"Saturday night and I ain't got nobody ..."

To those of you who are old enough to know that song ...

So last week at this moment I was with the girls laughing my ass off, having eaten and drunk enough calories to negate the fact that I had run 17 miles that day, getting ready to head over to Jacques for a drag show. Tonight, I am home, watching a Law and Order SVU marathon and avoiding the 5 loads of laundry that are all over my bed. I purposely dumped them there so that I would HAVE to fold them before I go to sleep tonight.

Life is funny ... especially as a single woman in her mid 40's working hard to make a living. 2011 has been an interesting year so far and not in a good way. The running is going well as is the fund raising, because it's the only thing I am enjoying right now. Emma is awesome, but very busy already living her own life which I applaud, but it means I am on my own more than ever.

Work SUCKS. Did I say that loud enough? Funny thing is I really like my job ... it's just crazy where I work and I have enough crazy in my own life : ) I don't need more of it all day at work. We'll see how it goes, but I am not optimistic. 4 W2's in 2010 say I am at least employable.

I look forward to the snow being gone. I look forward to seeing Emma on stage in Sound of Music and Cinderella. I look forward to running the Boston Marathon, averaging 9 minute miles or less. I look forward to changing the way things are right now. I look forward to seeing Sally feel better and her parents enjoying the 4th of July Road Race in Dedham (on my 46th birthday). I look forward to so much. I just have to keep that in mind.
