So I was over at She Said I Need A Goal on Thursday and the post inspired me. Go check out the blog and be sure to follow on Twitter as well (apparently you will be shouted outed if you don’t - read today’s post)
The basis of the post was to take the words So I Was and add a word to it with a description. This may or may not have been the original idea but this is what I’m running with.
So I was
Wondering what I would make for dinner to continue this idea of eating a plant based diet. It has worked so far and I feel leaner and stronger and the challenge of cooking meals to keep this going is excellent for creativity.
Contemplating what is going to happen at the recruiter meeting I have today. Will they just pop out a job and say let’s apply to these or gather more and more information to find the ideal scenario for me? What if I don’t like what they generate? What if I love it?
Thinking I need to get over to the blog that SUAR has nominated. No I won’t tell you who it is but be sure to get some great blog posts in between today and Wednesday morning so that I have some fuel for a menu.
Wishing That my wife was able to spend all day with me today. We had a great weekend with friends on each day but the best times were when we were alone together enjoying each other’s company. Even when she was taking a nap and Ginga (our pug) was laying next to her on the couch doing the same thing.
Hoping that this Cybil like weather would finally pick one direction. Of course that direction would be the one in the high 60s and not the mid-30s I experienced on Saturday morning down at White Rock Lake. It was so cold my foot felt like a block of ice while I ran the first few miles.
Recommending you grab some Kleenex and watch the Kona telecast again and again. I won’t ruin it for you but it’s a tear-jerker. NBC did a great job once again mixing in the music with the events on the screen. Of course we want to see more age groupers but in the end they did a great job. Find a friend with it on their DVR and watch it again and again. I’ve already seen it twice. Just grab the Kleenex first.
Talking to my coach and her husband last night and I learned a lot. I learned that my coach was a flight attendant in her prior life and ‘commuted’ from Dallas to Los Angeles to then fly to London. Land in London and run 20 miles…..yes I found the right person for my personality. I also learned that I need to apply for a job at a company and let coach’s husband know because of his contacts.
Listening to the debacle on ESPN that is known as the Heist at the Meadowlands. I am still trying to formulate the end of this game in my head. If you watch the NFL then you know what I’m talking about. If you are a Giants fan (like myself) I am with you in the consolation. If you want to email me with just curse words feel free as I feel the same way.
Contemplating starting a non-profit organization that recognizes children that lost their dads early in their life. I lost my dad when I was just out of college and I miss him dearly. He was not physically at my wedding (either of them…..go ahead and laugh it’s funny!), he did physically help me move to Dallas, he did physically see me compete at the US Open and finish my first Olympic tri in under 3 hours or my fastest marathon in 3:39:23. But he was there each step of the way and I am contemplating helping others get through this type of hard time.
Laughing at everything. There is nothing in this world where we can’t find some humor in. No matter how hard life may seem there is always room to laugh and smile….yes you can include crying but in the end you will get through the hardest of times with humor.
Enjoying the HoneyMilk Creme Brulee’ that I made for Karen and myself on Friday night. There are some adjustments that need to be made but for a first try this dessert came out awesome.
In awe of the sweater that Michael Vick wore at the press conference at the end of the Eagles-Giants game. It was a black/white/grey plaid pullover sweater that just looked good and something I might have to find online and stare at.
Missing my mother, sister, nephew and mom’s fiance. They live in Charlotte and I have not seen them in a long long time. I truly do miss them and really need to make more of a concerted effort to get in touch with them. Emails and Facebook are great but they cannot replace the feeling I get when I hear their voices.
Excited about getting offered a job but in the end the starting salary is palatable but the growth salary just won’t be enough to make ends meet while we still have the house. I will have to pass on the offer but hopefully that means there is another around the corner.
Staring at my pug walking around the house with a bone that is bigger than her. She loves that rawhide and I need to take lessons from her. It’s the small things in life that mean the most. She has toys all over the place but in the end it is a rawhide bone that keeps her busy for hours on end. Good Ginga!!!!!
So what were you _____________ ??????
