I suppose the high of a great 2011 is what’s making these hard times in 2012 so rough. Weez’s grandmother passed away last week, just a few days after my uncle passed. We’ve cried a lot, it’s been an emotional time, but I’m so thankful Weez and I have each other out here in Colorado. Weez can read the look on my face and know when I need a hug or a laugh. He wiped the tears from my face last night and suggested we get out of the apartment for a dinner date night at one of our fav places, Olive Garden.
Every time we go to Olive Garden, we stay for hours, chatting, eating breadsticks galore, laughing, and always reminiscing that the OG was our first date. It’s the place we sat well past closing time, while they vacuumed around us. A really great memory. Last night we daydreamed about our future; travel and children and work. We have so much life ahead of us; everyday is a blessing; our recent losses remind us not to take our days for granted. The date night was just what I needed.
We’re traveling this weekend to be with family for the services, and I’m thankful for my friend who’ll be watching Cabo for us. Cabo is officially 6 months now. Okay, twist my arm, I’ll post a few more photos of her :)
I apologize for the super poor camera phone quality here, but this photo cracks me up… puppy laser eyes!
My girlfriends came over for our weekly Girls Night on Monday, and Cabo, of course, was lovin’ the attention and jumping all over them. You know you’ve got good friends when they tolerate the hyper puppy phase, and maybe even love it :)
Cabo recently discovered her tail, and loves chasing it. I caught it on video over the weekend, and I think it’s pretty cute, so I wanted to share this video with you guys.
Besides a loving husband, good friends, and a cuddly puppy, working out/running has been a great release as of late. I’ve been hitting the gym or trails every morning for the past week. I’m sore from lifting Monday and today, and my legs feel like runner legs again. I’ve got 400’s on the track lined up for tomorrow. Running and breathing hard gets me out of my head and brings peace to my soul. We all need that sometimes. I’m glad running can do that for me.
How do you best cope/release stress?
Where was your first date with your husband/bf/signif?
