Oh! Hi there

26 inches. Seems about right
Oh, hi there!

26 days. I haven’t blogged for 26 days.

It is said that habits both good and bad take 21 days to take hold.  I would assume this holds true for simple things like sit-ups and harder things like not stabbing coworkers when they do something dumb. (12 days and counting on that last one!!)  So, as is usually the case with conventional wisdom, I’m going to try to break the mold and get back to the old blogeroo.

The REASONS for not snarking about poop and STDs typing my heart and soul out are as boring as my moniker.  Work. (Even TYPING that makes me zzzz) I’m at the end of an 18 month program and am working nights and weekends try to get it over the finish line. Not blogging is interesting in that I really do feel bad about it.  Like I HAVE to do it like a job.  Call it a fun personality flaw.  My pain is your blogging benefit!

In addition to not blogging, I really haven’t been running as much as I would have liked.  While I’ve been running as much as possible, it honestly has been about 1/2 or 2/3 of what I would like and not nearly as consistent as it should be.  BUT, I’m still getting 40-55 miles a week (usually) so beggars can’t be choosers.  Glass half full.

Fortunately, over the past month, the blog posts have stacked up. So, I have lots of fun content that is oozing trying to get out.  (Don’t worry, I’ve had the oozing looked at, it isn’t contagious.)

  • A hilarious Beer Run race report from Missoula (spoiler: freaking awesome)
  • A number of reviews including Bud-Buttons, Chobani yogurt,  (spoiler, good but kind of watery)
  • A post about traveling to Albuquerque, NM for work and NOT meeting the people from Breaking Bad :( (Spoiler, lots less meth than I thought)
  • I ate at a Paleo restaurant (Spoiler: Meat)
  • A post about NYCM prep (Spoiler: well, I told you about the lack of running...)
So anyway, just a friendly "I'M BACK!".  I'm really working to try to focus on what is important and not stress about what isn't.  To that end, typing down the ramblings in my head is a fun part of my day so I'm going to try to carve away the time to get it done!


Since it is Friday and the above was basically me blubbering about work and not blogging, its time for a bit of a funny foto Friday.  Those too have piled up, but I’m trying not to blow my whole load (is that okay to post on a blog?) in one shot.  So, here you go!  Happy Friday!

If only I wouldn't get fired....

Just... Wow.  Also, if I had hair I would TOTALLY do this

I'd laugh at this, but this seems to hold true.....

Finally, even though I've been busy with work, I haven't been too busy to snuggle with the little man (quickly followed by him squirming away from me and playing with trucks or motorcycles).

Well, and obviously NEVER too busy for selfies.  Happy Friday!
