Janet, I know what you mean. We have had a cooler summer than normal this year. Until this week, when all the kids went back to school. It has been high humidity and near 90 every day since Tuesday! No real change coming until Sunday. Phew.
DD's birthday today. We had birthday lunch at my parent's house. Mom and Dad cooked, I made ice cream cake and did all the clean up. It was good:)

I think team leaders are the only ones that can make a sticky topic.We definitely need a new one started. I like the name, Doris!
Running was tough this week - I felt like I was wearing a weighted armour.

I would start a new page for September...Stellar September running or something but I don't know how to make a sticky!
It was gorgeous here today, bright sunshine and light winds so it was comfortable to be outside. Got a few boat projects done in preparation for our big trip. Phew.

Hi!!! Looks like everyone is doing well...e xcept for Nera's pimple/boil. I get one regularly from panty line. I use triple antibiotic ointment on it.
I've been running- had a great half race on the 16th of Aug. Took almost a week off to recover and this current week was my first back full time. I've got another race the 27th but it won't be a true 'racing' race...
I've got 4 kids in college, (3 of those are away and one at the community college) and 2 at school (8th and 10th grade) and the rest are homeschooled or... not~depending on the age. It's busy here esp. since the community college boy is just 16 but doesn't have his license yet. It's only been 2 days of driving for me, but the boy needs to find rides and/or the bus. yes, the city bus runs clear out to the boonies for the college. !!!!
Okay, time to get back to life. I just wanted to check in here... ya'll are talking about weather. it's been a great summer til the past few weeks when humidity h it.

Hey nera,
Mine wasn't running related as much as heat, chaffing related.

We are in Spokane heading to silverwood tomorrow...having a good week :-).

Nera, I don't get the pimples.....have you talked to the Dr about it??
I am done dog watching and am back home at the boat. Phew. The dog is fine but I missed home. I did have trouble sleeping in a bed that did not move. Sheesh.

Happy September to all.

The pimple doesn't come from running I don't think. I have had it off and on for a year and I really haven't been running in that time.

I got a checking account but to get a savings account I have to go back. Not sure if I am going to or not. Trying to decide if I really need a savings account.

Neraus, I've never had that happen, but then I am so on again off again with running that it has never had a chance to happen.
BTW, did you ever get that account opened? I need to hit the credit union and open a checking account to go with my savings. sigh.

Trish, have fun with camp! Sounds like a good time.

Anyone doing anything fun this weekend? We are doing yard work..... Sons girlfriend is coming from spain and we don't want her to think we are total losers! lol

Hey all,
Just checking in from camp...

Nera, I get them occasionally , and just use body glide for a bit, and sometimes change my bra for a newer model. Usually goes away pretty quickly.

Gotta fly, campfire is going:-)

My last post seems to have gone away. Great sort of symbolic of my day since I spent 90 minutes trying to set up a checking/savings account at the bank and the end result was no accounts done. Sigh!!!

okay now my original post is back. Too tired to deal with this.

Yeah work has been tough lately. Having the one woman not come back from maternity leave really left us in a bit of a pickle.

I have a question for all you women. I have this recurring big pimple/boil on the under side of my right breast. Does anyone else get this? I did some reading on the internet last night and it is caused by heat build up. But one site said it was genetic also. Seems quite a few women get this but no one I know has it. Or will admit to having it. They said it seems to also be something that larger breasted women get but not exclusively.

Kim, I would think that if you have only been running for 3 months or so it is too soon to incorporate speed workouts but, hey, head for the hills!
Nera, I hope that your work place hires more help and then realizes how much work you have been doing and give you a raise:) If you're going wish, wish big:)

No run today, just 4 walks so far with the dog. About 3 miles total....

Hi Rooks!
Went and had a great workout at the gym and then had a good three mile run. It was raining when I started out and felt so very good.
Anyone have plans for the weekend?
Neraus, it sounds as though you have a frustrating work situation. Big time bummer.
CStream, my little dog afraid of water, but the pitt loves to swim with my son.

I have a question. I am building a good solid base of three miles. Been at this distance for about a month. When should I start incorporating hills and speed workouts into my runs? I want to do it now, but don't want to push myself right into an injury.

