Hi y'all.

Welcome to my blog. I write about everything here - successes, failures and stumbles in healing my heart, my home, my health and a sailboat.

Funk and Random Ramblings

Ramblin' On

Random Thought No. 1
I cannot tie knots to save my life - and one day I may have to - or at least to save my boat.

I can tie a line from a boat onto a cleat and vise versa but standing in my bedroom trying to make a simple bowline - forget it. arrrrrgh so frustrating! But I'll get it. It takes practice.

Random Thought No. 2
My physical therapist cleared me to run a 5K next week - it will be ugly and slow but it's a suds run so there will be craft beer after - yay. I ran 3 miles today - 2 in a row without a walk in between and then another mile after physical therapy.

Not So Random Thoughts

m in a funk today - found out some truths about my last relationship that were tough to swallow. Let's just say the songs I have been playing all day have the lyrics "I hate you so much right now" and "Since you've been gone, I can breath again. I'm so movin' on."

This is probably very healthy.

To help me out of the funk I got busy - what's that in "Shawshank Redemption" - "Get busy living or get busy dying." 

I want to be busy living. 

1. First I chatted online with sisters Heather and Summer - funny, smart, thoughtful women who are encouraging and loving and just, well awesome.

2. The run and PT

3. I changed my air conditioner filter. Ok, it was 3 months late, but I finally did it. I was busy having my heart broken and dealing with life. My pulmonologist wouldn't be happy - don't tell him.

4. I visited friends at the marina where I work on weekends, taking them some pictures from the weekend to hang on the walls.

5. I went to my friends' Chris and Jess's 4-year-old daughter's flag football game.  Too funny and adorable!

6. Jess and I sneaked away and went to beach yoga. BEACH YOGA - nothing better. 

7. I stopped at Joey's Pizza for the best calamari ever made - spicy, buttery, delicious. I got it to go and returned to the marina for no. 8.

8. I went fishing on a perfect night filled with stars and a soft breeze.

Here fishy fishy

Funk be gone, I say!
