That, there, is my entire excuse for my sporadic posting of late. I would like to tell you that there is something very obviously going on that I'm so busy that I can't blog (like I'm training for a marathon, while started a new post grad degree while working a first time job, but nobody's that crazy. Oh, wait. I mean nobody else is that crazy). I am very busy, but I haven't quite figured out what is making everything so crazy. I mean, there's work, but that's been the case for as long as I've been blogging. There are a couple of evening activities as well, but those are also something that has been around most of the time. I don't know. I just know that I don't worry about it too much. I'll blog when I can, and read when I can and post when I can. Stressing about it is silly since blogging is a stress reliever for me. I refuse to add it to the "to do" list.
This last weekend, I did get to return to the Midwest to visit a couple of friends. I can't believe it was only a week ago! What is it about the best of friends, that time is so skewed? When I'm with them, it's like I saw them yesterday (even though the calendar said it was a year), and somehow time is not important for those all-too-few days that I'm there. I mean, it passes WAY too fast, but I don't know, it's also different. And then I leave, and it already feels like forever, even though this time last week I was in the middle of staying up too late talking to them given the early morning flight I had on Monday. If you think I have an unhealthy attachment to some of my friends, don't worry. They already know that I love them a creepy amount.
Other than that, I gave my chronic pain presentation, and it seemed to go well. I still really want to finish some posts about that. When I wrote this post, it was more to give an example for when I try to explain the more technical aspects of things. I really don't have much of a pain in the neck anymore. In fact, I aggravated it a little last weekend, and instead of becoming a thing for a week or two, it was calmed down in a couple of days. There are things that really can help with chronic pain! I love it!
Beyond that, I think I'm going to try a spin class tomorrow morning. I have never in my life taken a spin class, but we'll see. I want more cardio during the week, but remember the part about being busy? I might be flat out nuts to be trying to add in more exercise right now! I'm not completely insane. I just got a week's work of free passes to the gym to give it a try. If it's too much to try to add in, I'll just do my week and call it good.
Ooh, and I applied for a passport! I don't know why traveling out of the country has never happened (okay, yes I do, and it was mostly money or lack thereof), but it hasn't and I don't have one. I'm going to try to rectify this, and hopefully use it soon.
I'm also stressing because I have to take A WHOLE BUNCH of CEU's in a VERY SHORT period of time or I'll lose my athletic training certification. It's not necessary for my current job, but it sure is nice to have on the resume. And I haven't even figured out when I'll have two spare minutes to work on even a tiny bit of that requirement!
And that is my life currently. What's going on in your neck of the woods?
