Hit the gym this morning, since it was the last day Mom could get in her water aerobics before they shut down the pool for the rest of the week for annual maintenance (as Patty Nieman would sing, timing is everything). My non-aquatic workout was overdue after a day off anyway. Cuts into reviewing time, but now we’re on the case, feeling refreshed.
Oh, and ask Mom about her black eye. It’s a great conversation starter.
