The last 30 days or so have been strange- busy, stressful, exciting, and exhausting. A lot has been happening. Here's the highlights:
I'm moving! Drew and I have lived at our current apartment complex for a bit over 5 years now, and our current lease is up at the end of the year. But we've been thinking about moving for a while now, mainly because we'd like to pay less and I'd like to be closer to my work (I drive 30 minutes each way to my job right now). So we started looking, and we spent many weekends checking places out and talking through all our options. An apartment came open at our #1 choice, and we decided that it was worth the cost of breaking our lease to move out there as soon as possible. It's smaller, which is fine by us because we have a lot of wasted space right now, cheaper, in a great area, and will cut my commute time in half! I'm super excited. We move in at the end of the month! The search and all the planning we've had to spend to get to this point have been super stressful for me, so I'm happy to have all that over with.
I've lost 5 pounds so far, and I weigh myself tomorrow morning to see if I've lost more. I'm on the right track, but I feel like I've been slipping a little during the last week because I've been so stressed. Time to get back on track!
The physical therapy is going well, I think. It's a lot of work, but I've been doing run/walk intervals and enjoying being able to do what I can.
I decided that I'm not going to teach my beading classes Sept-Dec. I just really need a break. This summer is super busy, so I really don't have time to plan new classes and make samples. I also haven't been doing much creating lately, and I think I'm just burnt out. Taking a teaching break will allow me to do what I love to do- namely, experiment with crazy/silly/possibly genius ideas and see what happens. I think it'll be really good for me.
And I guess that's all for now! Just a little over a month before I go to Niagara Falls with my mommy!!!
