Today I am supposed to be at an expo for a marathon I was going to run with my sister.  I will soon have plenty of race bibs to create a collage of non-run races for this year.  40 hasn't been what I planned for it to be.

Instead of spending this weekend with my sister preparing to "enjoy" 26.2 miles of running, I will spend time with my family. Currently the wind is blowing 28 mph with gusts of 41 or higher.  That means track meets and baseball games must be played!  We are hosting a track meet today that starts at 4:00.  I am also the administrator for a baseball game that starts at 5:00.  One son is running track today (broken hand) and the other is playing baseball.  My DH will take the track meet and I will take the baseball game since my job assigned me to it.  Our oldest is pitching again so we hope for a great game.  Tomorrow will be filled with little dribbler's basketball.  Both boys are reffing(not sure if that's a word) 7 games tomorrow and my daughter will play 2 games.  So we have a marathon this weekend of a different sort.

This is the hardest time of year for school administrators in my opinion.  Time to start looking ahead at next year's staff and making plans to move in the direction.  That means some hard meetings with teachers and coaches.  These meetings don't always turn out easy.  With FB and Twitter, administrators are instantly trashed and become the bad guys.  Fun times in the days and weeks ahead.  Just have to keep in mind that we work for the kids and have to do what's in their best interest.
Break is over so I better get back to work.  More meetings on the schedule.

Another week has flown by and we have made it to Friday already.  We are busy as always with basketball for my daughter and baseball for the boys.  My husband started a new job with the same company so he is dealing with a learning curve at work.  He had been working two jobs recently for a little extra money but has decided he can't get enough sleep doing that.  The boys are both working so we are planning lots of schedules and trying to get everyone where they need to be.  What a crazy life!

We are still living in the RV during the week.  I am still battling whatever it was that sent me to the dr in December.  I have started some medication on a trial basis to see if I can get any relief from my symptoms.  It is expensive but insurance finally decided to cover some of the cost so that helps.  I do find some relief and hope things will continue to get better.  I have had to miss several races that I had paid for but I would rather do that and get better than make myself worse or cause anymore suffering to my body.

Diet is going well and I am slowly losing the weight I need.  I read a great article yesterday and it made me refocus on my journey and not my destination.  Things are moving right along in our world and I hope they are in yours as well.
