I’ve had a bit of trouble keeping consistent with runs. It’s been hot, we’ve been busy, and some stupid crap has happened that’s derailed me. No point in getting upset over stuff I can’t handle. Just have to figure out how to make it work for me.
I realized I am doing too much this summer – I have too many trips in mind, too many weekends already planned. This is weird for me, I usually feel very lonely. Even in the midst of everything going on, I will feel very lonely and like no one wants to hang out with me. The grass is always greener, I guess! When I have nothing to do, I wish I was doing something, and vice versa!

My husband and I made a list of things that we could be doing every night that don’t cost extra money. Mostly stuff around the house that we put off for one reason or another. Productivity makes you really feel awesome.
