Where have I been?  IknowIknow.  I can recap the missing days with just a few words:


Final Exam







Well, how about a few more words…


I conquered my Spanish final and left the class feeling pretty wonderful.  The sky was blue, the birds were chirping, I was done with linguistics and I was off to meet my man for lunch.  We ate at a local sandwich cafe to celebrate the end of my first year as a returner learner.  If you’re new, I’ll catchya up quick:  I already have a college degree — but when I graduated, I left a Spanish major unfinished.  Since returning to work at my alma mater, I’ve decided it’s important to me to finish that degree…and maybe go for a master’s ;).  Maybe.  Yes, definitely.

Anywho!  We split a piece of cheesecake for celebration’s sake.  Because there needs to be a reason to eat cheesecake *pbbbpt*.


After a full day at work, I stumbled home with the mother of all migraines.  Oh me oh my.  Light sensitivity, nausea, dizziness, the whole nine.  I rarely get migraines anymore (I just to get them about once a month), but this one hit me smack dab between the eyes.  I took some meds and fell into bed.  When I awoke, I had a dog on either side of me.  I think they were so concerned by my state when I got home, they took it upon themselves to make sure I didn’t tumble out of bed. 😉  Sweeties.


After a few years of super hard work and determination, my brother-in-law graduated!  I’m so proud of him.  Steve changed majors and it created some serious obstacles, but he stuck to his dreams and kept on truckin’.  Weaker souls would have folded under the weight of number two pencils, bluebooks and all-nighters.  Not Steve.  He was still smiling even after all that hard work. 🙂


A special celebration took place Sunday for a very special man.  We celebrated Sam’s grandfather’s 80th birthday (a few days early).  We did this by inviting him over to our house for lunch, but not telling him it was a birthday party.  In hindsight — yelling “surprise” with party whistles and hats at an octogenarian may not have been the smartest choice, but he’s got a good ticker, so we’re in the clear ;).  It was a wonderful time.  12 people + 4 dogs + 1 awesome birthday boy = good family fun.

So that just about brings you up to speed.  I know I don’t usually disappear like that and I’m sorry I couldn’t find the time to pop in, but as you can see, it was an incredibly busy few days.  Besides (and I know the fellow bloggers out there will probably nod to this), sometimes you just need to step away from the computer.

Am I right? 🙂

But I’m back.

Eats for today:

Coffee and Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch cereal…channeling my inner 6-year-old.

Watermelon a co-worker brought in.

Half a PB and Blackberry Currant Jam on whole wheat.

Fruit salad.

Spinach salad with feta cheese, Craisins, walnuts and EVOO/balsamic vinegar plus a little cantaloupe on the side.

Dinner of party leftovers: delicious homemade ribs, corn on the cob, roasted broc/cauli and a rollllllll.  Ah, leftovers.

Today marked a very important day: THE START OF MARATHON TRAINING. Fo’ real.  Fo’ really real.  I am pumped.  I am also pumped that the training started with a rest day…haha.  In future posts expect to see something like this up at the top:

Training calls for: Rest

Miles Run So Far: 0

Days to Go: 126

Okay, so obviously, today’s entry isn’t that impressive, but just you wait.  These sneaks were made for running and that’s just what they’ll do…better move outta the way before I zoom right past you!

See you tomorrow…yes, really.  I’m done with this hiatus thing.
