In a Rut

So I started the week off in a bit of a rut. I was feeling a little down (for various reasons) and the fact that I had a presentation Wednesday, a paper due Thursday, and an exam on Friday, not to mention all the regular homework, was not making the week look any more promising. About halfway through the day yesterday, I realized that it was selfish to feel sorry for myself and determined to have a better mood. So I made today a pretty good day. I got up for an EASY run. Very short and slow :) I got back and saw that Mandy had sent me a message, which was nice since we hadn't talked for a while. Then while I was getting ready for class, my package from home showed up! (thanks mom) It has my running watch, some books, and my Whole Foods all-natural honey roasted peanut butter. I have been waiting for this for three weeks! Aside from the package brightening my day, I decided to make a few other people happy, and brought vegemite crackers to class for all the aussies. (I found leftover vegemite from the last student my mom hosted). Then when I got home from class, I had a new episode of the Colbert Report to download from iTunes! Now I am fiddling around on the internet waiting  for a few calls from friends. What an uplifting day!

Jill, I am learning this bloging so don't know if you got my last comment. I love hiking, too. My husband and I do a lot of hiking in Ga. state parks. I know what you mean about deserving the view-a sense of accomplisement to reach the top!! I hope you remember me-I am your Mom's friend from Borders. Jeanette

We really liked talking with you last night and learning so much about Chile. Get the corn recipe from your Chilean mom and we'll try it when you get home. Still very cold here. Till next time. Love you always!! Miem
