Is it Friday Yet?

Today I went back to work after a nice relaxing ten day vacation. 
It was nice to hear and share holiday stories.  I even felt relaxed as I answered e-mails and faxed a few Transcripts.
The heat was as expected, not working on the coldest day of the school year so far but hey I dressed warmly on purpose and I had a nice hot cup of coffee and some Canoli my secretary had brought in.  Life was still good. 
Then someone mentioned we had a faculty meeting after school.  Grrrrrr! I planned on running, despite the cold.  An hour lost and the boys will be home from school.
Attend said meeting where budget and other depressing topics are discussed.  Thoughts wander during statistical presentation of tax levy and 2% tax cap implications, (I guess I can run the neighborhood after dark, right)
Drive home figuring out the rest of the evening.  Temperature on car reads 23 degrees.  Still contemplating run. 
Hit pothole= flat tire
Get out of car, 23 degrees plus wind chill
Call and wait for husband to rescue, resist urge to cry. 
Realize it is too F-ing cold to run after dark today
Drop car off and resume evening activities, cook dinner, Cubscouts.
Attempt stretching and Elliptical workout with six year old hanging on me while watching The Biggest Loser.  No Excuses?  I am trying here!
Abandon attempted workout after husband loses patience on third grade homework, multiplication and division emergency (tears)………
Someone please put me out of the misery of this day!
I need a day off. 


  1. Yikes, a very tough day. Sorry the run didn't happen and so many less pleasant things did.

  2. That sounds like something out of Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day. I hope the successive days were better. Your blog looks great--very real--looking forward to following it.
    And thank you for your kind comment on my blog--I needed some friendly words, that's for sure.
