Re-started a light home workout routine and I'm getting ready to go out for my first run in a month. December was not kind -- bronchitis, tailbone injury, then the flu. One upside to the flu? Still down 6 of the 8 pounds I dropped Christmas week and I'm down overall. My next weightloss milestone is just 2 lbs away....

And on another note, I'm oddly enjoying my current (though temporary) schedule. I have enough time in the morning to have breakfast and lunch made for myself (and the kids), get in a light workout, and still get work done. "Lunch" has been around 8:00 a.m., in time to get the wee beasties on the bus.
Two unforseen upsides? No late night munchies -- I'm sacked out by 9:00 p.m. -- and extra time to work on things around the house.
We're going out for dinner tonight, and will be together the entire day on Saturday for my Christmas present. Doing college basketball and AHL games with a trip to a restaurant we both wanted to check out for a while in the middle, all out of town.
So I dunno. She's certainly not acting like she wants me gone based on our conversations and some of her actions since Saturday. I'm not being naive about it though; I've laid out how I feel and where I stand pretty clearly, and have asked for the same courtesy in return. There's a reasonably decent shot she just needs some time to figure some things out, but at this point I can't control anything but myself and how I feel.
Dinner went pretty well last night. Was almost perfectly normal, like nothing had changed, so that's a little encouraging. Felt weird just dropping her off at the end of the night, but for now it is what it is.
