Update: My non-boyfriend Facebook boyfriend let the request hang for about 24 hours before figuring it out and changing his status back. I feel bad for him, but seriously, dude, tread lightly when it comes to Facebook relationships.
I’ve got a lot of reading to do this weekend if I want to get off to a good start with my resolution of one fiction and one non-fiction book per month (it WAS the first one on the list after all). I’m 3/4 of the way through Racing Weight and about 30 pages into Jodi Picoult’s Handle With Care. How about we just call it 12 of each for the year?
People with children have no boundaries. My boss did not think twice about giving me the detailed play-by-play of how his two boys handled having the flu all week. And someday I will likely do the same to my poor, unsuspecting coworkers.
I’m wanderlusting big time. Belize is on the top of my list. Well, was, and then this week, I saw this. Maybe Europe. And although I’m bummed that it probably won’t be 2011, that doesn’t mean it can’t be January 2012!
This weekend is the first bridesmaids dress shopping adventure with
Bridezilla my sister. Direct quote from an email I JUST got from her: “My dress is HERE! There will be many more times I will need to go in for fittings [ed. note: lies…she measured a perfect size 2 and I imagine it will fit like a dream] so this is to try it on just because I CAN!” I’m sorry, I get that she’s excited (and that I will likely be just as obnoxious when it’s MY turn), but is it October yet? In other wedding news, my other October bride is a dream, but I think two of the bridesmaids are going to throw down before the big day.
My first half-marathon is tomorrow! My long run a few weeks ago took me over the distance of the race, so I should be fine, but it also left me with a knee injury and I haven’t been training as much as I’d have liked in the past two weeks. The doubting voices in my head have a few other things to say as well, but in 21 hours I’m going to shut them up and hit the pavement.
That will probably be the last mention of wellness and running here because I’m posting on that over at my new wellness blog! The one I kinda skimmed over here. It is my second attempt at a public blog (my last one bombed because it didn’t have a focus). I’m struggling with keeping one anon and one public blog and building readership of both. If anyone has tips, I’d love to hear them! And if anyone would like to continue to read about my fitness adventures and kitchen mishaps, email me at emjaye [at] ymail [dot] com and I will be glad to send you the link!
I’m staying at my parents’ house over the weekend because they are closer to the race and to the dress shop and civilization in general. And because they’re out of town. And I’m totally having a party. Well, not really. I’m on the fence about asking my ArtWalk guy over to make dinner (date #2 was not as great as that first one) or inviting some friends over for a game night. Yeah, I’m 26, but it still feels like I’m breaking the rules!
Oh yeah, and I need advice about ArtWalk guy. When do you call an attempted relationship off? There are no red flags, just a lackluster date, but the first was good! Do we try again in a different environment?
