I have to say, last week felt like a bit of a downer week. For some reason I was totally in a funk and just could not get out of it!
I’m happy to say that this week has been much better 🙂
I can’t pinpoint just one thing that turned this week around, but I do know there are so many things making me smile this week.
I have to say it, my girlfriends are the best. They don’t hesitate to tell me when I’m acting like a crazy person and are always there for me. This week has been filled with emails, Facebook messages and texts and it’s just been wonderful!
I can’t say when my love affair with owls started, but now I want ALL THE OWLS. Wednesday evening I met a friend for dinner and a movie and when we were walking through the mall to the theatre the home decor display in Chapters caught my eye.
So many owls!
I want them all!
Now, I can’t say what I would do with them, or where I would put them, but I definitely want them.
So, if you’re thinking, “Hey, Ange is pretty awesome and I’d surely like to buy her something” there ya go. Owls, baby.
A New Training Program
I think the sign of a crazy runner is being excited when training for a new race. I started my sub-2 hour half marathon training program on Tuesday and I just love the feeling of working toward something.
Instead of running on Thursday I took the day off as my knee was a bit ouchy <– look at me being all running responsible!
I know normal people look forward to Friday because it’s the weekend, but I look forward to Thursday. I love knowing that Friday is just one sleep away (yes, I’m 30 and count in “sleeps”) and the awesome TV shows make the day even better!
Since I took the night off from running, I was perfectly content to chill on the couch with Merlin, an ice bag and a glass of wine and take in Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and Parenthood.
Since I live in a condo, I didn’t get any trick or treaters last week; however, I did buy Halloween candy. All for me. Muahahaha. I’m pretty sure it’ll take me forever to eat it, but that’s okay.
