Hump Day

Less jogging, more running...
Yesterday I did my three mile run. Took me longer than I thought it would, but I got it done. I'm sure it didn't help that I've been getting up at 5:30 am versus closer to 7. Combine that with the emotional stress of the last few days and I was sucking air. Right now, my main concering in running is to find a pair of shorts that doesn't wad up looking for a safe haven in my crotch.

Filter...
I've read a couple posts lately that have just rubbed me the wrong way. Rather that go into it all now, I know my filter is just a bit off. As much as I want to see things for what they are, I can only see them through my own experiences. For example, I read a blog entry the other day and she was complaining about how she feels at 9 months pregnant. As much as I tried to empathize, all I read was whining. Perhaps she'd like to trade places with my sister? I know it isn't right, but it's where I'm at right now. More to the point, I didn't comment to any of the posts that bothered me. I know it's me and not them. No one should be put in a position to apologize for what they've written. Maybe I'm just sensitive. It wasn't funny though on Saturday night, when it was my turn to bowl, and my husband said "Noonan!" rather loud.

Speaking of Comments...
I am surprised and awed by the number of comments I've been getting. I really do love to read them and they are so very important to me. As soon as I'm back on track, I'll to my best to visit you all and leave some love there too. Thanks so much for all the support you've given me.

Good luck on the quest for running shorts!

Sorry you are feeling out of sorts, hopefully the stress will dial back soon as your sister and the babies improve.

Hope your sister and babies are doing ok!! It is hard to people to understand that Pregnancy is a gift. That going 9 months is special. It is hard for people to understand that but this awful disease that affected your sister will give you all the appreciation that others don't have. I appreciate my very tenacious 4 year old everyday because of this. I am lucky to even have a child let alone a healthy one. I am lucky to be alive. I hope everyone in your family is holding up ok.

God Bless!!!

I'm sure you will be back on your groove soon.

Were you trying to "be the ball" ?

I have been checking in here since I got back from vacation, and I hope everything goes well.

As you may know, my sister had some staggering problems with her first child, Lucy. Long story short, she was born with a rare heart defect, underwent 17 surgeries, died twice, came back twice... a million dollars of medical treatment and 5 years later, she's running around a swimming pool in sparkly glasses.

I know it does little to ease the stress of your sister's situation, but modern medicine is pretty incredible, and I am sure she is in good hands.

Stay positive, even if she makes it difficult for you.

You are so strong, G.

Let's see on the shorts - a friend of wears her soccer shorts with compressions shorts underneath. She likes the "swish" sound. And no chafing. Try Title 9 for some good shorts, if a bit on the pricey side.

I know how much I hated being pregnant at 7, 8, 9 months. I do appreciate your sentiments. You are right. It's all about perspective.
