Went to a funeral yesterday, for an 88 y/o friend and came home a bit melancholy. I can't help but tear up at a funeral -it's just the way I am. Funerals always make me think about how short our life is...
which got me wondering why I haven't done more or done better w/my life. Started getting bummed about a variety of things, including not staying more focused on improving my health/life.
Yep, I've got a bit of the blues weighing me down, & I'm feeling like a fat failure today.
YUCK! I hate it when the black dog shows it's sad face; so I'm running to the vegie garden to pull some weeds and think about something else for a few hours.

I was really getting ready for a "me" day today, and then at 5:30am my hubby advised me that he was staying home today, when he had originally indicated that he was going to be out of town today and tomorrow.
ANYWAY. This kind of messed up my plans to have a total "ME" day. I was really wanting to focus on several things that had come up this week that have to do with me (like updating my goals and trying to coming up with a personal "action plan").
Needless to say, today became more of a 'hubby' day. He made me coffee w/bailey's and we sat and chatted about anything and everything. We puttered around the house and yard together, etc. I really enjoyed the day, but am now feeling guilty because I didn't do what I had planned on doing, which made me think about the Cathy Trone cartoon below:
I feel like I should have told him to 'leave me alone' for a bit, but I didn't. But am ok with that, since 'tomorrow is another day'. But now there's a lot hanging on tomorrow....

Well I got 5 wrong on Spark Trevia today, so am feeling pretty dumb. BUT, am so glad I did the trivia thing today because it helped me get rid of some bad/incorrect nutrition and exercise information I've been carrying in my head for a long time!
I also got my mom & dad off for their road trip to Virginia, so am looking forward to catching up on some 'Sabrina' time. All the things associated w/getting them prepared for the trip kept me busy (they are driving my Durango & hauling my trailer) so I had to make sure they were both ship-shape and ready for a long haul. Then of course there was the packing and loading. It was all good, and I was happy to help BUT am soooo looking forward to some ME time, LOL!!!
While Sparking today, I tried to catch up w/some of my peeps via the friend feed. DANG a lot of my peeps are doing fantastic!!! One of them, REALKIEKEY, crossed 10,000 fitness minutes so I wanted to visit her Spark Page & see what she's been up to. Her blog "WHAT I HAVE LEARNED DURING MY JOURNEY SO FAR" was great. So if you have time be sure and check it out:
Her words have inspired me to also just give up soda-pop all together. Let's keep on Sparking each other!

KAT-RBLWTHACAUS left me the following message on yesterday's blog:
Sounds like you put yourself last hon. What I've learned over the years is that unless we put ourselves first and foremost there isn't much I have to give to others.
This statement hit a chord for me, so am currently pondering why it is so hard to take care of myself first? If this is a problem you've dealt with I'd love to hear how you have overcome taking care of your self last.
