Training for 5/21/15

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 11:43 am

Yesterday was a pretty good day!

It started first thing in the morning, when Clark rolled out for work in the Crown Vic for the first time in weeks:

If you look closely, you can see the big grin on his face haha. There was some piece in the ignition that was messed up, that is supposed to prevent it from starting if it’s not in park, but Clark seems to have taken care of the problem. When you’ve got six vehicles, all of them better run, or it just looks trashy!

Anyway, I did some strength training upstairs for the second time this week, and then I took Pepper for an easy run around the 4.5-mile loop. It’s cooled off a lot since earlier this week, so, no dog puke this time.

I had to pay my insurance premium yesterday, which inspired me to finally find out if my car’s busted-out passenger side fog light is covered. I just assumed it wasn’t because fog lights aren’t essential, and while my car’s are actual Honda parts, Clark and I installed them. But it turns out it is covered! So that’s getting replaced at no charge to me once the body shop I chose gets the part. Might as well get something for what I’m paying for insurance.

Finally, in the evening, I went to my little sister’s induction ceremony into the medical lab research honor society at Salisbury University. Her entire 13-member class was inducted, and they’re graduating today. Every single one of them has a job lined up — I can’t think of another major with a success rate like that! Julie will start in the lab in the Easton hospital two weeks from today.

This kid was in second grade when I graduated from high school, and now she’s a college grad starting a professional career. Time flies! No matter how much she grows up though, she’ll always be Creature Child in my heart… and in my phone contacts haha.

  1. Congratulations to Julie!! Apparently Paige ate some Chapstick while at Allisons last week and I just said “Julie ate tubes of Chapstick and turned out fine so I’m sure there’s no damage” lol

    • Haha! We were just talking about that last night! I showed Julie the new coconut-flavored ChapStick I’d just bought and she said I wouldn’t have had to worry about that one because she doesn’t like coconut haha. She’s the only person I know who graduated from college having never gotten less than an ‘A’ in her life, so maybe it’s a mark of exceptional intelligence!
