When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire
The secret of life is that there is no secret of life. It's all hard work. Yet you still have to find the right works and be free to choose direction that is best for you.
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

The full weekend.
Managed not to fall asleep on the table with my face in sushi, although did scare the people around by consuming all plates before the rest of our party had a chance to pick chopsticks. Took/drove all to their homes, back at Monika's, watched movie "Elizabeth" with Stan and her, Google'd more history, turned to bed at 11pm.
6am wake up call for a ski trip - the 3 adults in the house (the kids didn't even move) set in the kitchen and looked at each other for 30 min...nah, back to bed.
8am wake up call - get Monika to her Pilates instruction classes, feed the boys, and with Stan, Stephen and Max make a trip to OMSI. Dino's! Awesome!
Back home (mine) to grab swimming things - took boys to the pool (at Community center we have a great one with slides and fountains). They spent there 2.5hrs. I tried to swim - I am really indifferent to water (in other words, I hate swimming) - went to the gym and did weights/stairmaster. Then set in the hot tub.
Back to the house (where we had people for a show) - snuck in and took dry clothes, fed kids at the Market, back at Monika's, played around, then we all went out for dinner. I didn't fall asleep yet again:)
This week is incredibly busy. Have to pack my stuff for the race in AZ, pack my stuff for the move to new house in a week, have to deal with bankers/loaners/insurances/blah...closing on my condo tomorrow. Oh, yeah, work got to fit somewhere there too! Stephen has a boxing tournament this weekend as well - lotsa practice to take him to. I ran 8M and felt good, but this morning had an ache enough to bag it after 30 min.
I bid goodbye. If you're local - enjoy this crazy weather spell. If not - be jealous:)
