I am thinking... about the senseless bombing at the Boston Marathon. I don’t CARE who did it; it ticks me off.
I am thankful... that my running coach did not run the Boston Marathon this year. She could have been injured.
In the kitchen... Food. :)
I am wearing... My Kyle Comfort 5k shirt and a pair of blue jean shorts (that I can finally fit back into).
I am creating... I’m actually knitting some baby booties instead of crocheting them. It takes 10 times as long, but hey, I need to keep my chops up.
I am going... to choir practice tonight.
I am wondering... about myself (again). I had Community Band practice last night and this is the absolute worst I’ve played since I joined. I’m so not gelling…I’m sucking…BIG TIME.
I am reading... Sunday School materials.
I am hoping... that someone can get the air fixed where I work out. I mentioned on my Facebook page that I nearly spontaneously combusted in the gym this past weekend. I got so hot that I had to stop, sit down, and cool off to keep from hurling (literally!!). At first, I thought it was so warm in the room because the "seasoned saints" had asked the air to be turned down (they always say they're cold). Then, I thought it was just me because I was wearing a t-shirt instead of something sleeveless. I went back Monday (in a tank top); more of the same, but I did finish. Yesterday (in a tank top), I got through 2 minutes of my usual 30 minute run and started feeling pukey and had to stop. I still thought it was me. Turns out from what the other patrons are saying, it isn’t just me. If they can’t (or won’t) fix it, may I suggest closing the blinds to the big windows during the day to keep the room cooler or SOMETING? Look, I love The Biggest Loser as much as the next person, but I’m not interested in joining the upchuck-your-way-to-fitness crowd. Sheesh!
I am looking forward to... seeing the movie Home Run this weekend. The last new movie I saw in the theater was Drum Line (and y'all know how long ago that was).
I am learning… how getting rid of clothes that are too big for me is a form of relapse prevention. It is also a form of trusting God to help me replace what I’m getting rid of.
Around the house... Putting laundry away and possibly cleaning the inside of my car.
I am pondering... on a big decision I’m trying to make.
A favorite quote for today... I have two today:
"For 24 years of my adult life, by choice I weighed well over 200 pounds. Now the reason I say 'by choice' is simply because I have never accidentally eaten anything." - Zig Ziglar
"I don't know what the ---- was going on with the Scottish education board in the 1970s. It was like: 'Do you like whiskey? Do you hate kids? The job's yours.'"- Craig Ferguson
(Geez, I wonder if these same people hired teachers in
One of my favorite things... almonds.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Choir practice Wednesday, stitch night at the yarn shop Thursday, WWF at CR Friday. Going to see the movie Homerun on Saturday.
A peek into my day... Keep me in your prayers. I've got some big things coming up (hopefully) and I want to make the right decisions.
UPDATE: They DID fix the air (Praise the Lord). Now, if they will just fix the toilets in the ladies' locker room....
