"I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been tryin' to be lately. . ." ~ that guy. . .the one who sings that song. . .someone tell me his name please :)
I've always been a straight-shooter when it comes to my love/hate relationship with exercise. Lately, I'm more of a "'round tuit." But, I threw on my "PLEASE. . .SLOW DOWN" t-shirt this morning in the hopes that what goes 'round comes off eventually.
There are so many fun things going on in my family right now. It's birthday season - I think we've got a birthday every couple of weeks from now until June. Big families can be hard to keep up with, but the entertainment is always built-in.
We've also got a wedding in the works. As the Mother of the Groom, I'm responsible for certain components of the wedding details. . .mainly to smile and nod. I am not gifted in the world of "foo," and once my suggestion of a taco bar was shut down, well, I was incensed :) Not really, I'm delighted to help. The most important thing is that my son and bonus daughter have a good time in the company of people who love them. I'm going to be a great mother in law!! (As the oldest children, you "get" me if Dad abandons ship. . .brace yourselves!)
Of course, I'm excited about the campaign. I really like the idea that I'll be able to do some good for my community. Folks keep telling me to prepare myself for the "down" side of politics - and I'm sure those times will come. . .but I think I'm ready to handle the harsher side of jeers. Let's face it, Motherhood isn't exactly a popularity contest. :)
I've also got some fun meetings and gatherings and a little TCB going my way this week that I am looking forward to marking off my list.
So, as I sported my day-glo green safety message this morning, exercising and humming that guy's little ditty in my head, I though about all the good stuff in my life. I felt positive, competent. . .Golden. And then, I felt like a total nerd for waving at some guy who was NOT my friend in her silver SUV. Nothing gold can stay!
