......my friends! I've been missing my bloggy world and with the storm/tornado threats raging outside my window, the kids happily entertained by Legos upstairs, I get to have a little computer time and check in here.
My idea for this piece came to me during my 9 mile run almost a month ago now. I was running solo, without music, and I went into a zone. I was thinking about where I am now with my mom's absence, where I am now with lung cancer. It got me thinking. When I started running, I ran away from grief, the loss, and the anger. Then I started to run through those same feelings. Now, as I run, I feel like I am leaving them behind me and moving towards....free. I can't explain it, but I am running towards butterflies and this time, I am happy to let them go. I am anxious to start, but with any art project, I am intimidated by that blank canvas. I need to just attack it, the way I attack hills on a run.
Tank continues to amaze us. His current obsession is writing and drawing in his journal and playing with Snap Circuits. We are relieved he has not blown up anything (yet).
Little Man is sad about preschool ending. He is obsessed with Bob the Builder and arranging play dates with friends without consulting with me first. I am grateful for those play dates. My friends and I take turns watching the kids so that we each have a turn having a kid-free afternoon. Oh those days go by way too quickly.
So there you have it, in a nutshell, what this girlfriend's been up to lately. I am behind in race re-caps, but I'll get there soon.
I hope you are all having a good start to this month of June. I know I am.
Now it's your turn. What have you been up to lately?
