This week....

Well Happy Friday Eve everyone. I really have had a great week this week. I have stayed true to my intentions and it has made all the difference. I have taken time for me this week. I have been able to see a good side to situations that have presented themselves this week. The Little Lady has toned it down quite a bit. Thank you modern medicine. I wore real clothes all week and made an attempt to look like I put in some effort in on me. I have eaten good for me stuff....for the most part. I was good enough to satisfy me, and that is good enough. I have made plans for the weekend. I haven't had Gkid sleep over for months. So this is my weekend. Girls do a quick Friday to Saturday morning. Then the boys on Saturday, after the 5 year old gets done with football. The girls and I will be going. This I have to see. then I'd like to hit the movies. I haven't been to the movie in what seems like ages. All this after I walk 4 miles with both my walking buddies. Even that has changed. I only walk with one since Christmas.

I feel like I have been through the worse of whatever this thing I have been struggling with is. Christmas funk. Too much work. Depression. I'm sure At least for now. I am going to enjoy it. I know I say that everyday, but I need to remind myself. Life isn't going to be perfect everyday. Enjoy the good ones.

The weather has been gorgeous! 70 degrees this weekend. I can't wait to be outside at the football game and the bird park, Good times. I have been following Roxie as she does the Hate Loss Challenge. You should too. Gravel and Rust. Check my blog roll. I went over and read Ellen's posts as well. Very insightful and has really gave me something to think about today. I loved Ellen's quote about you don't change, you allow change to happen. Change is going to happen. It is out of our control. Learning to allow it seems so reasonable, yet I fight it. Great reads today for sure. Thanks Ladies!

Well I think I will ride the bike around before riding up to do my last visit with the Little Lady for the day. Hope everyone is having a great week.

Keep the mood and the food real........


  1. You know, I never really experienced "Christmas funk" until this year. I think it must be going around. Glad you're getting out of it, though :)

  2. Glad to hear you've had a good week & taken time to care for yourself. That is so important. Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned. Totally jealous of the weather, lol. :)

  3. Christmas blues.
    It does get better!

  4. I'm so glad that you've had a great experience this week. I know you are happy to put the Christmas funk in the rear view mirror.

    I'm a firm believer in taking some time on the outside makes us feel a little better on the inside. It's good self care. Good for you.


Tell me what you think!
