Day 170: Pondering Zombies

Today my stats are the same as last week, except for a gain of one pound.

Aaack!

 But I am not overly concerned because I know last week was a slug week.

Me, the slug. Hardly any significant exercise.

But I am sore from my gym workout yesterday, which means I did some good work! And I am back to the gym today. I also am feeling my energy rise. I've been sleeping a lot lately.  Hopefully I will find balance sometime during my life.  Usually it's all peaks and valleys.

Looking out my window, the sky is overcast. I see splotches of blue and some puffy white clouds. A bit of drizzle.  Sun is trying to make an appearance.  I'm feeling really good. 

Today my kids all have the day off. I like Mondays. I make them a big breakfast and we visit a bit before I head out to teach. This morning they are watching the episode of "The Walking Dead" that they missed. I can't watch that show. Gives me nightmares.  I am back in my room blogging. I hear gasps and groans, and "That is so sick!" followed by laughter from the other room.

When I was cleaning up after breakfast, everytime I would glance at the television, it would be the goriest moment. Trying to clear that vision from my head. When did our world become so obsessed with zombies?

I wonder if all of the real violence and stress in this world created a need for this kind of escapism. It is so far fetched, but it still deals with primal fear. Hmmm....Food for thought.  Aack.  But not the kind of food zombies eat!

Happy Monday!

Year Three, Day 134: The Charmed Life of a Commuting Grandma

I just discovered that the Starbucks at Cascades Station stays open until 10:00 p.m. every night.

Just when I was wanting to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Being a commuting grandma really is not that difficult. Actually, my life pretty much rocks right now!

Today has been a very good day. And I had maybe 3 hours of solid sleep last night. The Burrito has decided she likes to sleep cuddled in the arms of her Great Grandma Blanche or Grandma Zita during the day. Or snuggled safe in her infant seat while her mom, grandma and great grandma go out to lunch, do laundry and go shopping.

I warned my daughter that the
Baby Burrito needed some awake time yesterday. Or else we would pay for it in the evening. But getting so much done with a snoozing baby in tow was so freeing. Especially since Baby Burrito's dad is elk hunting all weekend.

We finally roused her for a bath, diaper change and piano lesson early afternoon.

Baby Burrito had a fantastic first piano lesson. At…

Year Three, Day 236: Memories of Food

Well, I ALMOST got on the treadmill today!

I planned on it. I actually had a very productive morning. I woke up super early, but it was cold and I knew I would be exhausted if I actually got vertical at 4:47 a.m. So I stayed in bed and checked emails, and played a few games of Words with Friends.

I drifted off again, and finally got out of bed at 9:30.  I did my prayer, journaling, bible study and reading from my Joyce Meyer Book. (The Mind Connection). I have only one more chapter to read and I am finished with the book! At which point, I plan on going back to the beginning and rereading the whole thing. It is that good!

I did my morning hoop. It was a crisp, cold morning, but no wind. I had a good workout. Then I practiced a bit of piano and did some piano lesson planning for my students.

I had planned on grabbing a quick lunch and then hopping on the Max to the gym where I would hop on the treadmill, hop in the jacuzzi and then grab a quick shower before my students.

The bus that g…

Year Three, Day 261: The Belligerent Man, The Bus Driver, and the Woman in a Poncho

I just had a most entertaining bus ride!

I had just gotten of the Max at the Hollywood Transit Center. I was coming down the steps, when I saw the #75 to Milwaukie entering the parking lot. That was my transfer bus!  I didn't want to miss it, because at this time of day, it might be a 20 minute wait until the next one.

I had just come from a lovely sushi lunch with  my daughter and Baby Gracie at Cascades Station.

The plan was for me to teach my piano students and then return to Vancouver tonight. My daughter has much work to do at home and we all know that working at home with a 5 month old baby is a bit of an oxymoron!

Anyway, I hurried down the stairs, being very mindful. The steps were slippery in the Portland drizzle. Slipping and falling would kind of put a cramp in my day.

I slowed down when I noticed there was a long line of passengers waiting to board. At the end of the line was an older, distinguished looking gentleman.  He was wearing a long overcoat and hat.  He nodded…
