Exercise may take an unplanned backseat today. Being down a parent, early morning cable service call, and an early morning school rehearsal have all come together to a head.

  1. Yesterday was an unexpected miss due to appointment run over. Decided dinner and time with girls more important. And I am okay with that. Today we start again. Can’t wait.
