I swear, it feels like I am writing these “welcome to a new month”-posts faster and faster. August is over and done with, a new month awaits. The year is literally flying by and I am holding on for dear life. The days are perceivably getting shorter again and I am slowly starting to think about fall. Very slowly though. The weather has been too nice around here for the last week (mid-80’s and cool at night).
Here’s what’s going on in September.
+ I started a new training plan a couple of weeks ago. So much for taking it easier in August, but I just do better with a plan and I can’t take too much of a break, because a) I cannot allow myself to fall off the bandwagon and b) my feet were itching to get out there again (which I am just taking as good sign). I know I do need to start incorporating some more cross-training (or any – ahem) into my training schedule though. I always have good intentions; until I don’t.
+ It’s my Dad’s birthday this month and while I won’t be able to hug him on his actual birthday (the 16th), I will get to hug him + get to celebrate with him in 4 short weeks, because…
+ … my Mom + Dad will be our first visitors at the end of the month and I am planning to bring our house and backyard into “ready to host”-condition by then. I honestly cannot wait!
+ I am beyond stoked that I’ll be seeing my dear friend of 24 years from Sydney, Australia for a long weekend this month. She’ll be traveling to the States with her family and I get to hang out with them for a few days. The last time we were able to meet up (for the first time!) was in 2005. So, it’s been a while and to say that I am excited is the understatement of the century.
+ We finally bought a new couch last weekend and I can’t wait for it to get delivered, so I can show it to you.
+ I’m looking forward to the long weekend. Monday is Labor Day (FYI for my non-US-based readers) and I get a 4-day-weekend out of this. I approve.
What are you doing this weekend and what’s going on with you in September?
