Catch Up: Installment the First

The few readers I have left know that my blog has been missing something lately. What would that be? If you guessed consistent and frequent posts you would be correct. Call it writer's block or call it laziness, the result is the same. A boring blog.


I would, however, like to share with you what I've been doing the last few months before getting in the groove of blogging about things happening in the present.


1) I finally moved all my furniture and said goodbye to Colorado. Although I technically moved to Minnesota in January, it was such a sudden move that the best option was to move my essentials in my little Sentra and leave the rest of my crap in my apartment until my lease was up and I could take a few days off work. It wasn't easy to let go of a place I loved so much, but getting the rest of my stuff did help with closure. Kind of like giving all your ex's stuff back after a break up. Here's the apartment in its almost empty stage:


We packed all my stuff into a defunct U-Haul with a broken cigarette lighter and a broken radio that would only play AM stations. Rush Limbaugh and the Disney channel? Let me tell you my ears were in tremendous pain after an hour or two. Not exactly the road trip dreams are made of.

2) I attended a LOT of ski meets and concerts. My siblings and I are all spaced out by 4 years so I've never been able to attend their sporting activities or performances because I've been living in places like Hawaii, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado. My conclusions: Ski meets in Minnesota are colder than I thought was possible, my little sis looks a LOT better in Spandex than most people, and piano concerts are mostly painful until the last few students get to play.





More to come...

I've never worn spandex in my life, I think that's a good trend for me.

i second sara on the spandex comment. everyone who saw me would have to go to some kind of group therapy! :)

and i totally feel your moving pain. granted we didn't move across states, but leaving an apartment where you've been for a while is hard. we lived in our last apartment for 3 years and it just looked so bare when we locked up. sigh.

glad you're back!

It should be against the law to make spandex anything larger than a medium.
