- I’m always sort of weirded out when I am in a good mood. Normally I am status quo; just plugging away, getting kids to school, packing lunches, working, etc. But no, I just feel like I’m in a really good mood today. I’m also kind of a skeptic so I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.
- The kids went back to school after Spring Break today and I’m kind of glad. They always seem better when they’re on a schedule. Though I will say, they were exceptionally good yesterday. They were well-behaved in my office and when we went home, they played outside for a good long while. AND, after Isaac fell asleep on the couch, Elliot was proactive and decided to go clean up all the stuff they left out in the yard. Maybe he really IS nearing nine and starting to mature just ever so slightly.
- A couple weeks ago I made a list of stuff I need to get done and one of those was get a hair cut. Have I done it yet? Nope. I just cannot seem to make time!
- Oh, so Sunday is Easter. It also happens to be my birthday. My original plan was to go to the beach that day but the dice rollers – AKA weather folks – say it’s going to be cool and rainy. I really hope they’re wrong, as they so often are. I am due for some sun and sand.
OK, Tuesday Chat time!
This week’s prompt or question is:
“What’s New With You?“
Hmm, well, that’s a good question and one I had to actually think about. Let’s see…
Well, I have gone back to running and I guess the “new” part about it is how easily my body slipped back into it. Sure, the first couple runs were bad but after that, it became easier, more comfortable. I have been doing 2-3 miles during the week and four milers on Sunday. It doesn’t hurt that the weather has been decent for it and I got my new ipod so music definitely helps. Running in itself makes me feel all renewed.
I mentioned it yesterday but something new I’m looking forward to is the Def Leppard concert in May. I am super pumped because I don’t get to go to many shows anymore. I used to; I’d jump on any that came around and Ash and I ran the punk circuit for a while in our early 20s. But this should be pretty badass because I’ve been a longtime fan. I remember being about 13 and listening to Casey Kasem on Sunday mornings. I had my tape at the ready to record all the songs I really loved. I think that was the year Let’s Get Rocked came out and boy, was that a great song. It’s what prompted me to listen to their other stuff, most of which I had heard in passing. Either way, it should be fun!
Tangentially, I have been thinking a lot about battle jackets lately. It’s not a new concept but I have this idea that the people trying to revive the fashion statement are legendary. I really admire people who keep the past alive and if it means traditions are upheld, more power to them.
So on my docket today is to research whether people are still wearing these to shows and I have half a mind to get one. Hell, it might mean I become pretty handy with a needle and thread!
