Just a quick check-in today for me. This past weekend was really busy...I spent all day Sat. still cleaning up from when DS and his girlfriend moved out. They still have tons of stuff stored at our house and don't seem in a very big hurry to get it moved out. I am gathering it in one place and one of these days, I will load it up in the truck and dump it at their house.
Then maybe I will be able to park another car in the garage.
We had the hardwood flooring for our house delivered on Saturday. Still have some ceilings to stipple, so the flooring will be waiting for a couple of weeks, but that is OK. We are still planning to have the flooring laid in the master bedroom by Christmas and that is still do-able. By whom, we are not sure
yet, but it will probably be DH and me.
We had DM out yesterday afternoon to have a funeral for her cat. She lost her cat this week after 19 years so we buried it by the bird bath on the acreage. DM is 84 now and is already talking of getting another cat. OMG. I am subtley trying to talk her out of it because I know who would get to keep the cat when DM is gone...and it won't be my brother, either.
Then sat down for a while to watch the Grey Cup...slept through that one until it was time to get ready to go to the theatre. It was a rather late night last night, so I am dragging this morning.
I went to the track for my cardio workout and discovered that the battery was dead on my workout tape.
Sooooo, instead of running back to my office, I hoofed it around the track - promised to do 2 miles in 30 minutes - and cut the workout short. But, I did take extra time to get the stretches in.
I have one more session (I think) with my trainer. It will probably be a post assessment to see how far I have come during the training time. She has been telling my that I have great arms, but I have always avoided wearing anything sleeveless because they are so flabby. But, I think she may be right. I was looking at them in the mirror this weekend and they are getting quite toned now. I can even see some muscle definition in them. WOOHOO! By summer, I should be able to go sleeveless most of the time.
DH got a call on Friday about taking on some contracts in Third World countries. Some people that he worked with a few years ago are retiring soon and are bidding on some international training work. DH was concerned that it would be in competition with the organization that they are leaving, but they are planning to pick up the work that the organization doesn't want anymore.
They are wanting DH to align with them because he has the expertise and experience in these countries, so when his name goes on the proposals, the foreigners generally give them the contracts. Kind of a compliment that he is wanted, but he wasn't sure that he wanted to do that kind of travelling anymore. It has been a bit stressful in the past, especially when we were caught in the Middle East during the 9-11 events.
At his present job, he has arranged to have consulting days (so he doesn't even have to take vacation to do them - kinda like double dipping on the salary) so he can take the time to do them. Soooo, if he decides to align with these people, we may be finding ourselves in some very unique countries again. I can hardly wait to go to Chad.
Well, I guess I should stop this rambling stuff... hope everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving and that you all have a wonderful time with food, friends and family. Notice that sugar, carbs, off program, starch does not begin with f, so it is out, out, out. Take care.
