This week, I joined a group on Facebook that is committed to walking or running 80 miles in the month of May, in honor of Mary’s journey to Elizabeth. As of Wednesday Moning, I have gone almost 11 miles (according to Nike+). Part of that was 1.5 miles while I waited for my 16 year-old’s soccer game to get started. I considered walking to and from Adoration (3.5 miles each way), but I’m worried about getting caught in the thunderstorms that are very likely at that time of day. I’ll have to strap on my running shoes and go around the block later, if I can. (That, without going into cul-de-sacs or past our block and back, is 1.5 miles!)
As my Worth Revisit post yesterday mentioned, this is our busiest time of year, and I’m grateful that I’m surviving it. I’ve managed to get both girls to activities simultaneously all week, with only one misstep caused by me leaving my ringer off on my phone and missing the call from my daughter to tell me dance was over. Only a week and a half left of soccer and dance, and then we’ll be slightly (but only very slightly) less insanely busy. (I have to wonder how my friends with 5, 6, and 7 children do this.)
I also have managed to get ahead in some of my regular writing at CatholicMom.com. I want to keep it up, though, because June looks to be almost as busy as May in some ways. There’s a lot of traveling and there’s theater camp for the kids, and I want to stay on top of things!
How about you? Share what’s going right in your corner of the world!
