O.K. i swear i'll give me little thoughts about my obsessive compulsiveness in the next post.

Today, i am thinking about my long drive to go see my daughter Allison. i haven't seen her since before Christmas and it's just been too long. It's one day really, i pick her up Saturday morning and drop her back on Sunday morning.

She'll be visiting for three weeks this summer and that will be the longest we have ever spent together. i'm not always confident that Allison really wants to spend anytime with me so i can get a little nervous before seeing her. Since she is almost 12, and nearly a teenager, i think she may begin to regret the weekends we do see each other, or the occasional weeks during the summer, because it takes time away from her friends, especially as she gets to be a teenager.

i may be able to spend some time running this weekend, in the old hometown. Not too much though, if i leave Lisa to play stepmom too long with Mack and Jimi (it's my blog, i'll spell his name anyway i choose [ 'Scuse me, while i Kiss the Sky]) things can get a little hectic.

i really hope for a relaxing weekend, but most likely it won't be that way.

thanks again for reading

I'm sure the weekend will go well.

Go for a run...it will clear your head.

no running allowed this weekend.

Lisa has vetoed me leaving her alone with all three kids.

i put some massive miles on next week to compensate
