The last day. A grateful runner.

This is my last day to gather donations.  I’m a little sad I didn’t collect my minimum but grateful for everything I did receive and also grateful the charges I’ll pay will go for a good cause.

I don’t ever say “never”.  Whenever I do,  it backfires. So I’ll say I’ll work very hard to make better choices about running in the future.

But it is, after all, New York.

Totally worth it. (I hope…)

So two days of not working out.  Color me sad.

Okay, truth be told, I’m not that sad.  I’m not over running by any means ~don’t go all crazy ass on me~ I just took an extra day to hang out with the sweet man I’m married to while we stood in the kitchen and watched “The Voice” for freakin’ three hours.

I know. I KNOW.  That’s a long time right there. But hey…it was quality time with my husband.

He’s very cute.

Today of course, I must get moving.  This butt won’t lift itself (who are we kidding…what butt?)

My job is customer service.  I’m a bank teller (I like to say I’m “in banking”….sounds way more important, don’t you think? Ha.) and nearly every job I’ve ever had has been customer service.  I’d like to say that as a result of these jobs I’m pretty good at dealing with people from all walks of life.  I can put up with a lot before I really get beyond frustrated.

This is hard and sometimes I have to step away from a situation so I don’t get myself in trouble.  Starting every day with a new fresh perspective and reminding myself to respect even if I don’t agree.

There’s a lot of respecting. Some days are harder than others.  Today…it was a challenge.

Lord, I thank you for patience.
Hey. I have patience. I swear I do.

Monday we were hit with a huge hail storm. No joke…golf ball size hail and bigger.  Alex Michael was home and recorded some of it. Here’s the short version…sorry it’s so huge.  I can’t seem to “smaller” it.

      It was crazy for sure. We had to put the first roofing claim on hold and have another claim put in.
