Friday Thoughts

With all my rants and bitching lately about how I am “struggling” to fit it ALL in… I saw something on one of my favorite DIY blogs, Wobisobi that made me stop and think.

 My #firstworldproblems struggle can be adjusted accordingly by changing my prospective.  Maybe I should start making MY list….

How ’bout you???

Rest day….Like it or Not

Oh Friday…how I LOVE thee!! I’ve been looking for you all week! Not like I have anything super exciting planned but it’s a LONG weekend….LABOR DAY WEEKEND, Baby!!!

IMG_4158.JPGHaving Monday off (actual Labor Day) means the WORLD to us working folks/parents! One more day to get stuff done and prepare for the week! The weekends go so fast, that by the time you look up…it’s Monday! #damn

I fully intended to meet my girlfriend, Leslie, for a run around the lake after work.

I usually take Friday off, but I took full advantage of the idea of:
A. Catching up
B. Getting in an unplanned run
C. Doing something BEFORE I pick up the kids!!

But guess what??? Mother Nature had a different plan. NO, not THAT!!!😉. About an hour before it’s time to leave work….the sky started to become and black…and them it.was.ON!! Rain like NO business came falling out of the sky!! #typicalFLORIDA

It didn’t let up about 1 1/2 hours!! So….NO run!!! #weatherFAIL
I was pissed!!! But I got over it…picked up the kiddos….went home and relaxed!

My plan is to run in the morning, and get myself back on track for possible 10k before the end of the year. I am still in training for my triathlon in October, so this will help!!

So, I thank Mother Nature for the I unscheduled rest day today. I probably needed it more than I would like to admit…..

How was your Friday?
Any plans for Labor Day weekend?

PS….College Football is BACK!! And my Gators are playing tomorrow! Excited isn’t the word….

And we are getting ready to….



I didn’t think the day would EVER come! Friday….a working woman’s dream word because no work for two days! Friday…a mother’s scary word because you have to do work for two more days!!

I decided to have a “quickie” before picking up the boys. And by quickie, I mean I squeezed in a run. #dirtyminds #thinkALIKE
It was a quickie because it was only 2.5 miles.

My view was PERFECT and I would have like to have gone further but I couldn’t :
A. I had to get J and A at a decent time from after care at school. It’s bad enough they are there until 5 pm EVERY DAY!!
B. My calves and shins weren’t happy yesterday. I need new running shoes and because I have taken an, unbeknownst to me, mental holiday lately…I forgot! Guess I’ll remember now….

Rest tomorrow and then run on Sunday. J is in his running club at school and already up to 2 miles. But what makes me OVER THE MOON is that he wants to run a 5k and has expressed an interest to do it drumroll PUH-LEEZE….with MOI!! 👊😃👍

Enjoy your weekend!!!
