Winter Doldrums

I don't know about you but after all the Holiday Hoopla, we are struggling to keep up. Work is as busy as ever. Now that my son is well into his threes, I am finding that he needs the balance of independent play with interactive play. The trick is figuring out which one he needs before he does.

I have started training for a 10K with a mom's running group. I am hoping to stay away from the injuries, so I can actually finish it this time. I missed our first group run because my husband brought home a nasty cold bug, and he keeps trying to share it with me. Only have a sore throat now but the 20 degree weather kept me inside this morning. Gotta hit the treadmill this afternoon to make it up. On a positive note, my husband also signed up to run the 10K. He was in triathlete shape when we met, but has desperately fallen to the wayside over the last 10 years. I am glad to see him do something in the right direction to get healthier.

Hopefully, a smart exercise schedule and checking a few organization projects off the list will get us to snap back into a better mindset.

Now, off to find something to smile about.
