~~~~~~~~~~~~<img alt="jog.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/jog.gif">~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<br><br>
Welcome to the August 2013 Dingo thread. <img alt="run.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/run.gif"><br><br><br><br>
New visitors to the Dingo Thread may ask, "but, what is a Dingo?"<br><br><br><br>
Dingoes are mamas (defined loosely, when needed) who run, walk, cycle, tri, and participate in whatever sport they need to sustain their awesome mama selves in lives that are definitely dynamic. Sometimes, a Dingo is injured, or life takes a turn, and she has to take a break from her chosen sport. Whether active or aspiring, Dingoes support one another in spirit. When two Dingoes are in the same place at the same time, something incredibly special happens. This is called a Dingo Meetup. They are relatively rare, and so we try to record them with photographic evidence.<br><br><br><br>
Are you a Dingo? You just might be, if:<br><br>
You sometimes perform acts of brilliance in order to squeeze a workout into a busy week.<br><br>
You're never ashamed of coming in at the back of the pack, even if you're used to coming in faster.<br><br>
You have found yourself sincerely respecting and admiring moms in all forms, observing how they're doing it for love, and growing from their experiences as well as your own<br><br><br><br>
You won't know until you try, and all comers are welcome.<br><br><br><br>
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<br><br>
Awesome opening written by jo at some point in the past. <img alt="blowkiss.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/blowkiss.gif">

Hooray, I had a good long run this morning! I've been dreading it all week, after last week's disaster of an 8 miler. Some good company made all the difference in the world, as I did this week's run in about the same amount of time as last week's and it was 2 miles longer. In fact, I miraculously only stopped once, and that was at the turnaround to use my inhaler. Maybe I can survive this marathon training thing after all...<br><br>
And now, to go get ready for my lunch date. Eek!

It is good to here you are feeling better/slept better kerc. Will you suffer caffeine withdrawal?<br><br>
tjsmama, I hope the run settled any nerves down before your lunch date!<br><br>
We are organizing the school work and finishing what will count as our first week of the 2013-2014 school year. We do work year round but things tend to get out of control and I like to be a step ahead of deadlines. I wish we had gotten about two more weeks of work done before turning things over but overall good progress was made. Time for new goals!<br><br>
I will lift today. If I get medical/dental paperwork together I will also deal with those issues. That has to count as a workout.

I want to post just once and not include a typo or example of unclear thinking. Just once.<br>
Hear not here. There may be other problems but I'll leave them for someone else to point out.<br>
Gah.

Lunch was good. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> Good conversation (although I was dumb and ordered pesto and spent the whole time worrying that I had pesto in my teeth <img alt="orngtongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif">), nice guy. TOTALLY not my normal type looks-wise, but he's cute! Definite possibilities, I think, but we shall see.<br><br>
Oh, and I finally got an email from Tuesday guy. I think three days might be a bit long, but I'll probably give him another chance. In a few days. <img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif">

<p>Gaye <img alt="thumb.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375481222414_1119" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> makin' me laugh.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>mommajb, don't sweat these things. I'm full of typos and errors and English was my major. <img alt="winky.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375481222414_1638" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>In the final week of Ramadan here. Think we're gonna make it! Ds is a crazy champ.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RR: 22 miles on the bike followed by a little yoga.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ETA: RM, homeschooling through HS is soooo not in my plan, but I am trying to remember, man plans, G!d laughs. Keeping an open mind and hoping to be in a place, maybe by next year, where ds can get back into a B&M situation. He's doing great academically, but as I mentioned before, he thinks he misses the large numbers of students. I appreciate more time together, but I miss my hours of silence.</p>

Congrats Gaye on a long run and successful date. Thanks for the new thread.<br><br>
School here starts after labour day, and our face to face school not until two weeks later. That said, both kids are doing daily fiddle and French for August, and we're likely to slide some math back in for the oldest soon.<br><br>
Jo, I can only plan one year at a time for school. I've never been wholly committed to HSing, public school or even our current hybrid. Year by year, kid by kid, we'll keep doing whatever works best given current situations.<br><br>
I got my pre-reading for my masters program "gateway week" (on-campus week) at the end of the month. And textbook list. It's starting to get real.<br><br>
Four blocks away there is a new small development starting that has many lots with a house plus gatehouse. I was looking at prices and plans and dreaming of having a separate house/studio for my husband to work in. I told him about it and he thought I meant for MIL to live in (she's recently talked about us all buying something similar to decrease mortgages for all of us). It doesn't solve the work from home issue, but is something to consider...

