Yesterday, we had our first snow of the season. Almost 5 inches of fluffy fun! I’m not actually that excited about it, but I am excited that it should mostly melt off over the weekend.
I walked barefoot in the snow for good luck yesterday, when it was still fresh. I’m sure I learned this from a Vox peep, perhaps it was Lauri but I might be making that up. I’m not superstitious, really. It just seemed worth a try.
I started running again this week. It feels great. My knees are pretty much healed. Running gives me the energy to deal with stuff. It makes me happier and it even helps my back pain. It feels like blasphemy to say it, but it is even better than chocolate. It is not a cure for procrastination, though. I am moving forward and a glacial pace and it is a struggle not to give up just because I am stuck in Miao Town longer than I would like.
Sprocket is so adorably round. He doesn’t worry about accomplishing goals or making anything of his life because he is simply purrfect and he knows he will end up where he wants, and he knows that it is the journey that matters, not the destination. I can learn a lot from Sprocket.
