I got through the day, but I didn't do my weight training! I went swimming instead. And now my bestest pool buddy is back from Kentucky, so she and I can reconnect and correct each others' bad behavior and keep us both on the straight and narrow. Really, I need to get her walking better so we can do a traditional pub crawl in Ireland. And now we're talking February or March for Ireland, which knocks Alaska Man out of Bora Bora until next year. LOL Oopsie... guess you should have made your intentions more clear.
Be that as it may, Mr. Alaska Man has made it a point to e-mail me a good morning note and an afternoon update while at his new job... now that he is off worker's compensation. Says he would hide behind the big guy and just do his job and not be our in front, but he IS the biggest guy, the most outspoken, and the one who knows the job best. Oops. I told him that I gave my nephew Jonathan the same instructions while he is in Afghanistan and "the big guy" wrote me an e-mail and told me how unfair that was. I told him I was sorry and that I would send a large rock for him to hide behind so they all can be safe. It's gone waaay too far in this world, but everyone seems to find it hilarious!
But since Alaska Man is working new corporate construction (he's an electrician), he doesn't have to work as hard or as fast as he did at the gym for physical therapy. He says he doesn't wear a tool belt, but would wear one for me if I gave him plastic, toy hammers and such to fill it up with... just for me. Nothing but his tool belt and hard hat. At 6'5", that leaves a whole lotta naked man standing around! LOL
I am sorry, it's just the first time that he's calmed down enough to have a fun conversation and we came way off the trail today when we chatted. I was swimming and he was waiting around for work to start back up. It's been a fun day. I got to swim, walk my 4 miles, got my dogs out walking again, and my best pool buddy is in town so I am going to go spend a few days with her. Her hubby's 50th birthday is next weekend, so I have pitched in to help for the week. What fun that will be... considering her husband hated me until the past 8 months ago. Crazy days are ahead, I can assure you! LOL
While I hope to have a semi-normal week, I will roll with the punches like my old CB handle used to be...TUMBLEWEED.
Peace, Love, and Rolling with the hot air,
