i'm a perfectionist to the point it's a fault.  if i can't do it perfectly, i don't want to do it at all

this verse hit my heart. 
     Isaiah 41:13 For I am the Lord, your God, who takeshold of your right hand and says to you. Do not     fear; I will help you.

i love music.  one of my favorites right now is sara bareilles.

loved father's homily today.  in gist, he said look at your life and see if your actions are what you want to be teaching.  funny i was almost crying about this on my way to church. 

i think i'm done writing about ku football although probably not.  this is going to be a rough season.

loving the weekend, sad that it will be drawing to a close soon.

i ran today

i ran today....and it actually felt good. since my last 1/2 marathon, running has felt different, forced, uncomfortable.  if you know me in real life and someone i talk to about running, you would know that running as been difficult.  today, it felt good, challenging but good. 

Ahhh....i ran today.

tonight, as charlie and i played basketball, charlie gave the run down on the rules and the boundary lines.  he pointed to both ends of the driveway and called them the headquarters, 'you know mom, where the players who aren't playing sit."

KU Football

I love my alma matter. I truly truly do. Did you see Saturday’s game? Yeah you know the one against North Dakota State. So who created the time machine? I swear it was 1987.

As a result, my family is seriously considering becoming Razorback fans. I’m pretty sure we all look good in red.

Some current thoughts running through my head

I feel like I’m on the teetering edge of spiraling out of control when it comes to my diet and exercise. The last couple of months my diet and exercise have not really been where I would like them to be. My problem is that I enjoy eating and I’m an emotional eater. I don’t necessarily eat when I’m hungry, I eat when I’m happy, sad, stressed, excited nervous, etc. At the end of the day, it’s up to me. Only I can make the choices that will make me happy. I feel like I need a plan, but I’m probably making it more difficult than it needs to be. On top of that, running just hasn’t felt good at all and I just don’t have the umph to make it consistently to my 5:30 exercise classes. Sad thing is I feel so much better when I do go, but man that alarm just goes off way to early.

I’m loving that the boys love school. I have been pleasantly surprised how Charlie really seems to love school. I’m probably a little nervous that we just might be in the honeymoon stage, but he has not once complained about going to school. Mac seems to have really settled in this year and seems to be building stronger connections to the school and his friends there. I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss presentation, because truth be told I do.

I loved this post and the excerpt taken about busy. So so true. I need to read this book.

You know your mind is on work a lot when you tell your husband as your sleep talking that the documents for the release schedule are in the trunk. nice
