Moe, for better or worse

This blog used to be called "one year in the life of a short fat runner"; then it was called "Am I a runner? you decide." I've decided running isn't the thing I need to talk about here...it'll come up for sure, but it's just one part of me, so I think I'll just call this blog: Moe, for better or worse.

T -1!!!! and a bit of kosmic connectivity

I leave tomw for Madison!!! Has a girl ever been happier to go to Wisconsin??? I think not. :)

I've gotten all of my laundry done and folded. I've found all my sports bras and 5 pairs of running socks. All of my undies are clean, and the shirts I want to pack are folded and laid out.

I've got to get bubblewrap, but I've got 16 beers to try to pack...

I still have to get to the market and I still have to get a pedicure, but those I can do later today.

Roberto and I are going to a counselor this afternoon to work on some issues we're having. He is struggling with the idea of this...but I know with someone to guide us, we can work out the problems we're having. I love him too much and won't go down without a fight! I hope it's not too exhausting though....

Now about that kosmic connectivity. A few things, best first. I've been looking everywhere for my lady bug socks. The ones the laundry gnome took. I wore those socks to run Philly to honor my mother who is dealing with chemo again for a cancer that isn't going to go away. I've talked about this before.

Well, Ma called me last night. She had her appt at oncology. They couldn't do her treatment this week since her blood counts were a little low, she'll have to go back next week. But she said, the CT scan shows...nothing. The cancer has been shrinking for a while, but now...there's nothing. It doesn't mean it's gone...but it does mean something. And that's very good news. Plus the neuropathy she's had in her feet is subsiding. She said they don't hurt anymore, but feel like she's walking on sandpaper, which, while sounding incredibly irritating, is a vast improvement over what she was experiencing before.

I was putting away my socks this morning, and guess what I found?

My lady bug socks. Right in the middle. On top.

Kosmic connectivity (and evidently, a kind-hearted Laundry Gnome).

No less good, but in a different realm, a friend and I have decided we've known each other in another time. Seems we're constantly telling each other something that the other knows already. I've often thought this isn't the first time I've lived a life, and so I'm often visited by ghosts from a past I can't quite recall. I remember places and experiences I've never had in this lifetime, but with a vividness that I can't believe I could have merely dreamed up.

I'd like to think there are people you crash into again and again, people you need in your life (lives?) to get through and that you eventually meet up again when you need each other.

I guess I was in need recently.

Kosmic connectivity.



Oh and have I mentioned I'm very excited to go to Madison this weekend????

Being excited about going to Madtown is nothing to be embarrassed about. It's a very cool place, which I can say after having lived there for 11 years.

I have laundry in the washer and it will go on the line after work. I also have half a bag packed. Running stuff, naturally. No real clothes yet.

I so understand this and feel exactly the same way at times!

Have fun this weekend, girlfriend!