<p>Evening mamas,</p>
<p>Gaye - Glad you had a fun time with your date today.  Here's to many happy returns. :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lofty - Isn't your birthday imminent?  Any plans?  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Geo - Oh my, that remodel sounds like quite a nail-biter!  And yahoo for a good therapist fit, more <img alt="goodvibes.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375499049693_1980" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/goodvibes.gif">for a better meeting time.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>MelW - would MIL instead of studio be a good thing?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mommajb - Don't sweat the spelling (say I as I tye on a terrible work computer with a crap keyboard) just blame the technology</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RR: no but I'm running tomorrow morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>NRR: just checking in from work.  Tonight is a Patsy Cline tribute show.  Kids' classes are done for the summer.  In the end two of the most disruptive boys had to stay home with head lice and we started having some fun.  I'm sorry to have been so fed up with my high energy charges, it's just disappointing to find that your plans which work for one group of kids just aren't happening with another.  That and it's incredibly frustrating to feel you have to fight to teach a game.  But I'm still learning, it's all good.</p>

Plady, you are right. Next week. To coincide with Austin visit. Glad summer camp is going better!<br><br>
Jooj, Ramadan sounds like it has been very good.<br><br>
Mel, we fantasize about mil houses. I grew up with grandparents all around and would love it if my kids could experience that.<br><br>
Tjsmama, are you having fun?<br><br>
Mommjb, just pretend you're typing on a phone and it auto-corrected incorrectly. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif">

<p>Lofty - 1/2 dingo!? Crazy! You had me singing Melissa Ethridge in my head there <span id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_5370"><img alt="lol.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_5372" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif"></span></p>

<p>MelW - wow, things are already getting going with your masters program! Eek! But exciting, too. I love buying textbooks. Paying for them, on the other hand, not so much.<span id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_4789"><img alt="winky.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_4788" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif"></span></p>

<p>Thanks for the new thread Gaye!! Your dates sounds pretty good so far!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mommajb, How frustrating with the ortho. We are just starting that journey with DD2.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And whew, I got the races on the first page <span id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_3675"><img alt="eyesroll.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_3674" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eyesroll.gif"> barely.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>RR: 8 miles today, slow (13 m/mile) but done.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>Otherwise, work has been busy and I feel like I am neglecting everything else in my life. We have been dealing with fleas ever since we got home from vacation - despite all the topical treatments that have always worked for us. Now I am hearing that we should switch topicals because the fleas become immune or something. Right after I bought 6 months worth for each of the animals.</span> <span id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_4184"><img alt="irked.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_4183" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/irked.gif"> Actually, I went with a super-expensive (but supposedly very effective) flea collar for the dog. That, plus lots of laundry and vacuuming, I'm hoping that will do the trick.</span> I hate fleas.<span id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_8151"><img alt="censored.gif" id="user_yui_3_10_0_1_1375547730315_8153" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/censored.gif"></span></p>

Mel38-can you put me down for the West Side Duathlon on August 25? Thanks!<br><br>
Subbing & reading along.<br><br>
Tried to reserve a wetsuit today. One store only has sleeveless (I'd rather not) and other only goes to size small, which may be too big. Apparently I should have taken care of this sooner. I did swim in Lake Granby yesterday. Other than the squishy clay-mud from the mountain-turned-shoreline/lake bottom and the fact that it was freezing, it was fine. Didn't go far due to being cold, but was pleased to see the swimming was fine, even with a little wind.

<p>Subbing. Here, lurking, lots going on. Re-entry for the girls after camp has been loving but very bumpy. Processing the '(mis)education' dd1 got in camp from friends (thank goodness we have had these conversations steadily over the years and she already knows the 'true deal' but still...jeez...and this is a religious camp!). Ds is happy to have his sisters back but missing, I think, being the only show in town crown prince.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My anxiety is starting to ramp up as we get into August. Off to my folks' tomorrow for 6 days while I take a teacher's course (AP continuing ed) and the kids spend days at Camp Baba and Tata (their names for my dad and mom). Then back for the weekend, and then on 'family vacation' for four days -- we're going to Martha's Vineyard which is fun and lovely, but the work involved in taking everyone away and making sure I have food...ugh. Then one week, and school starts. I am not done with my preparations (of course).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RR: on and off. Planning a long run tomorrow morning, we'll see if it happens.</p>
