Good news on the research front.... I stayed up too late getting it done and reporting it to my professor, but this morning I had an email from him saying I had done a great job (!!) and telling me where to go next with it. Maybe I'm finally learning what he wants!!

Laurie - this is my first real week back at swimming, so we can rock it at the pool together. :D I actually listened to lecture last night - shocking! It was the first one where it wasn't entirely material that I already knew LOL. It was still gruelling, though. We have decided to go to our favorite Italian restaurant on Monday night, but we haven't decided what we're doing after - maybe a movie or something? LOL I'm sorry to hear that clinic is so aggravating. :( Same with work. Not. Cool. Woo hoo on the news front! And I'm so so sorry about that cat. :( I would be absolutely devestated. There's nothing you could've done - it's a shame he was out. :(

Heather I seem to remember something about a car accident? Is that what you're talking about with your payroll person? Glad she's okay, they are scary!

Kelly, glad to see you are getting lots of work done. Sorry you have to be so crazy busy though. I don't know what it is about hotels, I don't sleep well in them either, no matter how comfy they are. Maybe it's just "not home." I have decided to look for another job, although I'm not in a huge hurry. I'm hoping to find something by the end of the year.

Shoop and everyone else who is getting back to the pool... wait for me! I really need to go too. And I found out that the university pool is set up short course now for the rest of the school year, so I think I'm going to start going again next week, twice a week. I need to get back to training for the triathlon

Diane, sweet for your mom to have a dog to keep her company. I don't know what I'd do without mine. There was a short period of time when I was living in an apartment and couldn't have pets and it was LONELY! I will never be without a pet of some sort ever again.

Kourtney you're complaining about stamina? LOL..... you do more in a day than I do in a week! LOL You should definitely do a date night for your anniversary. I can think of lots of ways to celebrate an anniversary that don't have to be sentimental at all! I'm sorry about your friend.... I hope you can patch things up.

I've been crazy busy too. Class is class... nothing new there. Kourtney you sound like me, doing things you shouldn't be doing in class instead of listening to the lecture LOL... for me it's chatting (shhh....you didn't hear me say that) The reading is much easier this semester and it's pretty easy to understand the concepts. The clinic is proving to be a challenge. He keeps throwing clients at me and when I ask him for guidance I don't get much. It's like he's throwing me to the wolves and letting me figure it out for myself. Problem is, I pass things by him before I take them to the client, and half the time, I'm dead wrong. It is a bit of a time suck. There's nothing like spending an hour or two on research only to find out you've been researching the wrong thing. It's a bit frustrating.

Work is.... work. The new person started Monday, she's doing okay. Someone got fired last Friday for spending too much time on Facebook and on her personal cell phone. My complaints have fallen on totally deaf ears, and although I don't think they're going to fire me, I am watching for red flags and planning to start sending out resumes.

Running is going pretty well, and as I said before, I intend to get back to the pool twice a week starting next week.

On the bad news front, last week on my way to work I hit and killed a cat. It was awful. I cried all morning. It ran out in front of me so fast I couldn't do anything. I couldn't even stop because there was too much traffic, moving too fast. Then after I was done crying I spent the next day and a half being pissed off at asshole people who insist on letting their cats outside on busy streets because it "isn't fair" to keep them locked in the house. &%@#)&% I cannot TELL you how angry that makes me. It does make me want to love up my animals all the more.

Anyway.... I have some research to do tonight for abovementioned clinic, and hopefully I won't waste my time. Later all!!!

Heather - Glad to hear the payroll girl is alright. :D I need some of that pool enthusiasm! :P Hope you have a great ride!

Shirley - have fun at swimming!

Kelly - I was just thinking about you last night while I was swimming. I thought "Oh man, I bet Kelly has been crazy busy, poor thing." Looks like I was right! I hope your work calms down a bit and I feel ya about cable. I still keep up with all of my favorite shows, and I kinda miss some of my ridiculous marathons, but it's just too much money and I don't need the pull of reality tv lol. I am back up to normal intense exercise, and I've been adding in ST for a few weeks now. :D This week has been going well workout wise and eating wise. I'm planning to keep on it.

