Hey peeps :). I thought up that super original title last night after track practice (I always get the best ideas post-workout).
I’m glad everyone is enjoying the technical writing posts. Truthfully, I didn’t know how people would react to them or if anyone who reads even cares about what someone does at their job, but it looks like people like learning about it, at least. Part 2 was tough to write because all of the emotions and experiences (including those I didn’t write about in the post) were floating around in my head the whole time I was writing. I’ll have the final installment later this week, but if you haven’t seen them, you can read Part 1 and Part 2.
With Clay working on a project all day Saturday, I had a pretty restful weekend. We went to the Arts International festival at FMU, enjoyed some delicious food from the Philippines (our first time ever having Filipino food) and hung out with our friends Terence and Bridget who got married a few months ago and are now expecting a little one.
Sunday morning, it was a lot cooler out, so I ran 3.1 miles around the neighborhood. The cool weather helped because it was a pretty speedy run with no stops or walk breaks. Clay and I went to Chutnee for lunch and it was *delicious*- Indian food is our favorite, and Chutnee is open for Sunday lunch. Plus, we even had a buy one get one half off coupon from the Arts International festival :).
I worked most of the day Monday, ate lunch with some coworkers, then left to go to the doctor. I love my doctor; he’s truly the best doctor I’ve ever had without judging, has good advice, and I’d hate to move and have to search for another doctor because I like him so much. But *all* the magazines in the waiting room are pregnancy related, and he’s not even that kind of doctor. Those magazines are scary too- if someone actually followed their advice, they (and their kid) would probably be living in a bubble! I especially feel sorry for his male patients.
Fortunately, all my bloodwork is good (yay for no anemia), and I got out in around an hour, just in time to rest a bit before… track practice! I dressed in real girl clothes for track because I wanted people to know I’m a coach and not one of the kids in the club. It happens ;).
Practice went great- we have a TON of kids (over 100), but we also have more coaches to handle them. I coach the 1500 and 3000, and we had some new faces who were amazing distance runners. We have a week off for Easter/Spring Break, and I hope they get some running in because I can already tell we’re looking at another group of champions.
And, the best news… I got moved to a new desk at work! I get a larger cubicle beside the window, and it’s a lot warmer than my last cubicle! Taking down all my race numbers was a pain, but I was more than happy to take my North Face jacket, blanket, and gloves home!
The view is great too- sure, it’s a parking lot, but at least I get to see the sun. I love what I do and would love it even if I had to work from a closet (let’s hope my company doesn’t read this and get any ideas), but I was definitely in a great mood from the sunlight and nice weather today. I’ve already decorated, and bigger cubicle = more wall space = more race numbers to come.
Hope everyone’s having a great week.
Q1.) If you’re out of high school or college, do you ever return to your school for events or games? I go back to my college every few months for something, since it’s in my town, but I think I’ve only visited my high school maybe once since graduating- and that was for someone else’s graduation.
Q2.) Does blogging ever bring up emotional moments for you? I mean, we all share pretty deep stuff with the world from time to time, and it’s definitely not easy.
Q3.) What do you do to pass the time in waiting rooms? Waiting rooms always make me wish I had a Smartphone to play with, haha. I usually bring my own book…
