Friday musings!

Friday, October 18, 2013

Happy Friday! And happy birthday to my baby who turned 23 today! I texted him a happy birthday message early this morning ending with an "i love you" and he replied "I love you too". He's a man of few emotions so this was a grand moment for me. The tone of the day has been set!


I've had a few ups and downs this week but I kept pulling myself back on track thanks to blogs I have read this week and keeping some countdowns in my head.....

16 more days until the Chicago Hot Chocolate 5K
22 days until the Chicago Perfect 10K
245 days until summer


I also spent an entire morning one day reading all of the blogs I have written. I was pretty down and looking through other spark member blogs. Not sure how it occurred to me but I went back to my first blog and kept reading.

I was reminded of how far I have come in my attitudes and how I need to keep moving, I can't let a bad day get me down. One blog reminded me I have to "work the coat", another blog reminded me to "put one foot in front of the other", another blog reminded me the "my life is as good as an Abba song, it's as good as Dancing Queen".

So today I'm going to remember to dance....

"my grandpa he's 95
he keeps on dancin
he's still alive

my grandma she's 92
she loves to dance and sing some too

I don't know but I've been told
if you keep on dancin
you'll never get old"

Everybody get your dance on!

    It is nice that we can go back and read what was going on at the time. Glad you had that chance. Also, you have a lot of running coming up really soon! Good luck with all of it!

    I went over my blogs about a month ago. I decided that I wanted to be "public" again and since several employees are on Spark, I thought I would delete those blogs that were just too personal for the boss to reveal. Turns out all those blogs were really negative. When I deleted them, I felt like I had dumped the excess baggage from my life. I was passed all that BS and it felt good to symbolically let it go.

    The Fall can be beautiful or cruel in Chicago, seldom both. May your 5K provide you with beauty and success (towards whatever your goals are)!


    As my Mother used to say: "There are two seasons in Chicago -- Winter and Fixing the Roads, and 'Fixing the Roads' ain't that great either." emoticon

    Hey Kellie emoticon

    Don't know why this happens, but you fell off my e-mail notification for blogs. I used to think that this happened when you failed to post comments on a friends blog, but I know that this is not the case here. No wonder I was missing you emoticon

    Now lets get dancing ! ! !

    Happy Birthday to your son! I haven't read my old blogs in a long time - thanks for that reminder! I remember it was good perspective-setter for me. Have a great weekend and a much better next week!

    Sorry to hear about the ups and downs this week, hope this weekend and next week bring something better (or maybe a less roller-coaster ride?) I really like your attitude here here--very positive! P.S. About the only dancing I can do is the chicken dance emoticon , does that count?
    P.P.S. I heard about the chocolate runs--it sounds wonderful! Have fun!

    Older blogs are always a great source of inspiration.

    Every once in a while I think I should go back over my blogs, but I've never done it. It might be what I need, but I feel like it's a time commitment! Silly...I need to just do it and quit making might really motivate me! Thanks for reminding me! Have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend Kellie!
