WooHoo! Yesterday I did 10 minutes on my gazelle - just couldn't get enough sleep yesterday so I decided to do the minimum but I pushed myself a little hard and worked up a good sweat in those 10 minutes. This evening I took Mia for a 16 minute walk. I had to bundle up a bit because it was only about 35 degrees. We had 2-3 inches of wet snow in our yard this morning when I got up to take the kids to school. At least most of the snow is already gone but it sure doesn't feel like May 2nd.
Today I spent about 3 hours with my mom and little sister at a funeral for my little sis's best friends' Mom. She's had cancer that was diagnosed sometime within this past year or so and elected not to undergo treatments (she just turned 84 last month). I've known Joann since I was in middle school and I knew her youngest 3 children pretty well though none were in my class at school. One of my old High School teachers was there as well as the moms of two of my classmates so it was fun to catch up a bit.
On a happier note, my MIL seems to be bouncing back pretty good. She even went to Bingo for a little while on Monday evening - her first day in the Nursing Home! I guess she's eating and drinking pretty good, is going to her Physical Therapy classes and wants to get back to her Assisted Living room! Very happy about that!!
