…yeah, so… anyway… what were we talking about?
OK, I’m sorry. I’m super-flakey. I think there’s some sort of corollary between being in love and being on top of stuff – the more you’re one, the less you’re the other. (I have no science to back this up, but it sounds compelling, right? Also if it has the air of science behind it then it’s totally not my fault. It’s just science. Science, people. You can’t fight science.)
I’m gonna try to be better, at least for the next several weeks until T.E. comes back for the holidays. Am I making you any promises? No. I. Am. Not. But there is the promise of trying. Who doesn’t like trying? Nobody. Nobody doesn’t like trying, so that’s my plan here: loads and loads of quality, grade A trying. WITH a side order of really good intentions. So good one might consider paving a road to a very fancy place with these intentions.
And now for the obligatory “what the heck happened in the last few months?” filler: T.E. was here for a couple of months and it was awesome. It continues to be awesome. Stupid-awesome, with a capital STOOOOOO. He’s coming back in mid-December for holiday-themed awesome, and for once I’m actually coming up with really good gift ideas! Because really who doesn’t love Batman-themed footy pajamas and spam-flavored bubble gum? Boo-yah…
I’m still working my job and loving it. It’s all the goods kinds of challenges yet without feeling completely impossible and doomed to failure. I can see all sorts of paths to a very solid career future and I even got a swanky raise! And I continue, even in rain and cold and “oh hell, is that frost on the handlebars?” weather I still keep biking my way to the office.
The biking is helping me to get back down to my pre-T.E.-visit size, but I’m proud to report that I only gained 5 lbs while he was here. My goal is to get rid of those pounds plus five more of their friends by the time T.E. returns, and so FAR it’s going well. But I’m well aware of that huge, looming calorie monster in the future: Thanksgiving. (shudder)
All in all things are rolling right along and I’ll be sure to take you guys along for the ride. At least a lot of the time. Well, I mean when I get some time, and think of it. If I don’t forget. Or I’m not sleepy – I do get sleepy. You know how hard it is to read when you’re sleepy? Seriously hard! But on the more wakey nights and stuff…
