Baby Bunnies And Sorting


Training day six consisted of literally dragging myself to the gym after a horrible night of no sleep.  Thanks to Mother Nature unleashing the most intense thunder and lightning storm I have ever experienced. Have I mentioned I am dreadfully afraid of thunder and lightning? And just in case you were wondering hiding under the covers with ear buds in and the volume turned all the way up doesn’t deter the house shaking when the thunder hits.All I could think of were fires and big earthquakes. I haven’t felt quite that terrified since the last time I saw a snake. Or a clown. And I can run away from the clown and snake. Thunder and lightening, not so much. It was a long night.


Back to the gym.

Perhaps it was a good thing I was tired. I powered through my machines, 15 burpees, 15 sit-ups and 20 push-ups like a boss. However, I am wondering how much of a boss I will feel like when I see my trainer tomorrow?


The past few days I have been feeling out of sorts. I am not able to identify why just yet. And I feel different but I can’t describe how.  I am guessing it’s a personal growth spurt of some kind since I have an overwhelmingly large amount of feelings that I can’t seem to find a place for. Running has helped, but only long enough for the euphoria to wear off. Usually writing helps, but this time, not so much. The good news is, the house is extra clean and I have started the process of sorting through my clothes. Nonetheless whatever is going on with me feels overwhelming and I hope to have all my feelings sorted out soon.


I have yet to break any pace records, but I have had perhaps the best run I have had in a while. The interesting part was it started out f-ing awful. Like 5 minutes in f-this, I am cutting through the neighborhood and going back home awful. But I didn’t. I kept going. And before I knew it I was lost in the moments of simply running. Feeling alive. No worries. And no feelings to find a place for.

When I was almost home, I didn’t want to stop. I passed the house and weaved through the neighborhood for another mile before the looming darkness decided I had better head for home. It was pure bliss. 












Meet the new editions to our furry family, Ginger (left) and Pepper (right). I have wanted to get bunnies for a while.  I planned to build a bunny hutch, but I found a gently used hutch at a garage sale. Score. I brought it home, disinfected it and it was as good as new.  Much to my surprise Buckaroo was not only interested in getting bunnies, but he wanted to go with me to pick out one. He chose, and named Pepper, me Ginger. Both are females. Buckaroo also helped me set up the hutch and get them both settled. And since, we take them out and let them cruise the yard a few times a day. And they hang out with Buckaroo in his room. To snuggle. Have I mentioned they snuggle? I am grateful to have found yet another small way to connect with Buckaroo. Believe me, being a mother to a nearly 15-year-old boy, finding a way to connect feels and is, extra challenging at times.


Well, I am off  to sort through more feelings and clothes. No word on the job for the county I applied for. According to their website, I have moved to the final step prior to either testing or an oral interview. But that was a week ago and I haven’t heard anything! It’s driving me a little crazy. Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!

  1. Storms are headed our way tonight, so, I can empathize. I hope that today’s workout and snuggle time with the bunnies helped re-energize you after a night of internal and external storms. I have been off my game this week, but as usual, your drive and determination have re-awakened my inner boss, and I am being true and bossy:) Sending you positive vibes for the job, training, and life in general!


    • Oh heavens hopefully the storms headed your way will be mild! The unexpected nature of the thunder and lightening with little rain after 90+ degree weather was a plain craziness!
      I hope hope your week gets even better! And thank you for the positive vibes! I have to keep reminding myself whatever is meant to be, will be! Easier said than done though 😉


      • Luckily, our weather people were wrong once again, and we barely had any rain this time. I hope we both do not have to endure storms of any sort for quite awhile, so, that we may find refuge in the calm after the storms!

        One thing that I tell myself is that no matter what happens, it is for the best, even if it feels the worst, and that I am thriving and making progress. I definitely do not always feel that way, but more and more, I am beginning to embrace the uncertainty of life and not focus on outcomes, at least for now:)


      • Oh good! I too hope we are able to find refuge in the calm after the storms! ❤

        I try to remind myself the same, but in the moment it doesn't feel very comforting sometimes. I am learning to "let go" of what I think should happen more, and doing my best to focus on the things that are in my "power". One day a time! 🙂


  2. I usually have the best runs when I am convinced I just couldn’t possibly feel better. (GB running!! Had an amazing 4 miler today) And don’t worry, we all go through slumps–and it sounds as if you are redirecting your energy in a very useful way, and the bunnies! You gotta luv the bunnies. I used to have one named Silent Footsteps…a dwarf.

    A very charming post–love the conversational tone–and great pictures. 🙂


    • Yes, exactly! 🙂
      The bunnies are lil loves! I haven’t had bunnies since I was a child and I had forgotten how social and sweet they are 🙂 Silent Footsteps is such a darling name!
      And thank you! 🙂


  3. I get that feeling too! The first 5 mins I feel I’m aching all over but after 40mins, I feel good that I do not want to stop! 🙂 It just sucks that its already rainy season here in manila 😦
