Saturday Morning

I am headed out of here to the lake for an open water swim, followed by a bike ride.   My triathlon is in 2 weeks.  I am not at all as ready as I would have liked to be.  But every time I tell someone this, they just point out to me that I just ran a half-marathon, I must be in pretty good shape.  Well, I am - but sometimes running shape doesn't translate into swimming and biking shape.  

Later today I (and a friend) will take a short road trip to a nearby town to go to dinner and a speakers meeting at the rehab my daughter recently "graduated" from.  It is a pretty mountain town, the dinner is decent (prime rib for $6!) and a meeting is always good.   I am looking forward to this.  

My daughter went on a backpacking trip last night.  When she left the house, I felt like a kid whose parents just went out of town.  I really don't understand that.  This morning as I made my coffee, I stomped on the kitchen floor just for fun (hey, there is a song like that, isn't there?)  Maybe I have just lived alone for too long.  

I am thrilled that I have another AA birthday coming up on Thursday.  I love this time of the year.  

Have a nice sober saturday y'all.

I've considered triathlons,but I can't swim.Now I'm embarrassed to learn how to swim.I also worry about snakes in the water out to get me. Oh hell, I'll stick with running. You rock Well Rounded Girl.

If I get home even 30 minutes ahead of my husband...I just want to make lots of noise and dance. Jeeze I need more alone time.
Whoa..wait..YOU have an AA birthday coming up???

Hey girl, ya did not need to remind ME of your anniversary date--it's been on my calendar ever since we first "met"!

Triathlon in two weeks? I'm going to mow our yard today, and I'll be hurting for three days...but if I think of your Tri--I may not hurt as bad!

"Stompin' on the Kitchen Floor"--never heard it, but I could write a tune to that. Hey, there I go again, my two minutes have expired!
Luv ya,
Steve E.

I so love my alone time albeit few and far between. I am not sure if I have ever stomped on the floor with glee but it sure sounds like fun. Making mental note to do that the next time (hopefully this decade) that I get some alone time.

Just thinking of you stomping on the floor made me smile.
