Caught Up

October was an incredibly busy month: travel, races, work, etc, so for the first time in about a month, I actually feel as though I am caught up with everything in my life:
  • Work? Yup. I actually have absolutely zero papers to read right now, and I'm so caught up with my planning that I actually was able to get to some of my other work today (committee and department obligations). And the next few weeks will be a lighter load as well, and ultimately, we only have 5 weeks remaining in the semester!
  • Home? Yup. House is relatively clean, laundry is done, Halloween decorations got put away yesterday, and I cleaned and washed my car yesterday too. Even Scooter got a bath yesterday, so he's clean too!
  • Running? Yup. Well, I was never behind on that, but for once I don't think I'll feel like I have to squeeze it in this week. But November is gonna be busy running-wise for me: Back-to-back HMs this weekend and the next and then the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving; however, I'm not stressed about any upcoming runs -- I'm looking forward to them all.
  • Sleep? Hells yeah! I think I've slept more in the past few days than I did in all of October, and good sleep too. And with the time change, and light in the morning, I actually got up an hour early this morning just because I was well-rested, awake and ready to get up. That hasn't happened in weeks!

So, hopefully feeling so on top of shit helps me out tonight at bowling. It's the first position round, and we need to bowl well if we're gonna place well and win back some of our money! Cross your fingers for us and pray to the God of Bud Light that we all bowl like superstars!

Having things back to normal or not having anything hanging over your head is a great feeling. Hope bowling goes well!

Glad to hear you are all caught up! I wish I was as caught up as you on my paperwork. Maybe if I wouldn't spend so much of my evening blogging I could get some of that shiz done. But, it's real hard to be productive after a long day of paperwork and challenging kids!
