Why exactly are bunnies associated with Easter? Why are eggs associated with Easter? Why are eggs associated with bunnies? And what is that duck doing in the picture?????
For all of you that believe, Happy Easter. For you that don't, too bad :)
Yesterday I worked for Nutro and we go into pet stores and basically tell people about our food. Well, I could not believe the number of people buying bunnies for their kids. Do people not understand that this is a living creature that they are now responsible for and must take care of for the rest of it's life??? And to get it for a child??? Oh please!!!! Anyway, it was really ticking me off.
So I don't do the church thing anymore. I was reading another blog and the person commented that they don't believe in God. I stopped and thought how sad for them. Now I don't go to church because I have issues with formalized religion. But that in no way means I don't believe. And I believe how you live your life is way more important than how you spend your Sundays, or Saturdays, of Friday nights, or whatever.
I was supposed to go to my marathon clinic this morning but I decided not too. There are a couple of reasons why. First, I did not feel like getting out of bed. I was up and down all night with the dogs (I don't know what was bothering them but something was) and I just was in no mood to get up at o'dark 30 to drive 45 minutes, to run with the probably 3 people who would show up, just to drive home and clean house. So I rolled over and went back to sleep for a while.
Secondly, my lower back has really been bothering me this week. I keep getting shooting pains down my leg (sciatica, I know) and my leg will go weak. The low back feels really weak and sore. This is actually how my back felt when I weighed 225 lbs. I stepped on the scale this morning, I'm not back there :) So I'm not sure how my running will go. I don't want to slow the group down if I'm not able to keep up.
Finally, I did my strength training yesterday for the first time in a week and My Butt Hurts!!! I may have over did it just a little, cause man my butt is sore!!!!
While lying in bed thinking of all these things, I decided to stay home, go for my run here, if it turns into a walk because of the back that's okay, and get back on my running/weight training schedule. So there! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Do or do not....... Excuses are not acceptable :)
UPDATE: I was just cruising the net and read that bunnies were the symbol of fertility (I can see why) and new life in the spring. This is from pre-christian beliefs. See, you can't tell me man didn't put religion together.
