Havin' Some Fun Now!

Its me - I'm still around. I'm just still struggling to get myself out of the funk that I've been in. I'm not depressed, or anything like that - I just don't have the desire to blog that I once had. I've also been trying not to log into blogger from work, and that is pretty much the only time that I blog. I'm actually sending this one from my email. I'm sure I'll snap out of it soon.

In the mean time, life has been good and lots has been going on. We took the girls rollerskating last night and it was way less ghetto than I was expecting - the place was packed. Neither girl had ever been, and it was actually quite comical to watch them slipping and sliding all around. We went with some friends who's kids have their own skates, so they were much better than my kids and G got a little frustrated. It was hard work too - I actually broke a sweat. But this morning, she told me that she was anxious to go back - I think I may buy them some skates for their birthdays. I staked around a bit too - Ben told me to skate so they could watch me, and it was fun to see that mommy could still do the YMCA with the best of the teenagers.

I also got the chance to go to a showing at the Sundance Film Festival this past weekend. I had a friend working, and she got us into a screening. We didn't really know what we were going to see, and when we got there, it was a bunch of short movies. But, it was fine - I was out on a Saturday night. Then the movies started . . . I think there were 7 movies total. Out of that 7, 6 were completely awful, 3 had graphic nudity, 2 had harsh language (and 3 others were in foreign languages so they may have too), and 4 were so abstract that I had no idea what the film was even about. Overall though, it was a totally fun evening. We all went to dinner afterwards. We dined on pizza and salad, served by the world's worst waiter, in the midst of a snowstorm. But really, it was a memorable night.

I'm glad I was able to have some fun and relaxing, because next week is going to be difficult - I'm going to be a single mom. My husband will be gone for an entire week, helping a friend move states, (before you think he is the best friend ever, he is getting paid to help) and will be gone from Sunday - Saturday. I really wanted to tell him not to do it, but a) we could really use the money for our trip next month and b) I don't know how to say "no" - it isn't in my vocabulary.


In other, completely unrelated news, I think Bryn is finally potty trained. Last night was her first night sleeping in panties. She hasn't had an accident - either daytime or nighttime - in quite a while. She told me that she just isn't going to potty in her pants anymore, and I think she means it. Being stubborn can be good I suppose.

(And continuing with unrelated news) I did sign up to run the Wasatch Back in June, and I'm back on full training. Its been difficult, but only because I feel better than I know I should. I really don't want to get injured again, and since I know that most running-related injury comes from running faster/further/longer than a body is conditioned to do, I'm trying really hard to not come out too fast/far/long. But I feel great, and my body wants to run more. I'm also trying to do more hills - since I'm sure that will be something I'll be running a lot of in the race. And I'm only adding 10% of mileage per week - injuries stay away!

At any rate, life is good and I'm having fun.

Wow. Not logging into blogger from work. THat is quite a resolution. I've tried that a couple of times, but always cave. Lately though I've been hitting up other sites instead because I've kind of lost my motivation to blog too. Opposite of you though, I think I am depressed most of the time and ppl don't want to hear that kind of crap!

I can't roller skate to save my life, so good work.

Whoa you got to go to Sundance! That is awesome. Sad about the movies being a bit disappointing with all that graphic crap. Glad to see you back on the bloggosphere! :)

I'm bummed that I didn't go to any Sundance films. I usually like to go.
