Love the one you're with

Lana and I took a trip to Ouray from Thursday night through Sunday morning. (Eli stayed with his Bubbe Sue.) Ouray was beautiful, as always. We stayed in a nice little condominium and didn't use the car one time the whole time we were there. We enjoyed a couple of days of great hiking. But, the best part of the trip was listening to Terrence Real's "The New Rules of Marriage" on the drive down and back and getting to strengthen our bond with each other. We continue to work on taking our marriage from being good to great / exceptional.

Well that wasn't too bad

I finally decided to take the plunge and migrate this site from Drupal 6. Five or so hours later and I'm creating my first post in my Drupal 8 version of this blog. I must say that I am quite pleased with the Migration utilities Drupal 8 provides.

As I was creating this post I did come across one hiccup with the tags taxonomy term entity reference that I quickly resolved.

I do hope that sometime soon I'll rebuild my custom theme.

2017 Week 10 Review

How the week went overall: It was good.

One thing that did not go according to plan: I did not create any videos for the Appendix section.

One thing that went well: I wrote the custom module and completed the slides for my OOP, Design Patterns and Drupal 8 presentation.

Plans for the coming week: Finish the Appendix section of "Mastering Drupal 8 Development."

Sunday Update

Yesterday I rode the stationary bike for a 30 minute strength workout. Today I ran 30 minutes on the treadmill doing a similar type of strength workout.

Today's update

I completed an interval bike / run combination on Wednesday. As planned, I rested yesterday. I did a Masters workout this morning.

Yesterday I was not exactly productive with my business. I suppose I accomplished some marketing (and maybe relationship building?). But, mostly I think I wasted a lot of time.

I'll reset myself and do better today.

I give thanks to the Universe for the abundance it provides me. I surrender and am open and ready to receive.

Ow, Ow, Ow

When I woke up this morning, I felt completely exhausted. I felt like somebody had been beating me up while I slept. My body hurt from my head down to my bottom. I don't know what (figuratively) hit me.

I had intended to do my workout today, but I've thought better of it. I think I need a break today. I'm bummed about missing a workout, but I think it's the smarter choice. Tomorrow is another day.

Busy day

I volunteered for National Public Land Day today in the morning. Then I worked on some of my gardening / landscaping projects while I waited for a friend to come over to help me start to put together Eli's new play set. We worked on the play set for about three hours until it started to get dark.

I've still got a good ways to go to finish putting together the set, so it looks like I'll be getting to work on that tomorrow morning and spending as much of the day as I can on it. Our goal is to have it ready for the break-the-fast gathering at our house next weekend.

I'm not sure what to say

I still had a bit of sore throat throughout the night and decided that I should probably see a doctor. When I woke up with an ear ache that sealed the deal.

I do have an ear infection and have been prescribed antibiotics. The doctor also encouraged me to let my body rest and just walk for exercise. When I reminded her that I had taken three weeks off (prior to resuming the workouts this past week), she said that I should at least consider doing truncated and / or fewer workouts each week for a while.
