Short & sweet today Laments: 1. I hate exercise 2. Daughter barely home & we're back to arguing over stupid things. 3. Awkward reminder as I picked up the youngest from a bday party, that as nice as those mom ladies were, they were never my friends. 4. Frikken technology that doesn't work. Gratitudes: 1. I got to have coffee with Dina 2. Got in a good workout 3. I'm keeping up with the summer challenge 4. Watching Breaking Bad w/another son 5. Great weather today. It was pretty warm, but breezy. Bonus: I had multiple opportunities to be bitchy & annoyed today, but instead I chose to be gracious. What a great feeling!

Feeling pretty lonely lately. One of my best friends moved far away. It's for all the right, wonderful reasons, to be close to her grandkids. But I miss her. I wasn't really letting myself feel it until she actually left. Now I'm feeling it. A lot. 4. I had four other friends cancel on me with plans this week. Just feeling dogged. 5. I'm still freaking fat! Gratitudes: 1. I and my family are healthy 2. As much as it sucks, we were diligent to save our tax return, and at least have the money to build a room for Son 1. 3.
