Opinions … 

We should all have them. We should always respect others’, especially if we want ours to be respected too. And we really should remember that we don’t have to see “eye to eye” on them to live peacefully with one another.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you have an opinion!!!

Smelly … 

This morning I ran and didn’t have time to shower before I had to get Libs up for and to a Digital Media Arts Academy workshop. I quickly made breakfast and proceeded to toss a french toast medallion covered in marinated strawberries all over my leg, foot and kitchen floor. As I ran out the door with my coffee to take Libs to the workshop I spilled my coffee all over my left boob. Thank God it wasn’t nearly as hot as it could have been. I got home from dropping Libs off and got Reese ready to go to summer school. One of her favorite things for lunch is Trader Joe’s version of Spaghetti-Os. When I was putting the can of Os into a microwave save bowl I managed to spill them on my tank and shorts. At this point I realized that I probably shouldn’t wear anything nice today … and that I really needed a shower.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you aren’t smelly!!!

My unbreakable spirit isn’t budging … in Living and Running in LaLa Land

I’m not sure if you guys out there have that one person who absolutely loathes to see you happy … sadly, I do. I really hope none of you have one too because I know my person tries their best, time and time again, to disrupt me in my happy place. I wouldn’t want that for any of you. Now, most of you may be asking, “Why wouldn’t you just end your relationship with this person?” Well, all I can say to that, is that we all know that is not always an option. And I’ve grown to be OK with that. Why? Because I’ve become immune to their toxic efforts. It’s like background noise in my life and I’ve learned to turn it off. My joy and my happiness aren’t going anywhere. I can handle the negativity thrown at me. Pessimism will never knock me down for good. And if I had to pick one thing that I like about myself it’s knowing that, through it all, my unbreakable spirit has remained standing on firm ground.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t budge!!!

Knee high donut socks …

If you ever need knee high donut socks for a race that you have the very next day, I can confirm that you won’t find them. Not anywhere.



Well, I hope you all had a day where you found what you were looking for!!!

Blooming … 

You know you are up early when you realize that you are out and about even before the morning glories have opened. I’m not sure how I never realized this before with all of my early morning running, but I didn’t. It makes sense, and it makes me giggle a little.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you bloom before all the rest!!!
