My Age

For the first time in 36 years I actually feel my age. I've felt this way for the past month or two and it may be Crossfit kicking my ass or it may be that I'm 36 and old.

My mother facetimed me yesterday as I was attempting to get off the couch for water. There may have been some creaking and moaning involved in that attempt, which prompted my mother to ask "what is wrong with you?" Old age mom, old age.

This weekend has me both scared and excited. Scared, because I'm going to do a 10k run on basically one 3mile long run and sporadic 2milers. But, I'm SUPER EXCITED to see my friends that live in Cincinnati!!

Also, I'm back on the dating scene and it's exhausting. I got emailed by a 21yo offering to be my slave and calling me a goddess. My sister made me throw him back. Which, in retrospect was the right call but may have been fun for a bit.

A crazy sidenote about this dating..I was talking with a friend the other day about my dating life and prospects and mentioned that if I could just form the carpenter Hot Dan into a boyfriend I would probably be all set. We had chemistry but his drinking and such made him a bad BF. Guess who texted the next day? And he doesn't drink anymore! So....we'll see. going to try to meet up Sunday.

I love my family. Sometimes they KILL me. Case in point, my mom asked where she was when I last called her on her cell. I just couldn't. It didn't help that I had just pulled up to a yard covered in trash.  I gave up that day.

But then we have conversations like this:

Did I mention I basically have a mohawk now?

And I KNOW we talk about things that other mother/daughters, fathers/daughters, or sisters don't talk about. I've mentioned conversations that I've had with my family to friends and they can not believe that we talk openly about those subjects. And I love it. I love all the conversations, even the frustrating ones.

Every Damn Day
It's been almost a month since I last wrote in here. I just can't believe how fast time goes. I really have no good excuse. I had neuro exam, Easter with the family, my sister was in town to go dress shopping, and I've been sick.

Just a quick update. I'm technically still dating Joshua. I say technically because I'm not sure I want to be. He's a very sweet guy but I just don't feel for him the way I think I should. And not the way he feels for me. He's always seems so excited to see me and I not excited to see him. And I have no desire to "be" with him. At two months we should still be hot and heavy for each other.
So I think that's ending. Just not sure when. He's so nice.....

Crossfit has been going well. I didn't go this past week but I have legit excuses. Monday and Tuesday I was wedding dress shopping with my sister! So much fun watching her try on dresses. It's going to be hard to decide on a dress, she looks gorgeous in all of them. I do have a favorite though. Right after she left my house I got sick with a terrible cold and haven't been able to breath properly until today. THAT would make crossfit extremely difficult and I'm pretty sure they would not appreciate me leaking snot all over their equipment. But, I plan on going in tomorrow.

Obviously, running has been out for the past week too. I did get 2 miles in a week ago. Pretty sure I'm going to DIE during the Flying Pig 10K. But since the weather has gotten better, I'm hoping to get more running in.
