Well it is kind of cool dark and dreary at the moment. The weather man says it should get up to about 77 today and partly cloudy. If so, I may take another bike ride today. Yesterday I had enormous amounts of energy, I have no idea why... I haven't been sleeping well and had a terribly draining emotional day Saturday that was an incredible waste of energy and time.
So yesterday I was asked to help out down at the local restaurant, because they had some large parties and needed a hand, so I went down and stayed relatively busy for the 3 hours I was there. I felt light on my feet, no fatigue and just zipped around like I used to when I was in my 20's. My head was clear and I actually enjoyed what I was doing.
When I got home, I found d/s out sitting at his computer having some sort of meltdown, because some bad guy stole $14,000 out of his account on some computer game and there was no way to get it back (this is all virtual, and not in real life, so a meltdown is not merited). I figured enough is enough and I grabbed the kid and said lets hop on our bikes and hit the nature trail. Well it was kind of cool. I still had lots of energy left and I actually stayed well ahead of the boy hehehe (Mom, wait for meeeee!) My final triumph was when we came to the hardest part of the trail and it is a brutal hill that just wears you out and I am determined to make it to the top and I just kept pedaling as I past some skinny gal who was huffing and puffing as she WALKED her bike up the hill... lol. I wanted to yell out, EAT MY DUST TWIGGY!!!! hehehe. I am sorry I know that isn't very nice but it is how I felt at that moment.:evil:
Anyhow I am pretty sure the diet is making me feel so good and giving me all this terrific energy. I am thrilled to find that I could wrap my apron string around my waist twice and I had to, to keep my pants up lol.
So anywho, in about 20 minutes I am taking the kids to their first day of college for kids. They are very excited to go. I had visions of myself lounging around my pool and relaxing while they were gone for the next several days between 9 and 4, but the weather isn't cooperating today darn it. So what to do? I am sure I will figure it out.
Due to circumstances beyond my control I didn't get half of my work done yesterday so today the other half needs to get done. That is mow the lawn and do the trimming.
I also need to get to the bank today and deposit my winnings from the Liberty cruise. I did well for once and we returned with more money than we left with. That includes paying for the excursions, tips and other cash expenses. Not bad. I know that means I'll lose all my gambling money in the first day on the next cruise.
I hope all of you have a great week and an enjoyable Monday.
Mike (Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to mow I go)

A late good morning. Have cheer Donna, it'll stop some time. It's overcast here again, but should burn off around noon.
We stayed up late and watched the Tony Award show. Wow, that was longer than the Oscars! I really enjoyed it, though, especially the production number from "Anything Goes."
We went to the final play of the South Coast Repertory season. Keith managed to get through the play without coughing. He's far from over the pneumonia, but is much, much better. No gym today, however.
Wonder of wonders, it is only in the low 80's today in Virginia Beach. What a beautiful respite from the hot weather! After going to the gym, Rob and I went to the Sports Authority so he could get a good pair of walking shoes for our upcoming trip to Palm Springs in July. Then, it was on to Moes for a quick lunch. Rob is fast asleep; he has Mersa on his leg and the atibiotic makes him awfully tired. I am just relaxing before I have to go to work. We have to wait until December until our next cruise; ugh!!!
