Boy, the year is slipping away! Can't believe it's already mid November, with the holidays approaching. Been super busy at work, plus in the doldrums last week - one of my oldest kids friends from HS killed himself - with a new baby and young wife - he had been suffering from depression for quite a while, and apparently had a tumor on the pituitary, but it is just so sad and senseless. Did my swimming, but my heart just wasn't in it - my son, who was his friend, has what I thought was even MORE serious depression, so this hits home rather hard. Eric vehemently states he has no plans to hurt himself, but I'm sure his friend said the same thing. Life can be so hard, sometimes.
Anyway, sort of back in the swing of things this morning, went back to the gym & then to the pool, swam solo. Air temp dropped 25 degrees from yesterday's balmy, but humid 71 (at 5:30am) so it was a bit chilly on the pool deck!
