I'm not completely sure if I can nail down my mood at this point. I'm a little grumpy. I've been running from place to place, all bug-eyed, like my hair is on fire, with a schedule that is just a little insane and requires me to be in two or three places at once. I'm tired, in a good way, and am really pleased with my workouts. I'm in transition, and anxious for life to settle down into a manic routine. It is the same song that I've been singing for weeks. So you know what I said about last week? Ditto for this one. It is like Groundhog Day. I keep expecting to wake up in the morning to Sonny and Cher singing "I've Got You Babe".
School starts next week for both of my kids. My daughter begins high school (o_O), my son starts his 7th grade year. My duties as the Treasurer for Home and School crank up for the second year of my two year commitment. Football every night, a new horse schedule (yet to be figured out), 5:30am cross country practices, and...haha! Get this! Jury duty on Tuesday. Couldn't have picked a shittier time, but whatcha gonna do? I am working myself up to be the biggest bigoted bitch of all time, and pray they don't choose me for a trial. I'm told that bigoted bitchiness isn't enough to be excused, but I'm going to give it my best shot. The (only) upside is undisturbed reading time.
So who is tired of the campaign crap? I'm tired of it already. It is going to be a looooong 2 1/2 months. Florida is one of those states that after an election year, all that remains is a bloody, corpse and sign-strewn battlefield. Just had to get THAT off my chest.
Reading schmeading. Blogging schmogging. If you notice one day that it seems I have dropped off the face of the earth? Worry not, I'm not dead. I've only melted into a gelatinous mass of pooh. You know, I try, I really do, but that isn't good enough. I did finish Marybeth Whalen's "The Guest Book" and it was lovely and comforting. I am now rolling around in the last three editions of the graphic novel formats of "The Stand". So much indulgent fun! It isn't exactly the same as King's Magnum Opus, but it is good stuff. I also just did finish "The Discovery of Witches" on audio (it took me awhile, but I liked it) and am now listening to the subtly impactful "The Snow Child". I don't run with my audios, I have running partners or I listen to music, so...who knows how long it will take me to get through this one. There is always house-cleaning and weed-pulling! Woo hoo!
So today, I'm going for a nice chunky run with my husband, go to church, flip a coin to see who goes to horseback riding lessons, then send my daughter off for driving instruction with a more sturdy, saner person than my husband and I. (It is a true and good friend who does such a thing.) Pray, my Christian soldiers. Hope you all have a peaceful, non-eventful Sunday!
