Home to sleep, eat, bathroom.....................Aaah

This past weekend was nice to get out with my friend Dag. She always has a good time up her sleeve. She takes fabulous band (awesome tunes)pictures, which some are on her TwistedUterus blog. She even got a pic of me with my tongue hanging out. At least she did not blog the one on flickr with the bite of food! I am really getting to enjoy the air guitar men who stand on the sideline and try to figure them out.
Every night has been late for me, because the kids are involved in the school musical & track. Son volunteered for the 3200m & got 2nd place in his first track meet at my ole alma mater!!

I have been trying to utilize my time around the area so I don't have to drive home and then drive back (40 minutes driving time). It is just too many miles for one day. I usually get to the school with an hour & half to spare. Sometime times I sleep, I eat, I read. Oh so tiring when I get to bed at midnight. Sometimes I have to fit in a track meet for my son, two kids dentist appts, dr for me, dr for son and drive them back to school and find some food to eat in the car. Oh yeah I fit in hours at work. This will go on through Saturday then thank goodness it sis over.
One night I was home because I have been having a bout of a pot of coffee coming out of my butt uncontrollably. The doctor said it was viral gastroenteritis and gave me some gas & diarrhea med. I also found out that my self diagnosis (docs hate this - one thing I missed out in life was to be a doc) of my hip pain was correct of Trochanteric Bursitis. I can't stop what I am doing maybe I will have to go to my Ortho surgeon for an injection. It usually goes away with exercise but I have had this for a month.
What can I say...Later!

Out in the Snow!

I must give a big thanks to my friend Dag. Here are her photos from the adventure!
This snow time may not have happened without the nudge of Dag & sunshine rays because it was windy & cold. There was almost a foot of new snow. It turned out to be a beautiful day between the mountainous ridges of the tri-county area of Snyder, Centre & Union County. We ventured out to the old railroad grade west of Cherry Run. This area is so peaceful that it brings on an errieness. We had to open up our arm pit vents on our jackets for a cool advantage to our sweat.
It was a real joy to have the experience of trying out her snowshoes while she used her cross country skiis. Some of the downed trees on the path caused us to contort our bodies and work with nature on the ground.
We were out about two hours & it was quite worthwhile!

Glad to have the Boooot. I only have a small blister where my sock must have bunched in the heel area of my boot. I would love to get a pair of snowshoes but would it be worth it for me because it seems I have been shying away from cold winter outdoor activities.

Ninja with bamboo swords eeeyawh!

Dork hats galore!

Mission Accomplished!

March Snow is Raging In

I received a call earlier in the week from friend Twisted Uterus to go to the north for a bike ride & brunch at a local brewery on Sunday . I think this was spurred by the lovely weather we had on Monday & Tuesday - the birds & bees & the coconut trees. This has changed the outlook to SNOW forecast for today (started) with up to ten inches by midnight & snow showers through Sunday. She has offered her snowshoes while she uses her CC skiis. Shall I grasped this new activity? It may be worth a try, because I have a tinge of excite "DO IT"!

The following was given to the whole club by my Fencing Instructor who is 80 years old. He really, really believes is true I guess he is the elder wise man to know.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding, the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our ATTITUDES!"
