Last weekend, I spent a much needed two days in Plano. I sat around and talked with my parents, laughed with my sister, ate good food (Whiskey Cake in Plano? New favorite...) and ran around the neighborhood a few times. So relaxing. The only thing missing? My brothers! They are both home this weekend for OU/TX. Hate missing them, but we'll be in Norman in a few weeks.
A few weeks- when it's November! I've said it a million times in 2012- and I'll resolve not to say it as much in 2013- but where did this year go?! It flew by. But I'm so ready for the holiday season. Ready to be with my family & friends and bask in the blessings of the year.
Blessings of the year- they've been heavy on my heart this week. My brother learned devastating news about a good friend of his. She lost half of her family in a plane crash. Her dad and two brothers, leaving just the girls- her sister and mother- alive. My brother has grieved for her all week. And, in turn, we all have too. It's too close for comfort when something like that happens- and it's such a tragedy, it just shocks your system. I've cried for people I don't know- and for the fear of losing people I love most. That's where faith is so crucial, right? Here's a link to their Facebook page- if you want to read more about it.
Read more about it- that seems to be the news motto. I can officially say I'm once again fully immersed in the world of TV news. I left for four years- and it took about six months to get it's hooks back in me. I watch, read, scroll- whatever you want to call it- news every day. I consume it like I consume coffee. And I'm starting to take ownership of "my" show. It's not the show I inherited anymore, or the one I jumped into after a bad layoff. It's mine. Back off. :)
So I thought I was going to back off from training for a while. I thought wrong. And I should have known better. How can I not run, when it's beautiful and 60 degrees outside?! My bike and running shoes have been calling my name. So maybe I'm not training for a big race- but I'm still hitting the pavement daily. I guess it's just what I need- and love.
So there's a
Have a fantastic Friday! And BOOMER SOONER!
