1- Elisabeth is back in blogland!! She lost her prior site in a server malfunction which had to have been devastating. BUT, she’s back and just as lovely as ever. Visit her!
2- I have been TIRRRRRED this week. I made a tactical error (sort of) and didn’t sleep in on Thursday. Josh ended up missing his run that day and we’ve decided that day he will take the early run shift (since it’s his day to drive the kids to school) and I will use it as a morning to catch up on sleep (ie: get up at ~6 instead of 4:30). I have been out of energy
Tired = grumpy
Grumpy = scrolling
Scrolling = more grumpiness and disgust at how I am wasting my life away
Okay it’s not that bad. And I have my suspicions some of it is hormonal. But, next week –> more sleep.
3- The 2024 Boston Marathon cutoffs – just wow. I violated my social media rules and spent a lot of time on Reddit. I feel so bad for people who ran 5 minutes UNDER qualifying and still won’t get to race in 2024! It does not make me feel positive about my chances of getting to run Boston in 2025 but I feel like I just have to aim for the qualifying time first and then go from there, since even that is a stretch.
4- Mini-rant: School informational meetings during the work day. Is this a thing everywhere? I find it really frustrating especially when they are not offered on video (I think video would be a nice compromise so people could watch asynchronously and school personnel wouldn’t have to work after hours).
Are schools still assuming in this day and age that someone is home with free time most days?
I know a certain 11 year old that will probably also be super into it.
