I decided my body needed rest after yesterday and the rest of the week. I got up, built a fire in the potbelly out back and sipped coffee and listened to birds. Ahhhhhhh. The rest of today promises to be too full.
Clothing bank....way too many huge trash bags of clothing to pick up and deliver. We could use a few dozen volunteers to sort clothing.
Then to Aunt Shirley having a bad day. Visiting nurse is there, alarm guy doing annual inspection, Empowerment Center calls me on cell, physical therapist on the house phone. Too much all at once
At the Empowerment Center...Bank of America drops off food for Memorial weekend picnic. It could feed 300. Close to a hundred pounds of pulled pork and chicken, shrimp fried rice and over 300 hot dogs and buns. Problem is it came near closing, where to store it and we typically only see about 30 clients a day. I am tempted to load up my Flex and drive to Bowie, MD and hand it to Rob.
QOTD. I like to do something on Memorial Day to remember those who died in battle.
Races....Best feeling was finish line at JFK 50 and the HUGE support from my forum friends. It says a lot about life and how encouragement will get us to do things we never thought possible. Worst feeling...about a week after Steamtown Marathon. A certain piece of male anatomy (those little round things) started to swell and turn blue and hurt like hell. (please don't fall off like a toe nail.
) Doc said it was insufficient support during marathon. Extremely uncomfortable for about 2 weeks. I had lots of support during JFK.
Happy last day of school Moose.
My old school has teacher professional day today. Diversity training. There are 13 teachers retiring. They told them that they don't have to come in.
