Friday Bad News/Good News

Bad news: it's still winter and I'm getting the stir crazy, can't stand my job, I might lose my mind thing going. Minor annoyances that I can live without: trying to put on my yak trax and having them zing off of my shoes across the room. Or hitting me in the face. Sloshing through several inches of new snow on our country backroads while a big giant school bus passes with a foot.

Good news: it's the weekend! I bowled a 177 for my last game last night (earning the adoration of my teammates, of course). My kitchen is clean. New snow means snowshoeing down to the river while pulling Sophie on her sled tomorrow. My long run on Sunday should be school bus free.

Repeat after me: I will survive the rest of winter. I will not go crazy. I will take deep calming breaths. I feel better already. Good luck to everyone with races or long runs on the schedule this weekend!

Yikes about the Yak Trax flinging across the room! Enjoy the snowshoeing with Sophie, and have a great run on Sunday! :)

Shouldn't there be a beer story to go along with the awesome bowling game?

You WILL survive the rest of the winter! And now I totally want to go bowling, I haven't been in years!

Look at it this way. You could live in VA where we've been getting snow like the north normally gets, but we don't own things like yak trax or snow shoes...

You will survive. I'm sure of it!

Hi Heather,
I just repeated your last paragraph like three times:) Spring is coming soon and it is going to be great! The same thing happened to me with my Yaktrax yesterday...they flew across the floor:) Good job bowling and have a good time snowshoeing with Sophie!

I am with you on winter! I can't wait for it to be over. We had sunshine today at least so it felt better.

Sweet bowling score!

I just wish we had a "for sure" last day of winter date that I could countdown til. You know that we'll still end up with that one random horrific blizzard late march/mid april. Ugh. Hate. Snow. Hate. Winter.
