A list, in no particular order, of things that have me excited today:
1. MOVING! Have I mentioned we are only 14 days and 13 sleeps away from being on our way back home?
I’m excited about joining the Ann Arbor Track Club! I haven’t pulled the trigger yet, but as soon as we are settled into our new apartment, I’m joining. They host Tuesday night speed workouts every week and a trail run once a month. I think it will be a great way to meet some like-minded friends, not to mention become a better runner.
3. OUR APARTMENT! Seriously just so happy to have found one that seems right for us and is within our budget. We’re still sorting out some details and will sign the lease after we arrive in Michigan. *fingers crossed*
4. These beautiful flowers J’s school gave him:
Today was the closing ceremony for J’s school, so he gave his farewell speech. He did a great job, too. After his speech one of the students presented him with a huge bouquet of sunflowers and carnations. I broke the bouquet into two smaller ones to put into water. I love having fresh flowers in the house—it makes me so happy—but I never want to spend the extra money on them. A nice surprise on a gloomy Friday.
5. I’m running 10 miles in the morning. Whee! Super exited to wake up and RUN. Hopefully, if the weather cooperates, we’ll be heading to the beach afterwards.
So much fun stuff going on in my life right now and I feel so blessed. It’s really cathartic to be cleaning out our apartment, getting rid of junk, and finding new homes for things, too. I’ll be back sometime on Sunday with a marathon training update for weeks 7/8—I have my work farewell party, so no promises on how quickly that will go up.
