While Erik is Home

My workouts this week have been about housework - and they have created aches and pains in places I didn't know I had.  Friday I got off work REALLY early and spent the morning attacking the clutter and grim in my mom's kitchen.  With a little elbow grease, and my handy dandy broom I tackled everything and three hours later had Chinese for lunch and a little nap.  Then Brian and I spent the evening finishing finals for this term.

Saturday we got up early for groceries, Erik worked at the Wheelchair Basketball Tournament, I spent another few hours at my mom's dragging garbage out of my old bedroom and sorting through clothes to determine what will be worn again and what can be sent on to the mission.  We spent the evening with friends playing Dicecapades - which is HILARIOUS and were only slightly hungover on Sunday morning!

Sunday we spent the day cleaning our house and making Runza's.  I'm hoping to get a quick run in tonight and get a few more things done at my mom's house.  We are planning some new lighting and a new bathroom ceiling in her basement yet this spring and maybe this summer we'll be able to do new carpet down there for her. 

Full time work, full time grad school, training for a tri, taking care of our house, and helping our parents.  This isn't exactly what I thought my mid-thirties would look like but I confess it's pretty great!
