As I have mentioned before, I was a summer camp counselor for several summers (and even met Craig during one of those summers. . . . a little good ol’ camp romance). One of the activities I would do at the end of the day with my campers was to have them share their “highs” and “lows” from the day.
Everyone went around the circle sharing a “highlight” from their day and something that was more of a low point. (Some refer to this activity as “roses” and “thorns.”)
Highlights of my day:
* My run this morning!
Distance: 8 miles
Time: 67 minutes
I ran a splendid 8 miles this morning! I took yesterday off because of my cold, and I’m so glad I did because I felt 10x’s better today!
* My husband shaved his beard for me!
Craig and I were listening to the radio yesterday, and the morning DJs were talking about recent study that was done about what things turn women off. Number one: facial hair—specifically beards.
I am definitely in this boat, but I’m curious to know what the other ladies out there think?!?!
Apparently this was in a recent Real Simple magazine. I know what #1 – 4 are, but I’m curious to know what the other turn-offs are, so if anyone knows, please share!
#1 – beards
#2 – pierced ears
#3 – comb-overs
#4 – cowboys
* Our weekly coffee date this morning.
I love when we are able to sit down and have a good, quality conversation. Today’s topic of conversation: our jobs and where we see ourselves going.
* Only 10 more days of school left, baby!!! I feel like I am holding on by a string these last few days!!
* My 45 minute weight lifting session after school!
Things I’m torn about:
I am not sure how much I like leftovers.
I really like the convenience of leftovers, but they don’t always seem that appetizing the second time around.
* The amount of daylight we currently have.
Sunrise: 5:41 a.m.
Sunset: 10:14 p.m.
Don’t get me wrong, I am totally in love with the sunshine and longer days, but I just wish it didn’t look like 4 p.m. when I was going to bed at 9 p.m.
This picture was taken around 7:30 p.m.
Sad/disappointing things about my day:
* My afternoon classes were quite difficult today and caused a lot of stress for me today.
Other than that it was a pretty decent day. And the fact it is Friday tomorrow makes it all the better!
What was your “high” and “low” today?
