Is it Friday yet?

I’m so ready.

Life is just starting to wear on my a bit….juggling too many things, and all by myself as R is in the middle of golf season and never home.

T started preschool last week – yesterday was his 3rd day. He is still having trouble with what I call “the transfer point” where he literally leaves my hand and walks in to the classroom. The crying has gotten better (no crying on Day 1; about a minute on Day 2 and about 10 seconds yesterday) and he is super positive during and afterward….so I guess I am okay with it. With as much planning and contemplation as this preschool decision took, you would think I was helping him choose a college!

D is doing great – midterm came home yesterday with straight A’s. This Saturday he gets to go to the ASU game with his football coaches as a Scholar Athlete – for any CYF players that have a 3.5 GPA or better. As much as he makes me crazy at times, he makes me even more proud.

I am ready for FALL. Ready for cooler temperatures.

This morning I called to make our reservations for the Polar Express, only to find that all weekends in December are booked. :( And here I thought that calling in September was being EARLY. Pfffft. We are considering going the weekend before Thanksgiving, which isn’t what I wanted…but it is the best we can do. We’ll just get a super jump start on the Christmas season!

And, only 3 ½ weeks until Rocky Point! Have I mentioned that I could use a vacation?

60 days until Big Sur. Still haven’t gotten out to run again this week. Tonight should be a short run – 2-3 miles so I don’t feel like a slug. I still am not back in the groove.

For all my local runners out there, anyone ever consider THIS? I am signed up – via a friend that used to run with this group – for the RNR Half Training program. It starts on September 23rd. I am already nervous.

Hi Pokey,

I did really consider the program. I went to a run with Jeff Galloway a month ago and loved him. I took all the pics down already but you can read the post here:

I can tell you that all of the people there were so nice and helpful, I think you will really like it.

The reason I didn't join is because I didn't want to be locked in every Saturday am. Other then that it looked great!

I look forward to 2-3 mile SHORT runs. I've been reading your old journal and you've come a long way!
