All the feels …

This morning I had a yucky awful terrible run. Those are THE WORST and they usually leave me pretty irritable. About an hour after my run I spoke with my son, George, who is in Germany. This was THE BEST! My spirits were quickly lifted after hearing his voice. I miss him more than words could ever describe and his calls make me feel SO MUCH better. But a little while later Libs sent me a picture of herself after she got her hair styled for her senior portraits that she’s having done later today. This got me CRYING. When did my Little Libby Lu Lamb Chop become this beautiful young woman?!?! Needless to say, my morning has been chocked full of emotions.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel all the feels!!!

You can make it to the finish …

My kids are BUSY. There are a lot of them. And they are heading in all sorts of directions. Libs and Reese have one more week of school left. THANK GOD. Libs had her Farewell Concert last night and her choir banquet is tonight. After that it’s JUST finals. For the record, when finals are used in correlation with the word “just” you know it’s been a heck of a school year. Despite there only being a week left, we still have a lot to work out too. UGH. I have some issues to deal with regarding Reese’s school plan for next year. Along with that I am helping George maneuver through the study abroad program. THAT is a DOOZY. So needless to say, the end of this school year has kicked my mom butt. I keep telling myself it will all be over soon. Which is actually what I tell myself on practically every run and race I’ve ever completed. HA! Anyway, the difference a mere seven days will make is honestly astonishing. School will be out, we will have lots of answers to our questions and Sid will be home. I simply can’t wait.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you make it to the finish!!!

My kind of day …

I took a carefree run this morning. Then I enjoyed some much needed yoga. Later I had some creative fun in my kitchen. And I even had some time to sit down and write from my soul. It was THE BEST.

Well, I hope you all had my kind of day!!!

Smooth sailing …

Have you ever had a day where you just glided through it? One of those days when everything went calmly and without even a ripple? Well, today I am having one of those days. I woke up energized, had an easy run and enjoyed yoga immensely. I got my housework done quickly and then I was able to purchase some things that I wanted at a Young Living Essential Oil flash sale before they ran out. I breezed in and out of my car dealership picking up my car in less than 10 minutes. I had no traffic heading out to meet my cousin and my aunt for lunch. And NONE on the way back either! Before I realized how my day would continue to unfold I had picked up a meal kit from Whole Foods for an simple dinner. What a perfect way to end this definitely NOT rough and rocky day. Whoa!

Well, I hope you all have a day where it is smooth sailing!!!

Changing your mind …

I am loving this gloomy Saturday! I normally don’t like anything but summer weather after the New Year but I am growing to appreciate these winter-like days. Days like this motivate me to both get in the kitchen and to get outside and do longer runs. Some of my most favorite things to do! After all these years, I’m finally learning to love colder weather. OK … maybe I’m going a little overboard on using the word “love”, because I don’t see myself feeling this way after a week of rain. HA!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you change your mind!!!

My sweet reward …

What’s better than an UN-Christmas-ed house? Rewarding yourself for UN-Christmas-ing the house! For me that looked like a nice evening run, a warm shower, comfy clothes, some great company and a glass of wine.

Well, I hope you all had a day where you received your sweet reward!!!
