It's becoming a rough week.

I should always go with my instincts. On Sunday, when I was looking forward at my week, I realized it was going to be a tough week. There are things going on and I knew by Wednesday I'd be tired. Then, Monday night, I had myself a rethink and decided it wouldn't be as bad as I thought. Well, guess what?? It's shaping up to be as bad as I thought. The worst part is, it's not any one thing that's bad, it's a bunch of little things that have to be dealt with and they piss me off and create stress and ugh!!!

So, basically the alarm went off this morning, I pulled the covers over my head and rolled over. No way. Plus it's been really freaking cold here in the morning!! Really cold.

I have a whole lot of things rolling around in my head right now that I just don't feel like getting into. I know I haven't been commenting much on the blogs and I apologize, I just can't seem to find something to say. Also, I feel like such a slacker. Everyone is running, biking, swimming, getting ready for their season to start and I don't have a season this year. This year is totally focused on weight loss and base building so I feel like a lazy bum compared to most of you guys :)

Also, you know what's been on my mind?? In 11 days I turn 48. Now generally age doesn't bother me. But for some reason this one is causing me to really think. Honestly, when I was in my 20's I couldn't imagine being 48. Also, being so freaking spontaneous and childish, I didn't plan like I should have. Plus, I'm really thinking about my life. There are things I want to do and I'm not sure working a 9-5 job is part of that. I want to spend time at home. I want to have the time to train and exercise when I want. I want to travel. I realize now, as I approach 50, that there's so much more to do in life. I don't want to be tied to a job in a building. I want to find a job that will go with me when I need to move, but that will pay well. So that's a lot of the reason behind the paid posts and stuff. I'm searching. Up until this point in my life I've just kind of traveled along the path of life. I didn't really search out things they kind of fell in my lap. Now I'm on the quest. I think I finally know what I want and I'm trying to find the way to make it happen. 48 is still pretty young. I have plenty of time to change my path in life, but that's why I want to do it now. I don't want to be 68 saying "I wish......"

Okay, it's awfully early in the morning to be dwelling on such deep thoughts. I had better get my butt into the shower and off to work or that 9-5 job will be gone sooner than I want it to be :)

I know what you mean by not planning my path in life, I just let it happen. I started a few years trying to plan a new career at least and am still following that path for 2 more years. God, hate going back to school but it's necessary.
I know they say, we regret more the things we didn't do in life rather than the things we did. I would love to travel more too but it's not feasible now besides a trip to vegas or close by nowadays.
Hope your week is going better soon!!

I think its fairly common to be having all these doubts about your life at this point. I went through he same thing, and actually it took about 3 years to sort through. My mom died when I was 48 and I was instantly turned into a caretaker for my dad, even while my kids were then almost all out on their own. Also, I was going through a divorce and was going through some major financial setbacks, so it was a rough year for me too! You will get through this, and keep in mind that we're here for you! I didn't have all you guys back then or I might not have turned to some destructive behavior I did at the time (heavy drinking). Reach out, we'll be here!

And now it's Sunday

 We have one more week and then spring break. The break will be nice.  Yesterday we went to the Oddities & Curiosities Expo. It looked i...
