Always Busy...

Lately it seems like we are constantly on the go. I know I say that all the time, but today was horrible! I took the boys to CC practice, then headed to Cleveland for a check-up, picked them up at the library, came home, fed and showered them, took J to his moms, came home, spent 30 mins reading email and then headed to the 4-H judging for small animals. Sat there for 4 hours to get home at 7:30. Dinner, riding and bed...that is my day!

Tomorrow should be better, only practice to run too! Hopefully I will get a walk in while they are running.

At my check-up today I did get an all clear from my cardiologist. He is very happy with the way things look and sound. Everything looks great and he told me to keep up my walking. Don't need to tell me, I feel so much better on the days I walk. I just wish it didn't take me so long and that we didn't have to walk on the railroad tracks. I want to increase to 8 miles one day a week but its a time thing with the neighbor and I. That is about 2 hours and usually one of us doesn't have that much time!

The weather has been beautiful lately so I have been doing quite a bit of reading outside. I really want to get some sewing done tomorrow, but I always say that and it just never happens! But I do have 2 of my PIF's ready to mail out! I hope that the recipients like them!

We did play a tournament game on Saturday, and our poor pathetic team won! I can't believe it, ther is a team out there worse than ours! So we play this Saturday at noon. I am not sure if we will win this one, the other team is pretty good. Rich and I scouted them on Sunday (ok, he scouted and I read!)

We also had our 4-H horse show. Was horrible...don't ask...

And just two pictures of my kitties. Whenever I am outside reading they spend about 20 minutes on the swing with me and then jump to the shade. I don't blame them, that fur has to be hot!! Especially Kylie!

Great news on your clean bill of health.

Congrats on getting two of your PIFs done! I still have two to go but they're next on my list after this Project Linus quilt! My kitty sits on the swing with me too! :0)

You are very busy - I remember those days with kids to run around on top of everything else. Great work with your walking. We walk on a trail which means driving to the trail so that adds time to the daily regime and means that I won't be able to keep up when I go back to work and the days get shorter. I have been listening to audio books while I walk too.

Glad you got a clean bill of health!
I wish we had sidewalks by us so I could walk without having to go into Seville!

Dionne said...

Oh, you are always so busy! It amazes me how much you get done. I'm so glad you are healthy. Don't forget to slow down and enjoy yourself.
Cheers,

Congrats on getting your PIF's ready to go out. It is always great checking something off of the "to do" list, and your list of things to do and places to go is a long one!
