let there be light...

you know that weird phenomenon (phenomena?) where you run out of or everything breaks at once?

I had a torchiere lamp forever and it finally died.  I'd also like to say that considering where I work, I should have gotten rid of that torchiere lamp a long time ago.  (my friend Bendy mentioned to me once that it was probably not smart to own something with "torch" in its name and he was right!!!  many moths quickly went up in flames on account of that lamp, ick the stink!)

remember the shower door incident?  and since I've had my huge boxy television forever, I was worried I'd have to replace that too and I don't want to have to buy a tv right now.  annnnd, oh geez, my car!!!

is there an anti-jinx for typing that out loud?  yikees!

besides I need new running shoes.  I have my priorities  : .)

then again, its funny I'd say that b/c as of yesterday, I had not worked out for 11 days.  eleven days!!!  (the not working out plan was not a good idea!)

this is only the third time since I was 16 that I've gone without consistently and regularly working out.  the first time was in 2004 when I went to France for 13 days  (we did do a lot of walking), the second was when I tore a disc (disk?) in my back in 2007 and couldn't work out for a few months, and the third was the current "incident" which was on account of my b-day a week and a half ago!

Speedy ran with me at lunch on Wednesday.  not only was I really happy that evening (yay for endorphins!), but I slept 9.5 hours that night and had a really good day Thursday (kinda been in a slump since that fateful b-day/week).

well, until I had to decide whether or not to go to cycle class this evening.

if I learned anything on my little hiatus, its that I NEED my ENDORPHINS.  so I forced myself to go to class, sweat buckets, and had a pretty swell time!!!  LOL!!!

considering my good mood, I think I can do a 5 good things for today list:

1)  perspective, endorphins, sweat!
2)  compliments on my art from my newest bloggy pal!  (thanks Penny! : .)
3)  Pearl Jam concert series announcement!!!  I love Eddie!!! 
4)  the new lamp I got for ten bucks at my favorite store Target, hee, hee, hee!!!
