a much needed rest day...

Both physically and mentally. Whew! What a week. I am glad I made it through the training schedule and accomplished the goals I set out to do. Thanks for the advice from my posters on last post--and for telling me to chill out a bit. :) I really need to do that more...sometimes I think it would help me to be just a little teensy weensy bit of a slacker, you know? I have sometimes *cough cough* been known to take things too seriously. :)

This weekend brought me some good news and some bad...my friend in surgury is home and doing much better, and I talked to my Chicago buddy and her Dad is home and his heart surgery went well. So my prayers were answered on that end. On a bad note, I've been praying tons for 2 kids from a nearby suburb who were in an awful car accident Friday after school....just leaving the school parking lot and hit a tree. None were wearing seat belts. They are the sons of 2 of my mom's friends. One is looking like he will be OK...but one is not. This has really been a rough start to this year for my friends and loved ones. I hope things turn around soon. I feel like I keep mentioning bad news in my posts but it's been on my mind and has translated to my training, you know? I try to focus on the positive and hope for the best....

So tonight maybe a little yoga, and a nice relaxing dinner. I went hog wild at Trader Joe's this weekend--love that place. These cinnamon almonds I got there are so addictive! Hopefully Matt and I will have a nice night to chill out and then it's back to the pool bright and early Tuesday morning.

Hope everyone in blogland is having a good Monday!

Trader Joe's rocks, they have the best Salsa. Unfortunately they also have my favorite beer that I need to lay off of.

I hope the kids are going to be okay. One of my neighbors died in a car accident in Michigan. We are surrounded by death everyday, but don't forget all the positive as well. We are fortunate to be able to follow our IM goals and dreams. Live, love, learn.

So sorry to hear the news...you're right, we are very fortunate!
