Mothers Day

I wimped out on the Mothers' Day Classic. Not because I wasn't up to it, but because there is just WAY too much to do around this place. And if I did the run, then went out for lunch with my Mum and sisters, my entire day would have been a write-off. So late last night, when I was tired, sore, and stressed to the max about all that still needed to be done before I headed back to work on Monday, I made the decision to pull out of the run.


I feel bad. But I'm on a deadline here, and it's not like I sell my house every week. And there will be another Mothers Day Classic next year. Do I sound like I'm trying to convince myself? Yeah, I thought so.....

Well, I'll just look on my entry fee as a donation to a really good cause.


And by the way, I had a good Mothers Day. I got a CD, some Belgian chocolates, breakfast cooked for me (NOT in bed - ick!), and some loving hugs from my children. I also had a lovely lunch with my Mum and two of my sisters, plus some wine and tasty nibbly things tonight.

All good.

That made two less in the run this year- I didn't go either. Crappy foot!!! I'm getting really tired of it!

Call it time management Kerryn. There's always next year. I reckon a lunch with Mum & sisters beats a fun run hands down. It's what I did too.
We had a lovely picnic in the park followed by a stroll through a local art gallery. No men to moan & groan about that. It was heavenily.

I didnt go either. Maybe I should make up for it by doing the half marathon in July. Just kidding!
And re: the autopsies - no, the subject isnt still alive, its done in front of a live audience LOL!!

There is ALWAYS another run. Why wait until mother's day? :) You are right, though - sometimes you need to focus, and you have a lot on your plate.

I got a candle for mothers day. It stinks to high heaven, but the kids are so proud!
