Let's Try This Again . . .

Oh, my goodness!  I can't believe it!  I'm finally able to load a picture.  WooHoo!!
This is what my days look like:
It's tax season and it's only going to get worse!  I do corporate taxes so the deadline is not April 15, but rather September 15 and then it can drag on until November 15 when the last state return has to be filed.  Usually everything is ready to go by Labor Day, but we've had some turnover the last couple of years and consequently I've had to work a bit harder than I'd like to!!  I had a nice 5 year run with a team that ran very smoothly.  For the past couple of years . . . not so much.  Every day is a new day with new problems.

Which is why I'd rather be doing this:
or this:
or this:

But, heavy sigh . . . for now, I must forge ahead with my day job and do my other fun activities when the sun has set and if I have any energy left.  My 58 day challenge was AWESOME!  Tomorrow I hope to post the first giveaway.  Today was Day 38 of my 2nd 58 day challenge.  I have run at least 1 mile every day for the past 38 days.  I don't think it was my most brilliant idea to start this challenge in the heat of summer, but I am enjoying the challenge of running in heat, wind and sometimes rain.  Hopefully I'll be primed when half marathon training begins in August.  Yowsers!

So, now that it looks like I'm back up and running, tomorrow I will take some pictures, post a giveaway and see if anyone's interested.  Thanks for playing along!

Ohh, the sight of you desk makes my brain hurt. It looks like mine, except that mine is covered with student essays. They are more fun to read than tax returns. But I'd rather be quilting too. I admire you for doing your new running challenge in the heat! Cheering you on! Pam
