|one of the devices of torture|
Needless to say, it did finally dawn on me how insane I was being. It was probably good that I had the entire day to myself, and didn't need to subject anyone else to that sort of nuttiness.
The reason for this trip back was to play in golf tournament hosted by the company I used to work for. It was great to see a lot of those familiar faces again, and catch up a little bit. Our team (Team V-I-C-T-O-R-Y) was not the team in first place, but we had enough fun to make up for it. Shout out to Nina, Molly and Wendy for thoroughly entertaining me for the day. I was even able to get an ab workout in when I had to laugh for 10 minutes straight over one of the greatest putts in history. I also won a box of balls (pink ones - so I love them a little extra) in the drawing after the tournament. Anyone who has golfed with me before knows that I tend to go through my fair share in a round - so it was the perfect prize.
I got a little bit of a walk in on Saturday at the Waseca Parade. My cousin Kory is running for re-election for State Representative for 26A (I think). It is a pretty short walk, which was good because the temp was about 14 degrees. On Sunday I got to hang with a couple of my favorite people - my nieces Macy and Jorey - while their mom and dad went to the Twins game. There was a lot of "wrestling", (which is basically them running at me and trying to knock me down while I sit on the floor) playing on the "park", protecting them from bees (you haven't lived until you have gotten an enthusiastic cheer of "you got it Natalie!!!!" from a 5 year old while she jumps up and down) as well as making planes out of tinker toys. They are adorable, and so fun. After that I went to Cerini Village for dinner (shout out to Marilyn for making the most delicious, and huge, lasagna ever!!).
I didn't get all of the exercise in that I probably should have. I didn't eat every meal as thoughtfully as I probably should have. But I was busy, fit a lot in, and am now back home and ready to get down to business. I have one more new session with YC tomorrow - I believe it is biceps and back. Hopefully I just have one week left of not being able to move, and then my body will be used to this. I will survive this, and I will be better for it.....I just hope that shower curtain leaves me alone!!
