… Sunday Travel …

Yes, another trip that feeds into my weekend. I love to work … I love my job … however sometimes things just seem off … this just happens to be one of those times … things are just plain off … so when things are off at work and with all this traveling, leaving on a Sunday is just plain painful. I miss my daughters already … even if at least my little one is beside me … and even though my oldest is at college … still so painful.

I feel that this is my time … It should be my time … the whole day just not a part of the day …

Enough whining onto a little picture fun …

I semi-tried the Dr. Oz 3 day cleanse. Semi, I say, because I really never finished with just the juices. I didn’t care for the mid-day drink, however breakfast and lunch were not half bad. My daughter wants to do it with me when she comes home next week … so round two is coming up … I think I still just want to do two juices and a sensible dinner. Will keep you posted.

My new favorite, flaxseed. More on that later.

My friend took me to Duke’s Grill. A tiny burger diner in the middle of Monroe. She didn’t want to take me … I guess she thinks I can be a little thrown off by the environment, 🙂 however in actuality I think that I am pretty easy going, maybe? 🙂 OK, maybe not … HOWEVER, this time at least I thoroughly enjoyed the hamburgers and the quaint joint. “Joint” I don’t think I have ever used that word before today.

Duke’s Grill since 1951 and also featured in the travel channel. Not bad.

Soccer season is back. Can’t tell you how much happiness it brings to me to watch her play. The team is doing wonderful … I am so happy AND proud.

We had a little scare last week, as Titti felt pain in her knee and the trainer was fearing a meniscus tear, thankfully it was just a muscle strain. Doctor advised to use a spin bike to get well.  (Just … I say .. as it is a much better alternative to anything meniscus oriented … nothing at all would have been better, though)

Can’t even tell you the relief I felt when the doctor said everything looked great.

She did however have to sit one game out … she was NOT happy. 😉

I think the pain started because they had to interrupt the game in order to let the lighting pass … after playing a half and then having to wait on what was a very COLD RAINY night and then only having 5 minutes to warmup to play the second half …

I think improper warm up was the culprit of the muscle strain. I believe that more attention should be paid to stretching and warmup in kids sports today.

On other life events … we also volunteered at our local Ronald McDonald House … and visited the doggy park to let Mr. Dante run free.

Oh speaking of Dante … he is on a diet … that is right … veterinary imposed. Why? Still daunts me … he looks perfect to me … Actually he eats really well … we don’t feed him table food … we only give him doggy food, a tablespoon of yogurt, veggies and fruit. OK, the occasional Parmesan cheese … Maybe this is the only transgression.

So we now are on diet food and we are doing great … OK, he is … me on the other hand … Not so much ;).

1.5 pounds lost only 6 to go. I could use some loosing myself ;).

… a dopo … Need to head for the airport … J
