How is it already halfway through September?! A few more weeks and the leaves will be turning and hopefully it will cool off a bit. It did cool down to the 70s for a week or so, but it’s supposed to get back up to the 90s again. Gross. Don’t get me wrong, I usually … Continue reading September already?!
Well, Elinor is two months old today! How has it already been two months?! Her check up isn’t until next Tuesday, but she’s getting so big, I know her numbers are going to shock me. She was 20 inches long and 7.11 lbs when she was born, and by the time we got to her … Continue reading Two months?!
Well, I put in three grueling weeks to start the school year, and maternity leave is FINALLY here! Yes, that’s right. It starts today and I don’t know when I’m going back! Actually, I do… I scheduled it for six weeks, so I’m technically supposed to be going back the third week of October. But, … Continue reading The start of something great!
I feel like I should address my race plans for the rest of the year. The post I wrote about a month ago was pretty lofty, and due to recent events, I definitely won’t be meeting all of those goals. It would be nice if I could, but who am I kidding? First of all, … Continue reading Back to school things
Where have I been? Oh, let me tell you! This post was NOT easy to write. I’ve been holding on to this news for a long, LONG time. Well, depending on what stage of the process you know about, I guess. The circle gets smaller the closer we get to the reality of today. I’m … Continue reading Guess who’s back? Back again…
Second semester started yesterday, and I can already tell you getting off at 12 instead of 4 PM is going to be a game changer. I mean, I had time to drive up to Bogus and go mountain biking yesterday AND go out to dinner AND binge watch three episodes of The O.C.! Before, I … Continue reading Summer has arrived!
Happy Friday! It is, indeed, a happy Friday around here. It was the last day of the first semester of summer school! Which means not only was it a half day, but my time in summer school is halfway over. While it hasn’t been awful, it’s still work. Extra work. Work during a time when … Continue reading The curious instance of the 30 year old high school student
Monday. Ugh. Today, I’m diving into my schedule of running events for the next six months. Because what better way to make sure I actually run than to advertise my plans? AUGUST Elkhorn Relay Resort to Rock 10 miler I’ve been signed up for the Elkhorn Relay in Oregon for the last five months. Last … Continue reading Race Plans
So about the run. I didn’t go. But before you roll your eyes and think to yourself: I knew she wouldn’t do it...I did something better! Allow me to elaborate. I went on a solo adventure! Not a big one, but an adventure nonetheless. Given that I am a “6” on the Enneagram, this is … Continue reading Solo Adventure #1
Happy Saturday! Well I thought it would be easier to write once school got out. I was mistaken. I haven’t had nearly as much time as I had hoped for. Between a mini road trip after school got out and teaching summer school, I haven’t written anything. Not even my homework. So, here’s a short … Continue reading June Recap