Hope you all have a great day! It is so very good to be back.
Kim

Blessings,
Kimiko

The only things swimming with me were the fish and other creatures that live in the ocean. The cat does NOT like to swim (she found this out the hard way) and the dog doesn't really like water. So, just me:)
Today was an interesting run day. I haven't done big hills in months yet today I did. It was good! I was pleasantly surprised.
Happy Friday all

Hi Rooks!
CuteNekko - this name makes me smile. One of our first critters after coming to the US was a siamese named Nekko. Gosh, she was a cranky thing, but I don't blame her. My bro would always pull her tail! Love your picture.
CStream, did any of the critters get in the water with you?
I went and had a good ST session at the gym and then took the dog for a walk. Getting ready for tax season and am in a bunch of classes to upgrade my status. Poor brain.....
Nera, hope you get that driveway straightened out soon.
Trish, is everyone healthy at your home now?
Have fun camping or whatever for the weekend everyone.
Kim

Blessings,
Kimiko

Hazy, hot and humid today/. The dog and I went to the boat for a visit. She did OK, just a little weirded out. I did jump into the chilly ocean several times. My cat and the dog were not happy about that! I managed to get in a 10 minute run this morning with the dog. Kept having to stop and smell the stinky things.
Nera, love the quilt in your profile pix. What part of the country do you live in? Good luck on the driveway.....

Happy hump day all

Getting a quote to fix our driveway. It was shot when we moved in 20 years ago. It didn't help when 8 years ago a tree was knocked down by a tornado and the tree company pulled a huge heavy truck in to our drive way to rip out the stump.

Otherwise weather is super nice. Wish I could take off more time from work but we are understaffed again.

I work with cotton fabric to make quilts. The picture in my profile is one I was hired to make this spring. I am making one now that will be used as a fund raiser for ALS. The idea is for every $5 you donate you get your name put in a drawing for the quilt.

Hey everyone!
We are starting to get ready for a camping trip over the long weekend. So far there will be no school for the kidlets after the weekend as our teachers and government are still at battle. Hope they can figure it out ASAP!!!

Today Joshy and I are going to Peachland for a walk along the lake - looking forward to getting out there for a while.

Hope you are all doing AMAZING!
Hugs,
Trish

Hi Team!

I'm enjoying reading how everyone is spending their summer holidays...got any big plans for the upcoming Labor Day weekend? emoticon

August has been very hot here..over 34 degrees C, so running has been out. The weather finally cooled off today (26!) so I went running. Only 2.08 kilometers, but it was a start. emoticon

Cheers to all runners gearing up for the marathon season. You can do it! emoticon

Nera, hope you find your inspiration...get quilting girl!!
Kimiko, I live on a sail boat and am dog sitting. You could have a dog on a boat but we have a cat. One animal on the boat is more than enough. I can barely keep up with the cat fur! Yes, cats can swim. She has fallen over board once and is much more cautious now.
No run today, went sailing with friends instead. My parents doggy sat for me:) It was glorious out there.
So, have I told you guys our plans for winter yet?

Good morning Rooks,
Another beautiful morning in PA. Feel so blessed to live in an area like this.
Trish, it is great you are feeling better. sounds like Monkey is too.
Neraus, what kind of textiles do you work with?
??? who lives on a boat and is dog sitting.... sounds like a fun life. Love the IDEA of living on a boat, but having never been on one can't imagine what it is really like. Why could you not have a dog on a boat?
Have no plans for the day. Getting ready to head off for worship services, then a long, long walk.
Kim


Blessings,
Kimiko

Hey all,
Today I managed a 75 minute walk while Monkey was at the energy plex. It was a cooler day, so made it much easier to get it done.

Funny Doris, it is opposite most of us...you need the waves, if I am on a boat for a while, all I can feel is waves:):)

I must say that it was kinda tough to fall asleep last night as the bed was not moving! I don't think I have slept in a house since Feb., just the boat that gently rocks. Tired today for sure. It will get easier. The dog is a fabulous beast! I would kidnap her if we did not live on a boat. She woke me this morning by licking my face........she was just letting me that the sun was up. Sheesh.
I made the biggest bowl I have ever made this afternoon in the pottery studio. I am hoping it ends up being gorgeous when its all finished.
Happy running rooks:)

Finally no real fever tonight - oh mannnn! Now I just have to get my tummy to settle down and start moving again:-)

Doris, we fly into Miami, and will be spending 3 days there - Friday evening is a Florida Panther's game...then off to Orlando where we are meeting Suezette and hitting Disney etc.

