I am past the point of longing for Spring, begging for it to grace me with its sunny skies and warm-but-not-sweaty temperatures... no, I am demanding that it come now. And because I demand with so much purpose and authority, weather.com tells me it will be in the 60's almost every day next week. Finally, Mother Nature is getting the hint from all of the bright, Spring colors and patterns in the blog world. Hellllooooooo, cobalt, I love you.
Until next week, though, I will still be sporting some scarves and sweaters to keep the chill away. Yesterday, I wore some of my favorite items of clothing... a lace blouse, a cobalt cardigan and a colorful winter scarf. I was planning on wearing my wool dress pants with this outfit buuuut... you can see that disaster here.
My students thought this outfit was a little too much color... apparently they did not see me on Monday then, right? Wtf, kids.
When you look at this next photo you maybe thinking, "Hmmm... that sure does look like someone's molar." And if that's what you are thinking, you are right. Someone's molar. IN OUR DRIVEWAY. Someone... anyone... please explain.
Other random things to chew on that you will no longer be able to focus on now that you've seen the molar lurking in my driveway-now-yard:
1. Thinking I might just go ahead and combine this with my personal blog. Not sure if this is a good idea. I kind of like them separate. But kind of not. Weigh in on this?
2. My 10K 'training' is coming along pretty well. Yesterday I logged 4 miles at inclines of 1-3%. Kept up a decent 10 minute mile but man I struggle so much on those inclines at 2+%, y'all! Heart a'poundin! Love those interval workouts Elena posted a week or two ago. Intervals are tough stuff but I LOVE THEM! My muscles start bulging and all the dudes look scurred. I'm a beast. Clearly.
3. The blog envy talk... where do you stand on it? Jenloveskev weighed in on it today if you're not sure what I'm talking about. Honestly, can't say that I've felt it. Maybe I just don't have the stats or the numbers that other bloggers do to spur the jealousy? I'm just in it for the fun right now. Kinda scares me to think, though, that if the stats rose the stress would rise with it... what do you think?
