This week has been a little crazy to say the least. I am glad it's Wednesday since tomorrow is the last workday of the week for me. Work has been a little hectic this week but the days have flown by. I manage a small department so when one person goes on vacation we all have to cover for one another. I have been super busy this week doing the job that I used to do before I was promoted to the manager of the division. I almost forgot what doing that job was like but it was good to take a step back and re-train myself on those tasks again. I love my job and I know that I am blessed to have it. I get really annoyed when people complain about their jobs because I know that their lives would be worse if they didn't have a job at all! Don't you agree?
I haven't mentioned this on the blog because I have been trying to let it settle into my mind but I just found out about a month ago that my step-father now has cancer. So now both my father and my step-father have cancer. I am pretty bummed about it to say the least. My parents divorced when I was really young so I spent a lot of years with my step-father. He is a good man and accepted us as his own. I feel bad that this has happened to yet another person in my life that I love. Please keep him in your prayers as he is really worried and scared about what is going to happen to him. I am sure that must be a terrible feeling and must consume his every thought.
Thank God for running which gives me an outlet to relieve some of the stress in my life. Having said that, I have been absolutely obsessed with the 7-Day Forecast lately! I can't believe that the lows have been in the mid 50's this week. I seriously try to plan my runs around the weather, especially my longer runs. I can't hardly wait to go for a long run on Friday and be able to enjoy the cooler weather! I have been dragging my other half along on most of my run lately or at least a part of them until he increases his mileage and I am kind of enjoying it. Yesterday he mentioned that he doesn't mind if I have to run without him because he doesn't want to mess up my training. Isn't he
smart sweet? I might just have to do this on my long run this week. I think I might feel bad leaving him behind. I have a hard time with that.
So how is the weather where you live? Has it started to cool down at all?
