I jumped another hurdle today!
Am I on a roll or what?!
I rode my bike up to the Max stop.
A gentle uphill incline. But uphill! And I made it! (In first gear.)

We boarded the Max:

We got off and rode up to the gym.
Where I had a fabulous workout while getting caught up on the news.

Then we reversed our trip back home. I made a healthy lunch. Before we went to the gym, I cut up a few boneless, skinless chicken breasts and marinaded them in olive oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, oregon, and balsamic vinegar. When we got home, I sauteed the chicken. I added a little cooking sherry and cornstarch at the end to the juices. I put it over some brown rice mixed with jasmine rice, topped with black beans and Brussels sprouts.
All with time to spare because of my dependable bike!
My mom left me a voicemail earlier. She calls daily with an update on my dad and a running commentary on her life. Especially since my father's stroke. She updates me on his condition, his doctor's appointments, his meds, his moods, where they had lunch and how many people complimented her on her hair. She gets a lot of compliments on her hair. Think Marilyn Monroe hair on a 72 year-old. She pulls it off quite well. So, I look forward to her daily voicemail log. (I blog.
She vlogs! :) LOL
Today my mom told me that it was laundry day and my father was continuing to improve. They were sitting outside enjoying the sun. He even mentioned he would like to mall walk with her someday. She walks about an hour a day at the mall. Like daughter, like mother!
At the end of her vlog, this morning she said,
"I'll see you Saturday for breakfast. And don't do this crazy thing again"!
She must be referring to the Two Catholics, one-eyed homeless man and hacksaw incident.
I will try not to repeat that!
But nothing will stop me from living this crazy thing called life!
