Home Alone

Mike is in FL helping look after Ronni who has pneumonia. So I am here with the kids for the duration. The day stretches out long in front of me. I so look forward to Mike coming home from work for the change of pace it gives to our day. I think if I were a single mother, even if I could afford to stay home (life insurance or whatever) I would want to work just to keep the days from all being the same. It's pretty dull.

In other news, I did 48 minutes on the stationary bike this morning for a total of 13.7 miles. I think I will have to up the resistance on it though because I wasn't even tired when I was done (my butt sure was sore though). I usually do the random hills program and the tallest hills are pretty tough but most of the ride is not bad at all. Tomorrow it's swimming and biking. I really love training, I love the sense of progress it gives me. This weekend when I do my bike/run day, I plan to do it outdoors instead of in the gym to see how much more it tires me out. :)

Oh no! Hope Ronni is ok. That's really sweet of Mike to fly home and care for his sick mother.

I hear you about the long repetitive days. And looking forward to daddy coming home. Hope Ronni is feeling better, and Mike returns to you, soon!

Tell Mike I hope his mom gets well soon.

At least it's Wednesday, the best TV night of the week!

I hope she recovers quickly.

Good job on the bike! I hope we find some hills around here!
