Anyway, how are y'all feeling? School is starting up. August is halfway over! That is good news for me because fall is on its way. But if you are the type who relishes summer, take heart, you still have two weekends until Labor Day. And truthfully, it will still be hot and sunny well beyond then, but the pools just won't be open. I am sort of thinking that if we move soon, I will freshen up the page for fall and maybe add some links back since so many of you have missed them. Our computer is packed away for now, and since the links to all the blogs I visit were in the toolbar, I am lost until we get the computer out of storage unless y'all leave a comment that will have the link for me to post. I guess, just anticipate that I will be adding links up again soon, and let me know if you want me to link to you. And I will.
I am still running, slowly but surely, and I mean to one day soon have a post about that. Honestly, I am sort of waiting to have a less embarrassing success story. Even just a non-stop three mile run would be okay. But I'm not there yet. (*sigh*) I think the initial struggle was a combination of heat and diminished ankle, shin, and lower calf strength from the cruddy elliptical running I had been doing. I am doing a little better at not going out at noon in the 90+ degree heat, which helps, and I am developing more strength in my lower calves, etc. The other bad thing is that, of course, I have a lot less endurance due to the aforementioned factors and the resistance of the road, so my runs are much shorter. Well, I guess it's not all bad- three miles taking an hour would be horrendous! Anyway, the mix I worked on right before we moved has been almost useless to me now because I was working on a hour long flow for fast running. Now I run for just three or four songs a lot of times. But the one I dig most these days is Paul Simon's "The Obvious Child." So, I guess that's another thing to expect, a running success story post complete with a new tailored playlist. Although I don't think I ever remembered to post the one I did last. Well, maybe I'll get to that too.
And as soon as all of my homeschool materials arrive (yeah, you shouldn't be surprised on that one; am I not always late? I didn't actually even order the stuff until I noticed school buses in the neighborhood and realized school had started!) and we get a few weeks under our belts, I will let you know how that is going too.
So, lots of things to look forward to: links, posts, fall, tunage, mileage, knowledge. And maybe somewhere in there we'll be able to announce some good news about a job for George. We really do appreciate all of your prayers so much, and will certainly let everyone know when we know anything. In the meantime, this is now a pie free zone, so do feel free to ask questions. And of course, I am all ears when it comes to how you all are feeling or what you need prayer for. I don't think I say that enough. And if you're shy, just shoot me an email. Alright, one down, thirty nine to go. Until what? Until my 400th post! And then what? Just more posting. Well, maybe a cake. But mostly, just more posting. See you on the 362nd!
