Today my back hurts and I'm feeling restless and tired.

Today I am being bad and eating dark chocolate peanut M&.Ms when I know I should be trying to limit my useless calories.

Today I'm worried about my grandmother, my dad, and my uncle. They went to an appt earlier today to find out if the masses and fractures found in my grandmother's spine are most likely cancer or not.

Today I actually have work to do but I don't want to do it because it's going to be complicated and I don't want to expend the brain power. I just want to sit here in a vegetative state.

Today I am happy because our basement renovation is just about done. We paid our horrible contractor his last check yesterday and we never have to see him again! Yay!

Today I want to go to the store to get a new pair of pants to jog in. My current sweatpants are so old they start slipping down whenever I run.

Today I feel guilty because I didn't go running last night when I got home from visiting my grandmother. Instead I ate carrots and hummus and canned green beans and watched House with my much missed R.

Today I think I'm spotting... which means I'm going to have to make the BCP or no BCP decision very soon. Ugh.

Today is dreary and cloudy and it's supposed to rain for a good part of this week. But, I am happy that it's 54 degrees, spring is here, the trees have buds, and the tulips and daffodils and lilies are sprouting.

Today I didn't feel like writing a running update (partly because of my guilt for not going out last night) but I will probably write one tomorrow.

Today I will notice the bad things and the good things, I will work and then go home to R-hugs and River-kisses, and I will be content.


  1. Mmmm, dark chocolate peanut M&M's. *drool* We all have days like that! Don't feel guilty and just get after again!! It's OK to give youself a break!
    And yay for spring!!

  2. Enjoy those m&ms. Yum! Congrats on getting rid of the contractor, aren't they the worst?? I hope you notice more good than bad today, and I'm glad you can find contentment with the people (and pets) you love.

  3. Thanks for reading and commenting. Sounds like you are having quite a day! Thinking of your gram...
