Wednesday's Wrandom Wrambling

10 more days.  That's all I can think about.  10 more days............

I'm back.  I mean really back!  I have been in the worst slump, funk, depresson, whatever you call it for several weeks.  Couldn't get myself out of bed to the gym.  I just didn't even care.  Something happened over the weekend.  I don't know what, but my mojo is back.  This morning I did a tri.  300 meters in the pool, 13 miles on the bike and ended with a 5k. It felt amazingly good.  I am better when I am being true to myself.  And being true to myself is being a gym rat.  An athlete.  A competitor.
Yeah, it feels good.

The last of the snow melted from my northfacing front yard.  That makes me so happy.  And even though it's cold and more snow is predicted, I know that it won't be sticking.  It's late enough in the season now, it leaves as quickly as it comes.  And that pleases me immensley.  The only thing that would make me even happier is if it snowed and was nasty here in UT, the week I am in Cancun.  It would give me a sick sense of self-satisfaction.

I like to watch Rachel Ray on Wednesday's.  I don't know how much watching I actually do, but it's on in the background while I work.  Her recipes always look so good until the end.  At the end she dumps ALL KINDS OF CHEESE ALL OVER IT!  It doesn't matter what she is making, there is cheese involved.  I am considering writing her a strongly worded letter.  Give me recipes that don't require cheese as a basic ingredient.  Oh who am I kidding?  I wouldn't cook them anyway.  I am fundamentally opposed to cooking.

Speaking of strongly worded letters.  I am composing one to Chili's.  Stay tuned.

I am totally craving Cafe Rio.  (fist shaking in anger)

Instead on the menu for tonight is tostada's.  Not appealing.

Sissy is getting so FUN!  Her vocabulary is growing, her sense of humor and her style of play is, well in a word - cute.  Everything darn thing about her is cute.  She is so fun to have around.  Come Monday nights, we are already missing her.

Parent Teacher conferences tonight and tomorrow night.  Tuffy assures me we have nothing to worry about.  A couple of more months and the kid will be graduating.  That makes me giddy with excitement.

Speaking of giddy...did I mention only 10 more days?

Welcome back Mojo! I think that a little vacation and having spring just around the corner bodes well for your mojo sticking around.

By the way...I am eating Cafe Rio at my desk as I type this. Don't hate.

Connor was begging for it to snow while we were there. He managed to play in the last little pile that hadn't melted in my Mom's yard. Poor snow neglected child.

I love it when they're Sissy's age. So stinking fun.

Okay, here's the deal. You keep the exercise, I'll keep Twilight and everyone will be happy...

I am glad you are feeling more you! I wonder if it's the rays you've been getting?

I so want to go to somewhere warm again. Enjoy it for me!

if yesterday's post was 10 then today is 9. I am glad that you are out of your slump. I think the vitamin D your body has been getting, even if it is fake, is helping.
