Girls Best Friend


Nothing like a 5 mile sunrise walk with one's pup to soothe one's soul.

I've had a rough week--planning a trip to NJ next weekend for Dad's cemetary plot unveiling and having to discuss Hospice with a patient's family just took so much out of me. I'm quietly soothing myself, with the wonderful help of those closest to me (and wonderful blogger pals who have made soothing comments) so I'm slowly coming back to myself.

My running is going real well, and I'm looking forward to Saturdays morning run--or rather the breakfast afterwards to hear the NYC Marathon stories.

and so it goes.......

Well I am glad to hear things are going well with your running. In life when everything is going wrong sometimes the best you can do is focus on 1 thing that is positive in life like your running and do it. amasing how good that works.

You have a hard job you amase me that you are able to do that. I do not think I could do it. Its ok to have a rough week since well you are only human.
