Oops, I Did It Again

It’s Tuesday!!  Ok, so maybe that was a little too big because there’s nothing really spectacular going on today.  But it was a nice greeting anyhow;-)

I didn’t sleep well at last night.  I’m not sure why, but I tossed and turned and stared at the ceiling all night long.  No big drama going on or anything, just one of those nights I guess.  Could be a side effect of menopause?  Probably.

August2010 022The boys ran cross country early this morning, so it was just Katie and I on the way to school.  She still LOVES first grade! 

After I got her settled and checked on the boys I headed out to my mom and dad’s to run on their treadmill.  Why?? 

Because mine died.  Again.

<insert funeral music here>

Yes, I have went through yet another treadmill.  This one, like the other, lasted 3 years.  She had a good life, I suppose.  I kept her company every day…although the majority of that time was spent sweating and thinking not nice things about her;-) 

So, until we get a new one I will be using my parents’ TM for my indoor runs.  Today was 7.3 miles in 1:10:00.  Awesome!August2010 025So…I’m going to pull myself out of treadmill mourning and grab some lunch and fold my mountain of laundry.  And try not to take a nap so maybe I WILL sleep tonight!

I won't tell what my treadmill said today! I just got off mine. We have had it for 8 yrs. I don't think it gets the use that yours does!! If you would say a prayer for me I would so appreciate it. I go tomorrow for my mammogram. It's been a year since my last one and a 1 1/2 yrs. since my last breast MRI. The tumor was found in July of 2007. I get disappointed in myself that I get anxious but the butterflies are already in my stomach. I know you understand. Thanks Ericka.
I started a blog at one time but never really got it going. Sometimes I think of trying it to journal my thoughts. What a keepsake to look back on. I am glad I found yours. You are such an inspiration and I love your great attitude.

Great run! I live for the day all of my kids will be in school and I can exercise during the day instead of before the sun comes up like I do now! Have a great day :)
