I realize, I haven’t written a ‘who I am (at the moment)’ post in a long, long time. I originally stole this idea from Kerri (who is also still doing these posts occasionally!) a long time ago, because I thought it was such a good way to check in with yourself every once in a while. If you’re not letting the ball drop on it, that is. My last ‘Who I am’ post is from almost two years ago. But who cares. I am picking up where I left off.
I am …
… a little bit of a Christmas grinch this year, and you guys, I am NOT usually a Christmas grinch. I love the holidays season. I honestly don’t know what happened this year. Here we are, a week away from Christmas, and my holiday spirit is barely above ZERO on the holiday meter. Maybe it’s the fact that we had so much going on the last few weeks, or that we’re again not traveling for the holidays, or that I won’t really take much time off, or SOMETHING, but this is very unusual for me, to say the least. I am still holding out hope though this will change in the next few days or so.
… missing our house a bit (not going to lie), but also trying to make this first Christmas at our new place something special.
… cold a lot. J thinks I have a circulation problem. I think it’s just damn freakin’ cold. Where is floor heating when you need it?
… happy that I got almost all of my Christmas organizing out of the way this weekend. I know I can get shit done when I buckle down, but I definitely have done better in previous years and there is still a bit more stuff I need to do, but I guess we’ll all live.
… still running regularly, (or should I say, again running regularly) but I am not sticking to a training plan right now and so I am winging it a bit when it comes to distance and effort. I am just making sure that I keep showing up, however unorganized it might be right now. I’ll soon have to pick a new goal to train for, for sure. At least I have some new running trails to explore.
… obsessed with some of the new recipes I’ve been trying. I am planning to share couple of them in the coming weeks, because if I print them out and they make it into my permanent recipe folder, that’s always a good sign. On that note, what are you making for Christmas dinner?
… annoyed and digusted by politics (what else is new?) and I am once again not-so-patiently waiting for what will happen when the federal funding deadline runs out at the end of the week. Government shutdown over Christmas, anyone?
Who are you at the moment?
