Um, I have no excuses for the way in which I have dropped off the face of the blogging planet. I bet all my old followers are gone; even my parents. Awesome. Well, I will catch you up on the last month with everyone’s favorite format: By the Numbers!
2: The number of triathlons I have now completed in my lifetime. #3 (hopefully) happens Aug. 1, 2010 in Duluth, MN.
8: The number of ladies that traveled to the City of Lakes for a fabulous bachelorette party for a very dear college friend*.
543: The miles driven (round trip) to be in said college friend’s beautiful wedding. It is truly a wonderful blessing and honor to be invited to be a member of anyone’s wedding party and celebrate their love. Plus, a free dance party in a fancy dress is ALWAYS on this mugwump’s agenda.
2,763: The number of words cut from my Masters Project to make it a manuscript. Publishing? Maybe. Maybe not. But it’s a good experience nonetheless.
10(ish): The number of weeks I have been in my internship at the City of Minneapolis. Also, the number of weeks I have LOVED my job at the City of Minneapolis.
7:1: The odds I will place a $2 bet on a losing horse at the races.
19: The number of days left on our lease in Uptown. The move is bittersweet. Excited to be moving in with my sister and brother-in-law, but terribly heartbroken to leave the fabulous women I have been living with for the last 14 months. Although, as one roommate put it, a physical move at this point in our lives is simply a tangible manifestation of the real moves we are all making: moving towards careers and independence. Forward motion is always positive, even if it occasionally results in the physical departure from things and people we have held very dear.
1: The number of golden birthdays we each get.
12: The number of days until my one and only golden birthday.
Bajillion: The amount of fun (on a scale of 1-10) I plan on having that day.**
* So weird to call people “college friends,” as if I were really that far from the time I spent in college.
** Good, clean, safe fun.
