After watching the Olympics, our DGDs, ages 11 and 13, asked us if we would take them skiing. Well, of course!
Since my DH broke his wrist ice skating a week ago our DS has agreed to take a day off work and go skiing with us so I have another adult on the slope. We are going to take them up for a day of lessons and then go up another day to ski.
I also thought about ice skating. Our local ice skating rink closes for the season on Sun 3/14 and has an ice cream and ice skating party that day. One of my friends has agreed to come with us and skate with the girls.
I feel really badly that DH will have to watch instead of participate but I know he will enjoy just being with the girls.
We will probably go up to the cabin at least one night during the visit.
I've been having a great weekend meeting up with old friends, exercising, shopping and planning for the DGD's visit next week. Today we're going to look at more carpet ... we need to replace all the carpet on our main level. Then I'm going to read and plan all day. If it gets nicer, I may take a bike ride. It was really nice yesterday so I should've done it then but I went on a 2 mile walk with DH cause he really hasn't done any physical activity since he broke his wrist last week. We really did enjoy the walk.
Well, that's it for today folks. Hope your weekend is great!
We couldn't go to the cabin again this weekend, because DH's MD said we had to stay nearby in case of post op complications after his wrist surgery. So I had another taste of what retirement will be like and I love it.
I went Spinning for 45 min at 6 am
after walking around the track for 20 min
and doing 10 min of strength training
Then DH and I had to visit periodontist
that took 2 hours.
I met a friend for lunch at a neat whole foods restaurant and had a fabulous meal.
Talked with another friend who was eating there!
DH and I went shopping. I had to take DH to the hardware store since he can't drive and I bought some new size 16 clothes.
After sparking for a while
I curled up in my recliner and started reading Stephen King's new book Under the Dome.
DH and I made supper together and now I'm Sparking again!
We didn't sleep well last night. The block wore off at 2 am anod so DH got uncomfortable. MD said take 1 to 2 tabs of the pain medicine every 4 to 6 hours, so we tried 1 tablet but it didn't help for long enough so we tried 2 tabs and that worked much better. That kept him comfortable for a good 6 hours. He has been dozing on and off in his recliner and is much more comfortable since last night. We ran out of ice in our freezer so I went out and bought a 10 pound bag of ice and put it in the freezer. He is pretty comfortable right now and is watching Discovery Channel on TV.
I went to a Kohl's sale and got some lingerie that fits!
I also bought a pair of running shoes and went out for 30 min for a walk/jog. I have never done this before so I walked for 4 minutes then jogged for 1 min. It worked pretty well. My heart rate stayed between 120 and 140 (my target zone) for 22 of the 34 min of my workout and I burned 500 calories. Another
