After a long week off, I didn't get nearly as much accomplished as I had hoped for.  We did work on getting our guest room painted and put together with our old bed (pictures to come once it is totally finished), and we got our new king size bed set up.    After all that searching for just the right comforter set, I ended up not liking the one I had chosen.  We decided on a plain brown duvet cover instead.  It isn't exactly what I had in mind, but after we get a little paint on the walls I am sure it will be just fine.

I enjoyed the nice weather today and went on a walk/jog at the park.  This was the first run I have been on since the triathlon in February.  It is amazing how quickly you lose your fitness level!  I think spring may officially be here!  Enjoy the warm weather everyone!

I had lunch with Susan today, and it was so nice to be able to catch up.  We realized that we hadn't seen each other since her wedding, which was last April!  I can't believe it has almost been a year.  We had a really nice lunch and sat and talked for almost 3 hours.  We both promised to get together a lot more frequently.

Running? What's that?

Have you noticed a lack of posting about running?  Well, that is because there has been a severe lack of running (or any exercise for that matter).  Between grad school and work, exercising has sort of been put on the back burner.  Also, I feel like this winter has been so long and drawn out.  I can't wait for the nice weather to get here to stay!  

I am almost finished with my class this semester, just a few more weeks that I plan on dedicating to writing these last two papers.  I am really going to enjoy my short break between the spring and summer semesters.  I keep telling myself that each week of class is that much closer to graduation, which is tentatively set for May 2013.

Catching up

The last month has been more than busy.  My nursing theory class is taking much more effort than I have been wanting to put in!  I have about 8 more weeks of class left, but a lot more work to go in those 8 weeks.  
I have been down with a bad cold for a little over a week.  Today I finally drug myself off the couch and to the park for a walk.  It is amazing how out of shape you feel after being sick.  The good news is the weather was beautiful, sun was shining and I saw tulips and daffodils starting to pop up around the park.

We have been shopping for a few more pieces of furniture.  First is a tv stand to hold our new tv.  We are going to be putting the one we have now down into the basement, and are anxiously awaiting the delivery of our new one.  We found an entertainment stand that we both agree on, and have been on a search for a king size bed frame.  It is time for a new mattress as the one I have now is the one I bought before I went to college (the first time...) Wish us luck!  
Here are the pics of our prospects:
