On the Mend and On the Road

Today I made use of the furniture in my hotel room for my 43.  I used this little footstool as a bench. Screen shot 2013-04-15 at 7.54.22 AM I did a lunge, one foot on a bench (stool), with a twist.Screen shot 2013-04-15 at 7.54.35 AM

not me (sadly I'm not on a beach right now)

This was one of those times when I did 43 with my left leg on the stool and another 43 with my right leg on the stool.  (We all know that I wish I was on a beach but I’m just pretending!!)

The rest of my workout was Turbo Fire Fire 45.  For some reason it was hard – I must be more tired than I thought I was!  Oh, well – I needed to do something before I spend the day sitting!!

Yesterday afternoon, Tim (my twin) and I took my dad home.  He really did not look like someone who had just had a major heart attack (and surgery) 3 days earlier!  I hope that this is a wake-up call to make some changes but I can’t force anything and he is a “big boy.”

On the way back to Abilene, we stopped to see our Poppa (98 years old!).Poppa

Overall, my trip to Texas has been nice (other than the initial reason I came down) since I got to spend time with all of my siblings, my dad, my Poppa and my aunt!!  I told my dad that next time he wanted to see us he could just call and invite us down – it would be easier all around!!!

I’m heading home today (WooHoo!!!)!  However, Chris is leaving this morning to go to the sim (simulator training) in Wichita.  Because I didn’t know until yesterday when I would be leaving, he made arrangements for the boys for the night – both are going home with good friends (of their’s and mine).

Yesterday evening it hit me – I’m driving through Wichita anyway – boys won’t be home….so I think I will stay the night with Chris in Wichita!!!  It’s a win all the way around – 2 hours less driving today, spending the night with Chris (and not home alone), boys are happy to spend a Monday night with their friends – WIN!!!

Happy Monday – I’m hitting the road!


PS – Good luck to all Boston Marathon runners today!!
