I am now blogging for myself. My class is done, however, I have enjoyed the blogging experience so much, I”m going to try to keep it up.
This weekend was a busy one! Faith had a BB Tourney all day Saturday in Hinckley (2.5 hrs away). The girls, my mom, and I went Friday night and stayed in a hotel. It was a nice time. Saturday’s first game was at 10:20. They played their last game at 6:00. It was a long day, but it went really pretty fast.
Sunday, I know I needed to get a long run in to prepare for my 1/2 marathon next Sunday. I was fortunate enough to find a good friend to go along with me. That helped so much, but I still struggeled with the run. Not so much in my muscles, but in my head. Running is such a mental sport and if you aren’t in the right mindset, it takes some of the enjoyment away. But, I was able to get in close to 12.5 miles and I feel so much better having done that. I used to love to run by myself, but I’m finding that for longer distances, it sure helps to have someone there with you, pushing you along the way.
Now that we finally have nice weather, I decided I wanted to take a shot at grlling tonight. I had a friend show me how to start the grill and it seemed pretty easy. I’m happy to report, that I grilled my first meal tonight and even timed the sides to be done at the same time as the meat. I was pretty proud of myself. But, the happiness was short lived…my girls were less than thrilled about eating a griled supper tonight and their lack of excitement quickly dampened my mood. But, they did feel bad for it and hung out long enough to help me clean up the kitchen. It was a good reminder that just becaue something is a big deal to me, to someone else, it’s nothing at all. I need to celebrate my accomplishments for me and not worry about others. We all have our accomplishments and they are all important, just different to each person. If you are going to do something, be sure to do it for you and not for anybody else.
