Wow. Time away from a computer is a strange thing. So after my computer crashed this summer I could have gone to the library and posted things. Or made more of an effort to post things from my parents' house. (Which is where I actually currently am located.) But truthfully I kind of enjoyed the silence from technology. It gave me time to think and read and plan. I worked a lot on plans for a Halloween party and a Christmas Tea. I got both of those fully planned out and I am happy to tell you that I am now a successful party planner. It was strange to plan a party for someone else...and actually get paid for it. It was fun though. Really fun. I tell you what...planning a Halloween celebration like that one made my plans for the evening seem really boring though! So anyways, now that I have decided to write again I hope to do so more regularly. We'll see how that goes!
Some big news in my life is that I am training for a 5K. That will not come as a surprise to some of you since I posted it on Facebook. But, it's going fairly well. People keep asking me how I am feeling. I am thankful that they want to know but I also want to scream "my body feels like it's screaming and my shins are on fire"!!! I have never been athletic in my life. Ever. I played soccer when I was a younger child but it was for fun and I was not really good at it. I don't run. I don't really exercise. I just don't. So this is hard. It's really hard. My shins really do feel like they're on fire. I have to ice them like every day. But I also feel good about it. I feel like I am making progress. I may finish last in the particular 5K I am training for, but I will finish because I am determined. Have you ever run a 5K? Have you ever felt like you were going to die but knew that something was good for you? I must push through!!!
Ok...so I guess that's all I have for now. I am going to a friend's for dinner with her and her family tonight. A friend who is immensely encouraging. A friend who I am enjoying learning from. I am looking forward to it. Do you have people like that? I hope so!
