2. Well,I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree around here either. Like mother, like daughter. Yada....yada.... Yesterday about mid morning (baby) Carmen came to me while I was working on the computer, thrust the camera into my hands and announced "I made a video". I did noticed that she had disappeared upstairs for awhile and was awfully quiet. Not too unusual for her. She's the baby and
You might need to listen a few times to catch everything she says and disregard her mumble jumble handling of the camera. Unlike her momma she kept it really short & to the point. Otherwise, I see potential and a future for her ; )
3. So? Did you do anything special to "celebrate" 12-12-12? It almost didn't happen, but I did get in a 12.12 mile run. Let me tell you, it was NO rainbow & unicorn run where I easily glided along at a fast pace. I'd say at least 50% of the time it really sucked. I knew by mile 3 that it wasn't going to be pretty. I considered calling my daughter to come pick me up. This was right at the point where I was heading out into the country portion of my run. I just wasn't "feeling it" and my legs kind of ached. Not quite hurt, but something funky was going on with my legs & I'm pretty sure I heard them yell "STOP! Just stop and go home!" I'm not very good at listening to this voice and I kept going even though there was hills and wind coming at me with good force. Ugggggh! There seems to be some switch that once it's on I can't seem to turn off. When I say I'm going to run, I run. When I have a course in my mind that I'm going to complete I do it. Never mind the negative thoughts or how hard it is to keep going on. I just go.
On the plus side, I did get a nice chunk of my next audio book started. I've started listening to Les Miserables. I am a HUGE fan of the musical (even though I've never seen it in person) and I'm even more excited about the movie that is coming out. I get all excited and slightly out of controll when the topic comes up.....I CAN'T WAIT! (more on that in another post). I do remember trying to read the book in Jr. High, but it was overwhelming and I didn't get very far. Anyway, my run sucked, but I got it done! Yaaaay!
How are you like your mother?
Do you have a daughter that is just like you?
What did you do (running related or not) on 12-12-12?
