I really believe everything happens for a reason.  Lately I honestly have had to remind myself of that.

Next week I will likely be MIA from blog-land because I will be out of town on business all week.  I seriously doubt I will have the time or the energy to blog.  But I am certain the week will result in some interesting blog posts.  I LOVE those events.  It’s the weeks leading up to them that are insane.

I am pretty sure I will sleep all of next weekend because I will TOTALLY need it.  It’ll be worth it.

 

Fun Facts Friday

  • It’s a snow day,  I didn’t have to work today (ok more of an ice day)
  • I got WAY more done today than in a usual day.  Go me!  Cleaning, gym, taxes, groceries, cooking, and Netflix movie!
  • People were making fun of the ice day, but it’s serious around here.  People don’t know how to drive or act in it and it causes more problems.  That’s why everyone needs to stay at home.
  • Today is my grandmother’s birthday, she would have been 94.
  • I am all  kinds of anxious to get moved into a new place
  • AIP is going well.  I don’t miss everything quite as much anymore.
  • My foot still aches from the futon incident.  It didn’t hurt during the race though.
  • My fingers are crossed that the chafing I developed during the race doesn’t scar!  It was BAD!  And yes, there was Body Glide before the race.
  • My dad is leading a 4 day retreat right now for church.  I am so proud of him and all of the dedication and hard work he’s put in.
  • I’m missing sweatshirts and yoga pants
  • Speaking of yoga, I really need to get back into it.  I keep letting life get in the way
  • I finally wrapped Evan’s Birthday gift, which was ordered in November.  Fingers crossed no one else buys him the same thing!

Fun facts Friday

Well I don’t know if I would consider them all that fun this week!

  • My foot felt better after icing for a few days.  Ran on it Tuesday and it was fine.  After Thursday wasn’t so good.  It’s still sore across the top :-(
  • I may have a place of my own soon!
  • I am nervous about Sunday’s race.  I am not ready.  I keep telling myself to just have fun.
  • I took a personal day Wednesday.  Not something I do enough.  It was pretty awesome.
  • Just as soon as I posted my excitement for the 3 day weekend on Facebook, things started to change.  And not for the better. Saturday plans were completely scrapped.  I had no words, just tears.
  • There are 2 more days to this long weekend, but Saturday I had my heart set on for a while
  • AIP totally had reduced my inflammation.  HAD because I cheated once and it made me bloated and miserable.  Back to strict AIP with structured reintroduction.
  • I’m still a sucker for greeting cards
  • And goofing around at Buccee’s

Fun Facts Friday

  • I still want to learn how to swim properly.
  • My hair is finally starting to get longer!
  • I have 2 James Avery charm bracelets.  One is overflowing, the other is slowly being built.  Both are very special to me.  One day I am going to blog about the meaning of each.
  • I am dying to go crazy in the kitchen again, but I only halfway cook since I’m in a temporary situation.  It’s only me to cook for 90% of the time, which is still and adjustment for me.
  • AIP is hard.  I want tortilla chips.  And salsa.  And just a little cheese.  And chocolate. It’s only been 8 days, I need to give it a full shot to see if it helps.  I’ve been feeling better, but not 100%.
  • I have a race VERY soon.  I am SO not ready.  I may be running with mom if she’s not still injured.
  • Drive by Truckers AND Lucero are both coming to Austin soon, not soon enough!  I have tickets for both already
  • I miss my friends.  I need to make the rounds and see everyone I can soon
  • There is no better feeling than feeling loved and appreciated

Fun Facts Friday

  • I am working retail for the first time in 9 years.  I like my holiday job.  People are a lot nicer than I remembered them being.  Who am I kidding?  It’s the quality of people I am sure.  Different city.  Different culture.  Different clientele.
  • I’ve surprisingly only bought myself a few small things with my nice discount.  I should probably look ahead to get something good for myself before the discount goes away in a few weeks.
  • My Christmas shopping this year was stress free and 0 physical effort.
  • I worked more days at my holiday job this week than I did at my real job.
  • I ran a 5 mile Christmas light run on Tuesday.  That was probably the 5th time i’ve run since Shiner.  I’m just not feeling it after that day.  It was a bad race mentally.
  • I have a new cortisol test pending.  Will see if anything has changed since last year.  Fingers crossed it has
  • I am only waking up once or not at all during the night now.  YES!
  • Transferred to another Dr. in the practice.  One that is supposed to be the best for hashi’s.  We will see where that goes
  • More labs this past week.  Fingers cross these help with making progress

happy friday!

Fun Facts Friday: Black Friday Edition

Feels like a Sunday to me.  I am SO glad it’s only Friday.  2 more days until Monday.  What WILL I do with myself?

Ok, I know what I would like to do, but unfortunately time, distance, and other barriers prohibit that from happening.

Black Friday Edition of Fun Facts Friday:

  • My mom, sister, and I always go shopping on Thanksgiving night.  Even in high school when Garden Ridge Pottery was the only thing open.
  • Last night my mom and I went to Kohl’s and I bought my godson and myself a few things.
  • I bought my godson’s birthday gift yesterday on Amazon.  I couldn’t wait to order it.  His birthday is the same week as mine.  My little groundhog ;-)
  • I have not bought Evan a Christmas gift.  Backwards, I know.
  • I have a holiday job for the first time ever (well other than when I worked retail in college).  I did not have to work black Friday.
  • I did a turkey trot with mom and a bunch of my running buddies yesterday.  Apparently I stepped in dog poop before we started and had a huge pile of it on my shoe for all 4 miles.
  • I woke up by alarm today because I wanted to go to the gym early.  And I stayed up too late last night. Waking was not easy.
  • I had to cut my workout short for good reason.  I came in the gym and left the gym in 2 different workout outfits.  I took a shower between outfits.
  • I had breakfast out this morning.  With good company.  Great company.  The best company.
  • I did a little shopping today with my mom after I got done with breakfast.  I have no shame shopping in gym shorts.
  • I watched the first whole college football game this season.  LSU vs Arkansas.  I was not happy with the ending there.
  • Ever since I got home this afternoon i’ve done nothing but veg.  Read articles, watch football, lay around.  I forgot what that’s like.  It was kind of nice.  Of course, certain things would have improved the happiness factor.
  • I vocalized one of my blessings again this morning and I may have cried.  I only cried because it’s that important.
