Ho hum

I've been in a funk for a couple of days.  It's cold in central PA and the sky is gray.  I think it even snowed a little today.  It's going to be a long winter.

Exercising always seems to help.  As much as I don't like running inside on the treadmill, I feel it's going to be necessary.  I prefer to run outside past the dairy operation and the farm where we got our two cats.  There's an open grate bridge and then some horse stables on my run, too.  I looked forward to the familiar scenery on my runs in the warm weather.  I'm one of those who wishes summer would last forever.  Don't get me wrong, I love spring and fall when each season lasts 3 months (like where I grew up).  But, there isn't much of a spring up here.  And winter is too long.  Last year's winter was never ending and it was so cold.  Even my hardy Northerner husband grew tired of the cold and snow.

What else is on my pea brain?  Not much except I'm busy running my kids around and I love it.  I've learned to love my job of being a mother.  I know that sounds weird, but for years I think I resented being a mother.  A selfish attitude that I'm glad to no longer possess.  Yes, I've had a change and I'm better for it.  There will come a day when I miss these moments of dropping kids off here and there.  The little conversations and questions that crop up in the car.  So, here's to new attitudes.
