Not only are we back, but it totally wasn’t any where NEAR our fault. Although, it WAS a strange and odd sort of freak-of-nature type of deal. Because, ya know: us.
Where to begin? Well, I won’t. But I will say that there was no melt-down, no gnashing of teeth, and really not much stress-eating either. So? Could’ve been worse. Didn’t cost money we did not have, and no one died. Back to business.
Some gyming happened, we saw some good* movies, had a sammich, and got to visit with in-town kids for a festive meal. Today, I went to the pool and Dan went to work. No epiphanies but I’m quite pleased with how both of us handled the potential for stress. We rolled with it, and moved on past.
*I’m always pleased when our limited selection of film viewing doesn’t suck. I know someone is going to ask, so this is what we saw: Black Swan, We Bought A Zoo, and Moonrise Kingdom. (The last one was the best. Yes, J3, totally my kind of movie!)
The Universe sent us a message to show how it’s all meant to be this way, challenges as well as blessings.
“The Spiral Dancer ~ 5 ~
circuitous route, perception
The Spiral Dancer moves with her own rhythm and steps to music only she can hear. She takes you on a path that is winding and circular. She assures you that what you’re experiencing as a setback is really part of an upward spiral.
Perception is everything: you are not retracing your steps or going backward, but rather around and up. She says that you can be comforted, knowing that your path is one of success, adventure, and experience. Follow her, for she dances along a magical way.
If you are asking about relationships, keep dancing and magic will soon happen. Also, it’s okay to allow someone else to take the lead at this time. Make sure to let others know that you are open. Always remember that relationships are mirrors and will show you the past, the present, and the potential future.
All relationships have a destiny. Each is a sacred teacher with valuable lessons to share, even if it appears that the two of you are dancing in different directions. All the steps are prefect, even when you may seem to be stumbling.
The Spiral Dancer is a reminder that destiny’s path is seldom straight.”
The minute I saw this one I was thrilled with her appearance. She was the perfect validation. Also, her number is a Five. My favorite part of this message is when she speaks of that spiraling upward movement. We never go back, we always make progress. Even if it’s wobblingly crooked and zigzaggy.

ended up being just a wander with the Grand Dog, but look, you can see it HERE. (Yeah, these fancy phone programs are pretty damn entertaining.)
turned out to be a ride under overcast skies, but we were never soaking wet; downtown and back, it looked like THIS on a map. My numbers show us going 9.331 miles in 59 minutes, 37 seconds, with an average speed of 9.3 MPH.
was only pool class numbers, 3.886 with an average speed of 9.4 MPH with pedaling time of 24 minutes and 49 seconds.
