Hi fit babes! So good to be here and see you!
Jody, hiking is one of my favorite things to do but I don't do enough of it! Too lazy to get in the car and drive to a trailhead that is usually full of other hikers. Ha! I have not seen Breaking Bad so you won't get any spoilers from me. DH and I are looking towards northern AZ for a possible move in retirement. I think there's some hiking there. I really enjoyed hiking in Yosemite when I went years ago. Congratulations of your weight loss and meeting your goals! I'm still enjoying the BB program, but it is increasing in intensity. There isn't really any yoga, it's more like extreme stretching to me.
I'm on week 9 of 13 so I haven't done Cathe's new workouts yet. I really like this BB program but I miss Cathe too. I am so sorry you are dealing with more unreasonable people who won't get vaxxed! I am pretty angry about it.
Hi Mary! I'm glad you got a new doctor who can relate to your activity level! Have you been told you have to have surgery or is there another way to go? That was quite the car ride you took on vacation! Glad you had a wonderful time and it was all worth it. I completely understand your students getting on your last nerve--I don't get it either!! I am shocked and really disappointed in how many anti-vaxxers there are. And my response to anyone who thinks the government is tracking them with the vaccine is, "What makes you think you are so important that the government would want to do that?"
Lisa, I am SO sorry little Suki broke her leg!!!
Poor girl! I am glad DH is helping her so well! I understand how you feel about your sister getting sick after she chose not to get jabbed, it would be hard to be supportive for me too! My sister is getting married outside in early Oct. and my Dad asked that she not have a receiving line so he wouldn't have to shake hands with people. I thought about that later, and felt he had no right to ask that because he has not done everything he can to stay safe. I haven't said anything to him but if something like that comes up again, I sure will. Good job on the meditation, strength work and riding! I don't meditate and I know I need to.
So a friend and I are heading out of town for a few days this Thursday! I cannot WAIT! We are driving to central Oregon and we are going to get spa treatments, go kayaking and catch up. The air quality isn't great there but it's supposed to be better by the time we arrive. DH and I cancelled our trip to San Diego for the end of September and decided to do a road trip east for a few days instead. We were going to go to another Steampunk convention but it is all indoors and we do not feel very comfortable with that. I have a concert to go to just after getting back from central OR and I was glad that the event center is mandating proof of vaccine or a negative Covid test to attend. And we still have to wear masks inside. I'm OK with that!
So our hospitals are at capacity in some areas and we have been mandated to wear masks indoors again. Our office reopening has been pushed back again to October 18. I hit the roof when this happened because we are going backwards from where we could be if we didn't have so many idiots (yes, that is what I call them and it includes my dad) refusing to take the best precaution we have. I did not realize at all that this could happen and my disappointment in my fellow citizens is pretty deep. Someone I know stated that things will get back to normal once everyone is vaccinated. Well, that is not happening and it's not going to happen. So I have no idea where things will end up and I am tired of the unknown.
But I will say I still love working at home and hope to do it 3 days a week (or more) for the rest of my days until retirement (seven years if I make it that long)! DH is still working at home too and he'll be in the last group to go back to the office because he's in IT. He is also going to get shoulder surgery in Oct. A 2 hour surgery=4 month recovery.
But there is no reason to be outside between then and March anyway so it will be fine.
Thank you for listening to me rant, I really appreciate it! I hope you all remain safe and healthy and we get back to some kind of normal in the near future. Take care! Tracy
