Late Night Thoughts

I spent all day in Ithaca today listening to flute auditions and then grading an evening recital.  It is now 11:30, and I just got home, but am too wired from my drive to go to bed even though I am absolutely exhausted.  I know if I go straight to bed I will just lie there for half an hour or so before I can actually fall asleep.  So instead, I will process some thoughts from the day here on the blog and THEN I will go to sleep.

  • For some reason I have been thinking a lot lately about the things I love.  One of them is when I see a man, any man, holding a small child.
  • Thinking about the things I love leads me to think about the things that drive me crazy, like the ladies in the pool who don't want to get their hair wet.  Really?  You are in a pool...of water...that is likely to get you wet when you get in it.  Don't want to get wet?  Don't get in the pool.
  • Both of these lists will eventually become posts in their own rights, if I ever get around to it. In the meantime, though, I am enjoying the thinking.  I'm not really sure which list is more entertaining to me...
  • Starting tomorrow, yes in just a few short hours, I have got to do something major about the nutrition hole I fell into this week.  (Read about Chapter 3 here.)  I haven't decided what it will be or if I will share on the blog.  Part of me just wants to do it without making a big deal about it.  The other part of me wants to put it out there for accountability.  Still deciding.
  • I aqua-jogged for 50 minutes straight today.  I think that counts as impressive.  Especially when I think about it at 11:37 p.m.
  • I sometimes like to think about the days when I stayed up late on the weekends and did crazy things, but the fact of the matter is, I was never really that crazy.  I never really stayed up that late, and when I did I was really, really tired.  Sometimes I wish I had a little more crazy in me.
  • Some of my flute students tried to convince me to go to Zumba with them.  Yeah...I don't do Zumba.  In my defense, I have tried it once, so don't say, "you should just try'll love it."  No.  I get embarrassed watching other people do Zumba.  No Zumba for this trimommy, thank you very much.
  • I counted this morning only 5 weeks left until the first day of spring.  Hope springs eternal...
  • I'm in the mood for a very long run...if only my feet would cooperate with that.
  • If I had a bottle of wine right now, I would definitely have a glass, but then I would stay up even later.  However, my thoughts my be even more interesting than they are right now.
That is all.


  1. I agree on the Zumba thing. Did it once, and it was more than enough for me! It lacked structure. Coming from a dance/colorguard background I need a lot more direction than they provided at Zumba. I've swim-bike-run, I don't need Zumba!

  2. Oh man... that is the quote of the decade from your blog... "I get embarrassed watching other people doing Zumba." Bwaaahahahahahaha!

    As a father of five, I am often holding children, and trying to keep them from burning down the house, killing each other, and speak with their inside voice.

  3. I am not really a Zumba kind of person either but then I don't really do group classes either.

    I with you and the women that won't get their hair wet, what is up with that?

  4. This past week stunk for me and nutrition, too. Heck, let's just add training to that list.

    What annoys me more than the ladies not wanting to get their hair wet, are the ladies who wear bottles of perfume to the pool. That way, when I roll to breathe, I get to eat it. I'd rather just smell any BO they might be trying to cover.

  5. Aqua jogging for 50 minutes sounds extremely impressive! And I fell asleep on the couch at 8:45 last night. *sigh* A little more crazy sounds good to me too... :)

  6. Wow 50 minutes of aqua jogging is impressive for sure!!

    I fall into that nutrition hole more often than I would like to admit. Good luck.


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
