The aviary, anxiety, and getting on with it

Mish-mash catch-all post with updates on various happenings in my life. Busy days this shortened work week, but before I get too engulfed by various things I wanted to provide a quick update on current events. Cheepers I wish I'd thought to take a more recent photo, but Cheepers is still with us and appears…

Training #95 – Best day of my life

Thursday morning, training with J. And I confess - I have this doomsday clock countdown going on in my head realizing that his well-deserved holiday break is 2 weeks away and we are down to 4 sessions remaining in 2016. Okay, so maybe doomsday clock is a bit (okay, maybe way over-the-top) melodramatic, but I…

Office move this week

After months of planning an entire office move with an office technology upgrade, it's finally all coming together this week. It has been several boatloads of work to get us to this point, everything from looking at office space, deciding on a place, negotiating lease terms (lawyers - many positives and not so positives on…

Training #63 – Oh happy day

Glitter bombing (in the nicest possible manner)

When I began this post before work this morning, I had some specific things I wanted to talk about. Then I got to the office (a rare Tuesday appearance) and found even more to talk about. How to choose, how to choose. But it's me. I routinely write long posts and include everything spinning around inside…

Training #55 – Don’t stop me now

Monday morning and training with J. We are in the process of going through Dr. Spencer's training plan for me, which is very different than what J and I have been doing. Still good, just different. J also adds in these active rests between exercise each exercise and keeps this in the ballpark of the…

Ordinary people

When I was leaving the office this evening our maintenance man was polishing or cleaning or buffing - something with a machine and big honking brush thing - the tile floors in the lobby. I greeted him as I do when our paths cross, and he turned off his machine and reached out to stop me.…
