We picked up our rental car today, and drove a bit around this side of the island. Even found a shopping center with a supermarket, so I now have yogurt and granola for breakfast.

Our hotel has free activities, like lei making and learning to hula. Not sure we'll get to all of these (which make me laugh, I have to say) - but they turn on lights in the bay and the manta rays come up and play in the lights - that we HAVE to see!

Enjoying the warmth - so nice after the storms in WA state!

Drugstore would not fill Xarelto prescription yesterday for blood thinners for my blood clot in my lung.. They said they would call my Dr. first thing this morning to get it approved. They did not,new pharmacist lost my prescription order. So I went to my G.P and waited while they phoned the drugstore. No luck with what they did with my prescription. They said they would look after it today and do not leave. Dr. office called the hospital to find out what it was for and wrote a new prescription. Gave me free samples of Xarelto for 3 weeks. After that with his help I will get the lower strength in 3 weeks for 6 months free. They are suppose to be $60.00 a week. I ended up walking for 80 minutes today and spent 65 minutes at the gym on the bike. Exercise that is not too hard is suppose to help my blood clot. I made sure to not get my heart rate past 100 till I am better,the range for my age and weight is 90-140,any lower and it will not help the heart. The prescription is suppose to help a lot within 3 weeks with the stronger dose.

I was sore today from yesterday's bike ride and Saturdays run. Andrew, my trainer, had no pity on me today. I had a big weekend, so check out my Sunday blog if interested. It is close to bedtime for me. 4:00 comes too soon. Spark on!

Bess you do bring up memories of evening walks and old movies in a campus theater, so many years ago.

We slept in yesterday and I did not get in any exercise. The day was a bit humid and cloudy and we did get the tail end of the Northern California storm last night. Rain is a real event here, I went out at 11 pm to watch for a few minutes.

With a serious illness or caring for someone with a seriou health issue, it is hard to keep cheerful and find time and energy to maintain healthy habits.

Good morning. I have to be at the condo office in a couple of hours with another board member. At least this time we'll know when we teach the new site manager how to do it, she'll learn and do it. Now I have to jump on the property manager to do his job. I'm always shocked when people don't work as hard as I would, yet that's most people in the world. Our old property manager was so good for so long, it's easy to think that what he did was what they all did. Alas, superlative is rare.

Bess, how fun to wander around the old stomping ground. I remember being bored by the older folks "remembering when", and here we all are, remembering when.

Happy Monday! Had a full weekend, for sure. Time with a friend on Friday, parents came into town and we worked some on the house on Saturday, and going through what I have and planning Christmas gifting on Sunday - with some cleaning and time playing with the puppy mixed it.

ST last night, cardio today. Really trying to get nutrition on track (so my weight will follow) which means that I'm recommitting to tracking everything, even on the weekends when I've been slacking. Back to basics.

Hope that everyone has a great week!

Good morning!

Thank you for the walk down memory lane, Bess. And what sweet ones you have. Also love the image of your DH and you dancing, Maree. So great to savor the now and the then.

Stunning day in VA yesterday. It took me by surprise, and I loved it. We are heading to Ohio for meetings tomorrow. Long car ride but at least I don't have to pack all my clothes in a mini suitcase. Should arrive without wrinkles. It's the little things...

Got goals: lunges today, with the goal of 50.

Take care everyone.

Toni

Thanks y'all. We had a splendid day. We met at an urban university and had more fun than any two people ought to expect. That first date was a magical day too and every year I post a blog about it on my Other Blog. Should you like to read it, here's a link:

We went back to his old apartment first and walked our old familiar route to school, about 4 blocks. We meandered around the campus, complaining like two old fogeys about how things have changed - how ugly the school of the arts architecture is and what a disconnect that is - ugly buildings supposed to inspire beautiful art. As an urban campus, all the classes had once been in 19th century brownstone buildings. As the school grew ( into VCU - big basketball school) it began tearing down the beautiful old buildings. Faculty rose up in horror and much of what was slated for the wrecking ball was saved, but by golly - they sure can build ugly now. Instead, the growth spread across the old commercial district. Still ugly, but less of an architectural loss. One of the old music buildings is now a center for women's studies and the secret back door where you could get in to spend the night if you were locked out of the dorms is now blocked. Of course - maybe you can't get locked out of the dorms any more. The wheel spins. Things change. I'm glad I've lived and loved to see it all.

Wishing all my maintainer pals a happy Monday.

Happy Monday all!

I have my annual physical this morning, so no food for me until after I get blood drawn - it will be after 9 AM, so I'll be HUNGRY then!

I continue to slowly deflate from my vacation weight gain, which feels good. I met my 5k/day step goal last week (actually got 7K or more steps most days), so this week's goal will be 6k steps/day. I probably won't need to work to meet this either, but don't want to raise the goal since I'll be starting PT this week as well.

Linda, I hope they'll be able to get your clot busted and iron up without too much ordeal - my heart goes out to you.
Phebess, enjoy Hawaii!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Good morning!

Monday, Monday. emoticon After crossfit class, my day will begin with a trip to the dentist for a cleaning. One of those necessities. I was sorry to hear of your weekend at the hospital, Linda, and hope your medical team can discover a solution for you.

Congrats on your 45th date anniversary Bess. That's so sweet. There's no feeling in the world quite like that of falling in love. I hope the endorphins rushed once again as you trekked across that "sacred" ground! DH and I felt the same way as we danced together at the Lighthouse at the Marina this past August. Great memories are worth celebrating, aren't they? Lynch, glad you were able to witness "young love" at the wedding. Phebess, glad to hear you arrived in Hawaii safe and sound, as it looked like the Pacific Northwest was getting slammed with storms. Dee--great new picture!! Biking, running--go get 'em, Strongdawg! Crossing fingers for THIS week to hear good news, Terri. Hope parking goes well Nell. And I can relate to getting that garage in "useable" shape again, Poindextra.

DD and DH worked tirelessly on the house yesterday. DD is a journeyman carpenter and I had three projects for her, but she did those three plus two more to really make this place shine. DH power-washed the front sidewalk, and it is just gorgeous as it is white again. My cousin will be arriving to the area on Wednesday, but will be spending time with me and my brother on Friday and Saturday, so I have a few more evenings to complete some projects, I promise to try to post pictures when completed. I still have to buy some new pieces of furniture, but I really don't expect to find what I want on a showroom floor, but you never know!

Lean lunch to pack. Hope all have a happy and healthy Monday!!
