Drama, drama, drama

... and it's not even mine!

Life is a tad stressful right now... Let me start by saying that I love my family and friends dearly. I'm glad they feel comfortable with me to share their feelings and come to me if they need an ear and shoulder for support. But... all this has happened in the last few days...
  • The ongoing stress of JP's dad's health (getting stronger everyday - thanks for all your "get well" thoughts!)
  • A girlfriend that lives too far away is going through a tough time. Dumb boys. :)
  • Some dear friends are going through a rocky phase (?) in their marriage
  • Stupid bridesmaids. No bridezilla here, it's her dumb other bridesmaids. (I am by far the best maid of honor EVER!) :)

My "to-do" list is getting out of control and I'm trying not to get overwhelmed.

Saturday is the bachlorette party -- SUPER EXCITED! I fly out for Houston on Sunday night. I return Tuesday and fly out to Phoenix on Thursday. Return on Saturday morning. So lots to get ready!!!!

On a good news note, the doctor said I'm doing great and I can start walking more and ease into running. She stressed it was running 1 mile one day, 1.5 miles the next day if I'm okay, 2 miles the next day... no jumping into an "easy" 5-miler. I'm really pleased with this and ready to start getting out there again. You know, after all the craziness dies down a bit.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

When did life get so crazy? It's happening to me too.

Great news that you can ease into running again. Woot!

Boys are dumb. Has she tried women? Just a thought. Women work for me. ;)

Good luck with all the drama. And have fun at the party!!

My thoughts are you and JP. I hope his dad gets well soon.

Congrats on starting to run soon. I hope to be back out there very soon as well, and it's going to be a run/walk method too.

You seem to always be at weddings or Bachelorette parties. Busy, busy girl.

Have a great weeekend!

It happens. But at least none of it is directly yours!
