Brrr it was a little chilly this morning! Found my slippers(pink of course) and trotted into the kitchen to turn my kettle on and feed the meowing beasties! I had to have my tea before running! Had to!! TEA! Velcro knew something was up because my running stuff was out and on the bed-then I was putting it on! She knew it was time for a run!
Now, I'm usually in a pretty good mood but this morning I woke up in a shitty mood! Cranky, teary and it's not even that time of the month! But I have financial things on my mind! December is a notoriously slow time in the film business! December 18th will be the last day of work for any film or tv show until January 4th. That's a little over 2 weeks of no work which means no paycheck! That's a hard thing at Christmas. And an even harder thing for me since I haven't been on a full time job! To add to it. My son's tuition is due in full at the beginning of January along with a partial housing payment! Yeah worrying about $$$ really sucks! And it made me cranky, pissy and upset this morning! I've been able to give my son everything, as a single parent, but sometimes my strong tough exterior gets smacked down. That was me this morning!
A run was necessary for my mental well being!! But it took at least a mile to get me out of my funk! Velcro so knew something was up! She kept looking up at me and grabbing the leash! I always tell her I love her when we are running and pet her head! She then knows that everything is ok-i hadn't done that yet and she was egging me with that look and the leash grab! She was trying her doggie darndest to get out of my funk!! That is why Velcro is such an amazing dog! She knows me better than any man has ever understood or known me! She knows when I'm down and knows how to get me out of my funk! How could I run angry with such a cutie pie pounding the pavements with me at 430am? She put a smile on my face!! And I fiished my run feelng better and decided running some sprints in my breezeway would end this run perfectly! Yeah, Velcro was looking at me like I was nuts!!
I feel better!! Not great but better! I still have money woes-but what is new! The life of a single parent with a financially non-existent ex. But all is good!! I'm healthy, I have a job-not full time right now but I'm working and I have an amazing family!! I can pull thru this funk!!!
And I feel better writing it all down! So thank you!
I'm working today-on NCIS. Here today and tomorrow and then Private Practice on thursday! 3 days of work is better than zero days of work!
RUN: 3.0 miles at 430am w/Velcro (41:09)
