This weekend is kind of like my personal New Years Eve. This past week was my last week as a full-time-available substitute; on Monday I go back to grad school with three classes on my schedule. To say I'm excited would be an understatement.
Ever since I decided to finish up my curriculum certification, I have been extremely impatient in waiting for the semester to start. I just want it done! I'm ready to look for administrative positions, I'm ready to move on, and I'm ready to not have to deal with unemployment anymore.
Hubs and I even had bubbly last night - in the form of Lambrusco. Not the cheap-o kind in the jug, but some *real* Italian Lambrusco. HOLY MOLY was it good. This morning I'm celebrating by going to a beginners' half-marathon clinic at the local running store. They are advertising group runs on Sunday morning, which is my perfect running time. I wanted so badly to run with the group at night, but I just can't drag myself back out of the house at night, especially in this cold. But who knows - maybe that will change.
I'm especially excited to start my classes because I get to stay with my mom on Monday nights, and there are fantastic places to run and bike where she lives. I grew up there and know the roads well, so I'll be able to plan some long training runs for when I'm there. It's perfect timing to do my training!
So *cheers* to new beginnings and all of our goals!
- drink lots of water
- make some phone calls
