A lot of things were not going too well. Two year old Gwen is sick. Naturally, she's fussy and that takes a lot out of me. Hubby has probably the worst cold he's had in over 30 years. It seems like he was a little sick for a couple weeks and now suddenly it is much worse. So I'm having to do some things for him and some things he usually does. I would not describe him as fussy, but I can't think of a more accurate word. On Monday Hubby got stopped by police (I was in the car) and received a $153 ticket for forgetting to renew his registration; and it is 3 points on license which may raise insurance rates. Seems like there are a million home maintenance issues and we are only getting to 900,000. OK, I am exaggerating, but some days I look around and want to run away from home!! Talk about running, I've even got a conflict with my running group about my last long run before my half marathon. When I was focused on the negative, I kept finding it.
I was just feeling less than enthusiastic about anything this morning. Then getting on the scale made me feel worse. I wanted to do something to turn around my focus on the negative and I did.
Do you know what made me feel better almost immediately? I put on some clothes I really like. I chose something I usually save for going out, but just decided to wear it on this day even though I wasn't going to do anything special. Honestly, I don't know why it made me feel so much better. Seems kind of shallow, but it worked all day. And I'm thankful.
Gwen seemed a little better by this afternoon, I've got chicken soup for hubby, and hand sanitizer for me. Looks like our Galloway program director will run my last long run with me. Everything else will wait. I'm thankful that I'm feeling positive and feeling healthy!!
