Yeah, I’m slacking. But how couldn’t I be? Just look at our living room!


I swear, couple that with what the kitchen and bedroom look like and it’s grounds for inducing a Val panic attack 😮

Thank goodness I have a full day off to make a dent in all this madness.

That’s not all I have been up to though. I’ve been doing this . . .

No, not prancing around like a dumb ass . . . Running 🙂

I even bought one of these!


Edit: ANOTHER one of these.

I had 2 ancient Garmin’s waaaay back in the day before running was cool 🙄 I have been entertaining the idea of a new one for motivation as I am truly at a place where I am ENJOYING running and there was a sale on this one.

I feel like I’m on a spending binge lately caused by the looming wrath of debt coming up in my very near future. I might as well buy it while I have it . . . I think?

Other than major boring errands, Marie and I have another 5 mile ‘res’ trek planned for this afternoon. This will be the last run before the 5k.

I also have a special dinner planned that I am excited about 😉

What have you been up to?


I’m BEAT . . .


I’m feeling the stress come out. I haven’t felt it like this in so long. I feel tense, scared, anxious.

Work is getting BUSY

Money is getting TIGHT

The future is getting CLOSER

Can I handle all of this? What am I getting myself into? Should I just stay safe here, yet feel no personal satisfaction in my life’s work?

I am fearing things I have no control over, unless I decide to give up before I start.

I am Fearing Fear

*deep breath*

I will try to focus on the present right now. Me, good TV and . . . .
