Butt Kick

It’s time. Time to move past the dreary fog of the past year. To push ahead. No more excuses. “Get off your derriere,” as my mother would say. Looking at the image in the mirror, I like what I see but not the wrapping its in. “You can do it!” I tell myself.

Passing the sign everyday. GYM. Get yourself moving! It’s time.

Four mile runs? Wow! What happened? My inner self tells me it’s still possible. My outer self groans with the movement of each tree trunk as I drag them down towards the first .10 mile. Wow! What happened? “You can do it!” I remind myself.

Slowing to a fast paced walk, I am resigned to the reality of starting over. But…I will do it!

As a teacher of sixth graders, ma special place is my classroom; my home-away-from-home. My first home I share with my husband, our dog Quincy, two cats, and my tortoise friend, Misha. I also have been blessed with a horse named Arjay. We have three adult children and five grandchildren, the joy of our lives. Life is good. I am an equestrian, a writer, a reader, a gardener, and I repurpose furniture.
