    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    • I have one uncle that is a year younger than me, another uncle 3 years older, an aunt that is only six years older, and another 3 aunts/uncles less than 10 years older than me.. My father was the oldest of 12.

      • Eh, that's different. I meant no offense to families like yours. My mother's youngest aunt was 3 years younger than her, so I have no room to talk. I just was referring to the creepy ones where your momma's also your aunt's also your cousin.

        • 1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants.
          23 hr IF
          Dinner: 3 slices pepperoni pizza, 1 slice of a failed attempt at an egg crust pizza, and some chocolate cake and chocolate blue bell ice cream. This was planned, though. My niece turned 6 and she's within the splurge zone for birthdays. NO MORE WHEAT! My stomach is threatening to revolt. I'll pass on glutinous products until September (my father in law's birthday.) I feel pretty gnarly.
          Drinks: 2x 20 oz Body + mind tea, 40 oz water.
          2. Move around a lot at a slow pace.

          Aimlessly wandering around the in- laws' house.

          3. Lift heavy things.

          sledgehammer 14 min

          4. Run really fast every once in a while.
          nuh- uh

          5. Get lots of sleep.
          6.5 hrs

          6. Play.
          a little with my niece, but nothing physical.

          7. Get some sunlight everyday:
          Rained most of the day (3/4 in when the average yearly rainfall is 13- 15")

          8. Avoid trauma.

          Almost flooded out the city pick- up while driving around examining drainage.

          9. Avoid poisonous things.
          Accounted for and expected, but yes. And I may not eat any of my cake for my FIL's birthday.

          10. Use your mind
          Plenty, too tired to to say here. More drainage complaints, more field examination ("yep. It's a field."), more design work.

          • 1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants.
            Lunch: Chinese buffet: 5 slices sushi, 1.5 hard cooked egg, 6 shrimp, broccoli w/ cheese, 1 grilled chicken strip on stick, 1 oz flan (quiet, you, I haven't had it in 17 years), 1/4 pineapple, and some sort of octopus/ mollusk stir fry in a soy free sauce (couldn't taste the salt anyways.)
            Dinner: Chili's: 3/4 bowl chili, 1 romine/ tomato/ cuke salad w/ 1 tbsp vinegar.
            Drinks: Tea. Lots of tea
            2. Move around a lot at a slow pace.

            Shopping+ drainage complaints+sprint breathers= 3.5 hrs

            3. Lift heavy things.

            sledgehammer 14 min

            4. Run really fast every once in a while.
            Did sprint intervals for 15 min. Sprint half a lap, walk 3/4, repeat to equal 3 laps sprinting (~ 1/4 mile sprinted)
            5. Get lots of sleep.
            6.5 hrs

            6. Play.
            Went to a school playground. All the gates were locked. Who the HELL locks up a playground?! There's an entrance that's a not a gate, which is how I got in. Fooled around on the monkey bars and swings and slides for half an hour. Almost did a full pull up.

            7. Get some sunlight everyday:
            Cloudy all day. Was outside for an hour or so, but no sun.

            8. Avoid trauma.
            Managed to ford my car across several road rivers, so trauma averted.

            9. Avoid poisonous things.
            No soy, 1/8 c cooked sushi rice, no other poisons.

            10. Use your mind
            More drainage complaints, more field examination ("Yep, you're flooded. And the city can't fix your problem because it's caused by what's on your lot. You fix it."), more topo work.

                  It's REALLY hard to think through a migraine. I mean really, REALLY hard. Especially a food intolerance headache. I slept with a pack of frozen raspberries on my head most of the morning,and laid in a cool living room most of the rest of the day. It's a pretty nasty headache when it takes excedrin, migraine meds, and an ice pack to dull it enough to sleep. Stupid MSG and/ or soy...

                  • Weenie drainage complaint of the week:
                    Guy calls in with a tree limb blocking the alley and a small pond blocking his access to the alley. Transportation removes a branch maybe 3 feet long and 1/4" wide at it's largest diameter (one a 10 year would've had no trouble picking up and playing with.) The "small pond"? My Toyota Corolla doesn't even notice it's there. Maybe 1/4" deep by 2.5' in diameter. Weenie.
                    Illegal drainage complaint:
                    Local Whole Foods wanna be (Nothing fresh except a half fridge or sorry looking produce) draining to an unpaved alley when their site permit and drainage plan doesn't mention it. Big no-no. That's gonna be an interesting solution.
                    I was taken off the topo work (thank the gods, I was getting tired of fighting with Civil 3D to get rid of spikes in elevation that aren't there) and put on "replicate this old set of plans in CAD" duty. Boring as hell, but at least I'm contributing more to the project now.
                    It's rained 4 days straight now. we've gotten 3" in the past 4 days. In a place with an average yearly rainfall of 15". To say the area's confused is putting it mildly. It's already been a year for above average precipitation anyways. I think we may break record rainfall this year.
                    The migraine from hell is gone. HUZZAH! I can think and participate now! Now to add to my list of no- eat foods: Soy (I was being a bit lax on this, eat a couple tbsp every few weeks), MSG (rules out several restaurants), grains & legumes(duh), heavily processed oils, uncooked cruciferous veggies... Damn, I didn't realize there was that much for me to avoid. It'll be hell to avoid my raw broccoli and strawberries, but I'll make it work.
                    My summer appetite is definitely here, even if summer isn't (our high is only supposed to be 80*F.) 18- 24 hr IFs have become somewhat the norm now. I think I'm inadvertently doing the Warrior diet.
                    I think I may buy some fabric and replicate my favorite button down shirts from Express, rather than pay the $40- 50 they want. They fit PERFECTLY, and I need more colors.

