Burrrr...it's cold today! I have always loved the cold weather. You get to bundle up in sweaters, boots, hats, scarves. Cuddle up in a warm bed and be lazy...watch movies. I love it all. I went for a long run this morning and boy was it COLD out there! But, I still loved it. The storm is bringing in some huge waves, so there were a lot of surfers out at the point. It felt great to run outside again... I haven't since the marathon, because I was recooperating and using the treadmill instead. I just got the HUGE 42" HD Plasma TV that B bought installed on my bedroom wall and i am super STOKED!! This weekend will be all about relaxing in bed (after running of course) and watching movies. I can't wait!! My body needs the rest, and so does my mind! I've been struck with some news today that my x husband has gone out on some dates with my friend. It was hard to take at first, because I always thought friends and x's were off limits. She says it's not to that point yet - even if it is - I will be happy for him. He deserves to find somebody and be happy like I am. I want that for him. Plus I love her as a person and my kids know her - I guess that makes it easier, if there is an easier. I have been learning a lot of lessons about what friendship really is - some have been hard lessons - but there is always an upside to the down side, right ? I can only be responsible for how i act - not what is done to me. I have learned to communicate better and that talking about the hard stuff is good - not bad.
Thought for the day : "Success is determined by how you handle setbacks."
I have had my share of setbacks this year - but I am handling it okay I think. I am trying to embrace the quote that says "that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger" - I am getting stronger every day!! Having Brendan in my life has changed me for the better...I am thannkful for him more and more everyday!!! :)
