Just Another Manic Monday

This past weekend has been a roller coaster of craziness. To say the least. Small recap: Friday I found out one of my co-workers passed away. It's been hard to deal with, especially since I had to give the news to some of our customers. Saturday I had to work to help finish up inventory. In addition, I found out that the 5k I was supposed to be running in Sept is now cancelled! Long story short, as of right now Run or Dye is saying no refunds. Local news is working to change that. Their BBB score is officially an F. #wtf. Sunday I had to do some community service to get some hours knocked out. (LONG story on that one). So now it's Monday. I'm mentally and physically exhausted.

However, it is Monday... and that means it's time to show our Grateful Hearts! Linking up with Emily.

Grateful Heart linkup w/ Ember Grey

Today, I'm mostly grateful for all of my friends. This includes old and new ones. On Friday when I posted to twitter that I was having a rough day, I had so many lovelies reach out to me to see if I was OK. Let me tell y'all it really meant a lot. I did listen to the advice y'all gave me and it helped a lot, but I really wish I didn't have so much that happened this weekend too! Seriously though, thank y'all so much for helping me relax and cheer up. 

I'm also grateful that some of the issues that happened last week are over and done with. 
I'm grateful to have working utilities in my house.
I'm grateful to have a great job
There's a lot of things. I'll be reminding myself of them all this week.

What are you grateful for?


  1. Glad to hear things are looking up! And no refunds? No way they'll get away with that!

  2. No refunds?! That is insane!
    I am grateful for the blogging world, lets me somewhat escape reality (this messy house & bills that need to be paid) for a little while! :)

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your coworker! And that is crazy about the race - how could they not refund?! Unfortunately I think a lot of people had rough weeks last week, dang it. I hope this one is much, much better :)

  4. Sorry to hear about your co-worker. That's so sad. That's crazy about the race they should TOTALLY refund your money! Visiting from the linkup. :) Have a great rest of the day!

  5. Here's hoping for a better week ahead! I can not believe that they won't give refunds. That is horrible and sooooo wrong! Funny we both had similar posts today. Great minds think alike!

  6. Great look at the future and not getting trapped in the bad things from the past. Love it!

  7. I'm glad everything is working out :)

  8. Melissa, I'm so sorry to hear about your coworker. :( I hope that you are having a better week this week and that everyone in your office is coping ok with the loss.
    Aren't friends wonderful? They really can just lift you up when you need a pick-me-up, raise our spirits, bring a much-needed smile to our faces.
    Sending you lots of wishes for a good week and a great weekend!
