Another Thursday, another Thinking out loud with Spoons. I say that like I participate in a lot of link ups but considering this is my second link up with Spoons…that says a whole lot I guess.
This post is all over the place. I feel like my brain has been all over the place as well.
It seems like the shortest weeks often go by the slowest. Not that it really matters to me (honestly) because I work on both weekdays and weekends, so the days seem rather similar to me. I worked all of Labor Day weekend but it was nice because it kept me busy and out of the house.
Other then that I have really kept to myself this week. I go to work, I go swimming occasionally and come home and sleep. That is the case of adulthood and working (not a bad case though). I feel like bloggers tend to say “I’m so busy” when they feel overwhelmed to blog. The truth is: I’m not in the house so I consider that busy. Am I stressed about it? No, but I’m not sitting at my computer screen eagerly awaiting to post multiple blogs…I’m just doing other things. So I guess that is busier than blogging. It’s not stressful though.
I’ve been trying to put together my thoughts for a ton of blog posts lately and honestly none of them have flowed how I would like. I have tried to write a post about how I’m recovering, interesting life events, post college life, new job life (not really new considering it’s been 6 months…the list of posts is endless). That sounds super lame talking out loud now but I have about a dozen posts that all seem important (to me at least), I just don’t have any that I like enough to press publish.
For some reason (well an obvious reason), grocery shopping kicked my butt budget wise. I was doing so well with my budgeting (T and I are trying to save up for a fun honeymoon) but of course my hunger got in the way of that. HA, there are worse things to spend money on….I guess.
Like I said above, I’ve been working a lot lately and I love it. I have no complaints with spending my free time working and hanging out with friends. I joined a pool right near work so I can go to the pool before work, shower and head to work (it’s about half an hour from my house). I take rest days when I don’t work…because it’s a 30 minute drive to the pool and not worth it to me. I’m choosing not to be miserable during my injury and honestly it’s paying off really well. #solazysosorry
Speaking of happy, I talked last night to both my brother and my parents. It was one of the overall just good and happy talks. I was having a rough day (my foot seemed to hurt more than usual) and I was tired. Just chatting with them really lifted my spirits. Yesterday at work I went from crappy mood (9 am), to okay to decent, to enjoying life, to chatting with new local runners (6:30) to coming home at 10pm and in a better mood.
Finally now that I’ve “officially” been injured for two weeks now (which means at least 1/3 of the way healed), I’ve got some interesting come back ideas. One includes a spring marathon and another includes a winter half marathon. I should wait to see what my doctor says next week about how I’m healing though obviously. Like I said, I’m strangely at peace with my injury and not willing to risk furthering my injury or pushing anything. I would think I’m recovering pretty well. Honestly the last two weeks have really flown by so much I haven’t had time to think about missing running…and I love that.
That’s all the rambles I have today. I’m trying to collect my thoughts into some more productive and interesting posts soon.
