April Showers!

Say they bring May flowers...  The weather in Indy is beautiful these days.  Spring has sprung!  I should be in an a good mood on overdrive.  But I'm in a rut and feel as if I've dug myself into a hole...not sure how to climb out.  Lots to do and I'm not sure where to start.  April is jam pakced: I'm planning a baby shower, my oldest son is being confirmed, and my youngest son is making his first communion.  Sprinkle in a few birthdays and top it off with THE MINI on May 5th -  sends my head spinning.  The Mini is 5 weeks away and my running has stalled.  I can trace the start of my demise back to my struggling performance at a 10K training session about a month ago.  This race was my first lone performance - and my time was way off from where it was a year before. My running partner, my sister, is pregnant.  So the race was lonely and I might have been okay if I were better prepared or more realistic about my finishing time.  But here I am in a running rut, shifting my focus from finishing the mini in a solid 2 hours to just finishing...that does not sit well with me...but it will have to do.  Stay tuned.

Starting My Blog

So I've decided to start blogging...I'm not sure why, or even who would ever be interested, but nonetheless; here I am...a thought occurred to me recently...once you pass, where does one go to memorialize you as a person?  Facebook? I hope not...that seems kind of discounted in a way.

My late paternal grandmother, Dolly, liked to write in the local city newspaper from time to time.  I wish I had a compilation of her pieces.  It really does not matter what they were about.  Maybe that is what this will turn out to be; a collection of who I am saved for my children, and the generations that follow them...

I'm not an English major nor did "hooked on phonics" work for me, but that isn't what it is about...

I'm really into movtivational & inspirational things, like quotes and if I share nothing else but those from time to time, so be it.  My fav quote that I read today was:

Today you are you,
that is truer than true,
There is no one alive
Who is Youer than You.
--Dr. Suess
