<p>No work for me today, yippeee!!! I am planning on taking Zoe running with my running group this morning, but I really do not want to wake her. We'd have to leave by 7:30-ish. We shall see. She slept well last night, so I do not want to spoil it, LOL. Should be really nice weather today with a high of 78!</p>

<p>Good Morning.  Had a nice night of sleep...finally.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The sun is just about to crest the horizon, it is 47F out there right now.  I will most likely go for a shortish (6mile) run within the next hour.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great run, Meri.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great weekend in B-town, HJ and family.</p>

<p>tired, sorta hungry, headachy, sorta dehydrated, grumpy</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Porty Adventures:</p>
<p>went to bed with no supper, and being somewhat dehydrated cuz I spent three hours yesterday eve hanging out in the ER and hospital opthamology clinics~~~></p>
<p> </p>
<p>All throughout the day yesterday I had a large number of the classic retinal tear symptoms.. Kinda freaky. No, not a migraine.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>At 4pm, I consulted my primary doc who said that the clinic was closing soon, and that urgent care didn't have an opthamologist on staff, so she sent me to UW hospital ER.</p>
<p>OY!</p>
<p>I'm not dead yet! Not even in pain, or hurt, or sick!</p>
<p>I didn't want to go; but "better to be safe than sorry"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Loads of waiting, several docs testing for things like STROKES..gak..., finally escorted up to the optha wing.</p>
<p>Many drops and bajillions of test later, he said I was 'fine'</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have PVD in both eyes, pretty wild case in the right eye, and need to keep an eye on it <snort> because my severe myopic eyeball is more likely to develop a retinal separation.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>PVD=  Posterior Vitreous Detachment <go ahead, google it, and read all about it></p>

<p>todd,</p>
<p>shortish? SHORTISH? for the portymum, 6 miles is epic <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
<p>In fact, if I find the mojo today, I'm hoping for 6-7 on the TM during any one of the numerous college football games this afternoon</p>

<p> </p>
<p>{{{porty}}}}  I didn't google it, but everytime I go to the eye dr.  I am told that my vision is so bad that I am an excellent candidate for my eyeballs falling out or something.</p>

<p>Good morning folks!</p>
<p>I'm back in Havana after being away for a couple of months.</p>
<p>Yesterday I finally managed to drag myself out for an almost 3 mile run.</p>
<p>It felt good but the time off has only made me lazy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's good to back with you folks at PRT!</p>

<p>Good Morning,</p>
<p>  I woke up with my cranky pantses on this morning for some reason.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am feeling a little better now. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have had breakfast, cleaned the kitchen, put on a purdue t-shirt, hung up my Purdue flag outside, took of my purdue shirt since it is to warm for a tee already and now I have the Big Ten Network playing in the background.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>later.</p>
<p> </p>

<p>we old farts gotta keep a heads-up on our health, eh?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had no idea that I would be going in for something so potentially serious....just thought my doc would pre-approve me for a visit to an opthamologist <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""><br>

<p>eric,</p>
<p>Good job on the chores!</p>
<p>I've cleaned the rat's cage, both bathrooms, and have done three loads of laundry.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll hop on the TM at 11ish and watch any football game that happens to be on.</p>
<p>they're bound to be better than huntin', fishin', and cartoons</p>

<p>Gilberto!  Welcome back.  I was thinking your dial-up finally gave up on you.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Porty!  Skeery.  I could have written altoids post.  Many years ago a doc told me not to go on bumper cars or play impact sports to reduce the chance of my retina detaching.  Yikes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good morning everyon else.  It's a gorgeous day here.  I went out for a tougher-than-it-should-have-been 6 mile run, and then enjoyed pancakes and coffee.  A nice start to the day!</p>

<p>OMG! Porty! Glad you lived to tell us about it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Zoe and I had a GREAT time! It was so nice to see my running group. I ran with them twice since getting pregnant, so do the math, it is 23 months! I hung out for almost an hour with everyone. And of course everyone said Zoe was the awesomest!</p>

<p>Today's weather is FABULOUS!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Going on a road trip with my 2 younger kids to pick up a chinchilla (finally).  The last deal fell through because the person my son was trying to buy from was too far away.  I finally found one that was up for adoption (the person who bought it turned out to be allergic to chinchillas).</p>

<p>Dear Torque and all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had a pretty interesting summer.  I spent most of June in Puerto Rico giving some retreats to a group of nuns.  Then at the end of June I went to Paris to translate at a meeting of my religious order with representatives from all over the world.  That was fun, but a lot of hard work.  When the delegates to the meeting were free, the translators had to work on documents and reports.</p>
<p>Finally I spent a month with my family back in Mississippi.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's good to get back into the swing of things here in Cuba.</p>
<p>BTW, Torque, thanks so much for the running shoes.  They are great!</p>
