What a month!
I finished up my job with the publishing company (and said goodbye-for-now to many dear coworkers), enjoyed a week of fUnemployment, and started my new job (so far, so good!). And while all that change was happening, we managed to have a lot of new adventures. Let's see how it went:
We went camping! And it was freezing - seriously, freezing rain fell from the sky onto my tent in which I was sleeping (shivering) on a deflated air mattress. And it was still fun! We might try to make this a monthy adventure. Adam loves camping more than most other activities, and I enjoy spending time outside especially when it involves toasted marshmallows and sleeping in a tent. I also enjoyed an entire week of fUnemployment and it was wonderful. I deep cleaned the house, I reaorganized, I painted my nails, I drank some wine, and I slept gloriously late. I started my new job energized and excited for what's to come.
Camping? Not much to report here, but we are less than 3 weeks away from New Orleans, so that's really holding me over for the time being.
I finished my intro to yoga class and activated my Groupon for another local studio - looking forward to seeing where this journey takes me. I've also done a pretty good job training this month. Adam and I went for my longest run in the history of my life yesterday - more than 4 miles! And you know what? It was a lot of fun. We had one of the first real Spring days - warm and breezy with lots of sunshine - and we just ran through the neighborhood for 45 minutes. In the end, I was pretty tired, but not beat, so it gives me hope we'll be able to add another mile to the distance next week without sacrificing pace too much. Also, we've finally picked back up on being more health conscious food-wise. I've had more green smoothies than I can count in the last month and we're trying to eat as few processed grains as possible so that we really enjoy the splurges (like those donuts up there, and my friend E's amazing pies).
I have a new goals list! It feels great to have a new set of goals to look forward to and work toward. I also used some of my fUnemployment time to do some serious housework. We're simplifying around here so stay tuned for one heck of a yard sale this summer. Speaking of which, I think this blog is overdue for a few apartment updates...
