Well, my 10-hour workdays are coming to an end...For me it is a signal that summer is waning and we are looking at heading into fall! Fall is my absolute favorite season, so I am looking forward to cooler days and nights, football, the fireplace, kids returning to school and more! Unfortunately, in my neck of the woods, we can't really look forward to cooler days until around October! LOL But that doesn't mean I can't still look forward to it!
I am really going to miss my Fridays off and part of me wishes we could just continue working the 10 hour days for forever. But the other part of me is glad I won't be sitting at a desk 10 hours a day and will hopefully have some extra energy at the end of the day instead of getting home, eating dinner and crashing on the couch like an old fogey at 7:30ish! LOL Heck, my grandparents even managed to stay up past 8 PM so they could watch Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune...I wouldn't even make it through the whole Wheel show right now! That's just pretty darn sad! But I do always have to remind myself that unlike an old fart, I am up at 4:00 AM working my tail off! Not just sitting there watching the morning news waiting for my paper to hit the porch. :-)
So I am on the countdown...I just have to make it through today and then I can return to some semblance of normal on Monday! Woohoo!!
Tomorrow is the 20 minute run for C25K...it has been looming in my mind for the past 5.5 weeks and has reached almost mythical status in my brain. I can't wait for the challenge!! I think I'm ready for it!
