    Yep - glad to see doctors because of my clumsiness instead of normal life hurting. I think I made it half way across the stream (so about 5 feet) before I took a dip. Glad it was a warm day and I dried off quickly.

    Hello, Mojo (and anyone else checking in)! Things are going very well here - but hectic! Since we got back from vacation (was it really over a month ago), I've been super busy with work and my son's swim team (I do all of the computer work and the "trainee" I was supposed to have has been AWOL the entire season). There was one night that I got home from the swim meet at 11 am and then reviewed documents until 1 am for a 7:30 am meeting. I definitely didn't like my alarm that morning! When the swim season is over in a couple of weeks, I'll finally be able to normalize my schedule at the gym again - I saw a friend there the other night and she asked if I'd been ill because it had been so long since we'd seen each other (we used to see each other at the gym almost every day).

    My son took his first trip without me or other adults (no counting kids his age). He and 4 boys and 4 girls took a week long trip to Colorado a couple of weeks ago. He texted me when they arrived but then didn't send me a text over the next few days. I finally broke down and sent him a text to ask if he was still alive and got a 1 word response - "yes." I was definitely happy to get him back (although I did enjoy my taste of being an empty nester).

    We went to KC for my mom's 75th birthday last weekend. So I'm definitely looking forward to some extra time off this week to relax. I have to work today (but will probably duck out of here about 3pm) and then off until Monday (for another dreaded 7:30 am meeting). Lots of fun things planned. Dancing and fireworks tonight, a hike, then a BBQ then dancing and fireworks tomorrow, a hike and dancing Saturday and maybe another hike on Sunday. In other words, a lazy weekend! :heehee:

    Hope all is well with you @SaraK
    Another hot one today and likely tomorrow and the next day and...well, you get the picture.
    I'm so glad the tendon release surgery has gone so well for you and hope it will prove to be equally successful for JWS.
    Hope today is a great day. :friends:

    Yes, everything is going well here. Nothing really new to report other than, now that swim team is over, I'm getting back to my gym routine. I'm also getting ready for my son to move into the dorm (3 weeks from today). Him moving into the dorm means lots of prep work for me - he'd present himself (a week late) without sheets or towels or anything other than the clothes on his back if it were left to him! I've told him my prepping will come to a screeching halt if he doesn't at least look through his university e-mail today for tuition bills, anything the University needs for enrollment, etc. He let the iPad die about 2 months ago and hasn't charged it since!

    All of which means I'm looking at the weekend after he moves in as my relaxation time!
