What a strange week. I had Tuesday off because it was Election Day. This is something new that a lot of cities and towns are now doing. After Sandy Hook, it just didn’t seem right to let strangers come and go into our schools, so now we have a random day off, And …. I am super relieved about it. Tuesday felt like Saturday and Sunday all in one. Very weird. Not that I’m complaining-it just throws me a little because i’ve been waking up all week, confused as to what day it actually is!
I just have to say this.
I hate the time change.
(I hate it so much that sentence above even got underlined, italicized,
And bolded. Now that is hate!) I’m not a fan of darkness, how it gets dark at 4:30, winter running, layers, and ice.
(once November hits, this is a real possibility)
I would work year round for a beautiful sunny climate and not even care because it is beautiful and sunny. The darkness makes me feel confined and it really drives me nuts. The sun is up an hour earlier than it used to be, true, but it doesn’t help that I’m driving home in nearly complete darkness. Lots of runs done on the treadmill. And that makes me super duper grumpy.
I’m also not the hugest fan of the holidays. I love my family, I love getting together, but I can’t stand the pressure of Christmas. (can this post get any more negative?) and I’m sorry but I flat out refuse to buy a single Christmas decoration until after thanksgiving. It’s like Christmas is rushed here and life is on the fast track:Santa was already at the mall last weekend! Come on.
I also despise dressing for winter running. I much prefer shorts and tanks, or even t’s. There was one day this week I broke out the short pants (because I’m still refusing to wear long pants) and even that hot me all fired up and angry. I know that seasons are one of the beautiful things about New England, but man winter really grinds my gears.
One thing that is going to keep me motivated is running through it all because I am about to officially register for my next marathon. Sometimes just clicking the button gets me motivated to go out and run! (I’m not putting my next race on here until it’s officially registered for!)
This weekend I’m looking forward to a lot of family time! We rotate “Sunday Funday” houses with my husbands side of the family, and this weekend happens to be our turn. I can’t wait! And we get to see my family tonight, I can’t wait!
I hope you all have a great weekend! Whatcha up to?
Anybody else particularly despise daylight savings time/winter?
