PORN??

Not really – unless you want to know that it’s your last chance to get 20% off Shoebuy’s birthday sale. (I hope the link works – it is an ’email exclusive.’)

I am in a funk lately. Not sure what’s going on, but when I’m home I have no real motivation. No motivation to cook or clean or do important shoe porn research.

When I’m at work, I am the master of motivation. I am getting things done ahead of schedule. I am spreadsheeting like the wind, people.

And last night – no trouble doing my run post-work. But the minute I walked into my house, instant apathy.

Blah. I actually got so distracted by other stuff I even forgot I was writing this.

So – sorry, no shoes for the 2nd week in a row. I’ve only purchased 1 pair (with my own $$ – I got a pair with a gift certificate) in the last 15 months, and that is the saddest story ever.

At least the weather will be nice the next few days – and I had a great 5 mile hill run last night – so not everything sucks.  My secret (not anymore) resolution is to not be negative anymore. I don’t always want to be the person that can’t find a bright (or at least less dark) side, who has nothing positive to say about the situation I’m in – because dammit! If things are that miserable, I wouldn’t be here, right? I’d e finding a plae where I was happy. And I am happy – I love Portland. I like my job. I adore my husband. Life is good. Dammit.

  1. Life is good dammit! That’s a GREAT motto. I will now repeat it to myself a thousand times and try to get out of my own similar funk. Peace!

  2. yea don’t be so negative! there’s always a silver lining. kelley hates it when i start telling her shit like that. she calls me “pollyanna” and opens a bottle of wine.

  3. Mr. Pi calls me negative nancy. I’ve been in a major rut lately. I wouldn’t say I’m happy with everything in my life but most things…I should start using your Life is Good Damnit line.

  4. I think I get super sucked into other people’s negativity (Heartless Girl!). But I generally like being happy!! That’s why I moved to Portland – to be happy! And yes, things majorly suck a lot, but being a cry baby about doesn’t seem to help me. I need to remember your motto way more often! And maybe take Prozac! ha ha

    fruit – I used fresh strawberries, but so far I’ve used frozen piineapple, blueberries, and mango. Way less work!

  5. Life is Good, Dammit! Love this. Some times you have to force a good mood but it eventually takes. I need to do this too, thanks for the reminder. 🙂

  6. i’m not usually someone that can talk myself out of a funk, but lately just knowing that i have a job and a place to live, car to drive, etc. has been enough to keep my chin up. i have several friends that have been laid off in the last few months and it scares the crap out of me to think of where i’d be if that happened to me. so…when i think of the alternatives, i’m able to keep my focus fairly positive.

    but i really do like “Life is Good, Dammit!” 🙂
