Woof. I am pooped. One weekend I swear I will have a relaxing one with lots of making my apartment a home time and putting up my feet. Time to rally for the full work week ahead. Caffeine hit me! But I don’t know about you, but I am ready for some marvelousness.
Marvelous… unplugged day yesterday. I know you didn’t hear from me but after a morning run at 7 am (slow 9.4 miles to shake out the legs) I headed to my cousin’s baby shower. This is a cousin I haven’t seen in over 10 years. My dad’s sister’s family is a side of the family we rarely see because everyone is all over the place and they do less family stuff together. That being said, they really wanted me to come because they are 2 hours outside of Dc. My uncle drove two hours to get me, that is a total of eight hours of driving for him counting driving me home afterwards. Yes, I knew no one at the shower. Yes, I didn’t get back till almost 830 pm and left at 10 am. Yes, I had a long night of catch up because of that. BUT it was good to do something, anything, with people. Man was I dehydrated and hungry though after being there all day. (the baby finder game, do you see me?)
Marvelous… that I saw a cousin I never thought I would see looking beautifully pregnant with a glorious glow. Her and her sister were two cousins that while they are about 10 years older than me, my sister and I always looked up to. I still remember we used to only see them on the Cape each summer but we loved it. My sister and I felt so cool playing with the older cousins and learning from them.
Marvelous… that I forced myself to question my mindset. I struggle to justify getting a therapist, to me it feels like such a ‘weakness’. In reality, even healthy normal people have therapist. Why should I not let myself have this one space? I feared the judgment (oh she must be falling back). This is so not true, I know myself I am moving forward and so happy with the place I am at.
Marvelous… cooler mornings we have been having in Dc. I can’t believe that my runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday were actually, dare I say, cool to start. Beautiful to say the least. My body has been feeling these runs lately, such a stress reliever.
Marvelous… that while I may not have attended HLS, I get to read all the recaps.

After all this marvelousness, I am so ready for a Monday. How about you?
