I'm having issues with my home network. It works fine and anyone can come over to my house and connect their apple or android device and connect to my network. Once I turn on my work laptop and connect, it messes up the network for everybody and I have to reboot everything. Therefore I'm posting this entry as it is and will strive to write something more profound in 2015.
Today is the last day of 2014. It's been a long year, that is for
sure though it did seem to fly by especially once the twins arrived. I
don't really do New Year's Resolutions anymore. I just strive to be in a
better place each year than where I started, be it physically,
mentally, emotionally and/or spiritually.
to get some things accomplished this year such as dealing with the big
ugly hole in our backyard and selling my condo. We also squared away
the will and trust for our kids should something unfortunate happen to
Nightingale and myself.
We also lost our cat Maggie this summer to cancer. While I never expected her to grow up with our kids, I really wanted them to meet. I like to think that at night when one of them stirs, it is because Maggie's spirit has snugged up with them in their crib.
Update on Moose and Squirrel
I did an unscientific measure of their weight by stepping onto a scale without them and then with them and it appears that Boris is 15 lbs and Natasha is 11 lbs.
According to Daily Mile
I've run 374 miles this year. Even if I had the ability, I don't have
the time to get a marathon in to bring that up to an even 400. Last
year I ran 702 miles and coming off knee scoping and wedding planning I
managed 495 in 2011. The truth is I've run less this year because it
has been uncomfortable to run. And when you run less, you lose your
endurance in a hurry so that when you do go out for a run, you tend to
cut it back from what you set in your mind (5 miles) to what you can
reasonably do (3 miles).
I hope to get my knees looked
at again next year and see if the doctors can do anything to alleviate
the arthritic. If they can, I will try to beef up my running gradually
so that I can attempt a few of my favorite races like the Shamrock
Shuffle and the Portage Park Fall into Fitness 5K.
