I'm just "mellow." The thing is, I don't find my everyday life interesting...so, if I was going to blog about my everyday life i'd find myself analyzing why people in southern California think it's acceptable to tailgate in the slow lane when the other two fast lanes are wide open, or why they pass on the right going 80....at least pass on the left. Or, I would blog about my dogs..and how they get *way* too much attention since I am currently on the dole (ie, receiving unemployment). Or, I would blog about how awesome it is to go shopping on a Tuesday at 1:00 and get a killer spot at Fashion Valley which one can never do, since even when it isn't the holiday's, parking there makes my blood boil. I could also blog about how i've fallen off the frozen yogurt wagon. I know, I gasp as well....I just haven't been craving it....now I wonder how many pounds I would have lost during Ironman training if I HADN'T eaten that many hurricanes.....but, I seriously would have gone mental if I hadn't eaten the hurricanes....they were a big training reward =0
We had an awesome time in Montana...i'll post pictures soon, did a little skiing (TGPink if you're reading this, I TOTALLY agree, skiing on the East is "wet, cold, ice" skiing on the West is "powdery, still cold, but not as wet =0)......some sledding, eating and relaxing! This weekend we're actually headed to Phoenix....Dave is running the Rock N Roll marathon on Sunday, along with my brother in law....my sister will be there with my two nieces......should be a really fun weekend!
For those wondering, what DO I do all day? Well, it's come to this:
8:00 a.m.-I usually wake up.
I spend the next hour eating breakfast and surfing the internet for jobs (ok, well, most of that time is on Facebook). BUT, I DO look for jobs, I have two very possible ones "pending".
10:00-I usually run or swim.....doing well in those categories =0......biking, well, I got a flat tire about four weeks ago, I used "Pit Stop" and realized I actually needed a whole new tire, not just a tube...so I bought the tire.....and still haven't changed it. Nice. I'm super motivated right?
It's just "easy" to go to the pool, and "easy" to run..biking involves a bit more driving some place and a lot more equipment =0....but, it's funny because I love biking the most probably.
I've also been lifting a little bit of weights, I know, hell must have frozen over, I stepped into a gym.
Post workout---I usually have some sort of errand to run, you know really important things like buying dog food or renewing my passport (cause you never know when you might *have* to go overseas?? right, someone could like invite me to their lair in France and i'd just *have* to go)......I actually have some friends I meet for lunch from time to time...but, really, it's just a lot of free time. Complaining, not really..feeling like i'm getting "stupider" everyday...kind of. Don't get me wrong I *love* the sleeping in.....but, I feel like I should be doing SOMETHING!
Bottom line, I have a ton of free time....why am I not volunteering?? Hmm, good question, i'll think about it. I really should volunteer, seriously, I have nothing else to do while the unemployment check comes in and I wait for these two jobs to let me know either way....
The thing is, I volunteered all through graduate school, so I have done my fair share of working for free, so i'm a bit picky where I want to spend my time these days. I'm going to look into the Challenged Athletes Foundation.....it's an awesome organization and i've done some volunteering for them in the past, so maybe tomorrow i'll give them a call.
Seriously, I need to get off my butt....i'm married, no kids, with a master's degree, finding something for me to do should NOT be this difficult =0. I need to kick my own butt since Amanda is on coaching hiatus until further notice =0......hehe!
Well, that is IT from here.....more at some point when I feel like I have something else to say..this is a super boring post =0
