So, a few months ago, something happened. Everyone found out about this blog, and I felt exposed.
So I shut this shit down.
However, I miss blogging and writing, so I am back. Also, this blog acts as a diary of sorts for me, and I like having a place to write about my best times. Really, this whole thing is for me. And you are all just along for the ride. (Hi Paul.) So while I keep my innermost secrets in my private journal that is hidden in my apartment, this serves as a family-friendly version of my life.
So welcome back into it. Buckle up, it's a helluva ride.
Some stuff has happened since I last wrote.
1. I went to see my aunt in Vancouver, Washington. It was ridiculous fun. It was really hard to come home, and I spent a few days in a pretty bad little funk after I returned. Sometimes real life just sucks, you know?
3. I am pretty sure Miss is going to try to convince me to continue with these races in 2016. I don't mind them, but since I joined Farrell's I have sucked hard at running. The July race was an epic failure for me - it was really hilly and I was coming off an 11 day vacation from working out. I seriously almost died. Okay, that is an exaggeration. But I did yell at the race volunteers and say fuck a lot. Anyway...while I'm not sure I'm on board yet, she did convince me to commit to a February run with her...in Florida...at Disney! Disney Princess 5K, here we come!
4. Speaking of working out, I am still at Farrell's. If you are reading this and you are even a little interested in the program, let me know. I have never enjoyed running, and I just did it because it was the best way to burn calories. But I LOVE kickboxing. There is something about punching a bag that feels awesome! However, our coaches tell us to act like the bag is a person we want to hit - and everyone I want to punch is a lot taller than me, so I am often punching towards the top of the bag. But, since Missy is into this 5k thing and I do admit, it is good for me and SOMETIMES I miss running, I am trying to incorporate more running into my life. Right now it is 3-4 miles 3-4 times a week. I don't know that I will ever run a half again. And I'm totally fine with that.
5. Missy and I went to Sioux City for a night and saw Seether and Three Doors Down with my brother's new boo. She's awesome. Yes, my brother has a new boo - which means two of my siblings have now been married and divorced before I have even been married once. #itsawesome But considering my brother is like a new person now and actually seems to be happy (actually their sappiness is sickening sometimes), I can handle that.
8. I turned 35.
