Highs and Lows from this week

High: I am getting more comfortable at work, getting to know more people, and I even got to participate in orientation today which meant doing my favorite thing ever - sitting around with total strangers and making them answer questions about themselves.

Low: It rained two evenings this week, so I couldn't go to my favorite new trail in Omaha and had to go to the gym instead (I'm taking a Farrells/kickboxing break right now).

High: On one of the nights it wasn't raining, I did get to go to my trail and finally really explore it. It is SO LONG that I am still trying to figure out exactly how far to go before I turn around.

Low: Missy and I have committed to doing a 9/11 tribute stair climb when we are in Colorado - it's on that Sunday morning, at Red Rocks, and we will climb 110 floors - the same amount as the twin towers. To prepare for this, I decided I should work out on the stair stepper machine at the gym. I had this idea that I would do a 50 flight of stairs workout, and then I could just assume that doubling that will be what I have to do on September 11th. Guess how many I made it in real life, before I started spitting and puking? 14. Then I tried again the next night and I made it 18.

High; Last night it also wasn't raining, so I met up with Missy and Katie and we took a four mile walk to explore Missy's new neighborhood.

High: Pretty Little Liar's was BANANAS this week, and next week will be even more bananas.

High: Speaking of PLL, this week we had a community meeting at work, where I had to stand up and introduce myself as a new employee. So, in front of probably 100 new coworkers, I introduced myself and said that one thing about me is that I'm obsessed with Pretty Little Liars, and please come talk to me if you watch, too.

High: I tried Hog Wild BBQ with my sister Kate earlier this week - the commercials had me very interested. It was pretty good!

High: I am leaving work today and heading to the compound of Mount Pleasant to see the Boone's, and then Nick and I are going to see Blake Shelton tomorrow night in Iowa City.
