What do you do with hundreds of extra race t-shirts? Make tote bags from them of course! A local non-profit held a 5k that essentially got rained out and lots of racers didn’t show. Result? Gazillions of extra shirts sitting in boxes in a back office. I was looking for a volunteer project for January and viola, say hello to my new gig as a … Continue reading repurpose!
Things fell into place faster than I imagined and I start a new job on March 24th! It’s with the same organization but in a different location and department. Hooray! I am excited but also second guessing myself in the back of my mind about whether or not this is the right choice, because that’s just how I roll. I always agonize over whether I’m … Continue reading thinky thoughts about the new job
I did the coolest thing Sunday afternoon. And by “cool” I don’t mean that I’m cool for doing it, but rather that it was a cool experience and I got to see life from a different point of view and that gave me pause. I’m still doing the volunteering thing. I’ve delved into the social media of the wildlife rehab/education organization and am learning lots … Continue reading different eyes
I’m exhausted y’all. It was my day off but I did anything but relax. I spent three and a half hours baking in the hot sun (sunscreen happened this time though) unpacking/opening boxes of food and then distributing said food to local folks in need and making sure there was enough for the line of people that snaked around Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. … Continue reading the good kind of tired
No workout tonight. My head is splitting. Pain. I’m guessing a combo of being a girl (yay, lucky me, men are stupid*, don’t look at me in that tone of voice, etc), and the fact that I ate weirdly and non-healthily today. And did I mention the cramps? TMI? Oh, I’m sorry but this is my blog and I’ll talk about my female issues if … Continue reading head meet ache meet perspective
Because I win at life lately, I just spilled a bunch of tea inside the refrigerator and on the floor. Even better, I dropped a glass and it shattered into a million shards of feet shredding danger bits all over the tile floor. I vacuumed but shoes would be a good idea in the kitchen until I can mop and re-vacuum tomorrow. Thought you should … Continue reading cue annie lenoxx broken glass song
Not feeling quite so lame for hitting the snooze button and missing my run this morning because I just did it. Day 1 complete. I’m a hot sweating stinky mess of a girl right now. My training program called for 4 min running/1 min walking for a total of 45 min, plus warm up and cool down. That netted me 3.52 miles. Done and done. … Continue reading training and reading happened, friday plans
Have you ever stared into the eyes of a barred owl for any length of time? Its all blackness and wisdom and creepiness up in those eyes. I did that today, as well as watched someone hand feed grub worms to tiny chirping baby birds, saw a raccoon carcass laying on a table, observed at least fifteen injured box turtles being cared for, smiled at … Continue reading wildlife need social media too
