This week really got away from me. There is nothing like a rough couple of weeks to really make you appreciate your closest friends and family. I have the most wonderful supporting people around me. I am truly blessed. A girl could not ask for more understanding friends and family. My parents are the kind of parents everyone would love to have, the kind I strive to be everyday with the monkeys. I know I have mentioned this before, but I really mean it! My best friends live in different cities, states, and even countries than I. But when we get together, or email, or talk on the phone, it feels like we are next door neighbors. I don't tell them nearly enough how thankful I am to have them all in my life.
I get to go visit one of these friends this weekend. The monkeys and I are going on a weekend trip to let mommy have some venting "girlfriend" time. The big monkeys are very excited because she has a daughter that they are both in love with and a son just a bit younger with fun toys. I am really looking forward to it.
I had a great run this afternoon. The kind where I could have kept going if time wasn't an issue. It is such a great time to clear my head and make plans and just be me. I am very much looking forward to running with my running buddy VERY soon.
I am thinking about doing the Extreme makeover me edition that Connie does each week. It might keep me accountable for things (like the half dozen pecan sandies I ate before my run). I feel like it might cause me to feel pressure to come up with things to better about myself which means I would have to really look at my life a bit closer. I am not sure if I am ready for that, but will think about it before next week's edition.
