When you get a chance, please click over to read a story written about John, which was featured in our local newspaper today. The reporters did a really good job…I was a little nervous because you just never know when it comes to that sort of thing, but they honored his life and we were all proud to read it. They even mentioned the blog in it!
This morning I got up around 7:45 (who am I?) and had a big bowl of oat bran for breakfast
This is a combo of 1/2 cup oat bran cooked in 1.5 cups water, a banana, cinnamon, sea salt, dried cranberries and raw almond butter. It cooked up HUGE and was almost a little too much! I think it was the extra half cup of water that I used….tons of volume!
I swam laps after I digested but for the first time I didn’t time myself so I have no idea how long I swam. I don’t think it was that long though…probably more like 15-20 minutes. It was all I could handle. After talking to my dad this morning, I have quit the YMCA and will be taking over my brother’s membership at the fancy shmancy health club here in town. It was actually quite funny because John never really worked out……he would just go and sit in the steam room then shower and come home. I always made fun of him for spending so much money to just sit in the steam room but he loved it so much. Well, his membership has now been handed down to me so I can sit in the steam room all I want. They have a very nice lap pool as well so I can continue my training there.
Lunch was actually quite delicious. I made an egg sandwich with 1 egg + 1 egg white with an ounce of 2 year old aged sharp cheddar and two slices of Ezekiel bread and had blueberries on the side—
I made my mom the same exact lunch and she loved it as well.
Unfortunately we all can’t get our tattoos until Wednesday. Apparently you have to make an appointment for such things and my mom really wants to go to this one guy that her yoga teacher swears by. I’m pretty disappointed since I was really hoping to share it with all of John’s friends after school today (its their last day of high school!) but I guess I’ll just have to wait. Instead, I forgot that I have my yearly eye exam and then we are starting grief counseling.
Ryan is gone until late tomorrow night now. He didn’t want to fish in his yearly Kingfish tournament this year but I made him do it because John would have LOVED to fish this with him. John loved hearing about Ryan’s fishing adventures and stole all of Ryan’s fishing shirts to wear around the house. Ryan changed the name of his team to “Team Johnny Weber” and all of his fishing teammates (partners? who knows) are wearing black wrist bands in remembrance. I know that John will be sitting on that boat with them all and let’s hope they catch the big one!
