caught in a whirlpool

Monday, July 11, 2011

I am moving in circles. Do you ever feel that way? You want to make forward motion, but you keep going around and around? This month has been that way. I had to get the boat ready. We were a month and a half late getting it in the water; it is in the water now.
I am getting ready for our trip to Toronto next week for vacation. So many things to get done, and not enough hours in the day. Work is crazy. I have 6-8 kids here this week... Going deep sea fishing on Saturday, and preparing to leave for my trip on Monday on Sunday.
I talked with a friend this week about how to get the family to help more because i feel like I am drowning, never catching up. Why do I have such control issues that i can not delegate the work with two able teenage daughters? Am I destined to be a martyr?
I have been taking care of my foot. I have gone for therapy for several weeks, but I still have pain. I think it has to do with my weight being higher than it was the last time I had plantar fasciatis. I know what I need to do to remedy this, lose weight. der.
So this is my agenda. Get through this week. Next week find some time for swimming and walking.
When I get back I will post my 7 week training schedule for my crazy tri with Amy.
I do not expect to run the running portion of the tri. This should be interesting.
The power of a woman when she puts her mind to something.

Pray for me friends. No more running in circles.

    Ah I struggle with delegation myself at times. Sometimes it just seems easier, quicker, etc when I do it myself. I'm getting better but I have to work at it.

    Take care of that foot. That sort of pain can really make you weary. It just takes so much time to heal.

    Best wishes,

    It'll all work out Jeanne - I'll be here when you are ready and have time!!! Delegate, delegate, delegate!!! (not to me, though, ok? teehee) The water in the lake this year has been PERFECT!!! Right temp and really just a touch of weeds (none where I swim), I hope you will join me there. HUGS!

    I know what you mean. I feel the same way lately! So much going on and it makes it so hard to do anything!! I hope you find a nice balance.

    Sorry your foot is still hurting! Are you having a friend run that part of the tri for you? Just curious! Have a great day girlie! Feel better!!!

    Delegation seems to come so hard to most of us, controlling comes so easily. But just think how much easier you can breathe with some help, even if it's not perfect.

    I will pray for you tonight. I have had plantar in the past...dang that is painful.

    I hope you have a great vacay. My family leaves Monday. I am leaving Sunday to get the condo set up. Hey, we will be gone the same week...too funny.

    Hope you can relax and "chill" out and give your foot the rest it needs. Take the walking slow and enjoy the swimming. We are heading to Bass Lake and Yosemite so I hope to get alot of swimming and walking/hiking in.

    I've been running in circles lately myself and I am hoping the week away will give me a chance to break the cycle of defeat.

    See you soon and have a wonderful time with your family.
