Running from the Law: Sometimes...

Tuesday, March 22, 2011


For me, this blog has always been a happy place where I can share my life, my thoughts and my adventures with my friends and family and readers. It’s a little slice of the best of my world and I like to put a positive spin on things. That’s just me – I’m generally a pretty happy person. But sometimes not everything is rainbows and sunshine around here. I have bad days too. So, instead of posting something that feels forced and fake, or instead of not posting at all, I want to post about how I’m feeling today - crummy. Honestly, it’s just not a good day. It happens. Don’t worry, I’m fine, I’ll get over it. I’m just having a bad day and wanted to talk about it. Sometimes it helps to write it down…right?

Sometimes things just don’t work out how you want them to.

Sometimes it’s ok to cry about it.

Sometimes it’s better to suck it up and move on.

Sometimes it hurts so deep in my soul that I think I’m broken.

Sometimes it helps to talk about it.

Sometimes it doesn’t.

Sometimes I physically ache for what I want but can’t have.

Sometimes I’m overwhelmed by just how lucky and loved I am.

Sometimes a month feels like an eternity.

Sometimes a week goes by in the blink of an eye.

Sometimes it’s easy to hide.

Sometimes it finds you even when you’re hiding.

Sometimes I cry out of pure happiness.

Sometimes I scream out of frustration.

Sometimes I have to laugh because I’m so scared.

Sometimes I think I know what I’m doing.

Sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing at all.

Sometimes I’m engulfed in jealousy.

Sometimes I’m reminded that someone out there might be jealous of me.

Sometimes people just don’t know what to say.

Sometimes I hear exactly what I need to get by.

Sometimes rainy days feel like the world is weeping with me.

Sometimes the sun wraps me in a blanket of warm love.

Sometimes friends are the answer.

Sometimes friends are the cause of the pain.

Sometimes it makes sense to just come clean.

Sometimes you have to speak in code.

Anyone else out there having a crummy day?  Margaritas on me tonight. :-)


  1. Awhhh, honey. I love you so much. I'm so sorry. I hope things start to look up. You know I'm here.

    Also, PS. check out my blog post from last week, hopefully it'll make you smile.


  2. Did you literally crawl into my head and write this? I've been living the "sometimes it's ok to cry" part. I'm so, so sorry you're hurting.

    I have been missing you. And I'm glad you're back! I'm glad you're back and just being realIt is so, so crazy that you wrote this. And it's so weird to think that you, my blog-land friend could be experiencing feelings so close to my feelings. Crazy how God does that and gives me a feeling so deep of compassion and love for you because I am walking in your shoes. Hang in there!

  3. not today, but i've had my share. sometimes you get bad news from a doctor. sometimes you just really want an Uncrustable but there's none left.

    bad days are bad days no matter what the cause of it is. <3

  4. I wish I could give you a giant hug. :(
    I hope things turn around for you!

  5. Crummy days suck. Hang in there!

  6. Thinking of you! Hope your day turns around : )

  7. I'm sending you a gigantic bear hug! Tomorrow will be a better day, and I hope you know that many people care about you!

  8. I wish I had the right words to say but I don't know what they are. Just know that it's okay to have a crummy day and to cry or scream or do anything that makes you feel better. If I could hop a plane right now, I'd buy the margaritas. And the queso. Becuase what goes better with margaritas then queso? Thinking of you friend and hoping wonderful things happen in your life. xoxo

  9. Hope your week gets better soon! :)


  10. I'm so glad you wrote about it. You don't have to be positive all the time, we all love you no matter what. You are an incredibly strong woman, but that doesn't mean you have to be superwoman 24/7. Giant hugs!!!!

  11. Aw, I'm sure it feels so much better to just get it all out and write about it. We all have those days..and ya know, I think those days are good for the soul. Hope your week gets better! :)

  12. Love you sweet girl. Life isn't always rainbow sprinkles and puppy dogs. Thinking of you.

  13. You're right - sometimes life just kinda sucks and not talking about it makes it worse.

  14. Lovie, I'm right there with you - although I have to admit - lately, it feels like a sucky year! 2011 = fail so far.

  15. I was just thinking of you the other day and made a mental note to check in on you - but I was traveling without regular access to a computer and then this post popped up. I hope you are okay - I wish I could do something for you, but know that I'm thinking of you.

  16. How about a cyber-margarita? Thanks for being real and honest. I think as women we are either encouraged to be quiet about our woes or encouraged to be drama. I like your kind of balance.

  17. Sorry things aren't going so well - but you can see that tons and tons of people love you and are wishing you well. Sending you good thoughts and virtual margaritas. :)

  18. Thinking of you! xoxo
