Slowly crawling out from under my rock

So I am still working on getting healthy again following this crappy illness, but I felt well enough to do a bike ride tonight. It has been days since I last worked out, but I really don't feel bad because I was so, so sick. I have a bit of a cough and raspy throat right now, on top of the sinus pain, which is finally subsiding.

Yesterday I went to the Apple Harvest Festival with Kara and my new mommy/biology class friend Kristen and her kids. We left Matty and Tim home because Matty was under the weather. We had a really good time!! We sampled apples and cider, took a hayride through the town and the kids played in a bounce house. Good times. I think I will go back next year.

I think Kristen and I will get the kids together again before Tim, the kids and I head out on vacation Oct. 20. It is so nice to have a friend who is my age and has similar interests!! It's been a long, long time since I've had a "girlfriend." LOL!!

Today's stats:
Bike:
Distance: 10.15 miles
Time: don't know, as I had to stop 1/2 way through and get Kara a book (she's supposed to be in bed asleep!!)

Ha ha, when I first read it I thought you were talking about riding outdoors, and I wondered "How the hell did she go get a book? How did Kara find her to let her know, especially since she was supposed to be in bed?" It's good that you took a couple of days off, really. I'm as guilty as anyone of trying to exercise through a cold, and it never helps. Funny how I rarely remember for the next time, though.

YAY for Mommy friends! Sounds like a great day!

LMAO at the sidenote. Ahhhhhhhh kids. Sometimes Keira will be up playing her darn piano while she's supposed to be in bed sleeping *sigh*

Ah I get so frustrated when Isaac does that. That is why I gave up on aerobic videos a long time ago.

I'm glad you had a good time and I really hope your new friend turns into a great one! Everyone needs a good buddy to pal around with!

Hope you're feeling better!
