Wednesday Night Sappiness


You know, writing about being content and happy is pretty boring. Particularly when it is several days in a row. I tried writing about a tradition again tonight, but I just can't do it right now.

Today was a wonderful day. I went for a run at daybreak. The bad thing about doing that? You don't really have a feel for what kind of day it is. So, I headed out in a running skirt and a short sleeved shirt - as a bit of a concession to the coolish weather we have been having. Normally I would run in a singlet... anyway. About a mile and a half out, it started raining. I looked over the mountains to the west, and saw the black clouds, and heard the thunder. It was in the low 50ºs, which isn't very cold unless you are soaking wet. I probably ran a bit faster than normal, it was a little bit unnerving, and uncomfortable. But it was good.

When I got to work, I put my head down and started working on something that has caused me to go into therapy. Seriously, I have seen my psychologist about this, and will be doing some very specific therapy next month so that perhaps I can deal with this issue as it comes up. For now, I really have to just suck it up and work on this even though I feel like running from my office every time I pick it up. Listening to my iPod - Monks chanting, does help.

At noon, I started working on a drawing to be used in a training. I worked on it all afternoon! It was great! It was fun! And the folks who asked me to do it were very very pleased with the final result. What a nice break from my normal work.

I am now on my sofa, writing this. I just got off the phone with my sponsor. She was happy to hear that I am coming to visit her next week. I am getting more and more excited about my vacation next week.

OK, now I am going to bed. It is 50º and raining outside. This weather is wack! But it is super good sleeping weather.

Nighty-Night. Thank you Heavenly Father for another day of life.

I had to reread "running skirt." I have never seen a running skirt.. how can that be. Like a tennis skirt?
It sounds sexy!

I actually dreamed last night that it was so cool outside that we could actually go for a walk. But woke up. It will be over 90 today with 100% humidity. Thunderstorms will roll in later in the afternoon. I think I want to live where you live. Your blog is a good description of the highs and lows of a day at work. It's good, it's bad, then mercifully everyone gets to go home for the night.

50 degrees? Beautiful! I would kill for 50 degree weather right now. Yesterday when I got in my car it said that it was 105. Give me 50 degrees and rainy any day over 105! Have a great Thursday!

I'm with Lou...running skirt? Do your panties show when you jump over a log or something?
I like boring.
Bliss and Boring are synonymous at times.

I haven't had a report send me into therapy. And I'm hoping that I won't have that happen in the remaining 9 months before retirement. It seems though that my tolerance for BS seems to be higher since Al-Anon. I seem to not be bothered by things at work like I used to. Maybe it's the light at the end of the tunnel...

I like your "contented" articles. It gives me hope.

I look forward to other articles as well - I think they will give me wisdom, willingness and strength.

I think that's part of why we do this...

Many thanx...

Blessings and aloha...
