62 miles

I purchased my Nike+ iPod thing a month ago, and just calculated how many miles I have run this month - I am thrilled to say that I have broken 60 miles! Yay for me! I just ran 4 miles this morning.

Yesterday at the gym, I was listening to a kinda dirrrty song by Christina Aguilera on my iPod and looked behind me and saw the Priest from my church! At the gym! And suddenly I felt very very naked in my little running shorts and little singlet with my little pink bra showing. Yikes! Then I am wondering - am I a big fat hypocrite? Or am I a many faceted woman? Or am I a case of arrested developement? It is too bizarre that I am going to be 55 in December - I sure don't act my age. Oh well. Better to act too young than too old I think. Although I could certainly be wrong.

I need to get my house clean this weekend because my sister is coming next weekend. I have a lot of work to do. I have a hair appointment at 10:00. I have a date tonight. In other words, I have no time. And I am sitting here, still haven't eaten breakfast, sweat dripping off my hair, need to mow the lawn, etc., etc., etc.

Life is very very good. I could get carried away with all of the above and think this is all a problem, but the truth is, none of this is a problem. It is having a full life, and all the stuff that goes along with it. It wasn't long ago I was worried about if I would ever see my kids again, or where I was going to lay my head that night. Now I have this huge problem of getting ready to go spend an afternoon getting my hair done! Poor Me! And wondering how I am going to mow my lawn and clean my house at the same time! Woe is me! And get ready to see a man who asked me to wear my stilleto heels with my new jeans tonight - oh yeah baby!

"Those adolescent urges that so many of us have for complete approval, utter security, and perfect romance - urges quite appropriate to age seventeen - prove to be an impossible way of life at forty-seven or fifty-seven." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 330

You don't act your age? Age is just a number ... From your blog/journal that I have been reading for a few weeks now, I know that you don't 'act'. You come across as real, and genuine, and you don't show your age, you show your heart and your spirit. You are yourself. You are an inspiration.

Have a fab time on those stilettos!

But I don't envy you the stiletto heels - I can't even walk in them sober!

I am so glad to have found your site. I always have to remind myself that days filled with appts, friends, cleaning, church, is not something to grumble about -- that it is a busy life but a full life.

I got a kick out of reading about the priest at the gym.
