very exciting - full of painting (a lot of which should have been done 4 years ago when i bought the house. i would start painting a room and then get tired and quit.... so yeah, still not done). getting closer though!
sucks for some reason. i/my body feels tired. my legs don't want to move. the pace is slow and everything feels like crap. sunday's "long run" was a whopping 4.95 miles. i'm just frustrated 'cause i don't know why my body feels like crap - my mileage has been reasonable, i eat decently, i drink water, i get sleep...
my dress came in a couple weeks ago while i was still in kentucky. i tried it on a few days ago and thought "man i didn't know i lost this much weight!" then i read the tag size... yeah they ordered it *three* sizes too big! awesome. the store claimed it was because dresses aren't made for your specific measurements and that it's normal for them to be a little big. sure i can see that, but 3 sizes off? bring on the m&m's -- i have 50-60 lbs to gain!
i had all of last week off and it was awesome. sleep in, go for a (cruddy) run, do a little painting, read, lounge around, pile up stuff for the goodwill. one evening i cooked dinner for josh and bought him some beer and said "see? this is what life could be like if you would let me quit working". 'cause you know, i'd be so willing to do that daily.... he didn't buy it. unfortunately vacation didn't last long and i'm back at work this week, in a real office, in real clothes. i definitely liked it better when getting dressed for work meant picking out a t-shirt i hadn't worn already that week. now i have to worry about whether or not i have to wear a real bra (yes i am that lazy - sports bra please), wrinkles (which are abundant in clothes that have been stuffed in a closet for over a year), and vpl's (the female version of course).
almost non-existant since coming home from ky. strength training? pushups? yoga? nope. something about my house just doesn't motivate me to do supplemental workouts. i suppose i can blame it on my wedding weight-gain 'needs'.
got a bill from the radiology something-or-other for my mri: under $300. i was stoked it was so much less than i was estimating. then i got another bill from the hospital, just under $900. so much for that. i would, however, like to know why the radiology place is billing me when i went to the hospital for the mri? (yes, the actual vertigo has been fine recently).
being a grown-up
had a couple people come out to quote some tree work. the first guy was pretty good-lookin', but unfortunately the second guy was $400 less. those savings might help make my next credit card bill less painful with the mri charges. sorry, attractive tree guy.
i am loved. i was tagged 5 times with this award that's been circling the 'sphere recently. thanks olivia, jill, mandy, zoe and ana maria! (i hope i got everyone). consider the above points my 7 random facts to fulfill this tagging (further portraying my versatility, right?).
