Long Time, No Post

I can't believe it's been over a week since I've posted.  I've had a thousand post ideas come through my head, but zero time to write them down.  I really need to work on getting ahead on my posting so I have a queue for weeks like that.  

It's pretty late, and I'm really posting this mostly because I promised I'd post something today, so here's a run-down of the last week:
  • Had a crazy week at work for a thousand reasons.
  • Hosted (pretty successfully, I think) a big event that had about 400 attendees.
  • Finished drying out the basement and had the carpet re-installed.  Basically fired our restoration company because they were pretty unresponsive. (Still need to call them to negotiate our final bill though.)  Carpets are getting cleaned tomorrow and then we can finally start putting the basement back together.  Unfortunately, we'll have some repainting to do before we can call it complete.
  • Learned a LOT about anatomy in yoga teacher training.  My brain was hurting by the end, we learned so much.  I kept thinking about my friends who have been injured in the past and how the ways they finally resolved their issues seem to make total sense.
  • Learned that I tend to pronate my left foot and supinate my right foot.  Yeah, I know.  Bizarre.  (Other weird thing I haven't figured out yet: if I pronate my left foot, pain in the inside of my left knee would make sense; but I tend to have pain towards the outside of my knee.   I just don't get it.)  I also tend to hunch forward and need to lift "up and over" from my back ribs (by the bra line) and pull my shoulders back to get into proper alignment.  Truly fascinating stuff.   
  • Kicked ass in fantasy football.  Currently leading the league--which is comprised of Duff Man and his buddies.  We'll see how long it lasts, but I'm happy to be at the top for the moment!
  • Went a little nuts at the Farmer's Market on Sunday.  I'm SO happy it's time for hoodie weather and pumpkins, and I can't wait to have time to make pumpkin pie!  
This week's bounty: tamales (!), home made salsa, tortilla chips, basil, cilantro, parsley, leeks, pumpkin, lettuce, cauliflower, macintosh apples, red bell pepper, sweet banana peppers, and onions.  I can't wait to play with it all!
(Aside: I tried to tag this post "Farmer's Market" and I'm not allowed to use an apostrophe in a tag.  Who makes up these stupid rules?!)

I have to admit that I've been a miserable failure in accomplishing my goals for the month.  I only got about 5 hours of sleep each night last week (although I caught up over the weekend.)  And I still pack a nice breakfast and lunch and never seem to make myself eat it.  I need to take smaller bites off of this goal--because it's a hard one.  With yoga teacher training for so long, the 2-workouts-per-week thing has still been pretty easy.

Ok, with that, I think I'm done for the night.  Time for bed pretty soon.  I promise to not be such a stranger this week!

  1. I agree with you on having to get ahead on blog post. I have ideas but then when I sit down to write I forget the point I wanted to get across.
