Everybody seems to be going through changes! Whether they're good or bad, I hope it's worth it. Even I am going through changes...not major changes, but tiny ones here and there. For instance, I'm changing my whole personal life schedule over the next 2 months so I can study for 2 sections of the CPA exam during every extra free moment of my time. I am hitting the gym every day again to regain my mileage and endurance for my upcoming races. And I'm sure there's other little things too.

But really, I'm not big on change. I am a creature of habit. I like the things I like and I don't see why I need to change things up. Like my daily routine, I'm pretty predictable. Getting ready in the morning, getting to work, working out, going home after work, going to's all part of my daily routine. When I go out to eat, I usually order the same thing everytime at that particular restaurant, like wings at Coaches, shrimp in lobster sauce at PF Changs, crab linguine at Red Lobster, and chicken alfredo at Olive Garden. If I ever try something new, I end up wishing I had just ordered my usual. Sounds boring huh?

Luckily I have great conversation skills! I may be eating the same dish or going through the same motions, but I can guarantee you won't know what I'm gonna say! How exciting! Like right now...I bet you didn't know I was gonna tell you that my flip-flops make my foot ride on the inside. Or that I just rubbed body butter on my elbows. Or I called Canada this morning and I'm just waiting for Canada to call me back. Fun, huh!! Good times! Well, I hope this encourages you all to make some changes in your life, or maybe make no changes...whatever!

Don't drink and drive, cause where will you put your beer while you're texting?

Well, Look Who It Is!

Surprise! Just when you thought you'd gotten rid of me...

Here I am! I know I've been the biggest slacker ever lately, but my life has been going so many directions since the end of August. I sort of left you on a not so positive note cause I was in a bad mood, but I'm better today. I've actually been tiring myself out the last couple of weeks. Last week I was in Florida and when I got back, my timing was a bit off. Then this last week it's been TV's Fall Season Premier Week and we're watching so many shows that we're up all night watching tv. I've been studying for the CPA Exam non-stop it feels like, so we can't even start watching tv until 8:30 or 9pm. I work all day long...well...I'm AT work all day! So, the last few days have been long ones. I would say luckily it's the weekend, but I have a softball tourney this weekend, so that'll cut out some study time as well as some "catch up on tv" time. I need more hours in my days.

I'm in training again. Here's the key: When you train for a half-marathon, after you've run the race, DON'T stop training! And especially don't take 2 months off after a half-marathon and expect to run any more than 2 miles when you start up again...not smart. So, here's the plan, I've got a marathon relay in 3 and a half weeks, then a half 7 weeks after that, and another half 6 weeks after that. You think I can do it? Let's hope so! I'm gonna stay determined!

I'm burning MY candle at both ends!
