So I have to say that I’ve been increasingly concerned that blogging is incompatible with my life! Which – frankly sucks because I’ve always loved it so. So – I’m not willing to give up on it, but I do apologize it’s been so scarce! Between a full-time demanding job, a full-time demanding grad school program, a busy family, and life in general – it get’s tough sometimes. But…I’ll keep blogging when I can and hope it gets more frequent than it has been!
To be honest, I have not spent nearly enough time in the kitchen of late. Another things I feel has been sacrificed to the grad-school gods! That doesn’t mean there aren’t good eats though 🙂 Life is too short for icky food!
Here’s a few things I’ve noshed on in the past couple weeks.
D and I occasionally do “smoothie selfies”!
Re-joining the Y has been a really good thing. While I still prefer to run outside, it’s a nice alternative when I can’t. I’ve started going 3 days per week to weight lift and either run there or at home. It’s not as consistent as I’d like yet, but so far, so good! I’ve taken a few classes too, but group exercise classes are rarely my favorites!
Well you know. Work. School. Family. Puppy. Those all take up most of my time 🙂
Can’t complain about any of them though. My current term at school is wrapping up and we head into exams next weekend. Lot’s of projects, papers, and cases to fill my evenings.
Work has been steady, but not overly crazy – which is nice. Had one quick work trip since I’ve gotten back from China, but it was just an overnighter.
Family has been very great. M and A are both moving up in responsibilities at work, which is great for them. A is also doing great in her very own apartment and balancing that, work, and school. R finished up 7th grade just yesterday! D is always pretty awesome, and everyone has been healthy.
Kuma is a total sweetie. She potty trained quickly to the bells on the back door, and she’s wicked smart. Stubborn too, but that’s why she’s in puppy school!
Ending with pics!
Bumble and Ginny!
Other fun stuff!
