My legs are feeling great, inspite of how awful my left leg felt after yesterday's run. I forgot ibuprofen, and I think that just made the difference. Lame, I know--I only take the stuff before and after the LR, though. Hm. It was a good run, in spite of the heaviness of our hearts and the weirdness of cReb's mom. And she has been...odd. And her timing is also crap. I am really hoping, though that a simple med increase will clear up the seizure issues, because my friend is very tired. Frankly, I think she and her dh should explore the possibility of separate bedrooms once in a while, and arrange things so she can sleep through the night and he can get up every time with the baby for a while. Her brain is working overtime all day with the seizures, and maybe some good quality sleep could help things. I don't know...I know my own dh would have problems with that one--but if I had diagnosed epilepsy, maybe he'd at least try once in a while, especially if I was experiencing such seizures. *sigh* Anyway...
I think I am going to do a couple miles, probably walking, this PM, just to keep working these legs without wearing them out. I keep saying I am going to do the damn pilates video, but then I don't. I need to bring the ball back into the living room. I am right now very nervous about 26.2. Yes, I am.
We are of course missing dh. But I have been handling things so much better than last time. Of course, I had to quit the awful job to be in this place right now. It's good. I actually think it might be even easier on me (emotionally) if I had a job and the kids in care outside the home. As weird as that sounds. You know, it's the All Mom, All The Time show, and I think it gets old for all three of us. Not complaining...just thinking about how it would be different. I am really crossing my fingers about the interview. I kind of took a risk with my thank-you letters after the interview, so it could elicit either a strong positive response or a strong negative one. We'll see. And if unemployment is the alternative to this job, that's OK, too. If I don't get it, then it's down to City Hall to get the kids signed up for swimming lessons and park and rec programs.
There's so much going on in all your lives...we are a hard bunch to keep up with.
kerc, what is up with this weather? It seems to be coming from your direction...very windy and wet. Good treadmill weather.
katherine, I hope it's helpful that your dh will have someone helping him sort the crap and work on things...my dh was most definitely depressed when he was an awful dh a couple years back. I am still angry and feel betrayed in ways, and he knows it...at this point, I'm kind of mad at the Old dh...it's not so simple. But of course you have a right. And anger is kind of like the "flag down." Football analogy. When it's there, it means something happened.
I'm checking out E2L. Will it tell me to tone down the dairy? If it does, then what? Because I won't!
is all I can say. I still cry over pets lost decades ago. I grieve them as deeply as any human friend or family. What a luck dog to have you.
moonshine, sprichst Du Deutsch? German is how dh and I ended up married!
It's true! How else does a WI dairy farmer marry a Berber shepherd?
loftmama, I want to see your haircut. The best moment of the day for my new 'do is right when I get up--so today, I haven't combed it or anything!
