I'm still here!

Just a quick note to let you know I'm still here!  As if I'd go very far!

I sort of lost my mojo the past few weeks due to duress of real life matters and the up and down weather has been a killer for me.  One day it is nice, the next it is cold and crappy and really, what's with this wind we've been having?  Brutal!  Running has been small distances but consistent  and cycling has been sporadic due to the weather and wind, I know, what a wimp.

Trying to find all the income tax information for my dad has been an adventure as well, let's just say I have one final bit of information to have filled out by his doctor and I believe the accountant will work his magic, but in the mean time, Tick Tock on the filing date.

Wonderful Easter

Speaking of dad, he is doing as well as can be expected.  His dementia is escalating so I'm trying to spend as much time as I can with him while he can still recognise me and while he can still enjoy doing some fun things.  He loves gardening so I think this is why I'm trying to hurry up the Canadian spring weather!

My new Saucony's are creating blister's, what's with that?  I've worn the Saucony brand for over ten years and never had a problem.  I'll try to switch up my socks, the way they are tied or figure out something before I write the company and ask for some suggestions.

I've also committed to riding the GrandFondo in July, I'm debating the Bring on the Bay, 3k swim also in July, I just need to find the time to hit the pool and get some serious swimming done.  September seems such a long way a way, but I have volunteered to be a ride guide again for this year's Ride the Rideau.  Cancer can be beaten!

Well, that's it for now.  I must get on line to stalk my friends who are running at Boston today.  One being a very good friend and considered my "Blog Daughter", Marlene at Mission to a(nother) Marathon.  Both Marlene and her husband Mark qualified for today's race!  Good Luck you two, have a great race and make some wonderful memories.

Taxes are a nigthmare just now in Italy. The Parliament changed the rules and imposed highest rate. Difficult to fill and ... difficult to survive after having paid.
Glad you spent a good Easter with dad.
