A few things have kept me from blogging: (1) work and (2) Pinterest.
As you might recall, I found out in November I was getting a new role at EY. Well, I've basically been *trying* to do two jobs since around Thanksgiving. It didn't get really bad until January hit as my replacement still hadn't been found and I was getting to a point where I really need to focus on my new job. I realized pretty quickly I would need to adjust my schedule and so came up with a plan to work 60hr weeks. While this won't last forever, it still stinks. I have to say though, I'm very appreciative EY allows me the flexibility to leave work by 4pm so I can miss traffic and get home more quickly. Doing this gives me the opportunity to work as needed and still get to eat dinner at a decent time and get a workout in. Thanks EY!!!
Pinterest is my newest addiction. I love checking out new ideas for projects, decorating, cooking, etc. I seriously could waste hours on that site. Sometimes I think I should just go on a leave of absence and make as much crap as I can and get it all out of my system.
I am training for an event...The Woodlands Half Marathon. The only triathlon I'm officially signed up for is the Hy-Vee National Championship in September so it's nice to have a little "down time" right now and focus on running. It's not like I have much of a choice with my work schedule. I will be signing up for some other triathlons very soon though so don't worry....I'll get back to the fun stuff soon enough.
Okey dokey smokey. That's about all I have time for tonight. I promise not to be a stranger!!!
