On Packing and Running

Well time for another blog… it’s Friday, I have exactly one more week of work left and I am having a hard time wanting to do any actual work. So instead I am blogging! Wooo.

Things have been strange around here lately. Eric has already started his job in another town so he is living there during the week and then coming back to Tulsa on the weekends. In a week (as mentioned above) I will quit my job and begin the moving process. Not really looking forward to that. I mean, last time we moved (which was only about 5 months ago) three different items broke in the transport between one place and another. Can breaking/losing items really be avoided when you move? Not if you can’t afford that expensive bubble pack stuff. I just wrapped everything in sheets and towels. And I'm sure that's what I'll end up doing again.

While it’s been tough living separately from my husband, there are a few good things that have come from it. I have had lots of time to pursue activities that I don’t really get around to doing when we’re together. One of those things is exercising. Eric and I have been very inactive this winter (I mean who is going to exercise when it’s 0 degrees outside???) and now that the sun is shining and I have a lot of free time on my hands I have really gotten into the habit of running outside after work. Well… I do more of a walk/jog kind of a thing. But it’s something. And this is good for me. I’ve always gotten my exercise through playing sports so the idea of just running has always been hard for me. Hopefully this is something I can keep up when my life returns to normal. Or stops being weird and actually starts being normal. Or however it’s going to work out.

So there you have it. Blog of the day.

  1. I think that applies to running and blogging at times...you know it's good, but you just have to keep doing it until it becomes normal. I'm glad you are doing both! But especially blogging, because, let's be honest, that benefits me more...

  2. Make sure you text/call us if you need any help with moving! We packed evvvverything in newspaper and nothing broke... so maybe you could try that. Can't wait to play again!

  3. Good luck friends! I always wrap my breakables in blankets... as well as towels and sheets. I haven't had anything break with blankets! Hope adjust well and have fun! I really really hope to see you sometime soon. Maybe we can roadtrip to mid oklahoma this summer! (we being me, Teresa, Danae, and Hanna!)

    Love you!!

  4. my mother has always said that three moves is basically the equivalent of a housefire with the amount of stuff that gets broken. probably not very encouraging...but true, nonetheless. take it from a seasoned mover. miss you!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
