I can only imagine the kind of search keywords this title will get me!
Oh well...we will see how that goes!!!
So I won the boob game over at XLMIC's blog. 100%. That's right ladies...I know YOUR boobs and I am not even ashamed of it. Only Marjorie could come up with a match the boob game!!!!
Rest day today....yikes....I rest because I have to and I am old and it is what the plan says and I follow the rules BUT I don't like it. I feel tired and just blah plus well here's too much information for you my readers...I have varicose veins. Were you able to read that? Aren't those 2 ugly words...fitting to describe something pretty ugly if you ask me. I have both my parents to thank for this. BOOOO HOOO Genetics..... It is not too bad (yet) and I only have one (for now) that is a real one and can cause pain sometimes. Running helps A LOT with that. Heat is the enemy. So on a hot resting day...it is not good for me. Adding to this is my volunteer work at the school, most of it done standing up...not good either.
Every Friday I spend 3 hours in each of my boys classroom to help the teachers with anything they need. In the K class it is more hands on with the kids, helping them with writing their names or do projects. It is only week 2 and the trouble makers are known and our teacher will need A LOT of patience to deal with those 2 clowns. In all the years I have coached and helped in the classrooms I have never seen kids misbehave the way those 2 are. The teacher has a chart with the goals for the year, what they need to learn, and when they reach a goal the kids get a sticker on the chart. I was happy and proud to see that Jonathan is following on his brother's footsteps and is leading the board with one of the girls. In the 2nd grade class I prepare all the paperwork for the following week and the homework for the week also.
This week we also started AYSO soccer. Both boys are playing this year, Jonathan is in the SHARKS and Will is in the ELECTRIC FEET. That means 4 practices and 2 games per week. Yeah for me who does all of it ALONE. Still on single parent mode over here. We had the meetings with their coaches, they both needed referee, team parent and assistant coach. Of course nobody wants to do any of it and of course I said yes to both coach to be the team parent.
Tomorrow 11 miles on the menu. Going early again because as I type this it is 101 here. I am so ready for the winter. I am meeting my babysitter who will do 9 miles. I am so happy she comes with me for the long runs. I have decided to have my Garmin beep if I go faster than my target pace for my half marathon. I want to be better at how I start the race, in the last 2 I started way too fast only to either hit the wall or run out of gas before the end.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO LEFT KIND MESSAGES ON MY LAST POST REGARDING MY SCAN RESULTS. I appreciate all of them. I just want to clarify one thing about cancer. My situation is that I don't know if it is cancer or not. That is my main problem right now. Because the tumor is inside the kidney the Dr cannot do a biopsy because the potentially cancer cells could spread and that would be a tragedy. The only way to know is to remove the tumor and that means another surgery. I have had 4 in 6 years and that is more than enough for me. We have decided that if a scan shows that the tumor has grown..even if it is just 1 mm...I will have the surgery. I would not be able to live with this fear and stress. So far so good.
