At the race yesterday I came in 4th place in my age group. I cannot begin to say how much that thrills me. If only... I hadn't stopped to tie my shoe, I hadn't stopped to pick up my drivers license which fell out of my pocket, and I hadn't stopped for a sip of water... perhaps I would have won a prize! Which is not to negate the glory of 4th place. I think it is wonderful.
I got a call from my son last night. I was glad to hear from him, but worried too. It was 5:00 a.m. there and he was just getting off work. He said he had worked for 11 hours. I guess I would sound tired too after 11 hours of working. But flying at night in a hostile land must make you extremely tired. And it makes his mother tired too, just thinking about it.
I am looking forward to going to work today. I am beginning two huge projects and I love a big fat challenge. I am looking forward to getting to a meeting tonight. I haven't been to a meeting all weekend and I really need to go be with people like me.
