Travel Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:27 am

Oh. My. Gosh. I can’t believe today is here! Both of my kids are packed up. Tonight they’ll spend the night with their grandfather (Zed) and great-aunt (Elle). Their dad will get them tomorrow afternoon, and they’ll spend the rest of the weekend with him, Sunday night included. He was a bit peeved when he found out that I wasn’t coming back till Monday. Tough shit I thought. *evil me*

My bags are (mostly) packed. I have a list of everthing else that needs to be put in the suitcases. Well, one suitcase, one carry-on bag. My running stuff is going with me in the carry-on. At least I’ll be able to run the race even if they lose my bags!

I’m so emotional today! I’ve already started crying twice! Get a grip Lass! But I’m smiling too. My energy feels up! I’m ready to tackle this! Now I just have to get through the plane ride…ugh!


  1. My daughter runs cross-country in her high school. Her motto is, “Never give up” & even if she’s dead last, she doesn’t stop.

    Good luck. Give it your best shot, and never give up!

  2. Just remember: Everything you will need for the weekend is in your dresser, and things you haven’t worn since you were 12 are in your bag. Your carryon will have 4 pairs of stilletto heels 😀

    Good luck running around.

  7. Crying, smiling, isn’t that a weird feeling? But it’s all good, have fun!

  8. *slaps Lass a few times in the face* C’mon, just think of it as another long Saturday run! One foot in front of the other. Rinse and repeat!
