Time Slips Away
We were in Lansing Easter weekend. My brother and his fiance were in town and had yet to meet Sophia. In fact this was going to be the first time they met Sophia. And the trip went well, we made good time coming and going and it was just a very pleasant trip.

Now nothing happened during the trip but and image has stuck in my head since then.

Saturday Debbie took Jack out to the park. I had been taking pictures of them outside and I filled up this memory card on this one camera. I watched as they walked up Pebblebrook and towards the elementary school.
Jack looked so big, so tall next to Debbie. Not quite grown up, but not the little guy that needs so much protection. I just sat there, standing in their yard, watching them walk up the road. It made me think of a song lyric, from a song that I put on a mix CD in 2002:

Right through your fingers
Time slips away
Oh, this feeling lingers

Jack turns two a week from Wednesday. Two.

Time slips away.

Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack, a crack in everything

That’s how the light gets in.

My daughter...
Sophia Lucille was born tonight at 2.12am.
21 inches long, 8lb, 7oz.

I am home now and I am in shock, Debbie is at the hospital with her Mom and Sophia.
I am home and in shock.

One kid I have done, how do you handle two? How do you pay attention to two, how do you treat two?

I'm scared out of my brain that this is going to be so hard.

I love my little son so much and he's growing up every day. I am so afraid that this will be hard, being there for the both of them. Top it off with student teaching at the beginning of next year and I am double scared that it will be so hard for Jack and for me.

An odd way to end a long day.

YouTube Monday
Waiting to go to the radio for my show(bleh) and I am trying to cheer myself up via the ol You Tube.
And this is what I have been watching to cheer me up.

My God how cool do they all look...

(i looked to the future it makes me cry...)

I wish that I was 20 living in Acid House UK. But then again I wish for a lot of things.

For Britney...
They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because she was making it with sisters and brothers
And everyone else, and all others
Like cheap officers who would stand there and
Flirt in front of me

They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because of the things she did in the streets
In the alleys and bars, no she couldn't be beat
That miserable rotten slut couldn't turn anyone away

Run Sucka!
well...got back from the Sunday run of this 5K program. 2 miles. I haven't ran more than 1.1 miles in over four years. I crapped out big time on the second mile, walking for a great deal of it, so I think that is not good.
Now mind you yesterday I spent all day on a school field trip, which included a 2 mile hike in Empire along with a lot of time on my feet. The last stage of the tour was a stop at the Sleeping Bear Dunes and on a whim I climbed up the dunes. It was not all the way to the tippity top but I made it up there and goddamn was that an effort!
Now on the program I'm working on here Saturday is a rest day, but I was out and on my feet all day. Then today I woke up with a thunderstorm (blessed rain!) and then I went to class, so I have been up for a long time, I took a nap and have been in and out of tiredness ever since.
But I sucked it up, said fuck it I have to do it, and set off on the run. Not a bad little loop either, but I need to work on my endurance. Bleh.
So this week all told I have ran for 4 miles, 52 minutes logged out there exercising.
According to the Runners World site I burned 402 calories on this past run. Of course before hand I ate a bunch of pizza. Bleh.
Quick request for all four of my readers: can you think of songs with Run in the title? I'm just thinking about putting some on the iPod and I can't think of too many, so if anyone can think of anything please post it here..
I'll start

Spiritualized - Run Run Run
Last Poets - Run Nigga
Moby - Run On

Well the running program continues...I'm sure all four of you are geeked to hear that...
Ran for 12 minutes, ran a little bit longer tonight but unlike Tuesday I only pooped out once.
Tuesday I think that I crapped out and ended up walking four times on the last leg of the course.
The next run is Sunday, which I think is a 2.5 mile run. I have class as well Sunday so I will have to figure out when to run...of course this means nothing to any of you four, but I am just thinking on my feet here.
Tonight's run felt pretty good, I feel like i paced myself pretty well and like I mentioned there was only one stop.
So yeah, just basically and exercise post. I ate my dinner about 45 minutes before the run and afterwards I drank a couple of protein drinks as the running book that i have mentiones that after a run one should eat a ton of carbs and protein. I took more protein than carbs tonight.
A week from Saturday I am going to Lansing to walk in a 5K for the head injury rehab place we checked my brother into so many years ago.
I have my little Runners World online training log thing which is a nice way to keep up on the exercise.

Im rambling here. I have a long weekend ahead of me. Classes will end this weekend and then within a few weeks start back up. Where has the year gone. Shit, where has the summer gone? I think about this little nineteen pound baby who is asleep in the other room, the love of my life, and I can't remember last spring, last summer(well maybe not), last fall. Everything before April 29th is a blur. By and large.
And now I am older, married with children and watching Curb Your Enthusiasm.

I know that life is developing, moving forward, but sometimes I don't feel like I really know who I am. That sounds pretty grey area but who I am and who I was keep diverging. Strange feeling. And it is complicated by my son.
Just the other day I was holding him in my arms, looking at his sweet little face smiling back at me.
When he is my age I will be 66. What will I think about then? And when he is 33 and I am 66 his Grandmother, if she is still alive, will be possibly 90.

so again that crazies passed.
i've been skint and selling Lps on eBay, including my Dylan bootleg box Ten of Swords. I had a ton of it recorded onto CD so I didn't feel as bad(tho I did) seling the set.
Well this morning when I went to finish recording it my CD recorder broke...so that bummed me out

What did get rid of the crazies was the fact that I started running tonight, made myself do it...
.95 miles, twelve minutes
stopped a few times but felt good and feel good now...I forget what it means to feel good...
6:51 pm
Arrgh....bad crazies...more like, real angries...
gant find my car keys, it is 89 degrees here and the house is a humid 82 degrees
cant move without sweating but still planning on starting the 5K training tonight
and finally a story
The other evening I was at the local grocery store up here, Tom's to be exact, and as I was leaving with my two six packs of Tea this 40ish guy walks up to me.
First thing he does is try to take my bags, not forcibly mind you, just reaches out and tries to take them.
I immediately say Nope, and walk towards the car, with this guy walking next to me talking about fresh air and the air in "South Nebraska"
I tell him I've never been to South Nebraska and then I open up the passenger door and toss in the tea.
This guy keeps walking, pas the car, and then he stops as I round around to the driver's side.
"Excuse me, that is the wrong car!"
Don't think that it is guy, and I unlock it and hop into the seat. The rest of the car was locked, which was good cos this high motherfucker tried to open the passenger door!
I started it up and just took off, when I got to 14th street I looked back and he was standing in the same spot in the parking lot.

When I got home I told the wife and she called the store, I spoke with them and the girl on the phone knew who he was as he was in the store telling her someone stole his groceries and car. I assured her thay they were in fact my bags and my car.
Wonder what happened to him?
