I’m finally home…and I mean home with no plans for a trip in the near future! YEAHHHHH!!!! I have to say, its really quite nice to know that I can be a home body for the next few months. I’m putting away my suitcase…for real this time! But, I also feel as though it’s time to get my house and, frankly, my life in order. So I’m cleaning out closets…yes, even that big scarey one under the stairs…junk drawers…ugghhh!…and much to my chagrin…the garage!!…can any one tell me why I need a carborator thingy for a boat that we DON’T OWN ANYMORE???? I know…don’t ask! And after being in resorts with their calming, minimalist decor for the last 2 months, I’ve decided that I’m tired of my house cluttered with dust collecting tchotchkes, so I’ve decided to redo!! Exciting yes, but a huge undertaking! HUGE!! Oh and did I mention that we decided that we are going to set up a budget for the household? Yep…and guess who gets to set that up…ME!!…YEAH!!! Not to mention the marathon training plan…the school clothes shopping trip…the school supplies shopping trip…the “Meet the Teacher” days at not one but two schools…oh and my husband will be ping-ponging back and forth across the country for the next few months, so he will be of no assistance. I could go on and on and on!!! But I won’t…cause I think you get my point. I have WAY to much to do and not enough time to do it!
I feel like I’m running as fast as I can…a full out sprint…but that damn finish line keeps moving farther and farther away!!! The first day back always feels a little overwhelming!! I am hoping that as I settle back into my homelife, I will get myself back in a routine! Wish me luck! I am so going to need it!
Living out of a suitcase
HELLO! Long time…I know! But I’ve been REALLY busy traveling around the world! La ti freakin da…I know! And I am not done yet! One more trip to Naples, FL and then I’m home for a while! YEAH! I never thought I’d be excited to stay home… since as it turns out…I’m a jet setter… without the $$. But I’m actually looking forward to the humdrum of waking up in the same bed for weeks on end! By Thanksgiving I may be ready to head out again!
So I’ve been a bad, bad girl! I haven’t been running…at all! I went for a few walks on the beach, but the desire to get the heart pumping never happened! I know…I know…I have a marathon coming up in January! It is nagging at me constantly! But I have this problem when I’m traveling…I tend to think that I’m on vacation…which means sitting your arse in a beach chair, soaking up the sun, while sipping an alcoholic concoction through a brightly colored umbrella straw from a coconut. No where in this fantasy vacation is there time for a sweat inducing run!
But this morning I actually pulled my shoes out of my suitcase, dug out my ipod, threw on some dirty (yeah I haven’t done any laundry either) running clothes and I actually went for a run. And it REALLY SUCKED!!! I was hoping to get out by 7:00AM, but that didn’t happen…damn computer vortex sucked me in! Then, I thought maybe by 7:30AM…ummm…no…so I left here at 8:15AM, which is entirely too late to run in Florida in the middle of August! It was so muggy I felt like I was suffocating! Needless to say, I didn’t get my full 4 miles in, but I ran almost 3 miles before my head started pounding and feeling like it was going to explode! Not bad!
But how am I going to run 26.2 miles in January? OMG…what have I done?
