normally, i detest sunday evenings. call it a case of the sundays, but lately the thought of having to face another week while hanging out at home alone watching pvr'ed tv has made me cringe.
but this evening, i am feeling quite content with my weekend after a rather lame week. a solid 7km run followed by drinks with an old friend on friday night accompanied by encouragement to go to law school. breakfast and great chats on saturday morning and then my posse and i hauled ourselves to the nashville north tent at the stampede where i lasted until the wee hours and only left when my feet were too sore for anymore dancing. then a sunday morning hike with a lovely lady and an afternoon with tours of my mom's garden and a vietnamese sub (because i have no food in my house!).
my wobbly moment continues, however, and i had to give myself permission to opt out of a work stampede party last friday without any guilt or remorse because i just was not in the mood to make merry and pretend that i was happy to be at a bar. there is not one thing i wish i could change and if there was, i would be working my arse off to change it.
i have yet to hear back about my most perfect job and part of me just wants to the universe to show me where i need to be and what i should be doing.
but in the meantime, i continue to prepare for my hiking adventure and that means soaking my poor cowboy boot feet tonight and finding time to get my buns back up those stairs, hopefully this time without stopping. menu planning, airport pickups, and a little mountain equipment co-op shopping and i should be ready to go. it is nice to have something to look forward to!
