I’m late this morning and here is why. I have been consumed with taking out a half wall the last two weeks, a project that grows a little every day. Moose…you can see him there, peeking around the counter’s end, is afraid of plastic and does not like a lot of strange men in the house. I think this is a good thing. But it means I have had to shuttle him back and forth to doggie day care, and try and get him to eat around the chaos. And while you can’t tell it from looking at this picture, it’s almost done!!
This weekend I will be running in the Beach to Bay Marathon Relay. I’m leg 2, 4.67 miles on a park road. It’s flat. That’s great, because the third leg is over the causeway bridge. No thank you. But here is the thing. Last year, our team won our Senior Mixed Masters Division. We were world champions of the Geezer Marathon Relay Teams primarily because there were only two teams. This year, there are six. The pressure is on to defend our world title, but dudes, I am the slowest one on the team, by a minute a mile. So that means if we lose by minutes, You Know Who will be eyed suspiciously as the cause. Oh, and by the way, if you haven’t visited Running for Burgers, I hope you will.
This morning I woke up at 4 am realizing just how much time I have to finish my WIP before deadline. I can’t be doing remodeling projects while I am trying to meet a deadline!! I have to stop the madness!
I will stop the madness, I promise I will, just as soon as I find a new rug to go with my new furniture in my new living room. This has been tons of fun, but I wish I was spending someone else’s money.
What’s made you crazy this week? What distractions are you dealing with? Are you on target to meet your deadlines, whatever they are?
