My brain has kind of been on overload. I’ve been very anxious lately.
I was thankful for today, I seemed to be busy not doing much. I had a great breakfast with my friend Dina, almost every Saturday starts with my nail appointment. I think if I wasn’t at Daybreak on Saturday mornings they wouldn’t know what to do. I made two crazy big pots of stew, and I don’t even like stew, lol.
A church that I serve at (they serve two meals a day – EVERY day! They are amazing!!!) had some crazy overabundance of mixed veggies, and instead of telling them what to do with them, I took them off their hands, added a few key ingredients, and voila stew! Its now in the freezer so they can use it when they need it. Tomorrow I make Chicken Stew for our meal that we bring on Thursdays.
While my stew (that smelled incredible and tasted pretty good if I do say so myself) cooked I went for a run. May I just say that people really need to shovel their walks. Sheesh, it was like an obstacle course out there, not to mention people were not happy when I had to run in the street (someone actually yelled at me – yeah, like it was my fault that there was snowy icy paths!). It was a tough run, it’s the first time I’ve run in 2 weeks. I just really HATE running on the treadmill, and I haven’t done any exercise except for Zumba on Mondays since I last ran. I’ve been so busy with work, and just exhausted that I didn’t exercise. I decided that I really do enjoy the elliptical so I will go to the gym in the mornings and do that, and run outside on different days. I need to exercise, and I need to love it. And I will run outside, I know that I will be ready for the 15 miles in May and I will be ready for the marathon on October. So there, I came clean.
I got the answer to my decision. Funny, I always knew.
Tomorrow I will run. I hope its easier than that last ½ mile today.
Tomorrow I have my cake decorating class. I’m kind of excited and nervous. I’ve got all the stuff to be successful, I hope I don’t screw it up. I made a 8” cherry chip cake for valentine’s day.
Tomorrow will be our time together (me & phyl) and I can’t wait.

but a kind word cheers it up.
