I have to confess, the school issue that I last wrote about is consuming me. I have been laying awake at night going over the "what ifs". When I pick up the kids from school it is the only thing people are chatting about. I am certainly not alone in worry, wondering where our kids are going to go to school next year if our school changes and we are not able to go back.
Today I decided I am not going to worry anymore. It is not doing me any good, the frustration is causing my stomach to hurt and it is making depressed. Plus I have a tendency to be a bit OCD and with this issue on the front burner, I seem to be able to weave it into any conversation. (I would like to apologize to the cashier at Target for answering her "how are you question"). I do not have any control over the situation. I have done my part and will continue to do so but we all know that the school board will have the final say. My kids will get educated and that is all that matters. For all I know, things may not change for me and I am worrying for nothing. So I am chosing not to worry.
Seriously, I haven't run for awhile. I am in for a whole lot of punishment when I toe the line of that marathon on Sunday. Minimal training, anyone? The only way I will not finish is if I drop dead on the course (which Chubby Hubby is slightly fearful of this) or if the SAG wagon is on my ass. This is certainly not the way I wanted this race to go, but I am going to make the most of it and make it FUN!!!! I have been getting great words of wisdom and my favorite on was "Your body can do the race, it is just a matter of how much pain you want to put it through". Love it. I don't care if I am laid up for a month, I will finish.
|HER TOES, NOT MINE|
My girlfriend who is flying in on Wednesday, got a special marathon pedicure. BWAH! They are certainly festive! I told her my special marathon pedi was going to be all black toes so I could freak out all of the medics that I will probably encounter.
I am currently up WAY TOO LATE downloading songs from iTunes. I am making the mother of all marathon play lists. My music choices may have sunk to a new low because I have stolen a few of my kids favorites (**cough cough** Camp Rock and Phineas and Ferb???!!!). I am putting songs together that I know get me moving. I can't have just one genre.....I need to keep it fresh. Something needs to keep me going. Besides the tween music, I have some Billy Joel, Flo Rida, Rihanna, Kid Rock, ELO, Lady Gaga, and of course I added the Minnesota Rouser for good luck (although that song is not helping our Gopher football team). I am even tempted to splurge for a new iPod since my shuffle is hit or miss and I killed Chubby Hubby's iPod. I will have to post the entire list when I have it done....I am going to need 1000 songs to keep me amused for 6 hours.
Save the Cheese!
Speaking of music....my favorite Lounge Act is in trouble. He is a party favorite and I will be very sad if he hangs up recording. Oh yeah.....he has a spot on my playlist too. My fav is Baby Got Back.
A Note From the Cheese Himself.....
Dear Richard Cheese Fans:
I am sorry to say that I have bad news.
According to our accountant, unless we sell 2,500 more "OK Bartender" CDs, we won't have enough money to record any more music for you.
Please help by getting your friends to lounge against the machine with us at shop.richardcheese.com or iTunes, so we can fund the recording of more albums.
Getting new fans to support our band financially at shop.richardcheese.com and iTunes means more jobs, more wages, and more music for everyone.
Please do you what you can to help spread the cheese.
Other Life Stuff
Football, Dance, CCD, and Hockey. Goodbye life. I vowed I would never be one to have my kids' activities take over the calendar. I am eating those words.....they OWN the calendar. I am wondering what the hell happened to kid sports that only was one day a week??? I am not complaining (yet).
They enjoy it and it will make our winter fly by.
Thanks for reading my mind dump as I try not to lose it before Sunday!
