Well, I didn't sleep great again last night (I think I had WAY too much coffee), but that happens. No running for today, and I'm hoping that while my company is here I'll be able to force myself to do the necessary running first thing in the mornings so I can better enjoy my afternoons and evenings with them. I'm excited for my stepmom and sister to arrive this afternoon -- I haven't seen them since my wedding (18 months ago) and my stepmom, especially, needs a good vacation.
I don't talk about my family much on this here blog, but that's primarily b/c I figure this isn't really the place for it, and b/c there's honestly too much to say and it requires a book, not a blog to explain. But essentially? My family is pretty dysfunctional. (Yet, I can't say that's been all bad -- it's shaped who am today and I don't think I turned out too badly.)
But the past couple of years have been rough on my stepmom: she went through both ovarian cancer and breast cancer (currently, is in remission for both and doing successful with treatment), she and my dad got divorced (so, "technically" not still my stepmom but I still think of her as family), and has dealt with my nasty teenage brother and sister (let's just say that my brother's behavior over the past year led him to a few nights in jail). So she needs a break, and I hope I can provide the right amount of fun and relaxation that she needs.
I'm looking forward to her and my sister's stay, and am excited to see them both this afternoon. Cross your fingers that I'll have the willpower to get up early tomorrow morning and get my 7 done.
