Something Resembling Sanity

I've settled back into my routine and caught up from being gone on vacation. I'm pretty sure that I have most of the balls back up in the air.

For now, I'm holding off on making a decision about the Netflix vs Blockbuster idea. My boyfriend owns more movies than any sane person should, so I've decided I'll just raid his collection until he tells me to quit or I've exhausted the supply. Then I'll make a decision and join one of them. Thanks to everyone for their input!

It feels pretty good to say that my bills are paid, the laundry is done, the cat is feed, the plants are watered, and my to do list is down to only 98 pages from the 250 that it was at a few weeks ago!

The training schedule is taped to the fridge. As far as I can tell, my knee and ankle are doing fine, and I'm running out of excuses as to why I'm too busy to run.

So, it would appear that I'm finally back in the game. My schedule calls for 4 miles today, so my treadmill and I have a date in a little while.

Last night we had an ice storm and I don't quite trust myself to go run outside. I'm pretty much a big ol' klutz and I'm afraid that I'll fall and break something or twist my ankle if I try to brave a run on the slippery streets. I'm not willing to risk an injury just as I'm about to get going again!

So, me, the treadmill, and a movie are going to be fast friends this afternoon for my first run in so long that I don't even want to think about it!

I can't wait!

I've actually been looking forward to this moment for days. Wish me luck!!


  1. Love the title of your post, sanity, ahhhhh!

    I missed your original Netflix vs. Blockbuster debate, we just joined Netflix and love it. I don't want to go to the video store, that's why it works for us:-)

    WTG on getting all the chores & paperwork done, you are diligent, I could learn from you...

    Enjoy the treadmill & the movie:-)

  2. your hair looks totally cute right now! i'm in the growing out phase...blech.

    good luck with the 4 miles today!

  3. Glad to hear you back in the game! I hope your run went well today! I love the picture of your hair when it was short and lighter! But, I have to admit, they are all wonderful!

  4. I think I like shorter but darker, the color it is now but the lenght of the second picture. But you have great hair and you look fab in all the pics!!

    YAY for sanity! I totally think you should come here and help me find some!

  5. Welcome back to the world of running. I don't have an opinion on the hair. I think it looks fine either way.

  6. The length and color of your hair is pretty much up to you. Welcome back to running!
