This and That

This week, I feel like this...



Maybe you didn't get that metaphor. Here's another:



Still confused? Here's a likeness of me:



My bad, that doesn't look like me. This is a little closer:



My only hope comes from realizing that, on Friday afternoon, I get to be here doing this:



AAAAAAH, one solitary moment of bliss. Then....this:



All so I can arrive and work my butt off for a week here:



But...you know what's awesome? After that's done, I get to do this:



Along 13.1 miles of this:



And then I'll get to collect this:



Then, a party with close friends and family to celebrate. Could there BE a better way to cap off the busiest weeks of my professional year? I think not!

  Oh Leah,
Your a good communicator. I love it!!!

I hope you enjoy the other stuff, and keep your head together and heart engaged to the things you get to do to recharge.

Honestly, I can't believe what you've accomplished in this brief time. HA, HA, enjoyed the frustrated computer pic , cracking me up ( can you hear me ? )

You savor that run and massage.

I guess my now, my sister told you, she started running. I am guessing, it has only been 1 or 2 plus months. She is so darn jazzed about it ( that I posted on freecycle/ to find some running shoes without treading ). I don't have the $ to invest .

I got a response but have to see if the lady follows through because I was unable to pick them up last week. emoticon

    Lucky You! Austin is a great place to get outside and enjoy the day... whether you're near Town Lake (now known as Lady Bird Lake) that runs through downtown, or the various green spaces that wind through the canyons and hills of this beautiful city...

Hope you enjoy this little bit of Texas before returning to the frozen North!

    Good luck.
When we moved to the Austin area in 1985, the tallest building was the Sheraton by the river.
We do not live there anymore but do miss it.
Have a good day.

    Yes! While that deer may be looking at oncoming headlights, it is strong, it is beautiful, it is independent and it, too, can run very fast!
