Adios...Sayanora...Auf Wiedersehan...Goodbye

Well folks...this is it for a while.  For how long a while I have no idea, but honestly it might be permanent.

Life (YAY!) has taken over and I no longer a) feel compelled to b) have the time for and c) even want to .... blog anymore.

Those in the know, besties and through personally being connected via Facebook know already how wonderful life is for me now here in Nebraska!!!

I am finally all settled into the new house (the past 2 weeks of meeting movers both in Houston and then here in Nebraska have been exhausting) and it was wonderful to just walk out the back door this morning to run BEFORE WORK again and take off running in the 50 deg weather btw...It was 39deg Saturday morning!! 

Yesterday was the first real day of absolutely nothing .... cooking, laying around, and was indeed glorious!!!

The house is fantastic and obviously I still need a few things having all that extra space now, but all in good time.

Additionally I just never get around to reading blogs anymore either.  I read a few of my besties here and there when I find some spare quiet time maybe during lunch (like right now), but it isn't often and quite frankly I would rather catch up on my celebrity gossip and blogs with whole/real food recipes than reading day to day humdrum, I ran a 100 miles today because I dont have a job and/or supported by my husband and maybe I will have a baby and complain about that making me fat kind of blogs...

So anyway...its been real and its been fun, but it ain't been real fun :O) ...

But now its time to say Goodnight Gracie.  Until we meet again.

Goodnight Gracie.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I hated being in Houston those couple of days while the movers were doing what they do. The weather was exhausting along with the bazillion things I had to do…It was a quick down and back trip with me being so utterly exhausted by the time I left and then got back to Denver, only to have to drive a couple of hours just to get home…and then everything showing up here yesterday just meant another long day and a few more before I am all the way settled in, but I AM MOVED INTO MY NEW HOUSE!!! Only 20% of my stuff is out of boxes, but it will be complete when its complete. :O) The kitchen boxes (why are there SO MANY!??!?) will be tackled next and probably not until tomorrow as I am beyond physically exhausted.

For a week now I have barely eaten and barely slept….


Thankfully Sunday when I met the folks after church to do the walk through on the house, it was spotless and my OCD self didn’t need to do any additional cleaning before the truck arrived with my stuff. I was a total slug on Sunday and it was glorious. And thankfully Monday was a holiday so there was that…I did get out for a short run/walk (still so sore from Saturdays run (not with KW afterall) and then CrossFit) that I didn’t know if I was going to be able to run…but it worked out OK; I just took it reallllly easy.

I have to say that the initial moving and new job did impact my training/running somewhat, last week and probably this week are really going to take the biggest hits in that department.

There are…and I never knew when this day might come that I thought this…but there are just things more important and more fun than spending my free time training (and running).

There. I said it.

Life is so wonderful. I am so blessed and completely happy. Its amazing.

I am still in the process of working through some of the mentality I had for so many years…about running…about what part it played in my life…and the folks that impacted my life during it; both positively...and negatively.

I obviously still love running, but I obviously love others things just as much, if not more.

I love my new house. I love love love my new job. I love my new friends. I love my new life.

And yes, I still love running.

But I also enjoy hiking. And exploring. And road trips :O) And of course I still love CrossFit.

So what does all of this mean?

Well right now it just means that I will run when I can, if I can, and for however many miles I want. Or don’t want.

I will still try to stick to my KW schedule, but I won’t be a slave to it.

I know that January will be here before I know it, and I’ll be ready.

Or ready enough anyway :O)
