Awesome Possum

 I apologize for the smeared eye-makeup and serious tired-face in these pics, but they were taken quite early. 7am yesterday and already at 80 degrees! Michigan is crazy.

I don’t have much to report other than things are finally moving along nicely for once. I have always been addicted to making lists, and now I am managing to get items actually crossed off those lists. The key for me is to get the most out of my day: instead of just standing there waiting for the coffee to finish brewing, throw a load of laundry in the wash. I am making the most out of my day dammit, and it feels awesome possum.

I other news, the 10K is practically upon us! Well, at least those of us in Michigan who have signed up for it. I am still pretty nervous, and I am still a very slow runner. I didn’t stick to my training as best as I would have liked, but I am still going to stick with it. I am going to continue to run a few times a week after this as well, even if it is only three miles or so each run. In the past month, I have dealt with my debit card being stolen, family issues, wedding crap, work drama, my car breaking down-multiple times, house issues, and for some reason I am pretty calm. It’s the running! Endorphins make you happy, happy people deal. I am not perfect by any means, but I am way less stressed than I would have been say a year or so ago. Woot.

  1. "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't."

    Your blog made me think of that line from Legally Blonde.

    Can you send me some of your 'make the most of the day' energy? I have been incredibly lazy lately.

  2. Don't you love when everything comes down on you at once: NOT!! I've been dealing with one bully after another round here. Keep you chin up! :)

  3. Love those shoes and the print on your skirt. 7am is wayy too early to wake up! x E

  4. glad running is working for you! You looks so sweet in these pictures!

    p.s. I think this every time, but now i'm finally gonna say it: Could you maybe turn off the word verification. It's so cumbersome (this is actually attempt 2 because i got it wrong first time round) and the google spam filter is actually pretty good!

  5. I try to multi-task and get the most out of my day too! There are 24 useable hours in every day, or something like that!

    I love your necklace, totally perfect with a white shirt!

  6. lovely!

    I adore the bracelets too.
