I love October. Not just because it's my birthday month, also because of the wonderful changes that happen! The leaves, the temperature (last night on the news they said how the average temp drops ten degrees in October!) and the change of season always refreshes me.
We had someone come and look at our house to rent it, and while I'm not sure it will work out, I'm still thrilled that somebody is actually interested! I am putting flyers up wherever I can, and hubs and I are updating our listing this afternoon.
For the first time in about a month I actually feel like getting my duff up off the couch and doing some workouts. I signed up for a triathlon training class and I guess I had better get my money's worth! It includes a 1x per week swimming class, which is really going to be good for me. I'm already a strong swimmer (it's my best out of the three in a tri) so I'm looking forward to getting even better.
Hubs is going back to work today - I am glad (I've missed my alone time) but I'm also a little sad. I've kinda gotten used to him being around, and I need to make sure I'm eating good foods even when he's not around. I think it would have been really easy to eat away my sadness with take-out, but hubs made sure that I wasn't. He's the best.
One of my fellow laid-off teachers is coming over for pizza and beer tonight. We're making our own pizza - I'm really looking forward to this since I haven't had pizza in FOREVER. It's been really good to have her for support. Although I've been really grateful for everyone's kind words, it's really nice just to sit and complain about the unfairness of it all with someone who is going through the same thing.
Time to get my gym stuff together...
