Wasatch loop. Decided to relax and go slow. It was super windy and overcast, it’s supposed to rain yet again. It’s been raining all week. I guess it’s good because we’re no longer in a drought, but the runoff from the snow in the mountains is much more than normal and can be dangerous. My mom and I were talking about it and she said a lot of people have fallen into the rivers while hiking or getting too close to the edge and drowned. She said a couple years back a little girl had fallen in and two adults jumped in to save her but all three drowned. A young woman had fallen in and her boyfriend jumped in to save her, she survived but he drowned. And many more. So sad. 

Anyways, today it was suuuper windy and seemed to come from all directions. 8:00 average. Just below my knee has been bugging a little, I’m not sure what it is. I don’t think it’s my IT band being tight because it’s lower than it would normally be, but I don’t have a foam roller up in slc so idk. I’ll just be careful.

My daughter had a baby this morning. We left the hospital at 2:30am. Sometime between then and 7am when I got up it had rained here.

How does it feel? I don't know. I just feel fat lately. Haha! Anyway, this is my 2nd grandchild. My stepson fathered a child 4 years ago. Now he's broken up with the mother, but his son spends half the time with us and half the time with her. Well, probably more time with us. So, this is my first biological grandchild, not that it matters. But it's cool. Also, I made my daughter cry today. I was teasing her because she delivered 5 weeks early and I saw on the calendar that Monday she was supposed to have a pregnancy photo shoot. I told her she'd never get that one back and she started crying and now I feel like a jerk. :(
