One of the songs on my running playlist is from the Power Puff Girls' Soundtrack (an all-time favorite), by Shonen Knife called “Super Girl.” It's Buttercup's theme, I think and it always energizes me.
It's been playing in my head this week, even though I haven't been able to get much running in. See, I've been Super Busy. My partner in crime has been absent, doing his duty for the good of our family on a business trip. I have a giant freelance project due the middle of next week. Between work and commuting and getting the kids to bed on time and household maintenance (cooking, cleaning, etc.) plus being out sick on Monday, I would normally only be left with about an hour to get anything else done. Luckily, I have excellent help right nearby.
My sis came over and helped out with the kids on Monday night when I was still sick and having those terrible achey chills. My mom came over last night and took over from the end of dinner until bedtime so I could use those hours on my freelance project (coming along nicely!). And because she's Super Grammy, she and my dad are having the kids to stay Friday night and a good part of Saturday so Matt and I can have a date night followed by a work day (when I should be able to finish the oft-mentioned project).
What's my point? My awesome family are my superpowers and superheroes. Also? I need to use that song as my ringtone.
