Update on goals and other life stuff

First goal: Run a comfortable 3 miles.  After feeling like I was not improvig at all, I met a local runner on http://www.dailymile.com/ and she suggested I increase my overall workout time and continue with walking breaks as needed.  I started by increasing my running time to 40 minutes, and walking as needed.  Then the need for walk breaks decreased. The this past Wednesday, I was doing my usual 40 and after about a mile and a half I realized I felt good.  I finished 3.2 miles in 40 minutes with no walking.  Woo!

Second goal: Lean to play the guitar.  Specifically the song "Small" by JJ Heller. I'd like to play this at the camp I counsel at in June. Obviously, this goal will be on-going, but slowly I'm improving. I don't need to look at where my fingers are as much. But singing and struming a rhythm is proving to be a challenge.

Third goal: Lean to crochet. I haven't had the time to dedicate to this as much as the others. Or should I say choose to.  I can do it, I just hanven't makde anything yet. But I will. ;)

Lauren's Kindergarten registeration is coming up this week. I'm having a hard time bending my brain around that one. How is this possible, that I have a soon to be Kindergardner?  I have so many mixed emotions about this. I'm happy and excited for her. Happy that she is a healthy, growing child. Sad that my baby is growing up. Scared to send her into the "world". *sigh* this mom stuff is hard.
