happy friday! yesterday i went back to work after 5 days off.
it was about what you'd expect. quieter because of the holiday but still silly busy these days. Plus i've needed to get ready for this weekends half marathon race. this is the race where we've been the coaching group contracted by the race. lots of marketing stuff that im pulling together for that but fortunately i don't have to do any running.
Yesterday i went water running in the lake with the running partner.
it was really peaceful and fun. sadly she is not running right now but this is a great alternative right now. I joined the group run last night for some faster quarters. it was hot at 80 degrees so this was good for relay training. that is in a week.
the visiting friends left yesterday.
it was a really fun visit and we did a lot of different things. they also helped picked raspberries every day out of our raspberry patch. i am missing the free labor.
i had planned on running a few miles this morning but opted to come into work early to work on some of those marketing things and try and catch up with everything else. i will probably be going to the skilled nursing facility after work where Dh's dad is now. he's doing not so great. can't really express to staff that he needs help with bodily functions or pain and when he does call, they take a very long time anyway.
he's not eating saying the food tastes terrible but we really think it's medications making things taste off. dh and his mom had a meeting with the care team about all these issues. i hope it gets better.
bonus: i like 8. it's in my birthday, dh's birthday, our house numbers, my ssn etc. 8! next year on 8/18/18, i turn 50.
