7 QT – Spring? Edition (with "profanity")

— 1 —

Theoretically “spring” has arrived here in central Indiana. Today it is supposed to be 65*, and we will be outside. Next week, another polar vortex. I would just like to say, suck it, winter.

Apparently we are the only people on earth to have not seen some movie called “Frozen,” so I can’t even blame the weather on Elsa? Elza? Elizabeth? I see these memes all over Facebook and Pinterest and have no idea. And there’s some song? “Let it Go?” No clue. Pop culture illiterate, here.

But I did just download Justin Timberlake’s “Rock Your Body” into my running playlist. So I’m only, what, twenty years behind? So my grandkids should be introducing me to today’s Disney feature films…

I suck at Lent. The end.

But I have been sorta faithfully doing the couch to 5k program. I have been trying to run for a few years. Mostly I run/walk, but I want to actually run/run, so I downloaded the 5k Runner app from ClearSky (no affiliate links here, friends, and no compensation; just sharing). It has taken me a few weeks, but I have been fairly consistent and I. Love. It. Like, big pink puffy heart love it. Today, I ran 3, walked 2, ran 5, walked 2, ran 5, walked 2, ran 3 more. I mean, I did a 13 minute mile. That’s nothing for some folks, but that’s HUGE for me. And I’m loving it. Especially when, like today, I can run in my neighborhood and see all the cute old men out with their cute ancient dogs 🙂

I’m going to my first homeschooling convention next week. I’m a little afraid. I don’t have a long, denim skirt, and my hair isn’t quite bun-length yet. HA!!

I got a job. I will be a college instructor on Mondays, starting August 18. I will be teaching women studying women’s ministry; three classes have been assigned to me: intro to ministry, influential historical women, and biblical communication. I would covet your prayers as I prepare classes and prepare to return to work. It’s an incredible opportunity, and it’s only one day a week. Little Man will be with his grandparents every Monday while I teach; it’s like a win-win-win, but I am still struggling with feeling a bit guilty. That’s all!! Have a great weekend!!!

One thought on “7 QT – Spring? Edition (with "profanity")

  1. I think you'll be surprised at the homeschool convention – there are plenty of moms there in jeans and pony tails too! My advice is to go through the vendors hall at least once before you buy anything – it can be very overwhelming especially the first time. Have fun.
