Living the Good Life

Right now I'm sitting in a custom designed, multi-million dollar house with its own lap pool, spa, gorgeous wordwork everywhere, and beautiful artwork. Ed is housesitting for his Phd advisor and I got to tag along. This is going to be like a mini vacation for us, as we'll be staying here together until I leave for winter break. I'll be taking lots of pictures in the morning when its sunny out, as apparently there are beautiful panoramic views of the bay from the deck :)

Classes have ended, all my papers are turned in, and I have just two more days with my little first graders. Another quarter is completely finished, finally! It looks like next quarter I'll be in a fourth grade classroom , which I'm looking forward to.

On the running side of things, I did 5 miles thursday, saturday, and yesterday (tuesday) which I was happy about. My leg is still being weird, but I finally made myself an appointment at the doctors :D. It's just a normal doctor, so I don't think they'll really be able to help that much, but hopefully they can recommend me to a sports doc (and then my insurance will cover it too :) ) Hopefully I'll finally get this fixed! I'm going to try for another 5 tomorrow as well.

It's been beautiful (but cold!!) here in Santa Cruz, and I took some great photos after my run on thursday, which I'll post as soon as I can :)

Hope everyone is having a lovely week!

You're back!

Glad you're enjoying your house sitting. I used to do a lot of that, too.

Let us know what the deal with your leg is!

Enjoy your last couple of day with the kids! It's exam week for us, so we are wrapping up things here. Good job with the running - I hope you get things figured out soon. I'm finally feeling normal - two months after the 50K!

Sorry to hear about the leg but that place sounds awesome. It's own lap pool! Is it heated?:) Have a great time and I hope the leg thing is resolved soon.

Enjoy your break! You've worked hard. I'm sure your 1st graders were sad to see you go.

And I hope you get some answers about your leg. Hang in there! : )

Clearly, you are living well, Addy! Wow, that sounds like an awesome place.

I hope your leg is improving, and that you will be back to normal with your running! :)
