Randoms…

Hello friends!  How are you all doing?  Did you have a great weekend?  Mine was pretty good.   There was a “mountain” bike race in my town that I volunteered at.  I use the term “mountain” loosely because I’m no where near mountains so it’s more like riding your bike on trails in the woods. Guess I gotta take what I can, right?

Anyways, the reason I’m discussing this is because the race was held around the lake with an RV park that I was thinking of parking at.  You can read all about that parking spot here.

Game time!

Hello, hello!  Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Hope it was fantastic.  It was the start of college football. Did you watch any games?  Go to any games?

Me, no.  I didn’t go to any games, however, the first football game at the University where I work happened to be last Thursday night.  The game also happened to be broadcast on TV so there were warnings the week leading up to game day that certain parking lots would be closed and the other lots would need to be vacated by 2:00 or 2:30.  So that pretty much means that parking on game day – during the work week – would be even more of a headache than it already is.  so what’s a girl to do when she has to work but not quite sure where to park….ride her bike!

Turtle!!!

Hello and happy Monday!  Did you all have a great weekend?  I had a whole list of things to do (seriously a whole 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper full of things to do!) but unfortunately my ear is still throbbing and I just laid low.  It’s so frustrating…but I’m headed back to the doc tomorrow so hopefully I’ll get some answers and get this thing cleared up.

At one point I was outside checking on some things on the house and found a new friend!  Check out this little guy.

location update

Hello, hello!  Happy hump day!  Hope you all doing well.  This is a short post it’s been a busy week but I wanted to update that the new location is great!  I teach a spinning class on campus at 6:00 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays so I would usually get up at 4:50 AM to pack breakfast & lunch and clothes (I pack the night before but some things still need to wait till the morning to pack) and leave at 5:20 AM to drive into campus to teach at 6:00.  Well, here is the best news!  Yesterday, I woke at 5:00 AM and left at 5:30.  I arrived at the gym in 7 minutes….what?  7 minute commute!  This means I had time to go home after teaching spin class to shower and get ready for the day.  If this becomes my new schedule I think I could sleep in till 5:15 since I wouldn’t need the time to get my stuff together for the day.  I also get a nice little break to watch the news and eat breakfast at home before starting my day.  Quality of life just improved.  =)

Hope you all have a great wednesday!

My first move!

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  I hope it was good and relaxing as mine was quite busy as you can imagine.  The move happened seamlessly and I’m settled into my new spot.  =)

It started Friday afternoon/evening.  Luckily I got out of a meeting early and got home around 3:30 to start the packing process.  I wanted to get the exterior done that night so I could then just do the small interior things Saturday morning.

It’s a go!

Hello!  Exciting news over here…I’m moving on Saturday!!!  The new spot is ready, the landlords are excited I’m moving in and even hooked me up with a mover, and my old landlord understands why I’m moving and will return my deposit!  So now the packing…or moving objects has begun.  I’m not even sure what I need to do so I think moving a few miles down the road as a first trip will be a good test. =)

Mooooving!

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Oye, am I feeling behind.  I had to make an unexpected quick trip back to my dads (a plane ride away) which is why I didn’t post the past few days.  Because of this trip, I am now behind… but eventually I will get caught up.

I do have some exciting news though….wait for it…

I got the word that my new parking spot is available!!!!  I will most likely be moving this weekend!!!  I’m going over tonight to check it out and look over the lease.  My new landlords put me in contact with someone they know who can tow my house too!!!  I think this new space was meant to be. =)

I think this was just in time because when I returned home Monday night my current super close neighbors in the RV.  (if you forget the issue with this RV parked 5′ from my front door, you can read it here).  Well they have a few dogs…I THINK they have 3 total but it might be 4…anyways, 1 dog they keep outside in a makeshift “fence” behind their RV.  This dog ALWAYS barks when I go outside and well, since it’s outside all.the.time then anytime I open my door – it barks.  It’s quite annoying.  Anyways, long story short, they put up a wooden barrier between my house and the “fenced” in area.  (they probably overheard me tell this dog to shut up quite a few times) I’ll have to get a picture tonight to show you because it’s ridiculous…they pretty much found dead trees and propped them up to create this “fence” thing.  They also have a pile of wooden crates sitting right outside my door.  Yes, I need pictures because it’s seriously 5′ from my front door.

I think I found a new parking spot at just the right time!
