Okay, so I hope that this is the last long absence between blogs. I’ve had a lot of personal issues going on – that I’m not going to go into detail over – but needless to say, my energies have been focused elsewhere. I think about blogging often, and I’ve missed it. As things are hopefully stabling out here, my posting will go back to being much more consistent. Thanks for sticking with me!
Well, two weeks of eats have been more than I can probably document, but I sure am going to try! Most of these have been on the road (as I’ve done a ton of traveling the past week).
I went for a run last night and it was just brutal. I struggled through the entire thing, and that was a very demoralizing feeling. I do feel like my fitness levels have dropped the past few months, and it’s time to focus on rebuilding base mileage and strength. It sounds weird, but I’m really looking forward to it! I have a lot of fitness related resources around me, so taking advantage of them shouldn’t be difficult for me as long as I make the time!
The past several weeks have been a whirlwind of chaos, fear, sadness, stress, but with some happy times thrown in too. To but it bluntly, it’s been highly overwhelming. I don’t often put myself at the top of my to-do list, but that’s something I want to work on. Something that I need to work on. I need to understand that I can be there for others without sacrificing my own well being. So yeah, new goal for me!
We took a short trip this past week to Florida, which was mostly wonderful. It was a break (mentally and physically) I didn’t realize I needed. I will admit that I had some guilt too in going, but I’m mostly over that. I didn’t take too many pictures (D did that!), but I know that R and M had a great time, and that was the whole point anyway!
Today is my first full day back home. I’m doing meal planning, grocery shopping, garden planning (planting next weekend!), laundry, organizing, and a few other things I need to get done. And through it all, I’m so excited to do something routine and mundane! Yes, I’m craving boring! Not sure how long that will last, but for now, that’s my plan. I’m all “excited” out!.
So, I hope your Sunday is exactly what you want it to be!
