A Week of Ups and Downs

Today for the 44 I did a move that is always tough for me – the W (you know, your arms and head make a W.

This move wasn’t too bad for the first 28 or 30 but the last 15-16 were rough!!!  (and I only used 5 pound dumbbells!!)

I decided to do a fairly simple workout to see how it felt so I did Burn & Firm Pilates.  This was  a nice way to get some movement and strength training without pulling on my legs a lot.

The weather has been awful – besides the extreme cold, the snow on the ground (especially the roads) is not my favorite!

Even without a huge grocery shopping trip this weekend, I have gotten back on track with cooking dinner again!!!

The heater for 2 of our apartment units (above our venue) went out on Monday night – the motor blew – coldest night of the year!!!  And then the pipes froze – so no heat or water!

We got the motor replaced (for the heater) Tuesday before lunch time (I still haven’t seen the bill!!).

I ended up having 10 more injections in my legs on Wednesday at a simple follow-up appointment!

The recovery/down-time for the injections is just a few days.

Our dishwasher quit/the motor in it blew out last week.  I bought a new one the day after and set it up for delivery.  It was supposed to come Monday – as of 3:00 yesterday we still didn’t have a new dishwasher.  I had already made 4 phone calls about it and finally got a response of next Monday (with another 4 hour window on my part).

We found the same dishwasher at a different store (in stock), bought it, brought it home and Chris put it in.  Full refund on the first one – and we ended up saving a few dollars!!!
