We are getting ready to head out for our “Six Flags: Great America” adventure, and I decided this whole experience would be so much more fabulous if I pretend that we are going to the “state fair” instead.
And it elicited absolutely no emotion. Nothing. At all.
It is funny how a person who, at one point in my life, was singularly responsible for so much space in my head and heart…and who caused me a remarkable amount of pain- now doesn’t yield any feelings, whatsoever.
I only share this as a ray of hope for anyone going through a heartbreak.
Thank you so much for all of your virtual affection over the past few days. You continuously make me feel so cared for and very loved.
I was genuinely overwhelmed by your responses to my anniversary post. Thank you for being part of not only today’s celebration…but for being part of my life.
When I started this blog, I was really just excited about finding a corner of the internet to call my own- I had no idea the real value of “Emphasis Added” would be the people…the friends I have made through it. Every “like,” “reblog” and “comment” brightens up my days and my nights are spent recounting the things I learned from you with the people in my off-line life.
I can’t express how much it means to me to be able to share my stories with you.
Create a short but insanely-awesome playlist on your ipod (maybe 5 songs) and all you have to do is run for the duration of that playlist…piece of cake. Seriously- anyone can find the time/energy/stamina to bust out a 15 minute run, right?!
Just get moving for 5 little songs.
Come on, all you have to do is run for 5 tiny songs.
Once you get over the hump…add songs to your playlist and high-five yourself as your mileage grows!
Remember that Grey’s Anatomy episode where the woman kept coming into the hospital becasuse she hurt herself and the great doctors would fix her up and send her home, and then they found out she was hurting herself because of the bar exam? Those writers must have actually known someone who was studying for the bar.
Just got an email informing me that “Volunteers are needed on Sunday, October 11 at the Chicago Marathon for both start and finish line operations. Duties include monitoring start corrals; guiding participants and spectators before, during and after the race; and more!”
I would love to volunteer but um…I will be busy RUNNING the marathon;
However, I think it would be awesome if some Chicago tumblrs helped out!
Any lawyers (spouses of lawyers? friends of lawyers?) out there have any suggestions on how to help my husb through the next 4 days?
Last night, the chocolate cake I brought home provided no solace, when asked how we was doing he said “torture would be more pleasant” and he just kept repeating: “I hate this. I hate this.” It is bad.
He is officially freaking out (despite the fact, I KNOW he is prepared)…and I don’t know what I can do for him.
