So last week was my birthday… and two days before that I ran (okay, I did a lot of walking too) a half marathon. For our (husband and I are only 2 days apart) birthdays, we decided to spend our week on vacation. We thought we would spend 5 beautiful days in Northern California enjoying sweater weather and Pinor Noirs. Instead, we packed our shorts and sunscreen and headed out for 90* weather. What we hadn’t planned on was power outages and subsequently, the Kincade Fire. We were fine and so far the rental we were in seems fine. I am not going to get into the fire but I will say that I hope everyone stays safe!
And true to subject line here, I have typed out my thoughts and deleted them a dozen times. Another year has come and gone, and I feel like I am stuck in the same place I was last year. I made myself the usual big promises… advance my career, improve my time management skills, lose 10 pounds. And here I sit with the same 10 pounds, a slower half marathon time, and less gumption to get up and go. So this year the only promise I am making to myself is that I will be happier this time next year! I don’t know what that means yet but I really hope I can figure that out soon.
