Alright, I admit that I am blogging today only because I feel like I need to stay in the habit. So here is my list of Who Needs It:
1. Sleep. Yes, I am dragging myself to my cubicle and listening to loud music to stay awake, but I've decided that if Abigail insists on a crazy sleep schedule, I am going to have a good attitude and enjoy my baby! She slept like an angel for months, so she has her rights as a baby to have a weird schedule now. So we play until ten at night, then get up at five to eat and get ready for the day. (Well, I go to bed at ten and Nathan takes over until Abigail passes out.) She is happy with the schedule for now, so I am going to be happy about it to. And bring more coffee.
2. Half-marathon training. I signed up for a half-marathon to give myself incentive to run. Instead, it's turning into incentive not to run. I feel like I have to run so long if I get on the treadmill since I'm working towards 13 miles. Really, if I could just get on for 20 minutes, I think I would. This ever increasing mileage is not getting me excited though. I still have plenty of time to change my mind, but I think getting to just work out how I want, instead of train like I need to, would make me happier. I know the point of life is not my happiness, but the point of running is.
3. Shoes. In my cubicle in the corner at the end of the hall with its high walls and door (I'm secluded, can you tell?), I take off my shoes. And it is glorious! I think I'll bring slippers tomorrow.
4. Bread. I've been so good at my low carb, gluten-free eating! I lost ten pounds and am no longer ravenously hungry between meals. I feel great. Except last week when I went to too many parties at work and had too much out to eat and carbs went way up. So did my weight and my crankiness. So I'm saying bu-bye to most of the carbs again. Bring on the hot pants!
5. Apartments. I did not want a house. I was fine to stay in our apartment forever. Except now we have enough money for a tidy down payment on a house. And now I want to move tomorrow. It's a little scary how quickly my mind changed on that once the far-off possibility became possible. I'm going to look at it as encouraging that I can be content with little when that's all I can have.
