A new month, a clean slate?

Good morning everyone.  For once I am actually feeling like it could be a good morning.

I just returned from the first training run of my three month marathon training program.  Today, I just had to do four and a half miles with two, thirty second sprints after.  I woke up early-ish (6:30) and was out the door in twenty minutes.  The run felt pretty good, all around, except that it must have been seventy-five perfect humidity.  I hope that the humidity lessens as the week goes on.

This weekend was... interesting... Friday afternoon I worked at the yarn store and received an email while I was there from the bride.  The short story, since I would prefer not to publish her email here, is that she blames me for a bunch of things (the most troublesome being that I did not go to her bridal shower, and in fact she said that the girl who sabotaged me's father was in the hospital, deathly ill, and she came to the shower - which I think is warped, to say the least) and did not have a hint of apology.  She said that she vomited when she read the email exchange between me and the other bridesmaids.  Anyway, I am mailing my declined invitation today and this is the end of our friendship.

Then, Friday night, there was a HUGE storm, and 1,000,000 people in northern Virginia and Maryland were left without power, including myself.  Saturday was a long, very hot day, as we waited for the power to come back.  Luckily, our power was returned by Saturday night, though there is a lot of debris and people have much damage and still no power all around the area.

There is not much else going on in my life right now, just working a lot, trying to figure out when I am going to run, and knitting.  Juan has been out of touch, working sixty-five hours a week and his phone is broken.  Hopefully he can fix is soon and talk to me again.  We've been emailing, but it makes me miss him a lot.

My weight is hovering around 135 right now.  Not horrific, but I should have been 125 and continued downward so long ago.  Maybe this training program will help me slim down.  I think losing weight would be good for my joints, frankly.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I know Lou Lou got the package I sent her, Dani is back to posting, and Isobel is cleansing like crazy!

The running should surely slim you down. Sometimes I wish I were a runner. I wonder how many friendships are destroyed over lead up wedding festivities. It's sad, but yours isn't the first and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Eurgh about wedding fiasco. Going to a shower when your father is dying is NOT NORMAL, nor does it make her a better friend.
UK has had storms and lots of flooding, not where I am but a lot of friends have slit and mud and destroyed furniture etc :(
Take care, lots of love xxx

Ooh I'm sorry you got caught in that bad storm, I heard about that. It also sucks about the wedding drama, but maybe it's for the best? I've been doing a lot better, I was decent enough today, though I had pizza instead of pasta, bit it's about the same amount of calories. Tomorrow I'm going to workout and start trying out some dance cardio and kickboxing cardio. Any suggestions for living room workouts? I have no stamina to run, and no self motivation.

It's a shame about your friendship ending with the bride, but at the same time, you really don't need any of that in your life. And you acted as maturely and as diplomatic as possible, so at least you should be confident that you did nothing wrong. <3

Hope you've recovered from that storm! I saw it on the news and I wondered about you.

It's always sad when a friendship ends, especially when it was sabotaged by a total dick.

Bloody hell that sounds like a whopper of a storm! I checked out news site but couldn't find anything. Then again, it's a very myopic small-country version of the news :/

Please look after yourself and stay well <3

I'm in Indiana, and we had the crazy storm, too. Glad you guys are okay. And here here for fresh starts!
