So, it's been a while since I updated! I FINALLY have my computer back in working order thanks to my wonderful boyfriend! For my birthday, he wanted to surprise me and fix my computer. Well, he called me while I was at work and asked me if I would like him to refinish my coffee table (something I've been wanting done for a while) as part of my birthday present! I thought it was such a sweet suggestion! So, he came to my work and got my apartment key. Well he was at my apartment for an hour and a half looking for my computer! I got a text from him that said, 'call me asap'. I called him and he said that he had dropped my house key somewhere in my house and he was looking for it. Then he mentioned being in my bedroom... well since my coffee table is not in my bedroom, I was curious as to why he was even in there! Well, finally I pulled it out of him that he was trying to find my computer. I felt so bad that I ruined the surprise! It worked out good though because I was having a friend of mine's husband look at it. So I called him and told him to go ahead and fix it! Now I have my wonderful MacBook back on my lap!
Lately I have not been feeling good... I don't know what the deal is! I feel like my stomach is getting to be like an old lady's. It can't handle certain foods like it used to be able to. I left work early today and came home and slept. I went to sleep at like 3:15 or so, and woke up at like 8! It was such an odd feeling too! I thought it was the next day! I have been feeling so behind on sleep lately though, so it feels great and refreshing sleeping that much!
Well, my sister, Katie, and I have been working out together every week since the beginning of the summer! I never in my life thought that I would be a runner, but I have slowly been turning into one! I am actually involved in an after school program that my school hosts called Girls on the Run. It's a program for 3rd-5th grade girls that focuses on healthy habits, healthy friendships, and just an overall healthy self-image. It's such a great program, and I'm so glad I signed up for it! We are all training together for a 5K in December! 3.7 miles! I feel like I could mostly do a 5K now... I don't know if I could run the entire time, but I could definitely finish it! Katie and I have been running/walking this 4 mile loop once or twice a week lately! I love it! Fall has the most perfect weather for running outside. I don't think I could do this year-round!
Hmm...let's see, what else has been going on in my life in the past couple months of not updating my blog!? Well, I have been dating Jordan now for about four months! It's so awesome dating someone that I've known so long. 11 years or something along those lines! He is someone that I can be completely myself in front of... it's so wonderful! Ha, the other day we went running in his neighborhood... well, when I say running, he was sprinting and I was trailing far behind... well he has been training for this Firefighter Combat Challenge in Florida and part of the challenge is pulling a 185 pound dummy for 100 feet. Well, he picked my up on his back and started running backwards down his street. We were passing a lot of older people, so naturally I was waving at them! Jordan was like, this isn't a parade! haha... anyways, it was funny. So, this challenge that he's a part of is pretty cool! Him and a few other guys from the Leander Fire Department have a Combat Challenge Team... and I must say, they are pretty mighty! He's in Florida right now... I wish I could have gone to see them compete, but maybe next year!
I can't believe that it's almost NOVEMBER!!! Fall is going by SO fast! It's my favorite season, I wish it would stick around a little bit longer!! Saturday Katie and Craig are having a garage sale... I'm going to try to sell some of my stuff in it. I just need to go through my things and see what I'm able to get rid of! Also this weekend is the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk! I am so excited! My goodness, I love my little niece SO much! She is the most beautiful little thing in the world! I couldn't imagine her being any different... she is SO perfect! She has the most beautiful eyes and the most precious laugh! She brightens my day! Katie and Craig really lucked out with her... She is seriously such a gift!
Well, happy fall everyone! I'll try to update more often now that my computer is fixed! :)
