Here are some random tidbits of what's going on right meow.
Over the weekend
Yesterday we went to Multnomah falls with a friend of Monkey's and hiked the equivalent of 236 flights of stairs. By the end of the day I could barely lift my legs. Today my hips and knees are sore and I have two blisters on my right foot. Definitely worth it for the fresh air, time with Monkey, and some awesome exercise. Especially since we spent the first couple of miles speed hiking to get past all the tourists and lollygaggers at the bottom.
|I think this is maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of the way to the tippy tippy top. Monkey sportin his Spartan Race t-shirt from a couple weeks ago.|
|We don't often get a picture of the two of us that wasn't taken at arms length.|
|Like this one. :) PS, I'll be the first to admit, I airbrushed this pic. (Crows feet, blemishes...) Yeah, I'm one of those girls, well sometimes. But hey, if I paid for the education to learn how, I might as well use it for my own good.|
Anyway, on to the "other news" part of this post.
This week I was supposed to be on vacation. However I greatly miss-guessed when their stand down/leave period would be. I figured I would reserve a week off then move it to the right or left when I knew more. Yeah, I was a little too far off. Like, a month or so off. Since I really want to take some time off but couldn't possibly occupy myself for a whole week alone, I opted to just shorten it and take three days. Even at that, I'm not sure I'll be able to fill all of my time. Though, I suppose I could use the extra time to catch up on the freelance design stuff I've been promising people.
Anyway, I'm taking Wed-Friday off to spend all by myself. It took me forever to decide which three days to take off. I won't go into details about my scaterbrained reasoning for why this decision was so difficult, but the final choice was pretty much decided by the fact that we are presenting the next round of logo comps we've been working on for weeks and I really want mine to be chosen so I want to be here for the presentation.
I have lined up a schedule of all the fun fitness and dance classes that I've been meaning to take for quite some time. I'm also going to finally use the spa package Monkey bought be for my birthday. And then hopefully, go hiking again with some friends. Since my days off runs right into my weekend and Monkey has the "weekend killer" Saturday duty and I won't see him at all this weekend, I'll just carry that over through Saturday and Sunday as well. I bought a Groupon for some ballet-fitness classes that look like fun. So, pretty much I'll be exercising all day for 5 days straight. Well, except for that spa day. And, that sounds like the best 5 days ever. It could only be better if Monkey was here too.
