Do you see how close I am to the 300 mile mark on my YTD?!?!?! AGHHHH if I'd known when I ran today, I totally would've run the extra 3/10ths! I knew I was close, but didn't check before I ran.
Tomorrow, I will for sure cross that 300 mark!!!! That is 30,000 calories burned, woo hoo!!!
Also in life news, I took a realllly long hot shower this afternoon. Why? Because Monday afternoon I got home from my run, started the shower and realized there was no hot water. We have a gas water heater, and the gas in the stove worked, but no hot water.
While Daniel was figuring out who to call and who can fix it, I boiled water to take a bath, bc I was gross from running, it had already been a few days since I showered, and I needed to get ready to go meet a local friend. So.....I was impatient and barely filled up the bathtub. I tried to lay down to wet my hair, and the water wasn't high enough! So I ended up taking an ice cold shower. No fun.
So the water heater is fixed now and we're all much happier! So I took a way long shower today to make up for any hot water lost on Monday :)
Daniel and I are working on ways to streamline our life here so to speak. After last Friday, I keep trying to focus on learning language being my priority. And also reminding myself that being busy is not always a bad thing. Our lives are busy. That's not changing any time soon, so I need to remember that just because our days are full, I can still enjoy the things that are on my plate for that day.
If I feel stress starting to creep in because I feel overwhelmed with our schedules, I just tell myself that it's okay. Business is not always a bad thing.
In family news, Sarah & Mike are moving this week, and so are my parents. It's way weird. Sarah is only moving 10 minutes north, so not a huge life changer (for me). But my parents are moving to a house, state, and church I've never visited, other than quickly driving thru or making a stop at the airport.
It will be weird for a bit, but I'm pretty excited for them too. Change can be a really fun thing.
School is good. One day I feel really confident and feel like I'm somewhat learning, some days I feel like I have never heard or spoken the language before! But I think that's how most languages go, so I know I just need to press on.
Have I mentioned that it's cold here??? Barely in the 50's and 60's, but it is a COLLLDDDDD 60 degrees! We've already broken out the jackets and long sleeves. I'm telling myself it is not okay to turn on the heater yet, because I KNOW I have a long way to go before it really gets cold!
That's my update......
