Sorry for the long posting hiatus. I think it was the longest I have ever taken off from blogging. In the last two weeks I have taken 4 flights, spent over 24 hours road trippin’, and stayed in 4 different hotels. Needless to say I’m excited to get back to normal life.
This weekend I [...]
OK that title may be a little dramatic. Starting tomorrow I’m going to be out of town for 12 out of the next 13 days (four different trips/locations). I love traveling to cool places for work and to see friends and family, but I get overwhelmed being away that long.
I’m going to Chicago [...]
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! For those of you who have been following the Leela drama, the latest update is that the orthopedist says she needs surgery in her knee (possibly both knees) within the next few weeks. There would be a 6-8 week recovery period where she would have to be crated most of the [...]
Today I was supposed to do a 40 minute tempo run after work, but at around 2:30 pm I got an email from the dog walking company that the dog walker had come to the house and Leela was not there. She said the walker had checked around and could not find her. Plus she [...]
Today has been the most gorgeous weather here in DC – sunny and a high of 46*. Yesterday was cold and dreary so I switched my workouts so I could run outside today (50 minutes on the trainer yesterday was a perfect rainy day workout). Instead of doing Rock Creek Park, I decided to run [...]
I’m not going to sugar coat it – I’ve been kind of stressed since Leela has shown zero signs of improvement since she hurt her leg. The good news is that she went for an x-ray this morning and there was no sign of major damage. The bad news is that if she doesn’t get [...]
After being away the last two weekends, I was so happy to have no major plans this weekend. We hosted a big family celebration for Neil’s birthday Saturday night (I made 2 kinds of chili to serve 12 people), but other than that it was wide open.
Also, since we had gotten the house cleaned [...]
This morning started out like any typical Monday morning. Alarm goes off at 6:30 am. I silently curse it as I get myself out of bed, change into a few layers of running clothes and drive with Leela to Rock Creek Park.
We were about .75 miles into our trail run, when Leela runs [...]
I love, love, love roasted vegetables. I make them at least a few times a week with a variety of veggies: broccoli, squash (summer and winter), sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, peppers, onions….you name it, I’ll roast it! A few weeks ago I attempted to make a roasted vegetable casserole so I could include my favorite [...]
I’ve had a really busy few days, but thanks to an ice storm last night I have a two-hour delay this morning and I can finally blog. Highlights of the last few days:
Wonderful dinner at Komi’s for our anniversary. It was an amazing meal. If you are ever in the DC area and want [...]
