Friday afternoon thoughts...

It's Friday at 5pm, and it's slow at work, so I have spent a good portion of the afternoon surfing the net. When I have too much time on my hands, I think too much...

1. Why is it almost the middle of August and 67 degrees outside?

2. We are doing this relay race next month, and I took the longest position because it's my team and I would hate to subject anyone else to running 24.4 miles, but I am now having second thoughts after looking at the updated leg descriptions. My first leg is 7.7 miles of uphill... now, I am a decent runner, and I can run uphill, but I am used to having some downhill relief. This particular leg doesn't seem to provide any of that. I am beginning to wonder if I should switch with one of my teammates. I know full well that I won't because now that I have this challenge in front of me, I can't back down... bring it on. I better start doing my hill workouts.

3. Cameron is the best husband, and I absolutely love him.

4. I was talking to my friend Val last night when it hit me that if I have a kid in the next year and a half, I will be 40 when they turn 10. When my mom turned 40, I was moving out of the house. I am the youngest. But then I thought... I spent my 20s living it up, while so many of my friends were married and having kids, which is why they are on their 4th and I am just getting married. I guess they'll be having fun in their 40s while I am still dealing with teen angst.

5. Again... why is it 67 degrees outside?

About the relay...WOW! You're awesome! About being an old mom, my mom always tells me I'm wiser because I'm an older mom. I know she's just trying to bring light to a situation, but I'll believe her nevertheless!:)

I love your posts...and i wish it were 67 degrees instead of 108! As for the kid thing, the way i see it, you are only in your 20's once and a mom forever. So i don't think a couple of years really makes too much of a difference when it is all said and done.
