Running on Empty

Running into the Sun

Running on - running into the sun
But I'm running behind

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too

For the past two weeks, I've been running behind, barely running into the sun and running on empty! I'm fininshing up my second week of working an extra part-time job and filling in for another person who is on vacation. Tomorrow, Sunday marks the 14th day of long hours of running back and forth between my regular job and the part-time job and running blindly. Thankfully, I"m on vacation the upcoming week and looking forward to some down time. Time to sleep, breathe, detox, and catch up with friends and loved ones. Even Chulo has been missing me.

More importantly, I'm finishing up my recovery period from my foot surgery. Just this past Thursday, I had the pin taken out of my toe and yes, it did hurt but was not excrutiating. So, now it's just one more week of walking with the stupid shoe but for now the toe is just bandaged and I only have to wear a sock to protect the foot. So, by next Friday if you see a shoe floating down the bayou you'll know its mine! ;-)

Mood: Sleepy (ok, not really a mood but you get the point)

My favorite time of the to a sunrise but I haven't gotten to see to many of those lately. ;-( Title borrowed from song by 'Nadama & Shastro-A Reiki Offering' and I will have this photo in mind when I go in for my Reiki massage in the morning as I drift in and out of consciousness.

*Above title taken from the Gregorian Calendar for the numbers, 7-7-7.

*Many couples consider today a date with destiny as the rush of weddings are at an all time high. The NY Times had this interesting article, "That’s because the date — the almost numerically perfect 7/7/07 — is being sought after by couples around the country as the ideal day for a wedding". I found this to be quite hysterical... "Oddly, some numerologists aren’t sure what all the fuss is about. For most couples, this is not the most desirable wedding date for long-term bliss” said Daniel Hardt, a numerologist and owner of the Life Path Numerology Center in Indianapolis. The triple 7 can lead to miscommunication. Interactions between the partners is likely to be strained. Marriage is difficult enough to sustain without the added burden of a potentially troublesome anniversary date, he said." Sorry Eva & Tony, which by the way I am so sick of hearing about their wedding! UGH!

I found Wiki's description of 7 to be more interesting! Lots of fun filled facts for this lucky date. No trips to the casino here or down the aisle for me today. Just a day at home but feeling lucky nonetheless for all my blessings. ;-)
