Getting Back Into the Groove
Even though my leg isn't completely healed, I know I need to slowly get back into a running routine because I am going to attempt to do something this fall that I haven't done before and have to start training NOW. So I finally got back out there. It was almost like starting from scratch
It sure felt good. I am trying to get my training program all lined up--and I think I will take another class. It is funny, there are a couple of things I forgot about running in the cold--obviously I need to make sure I dress for the cold, but there is one thing I should never forger--DON'T HEAD OUT THE DOOR WITHOUT KLEENEX!!!! It really was a beautiful day. I'm so looking forward to next week when the temps are even going to be BETTER.
My 30-day challenge: I have learned a lot of things about Indexing. First of all, I guess people that recorded information didn't really think that one day people would be trying to decipher their handwriting--SERIOUSLY, people ; )
My genealogy is getting more and more frustrating. I get so excited when I think I find someone and then so disappointed when it doesn't pan out. I would love to tell you that these lines are back into the 1400's or 1500's, but nope I'm talking about the late 1800's and even early 1900's. It doesn't help when your maiden name is JONES!!!!
I am re-taking my Photo 1 Class, since I missed half the classes. I have been very grateful for my DIL Macy's help. She is such a great resource and has been so kind to offer me tips. I just wish I could grab my camera and run to her house and have her show me things. She knows pretty much everything about photography and is more than happy to answer my questions. The big problem, sometimes I don't understand what she is trying to tell me. But at least she is just an e-mail away.
They just had transfers and he is training a brand new missionary. Do you realize he will have just one more transfer, and then Allan and I will be heading to Idaho to pick him up. CRAZY. I laughed when I wrote about his release on a FB page with his buddies and one of them wrote: "Time moves so slowly" and another said, "I'm so excited, but it's so far away". They must think I haven't missed him at all because I wrote: "It will be here before we know it."
They loved it when I posted this picture--of them joking around.
I will miss our Elder this week as I watch basketball--IT'S TOURNAMENT TIME!!! Have I mentioned that I love College Basketball??? This picture was taken 5 years ago when Florida was in the final game. By the way can you tell they are the "Florida Gators"???
Now that the selections have been announced, I have to get busy and make my pics. I rarely pic a number one team to win it all (that isn't any fun)--and really I have a feeling this year will not be any different, but we'll see.
