As a kid I never had allergies. Now that Iâ€™m an adult, I get them every spring. After five years of this youâ€™d think I realized that be able to more quickly diagnose a stuffed up head as allergies instead of â€œa head cold that wonâ€™t go away.â€ Marathon Girl is always happier after long runs.
Chicago Joâ€™s recent marathon experience reminds me of my own experience and why I stick to short runs. Â With two boys who always want to play with me as soon as I get home from work. One of their favorite activities is to have me swing them both around in my arms. I donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m going to do once Molly gets old enough that she wants to play with dad too. Last time I checked, its impossible to grow a third arm.
Nothing makes my boys happier than taking them to the park.
Writing fiction is much more difficult than writing non-fiction. With non-fiction you already know what happened and simply have to artfully retell those events. With fiction, even if you know what you want to happen, sometimes you realize itâ€™s not going to work and have to either rewrite an entire chapter or simply start over.
The bad thing about spring is that I have to start mowing the lawn again. I hate mowing the lawn even though I like the way a freshly mowed yard looks.
Why is it politicians want to bail out people who were stupid enough to take out mortgages they couldnâ€™t afford? Do they really think that eliminating consequences for bad decisions will actually do these people any favors?
One of the people I admire is a sister-in-law whoâ€™s never afraid to do the right thing no matter what the consequences.
Sometimes I wonder if Iâ€™ll ever watch TV after LOST goes off the air. Itâ€™s going to take a show with excellent writing, strong characters, and a great plot to even make me consider trading my time for the boob tube. The good news is that LOST will be back for a fourth season.
Iâ€™ve noticed a lot more people wearing Detroit Tiger hats since they went to the World Series. My guess is Iâ€™ll be the only one claiming to be a Tiger fan if they tank this year.
I need more sleep. Six-and-a-half hours a night isnâ€™t enough.
The one thing I wish I had more of was time. Thereâ€™s just not enough of it to accomplish everything I want to do in a day.
And speaking of time, whoever returned my watch to the gym's lost and found has my eternal gratitude.
