May: In Review

1 Wedding (not my own)
2 Receptions
3 weekends out of town
4 different seasons weather patterns
5K in rain, sleet, snow, and hail
6 gallons of strawberry bisque
7 different beds in the month of May
8 days with hand, foot, and mouth disease
9 batches of hot cocoa
10 days without a run...not the best idea

my latest adventure...

so i decided to go to denver for memorial day. i have arrived. with all the class and style necessary for my type of travel. don't you worry. i left my sleeping bag in the airport and had to go back after it. oh yes. it was amazing. security at the airport said there was no way that i could back after it because i no longer had a valid boarding pass. luckily the airline got me in. i went back to the bench i had left it on and it wasn't there. i did locate it at the nearby information booth. when i volunteered to claim the little lost sleeping bag, the (rather attractive) security guard looked at me quizzically (nice word usage, eh?) and questioned the sleeping bag. i explained that it was in 2 compression sacks. he told me he had been afraid to open it because he thought it was a rubber raft that was going to explode. yes. that was my airport adventure.

I've giggled all morning long...

I read this and the possibilities have been endless.

Oh my...

So my best friend got married yesterday. I had one of those ridiculously awkward wedding experiences that only ever happens in the movies. I generally am totally secure in my single state. When it's my time, I'll meet the perfect guy and live my "happily ever after" but in the mean time, I'm not waiting for him. I'll have "happily ever after" with or without him. Somehow at the wedding luncheon, I ended up at table with 3 other single friends of the bride from different parts of the country, all in varying states of security in their singleness. I'm not going to lie. I found it 100% hilarious and managed to secretly not say anything or laugh out loud. I was rather proud of myself. The conversation quickly turned to how happy they were in the success of their careers, but there is an obvious shortage of men to match their standards. There was an unofficial "wo is me" kind of debate. I think I understand why people get drunk at weddings. That's about it.
PS Best Moments of the Day
1) The bisque was a raging success at the reception.
2) Lidocaine mouthwash is the best thing to ever hit a mouthful of canker sores.
3) I can eliminate stress and hopefully stress-induced maladies with 2 weeks of relaxation.

I went to the doctor today for the first time since before my mission. What did she tell me? I have a funky virus in my throat. What does that mean? I'm going to have canker sores in my throat and mouth for the next 7-10 days. Yay me.

I'm tired.

Since I last posted, I have run a 5K, finished a quilt, shopped for and made 6 gallons of strawberry bisque, done laundry, unofficially planned the next 2 years of my life, spent some fantastic quality time with my nephew, been to 2 different bridal showers for 2 different roommates, filled my gas tank at least 3 times, talked to my mother on the phone about a million times, and caught some cold-ish, flu-ish, thrush-ish something that makes me tired. I don't have time to get sick. I'm not done with my list of things to do yet. I guess the shining factor in all of this is that fact that sick or not, I'm still going. I got an email yesterday letting me know that one of the kids I grew up with was killed in a car accident yesterday. He was coming home to baptize his daughter. Life is so fragile and I'm still so blessed. Tired or not.
