Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Finally Friday

And I'm going to start having a couple of memes on Friday. To start, just the one but I hope to add Fitness Friday/Real Life stuff too. Friday 56 will be first so you can skip the other stuff if you want to. ;-)

The Friday 56
hosted at Freda's Voice

#Friday56

Rules:
  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
  • Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
  • Post it.
  • Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.





The tall man said, "The way of the world is to bargain. But we're not buying camels. So our answer is simple." 

The messenger inclined his head again, and turned it a little, as if presenting his ear.

The tall man said, "Tell the American we will pay his price."

Night School by Lee Child
 - just started so I haven't read 56 yet plus it's the end of the chapter.
Maybe if I tell it's a Jack Reacher novel this will make more sense ;-)

edit: whoa, on page 22 is says that the American wants one hundred million!

~*~*~
I'm not even sure what week I need to tell you about. The week after the cruise? Laundry, some cleaning, didn't make my mileage goals.

I started this week less than a 5k (3.1 miles) away from my next hundred mile goal. Husband was going out of town so I figured I could knock out the 5k on the first day and get two more in on the next two days.

Except, I didn't go Monday. Then Tuesday morning I waited until after he left and my knee hurt a bit. No bigger. I'll take it easy today and be right as rain tomorrow.

Nope. Wednesday saw me hobbling around and in more pain.

Thursday I was still hobbling but I got a dinner invitation from my MIL so I went. My SIL and a niece were there too! Then a trip to the library and Target before heading home. Gosh, I even went to bed before Midnight! Husband made it home okay.

I woke up in tears sometime Friday morning and couldn't get comfortable. It was the potty stop that did me in. The 90 degree angle had me wanting to scream.

Son was up so he took me to ER. The Doc was able to rule out some stuff, including any kind of crack/break after xrays. I've got crutches, a knee brace and pain meds O_o plus an appointment with orthopedic in December.

My planned December break may happen sooner because of pain. Or not at all because I can't walk around!

Have a great week!

I'm intrigued by the setting and such. Sounds like it might be a good read. Happy weekend!
