A look on the bright side?

I'm not going to lie - I am about this close from shunning technology and joining some commune in the middle of nowhere.

Too bad i love soap so, so much.

Honestly, it's been a pretty terrible week for all of us - the news has been a non-stop stream of death and destruction.  And thats the way it works.  One thing doesn't go wrong, EVERYTHING goes wrong.  But, these super dark days usually mean something good is right around the corner.  So here are some things i am excited about.

I can't wait to have a mini vay-cay next weekend.  Even if i have to run/walk/crawl/be dragged 26 miles, its worth it for a day off.  Also, i get really excited whenever i get to use the term vay-cay, even if it pisses most people off.

I now have lakefront property, some 30 years ahead of schedule in my life plan.  So round of applause for me!
And i STILL made it to work yesterday!  VERSA POWER!!

I finally caved and bought new shoes.  A week before the marathon.  I absolutely couldn't run it in the shoes i had technically retired last november.  That, and they still smell like giardiniera, and there could be wolves up there in Amish country.
They even match the cute arm warmers i bought from Oiselle!  So as i crawl across the finish line in last place, have no fear - I will be the best dressed one there!

And lastly, i got a surprise last weekend, and got to see my old roommate, who was in town from Spain!  When your friends leave the country, you don't get to see or talk to them as much as you like, so getting to see her was definitely a highlight.  It didn't hurt that when i saw her, we were at an 80's themed house party.
Luckily, i dress like its 1983 on a regular basis.

Chin up folks - everything will soon be on an upswing! (at least it better be, this whole month as been stuck in suck town, and waffles and I are sick of it!)

What looks bright for you right now?


  1. Nothing like getting new kicks! Tell the puddles to stay away from getting them dirty too fast!
    Its taper week right? According to your count down.

    Bright side for me: my one pub crawl a year I go to tomorrow! Zombie Pub Crawl!

    1. What is this?!?!?! I MUST KNOW!!!!!

    2. Sorry I missed the reply notification!

      Its a zombie drinking fest in Andersonville!

  2. Hmmm, what looks bright? It's Friday? So THIS WEEK IS OVER! Hopefully next week there will be no bombings, no puke, no floods and EVERYONE WILL GO TO SCHOOL.

    Then I will clean my house, blog, and run with my new watch and new hydration vest. Probably not in that order ;)

  3. Yes, things will be on a big upswing soon. These things all balance out in the long run. Glad to hear you were able to make it through the lakes of water yesterday. Also, congrats on owning lakefront property. Maybe you can build a running trail around the lake? :-)

  4. Love that lakefront view! haha Pleaseeee let's pray for an upswing. Waffles sure deserves it! :)

  5. Hmmmm.....I am alive? The weather, PMS, and pre-menopause issues has pretty much got me down so the bright spot???? I am alive to complain about it and wait for it to get better.....UGH!

  6. Yay lake! Okay, not really.

    I am taking Friday AND Monday off for my marathon weekend. But that's because I have to work Sunday at a 5K. But, still, Monday will be amazing.

  7. Woot woot! Nice lakefront property!
