Here we are once again staring at the day called Thursday, where on this blog we are encouraged to share three thoughts--three random or related or semi-related things. Whatever happens to be on your mind, anything at all.
Because there's no other way around it, I will go first.
1. Tonight the Mathews girls basketball team takes on Middlesex in a home match THAT WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO WIN. Sorry for the shouting, it's just that my daughter's basketball is about the only thing I feel passionate about these days.
2. I ran 8.6 miles yesterday, from Wayland Baptist Church to Salem United Methodist Church and back. Since I hadn't measured the distance in advance, I just told myself to run from one church to the other (and back) in the hopes that it would be at least six miles, which was my goal. When I clocked it with my car's odometer, I was shocked to learn I'd gone so far. Mind you, I have a smart phone that could have done this mapping for me. But thus far that smart phone's owner has not acquired the additional smartness required to use it to its full capability.
3. Thank goodness for Monday's Martin Luther King federal holiday. 2014 and the month of January have already worn me right
That's it from me. If you have one, two, three or more thoughts to share, please do. And thank you for doing so.
p.s. If you're local and are looking for something to do tonight, please come to the girls' basketball games at 6:00 (JV) and 7:30 (varsity) at the high school and cheer them on. I need help in the stands; it's not easy being an overly enthusiastic spectator.
