Still Alive

Hey Friends! I'm still surviving "the move". I have not worked out since Monday....unless you count carrying large objects up and down 3 flights of stairs as a work out (I do). My husband is gone from 7-7 and I'm usually gone from 5am-6 ish...so we've been having to move at night. Doesn't leave time for much else. The internet won't be officially hooked up until THursday....although right now I'm bumming it off the previous condo owner. I have no clue how long that will last. I plan on going for a run today...however my knees HATE life right now from all the stairs. Wasn't the much needed marathon recovery they hoped for. Hopefully I can get a decent run in today though.

Other News....my husband got transferred to Savannah with his job. Previously he worked 45 minutes away. THat was basically like a $3000 raise for him (bc of gas $)...and cuts down 1.5 hrs of commute every day. YESSSSSS!!! The new location is about a mile away from our house...convenient eh?

I took the dog to get groomed..he now looks like a Prarie Dog (sp?)...they had to shave his ears off to get the knots out. No my dog is not earless.....haha..you know what I mean though. Poor dog..he looks so funny.

One more thing...my husbands brother is doing awesome in baseball and has had like 9 scouts at every game. His agent said hes 99% sure he will get drafted in the upcoming baseball draft. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he hopes to live out his dream of playing professional ball.

Ok...sorry such a lame update. Not much going on in the workout front right now. Will get better...promise!

maybe he'll get drafted to cleveland and I can score some freebies. "this online blogger I've never met would like some tickets". Yea that'll go over well.

Good luck to the bro in law! That would be wonderful for him to have his dreams come true. You poor things will all that moving with such limited time. I hope you got a run in today. That is great news that the hubby will be so close to work. Have a great week!

omgosh that commute will make SUCH a difference. up until dec, i was commuting 1 hour+ each way and now i work 5 miles from home... its just made for a whole different life... so congrats!!!

and i agree - moving up and down stairs is DEFINITELY a work out.

Brianna said...

I am glad that your hubby is working closer to home. What's he going to do with all his spare time now that he doesn't have to spend so much time commuting? Hey I know he should take up running too : )

Hi Christine

Just getting caught up on all the moving stuff. Definitely been there, done that. I also hear you on the whole busy life thing.. there are just not enough hours in the day.

Good luck in the Cleveland half. I did their whole marathon back in '06 and thought it was a cool course with pretty good fan support.

Best of luck.

Yep, it counts as a workout. And Happy Belated B-Day! (whether you like it or not....)
