Scarily Do-able...

I have some deep stuff to share with ya'll, but it just doesn't seem to be making its way from my mind to my fingers. Must not be time yet :)

So....today I am:
  • excited about the lovely shade of yellow that I will be painting my kitchen...tomorrow! YAY!
  • glad that for the most part, my house is much, MUCH easier to pick up than it was pre-organizational tangent. Good news.
  • Pondering our newest Ladies Bible Study called Living Beyond Ourselves by Beth Moore. We started last night, and I am so looking forward to living beyond myself.
  • which leads me to something so FAR beyond myself I swore I'd never in my right mind consider it...half marathon. HALF, not the whole shebang. 13.1 miles...still sounds terrible doesn't it?!? I printed off a customized training schedule according to how much we currently run and guess what? It looks do-able. Scarily do-able. All of me needs to be living beyond my own abilities and limitations, and instead relying on the power I have, in me, through the Holy Spirit.
  • Missing my comfort zone a little...
  • eating Wheat Thins...why do those little crackers have to be so tasty?!?

Seriously, I gotta wrap this up...my boringness today is...welll...boring me :)

  1. Must be a boringness day everywhere. I blame it on the weather here. Gray & dull. Oh well, there's always decluttering to do! LOL!

  3. In regards to Wheat Thins...a most delightful treat...one that I can still manage eating 'carefully' with my braces. Did you know of the Wheat Thins evil Partner in Crime? Laughing Cow cheese? Oh-so-good. My favorite is Light Garlic & Herb. One really NEEDS the other. Becareful of this dynamic duo. One nice thing is that the cheese is in a neat little single-serve, foil wrap. I can usually stop after a handful of WT and one cheese. (Emphasis on usually.)

  4. Misty: I have a running partner, I'd NEVER get up and do it if it weren't for her waiting outside my door :)

  5. DO the mini!!! You will LOVE the feeling of accomplishment when you are done! I am soooo not a runner, but I am MAKING myself into one...I have never felt better about myself then when I finished. I have done it twice now. The first time, not that great, wasn't able to run the whole thing...second time, ran the whole thing and shaved 48 minutes off my time! Just be prepared for the PAIN the next day! Totally worth it though! :)

  8. RUN FORR-EST RUN!!!
    Okay, I couldn't resist. I can't even imagine running a mile. UNO. I can't make it a block before these buns of...well NOT steel, start acheing and quaking.
    SO YOU GO GIRL! I'm so excited for you. And to see the yellow kitchen?
    Have you ever looked up what colors make you feel what? I really want to know the color that makes you sleepy for all of our bedrooms and the one where you want to put down the sweets, for MY kitchen!

  9. A marathon is probably the definition of living beyond myself. :) One day, I might just be able to do it. I can hope.

    You are the fastest organizer in the world.

  12. Ok, so for the last 3 months I have contemplated doing a half. I would love to, but the chicken in me is scared.
    An online friend has offered to "coach" me....oh my. Then I'd really have to be commited.
    Wheat Thins are w/o a doubt addictive little suckers. I've polished off an entire box w/o realizing it before. Yikes.

  13. A 1/2 marathon...go for it! That sounds like fun. Perhaps I'll needt to put that on my long term goal list! Good luck with your training!

  19. "Living Beyond Yourself" is one of my favorite Beth Moore studies. I've done it twice -- or maybe three times. I can't remember now.

    Also, I have to say: Run, Sarah! Run!

    :-) Enjoy your weekend.
