I am class rep for all 3 of my kids classes. It just happens. It didnt used to be a big job but it has become rather large of late as the school has decided that the class rep parents now make up the fundraising team. I do think that is kind of sneaky....dont you? ;-)
I spent a considerable amount of time last week emailing parents, looking for venues, making phone calls and all the rest that goes along with the task at hand. One of the other moms on the team is very switched on and really is a huge help to me....the rest kinda cruise and do only what is asked of them which makes it a little like carrying dead weight around. *sigh* Anyyyyway, the fund raiser is going to be the biggest one yet and we are going to do our damndest to make it AWESOME!
This last week has also brought the signifcant challenge of having my lovely man working from home. Well, from my desk in my studio. Yes. Need I say more? He does have an office in Kalk Bay but the ADSL is so dodgy he cant work there (he has given notice).
I tried to do it. I really did. But HELLS BELLS people, I am only human so by Sunday my little overflow had flowed over and words were spoken and plans were made. And all is well in our world again.
For now he will have to work from here until we find him new space - he will work from our bedroom which is very removed from the central workings of our home. And it is not a place I frequent during the day at all. Yes, not ideal but FAR MORE IDEAL than my studio!
I didnt run Wed/Thurs - had really really nasty headaches and felt sorry for myself. Not sure if stress or a virus but still am a little afflicted as we speak. Am sure it will pass though.
Friday I was very excited as I ran a 5km time trial and cracked a 27.40 which is huge for me. A good 2mins faster than my last PB and I havent even started speed work training yet.
In terms of running I am having a continual conversation in my head that goes a bit like this:
I wonder if I could run a marathon, I am sure I could!
Why the %$#@!! do you want to run a marathon? It is boring, painful and not good for your body!
Ja, maybe I should just concentrate on getting faster....aim at 10k races and the occasional 21k.
But, maybe in a year or two I should run a marathon! Just one. So I can experience it.
You SWORE you would not run a marathon, remember? You even told Lisa to HAUL YOUR ASS if you ever spoke about it. Remember?
Oh yes.....Um. Okay. Let me just go for a quick run now. We can talk about it later.
Yup, true story, the dialogue in my head. Should I be concerned? ;-)
