I don’t want to jinx anything, so I’m not going to say anything about the weather.  Except that I am hopeful.  Even in North Dakota, I am hopeful. I think that’s saying a lot. I’m also pretty stoked to be living in a college town and attending a college in that town.  I go to track meets anyway because I’m cool like that, but now I actually attend the school I’ll be rooting for.  Winning.

Speaking of winning, it’s time for the illustrious honor afforded to the commenter who made the Salties swoon: Comment of the week!  The winner is…Erin, who commented on Basil’s “On Having it All post:”

Kind of like the oxygen mask scenario on the airplane, Mamas need to take care of themselves first, before their children. Obviously this means some serious prioritizing, because a children’s needs often need tending to at the moment they ask for it. (Ever tried to postpone dinner by a half hour?) I have learned I need to run/exercise to feel happy. I have to wake up in the predawn hours to fulfill that need. It is hard to do, but it is beyond worth it. There was a time where this was not possible. I am glad that time has passed!

Congrats! We loved your comment, Erin.  To all of our readers: We really love all of your comments.  You have something to say, and we want to hear it!  Enjoy your weekend and your weekend run!
