It has been quite a week. Monday I went up to work early and ran a couple of miles in the park. Last year I had run to work a couple of days a week for most of the year. I don’t have a nice route to work anymore but driving up early and running in the park has been a good substitute. After the regular school day was done, we had auditions for our fall show followed by an open house and a short climbing session. I got back home around 9 on Monday.
Tuesday we did the same thing with auditions and then I went up and climbed with Autumn for a bit. Both of my arms were starting to gripe at me after this climb so I decided to take until Monday before I head back up to the climbing gym. Tyler told me some stories about a guy he used to climb with who pushed too hard, too fast and ended up getting injured and never climbing again. I don’t think I’m pushing it that hard but a few days off will do me good.
Wednesday went up early and ran a couple miles with Lauren and then took it easy instead of running with the whole social run pack. I was planning to get up Thursday and get some miles in and even though I didn’t really want to get up this morning, I did go and get 3 pretty quick miles. Must have been the cooler temperatures. We did callbacks this afternoon and had the show cast before 5:30. I drove from work over to pick up the kids for the weekend.
Sam was sick this morning so we weren’t sure if he was going to come tonight or not. I drove over to pick them up and was invited to come in and see the kids room. I haven’t really made a big deal out of it, trying to give my ex her space and time without imposing into her spaces. The kids really wanted me to see their room so it was good to get a chance to see their room. As things wind their way down to what the new normal will be, it’s been good to feel less anger coming through text messages and interactions.
I’m heading out to Cleburne this weekend to time a race, the kids are spending time with their grandparents on Friday night and Saturday during the day. I’ll pick them up Saturday evening and then make a nice breakfast for them, and probably some sourdough pizza there in the mix. I’ll have them next weekend too since we are on the 5-1 weekend cycle this month.
