More Pumpkin and Domesticity

Mondays are tough and require an obligatory pumpkin spice latte to get started.


This particular Monday I couldn’t get my butt in gear.  Normal things that take me 3 minutes to do were taking twice that and just throwing off my juju.  I never really felt like I hit my stride today, but that’s life.  Every day can’t be perfect, especially not at work.  I’m lucky to think that most of my days are pretty awesome.  I am coming to realize that is not the norm.

Once I finally plugged through my day I came home to run my final hill repeats.  My splits weren’t bad, though my first rep said I was running a 6:55 pace which I know is bologna, I was hauling butt and it was my first one and I was feeling good, so thanks Garmin for that fun error!  Other wise the reps were right around 6:00 pace or better up the bridge, can’t argue with that.

The rest of the night held me in the kitchen.  For dinner we had Mahi fish tacos.  I love tacos with all their beautiful colors and fresh ingredients.



As if that wasn’t enough, we are having a pot luck for Therapy month tomorrow at work which meant busting out some Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip cookies for the first time this season.  I forgot how awesome they are.  I keep having to herd Casey out of the kitchen so I actually have some left to take to work.


For what is left of the night I am praying for a fantasy football miracle of 9 more points from the 49ers kicker so I can somehow manage a win.  It is very unlikely to happen but I am remaining optimistic!

Pure Bliss

Yesterday was purely awesome.  It was such a relief to be done with a test that has been stressing me out off and on for about two years!!  And amazingly I improved my score pretty significantly from when we took the practice exam in May which was awesome.

The rest of the day was pretty good, other than having a three hour class after (I was barely there mentally for sure).  I was able to make up my 12 mile LSD run from Sunday that disintegrated and it went beautifully (as it should have).  The weather was perfect and I got to run to a friends house and end there so I didn’t have to do an out and back which is nice whenever I can work that out.

Once I got there and showered, it was DRAFT TIME.  I had a draft last night and another one tonight and I am pretty excited about both of my teams (though sad I don’t have 1 single Eagle, womp womp!

To top off the past few days being awesome, I got to go to Lindsey’s FINAL FITTING for her wedding dress.  Unfortunately pictures can’t be shared for obvious reasons but she looked stunning and I can’t wait for her big day (as if I already wasn’t excited)!

I am sure I will come down from cloud nine soon, but for now I am just gonna hang out up here and enjoy the view.

Anyone else playing fantasy this year?
