Well, this weekend I’m supposed to do a half marathon in New Orleans. I’m going to try my
darndest ( darnest?) best, but really, I just want to finish. I’ve mostly made my peace with the fact that I’m probably never going to be fast, but I keep signing up for races as a means to keep moving. On Monday, when it was 60-ish degrees in Dallas and beautifully sunny, Jason and I went for a walk on Katy Trail. We didn’t go very quickly, and we didn’t even go that far, but it was wonderful to be outside and mobile.
February has been a weird month. A week after hearing some really sad news, we received really exciting news, and now I’m not sure how to characterize this month. It’s been a rollercoaster (cliché, yes, but the past two weeks have been the best characterization of the phrase that I’ve ever seen), and we’ll see how it goes from here. I’m not convinced that the ride has ended yet, but I can only sit back and see how it goes.
In other (less vague) news, I’m so excited for all the trips we’re taking this year. We’re headed to New Orleans this weekend, Florida in April, maybe Dublin in May, and San Diego in June. We also might go to Australia towards the end of the year, but that’ll greatly depend on our vacation availability and travel funds. Personally, I’m a big fan of taking lots of little trips instead of one big one, but we’ll see what we can fit in — I think it would be awesome to spend some time on the beaches, and maybe go hiking…
We started watching House of Cards on Netflix. Umm, yes please. More, ASAP. Hop to, Netflix, we all know you already have the next season made.
I also read two books! And the month isn’t even over yet! They were both about how to conduct oneself in business, and were good reads. I don’t know if I would recommend either, but that’s mostly because I usually feel as though everyone else my age already has their stuff figured out and know how to conduct themselves (generally). Maybe someday I’ll feel like I have everything figured out… that’s gotta happen at some point, right?
