Relative Calm...

My father-in-law seemed stronger yesterday.  He was talkative and alert, so that seems wonderful and he ate pretty well.  He still has a lot of things going on and we are not sure of the outcomes, but it felt that things were stable and slightly improved.  Thoughts and prayers are still greatly appreciated!!!

It was 22 degrees today during my 5 mile run.  Yes, even though I have not talked about it of late, I have still kept to my 28-30 miles of running every week.  It was cold today, but it was still. I've to be outside.  Today, however, we are anticipated to get slushy, wet snow.  And, with the cold enough temperatures expected tomorrow morning, which are anticipated to be around 20 or so, it may be too slippery for me to run outside tomorrow.  So I have to prepare to head to the indoor track and run my 50 laps to get my 5 miles in.  It is definitely not as fun as outside, but it will be safer if it is as slippery as it may be.

We have a dreaded and argumentative all damn day long retreat (meeting) tomorrow.  It is a horrible and hurtful experience I despise.  I am going to indulge in adult libations at its conclusion to lick my wounds and to drown my sorrows.

Glad to know you are all hanging in there. I hope your f-i-l continues to improve. Hope the meeting on Friday was not totally horrid.

Hope you have recovered from the 'retreat'. Sounds horrendous. Hope f-i-l continues to improve.
