Serendipity?

Something happened yesterday. Although it wasn’t a complete surprise, I was still a bit speechless when all was said and done.

It was a series of events that, when looked at separately, weren’t all that notable, but after putting them together, they can only be described as serendipitous-fitting together just-so for a perfectly timed and somewhat surprising result.

Each event led up to this final outcome. Again, it doesn’t seem that notable, however it will set into motion a new chain of events that will produce a major change….a new chapter, if you will.

I’m excited, terrified, somewhat stressed and at peace. I don’t know what will happen but I do know that right now, at this moment we are exactly where we need to be.

And I can only leave the rest up to Him.


It’s Finally Friday!

Just kidding. I mean…it is Friday. But it was a crazy week-it flew by…seriously, where did it go? And why did I not accomplish 3134 of the 4231 items on my list of things to do?!

In other news, I’m pretty proud of myself; I’m down 15 lbs (11 since using mfp) and I’m ALMOST into another pair of pants I haven’t worn in a looooong time. Again, big surprise.

I’m also back to running-after I got that nasty stomache bug a week or so ago, I’ve been bad about pounding the pavement…until this week!

Also, I’m having a minor freakout-I am running a 5k tomorrow! For fun. But I haven’t run a race in a long time! I’m not expecting much time-wise (not yet, anyway!). I’m just hoping to keep my nerves down until I start the race. Gah! Seriously, thinking about this is making my stomach flip-flop and… I think I just started sweating!

Another plus about this weekend? I’m off. So is Ben. We have brisket to smoke, 5ks to run and worlds to conquer! I am pretty excited!

We also signed up to be “Foodie Pen Pals!” For more information, click the badge on my homepage. We find out who our match is tomorrow and I am completely stoked. It’s a really awesome concept and I can’t wait to join in. I love mail…I turn into a kid at Christmas when I get mail…especially packages!

Alright, over and out folks.

Have a great weekend!!!
