The Good Life

Yesterday was a good day to take a break from taking photos of my life, so why don’t we just talk about what’s good in life instead of what I did, okay?

(That’s more interesting, anyway.)

You! The comments on my post yesterday (Is it ever okay to tell someone they’ve gained weight?) were amazing and span from absolutely to OH HELL NO. A few people mentioned that that’s what the scale is for. I know when I was gaining weight, I avoided the scale like the plague. I didn’t want to face it. But while I didn’t know the exact weight, I definitely knew I had gained weight, although I found any excuse in the world to deny it.

Working. This freelance gig is good, and I feel like a contributing member of society again. (Things that are not good? Cold offices. I’m currently double-fisting with a water bottle of normal temperature water and a little cup of hot water.)

Maine! I’m still going there this weekend, and I’m so excited to see Lindsay, Lizzy, and hopefully Joy. I’m excited for the half-marathon we’re running, but what I’m really excited for is lobster rolls. I love you all, but I love lobster more.

Getting in this morning’s three-miler despite a few adult beverages last night and blowing off yesterday’s run. Skipping that run made me so much more excited to run this morning. (And I was super-excited it was only three miles.)

Ali’s fundraising event tonight. I’m excited to support her, excited to get an I <3 Sweat t-shirt and excited to see new and old blog friends.

He may be in NJ right now (since I’m busy and then going away), but Bailey’s always a good thing. Even if he’s hungover.

Trying new lunch places. I tried a place called Fresh & Co. yesterday. Verdict? Not bad, but its sandwiches are totally trying to rip off Pret. This office is near Pump, so I’m pretty sure I will end up back there within days.

What’s good in your life right now?

    Awww yay! Thanks for the shout out. So excited you’re coming!

    Bailey is so drunk in that picture.

    Please bring me back a lobster roll from Maine. And give Lizzy a hug for me, with a side of jazz hands & a high five.

    The summer is good. In spite of some job concerns on my husband’s end, we are staying positive and enjoying every summer night after work with pool and BBQ 🙂 Last night’s speciality” Grilled Teriyaki Chicken with grilled pineapples on top – WINNING!

    after only 14 months, my boyfriend & i got all three of our homes down to the studs renovated & redecorated (despite these homes being in three different states). it meant a lot of trying times w/ contractors (who didnt always speak english or seem to care about finishing the project)& marathon shopping trips that cost boat loads of money, but we can now finally exhale, relax & enjoy the gorgeousness of them all. life is indeed good!

    Hi Theodora! It was great to meet you last night. Looking forward to HLS. No worries, You will be great!

    Let’s see. What is good in my life right now? My new skype account. I’ve been chatting with my mom on it. I can’t believe it took me 2 years to get it. We are setting up a weekly time to talk and I love being able to see each other.

    Enjoy Freeport, it’s one of my favorite places to visit – helo outlet shopping! Gritty McDuff’s has the best patio to try their seasonal ales. Hope your race goes well.
