Good Mornin' Life
Do you ever just wake-up in THE BEST MOOD? I am having one of those mornings....and it's really just a pretty normal morning, but I'm ridiculously cheery. It's Friday, it's the end of a long week, I feel great, I have people I love and who love me, and it's going to be good weather this weekend! So....I think it all officially started when I woke up, and remembered I had Sweet Life leftovers in the fridge. And yeah, I ate them for breakfast......Moooo ha ha. I always LOVE my oatmeal with fruit, but like I'm going to wait until lunch to eat my Sweet Life goodies....pshaw! I read the paper (browsed really...I love reading the movie reviews on Fridays, but Ebert is SOOOO predictable....oh my gosh, can we get someone new? can he retire? Bore-o-rama!), I read my scriptures in bed, and got ready while listening to my new Celtic Woman music....it's sounds uber-dorky, but it rocks like Adam Lambert! (It's not rock music) When I was putting on "my face", I would get these weird ideas in my head, and laugh out loud cuz I thought they were so funny. And then I'd laugh about laughing at something so dumb. I knew Chad could hear me, and that made me chuckle more. What a psycho! I decided to make myself feel cute today...I love the colors and patterns I'm wearing, and don't you just love the bright green pendant that sets off the whole ensemble? It just adds a little element of surprise. I passed the messy kitchen to get to the office, and I thought, oh good, I get to clean that today. That was not sarcastic. I was happy about cleaning the kitchen. I'm tellin' ya, everything is looking bright today. I'm just so excited about today, and nothing is really going on. (By the why, the title of the blog, if from a song from Return to Me. I LOVE THIS SONG, with the hokey piano accompaniment, and lyrics....it's always my go-to song for happy days...."Good Mornin' Life, Good morning world, How are you skies above? Gee, ain't it great to be alive and in love?" Fabulousness!
Here's me being a goof. "Hi, my name is chubby. My mom is chubby. My dad is chubby, and my cat is chubby.....you know that one?"
And look at those bazoombas! LOL. Hey, I have to enjoy the perks of being prego. Am I naughty? Tehe. Yeah, probably not the best thing to put on the blog....but I thought it was so funny, I'll delete it later.
These pics views on a path near my house. I am in love with this path. Literally, in love. It is a godsend! If we ever move away, one of the saddest parts for me will be losing this path. It's like a best friend. It takes about 3 minutes for me to drive there, and I go running (sometimes biking) on it, practically everyday with Dakota. After work, off we go, with nothing but the ipod and comfortable gear. If I'm having a bad day, I feel better right away. Once I turn on my music and start moving, I let out this big sigh, knowing that for at least an hour, I just get to enjoy nature, a healthy body, and great music. All the weight of the day is put behind me, and I don't think once about it. If I'm having a good day, it makes my day all the more awesome.
I probably pass 1-2 people on cloudy days, and 3-4 people on sunny days. Nice and secluded, but still open enough to feel safe, plus I have Dakota, Ms. Protective. You can get a 10 mile run if you want. But, lately I've been keeping it to 3. I can't wait for the days of longer and faster runs, but 'til then, I'm still loving it. Once I pass the neighborhood after the first mile, then I can start adding dancing into the running...lol....good times. What other path can on you dance on with out feeling like a hippie-freakazoid?
The path is always there, a constant friend waiting for me to visit. Every turn is so familiar. Chad runs on it too, and we both know it so well that all we have to say is, I ran to the gate, or I ran to our picnic spot, or I ran to the telephone pole, and we know how far they went. So many good memories. So many to look forward to.
