It's October 1st. How is it October 1st already? I swear it was last week that the kids were out of school and now we are one month into the newest school year. This time of year puts me into full on panic. I love fall but that nasty season is right around the corner. The days are getting shorter and soon it will be dark at 5:00. Just thinking about it makes me want to hibernate until April.
Thanks to Jon Acuff, I now realize I have 25% of my year left. His article yesterday made me feel slightly better about the fact that I have done nothing this year. Plenty of time to do things that I thought I would do. Plenty of time to make things happen. Of course Jon didn't' take into consideration that Gilmore Girls just came out on Netflix today.
Let's see, I had plans this year..... nothing major just you know, lose more weight, run more races, read 50 books. Yeah none of that has happened. Ok, my weight isn't bad... except when I feel like a gigantic cow and I hate myself. Races; yeah I did about oh 5, I have one this Sunday and I haven't run much in two weeks. It's going to be ugly but there are pancakes and beer at the end so this race is going to happen. So far I have only read 18 books.... unless I throw in the ones that I have read with Owen I may never make this goal.
So I set one more goal... writing. Spurred along by the creative writing class I am taking(taught by the most perfect gorgeous man ever) I decided to try and write every day.
So that is what I am doing. Writing, pontificating, pouring my heart out in words. You may think it's boring, possibly pithy, but I think I have lots to say and I am nearly sure it will clear my head.
