Day 1 of 365: Outside My Window

Happy New Year! It’s the end of the first day of 2018. Its frigid cold, but its only half dark with the full Moon and all its bright light! We had a light dusting of snow that caused sheer madness for a bit yesterday. The roads got extremely bad rather quickly, but thankfully it’s all gone now. 

Today it has been bitter cold out, our high not rising above 30 degrees with the low in the teens. I don’t mind the cold, if there’s snow, but all this frigid cold weather and no snow makes for long days. Our time outside has been minimal, the dog doesn’t even waste any time doing his business.  

I can honestly say….I’d love to be on a beach, somewhere where its sunny and 75. But that aint happening!

Anyways, our Christmas was amazing! The kids had such a wonderful day. I got a huge surprise, a new puppy has entered our lives! He is 7 months old, and weighs about 45 lbs. I have spent the better part of the past week learning who he is and how he operates. It has been utter chaos at times, but he is settling in nicely. I think he is going to be the perfect addition to our family. 

In other news, I am loving my new medicine. I feel so much better. Still battling my way out of a deep, dark hole but I’m making progress. I am looking forward to this next week, I have family moving back into town that I haven’t seen in years. It’s one of those family that aint blood type situations. 

Well, I am off til tomorrow! 

Good night! 

ETA: This is day one of a 365 day writing challenge. The master list can be found here.


End of Winter, Spring Brings New Beginnings

So today is the last day of Winter, so out with the old and in with the new. I have decided that I will be running my first 5k this fall. So here it is almost springtime and I can’t wait to get outisde. I’ve been going to the gym for about a month now, well except for while we were on vacation. I am ready to start running, or so I think anyways….

So I can’t wait for the weather to make up its flipping mind. 

I can’t wait to start pushing myself more and more until I can actually run 1 mile without feeling like I am going to faint. We have a beautiful Greenway running beside the river through town, and I can’t wait to start running there. It is paved and well lit, though I doubt seriously that I will be doing any running outisde that late at night. 

I am ready to do this 5k, I know I won’t be the fastest. I just want to finish! It isn’t a medal winning 5k, and there will be plenty of people walking. So if I can’t run the whole way, no biggie. This was one of my bucket list items! I am making several life change so I can get to that moment. 

My kids think that since we were swimming last week, that they should be able to swim here…So they are ready for the weather to start changing too.  I’m ready for our weekly adventure to resume. It’s like our family time during the summer. The fiance works crazy hours from May to October, so we take 1 of his days off an go on a day long adventure. 

I’m ready for bonfires & barbeques….Patiently waiting for July 4th! That’s my favorite holiday, I love fireworks! Easter Sunday isn’t far away, that’s a favorite for the kids. The kids are another year older. My how the time flys!  I ready for camping trips! And fishing… 

So what do you have planned for the summer? 

What are your ready for?
