Random Wednesday

Just some random musings / happenings in my little world:

- Where has common courtesy gone?  If someone holds the door open for you, say "thank you."  If a car lets you out when they didn't have to, give them a friendly wave of appreciation.  If you bump into someone, say "excuse me."  I don't know about you, but these manners really do mean a lot to me.  It's the difference of whether I am going to be passive aggressive towards you, or not.

- Parents that are one their phone / computer - put your electronic devices away and parent your children!  I feel so bad for the kids I see who just want their parents to show them some affection.  It's sad, really.

- Have you ever felt so perfect for a job and do all that you can (volunteer, etc.) to land a position where you feel your passion lies and then get completely passed over and feel rejected?  Yeah, me, too.  I tried so hard to get on with this non profit that I feel so passionate / drive for.  They didn't have any openings for me, but created one for someone else.  Heartbroken doesn't begin to describe it.

- I have a love / hate relationship with coffee these days.  No matter when I fall asleep, I always feel so tired when I wake up.  I can't even remember the last time I woke up on my own rather than by the dogs / my alarm / Joel.  I'm not sure I can get through a day anymore without coffee.

- Today is National Run Day, and I'm actually looking forward to going for a run today.  I don't love running or anything, but today I want to.  I think I really needed that today for motivation. 
Why do I run?  To lose weight, gain confidence, and to become a healthier "me."  Although I'm not sure what I do is actually running, yet.

I am big on manners! Rude people really get under my skin, I can't handle it.

Amen to all of your thoughts. Except the I felt like doing nothing but lie in bed. I fought the feeling and went out to run errands, but there's no way I was energized enough to exercise.
