Found this funny little cartoon on facebook. It made me giggle. Ain't that the truth, huh?
For the first time in forever my kids had school. It's a little controversial in our town about this happening. It's kind of a long story having to do with our teachers & their contract, etc. etc. I very much love & support our teachers in our town. I am friends with a lot of them. However, I am seeing this day as another day that is getting us closer to getting out earlier in May or June. It is suppose to be May next year. I can't remember the last time we EVER got done with school in May. EVER. Including when I was in school. So if we have to sacrifice this day, then so be it. I don't care. Make my kids go to school! Get it done & over with.
Not what I meant to ramble on about. Actually, I don't know what I want to ramble about today. It's been a frustrating day. Earlier I had an ear full to tell you. I still do. I just don't think I have the creative writing bend to make it sound all great & magical. I think I'm too hard on myself when it comes to my writing. A little of a perfectionist. Me? Perfect? Haha, I'm the furthest thing from that. Sorry, rabbit trail again.
So let me tell you where I am running wise. I skipped today. Had to teach a cardio class at 6 a.m. Meant to go run this afternoon, but a certain Postal employee was not working today (yeah, that's right you didn't get any mail delivered today) and my day revolved around him. So my afternoon run was nixed. I will run per usual tomorrow morning. I keep wanting to BE running at 4:30 a.m. but I fiddle around too much in the morning and can never seem to get going until 4:55 or 5. (Slacker....I know!) I'll try again tomorrow. Getting an early start will allow me to run farther than 4 miles, plus I like to be done & back to the Y by 5:30 when it opens so I can squeeze in some weights before I have to teach at 6. Having such a tight schedule keep me on the ball or failing miserably. I'm often a combination of both.
My leg is still bothering me. I know exactly where the problem is, I just don't know why it's all flared up & mad at me. What did I ever do to my poor little body? Oh, wait...don't answer that. Ok, what have I done recently? I've been good. Just going for 4 - 7 miles run 4 - 5 days week. That's all! Yes, I have an innocent look on my face right now with a big ? looming above my head.
We'll see how my run goes tomorrow. I want a good long run to clear my head. Get my thoughts together to tell you what I want. And to have some good prayer time with my Lord. That is when I really enjoy my runs, when I accomplish those things within a run. When I just get to be myself : )
