I swear this has been the longest week known to man. I’ve been super busy AND in a less than stellar mood. Not great.
1. Today I was going to take a “me day”. This whole year of me thing has been a bust so far. I constantly feel like I’m falling behind on stuff. Of course, some of that is normal fall busy stuff. I complain every year about September and October and then things calm down. Not sure exactly why I thought this year would be different. Oh yeah, two kids in school should equal free time, right? Anyways, I was going to go to the gym, read a book, chill out, maybe do a little baking, maybe sort some of my business paper work. Instead, Jones was home sick from school. Sigh.
2. I didn’t run yesterday because work ended up sucking up my kid free time (they get out early on Wednesdays). By the time I had the opportunity to run, I wasn’t in the mood and we had “Back to School” night last night, so showering was pretty high on the list of things I needed to do. I figured skipping that in order to run would not really win me any friends at the school. So, I needed to run today. Because of Jones, I had some constraints. I could have hit the treadmill, but that seems to aggravate my calf. So, I ran a quarter mile away from my house and then back, so that I could check on Jones every 5 minutes. Talk about a boring run (and my achilles is not down with speedwork, so it was also a slow run.) Oh well, I got the miles in.
3. And since I can’t think of anything happy to say ;o), I’ll just announce the winner of the socks.
Suz and Allan! When you guys finish fighting over who gets them ;o), shoot me an email at mom2shoo at gmail.com.
If anyone is running the Clarendon Days 5K/10K race this weekend, I’ll be working packet pickup tomorrow from 10-3ish and then I’ll be at day of registration on Saturday. Stop by and say hi!
