Hey guys, I hope everyone’s having a good week so far. Things here in Charleston have been pretty uneventful for me, but that’s not a bad thing.
I’m looking forward to this weekend since I don’t have a race to run or a cross country meet to coach, and I’ll be in town. I love racing and coaching, but I’m looking forward to running with my Believe/Achieve run club friends Saturday morning, going to the Mt. Pleasant Track Club pancake breakfast fundraiser (who doesn’t want pancakes after 10+ miles of running?), and spending time with the handsome husband.
I’ve been tired this week and sleeping in A LOT! Sleep feels so good, I think my body was a little deprived of it with how busy I’ve been in the past few weeks. I also think I need some rest to recover from my half marathon on Saturday.
To miss family and friends on your birthday. This was the first birthday in 3 years I didn’t celebrate with my ACS Technologies’ coworkers, and even though I got lots of happy birthdays and a sweet card, I really missed out on going to lunch with everyone and hanging out. Hopefully I get to visit my office soon. I’m thankful that I did get to celebrate with Clay and many of my other friends here, though.
To sleep in. Sure, people complain about oversleeping or say that it’s wasting the day, but sometimes it’s a sign from your body that you need a break.
To feel extremely proud of your cross country runners. A girl fell on the track a few nights ago, and it would’ve been a good excuse to sit out of the rest of practice, but she definitely jumped back in there on the next round and did awesome. That’s what being an athlete is all about! They did really awesome at the meet Saturday too (here is an article about it).
To feel a little jealous of your college’s student workers when you hear they get paid $8 an hour now. Then you remember even though you were only paid $6.50 an hour, you’ve been out of college for 5 years now (feelin’ old here…)
To stay off Facebook and other social media during presidential debates. Everyone complaining and ranting on there already knows who they’re voting for- they’re not watching the debate to pick a candidate. Sometimes I think social media can be a bad thing during elections- people totally disregard others’ feelings.
To feel guilty when you hide people on Facebook because of endless political (or college football!) banter. I guess I’ll miss out on their life events, fun posts, and prayer requests now, but oh well…
To not feel haunted houses and scary stuff for Halloween. The guys went to Boone Hall Fright Night Saturday night, but I was more than happy eating at Cracker Barrel and watching Chic Flicks with Nadine.
To shameless admit that your favorite Fall food is not pumpkin spice, but rather Count Chocula Cereal. Sorry I’m not sorry.
To miss your office’s cleaning crew. Too bad they won’t come to my home office in Charleston to empty my trash and vacuum my floor!
