Shrove Tuesday. Mardi Gras.
Testing begins today. We hope that there will be reason to celebrate when we are done tomorrow. Trust me when I tell you that we will skip the beads.
I'm giving up caffeine. That doesn't make me feel like celebrating much. I really like coffee and Diet Pepsi. I'm tapering off. I know my blood pressure will thank me, but that still doesn't make me feel like celebrating.
This morning I ran two miles. The weather wasn't the awful stuff predicted. I'm running two miles today and Thursday, and then I'm planning a three mile run over the weekend. If running two miles starts feeling a little easier, now that would be reason to celebrate!
Pancakes on Easy Street tonight. So...it is going to be a fat Tuesday. Maybe a fat Wednesday, too. There's a reason people fast on Ash Wednesday.
