I was just going to say what Mandy said. Don't delay, be proactive, talk to your homeowner's insurance, do what you can, and
awesome. Hey, I have sibs (and maybe parents but I didn't invite them yet) coming this Saturday afternoon/evening for a bonfire. Wanna come? Consider yourself invited, and PM me if you're up for it.
My bro and I both have bdays coming, and my sibs are some of the nicest people I know.
Dropped dh at O'Hare this afternoon. OMG the tollway SUCKS. Hello, I am paying money for the opportunity to drive through 40 miles of SUCK--I mean construction. Luckily I drove with a friend who is at home on the road. I hope he has a safe and relatively uneventful trip, and that he gets his fill of family time and can then go another 2 years...so we can all make the trip next time (and not like last time). He went with very full bags and very full pockets. He will surely come home empty. While he's gone, I expect to get the carpet installed, and when he's back, we'll be moving into our new bedrooms upstairs.
RR: I survived a week of reduced running and then pretty much a week of no running, and now that dh is gone, I need to get back on the wagon and run. I didn't gain any weight over the time not running (which is excellent), but I didn't lose any more either (which is no surprise). So, I want to shoot for 20 miles a week for the next two weeks and just see how that goes. The hip is still far from 100%, but with care and continued stretching and strengthening, I think I can I think I can...
We culled sheep here last weekend. I cried. In fact, I think I may have some cry left in me. It's hard, mamas. I really, really love them.
Oh--reminds me. Please forgive my thoughtlessness when I post here. I do a lot more reading than I do posting, and I just want to pop in and let you know I am thinking of you all, a lot...I just don't get to post much. So when you feel zapped by a positive thought here and there, yeah, maybe that was me.
I have recently absorbed some major inspiration on my writing WIP, and I plan on dedicating my every spare moment to it in the coming days/weeks/months. Also, Ramadan begins Sept 1 this year, and I want to somehow make forward motion a part of the fasting month. It will be a challenge, but even just walking 2 miles at night on the TM would be a benefit. We'll see. Lots to work on. Going to try.