Diane - I hope your surgery goes well. Good luck in the pool today. I'm sorry to hear that your mom is having a rough time. I hope that the new boxer can help cheer her up. *hugs*

***

Oh hai there! How are you?

I'm doing alright. I went swimming last night, which I'm super proud of. I really need to keep going b/c my stamina right now is kinda sh1t LOL. Afterward, I bowled with the boys and BOTH of my games were over 120 (129 and 133 - that's really really REALLY good for me) so I was pleased. :D I did make us go home early b/c I wanted to get some sleep, though. I'm such a spoil sport :P. I got up this morning and did upper body ST and I have turbokick at lunch tonight. Then class this evening and hopefully getting some veg time with the Boy. No, I demand veg time with the Boy. *stomps* On Monday we have our 5 year anniversary. We don't really celebrate them ever (neither of us are sentimental) so I'm not sure if we'll do anything. Maybe we'll have a date night or something :D.

I'm finishing up my final draft of my essays I think. I caught an important error yesterday and am making some corrections today. I'm hoping to finally submit this application tomorrow. :D

My friend and I are still not talking which is disconcerting. I'm going to try to remedy things with her this afternoon on my 3:00 break. Blargh. I despise drama and it's really messing with my mood.

XOXO

Kourtney

Totally understand about getting sucked into Sister Wives!

Plan for the day, a couple of hours of intense work in the pool, which includes some swimming, but more physical therapy than anything. Getting strong as I can be for my up coming knee replacement surgery

Also get to meet my mother's new boxer today, a rescue my brother got for her to help ease her loneliness and have some unconditional love. She lives with my brother, has the downstairs, but keeps to herself. She has surprised herself how much she misses my father, and as she goes down that slippery slope of cognitive decline, it is only get more so, as she remembers times from long long ago.

Treasure your mind and your memories...

Good morning!

I'm sorry I've been MIA lately, but it has been crazy! My boss is out for Rosh Hashanah today so I"m taking the opportunity to try to catch up on some of this work, but also to catch up a bit with all of you! We have just been so busy at work. Every day I come in with a plan about what I'm going to tackle, and every day a client calls us with an emergency or my boss tells me that he needs something else ASAP and all of my good plans go up in smoke. I'm trying really hard not to tick people off by ignoring their work for weeks at a time. Thank goodness our new associate starts on Monday!

I was also in Baltimore this past Sunday, Monday and Tuesday for an American Health Lawyers Fraud and Abuse Forum - which I think is probably only interesting for health lawyers and compliance officers - and even then sometimes not so much. It's amazing how sitting in 8 hours of seminars can completely wear you out. I didn't sleep that great either, despite the super comfy Marriott bed. I blame cable! Jason and I haven't had cable for a few years and I got totally sucked into Long Island Medium and Sister Wives. :)

Anyway, how are all of you?

Laurie, last time I checked in, you were really having some job frustration. How is it going? have you made any decisions about leaving?

Kourtney, have you worked your way back to your normal intense levels of working out yet, or are you still taking it easy and healing?

Heather, have fun riding today! Send a little sunshine our way - we're getting the heavy rain and mugginess today.

Shoop, have fun swimming tonight!

I'm also going to restart my challenge because my exercise motivation got consumed by the black hole of work stress over the last couple of weeks. I'll try to blog about that a little later.

Have a great day!
Kelly

Good Morning!! I think that might actually be sun I can see trying to break through the clouds!! Maybe we'll see a little today, haven't seen much of that recently.

Busy as usual!! It's the way I like it. Today I'll work, then I have dentist appt at noon, then either home to work and then ride later, or vice versa. Depends on how I feel about it. It's very nice to have that kind of freedom.

Kourtney, to answer your question, my payroll woman is fine. Shaken up and bruised, but nothing broken or seriously injured. She's coming back to work today, so that's good news.

I can't wait to get back to the pool tomorrow morning! I'm keeping myself to two times a week so I can keep it fresh and also make sure I don't injure my shoulder again. I'm working on ST and stretching to be as sure as I can be that I don't hurt it.

I hope you have a FUN and ACTIVE day!!!!
