I feel as though today has been in slow motion from the moment I woke up. Allergies didn't help nor did the allergy medication...so today has just been a blur. The drive home from work was rather nice. It rained the whole time. I did manage to go to the gym and run 4 miles on the treadmill before heading home. I thought I should get a few miles in before a 10K race in the morning. I was looking forward to this race and now I find myself rather 'blah' about it. I'm shure I'll perk up minutes before the race. I hope it doesn't rain because I'm not really in the mood to get dirty or wet!
The last thirty minutes of work were rather slow. I was surfing about on the internet and came across the new that Valerie Harper was Diagnosed with Terminal Brain Cancer. I grew watching The Mary Tyler Moore Show & Rhoda. I know that actors and actresses are in the same boat as the rest of us but I completely starstruck with certain celebrities. In my heart, many are immortalized and I only remember them from their glory days on the golden screen and on television. For as long as I live Valerie Harper will always be remembered. Valerie, thank you so much for all the joy you continue to bring to myself and millions of your fans - May the last days of your Life be filled with peace & love.
I made a huge pot of Fettuccine & Italian Style Sausage with homemade Alfredo Sauce. I plan to enjoy a bowl of carbs, cuddle with my litte feathered angels, and head early for bed.
Tonight I want to tell you the story of an empty stocking. Once upon a midnight clear, there was a child's cry. A blazing star hung over a stable and wise men came with birthday gifts. We haven't forgotten that night down the centuries; we celebrate it with stars on Christmas trees, the sound of bells and with gifts. But especially with gifts. You give me a book; I give you a tie. Aunt Martha has always wanted an orange squeezer, and Uncle Henry could do with a new pipe. We forget nobody, adult or child. All the stockings are filled -- all that is, except one. And we have even forgotten to hang it up. The stocking for the child born in a manger. It's his birthday we are celebrating. Don't ever let us forget that. Let us ask ourselves what he would wish for most, and then let each put in his share. Loving kindness, warm hearts and the stretched out hand of tolerance...All the shining gifts that make peace on earth.
Wishin' each of you a very Merry Christmas...
Happy to share that I've lost 10 pounds. Two more pounds to lose and I'll be back at the weight I was at before my heel injury. I allowed an injury to kick drive me into an emotional binge that lasted for almost two months.
I went for an early run this morning and my heel is doing well. My right shin and lower calf still ache a bit from Sunday's hike. Overall, I am thrilled to be back on the Active List!
Last night's debate proved another reason why I support Mitt Romney for President. I believe he held his ground against Obama and his record. It's impossible to hide from a disatrous four years and still try to rewrite History - don't tell that to this President. Shame on Candy Crowley for taking sides as a moderator. I'm looking forward to the upcoming poll numbers.
Time to get a move on. I'm so thrilled I'm almost a Size 6 again!
