The Lighter Side

I started this post earlier in the week and got distracted.  Not a big surprise - my brain is ready to lie in a field somewhere and watch the clouds go by!  My students are pretty much done too, which makes it even harder to be excited about going to school.

After the last post, I decided I needed to lighten up.  So I have - weeding my flower beds, tossing stuff I don't need, trying to dig out my kitchen table.  I had a weed that was almost as tall as me - it wasn't too hard to get out!  I have some right around the base of a tree that are proving impossible - I'm definitely going to have to get help.  After two hours of working really hard, I have a full garbage bag, sore hands, and only one little mid-sized flower bed weeded.  But there are still weeds around the tree.  And I still have to finish going around the house... and around the other trees.  Baby steps at a time.

My bestest Megan gets married a week from today.  I'm in the wedding.  And I am EXCITED.  I get to take Friday off school to head down for the rehearsal, and I can't WAIT!  It's been almost two years since I last saw Megan, which is far too long.  I'm so excited for her and Patrick - they're ready to start the rest of their lives!

And you haven't seen an exercise log....  because there hasn't been any exercise.  Lost my voice the week of the musical, and walking across the room made me cough.  So running was out of the question due to vocal health.  The following week I ran on Wednesday.... and this past week, I tried to run Tuesday, only to discover it was WAY too painful.  See, my lawnmower attacked me last Saturday.... and the bruises are STILL coming up.  They're that awful.  There is a stump down in a hole, and I didn't know it.... found out the hard way.  And my knee met the dashboard of the lawnmower.  I'm thankful that walking no longer hurts, but running is too much impact.  Hopefully trying again in the morning.... we'll see!

Now that the weeding (for today) is finished, I'm pre-packing for Megan's wedding and unpacking some more of my house.  Do you get so excited for an event that you can't wait to pack?   Or is it worry that you will forget something vitally important?

Oh have a great time at the wedding! I'm also a girl who likes to pre-pack. I for sure think it is excitement:)

I think if I ever got to go anywhere, I'd be a pre-packer too! :-D
