Easy 5

Today was an easy outdoor 5 miler on the Springwater Trail.  The weather was fairly cooperative (no hailstorms) so off I went.  No watch, no Garmin, no water, no real idea where I was headed… just the desire to get fresh air.  Perhaps my desire for fresh air was rooted in the fact that I had just driven home from Wilsonville in a car that smelled of vomit… you see on my way to take the girls to my mother’s for the weekend Olivia got sick in the car. So there I was in Wilsonville with a car and a child covered in vomit and the sudden realization that I don’t get a child-free night…bummer.  Paige helpfully spoke up from the back of the car “Well Olivia has a bag full of clothes ready for Grandma’s so at least she can change her clothes.”  Thanks for the silver lining honey…

Here’s the thing about life though, sometimes as thin as a silver lining may be, and in this case it was very thin, that is what you have to focus on. Life is full of vomit, but if you’ve got clothes to change into, well that’s something…
