just humping my way through humpday

It’s hard to focus on writing something deep and meaningful (as ALL of my posts are, right?) when Andrew is giving me a glorious foot rub.  Sometimes he haphazardly smooths on the lotion, squeezes my heel a couple of times and calls it a day, but tonight he is blissfully distracted by ESPN and has been rubbing my feet for waaaay longer than normal.  I’m not about to call his attention to it.  Heh heh heh.

This morning I rose at an ungodly hour – FIVE A.M. – to babysit some neighborhood children for a few hours while their parents went to an adoption meeting thing.  And, as fate would have it, I got called to sub right in the midst of me refilling their juice cups and dreaming about getting back in bed after I put in my time (they were to be taken to their neighbor’s house around 8am).  I didn’t turn it down… girl’s gotta make some moolah.  I looked a mess though, let me tell you that.  I subbed in my sweats today folks.  Watch out.  I’m glad I did though, b/c I ended up being asked to sub the next two days in the library, which is my most fav place to sub.  Things have a way of working out.  Speaking of which, I went straight to the gym after school and ran* & did some weights instead of going straight home to bed.  It was rather painful, as my body was pretty much running on fumes at this point. But I was glad I did it.  I never regret exercising, even when it hurts.

…..And now Mayfield is licking all the lotion off my toes.

*Listen, let’s talk for a minute about a subject near and dear to my heart:  INDOOR TRACK ETIQUETTE.  To all you leisurely afternoon walkers out there:  you are like the slower cars on the interstate.  You know that sign that says “Slower Vehicles Keep Right”?  That applies to you on the indoor track.  Keeping with the interstate thing:  Cars going faster than you should pass on the left, am I right?  So please, when I am getting my jog on and I am coming up on you and your walking buddy, do not part the waters and force me to play some awkward version of red rover.  One of you needs to step behind (or in front) of the other and give me some room on the left to PASS YOU.  Kudos to you for walking – I myself enjoy a brisk stroll from time to time – but please, learn how to share the track.

I apologize for my rant, but it has been a recurring situation for a couple of weeks now.  Today I actually got so tired of saying “on your left” only to have these girls split down the middle, that I finished my cardio by running the stairs in the back of the gym.

In other news, apparently some of the students at the high school have caught wind of the news about us moving to Colorado.  Today, a couple of boys were asking me about it &  one of them said, “So does that mean we won’t ever have you as a sub again?”  And if I’m not mistaken (which I very well could be), he seemed the teensiest weensiest bit sad-ish.

They liiiike me, they really really liiiike me!  Pahahaha…. I kid myself sometimes.

Goodnight lovers.

    You sound like Julie F. when you say you’ve never regretted exercising.
