A GOOD CATCH

There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart...pursue those.
This is one of the hardest things for me. I can be so hard-headed about what I want, and what seems right, and how it should be so perfect. Letting go should be so easy, but I always make it hard.
I have ALL THE FEELS right now, but I just can’t seem to put it on internet paper.

Current lunch time/bed time reading material.

As an assistant to attorneys, I proof read a high volume of memos, motions, and draft/revise/transcribe correspondence letters to clients and opposing counsel every day.

I find that reading books of interest helps me to write better, remember and use those “big words”, and keeps my ideas of life, people, and ideas fascinating.

The book before this was Hunger Games, which I burned through quickly. Need to buy Catching Fire as soon as I am done with this thick autobiography.

Payday funds

Today is payday for me. Excellent time to get back into lap swim after work seeing how summer arrived early. Also time to bitch about the cost of $4 per swim at YMCA (the cheapest place within 20 mile radius), and how much it cost to fill my gas tank up on the way to work this morning.

I’m guessing I’ll be tapped out at 1,400 yards. I haven’t swum since early December šŸ˜³

Adventure booked already!

Guess who needs to drop about 15 pounds to make up for what will accidentally fall in the mouth during Taste of Chicago weekend causing it all to pile back on in one day?!?

Me! Me! Me! Just booked the flight to Chicago for July!

Hey Chiberia. Get your weather straightened out. I’m shopping for shirt dresses and sandals for hot summer days.

Hoping the Cubs are playing so I can have an excuse for ballpark beer and chili cheese fries…

Gorgeous views. Tandem biking. Beer. Hiking steep mountains and seeing buffalo. JalapeƱo Cucumber Margarita. More biking. More drinking. Peddle boating around the harbor.

That was my great (more adventurous than relaxing) weekend on Catalina Island. Unfortunately no snorkeling due to the chilly, overcast weather that blew in, but still so much fun!

Hello there internet. Yesterday it was 90f when I got home from work. Took the dog for a walk on a shaded trail instead of running.

Later, when I was lazy on the couch, I texted Tribander to tell me to go to the gym. She did. I went. 35 minutes of cardio + abs. Self portrait taken in the cardio room where nobody can see me taking self photo.

Counting down the hours, leaving tomorrow for a weekend on Catalina Island. Bonus: I get to try out my new waterproof camera when we go snorkeling in the cold Pacific Ocean.

When you talk smack about the football team I have been following since I was a toddler in diapers, and make a disgusted  face every time I wear the teams apparel, guess what??????

You get spammed with photos of your dog wearing Raiders gear and talk about how he joined the Raider Nation when I babysit him.

Don’t dish it out unless you can take it back. 

Doesn’t Max look super cute in a Raiders beanie!!!

p.s. He doesn’t like to run more than 1 mile and stops every block to poop.

Babysitting this old man for the week, while a friend is out of town for work. Who knew beagles were so nosy and shed so much fir? 

He is pretty cute though. We’ll see how much he likes a 3 mile run tomorrow morning.

Sunday Funday: rode 37.4 miles with the guys. To the San Clemente Pier and back. Rat bastards made me climb a short hill on the way back that was an 18% grade. I love/hate them for this.

Regarding the earbuds, I mostly use them to block out the wind, which is abundant in my area. If the music is on, it is low and there no traffic on the street or bike paths.

A year ago this month I met the guys (plus 1 more no pictured) in a bike shop. I am ever so thankful for them. They have made me a better biker and a more patient person.

We were supposed to road bike today however, one guy hasn’t fixed his wheel and the other was toast from yesterday’s ride. My legs are still sore from Thursday’s workout, so we went for a hike with his dog. 

We got to a creek and found these baby turtles swimming near their mom but they looked stuck. Turns out some irresponsible dick left his fishing line tangled in a tree which went into the creek with a hook and bait still attached.

We pulled the line in and this poor little guy had took the bait with a hook stuck in his mouth. We couldn’t get it out so we dropped him off at a vet. 

Pretty happy we didn’t ride and saved a little turtle instead. He would have starved to death.
