Is it Thursday?

Do you know that I have been blogging for so long that I have actually used the title "Is it Thursday?" before? Most titles that I think are original to this day pop up as I type them, and this day was no exception. So on other Thursday mornings, I have sat at my computer and wondered - is it really Thursday already....and this week as on others, yes, it is.

The cup above is for my events with my running club. They provide water and gatorade every two miles, but no longer provide paper cups. So, they recommend you bring your own bottle, or purchase the handy-dandy device above. It has a little clip to go over your waist band, so you can wear it that way, or you can stuff it in your pocket - if it is empty. Then when you get to the water, you just fill it up, drink it, and away you go. Without wasting a bunch of paper cups. Cool.

I have a meeting this morning at work. I am chairing it. I have had such an overwhelming month at work that I don't know what I am supposed to be doing at this meeting this morning. I looked at my notes from the last meeting and it gives me no clue as to what we decided.... maybe nothing? This could be embarrassing. I need to be honest about not having a clear idea without spending an hour wasting people's time talking about nothing.

I better get to work so I can do the best job I can at getting some structure for this thing. I've already prayed, and now I am blogging, next I will spend a half hour on the treadmill (it is 27º outside), then the bathtub, and getting dressed, etc.... out the door... another day... Thank you God!

I think people love it when we're totally honest with them. Maybe it's because everyone identifies with our honesty.

Your post made me think of the premis behind the Seifeld Show. A show about nothing. Maybe it was a meeting about nothing. ?? That thought always provided me a giggle when I found myself in the same situation.

Sounds as if you are having a very busy morning. I know that something will come to you when you chair that meeting. Have a great day!

Well, you could always start it out "My name is Mary and I'm a..." - seems we usually fill up an hour after that...

Or, not.

Blessings and aloha...

I once admitted that I had messed up and didn't know what to do next in a very pressured production meeting and the sympathy I received was overwhelming. Honesty always works best.

I am happy to hear that the road runner/race walker group sounds like it is working out well.
