After much ado I have finally figured out how to get into my Blogger account from the lap top. I am now coming to you from Paul's desk at our office. My desk is covered with the accounting I am supposed to be doing now, Paul's desk had space on it so here I am.
I am having a tough go of it these past few days. I am having a hard time being a full time working mom and leaving the childrearing to Paul. I miss the kids already and today is only day one. I am for some crazy reason feeling close to tears. I have worked days for Paul when he has other things he needs to tend to, but for some reason I am finding it particularly hard this time.
I am doing fine here making patients happy and keeping up with the work load. Keeping up with the work load is a task today, the Tuesday back from a long weekend. We were crazy busy this morning, this afternoon may slow down a bit, but I am not sure yet. I am writing this when I can grab few minutes in between patients, so forgive me if I lose continuity.
We had a good a weekend. We drove the new ride to Pentictin and I am falling in love with the van. The kids loved it too. I have some pictures to post for you but I don't have camera software on the lap top so those will have to wait until I get home.
I had my worst race ever on Sunday. I went into the run fatigued and very stressed from the crazy week before. When I get stressed I lose my appetite. This would be okay if I were not trying to fuel up to run a half marathon. To make matters worse I was up most of the night with one kid or another the night before the run. The race course is beautiful and I can't wait to give it a go next year under better conditions.
Running can be a bit of a gamble sometimes. As a runner you always have good runs and bad runs. You just hope that the good ones land a race day. That is not the way this one played out for me. I am over it already and looking forward to the Blackwell Dairy 15K run this Sunday. It is one of my favorite courses and I am hoping to redeem myself for this last weekend.
We had a nice visit with Paul's Granny and Grandpa Harvey. We had a great dinner with them on Sunday and stayed at their place Sunday night. We all slept well for a change and had nice drive home. I took some photos for you of the high points of the drive, I will post those as soon as I can.
We have a softball game tonight, Paul will be drinking beer and coaching from the sideline. I am looking forward to getting outside after full day in the office. Theresa is keeping to busy here to write more. I also a have a completed knitting project to show you. Where did I find the time to knit last week? I have no idea!
