Getting well, and doing all the things (because it's Tuesday!)

No Burrito Zone!!! 3 of us (including yours truly) almost died (slight exaggeration) from something in the breakfast burritos we had Thursday at work. I won't go into detail, but imagine, if you will, the most painful and embarrassing things you can go through with other people watching...that happened. Emergency room visit in 2015, check!

Now that I'm back at it, let's see what has happened, and talk about things.

 Running is what you make it. If you're doing it, you're not doing it wrong. Unless you are doing it wrong. In that case, stop.

Here is a little bug I dug out of my mouth on my most recent run. MMMMMM.

When you can't eat real food, you can always have a shake, and watch someone else eat real food. That's just as fun, right? I couldn't eat yet, so guess where we went. Thanks.

The chocolate shake was dreamy though.

I'm now allowed to add soft foods and some harder to digest foods back in my diet. Last night's menu: spinach salad and loa…

Khaki Thursday

It's Khaki Thursday everyone! We made it another week. Time to look back and reminisce, relax, and re-enjoy!
Run love!

Out where the crickets chirp.

Rinsed that rig off. Not a total Betty, but a vast improvement.

You never know where it might lead

Does anyone know what dating is anymore?

Dating. Whoa! Stand back, keep your arms and legs inside at all times, don't hold your breath, and don't make eye contact!

This is the stuff science fiction movies are made of. Facebook, Tinder, Match, Zoosk, ...friends of friends. My head is spinning!

After my long, long separation, I decided to get back out and try to date. Here are my few, but eye opening experiences with dating.

Online dating: I have friends that did the online dating scene with some success, and much failure. I thought about it, but lying online about who you really are is just so easy. I need my sources! I need to know why you're single, from an outsiders perspective. I need to know how old that picture really is! I found that most (note this is not all-encompassing) men online were only interested in casual connections that don't require much clothing. No thanks.

Dating apps (Tinder): I had no interest in Tinder, that is too modern for me.

Fix-up: Friends of friends...oh, there's a good idea. T…

Running again, and doing all the things.

The clouds have parted, the sun is shining, and this curly girl is alive again.

A very dark winter took me away from many of the things I loved, including blogging. As I mentioned in a past post, I went through a divorce in 2014. It wasn't a terrible divorce, or a lengthy, angry divorce. It was however a lengthy separation; 2+ years. When the final court date arrived, and the papers were signed, I felt a huge weight lifted off of me. I've taken some time since then to adjust to the thought of no longer bearing the label of 'wife' or 'partner' or 'companion'. I started that adjustment when the separation started in 2012, but it became real when the divorce was filed. Once it was final, the idea fit better, like pair of running shoes after a few miles. :)  You just have to wear it a bit in order for it to become part of you. Although my identity is not defined by my relationship labels, it is something we wear, and therefore should take time to be comfort…
