catching up

Friday, May 30, 2014

hi everyone! been away this week--rob was on vacation so we have been working like mad around here. he has really been busting his rump to help me get ready for opening day--not everything will be done, but a lot of it is. took it easy this week--after you run a race you are supposed to rest or take easy exercise for the same number of days as miles in the race. today I am planning to go to an easy 3 miles--did two on wed.
of course we cant seem to make it through a week without a parental explosion and this week was no different. this is a big one and its going to take awhile to get it all worked out. just need to keep sparking a little bit, stay focused with my running and let the rest of the chips fall where they may.
I am a big time anticipator--I try to solve problems before they happen--but in my parents case it hasn't been working out too well--I take responsibility before the fact, and then I blame myself after the fact. so I am trying to pull back a little and let the issue lead me rather than the other way round. hopefully it will help. for now we are in a "wait and see" mode.
gardens are starting to color up and its a beautiful morning! have a lovely Friday!

    I'm sorry to hear about the parental issue. I hope your new way of handling their issues helps.

    Aww..I'm sorry to hear that things haven't calmed down on the parent front. I hope whatever it is gets straightened out sooner, rather than later.

    Spring takes it's time getting here, but once it's here, it comes at you fast and furious, doesn't it? My azaleas are just about done, and the old climbing rose is blooming, with a lot more buds on it. I bet your gardens are going to be stunning this year!!

    Have a good weekend!
