Welcome to Friday Free-For-All, where I talk about everything and anything on my mind. Sometimes it even makes sense!
Thank you for all the support and advice after last Friday’s post. While it’s not ideal to be moving in with one’s in-laws at the age of 28, we’re lucky we have family to take us in when we’re going through a transition, and I know without a doubt that it’s the best decision for us right now. I’ll just have to keep that in mind as I’m commuting 25 miles through the snow this winter…
I have amazing Accountabilibuddies. After much crap-giving about how I’ve a) never seen Frozen, and b) never done a runDisney race, they took matters into their own hands and sent me an Amazon gift card so I could buy Frozen on DVD. Obviously I’m still on my own with race registration. #poorgirlproblems And now I need to think of a fun, awesome way to pay it forward :-D Also, I wish I’d paid extra for next-day shipping. I wanna watch it now!!!
I got new #FlatsFriday/amazingly comfy work shoes! Yes, they are Dr. Scholl’s pseudo-old lady shoes, but I totally don’t care. They’re wide enough for my fat feet, they don’t cut into the tops of my feet (stupid high arches!), and they feel like walking on pillows. I never want to take them off.
My bike is out of commission :( The chain fell off 3 times during my bike ride home last week, and even when it stayed on, it kept slipping. Not safe, and not effective transportation. The timing of my bike’s demise is actually not too bad, considering that starting in September, we’ll be commuting from much further away, which will render the bike obsolete. In the meantime, however, I’m back to walking to and from work every day, which kind of sucks. I may see about getting another used bike, but I won’t be paying to fix this one. Considering it was an inherited bike that wasn’t really a good fit to begin with, and I already shelled out $80 to get it on the road a couple of months ago, it’s dead to me.
This weekend starts back to back wedding weekends. This weekend in CT, next weekend in Maine. Oy! Wish us luck!
What are your plans for the weekend?