Great job Bobby! I was also glad to see you missed the lightening:):) emoticon

OK, Trish, get thee to the naughty mansion for a recovery hot tub:) So glad you are better.
DH and I have decided that we are going to take this job loss as a benefit and leave the chilly north for the winter. We plan to sail to Florida, hopefully all the way to Key West:) We leave in 4-6 weeks. Got lots to do before then!
No run today but one on tap for tomorrow.

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Yayyyyyy!!!! The fever broke:) Hope tomorrow is more normal, as my body has gone on next to nothing since Thursday. Thanks everyone for your thoughts - was a crazy time for sure, I am interested to see what my doc's take is on it. I'm also super glad we hadn't gone across the border yet as I do have out of country insurance, but the tests they did may or may not have been covered....

Have a great week everyone!

Hugs,
Trish

PS, I think I should go to the naughty mansion in order to effectively "recover"... emoticon

Hey everyone!
Not sure Osoyoos is the best place for my family, LOL:) After dealing with Monkey's symptoms on Thursday, Missy and I went out to have some gellato and also to get take-out for dinner. A friend suggested a restaurant, so we headed there...Missy had pizza, Josh and I shared pork chops/mashed potato/vegies, and I also bought an appy (pork masala). Missy's was fine, the pork was super dry, so Monkey and I only ate 1/2 of it. I opened the pork, and noticed that the masala had an odd smell...likely a different combo of spices. So I ate a couple of pieces dipped in the yoghurt dip. Didn't much like it, so wrapped up both of our meals and sealed the bag so we didn't need to smell the dishes.

After "dinner", we all chilled out for a bit, then I wanted to have a jacuzzi tub...it was a double one in our bathroom, so I filled it up with really warm water, and relaxed with the jets going, felt AMAZING! Stayed in for way too long, and when I hit our main room, I felt really cold. Got under the covers of the bed, and started violently shivering...kidlets covered me with every blanket in the place, and it just wouldn't stop. About 1/2 hour later, I ended up in the bathroom getting sick. I was shaking like a leaf, and asked Missy to call 911. Long story short, the ambulance came, my temperature was 39.8 when they first got there, and down to 39.6 when we left for the hospital. My buddy Wes came over and stayed with the kidlets.

The EMT's said that my temp was the highest they had seen in someone that wasn't unconscious. YIKES!!! Ended up having some cardiac issues showing up on the tests, with an enzyme a tad high, so they kept me over night. The next morning the triponen was even higher, so I had to be ambulanced down to Penticton for a CT, and a date with the cardiologist. The scan showed a few abnormalities, but wasn't bad, so I was released. Apparently all of the above went together to create the perfect storm.

Last night my temperature went up over 39 again, and also this morning, so I think there will be a visit with my GP on Monday...

We are at home now as once I was released my own bed was all I could think about...Monkey and I are so happy to be home! Missy is with my sister in Penticton, so I know she is having fun as well:)

I know, verbal diarhea, sorry guys!

Hugs,
Trish

Well I took a nap instead of exercising but later I did get on the treadmill. I had a nice 6 minute run and then a 4 minute run. Nice to be moving again.

Oh Trish, I hope you got a good night's rest dear. Wishing Monkey will get better soon.

Had a 6 mile run this morning. I came to the conclusion that I prefer evening running. It was one of those runs that nothing really synched together - AND I got a side-stitch that wouldn't go away. I haven't gotten one in over a year!

Posted a new blog. Plus reread some of my old ones. I copied and pasted one from 2008 since I thought it was funny and timely.

Trish sorry to hear about your son. Take good care of him those concussions are not to be taken lightly.

In a side note that means nothing what might your favorite color be or your daughter's or your son's?

Hey everyone!
I am so glad that I didn't go to the rink today, monkey's symptoms came back full force - vomitting, dizziness, his gash looks a lot worse, so it was off to Penticton to get checked out.

Heading to bed as this is 2 nights no sleep.

I'll check back better tomorrow!!

Hugs,
Trish

Oh no! Poor Joshie. Give him ice cream from me. Sheesh, kids.
A good 3 miler this morning and then, two 1.5 mile walks with my niece. We were going to go kayaking but my DH got caught in a standing wave that flipped him over and took the kayak away. DH is fine, a little beat up from the dock and barnacles but otherwise OK. THank Goodness! Kayaks can be replaced, people cannot. So, he napped and we went with plan B.....walking:)
Yay Monty for good news:)

Man Trish your poor son. This is what makes life interesting. But I am guessing you would like life to be less interesting for a little bit. Big Hugs!!!!
