Too many balls in the air!

I feel like I’m juggling frantically and SOMETHING’S going to drop! It’s mostly good stuff, and some stuff that has the potential to be freaking phenomenal, honestly, but – augh! I need to sprout another arm or two to handle it all. Apropos of nothing, my dad gave us some rewards points he had accumulated, …

Quick question!

Madison, Wisconsin, folks! If I happened to be there for a visit, where would you recommend for good running? Not sure whether it would be a long run or shorter, but I can do loops.

Round and round in the circle game

I enter into another week, meat-free. Eric has actually been eating fish during the past week, and he did have his allotted single “splurge” night, when he met with a friend and had chicken, but I haven’t felt the need since the first day, when I finished up some tuna I had open in the …

WtRS Episode 5: A Bird in the Hand?

In running, as in life, the unfamiliar is somehow more intimidating than the known. Thanks to Ted (You Don’t Have to Run Alone), Christa, and Chris for their contributions. Music on the show comes from the Podsafe Music Network. Tracks used were: 42 shades of grey – State Unsteady Ockum’s Razor – Fear of the …

Okay, I’m “turned around”

Sometimes, it’s the out-of-the-blue things that make it all okay again, more so than anything you could plan. For me, it was yesterday morning, when I happened to come across a quite strange sighting for my next podcast episode (which, with any luck, I’ll get to upload by tonight). 😉 I’m still bummed about Eric …

How quickly can you turn around?

My mood can change on a dime, most of the time. It doesn’t take much to swing me from happy to sad or back again, most of the time, but I think that’s because of a tendency to stay fairly centered; if my emotions are a pendulum, I’ll swing back and forth, but for the …

This weekend is going to be nuts!

Okay, so check it out. It’s Palm Sunday, which means that our church choir is doing its cantata on Sunday for both services (I guess Easter Sunday’s service is packed too full to accommodate it? I never asked), with dress rehearsal Saturday morning. Saturday night is also when Gabe’s preschool is doing a movie night, …

Meatless

Eric’s been struggling with diabetes issues lately. To make a long and complicated story short, the things he’s been trying aren’t working very well anymore, and something has to change. The paths remaining to him are starting to shrink in number, unfortunately. I was commiserating with him this morning; it’s about all I can do …

Still stuffed from “lunch”

I’ve mentioned it before, but every year, our church’s youth have a Dessert Derby. It is the only fundraising they do…and that’s because they don’t need to do more. It’s just that effective. People buy tickets (for both the main Derby or for the Kids’ Derby held concurrently; there’s also nursery care provided), and that …

So tired

I just want to go to sleep. I’ve been up since 4 AM, and I didn’t really sleep well before that (woke up every 30-60 minutes for most of the night), and then had a long run through the snow. My body is demanding that I put it to bed, but I can’t yet, because …
