The Rockies have put us up in the Sheraton here in Tucson and if I'm going to have to live in a hotel here, this is the one I would choose. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the pool and workout room are definitely a bonus, and the view from our balcony is quite breathtaking.
This is the view from our balcony... looking to the right.
Looking straight ahead.
And looking to the left.
Sunsets over Mobile Bay will always be my favorite, but I'm definitely not complaining about Arizona sunsets.
This is looking out over Tucson. Please ignore that stupid speed limit sign :)
So you know how we're living in a hotel? Well it's KILLING me that I don't have a kitchen to cook in. As a matter of fact, the only kitchen appliance in the room is a little mini fridge... there's not even a microwave. But, I have brought my little bitty crockpot and an indoor grill/griddle. Don't worry, I'm going to
So we're trying to save money by not eating out for EVERY single meal- I mean there's only so much mexican food a girl can eat :) So here's what we came up with for supper last night.
A lemon pepper rotisserie chicken, caesar salad (in a bag), and gatorade. Oh, and Aaron ate a can of Beanie Weanies too but I didn't photograph that because it might make your stomachs turn.
Aren't we just glamorous?
So that was about our living conditions... now onto my better half. We were laughing one day after he worked out about the difference in his right arm and left arm. I told y'all he's been working out everything but!
I snapped this picture before we left and he has no idea I'm putting this on the blog. But if I were him I wouldn't mind because I think he looks pretty darn good despite his puny right arm! And the melon colored walls in the background really complement his skin tone! :)
His daily regimen consists of getting to the field by 7:45 every morning (which really isn't bad considering it feels like 9:45 to us) and he works with the trainer for about two hours strengthening and stretching his arm out through physical therapy exercises. After that, he works out for about 2 hours. And around 11:45 he calls me to come pick him up and we get to spend the rest of the day together. He really has it made because he doesn't have to dress out with the other guys and sit around at all the games. He just rehabs and works out with all the injured Big League guys.
The Rehab Coordinator for the Rockies evaluated him the first day and was very pleased with his progress. These next two weeks they will focus on getting his full range of motion back. The next month they will totally focus on strengthening his arm and back to get ready to start tossing in June. It means so much to have your prayers... I know they are working!
So there you have it... Now you have a mental picture in your head of where we are and what we're doing!
I'm going to do my best to keep y'all updated with where we go and what we do each week. So long for now!
