I have serisouly sat for at least 3 days trying to think of ANYTHING to write about this week for my blog. I still have come up with nothing. Seeing as my life is SO exciting, here are just a few things that have been going on in my life lately.
Still training for the half marathon!! I’ve done two 5-mile long runs and survived….this week is 6 miles, dun dun dun. I had to get new running shoes, which has turned out to be a saga. I know I should have gone to the official running store, but the shoes there are twice as expensive and this girl still has no job. I also should have done more research ahead of time. Needless to say, I’m not quite sure I have the right pair of shoes, but that’s my own fault and I’m trying to make them work seeing as how it’s too late to return them and I can’t drop another $50+ on a new pair. Pray they work out.
I DO have a job for summer!! Oak Hill Day Camp is know as a great camp, and I am going to be a special needs counselor and get to have one kid all to myself for each session!! I’m really excited, cuz I love one-on-one time with kids. But don’t worry, we’ll also be with a group so it’s not like the kid is isolated with me (boy, that would be a barrel of monkeys).
My parents visited last weekend for a basketball game and various other Nashville activities. It’s getting harder to keep them entertained and do new things. But we went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, which I had never been to either, and it was awesome!! My parents enjoyed more than I did simply because it was all the music they grew up on, but I really enjoyed it too. I like all the history-type crap. Nerd in me. We also rode the Big Pink Bus for the Nashtrash Tour, which I highly recommend if you live here or are visiting. It’s a little pricey, but it’s definitely one of those things you need to do once. It’s more entertainment than tour, but you will not stop laughing the whole time.
Also while my parents were here, we visited the fairly new Belle Meade Winery, located at the plantation. We toured the plantation a few years ago, but I love wine, so we had to go back just for that. There’s no charge to go and you can try all 4 of their wines for free! All the wines are on the sweeter side, from the crisp Carriage House White to the super-sweet Blackberry dessert wine. We bought a bottle of the Muscadine wine, which is sweet but not too sweet. I can’t wait to share it with the roomies! The labels are beautiful and I’m looking to buy a label frame so eventually I can frame the labels of all 4.
That’s about all from me. Not thrilling, I know, but I felt the need to post something. Here’s to hoping my part-time job starts next week!
