Sad, Productive, Happy, and Tired

Yes all of those emotions are playing on me today big time. I've been on the emotional roller coaster on this beautiful fall Saturday.

Sad because we are losing a Cyster Courtney. She has decided to go home to God now. Courtney has fought such an amazing corageous battle these last several months. As saddened I am with the news, I am so proud of her bravery to do things on her terms and respect her decision immensely. Her sister started a blog for all of us to follow her journey, and I thank her for letting us share this time with them. Courtney will be missed so much, but I am happy for her to now be an Angel. We Love you Cyster....

Productive because I started and finished painting our upstairs hallway today. Did the upper half above the chair rail a dark cream color, and below a Mocha color. Looks awesome! I even did some touch ups to the Dining Room and Bathroom moulding. I started this morning around 10, after my mandatory coffee run ;) I finished this evening around 7. T.I.R.E.D. but productive!

I'm Happy because tomorrow starts the first of 3 Thanksgivings for us. We always celebrate Thanksgiving the Sunday before with Scott's family. I can't believe it's this time of year already, but It's my favorite and I'm trying to savor each moment.

I'm Tired because of the crying, emotions, physical labor, and running today. I'm following Ronnie's challenge while he is in the hospital. Deal is you have to either match his walking time, or a running time he gives you for each day while he's in the hospital. What a motivating thing to do! So today I completed a 23 minute run for us! After this day, I sure am beat! Night all.
