Busy Busy Busy

I've spent a lot of time over the last couple weeks doing many things that doesn't have anything to do with training.  Which I guess is good - this is sort of a break between seasons, and a chance to get myself situated before I start training more and before I can run again ( I'm going to try tomorrow evening or Saturday morning after yoga.  T minus 36 hours...but who's counting?).  

We've spent some time cleaning up the house, including getting new bedding, as we decided the bedroom is the first room we want to re-do.  When we were in San Francisco a couple years ago we bought a lot of local photography pieces, and decided to do our bedroom in a sort of  San Francisco theme, using these pictures and lots of soft grays and blues and whites.  Essentially we spent a weekend learning that there is a large amount of hideous bedding out there.  I mean really, people, who buys some of this stuff?  We finally gave in and went to West Elm.  

I also got a bunch of basil seedlings from someone at work, so I planted those last night.  If they take, I won't have to replant to replace the one's I killed through neglect over the winter.
I also have also been lucky to land a couple freelance jobs for some great companies, so I'm excited to work on these, but getting moving on them has taken a lot of prep work.  But I was super organized last, corralling my myriad email addresses (including the one linked to my freelance website that I never check and apparently lost some potential jobs since I never check it...ooops) into one hub so I don't miss anything I stay more on top of things.  Do you see a theme here?

We also got to go see Citizen Cope on Sunday night, which was a lot of fun.  He is doing a special acoustic tour, so it was a lot different than what you normally hear from him.  It was at the Florida Theatre, which is now a concert (and still sometimes movie theatre) venue.  It's beautiful inside; it's one of the oldest "moving picture" and "talkie" theatres in the country, and I believe one of the first to get air conditioning.  

So this coming week should be re-dedication to training.  I've felt so off not being able to run it's colored everything else. I'm ready to get back in the game!


  1. Buying bedding is a pain, the stuff that is "affordable" is freaking ugly, and the stuff you really like is super expensive, like 2 pairs of running shoes and a pair of compression socks expensive, thats all I see when mine is looking at the expensive stuff.

  2. I usually look at Target for bedding first - it's hit or miss but they have some really pretty stuff sometimes.

    I can't wait for you to be able to run again! It's almost time!!
