I'm amazing in my own mind...

I think maybe I'm loosing it but some days (mainly while I'm running alone and trying not to think about how much longer my route is) I write my blog in my head. I'm so witty and wonderful. My thoughts are terribly deep and insightful. In my own mind, I'm truly amazing, plumbing the depth of my soul in order to share it with the world (or the three people who read this but..details, details..whatever).

When I finally sit down to really write, you get what you read here. Drivel. Pure unadulterated drivel. and pictures don't forget those. The kids are cute though so how can I not share their great cuteness?!

Forgive me for the disjointedness of this, I'm just so tired tonight. The girls didn't sleep much last night. They were in and out of our bed from about 2am on. Some nights are just like that in this crazy house.

And I do have many thoughts swirling. We are praying for direction in many areas, mostly wondering what to do about the kid's schooling next year. Our oldest is heading into grade eight and both Kev and I are feeling a greater need to look at where his strengths are and how to help him work towards being a man. It's crazy to think of us having a teenager. I think his voice may be starting to change - YIKES!

Also, I'll have a new race update tomorrow. We (the running gals and me) are off to our second 10 km trail race in the morning. This has been a bit of a sluggish week for me so I'm a teeny bit nervous about the run this time. My distances have been shorter this week too so hopefully I'll be raring to go in the morning.

Over and out....

I love reading your blog...it is NOT drivel. And the pictures you post are always gorgeous (speaking of which, the sunset pictures below - WOW).

Hope your race goes well today. I'm so out of shape, I'm not sure I'll ever be able to run again. But I suppose I won't know if the snow never melts here...and that seems highly likely at the moment :)

Really really wish I was in shape to do a race. They are fun and I miss them! Hope it goes well for you :)

I'll go over posts in my head on occasion too and they'll sound wonderful. Some how, they never come out the way they are inside.

Love your blog though. Keep it up :)

Good luck with your race this morning Shay!
I always enjoy reading your blog, as you know and often pull great tidbits that get me thinking. I do know how you feel though, I am right there with you.
You are in my prayers, as always.

I love your blog, Shay!
I also write entries in my head and it always surprises me that the ones I think are the worst are the ones that get the most comments that seem to resonate the most, and the ones I feel so good about writing don't get much love!
Our son is in eighth grade this year and we have been dealing with the "man of character" thing big time. It feels so hopeless sometimes, but occasionally we get a glimmer of the man he will be. Teenaged boys just aren't usually paragons of maturity! Also, we are planning on putting him into public school next year...lots of reasons...but the biggest one is that we feel God leading us in that direction.
How'd your run go? I hope you felt good for it.

Craaaaazy to think about having a teen-ager! Though I have MANY years before we reach that juncture.

I hope the race went well!

Your blog is not drivel. It is interesting and honest. And I like it.

Steph said...

This is a no drivel zone! Your blog is excellent!

Becky said...

Dude, your blog is not drivel. Seriously.

Klin said...

I never remember the best posts I write in my head. . . . right before I drift off to sleep.

Your posts are among my favorite. No drivel here.

Hope the race was great!

I am exactly the same way. In my mind my blog is fantastic, witty, even funny at times. When it comes right down to it, I have huge gaps and sometimes I can do no more than post a song to fill in the blanks.
