I can’t believe it has been almost 3 weeks since my last post! Life has been crazy lately. Between all our homework for our kitchen remodel, my sister’s bridal shower, and an obscene amount of homework, I just haven’t had time to get on here. So, some updates:
- I (finally) found out that I was accepted into my top choice for graduate school!! I have spent the last academic year completing prerequisites, and I will start my new program in the fall. I’m excited, and a little nervous. It will be hectic, but SO worth it when I’m done.
- My running has been going fairly well. My speed is improving a little bit. I’m still not as quick as I would like (need) to be for my goal race in a month (!), but I’m getting there. I have to keep reminding myself that it is ok to have slow progress – I’m not even fully recovered from my injury yet, and it would be dumb to push too hard and set myself back.
- My sister’s shower was beautiful. We had a good turnout, and, although life got pretty crazy during the last couple weeks leading up to it (as is usually the case with these things), it was perfect. My sister is one of those people with a positively effervescent personality, and it is so nice to watch her have fun.
- The kitchen project is coming along. We are still getting quotes and trying to figure out the best way to maximize our budget (any tips are welcome!). Unfortunately, our kitchen is small, and we’ve found that some vendors tend to take us less seriously once they realize that we won’t have to spend $40k on cabinets. Progress is slow, but it is moving in the right direction.
Moving forward, I hope to post more consistently, though there still might be sporadic periods over the next 6 weeks or so. I hope everyone’s training is going well!
