Just Breathe!

There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy, and the tired.”

– F(rancis) Scott Key Fitzgerald
   The Great Gatsby, ch.4.





 Right now I think that I am all four!   It seems like it is getting harder and harder to stop and just breathe these days. 

    Let’s see…. we were up at 4:00 a.m. monday taking Rusty’s mom to the hospital.  She will be fine but I am in charge of policing her meals again.  The woman is hard-headed and thinks she is now a doctor of medicine.  Yesterday when I told her why she had to be brought to the ER she gave me a look that said “You don’t know what you are talking about you idiot.”  Yes it was that kind of look.  I had a spilt second urge  to slap it off her face!  Just breathe!

   I am getting ready for my fourth 5K of the year! Yea! They have been really fun but I have yet been able to run a 1/2 mile without stopping to walk.  Will I ever be able to run 3.1?  Maybe next year. I was in a 5K this past weekend and my time really sucked!  I pretty much  walked the whole way but I still had fun.  Tip- get a good night’s sleep the night before, eat some carbs but don’t gorge yourself on pasta, my pasta monster came out, and have only one cup of coffee before the race!  Just breathe!

  I started school this week, the first time in 20 years.  Just one course but I have a chapter a week to read, that’s no big deal.  Two assignments, Ok a little reading and writing… a practice test for extra points, I will need it.  The real test monday!  Three more books that are recommended reading! Oh, did I mention it’s been 20 years! OMG!  I can do it…..no, I WILL DO IT!  Just breathe!

       WORK…….. a dirty four letter word!  I am at the office mostly 9 hours a day.  I look forward to my mid day outings to the bank and post office just to get some fresh air and get away from the phones.  I have an audit to look forward to the end of October!  No big deal..I just have to pull two years worth of stuff…by myself…no help.. in the mist of  doing all my other work and preparing for a big Halloween party! Just breathe!

  So in a nut shell…… I am pursued by family to help mother-in-law with her nutrition,   I am pursuing physical fitness and health,  I am busy striving for a new career,  and I am tired of work!  Yep, I think I hit all four on the nose!

So , I am just going to Breathe!
