I ran today. Most days it makes me feel energized. I was kind of going through the motions. I did it even though I didn't really want to though, so I'm still proud of that! Some days I love it and other days I'm totally over it. I guess that's normal. Josh, on the other hand, is burning through couch to 5K like a champ. I'm really proud at how well he's doing. He loves it. I'm going to see if I can find a 5k for him to run in the fall.

This is his last week before school starts. The summer went by extremely quickly, like it always does! It's been extremely hot and smokey here again this summer. I'm kind of starting to hate Boise summers. It's 100 degrees every day and August is so smokey from all the forest fires that they tell everyone with asthma to stay in the house. So between it being so hot that I can't stand to be out there and so smokey that I can't breathe, I end up spending a lot of time in the house and that gets old. I feel bad for Clarissa because she hasn't been to the park or anything lately. We just can't be out very long.

So basically, I'm really looking forward to fall. Every year at about this time I start to get really antsy for fall! I look forward to being able to to outside again without the heat and the smoke. I love it when it starts to get chilly again. I love the leaves and the crisp air and the sweaters and the pumpkin patches. Someone gave me a cinnamon pumpkin candle recently and it smells like fall. I just keep sniffing it, wishing we could fast forward a month or so and get past the smoke and the heat and into fall. I'm ready for it.

I think that's why I've been feeling kind of bored and antsy lately. I'm busy getting the kids back to school so I've had a lot to do, I've just been feeling restless. I need...something. I'm not sure what. A new hobby? A new haircut? A new book to read? Something. I just feel like I need something different and new to get excited about but I can't quite put my finger on what. I get this way sometimes. Usually it's at the end of a long winter and I guess this year it's because we're at the end of a too hot and smokey summer. I'm ready to move on to something else. I think I'm ready to get back into the school her routine. Maybe once Josh is back in school and Clarissa starts preschool and I'm back in my normal routine I'll feel a little more settled again.

So basically this blog post is weird and whiny and all over the place, lol. Are you still reading or did everyone quit two paragraphs ago? I don't blame you if you did. :)

So today I'll find something to do. Maybe I'll pull out my craft box and make some new hair clips for Clarissa. Maybe I'll browse Amazon and find an amazing new book to get lost in. Maybe I'll spend some time on Pinterest and find something new and amazing to make for dinner tonight. It's time to discover something new. I'd better get to work.
