Happy Hump Day Lovies! It’s been a whilePosted: 2012/03/21 Filed under: Adventures Leave a comment
Well hello there smart pretty girls and sweet handsome boys. I feel like it has been forever since I sat down to write something of substance. Several things are contributing to that and I have a few posts queued up in my head. For now I’d like to tie you over with some random ramblings and I truly hope to get to some actual writing very soon.
Friends– I had the BEST birthday party ever a few weeks ago. I combined as many of my disparate groups of friends as I could and just as I suspected, they all pretty much loved each other. Of COURSE they loved each other, they all are a part of my inner circle and I only let real, genuine, awesome people into that circle. I am also continuing to focus on meaningful relationships with the as many people in my life as I can reasonably get to and stay married and that takes effort and time.
Running- We run our half way run this Saturday, 7 miles.. 6 miles has been our long run distance for the last 3-4 and I swear it is my Kryptonite. I’ve been thinking about LOTS of things I want to say in some running posts. Foot is still holding up just fine in spite of the fact that I never did take that trip to see Dr. Hate. May 5th is quickly approaching and I have some optimistic goals that I’ll be able to hold my sub 12 pace throughout the rest of training and finish the 13.1 in under 2:45.
Health- I started doing a push-ups with some friends. We are following the 100 push ups program at http://hundredpushups.com/ I am sooooo weak, but getting stronger. Babu and I also recently decided to focus on taking some pounds off, because, really it is just plain stupid to spend so much time running and do minimal other things to change the composition of my body. Running alone isn’t going to get it done, modifications to my diet have to be made as well.
Garden- Weather here in Indiana is crazy. It has been in the 80’s 3 times this week. The spring bulbs are up, the grass is ready for its first mow. I already feel behind because my peas aren’t in yet, but all my beds are cleaned out and ready to go. I have new beds marked and plants on the way. As usual it is Spring and I have ambitious plans. I don’t know if this weather is a good thing or a bad thing. I keep waiting on the other shoe to drop in the form of an ice storm.
Family– MiniMe was recently screened for ADHD, and yep, she has it. There are all kinds of thoughts, emotions and things I need to do to further explore this and handle it with her and it is taking up a LOT of my mental and physical energy. I no longer want to cry when I think about it, right now I’m in beating myself up with guilt/Momma lion to get her what she needs as quickly as possible mode.
So as you can see I have a huge catch 22 going on here. Lots to process and write about, but having to balance the living of the life with the writing about the life I am living. I think a small part of me struggles with fear that since the AD story is over I won’t be able to continue my work of showing you all how wonderful you are and how much you should love and fearlessly be yourselves. I will overcome this. It is probably simply a matter of sitting down and just doing it, so today I bit that bullet and sat down and got these few random scattered thoughts out of my head and into this darn blog.
I feel better already, I think I will go back to initial basics. When I started this blog almost a year ago I committed to writing about 2x a week, so that is my return to basics goal. Don’t yet know what those posts hold other than the above mentioned topics, but I know if I simply make the time to sit down and start typing that the words will come. I hope you are enjoying the photo a day posts. I appreciate each and every one of you, no matter what crazy shit you search to end up here. Have a wonderful hump day!
