So much has happened this month. I just decided to go muse-like as I ponder the events of the last few weeks or so....
When your finished basement has flooded, the moment when the repairs are complete is one of the top 5 moments of your life. It’s even better when you remember you didn’t have to pay for it.
One of the top 5 worst moments of your life is seeing your finished basement flood again after repairs have been completed. (no where near as bad, but still)
Losing any pet is a heartbreaking moment….(RIP Quincy the hedgehog).
Spraining an ankle takes the wind out of your sails and knocks you for a loop.
Hurting your back takes the wind out of your sails and knocks you for a loop.
Note: Spraining an ankle after hurting your back does not help your back…..
Being in shape and exercising is only a curse when you finally realize what you’re missing when you’re sidelined by injury and can’t do it.
You want to like your personal trainer and continue on with her but then you realize you can’t really trust her cuz it took a month for her to call you back.
Binge eating is a real problem….
A partner who binge eats is NOT a problem….you learn together.
Cooking is an art that you really need to start doing….like, REALLY.
It’s time to face reality.
Even though you took a peek at the scale you have to record that possible 10 pound gain….own it, face it, growl at it, and move in for the kill.
Goals can be undefined, hazy, unknown…..go find them.
The bike will never let you down.
Falling in love with a dog you are dog sitting is not advisable.
A popular blog post will not change your world, make you the cool kid, or stop the journey……keep going.
Spark is better than Facebook…..no really, it is….why do you waste your time?
Sometimes you just have to BE the messy!!....only sometimes…ok, rarely…..um, can I hide in my 5 inches of clean now?
A good book should never be far from hand.
Rain, rain go away…come again another day.
August is a better month than July all around…historical fact or no (fingers crossed).
Sometimes you have to postpone a dream, knowing that you will kick ass at it next year…(see above musings regarding injuries).
An Ipod is a necessary accessory at work when your coworkers complain and/or gossip.
Changing careers requires getting over the terrified feeling first.
A habit is formed in 21 days…so it’s time to get started (or is that restarted…).
Sometimes it’s just time to snap out of it.
