It’s been a heck of a week and I am pretty happy it’s over. I’ve logged lots and lots of miles on my car. Time to start a new fresh one. I ended the week with the big lung death, a visit at Urgent Care. I started shaking late Thursday night after I got back from the gym, got a really high fever, took a bath and decided to sleep it off. It didn’t go that well. I got the garbage out Friday morning at 6am. Our neighbors must love me. 200 yards that felt like 2 miles, one garbage can at the time. It felt like I dragged 500lbs so I kind of guessed that something was wrong. J was up all night trying to catch up on school and left really early before breakfast. I took C and S to school and went straight to the doctor. And as always when you sit there… maybe I am fine…? I might just need some sleep? I mentioned a pressure over my chest and ohhh my, legs moved faaast. Tried to explain that my shoulder was still hurting after the dislocation and it’s been impossible to lift weights. X-ray and meds. A very surprising sinus infection and a double sided pneumonia. But good thing it’s not my shoulder as I thought. And apparently I have enormous lungs, what a great compliment. How is it even possible to get so sick in such a short time? And why does it always happen when I am home alone with the kids? Well, it’s all better now after two days of lots of pills. And the show must go on. I even went to work today. The poor kids had to deal with the teacher from the not so sunny side.
It’s March Mayhem at the CrossFit gym. I got paired up with an excellent woman that I don’t really know and we are now competing together for a month. Let me just say, we seem to be a great match. We want to win! And we did amazing the first week. If you feel like trying out our place please let me know. I would love bring you as a guest. Eah, I need the points. It’s an outstanding place, friendly people, great coaches. Give me a call. And you get to spend an hour with moi.
Yesterday marked 6 months since our friend Ross passed away. Ross’ amazingly strong mom met up at Vertical World for a nice gathering and a balloon send off before it got dark. A beautiful way to keep in touch and stay connected to Ross. Missed by so many. Every day. Lots of hugs and tears again.
Little S had a full day tournament today and it went really well. She came back home and crashed. We are trying to shake her up a bit and get some dinner in her tummy. And I have great expectations, dinner seems really fine. Chicken souvlaki on the barbie, a nice salad with feta and olives, red rice, tzatziki (and some roasted potatoes just in case, I am not 100% sure about the red rice.) And broccoli, I have a kid that feels like she needs broccoli every day. Weird, yes, but that’s the way it is. And some fresh pineapple.
So let’s start a new week. Let’s try hard without trying too hard. Let’s shift perspective and mentality and do some good work. When you know better do better. And kick some ass.
