Last Week's Catch-up
Time to catch up...and time to sleep in. The kids spent the night at the grandparents last night. Aside from when we are on vacation, they have never slept apart from us before. It felt kind of weird, but good - I actually slept in until 8:30!! Now I've got my coffee and I need to wake up so I can get to work.
Last week went well considering my cold still lingers. It's actually all in my nose right now. I simply can't breath right. I went to a bike clinic on Tuesday at REI and I realized that I was sitting there with my mouth hanging open trying to get a breath and I must have looked incredibly intelligent.
I got in most of my workouts, but if you go to my TNT Blog, you will see I have made a donation of $40. I won't go into all my excuses as they are not sufficient. People fighting cancer don't get to skip their treatment just because they don't feel well. I do not get to skip workouts while I am fighting to raise money for cancer research. Simple as that.

Here's how my week turned out:
Group Workouts 2/2
Extra credit ~ 1 swim
Yesterday was bright and beautiful and cold and I decided the kids needed a hike out in the fresh air and Steve actually decided to join us, which made the kids so happy! We just went to Powell Butte because it is close. It doesn't look so great in the winter, as you can see from the picture above (although Hood looked great!), but once you get into the trees on the Elderberry Trail it gets a little better. I think Steve actually enjoyed it enough to head out with us again once the weather turns nicer. Maybe we'll get him camping and fishing with us this Summer, too! It would mean so much to the kids and I to have him along on our excursions into nature.
