Just Checking In!


There are million things I should be doing right now, but ... I just  ... can't. Blogging has been on my mind a lot lately. I have seen it evolve from something so obscure (and weird to some) to being a common term that everyone knows now. In that time I have evolved too, as have many of my favorite bloggers. We have gone from writing regularly five times a week to rarely writing at all and coming back to regular blogging in small spurts of time.

I have considered giving blogging up many times and resorting to just reading blogs, but then I remember why I started blogging. I started because I like to write. I like to connect with people. I like the feeling of getting a comment and making that connection, which turns into a new friend.

So, I am still here, and here I will remain, but I am sure things will continue to be very sporadic! In the meantime, how about a little bulleted update, shall we?

  • We bought a house! We're in the new house and we love it! Since we moved in, we ripped out all the old carpet, painted all the walls and began pulling out the icky old flooring in the kitchen and started to tile the entryway, kitchen and a portion of the living room that is a walkway to the deck door. The house looks SO much better, and smells better too ... we moved into a house that was owned by smokers previously. It smelled AWFUL. Luckily, you cannot tell now! 
  • The wedding planning is going great! I ordered my invitations last night - finally! I am so excited to send them out. We have a long ways to go, but things are coming along and I know it will all get done ... 
  • School is done in exactly two weeks. We have 9 school days left. NINE. What. the. hell? Time seriously flew for me this year. It totally feels like I was just meeting these kids for the first time last week! It is amazing how much we have covered in a year and how much these fourth graders have changed in 9 months time. 
  • I am still working out 6-7 days per week. My running has taken a nose dive though, and I have been a Zumba fool lately. I'm actually considering not running the Dam to Dam half marathon on May 31st, because I have not kept up on my long runs. I am really sad about it, and honestly very, very torn, but I do not think it would be responsible to try and run that on very little distance training. Shockingly though, my pace has improved and when I do go out for shorter runs, I am holding a 10 minute pace, which is amazing for me! 
How have you been?? Let me know in the comments what is new in your life!!
