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


*shudder*

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

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 šŸ™‚

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 šŸ™„ 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 šŸ˜‰

What have you been up to?

Man, oh man. This has been a CRAZY 2 days for me. I basically worked for 2 days straight with 2 crappy sleeps in between, no time or money for food shopping, and have had 2 stressful issues to deal with.

Luckily I’m down to only one stress now and won’t have to deal with it again hopefully ever, but I’m incredibly thankful to have a supportive boyfriend and friend that will go out to lunch with me and listen to me complain and tell me I’ll be fine šŸ™‚


It is a gorgeous day out! I love fall, I really do. I luckily have the rest of the afternoon off before I go back for another full day tomorrow, but I have some things to conquer such as . . .

A mountain of ironing . . .



An mountain of dishes . . .


And I must CREATE a mountain of food in our sad wiped out refrigerator . . .


Eww, I didn’t realize it was so dirty too.

Anyway, hopefully ill conquer my mission, but maybe ill do something else instead, like go out to dinner šŸ™‚

Im feeling much better and I have a lot of exciting things I’m doing and thoughts I want to share this fall and that makes me so happy.

Do you ever rebel against your own to-do list like me?



  • None
  • Ayla: My easiest dinner recipe? PB + banana sandwich. Takes 2 minutes which makes me a very happy girl.
  • kristisn: Yum! That looks like a great dinner.
  • Kate D: After two scarring experiences stuck in big city rush hour traffic (facing the wrong direction) while on vacation with my parents I totally understand
