"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. but the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

Maintenance, Not again!?!

This is what my life is all about....maintaining....I can't imagine anybody having other wise. Anyone out there that doesn't maintain? Okay, so we all know about's pretty universal. I hate maintaining...there I said it. ugh!!! Don't let my 12 year old read this. I tell him all the time in my very cheery, encouraging voice.."You need to just keep your room clean, you know? It's all about maintaining it. A little at a time." "Same thing goes for your grades, just do whatever you can to maintain that A ." On and on it goes. My life is all about maintenance: maintaining the laundry...the floors...the dust? I went running for the first time since Oct. 15 and this is what it feels like to not maintain... I don't like it...I felt pregnant or something. It made one of my bad days training for the Marathon feel pretty darn good.

Oh my goodness! I am not being grateful....I am ashamed...I am soooooo grateful that I have kids, and relationships and a garden to maintain...and hair and a house to dust (or not). That reminds me I need to maintain my the list. to the list...

11. An answered prayer...something lost that was found...aka. my lost camera.
12. Being able to run two miles without stopping and without too much pain.
13. A Thank You.
14. A homemade card.
15. My husband spankin my butt every time he passes. Well almost every's a disappointment when he doesn't.
16. Butterfly kisses...which leads me to....
17. Eskimo kisses. mmmmm
18. Being called 6 different and profound ways...makes me all teary eyed.
19. A crisp (not too crisp) Autumn morning right when the sun is coming up.
20. The warmth of the sun on my face.
21. A cute sweater to layer up with...oh yeah!! This weather is starting to grow on me a bit.
22. I really am grateful for ...... apparently. As you can see I do ...... a lot....
23. I am grateful I have a full and happy life that I CAN MAINTAIN.
