Beating my personal best

Hi Friends,
You've probably noticed that I've not been writing frequent posts or visiting as often as I'd like to.  I'm sorry for that, and wish I made more time to keep up with my blogging.  October arrived with an extraordinary amount of pressure for me, as I've worked very hard to keep up with requests in the shop, homeschool, Elliot's Tae Kwon Do, my home, the house,our pets, my personal relationships...
Being at home, it turns out, is a more active lifestyle than I once thought it would be.  In the midst of all the activity and the striving, I made time to get back on the treadmill and start running again.
I'm excited today because I beat my personal best.  I ran a seven minute mile and I didn't die!  I've also lost six lbs and feel better than I have in months.  My goal is to lose nine more. 
I had no idea that I would ever run like I did today.  In high school, it was a requirement to run the mile for our gym class.  I think my time at age 15 was eleven minutes.  I guess you could say I loved to sit under a tree and read books more than I loved to play sports.

I hope you are all doing well and feeling good.  I miss reading about your lives and hope to be able to catch up when things start to slow down again.  My mom is going to be with us one week from today.  We are excited and happy that she'll be able to visit.  While it's good to live here in the south, I do miss my family and sometimes even the snow.

Take care....until next time,
