Only 2 Days Left…

Only 2 days until election day. I think like most Americans I am ready for this election to be over. Regardless of your political beliefs please vote on Tuesday. It is the responsibility of those living in a democracy to vote. That is all I have to say.


I’ve had a difficult week, busy busy busy. The schedule I created did help, I need to tweak it a bit. I didn’t accomplish as much as I had hoped. I injured my shoulder (don’t ask me how I don’t know) and the pain has made it difficult to sleep which has made it hard to write.

Not to mention grumpy 😉

Yesterday, daughter #2 had the last swim meet before sectionals. Sectionals is the big meet to make times to go to state.  She did well. She made the time for the 50 freestyle, she didn’t make it for the 100 butterfly (her favorite stroke) but she did improve her time by 3 seconds so I think that’s a win.

I’m not sure if I will continue Row80, I’m not thrilled with the Facebook bit. It shouldn’t make a difference but it does. I’ll try to hang on through the rest of this round. It could be my shoulder talking. Anyway, let’s get to it.


Round 4 will run until December 22. The group now uses Facebook to check in. Be sure to pop over there and see how the rest of the group is doing. You can find my full post of goals here. I am listing the weekly goals.

Red is a fail.

Blue means I’ve made progress. A strikethrough means it’s completed.


  • Read 4 books a month. I finished Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie and Pumpkin Pied by Karen MacInerney, 2/4
  • Exercise 3 days a week. Exercise on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Only 1 day this week. I actually bought some workout wear, but haven’t used them.

One thought on “Only 2 Days Left…

  1. Seems like a lot of ROW-ers had a weird week last week. Yeah, I wasn’t pleased with the Facebook move either. I’ve added a bunch of ROW80 people to Feedly and I’ll try to keep up there.

    Hope your shoulder is feeling better!
