    No walking yesterday, but I did get 7.07 miles done in 137 mins around noon today. Went up past the water tanks.

    No walking today. Headache all day long plus a very sore, bloody toe. Shoes would not be fun.

    Chris that is awful. No car and a sore toe! I hope things got better.

    Hope everyone had a great fourth of July. Working on my garden bed. This one was taken out years ago to put in a play set for the grand babies. Now putting it back.

    Sirens are going nuts tonight. I hope nothing serious

    Rocky and I went riding this evening. He was crossing in front of me and almost got hit. Crazy lady just came barreling through. Didn't even slow down. Barney was flung out due to the sudden stop. His clip broke! He is fine now. He came to Rocky and got back on. Other cars were stopped. People are nuts.

    To hot most of the day here.

    There were no July4th fireworks scaring us this year... for the first time in decades or even ever. It feels so gratifying for people to finally realize the danger. Maybe being evacuated by forest fires helped it sink in. Or having PGE regularly shut down electricity due to the danger. It's a new awareness. <3

    My sciatica is (fingers crossed) almost nonexistent today, for the first time in a couple months. Still not up to walking though. My left knee is still real wonky. I know it needs to be replaced. Just not mentally prepared yet.

    Shelley, I hope Rocky and Barney are okay. So scary. And maddening.

    Shelley, I hope the boys are okay. Crazy!
    Paula, glad your sciatica is better. I have to be really careful of my knees. :'(
    We had fireworks until after midnight last night. :o
    Did I tell you guys, yet...Sara and Pete and Ronan are expecting Little Boy #2 in November!!
    Got 6.12 miles done in 118 mins this morning. It was nice out there. Warm in the sun but the clouds made it nice.

    Paula we had lots of nut cases firing off fireworks into the night. So glad to hear some are not. Glad to hear you are doing better. That being said, get your knee replaced. Not getting any younger so hop to it. :p

    Chris you have mentioned it. But I never tire of hearing you are going to be a grandma again. Wonderful.

    Thanks for all the concern for my guys. They are well. Work was hectic today. Then Commissioner meeting. Our elected officials gave themselves huge raises this year. While most are facing tighter budgets! I so am not voting for any of them. Seems some areas around my yard had a slight decrease in ear wigs tonight. The one clematis was still covered. I realize that daddy long legs eat them. Noticed an increase in their numbers. And they are actively hunting them!

    15 pushups this morning.

    Chris - hope your toe is on the mend! So excited about the new kiddo! The fall will be here before you know it.

    Paula - so glad to hear about your back....sciatica impacts everything.

    Fireworks were insane here. Like a war zone. I just don't understand it. Such an impact on veterans and pets. Littlr Ollie was a mess with the cone on his head from surgery recovery...he goes back to the vet Thursday.....3 weeks since his surgery. Hoping he can get it off and be reunited with his brothers.

    Work has been so tough....people are just burnt out on life I think.....my energy has been low also.

    Highest weight ever: 306 (2013)
    Ultimate goal weight: 160
    6/30 - 172.6
    7/6 - 169.8
    July goal - 165

    I want to really focus in July. The good news is Jim has decided he needs to get it together also. He's up about 20 pounds and is unhappy about it. He's been keeping us too stocked up with wine! I've pulled back a lot on it. But he's been drinking too much...all goes to the belly. We agreed no wine runs this month. Trust me we have lots of other alcohol (all low carb 😃)

    Work for both of us has been so tough. Challenging time to lead people.

    We are off from the 14th - 23.....no real plans...Bella should be starting her summer job at a 55 ans over (she needs so many medical tests...taking FOREVER). I'm not getting on a plane with all of this craziness. Since we don't know her schedule yet, we are hoping some day trips will suffice. Too much financial this year with the basement, roof and the cat!!

    Hope everyone has a great Wed....going to be a hot one. I better get out and walk now!

    Strength training - 30 minutes and treadmill - 30 minutes. Trying to get back in a routine.

    Karen, I think you’re absolutely right people are burnt out on life. So many issues to deal with. It’s hard.

    Today was my father’s 87th birthday. We had a gathering at my house. Also my sister and her husband returned to Dubai today. As usual I cried when my sister left. It was a nice family dinner!

    Kathy that is so sentimental. You have a wonderful family. You are going to make your goal this month!

    Chris that is to funny. Now you just have to watch for the deliveries. So much fun.

    Karen I sure hope she gets all her testing done before school resumes. Fingers crossed for good results. Ditch the alcohol. Empty calories that are not needed. It does look sophisticated though. And such pretty glasses.

    Paula are you checking into getting your knee done? Hope so. Have at least 15 bags of ice ready. It helped Rocky tremendously.

    Still killing earwigs nightly. I am off next week. Not sure if I am doing much. Need to finish a garden project. Open a bank account to deposit all this money I am entrusted with. Thinking of painting a guest bedroom. Have to remove the popcorn ceiling first. My house will be officially free of the stuff then. 150.8 this morning. I am shooting to be under 150 by vacation end.

    Shelley- I'm off next Thursday and Friday into the following week. Nothing special planned either since we are waiting for Bella's work schedule. I do hope to do organizing and tasks + some fun. I do want to exercise each day!

    Chris - the Amazon guy knows my name...embarrassing lol. Happy gifting! I know they will appreciate it.

    Kathy - glad you had a nice family dinner 😀

    I'm taking my friend Tracy out tonight to celebrate a belated 50th birthday dinner. Lower key...thats now she rolls. Dinner at a nice Italian place and then going to see the Elvis movie. Will be good to cath up with her.

    I did relaxing yoga last night...great class...and was relaxing!

    Hope today is a great Friday!

    Karen, Amazon guy knowing your name is so funny!!
    Shelley, I am so excited!! Just want to order all of it for her...okay...for them.
    Kathy, sounds like dinner was great and leaving for home was sad. Sending love.
    Today is our 39th Anniversary. We've been together 43 years...and he's still alive...damn!! We are doing NOTHING!!!
    I did do 60 mins w/my trainer this afternoon. Going to walk to the post office tomorrow.
    That's it for now!
