Post away...

I'm glad we get another shot at Monday.  That means life continues. 

My school is having a "slime fest" tonight, a fundraiser sponsored by our PTO.  Kids have been donating money for particular teachers to be "slimed."  I'm not sure of all the details tonight, but we all have t-shirts printed up and wearing them today for the occasion.

I ran 8 miles this morning.

5-6ish miles PW this afternoon after Meals On Wheels.

And, please excuse for posting a ,non-ruuing message, but it a good read about importance of life:

Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, died a billionaire.  Here are some of his last thoughts and words:

"I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.  In others’ eyes, my life is the epitome of success.  However, aside from work, I have little joy.  In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I have become accustomed to.  At this moment, I am on my sick bed, and recalling my life.  I realize that all of the recognition and wealth in which I took so much pride, have become meaningless in the face of my impending death.

You can employ someone to drive a car for you, and to make money for you, but you cannot employ anyone to bear illness for you.  Material things, when lost, can be found, but the one thing, that can never be found when it is lost, is your health and eventually your life itself.

When a person goes into the operating room, he realizes that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading, "The Book of Healthy Life".
Whatever stage in life we are at currently, in time we all face that day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse and love for your friends.  Treat yourself well, and cherish others.

As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $3,000.00 or a $30.00 watch is not important.  The time is the same.  Whether we carry a $300.00 or $30.00 wallet/handbag, the contents are the same.  Whether we drink a bottle of $100 or $10 wine, the hangover is the same.  Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3,000 sq. ft., the loneliness is the same.  Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down, you go down with it.

You will come to realize that true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Therefore, treasure your buddies, old friends, brothers and sisters.  Chat often, laugh, sing songs with them.  Talk about north-south-east-west, or heaven & earth.  That is true happiness.”

Six Undeniable Facts of Life
1. Don't educate your children to be rich.  Educate them to be happy, so when they grow up they will know the value ofthings, and not just their price.
2. "Eat your food as your medicines, otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food."
3. The one who loves you will never leave you for another, because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he, or she, will find that one reason to hold on.
4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human.
5. You are loved when you are born.  You will be loved when you die.  In between, only YOU are in charge of your life.
6. If you just want to walk fast, then walk alone.  However, if you want to walk far, then walk together.

The Six Best Doctors
1. Sunlight
2. Rest
3. Exercise
4. Diet
5. Self Confidence
6. Friends"

Happy Monday!   I started mine with friends at the animal shelter.  It is Spring Break so there were a few extra volunteers making it an easy morning.  The weather is gross and continues to trend at 30 degrees below normal.  2 days of snowy rain and then maybe, just maybe we can get a sunny day in the low 50's. 

I sure enjoyed the Kansas/Duke game yesterday.  I wasn't pulling for either team so it was just pure enjoyment.

Time to hit the shower - I smell like used kitty litter.  Yoga, arms, and abs after that.  Enjoy this last March Monday everyone.

I was the same about Duke-Kansas.  Lots of excitement here about Villanova (35 miles up the road).

I woke up early, did some of my morning chores and then went for a 3.6 mile PW with my friend.  We changed our route a tad and saw things from a different perspective.  And we ran into a friend of mine from church.

Nice sunny day.  But the rains are scheduled to come on late Tuesday, early Wednesday; we shall see.

Tomorrow we plan to see "I Can Only Imagine."   Several of my friends have seen it and they enjoyed it.

Enjoy your Monday!

My 16 y.o., who normally only likes Action and Superhero movies, said "I Can Only Imagine" is one of the best movie's he's ever seen.
Parent - By oncearunner [us] Date 2018-03-26 12:55 PM
Well that is a good endorsement coming from a 16 year old!
Parent - - By OldAndInTheWay Date 2018-03-26 12:45 PM
