Still alive

Greeting, bloggers!

Yes, I am still alive. I'm not feeling wordy or creative at this moment.

My heart wanted to write a post last week on what I'm Thankful about.

...but I didn't get to that.

But, I'm thankful for lots of stuff :)

I also wanted to do a post on our trip home to spend time with family.

...but I didn't get to that either.

But it was an amazing, wonderful, fantastic time. I left feeling such gratefulness and happiness for my family. I enjoyed every second of time I got to spend with my adorable nephews. I was so overjoyed to spend time in the kitchen with my Mom as she cooked the most fabulous Thanksgiving dinner.

It was a great weekend. :-)

I will not be blogging much for the next couple weeks or so, most likely? Started my new job this week! It's going....overwhelming & crazy well. :) I feel like my head is going to explode so happy to be learning so much and using my nursing skills! Finally!!!!

This leaving the house at 6am and not returning until 9:30pm is getting to me, however. But, we are moving next weekend. And I will only have a 10 minute drive to work...instead of 50-60 minutes! Which will cut out 2 hours of driving each day!

The other morning on my drive to work, I missed my turn. I didn't realize this until I was 5 miles out of town on a random highway. I hope I wasn't sleeping?! I'm not sure. I probably just zoned out ;)

When I'm not at work -- I'm packing boxes, scrubbing walls, wrapping up frames/vases/plates/ect.'s kind of crazy.

FYI -- I'm also not doing the marathon anymore...b/c I have to work that day and cannot get out of it. Oh well! Life goes on! The marathon would be next weekend -- *sigh* I am totally trained and able to do one. I've ran 2 20-mile runs, and trained for 5 months for it. Now, I can just say "all that training was just for kicks & giggles"

Well, I hope all is well with everyone! Happy Holidays! Love this time of the year :D

Just thought I'd let you know...I'm still alive :)

Booo about the marathon but all the training wasn't for NOTHING! Look at how good of shape you're in now! Now you just need to maintain your fitness and you can do one in January or February :)

Glad to hear the new job is going well!

60 minute commute? YUCK! I'm balking at the idea of my 5-minute commute turning into a 15-minute one. Lol!

Glad you're back! I know you are overwhelmed with all that is going on in your life, but, as usual, you will pull through! At least you can't say you're bored, right? I think a few weeks ago you were. Be sure to send us your new address!

I was actually just wondering how you were doing the other day!! Glad to hear the trip home was great.

Cutting down on the commute is going to be great. I can't believe you have to drive such a distance everyday. I'm really lucky to actually only work a 10 minute walk from my apartment. No complaints.

Sorry to hear that you're not going to be able to the marathon! What a drag. At least you know you could do it and I am sure there will be more in your future.

Good luck with the new job and the move!

You have lots going on right now so I am sure you are feeling pretty overwhelmed! I have been thinking about you and hoping you are adjusting to your new schedule. It will make a huge difference when you cut down your commute.

The marathon thing blows. No other way to say it. I would be crying. I hope that you can find another one in early Jan/Feb...

Thinking of you, sweetie!

So much going on with you that I cannot even imagine the exhaustion level. New job, going home, moving, oh my gosh! How disappointing about the marathon. Are you excited about your new place? You must be exhausted. Take care. The last thing you need is to get sick!
