The kids and Andy were home last Wednesday during our Nor'Easter, and then home half of Thursday. And then we had the weekend. And today is MLK day-so no work or school. Tomorrow we are expecting bad weather again. My daytime peace has been disrupted! (I'm so spoiled...)
The result is that I've been rather discombobulated. My attention is all over the place; I seem unable to accomplish anything of consequence. I DID get in my training this week despite the amount of time my lovely family was at home. I squeezed in runs during Jordan's two day swim meet. I watched Scooby Do re-runs with my kids while riding the trainer. I swam and did yoga before anyone was awake.
And today I got out of the house for a long walk in the woods with the pups. (I thank my wonderful husband for allowing me the respite! Not that I asked. I kinda just left.... :)
The woods were cold and still and lonely and the snow was deep. We lost the trail a few times, but that made it all the better.
I also spent a good chunk of the weekend at Jordan's swim meet in Milford. We arrived for warm up at 7 am on Saturday, and she didn't have her first event until 9:45, so I got in a nice, butt cold 10 mile run while I waited. Milford is an hour away by car from where we live, but knew the roads well since I ride there frequently. It was actually quite cool to run on roads that I have only ever ridden on.
Then it was back to the hot pool to watch Jordan swim!
She's getting more and more fun to watch. Here she competes in the 200 IM.
Here is a closer shot, just cause I know you are fascinated!
I am working on a post that involves a discussion of a book I just read called Sperm Wars: The Science of Sex. I tell you this only because I have been so boring lately in my writing, and I don't want you to give up on me just yet. I do have some somewhat unsavory and controversial things to say. They are just percolating right now-getting ready to be spewed forth... not to be too graphic or anything.
