Evening Run

This is turning into a stressful week. Work is a bit crazy right now. My boss is back in town after being away for most of the year at grad school, but he's only around for three weeks, after which time he heads off to Venice to paint for the month of June. Rough life, huh?! :-) We're working on our first exhibition of the season, which opens this coming Saturday. But we're also trying to get organized for show #2, which opens two days after Keith gets back from Italy. Ryan is busy, and is still getting over being sick. Sam has a wicked cough and is having a rough time of it. My parents are arriving in Maine tomorrow, and are coming to stay with us on Thursday night so that they can watch Sam on Friday, since daycare is closed, Ryan will be away, and I have to be at work early to hang Saturday's show. It is awesome that they are coming to visit and to help us out, but I always feel compelled to have everything neat and clean before anyone comes to visit, and I also really do not want my mom to get sick while she is here because of us, as they are headed to Italy at the end of next week, for a trip they've been dreaming about for years! I also don't want to get sick. And I want to race well, and fast, on Sunday. AIE!

Needless to say, despite all of this, or actually, because of all this, I headed out for a quick 3 mile run after putting Sam down to bed early tonight. I'm typically not at my best on an evening run, but tonight, it felt good to get out and run, in an attempt to outrun the silly thoughts in my head and the stress that had built up in my shoulders. Not to mention, it was warm! And not raining! Hurray :-) Maybe it wasn't such a bad day after all?