                    • YAY that the migraine is gone!!!

                      It's amazing how much better life is, when your head is not exploding. And kudos for finding your triggers
                      And it's so cool that you have the skills to replicate your favorite shirts. You're gonna save SO much money, get exactly what you want, and they're going to be SO much better-constructed.

                      YOU ROCK!!!

                      • Back from the mart of Wal. Desperately wanting to stranglemurderdecapitate redneck and wetback sonsuvbitches. grumblesnarlgrumble. Now I remember why I don't go there: everybody and their dog for 3 counties and half a state goes to this walmart. I'm not joking about half the state. For most of eastern New Mexico, my Walmart is the closest one.
                        Oh well
                        1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants.
                        Lunch: Salad: spring mix, chix breast, yellow bell, cuke, grape tom, feta and sundried tomato, almond, sunflower seeds, walnut cranberry raisin mix, HB egg, olive oil, balsamic; tomato basil soup
                        Dinner: known safe Mongolian stirfry: shrimp, beef, chicken, bell pepper, jalapeno, garlic stir fry, peaches, pineapple, and tapioca pudding
                        Drink: green tea x 30 oz, water, iced tea x20 oz
                        Supplements: magnesium/ zinc, b vitamin complex, vitamin D, 1/2 calcium, fish oil
                        2. Move around a lot at a slow pace.
                        Tromping around Walmart for over an hour hunting for Lava soap (among other things) and hating the general human population more and more. Tromped around Michael's for hunting for decent tracing paper roll for pattern making. I got a half size that I'll have to tape together, but it'll suffice.

                        3. Lift heavy things.
                        Nope

                        4. Run really fast every once in a while.
                        I'm sore, but I sprinted from Walmart to my car because it rained cats and dogs during that time.

                        5. Get lots of sleep.
                        8 hrs

                        6. Play.
                        Not today.

                        7. Get some sunlight everyday:
                        Rained most of the day (.1 in worth of drizzle)

                        8. Avoid trauma.

                        So far so good.

                        9. Avoid poisonous things.
                        Sure, unless you count sugar.

                        10. Use your mind
                        See posts from today, in addition to pattern making without taking apart the blouse (that's going to be interesting...)

                          1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants.

                          Dinner: 1 lb rib eye, 6 garlic butter shrimp, house salad (romaine, HB egg, tomato, cheddar, radicchio) w/ balsamic vinegar (couldn't ID the oil, so I passed), sweet potato with butter, french fries with melted cheddar.
                          Drink: iced tea x20 oz, chai w/ HWC
                          Supplements: vitamin D, fish oil
                          2. Move around a lot at a slow pace.
                          Not enough to count

                          3. Lift heavy things.
                          None

                          4. Run really fast every once in a while.

                          15 hrs

                          6. Play.
                          LANned Dawn of War. Wasn't physical play, but getting one of his friends to do anything physical is like pulling teeth.

                          8. Avoid trauma.

                          Indeed.

                          9. Avoid poisonous things.
                          Matter of fact.

                          10. Use your mind
                          Not enough to count. I was foggy headed the entire day. Something to do with the weather, because my husband had it as well. Searched some online for a black leather blazer, didn't anything I'd be willing to pay exorbitant amounts of money for. For the record, it becomes exorbitant amounts of money over $40 US. I'm cheap like that, but it's served me well so far.

                              1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants.

                              Dinner: 2 hambuger patties, 2 slices cheddar, 1/4 c chili on top of the burgers, 4 slices grilled pineapple, 1 sugar cookie (I don't know why I keep trying to treat/ poison myself like this. I keep forgetting that it'll taste like sweetened sawdust. I keep using the rationalization of "I deserve a treat" and then realize that it'snot tasty enough to be a treat and reach for a piece of chocolate or fruit.), 2 paleo chip cookies (made 'em at my in- laws. Still trying to convince them on board. I may be half way there) and 2 paleo raisin cookies.
                              Drink: iced tea x16 oz, water x 30 oz.
                              Supplements: vitamin D 5K, fish oil 1 g, mg/ zinc, b vit, selenium
                              2. Move around a lot at a slow pace.
                              Went to the mall, got several clearance bargains that fit without adjustment, walked 2 mi at a park w/ SIL and MIL.

                              3. Lift heavy things.
                              None

                              4. Run really fast every once in a while.
                              Sprinted away after lighting several firecrackers

                              5. Get lots of sleep.
                              8 hrs (I need to read the Gokhale side sleeping techniques. I can do it for my back easily enough, but can't ge my side to do it. Wondering if the bed may be too soft.)

                              6. Play.
                              Fireworks, played frisbee with a way too light frisbee. I need to get a heavier disc. The dollar HEB special doesn't cut it with even a hint of a breeze. Eh. At least I got the neighbor kids moving too. I also got to play with their dogs, which was uber relaxing. We still need to get ours, but that involves makes our back fence higher and our back gate better. Border collies, Huskies, and their mixes can JUMP!

                              7. Get some sunlight everyday:
                              Only partly cloudy, was outside from 3-1730 and 1900- 2000. Took my full complement of vitamin D.

                              8. Avoid trauma.

                              Define trauma. I had a cinder from a sparkler fall on my arm and leave a couple of nice round burns. It hurt like hell for 5 min, but I don't think it'll take more than a few days to heal.

                              9. Avoid poisonous things.
                              That damn tasteless cookie and smoke from the fireworks
