I'm still alive.
Last week my hearing took over my life. I got absolutely nothing else done and I was completely overwhelmed. But it really was a great experience. I am still really happy about it. But then I got sick. :( Thursday night my throat felt raw ... Read more
Completely Run Down and another Crossfit Challenge
The nightmare week is finally over. I think Monday night was the only night I got home at a decent time. Tuesday I was at work until 9pm. That's literally 13+ hours at work! Wednesday I was at work until 7:30pm and Thursday until 7:30pm - bo... Read more
So Stressed, but Upcoming Fun!
I have basically come to accept the fact that I am going to be staying late at work for the next few months. I cannot believe how much work I have taken on recently. One of my coworkers had been emailing me thanking me for taking extra work on... Read more
Running in the Rain, and other miscellany
Yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed my rest day. After work I headed up to the mall, shopped unsuccessfully, and then hit up Old Navy where I purchased a new bikini. It's just a simple black one, but inexpensive, on sale, and I like it. I am wash... Read more
When you go, just know that I will remember you...
Blech. I'm feeling melancholy. Well, only slightly. I'm pretty happy actually, but got some nagging bits in my head right now...but I'll get to that.
Yesterday I had to sit in on an arbitration all day - it was sooo boring. This is the ... Read more
Feeling Strong and Appreciated
After my 90 minute workout yesterday (45 bike/45 swim) I was completely worn out and slept AMAZINGLY last night. I only woke up once in the middle of the night (as opposed to my usual 3 or 4 times - generally to use the bathroom from all the wa... Read more
Back to the Grind of it All

Weekend of Giant Holes in the Earth (with pictures!)
This past weekend my good friend Dakota and I took a mini-road trip to the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, and Meteor Crater! It was a fantastic time! We left to start our trip around 5pm after stopping first to get gas and some snacks and wat... Read more
Friday, I love you.
Hooray! It's Friday, and considering it was only a 4 day workweek, it is sad that I am so excited to have a weekend off.
Last night was a total failure. I definitely did NOT work out despite my gym bag being packed and in my car. The cra... Read more
Some Lunchtime Thoughts
For one thing, I just sat through a normally 30 minute meeting that ended up lasting 1.5 hours, and the only reason I had to go to the meeting was to let the med group know that there are currently no medical malpractice claims (because there ar... Read more

4. Drop dow... Read more
Where have I been??
I had a nice long weekend away. Friday morning I flew out of Phoenix to Newark. The flight was a long 5 hours, and though my flight left at 8:30am we did not land in NJ until 4:30pm - stupid time zone changes! My dad picked me up at the airpo... Read more
Super Cranky (and freezing)
It is not TOM for another week, but I feel like it is right now because I am feeling super cranky and getting annoyed at people rather easily (though keeping it to myself, like the civilized gal that I am). Yesterday was a pretty good day. I h... Read more
Six Years Ago.... Already!!
On May 25, 2004 - SIX YEARS AGO - I had major knee reconstruction. A distal realignment of my patella. The specific procedure was the Elmslie Trillat Procedure - not a procedure commonly used anymore.
It all started when I was in high sch... Read more
A Few Days Worth of Updates...
I've been MIA and not faithful to my blogging as of late. So I'll recap:
I ended up eating too much on Friday. Between donuts brought in by a co-worker to work during one of our trainings, and then craving pizza after work. Ugh... Read more
