Lighthearted Moments

Somehow, not exactly sure how but I have managed 5 whole days in a row OFF! What a luxury! 5 whole days and time to actually rest, relax and rejuvinate. Oh wait. . . .there were those moments of extreme stress when I realized my puppy had seriously evicerated my sunglasses. I carried the managled parts into the optometrist and said "please, I need new ones". Damn dog. . . .

I've spent part of my free time training for the Army 10 miler to be held on Oct 5th. I'll be running with one of my former amputee patients. This will make my 4th year in a row running with a former patient. I want everyone to realize there is no way in hell I would do this on my own. Nah uh, no way jose, forget about it! But. . . . . the guys ask and I can never say "no" so once June comes around I put my 40 something body back into training mode. . . .ugh! Maybe next year I won't have to run. . . . .

Other spare moments have been occupied with planning my vacation. Acquiring airline reservations, car rentals and lodging has me anxiously awaiting the day I can vamoose! Anyone in Boston or Maine? Want to meet up? ;-)

Ok, the puppy has gotten far too quiet so I need to go investigate. I still have one more day left before returning to work. . . . I think I'll head to the beach. . . unless the puppy has now consumed my car keys!

Hey blog buddy Keith! Answer your email. I gotta know if you're going to the box again. See what extreme measures I take to "talk" to you??? I mean, I gotta plan, care packages take time! :-D

Boy, do I like fearless women, glad to hear that joy in your voice, and running ten miles at forty isn't as bad as when you will be trying it at sixty, sis. Go get them! I did twenty kilometers in March - very slowly but all mine. Gotta love being old and trying.

I had a puppy that ate 2 pairs of reading glasses and 3 pairs of sunglasses. Then there was 2 puzzle books, 6 rolls of toliet paper through the house at various times, and of course all the other small usuall items found around the house that puppies are famous for chewing up.
The breeder said that the puppy behavior would end around 6 months. THEY LIED!! After we celebrated it 2 year birthday we began to see the light at the end of the chewed-up lane - tunnel - path. Oh, what the hell -- pick one because you will celebrate it when it comes too.
Wish you luck on making it through this stage of growth.

The only thing wrong with having 5 days in a row off is the 6th day. Days 3 and 4 are the ones where I finally relax enough to enjoy the free time.
