Slow but got it done


Although I went to bed well after 1:00AM this morning, I was up before my 4:50 alarm set and I felt pretty good too. I'd plan and getting going and get a good long one in. No need for me to rush home to get the boys off to school, they are on holiday this week!! but I got side tracked. I started thinking about shoes, my $100 gift certificate to the sport shop I buy my running shoes. I spent about an hour looking for it!!!To make a long story short, I didn't go out for my run until about 5:45am. I ran for about 1:40mins just enough time to cool down and call my mom's house and ask her and my sister to check their bags for my gift card. I felt really guilty waking them up at 7:50 when they had nowhere to go today!!. I hope they forgive me and understand the state of mind I was in when I thought I'd lost my next pair of running shoes!!. My day was saved when I decided to take one more look in the storage compartment of my china cabinet in the dining room, all the smaller gift bags was there and of course one of them contained my green gift card!!!
My run was slow and clumsy it was pure determination that got me through. The work day was very long, about mid morning I was very tired. I took a lunch break and went to moms and had some homemade soup. I wanted my day to end there but I had to get back to work.

One foot in front of the other does the trick. Sorry you have to work over the holiday but someone has to keep the economy rolling along, right?

Dawn, next time just send your boss this email. He will understand.

Dear Boss,

I can't come into work today. I lost my f'en gift card for my new f'en running shoes. You don't f'en want me in there in this state of mind anyway, so be happy I spared you my wrath.
