Feel Good Friday Fragments {7.23.10}

It's Friday, and I want to feel good. Don't you? I found out that my friend Liz over at Eternal Lizdom is hosting Feel Good Friday this week for The Girl Next door while she enjoys herself a blogacation. I needed some "post relief" as my son calls it (on his blog) and this meme is just the ticket! It's simple, and easy. Just make a list. List 5 things that made you really happy this week. No matter how bad or boring you think your week was, I bet you can find 5 things.

Wanna feel good too? Hop on board and check out:

Onto the feely goody stuff!

1. This week was the end of my Quantum Wellness 21 day cleanse. I feel great about the entire experience. I lost some weight, my skin looks great, I'm not as anxious, and I've developed some great eating habits as proven yesterday on my 1st off the diet. I did really well, and that makes me happy!

2. I started a 21 day fitness challenge for myself on Thursday. The 21 day thing really worked well for me, so for the next 21 days I am committing to dedicate an hour each day to working out. I may have to break it up into 3-4 sessions because of my super mad cRaZy schedule, but I am on board!

3. I started day 1 of the C25K (Couch to 5k) program yesterday. I did it! I walked a brisk walk for 5 minutes at 3 mph, followed by a rotation of 60 seconds running at 5mph, and 90 seconds of walking at 3mph for 25 minutes. That makes me super happy!

4. No one has fallen ill this week, and I've been able to maintain my regular work schedule. I've been getting reports entered earlier, and that means I can dedicate more night time when it's quiet to reading, bloggin, and journaling. This makes me a happy person!

5. We added several new members to our family this week. We now have 2 Guinea pigs, and 5 fish. I am very happy to report that all of the kids have been pitching in to feed all of our critters (both dogs included), sweep up after them, clean out cages, and spend time loving on them. This makes me very happy. I love seeing responsibility in the kiddos!

While I am here I might as well join Mrs4444 at Half-past kissin' time for Friday Fragments. I love me some fragments on Friday!

Mommy's Idea

On Monday our car broke down. It's the transmission. This was not good. Nothing good can come from Monday.

Tuesday. I had no car. Staying at home without transportation is a bit torturous for me. I will admit that I had nowhere to go, and typically on Tuesdays I stay in my jammies until 2pm and never leave the house, but just the idea that I was stuck with my 2 feet and 4 kids in tow was kind of depressing.

On Wednesday we took the car to the dealership. They called at 2pm to announce the repairs were going to add up to somewhere close to $ 2,500. Good grief. Wednesday didn't pan out to be much better than Monday...or Tuesday!

On Thursday I had a customer walk up to me and say "Excuse me. Would you FETCH me these shoes in a size 9." Ohhhh lady...let me tell you!

My verbal reply? " I cannot fetch those for you. I do not work here. I'm sure the gentleman that is working in footwear would be happy to get those for you. He's the young man in the green polo with the name tag that says "insert store name here".

My mental reply? What the hell do you think I am? A dog? No, I will not FETCH you anything. I appreciate you asking if I WOULD instead of telling me I COULD, and way to end that question with a Thank you...oh didn't. Some people have a lot of nerve!

I sure hope Friday brings some funnies because Monday -Thursday kinda stunk!

Happy Friday Fragments!


  1. Bummer about the car repair costs :-( But yay for pets and helpful kids! Have a great weekend :-)

  2. Congrats on adding more pets to your family. We have quite a zoo, ourselves.
    That lady in the store - ugh! Good for you for keeping your cool.

  3. Ew, I hate expensive car repairs :(

    I did C25K a few years ago and it was awesome. Good luck!

  4. I love that you are doing C25K!! Once I get my leg muscles strong in the right places for my new running form, I'll be starting it again, too. I'm using week 1 as a guide for my workouts now but I'm not moving on or even doing 3x per week until I strengthen up my arches and calves.

    Yay for new pets!! I hope they have fantastic names. :)

    Thanks for linking up for FGF, Lety!

  5. Well, I don't know how I got here but I'm going to follow you. And I'm going to do a Feel Good Friday post. I love the header.

  6. Car promblems stink and that was a doozy! And I hate rude people too!!! Hope the next week was better.
