23 days to go

Headline news first. The Smalls seems fine. No more coughing/honking. So. Whew.

I woke up at 5:20 and probably could have gone back to sleep but decided to get up and get the gym over with. I did. It's good to just get up and go before I can come up with the list of reasons why I don't have to do it at all. My feet, calves, and hips were all fine. I even did a little elevation today. Gettin' frisky.

I may well go back later today when my shoes come in. I ordered 5 pair. If any pair is boarder line, I may just take it over there and try it out on the treadmill. I can still return them if they don't the treadmill test.

Besides waiting on shoe arrival, I'm hoping that the cats will let me work on the quilt.

I have a couple of grocery items I'd like but nothing I can't live without so it might just be that I go nowhere today. Wednesday is house cleaner day so also errand day.

The Smalls got to the cat tree basket first this morning so Biggie is just following me everywhere and then just watching closely.


Time now for me to get into the shower. Somehow I think he might not follow me there.

This feels personal

badrobot68 shared a tweet with me this morning that was these four pictures.

It's the swimming pool of an LA Fitness that is in the north part of Seattle. A car crashed through the window into the pool WHILE PEOPLE WERE SWIMMING! Seriously, the idea freaks me out totally. Plus, just last year a motorhome crashed into the pool at my former gym one morning.

What is it with vehicular swimming around here????

My LA Fitness pool is situated in a manner that would make it very difficult for a car to crash into the pool. It could happen but it would not be simple. And, of course, I wouldn't be in it because it's closed. Also this happened at 8 am and I wouldn't be in it then anyway but still... this just freaks me out a little.

My shoes have arrived. They got here at 9 am which is amazing. Not so amazing is that neither Amazon nor Zappos let me know they had been delivered. Not handy.

None were keepers and so now they are all labeled and waiting for the UPS (who still handles their returns) driver who will be here shortly. Efficient.

One of the pairs will work BUT I can't handle black. So I ordered it in the only other color - beige. Another pair I liked a lot and then found on Amazon for $20 less. So I got them, too. I've got the Keens so I'm good for now. And the Goodwill hamper just got some shoes.

I got the quilt all pieced together and the binding all decided - which fabric (an old sheet - turquoise) and how big (3"). I'm so jazzed. I'm going to eat lunch because I'm starving and then I'll start cutting out the binding.
