Today is Thursday. I haven’t run. I’m not sure if I’m going to. I just don’t want to & I have a dental appointment to get my teeth cleaned in a little while. Yesterday morning, I found my 3rd grader with the non-electrical, bulky can opener, trying to “open” her ADD med… ; ] Wow. I can’t get that image out of my head. You know, you go your whole life & then see something weird like that & it just stays with you! I never thought I wouldn’t see that ‘cuz I never considered it!!!!!!
I love organic stuff…no secret there. I must urge you to go to Vitacost.com and check it out. We use Deep Steep bubble bath cuz it’s organic. I buy a dozen bottles at a time because you can’t get it in town. It was so totally on sale this morning. I got 12 bottles (17 ounces each) and 8 bars of my favorite exfoliating mint soap (whose slogan is “no fake crap”) all for under $100.00, shipping included. I was so excited about it that I forgot to order shampoo for my girls. I’ll do that shortly.
Thursdays are pretty much the only day of the week I feel like “caving” as my hairdresser, fellow Capricorn, calls it – just staying in – I do love it. I thought I’d walk on the treadmill…some days I just don’t want to continually go past contruction workers/yard guys. I know they’re great; I see them most days. The weird factor lies with me. It’s just how I roll. I also watched Max & Ruby. Yes, it’s a cartoon! My girls used to watch it faithfully when they were 3-6. That’s why I watched it. It just reminded me so much of them and that sweet stage of not having homework yet, not dealing with head gear yet, or countless projects & index cards. I love having all those things in our lives. I know we are blessed to have them. But every once in a while, it’s just nice to step back & remember how things used to be.
So, I’m going to indulge in a second pot of coffee. I’m going to get myself ready and reflect God’s love every where I can. Then, before school lets out, I might re-visit the whole running thing again…sometimes running in that mid-afternoon sun, knowing I’ll soon be picking up kids, directing homework, laundry, dinner, bathtime, etc., makes me just want to get out there & grab a nice 30-40 minute run. If I do that, I don’t think I’ll have an I-Pod on. I think I’ll be craving the sounds of the ‘hood.
