Things On My Mind

- Yesterday, I had this whole, long blog post planned out.  I found out a few things over the weekend that really upset me, and I learned there were some people whom I thought I could trust but I couldn't.  I was going to write this whole long post about false friends and wondering how you could trust some people, but luckily I decided to sleep on it.  The thing is, maybe I'm repressing my feelings, or maybe something else is going on, but I'm not as upset today.  I'm still hurt by the whole situation, yes, and I still have a lot to think on, but there are some wonderful people out there in my life, and I can't let a few bad things affect my relationship with those people.  So, I'm trying my best to move on and get over it (and learn from it).

- It's amazing how different a run can make you feel.  Generally a good run will wake me up and make me alert for the day, but occasionally a good run just leaves me feeling drained.  This happens most often if I've pushed too hard, or if I haven't adequately hydrated, or even if I was just too tired going into it, but it's still interesting.  Today's run, while fantastic, left me out of it.  I could barely function, and all I wanted to do was sleep (to the point where looking at the dogs play made me want to cry because I was so tired).  However, I couldn't be happier about the run.  I went out even though I wanted to sleep in, and I pushed myself through even though I wanted to stop.  At one point, I did listen to my body and slow down (it was either that or vomit), but I didn't just stop, and that's important to me.  I don't want every run to be that hard, but it did work out a lot of emotions for me (see above).

- Cody and Lollie had another acupuncture / chiropractic session today.  I love seeing how well they do with it.  Honestly, though, I need to see the chiropractor too.  I did something to my neck on Saturday, and while it's significantly improved today, I'm guessing it would feel a lot better if I just went to the chiropractor.

- Business is great.  I can't believe how far we've come in a year, and I can only hope things continue to get better.  Business is also keeping both Hans and me extremely busy, and I find that the only thing I want to do in my spare time is sleep.  Hopefully, I'll have a chance to do that more soon.

Well, that's pretty much everything that's on my mind.  I hope you're all doing well.


  1. Sounds like going for a run helped with whatever situation was stressing you out. I've been there, too. I'm learning (slowly) to keep those I can 100% trust extremely close--and everyone else, unfortunately, at a more neutral and safe distance. At this point, God, my husband and my parents are the only ones I truly trust!
    Anyway, hope you get some more free time soon, so you can do more for yourself (other than sleep!)

    1. Sounds like you trust the same people I do (well, add my best friend of 17 years to that)! Running definitely helped with everything, so I'm glad for that. I doubt I'll have more free time soon, but I'm working on it.
