I didn’t sleep well last night. We had our bedroom windows open to let fresh air circulate. It was wonderful until I fell asleep. Our curtains were blowing over me and I felt like a ghost was touching me! Needless to say, I did not get up and go for a run this morning.
I did put another quilt on the longarm and did some studying on m-audio fast track pro at guitar center. I have two more quilts to finish before Memorial Day but I also needed to get that information. Why are there so many things that require my time!
I did get my run in this afternoon. My daughter and I went to the reservoir and ran the trails. I have a new ap on my phone put out by the From the Couch to a 5K people . It was fun and at the end I felt like I really got a work out.
We had a great time this weekend and helped raise funds for a good cause.
My daughter and I enjoy walking and look for 5k’s that support Relay for Life and other causes. We happened upon information about the Mutt Strutt being held in Indianapolis. It is always nice to get away from the computer, although I do enjoy writing about great websites like GotBriefcases.com. This walk was especially exciting because we got to take our dogs. On top of that, we got to walk around the track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. That is where the Indy 500 is held! We walked across the bricks that the winners of the race revere. Our dogs did great. They didn’t act like the 5000 other dogs bothered them a bit. We all got exercise and had fun seeing everyone. It was a fun day. I hope we do it again next year.
Here is Brody after the walk.
Yes, for the first time ever, I walked in a 5K. For those of you who, like me, need that converted into miles, I walked over 3 miles.
I have been walking a fast 4 mile walk three or four times a week since the first of April. I want to get into shape. When the gym, where my daughter works, asked her to participate in the 5K walk/run she said yes. The money raised from the walk benefited the Wounded Warriors program. My daughter asked me to walk the 5K with her and I said sure! Yikes! What was I thinking? This walk was on the fourth of July in 85 degree temperatures. They weren’t even giving away any trophies to walkers only runners received them. That’s okay. I was just happy to not be the last person to cross the finish line.
Anyway, I did it! Here is a picture of my daughter and me crossing the finish line.
I prolonged getting my hair colored so that it looks decent for my son’s graduation from law school. I know, I know, there are more important things in life I should be worried about. Should I consider myotest reviews, decide who to vote for in the primary or care whether my hair looks good?
I am regretting the wait. My head looks like I have a skunk stripe going down the middle of my scalp.
It has been unseasonably warm here in the mid-west. We usually have 40 degree weather with chances of snow here and there. We have been having 70 degree weather. Our trees have budded out and our daffodils and tulips have begun to bloom. What will happen when it frosts? For now, I am enjoying the energy the sun gives me. I have been pulling weeds and picking up sticks. My dog loves taking a nap in the sunshine.
Feel free to skip reading this post because it is a whining one. I have been having headaches. The farmers in our area are harvesting corn and soy beans and that means there is a lot of stuff floating in the air. I get headaches this time of year and I cannot get rid of them!
With headaches comes sleep issues. I took a sleep aid Sunday night and still couldn’t get to sleep and I had the weirdest dream! I dreamt about two elderly women who came to me because they needed medical air evacuation! What?? They had long, gray, stringy hair and they were concerned because it was falling out. I have no idea what brought these thoughts to my dreams.
I had the t-shirt quilt finished and put a label on the back so my friend would always know who put it together for her. I just needed to get together with her and give her the quilt! Easier said than done. We both work full time and our evenings are full of have to do stuff. On the spur of the moment, I called her last night and she said to come over. She gave me the reaction I hoped for. She really liked it.
Hubby and I have been going over to his mom’s house every 3-4 hours. She has been so sick. We ended up taking her to the ER last Thursday night. They hooked up one of those industrial pumps, at least it looked like one! and got her hydrated. After being so sick, it seemed as though she became dehydrated. We can’t have that so, hubby and I go over to make sure she is eating and drinking. She had an ultra sound on Monday and it showed nothing wrong. In fact, she is a very healthy 85 year old. After another test on Thursday, I hope they figure out what is causing her to vomit all the time. She is getting tired of not feeling well. She is a busy gal and does not like being confined to bed. Prayers are welcomed.
Our little friend, Maddie, always says “stitches” instead of “itches”. Well, this stitches. Last weekend’s fishing trip turned into a nightmare of biting gnats. I have been going from website to website using the click here philosophy to figure out what the heck has invaded southern Indiana. What I discovered is that gnats have over populated due to flooding the past couple of years. They have been killing deer and birds and making other animals miserable. They made hubby and I so miserable that we came home a day early from our fishing trip. We wore netting but wherever we had a seam, the gnats found a way in to attack our skin. Bug spray offered no relief.
When we got our dogs, we thought about getting dog insurance but didn’t really know much about it. Time slipped by and we never acted on our instincts. Had we know how cheap pet insurance could be, we would not have hesitated. We would have saved so much money in the long run.
Our poor little Brody came to us with kidney problems. I didn’t know you could cover a pet who already had an illness. It pays to check things out! You can get pet insurance for dogs and cats for a limited period of time following illness or injury. This coverage won’t put you in the poor house the way vet bills can. Check it out. You will be surprised how affordable pet insurance is.
