Going back to work today after a week and a half. I am glad. I have truly enjoyed my vacation, but I know I need to have some structure in my life and work provides that. Last week I had exactly one chore I wanted to get done (get the oil changed in my car) and I didn't do it until Saturday!
I managed to run 3 miles this morning which felt terrific. I may be ready for the triathlon in time after all. Yesterday I had a great bike ride. Tomorrow I will try to do both.
Last night we had another movie night. We watched "Freaky Friday" (I think my son might really really like Lindsay Lohan). Surprisingly, I really liked that movie too! It is really fun to watch youthful movies with my kids.
I was feeling so morbid yesterday morning - the mood lifted yesterday afternoon. You would think it would become habit after all these years to know just what to do, but in my case, it doesn't always just come. I finally realized that I needed to pick up the phone and call my sponsee and a couple of other folks who might need some cheering. So I did that. I also finished knitting a pair of socks for my sponsee - she really wanted this pair of socks I have been knitting. And, voile! when I turned my thoughts to others, I felt fine.
