Sunday Summary: All Created Equal

"God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than He is of any other slacker."
~C.S. Lewis

Awesome! According to C.S. Lewis, the Big Guy sees us all on the same playing field. So when you play, play, play and don't win, win, win don't worry so much. So on the subject of playing and winning, it pays off to run in virtual races. While I did not win the Not Your Average Adventure Virtual Race, I was a random winner 3x removed. While I am a winner, expect the Big Guy to have a sense of humor. This ambitious slacker is now the proud new owner of this wonderful prize. Thanks P, you are super-fantastic!

In other news I know I have been MIA in blog world for a few days. I don't know what it is, but things haven't been going according to plan. I am normally busy, like every night of the week. So the last two and half weeks of November I made a genuine effort to unbusy myself. Then Decemeber starts and I can just see the busy rushing at me. Then something odd happened. The Monday and Wednesday night Krav Maga class I was going to start, I decided to post postpone. I enjoyed not having a bazillion things to do and postponing it a couple weeks is going to make a huge difference in my crazy schedule. Then as an unexpected domino effect happened, my Tuesdays and Thursdays spontaneously freed up and my party last night for about 25 turned into a perfect intimate family-only party of 15. It was really nice. On the downside, other than physical therapy, I have been slacking in the exercise arena. I know it doesn't make sense, more free time, less exercise? The above DVD should help.

Today I am slated to run with a friend in an hour while my son is at religious pre-school. I will have my one year old and the weather forecast says it is raining now and will rain all day. I don't have a rain cover for my jogger. A couple weeks ago we had the same issue so I didn't get ready, I didn't run and it ended up not raining at all. Right now it is not raining and I have learned my lesson. Today, I will be prepared, I am donning my running gear just in case I have the opportunity to run and if not, spandex-y clothes are in, right?

Thankful Three
