....

*Speaking of doctor visits, I got an "all-clear" at the skin cancer center...the first time I have received this in two years. I fist-pumped in the office, much to the doctor's delight....

*My oldest son will be home this weekend for his college spring break, and it will be good to see him...if only briefly....

What are your ramblings on a rainy Tuesday afternoon?

Peace.

My babies are coming home today, too! And hug them close...we never know what lies ahead. Prayers to everyone in the tragedies this week.
