The Best Laid Plans

I was going to get up early, which I did, get my inspections from yesterday uploaded on the computer, then do my run for the day, and then shower and head up to Lansing to meet with my boss, Bob, for my performance review. Not so much. It snowed overnight and we have a couple of new inches of snow. I didn't get the inspections in as quickly as I thought I would and didn't want to run on the uncleared roads so, since I just finished uploading my inspections, I'm just going to get ready and head up to Lansing. I'm listening to all the fire departments in the county on my pager going out on accidents on the expressways so, the roads must not be that great yet. The extra time I will have leaving early will be beneficial I think. Anyway, I'm one who gets a little frazzled (ok, that's an understatement, I'm more like a child who doesn't get his way) when "my plans" get derailed, but I think God does this purposefully to continually remind me who is in control and.... it's NOT me. Have a great, and safe, day everyone! :-)

Kathy! I am SO glad you peeked in! You SHOULD be proud of my running... your vested in a lot of it, especially from the very beginning in that first mile... then two... then stadium stairs! Thanks so much for helping in getting me on track with my physical health. You have been a great friend and encouragement since day 1, not just to me, but to my family as well, and I sincerely thank you for that.

You're no slacker! What most people reading this won't know is that you just got a metal pin removed from your toe and you probably shouldn't be doing as much as you're doing on your foot yet, not to mention not even having your sights set on a half marathon this spring! Just be smart and... be careful! Tell Lindi I said good luck in her training and, she should look in here. Can the girl even EAT regular food yet?!? Just like her mom (rolling eyes and shaking my head)!

Oh, and I didn't type it all at ONCE. Sheesh. It's really not that hard. Thanks again for stopping in and leaving me a note!
