OK, so I'm just off to bed and thought I’d do a quick post. What a busy weekend! There was some… er… tequila involved at A’s birthday celebration… as well as visits with Jen, Lee, Zoe, Dave and some new friends, too. The last load of laundry is in the dryer and there’s a Tex-Mex beef stew in the crock pot to cook overnight, so I have food for next week.
Next week… As I look down at my daytimer, I groan. Stupidly, hellishly busy. I am not teaching this semester and yet, I seem just as busy. How can that happen?
It’s not all bad… Tuesday night A. will get the second part of her birthday gift… An evening of Death by Chocolate at one of Calgary’s premier hotels, which puts on the weekly event, is included in there, along with a few lunches and coffees with friends I have been wanting to catch up with for weeks. Those are the moments of sanity to keep me balanced though the rest of the INsanity.
What about working out, you ask? Has it gone by the wayside? Not a chance! I’m just rolling out of bed about 6:00 a.m., to make it to the gym by 6:45 a.m. (or… OK, let’s be realistic… 7:00) just about every day next week. That’s the other bit that keeps me sane.
My knee is still not great. I tape it up when I do cardio and I’m still on a strengthening program for my legs. But, it’s coming along.
My workout goals for this month include being “detached from the outcome” of the knee… letting it heal on its own time, rather than on my (type-A, perfectionist) time… all in keeping with the theme for 2006 – “strong body, light soul”.
I’m also reading The Tao of Pooh. My brother-in-law lent me The Te of Piglet some years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I felt compelled to check out The Tao of Pooh and I’m glad I did… Just what I needed...
Pooh sits on my night table and I usually get in a few pages before bed. Speaking of which… I have a date with my pillow about now, so best I’d be off…
I’ll try to check in on other blogs soon… but if I don’t get to you, it’s not that I’m ignoring you! I’ll be there soon… promise!
