A Good Kind Of Busy

Often December is a slower month for me at work. Not the case this year…but I am not complaining one bit. I have a job and a good one at that.

On Monday my 16 year old joined me for our Monday Night PUB run. We met at 6pm and moments later we are all off to run our 3 mile route through the beautifully lit streets of down town. And like any other run my son and I had the best time. The conversations are priceless. Mainly I just listen to him and the miles pass by before no time at all.

Tonight is our local night ride from a bike shop not far from our house. Temps are set to start at 41 degrees and end at 35 degrees before the ride is over. The dinner together following makes freezing your butt off worth it.

Yesterday Scott said he never knows what our plans are and that I wait until the last minute to inform him. This is true. I put them in my calendar and I just somehow thinks he knows. So I sent him a short list:

Thursday – 12-10 / RideOn Night ride at 6pm

Friday – 12-11 / Dinner and Cookies with the Delaney’s (our house)

Saturday – 12-12 / Mel’s Parade at 12noon

Sunday – 12-13 / Winter League Ride at 10am from Heritage Park

Sunday – 12-13 / Coffee with Eric and Jackie at Starbucks early evening

Monday – 12-14 / Monday Night Pub Run 6pm

Thursday – 12-17 / RideOn Night Ride at 6pm

Saturday – 12-19 / Family Christmas Party at Michelle’s (not sure of time)

Sunday – 12-20 / Winter League Ride at 10am from heritage Park

I will not tell you his response other than to say I think he wants to go back to knowing things at the last minute…lol

I really think your relationship with your sons is awesome! You are one busy lady. If I was Scott, I wouldn't want to know the schedule!

That's too funny - my hubs always says the same thing.

But then when I tell him things in advance, he forgets anyway. So... I usually just tell him at the last minute. ;)

Enjoy the ride & dinner!

Your gym deal beats mine...unless my wife comes with me but then we need the kids club and...ok you win ;-)

Jay always forgets if I tell him in advance anyway, so I just go with last minute too. Funny though :) Enjoy!
