Not to be a big whiny baby, but WTH? It's snowing. In Southern Indiana. In April.
Not only did a big ole low pressure system come through & screw with my upbeat attitude, but I'm also in my mid-cycle hormone feel-like-sh!t zone. Yeah, I'm one fun gal to be around today.
So let's reminisce a moment to the weekend (queue flashback video & sound effects....).
Friday night was fun. Both the kids were healthy & spent the night with my mom. We saw Adventureland, which was super good & perfect for a date night. Saturday morning I slept until 8 a.m. It was a gorgeous day, one of the best of the year. I lazed around for a couple of hours & finally at 11:30 headed out for my 8 mile run.
It was by far NOT the best run ever. Actually, it was pretty hard. I didn't take water with me, & instead just circled back to the house after 4 miles and then after 7 miles, and I think not having water every mile was part of the problem. My garmin running watch said "battery low" after 3 miles, and I felt like it was a metaphor for how I felt. Garmy & I both made the entire 8 miles, but just barely. I did have moments of beauty on the run, where I felt great, but mostly I was just glad to have it over with. They can't all be winners.
I soaked in the tub for almost an hour afterwards (AH!). Then the usual Saturday chores commenced. Got the kids back around 5 p.m. It was nice to have a break but I missed the munchkins.
Sunday was beautiful again, at least during the morning. We were able to have our church Easter egg hunt & Palm Sunday church dinner. The kids had a blast. It was hard on Mark, though, missing his brother during a holiday. Keith would often come up while their mom was still alive & have Palm Sunday church dinner with us. Keith loved family events. So Mark was a bit melancholy.
The afternoon it rained & got cold. I could feel the low pressure system pushing me down as the day wore on, and I didn't do much of anything. Sunday afternoon always goes by too quickly.
This morning it was so weird putting on winter clothes & getting our coats back out. I packed work out clothes & am prepared for a cold outside run or a warm indoor run. If it's not snowing or raining, I'll run outside this afternoon. I'll hit the Y if it's wet out.
Sophie has her appointment in St Louis this Wednesday for her dizzy spells. We (she & I) are leaving at 4 a.m. That's going to be one special trick to get me up at 3 a.m.! Thank goodness for automatic coffee makers.
I may not be around much more until Thursday. Hopefully by then we'll have warmer weather again. And my upbeat mojo will have returned, too.
