Who We Are Now

Not often do I post pictures of myself. Partly because I don't like pictures of me, nor most people for that matter. Rarely can you capture even a glimpse of the beauty another human being can bring into your life. Dave caught Rob and I pretty well one night after Jaywalkers, though. A group of amazing, inspiring, truly lovely men and I visited Teriyaki House by the Hynes stop where we laughed and smiled and floated on a cloud of compassion for one another. There was also sweetness, and hand-holding, and walk-offs to Chelly "Took the Night".

Sometimes Tuesdays are my favorite nights.

All Lost in the Supermarket

Today I went to the grocery store for more than a quick dinner on my way back from the gym for the first time in all of 2012. And actually cooked myself breakfast. And have zero plans for the rest of the day. Will I go to boxing? Maybe. Will I take a bath? Perhaps.

For now I'm going to enjoy a much-needed break to stretch out on the couch and not rush to do anything.

One milllliiiion dollars

Got to experience my first grant submission with the group I work with now. Gotta say, it was pretty fantastic. Super intense. And not for too much money. But a million bucks is a million bucks, right?

This has set me up for straight failure on the running front this week, though. And it doesn't look like it's going to get too much better. But that's a story for another day.

I've had about enough of today, it's time to turn in.

Well, I didn't make it to all 7 miles this week. But chalk it up a bit of a crazy week, being out of town, and that one week/month I can not run my goal mileage. Look at that, already making excuses.

And as usual they're all bullshit.

So I'm sitting on my couch, all set to finish my weekly book, and am shocked at how quiet it is right now. The Patriots(?) are playing in the supergame(?) and I'm pretty sure that everyone in the building where I live has left to go to a party. Which works great for me. It's so nice to sit in silence now. To enjoy not opening my mouth and blabbing all over the place but to instead just listen, even if it's to nothing. Sure I still have a lot of nervous energy at some points, but it's nothing like it can be most of the time.

And for the remainder of the weekend, what little there is left of it, I intend to do just that, enjoy the silence and calm that I have in my own home, regardless of what is going on outside.

I also have some earplugs handy just in case the home team wins.
