From Saturday afternoon through the weekend I got lots of sleep since I was sick and in bed, so I had rest forced upon me.  It was probably good for my leg.  It really does feel pretty good this morning compared to how it had been feeling.

1 hour elliptical- felt great!

Hope all parts of you feel well.

Hey Rhett. We had like 30 guys in high priest group in my new ward. It was crazy!

From Rhett on Tue, Jun 01, 2010 at 17:28:39 from

Very cool Burt. Are they all over 80? You better watch out. They'll need a young guy to do all the work and call you to be the HP group leader. Did they think you went to the wrong room and try and send you down the hall to the Elders.

From Burt on Tue, Jun 01, 2010 at 17:43:32 from

Yep. They've got to be at least 80. The EQP lives just a few houses down. He came over the other day, and I thought for sure he was HP.

I've already signed up to do building security and building cleaning.

From Rhett on Tue, Jun 01, 2010 at 18:03:05 from

They're going to love you Burt.

Man Rhett I haven't checked your blog in a while. Sounds like you have been ailing a bit. Get better soon!!

From Smooth on Tue, Jun 01, 2010 at 20:00:45 from

sorry to hear you've been sick on top of everything else. On the positive note, you're getting the much needed rest and extra TLC to the mind and spirit.

From Kimmy on Tue, Jun 01, 2010 at 21:31:34 from

OK...this is off the subject, but can I just tell you I love the profile picture. You make running look easy!

From MrsFIT on Wed, Jun 02, 2010 at 13:51:33 from

Don't you just hate being sick!?! Hope you're feeling better :)
