Well so much for blogging more often! Haha, I wonder how many posts have started off that way...
So let's catch you up on what's been going on in my world. Hm... not a whole lot. I've been doing a bunch of bike riding, which I am really happy about. My biggest fear was actually that I would hate biking and that I would have spent all this money on a bike and gear and never want to use it. But, it hasn't been like that at all. It's a pretty neat way to get around town and get a little bit of fresh air. Last week I went on a bike ride by myself just to get some air! Tomorrow night I am going to attempt my first solo night bike ride. I'm actually a little bit nervous about it, but I think I'll be ok.
What else... in other exercise news, I haven't been doing any! I know, it's terrible. I decided the best way to get me to stop running is to tell everyone on the internet my plans to run. It's very counterintuitive, but the last time I talked about my plan to run a 10k or a half marathon, my running frequency and distance took a sharp downturn.
Work is work (and not to be discussed on the internet) and home life is good. We currently have some visitors (hi!) staying with us, but they are leaving tomorrow morning so the house will be quiet again. My brother, sister-in-law and their two nieces are in town for a few days at the end of their road trip that started in Boston, went up to Canada to Montreal and Toronto and then back into the States to Chicago. That in and of itself is a lot of driving, but they are also doing this in a mini cooper! Call me crazy, but I think that's nuts! But they seem to be having a good time and they still are talking to each other, so I guess it's been a success so far.
Well I'm hoping for this day to fly by so I can go home, hang out with the visitors and maybe go to bed early. This past week has been a doozy in the sleep department and I'm not just tired, but I'm actually exhausted. So a weekend of sleeping in is on my agenda!
