Those Moments In Life…


“Sometimes people with the worst pasts end up creating the best futures.”

ImageThose moments in life where you feel like crap and all you want to do is just cry…but you are too strong and don’t want to whine…today that was me and I tried to hold it all in.  I was up half the night and I could not sleep because I was so sore and thought I was going to throw up.  I laid around and finally got up at 9:30 to make coffee.  Then I sat on the couch until about 12:30.  I got to thinking about some pictures I had forgot to get from the ex boyfriend.  So I texted.  I did not think it was a big deal.  Well, then he gets all huffy because I text out of the blue and I ask for them and he thought they were his.  When you dump someone, why would you want to keep pictures of that person?  I said it should not matter to him because he dumped me and they are meaningless.  I won’t get into all of the details but I love how I am the jerk even though he dumped me in a text and was a complete piece of shit.  I told him that today and I am proud of myself.  I have been proud of myself because I have been over him for a while now and I feel great.  The more I think about it the more I realize how much I hate him and how he loved money and could never share his life with me.  He tried telling me I wasn’t over him.    Then he asked for money for the bike.  I never picked out the bike.  I am over him and I do not want it.  I would rather burn it than to keep it.  He told me with me giving away stuff I would end up in a cardboard box.  You know what???  I would probably still be happier!!!!!!


I cannot wait to get a new bike.  I told him I am getting rid of the bike and I could hear the steam coming out of his ears.  Too bad!!!!!

I am so proud though.  This picture I took earlier was before I went for my walk.  I was glad I went for a walk then talked to him.  I told him how I felt and I hope he gets the idea. 

ImageThose times in life where you feel is okay to cry because good times are coming.  Sometimes you just have to vent and then you can find that smile in there somewhere just waiting to get out.

Imageand it made me want to go for a walk even though I was sick…it was a short walk.   It seems like I just walked outside to my car and back but I went to the stream dressed all silly.

Imageyeah it was really rainy outside.

Imagebut I live by Limestone Creek…and it is really nice there…I went to the creek and just kind of relaxed until I froze…I think sometimes in life we need to stop in the middle of whatever craziness we are surrounded by and just relax…take in nature….

Imageand so no matter how sad and how awful I felt today, I ended my afternoon with a nice,…serene walk in the woods…sometimes that is all it takes to just find yourself on one of those crazy days…and at the end of the day, I realize just how wonderful life can be and that I deserve the best!!!!!  Andddd that he was stupid not to realize it…and he isn’t getting the bike back….  🙂

Today I went on a bike ride.  It was awesome.  It was amazing!  I loved the hard work I put into it.  I loved every minute of it except the fucking cold! It was so cold.  I was dying ha ha ha.  I would do it again in a heartbeat.  I biked a little shy of 14.5 miles and I was riding for 57 minutes. My top speed according to strava was 37.9 miles per hour on the my time was slow and I climbed about 700 feet.  I loved the feel and I like biking.  I am hoping to get a new bike and sell my felt if anyone is interested???


I wanted to run after, but I was just too cold.  I had the energy, but I have awful circulation so I needed to get my feet warmed up.  I am afraid someday I will have toes fall off or some dreadful story to share about a cat nibbling on me like I am food.


My diet is going well though it is only the first day.  I feel a little more tired than normal, but it has been a long day.  I miss Lilly and she did not want to leave me.  She cried and would not let me leave daycare today because she did not want to go with daddy.  Does it ever get easier?  I do not think so. 


I miss her already.

ImageI still can’t believe she will be four soon…April 20, 2014….

I cannot wait to take her into school…anyhow back to Chittenango Falls.


My family had get together parties at Chittenango Falls since I was little.  I loved going there and my relatives are buried in Chittenango.  I like going there and listening to the falls.  It is absolutely beautiful.  My pictures I post are often of there.  I have been to Pratts Falls, which is also nice…but I love Chittenango. 

This is my bike last year:  Image

I really wish I had taken a picture today but I wanted to make the climb today just to prove I was capable of it ha ha ha.  I made sure I used strava…otherwise it didn’t happen ha ha.


Tomorrow I am hoping to run and ride.  Let’s see if it works.

Have a good night…I am nervous about this weekend coming up.  I had the hometown advantage and I ran into a lot of people I knew but I do not have that this weekend and I do not have people at the finish line.  I just need to believe I can do it and put my heart into it and hope someday, someone will be at the end.  I hope anyways……
