Friday Night Light

21 Mar

So, this has been a nutty couple of weeks – lots going on. Some not so great, but mostly okay.. 😉 Some things I’ll write about and some things I’ll just stuff deep down until I explode! Haha..#kiddingnotkidding 

So, to wrap things up and get back on track with some regular posting…here’s a few items for your Friday night reading (Light on account of ‘light on pictures’!)

1. In order to get my blood sugar back under better control I’ve been put on more insulin. Different insulin. Now I have a pen and before every meal I get to inject. The good part is that the needle is TINY tiny. So far, so good though I still need to get used to remembering to do this BEFORE I eat, not in the middle of a meal!!

2. TWO great race weekends with some wonderful people. You can read about those here !

3. Found out on Tuesday that my current job contract is not being extended past the end of March. Which…at least it was 2 weeks notice right? So, resume getting updated, recruiters being called and plans for my down time being made (no. Really. This time I *will* clean the office, finish the basement, de-clutter the house, clear out the garage, clean out the flower beds…really, I will!) And of course I’ll get to make at least one extra trip to see Dad and the familia in Houston so there’s that!

4. On Wednesday, after a long day of anticipation, I was notified that I was chosen to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon in October! I LOVE this event! Love it! And this year, the Marathon falls on Mom’s birthday so…it might get a little emotional out there. On top of that, I’ll be running again for Team McGraw (keep your eyes here for the chance to donate to a wonderful cause!!)

So, kind of a little up and down couple of weeks — mostly up though to be honest! Spring is approaching – timidly, but she’s on her way!

It’s definitely a good time to take a look around and appreciate all that’s good in my life! There is a lot of it! And to top things off — It’s Friday!!

    Sorry about the job contract, hope you get everything you want accomplished and then get a great new job! And congrats on the MCM, definitely on the bucket list for me!

      Thanks!! I’ve had this list since about 2009 when I first had an extended time off 😉 But this time I mean it!!!
      MCM is absolutely one of my favorites — if someone was only going to run one full, I’d tell them to do this one!
