Update on mom...

She's home from the hospital and I called her after work. She sounds really good. She got a full nights sleep last night and she even raved about the flowers. I don't know about you, but when I'm miserable out and out sick, you could give me the Hope Diamond, and the best I can do is go, "Oh, fank-ooo, nife, shinny rock", roll over, and go back to sleep. So, the fact that she went on and on to me about how lovely they look and how she wished I was there with my camera to take pictures, tells me she's doing a lot better. Thank you to everyone who took the time to wish her a speedy recovery.

I am relieved. More so than I thought I'd be. It's like someone took a rock off my chest, one I wasn't quite sure I even had.

Work today was dead as a doornail. It is raining and cold here, and I'm trying to convince myself to bundle up and go for my walk. This is the third day of rain and part of me is just totally unthrilled with it now. "Rain? Walk? Me? Nah!"

I did put in... 3.25 miles just by working. But that's only a tad over half of what I'm trying to do for the day. I really need to get motivated.

Honestly, if I didn't hate malls so much, I'd consider going to one, just to keep dry and warm.

I broke down and bought a six pack of lemon flavored Propel fitness water. I consider myself totally whacked now. Oh yeah, and Terry, a girl I work with, told me about a fairly long walking trail one town over from here, that I will have to check out sometime. It goes along the Blackstone river, and she ranted about how lovely it is. Must check it out someday. Apparently, one area that I can get to fairly easily is six miles long. So, if I can do that one day, that would be twelve miles. That's a goal to reach for.

But... I still need to get out the door today. God, it looks awful outside. But, I do have that sorta waterproof jacket my mother gave me... and I'm not made of sugar.

But I'm getting darned sick of walking in the wet. I really am.
