One Saturday Morning

I remember when I would watch that in the mornings on Saturdays on ABC. It was great to wake up and not have to worry about cleaning the house, paying the bills, doing laundry and taking care of countless errands, wasn’t it? When the most important thing in life was the cartoons and your morning cereal. Man, I still love Kix.

Sometimes I’m so happy that I’m so busy with my life and don’t get me wrong, I do love my life and the place I am at right now as a person. I am usually a very positive, happy person as well but sometimes there are some things in life that disappoint you. I don’t want my blog to be all about airing my dirty laundry but today I have a lot of family things going on that won’t be easy for me to deal with. If you could send good thoughts + prayers my way that would be much appreciated. I don’t think you all realize how much a comment brightens my day.
I can’t wait to run tomorrow and be able to put this behind me.
Thank you all,

    Thoughts are with you today. Keep your chin up and remember you can always fit in a run. :)

    Let me know how you like the garmin. I'm starting to look for a new watch to replace my Timex speed&distance that I've had for about 8 years now….

    I use to watch Garfield and Friends every Saturday morning at 10. I cannot tell you many things I watched during childhood, but its funny how things like that never go away. I hope that whatever is going on changes for the better. I am praying for you!

    God (or whomever you may believe in) only gives you what you’re capable of handling.

    Compared to some of the other people in the world (or this country even these days), we’ve got it pretty good.

    Chin up Danica. You’ll get through it. In the meantime, take out your frustrations out on the pavement!

    Big Hugs.

    No worries…it will all work out OK. Everything happens for a reason..and even in the face of major tragedy..I find ways to put a positive spin on it. It truly makes you feel better if you can keep a positive outlook. After is toooooooo short to sweat the small stuff. There are no guarantees in life……embrace everything as it comes…and always remember..its OK to be sad..its OK to cry.

    I’ve found that a really hard run solves a lot of issues – even if only for the time that you are running. When you are putting all of your effort into staying upright it is hard to think about anything else.

    …..This too shall pass….

    I love being busy. I have so much going on in my life that I like to run away from the problems. I run as far as I can. Being busy makes this so much easier!

    I’m excited for your Garmin !! I’m not that hardcore yet, I’ll stick with my Nike+ for now, but I’ve heard from several people that after about 9 months of running, after 10-12 miles it’s stops reading accurately.

    Keep your chin up love!!

    Thanks for following and I hope everything gets better. I have been going through so much lately as well and I feel as if I can never talk about it on my blog because it would seem so out of place. Everyone is so positive and joyous on here, I don’t want to seem constantly upset in comparison. But if you ever need anyone to talk to I’m here :)
