Gray and cloudy here today, and I skipped the dog walk because the boys and I are exhausted today! We played hard this weekend... My MIL came to visit on Friday after having lost touch with her when my ex married someone no one liked! :) She's gone now after taking all the mortgage money, and I get my in-laws back! They missed me. Anyway, since the ex and I are good friends there's nothing but good in this. We had fun - drank red wine, caught up, shopped a little, went out to lunch, and laughed a lot. I feel like I had the first "normal" weekend in a long time!
Spent today washing bedding, cleaning up, and getting my meals planned for the coming week. I also took a power nap. :) Back to work tomorrow!

Drizzly here today, but warmish. Or at least not cold. Sunday School this morning, then stood around talking between services long enough that it was too late to go to church. Nothing planned this afternoon except studying for my final.
Overcast and cool. Slow start today. Doing a little housekeeping and then taking elder son to the Pittsburgh Symphony for Beethoven's Ninth. Heavenly!
Younger son went on a backpacking trip early yesterday, and I'm interested to hear how it went. He has no experience with that kind of activity, so I'm betting he's exhausted. Won't see him until dinnertime probably.
A little sore from the walking yesterday. Hate that. It's the number one reason I increase my fitness levels really gradually. I get no joy from discomfort!
Have a great Sunday!
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
Today is third day of diverticulitis giving me trouble. It hasn't helped me on the scale..but that is just a mention as the stress of diverticulitis is not worth any benefits on a scale. Husband is playing guitar and I'm enjoying it. Sunday weather is overcast but nice. A good day to be alive.
had the dogs out at the park this morning -- it was sunny, though a tad cool, at that time. Now it's cloudy but I will take them out again anyway, of course.
Had a smallish piece of steak for brekkers, and some shirataki ("Miracle") noodles with an egg and some cream cheese stirred in for lunch. May have some sardines in a bit; nothing seems to satisfy me today. I have the munches, I guess.
Not much else goin' on -- still looking online to see if new houses are being listed... ones that would work for us. Oh well, in time I suppose.
It is so nice outside! Finally. Even baseball tryouts are outside. Andrew better make the A team cause the B team will be way too slow of a game for him. They do not play an actual game in tryouts, which is annoying. So much of baseball is thinking and reacting quickly and you cannot tell that in drills. James is going to need sun cream today!
