six month summary

   Posted by: arcanai   in Nuthin' Special

i think it’s pretty clear that i’m never going to get caught up on this blog so i might as well just do a short compendium of what i’ve been up to the last six months and go from there.  maybe, just maybe, i can get back into this.  so, here’s what’s been going on:

  • in the eleven holiday seasons i have spent with my hubby, 2009 was the first time we spent Christmas with my family.  it was a lot of fun and i’m so glad we did it.  not that i don’t love my in-laws but it was a nice change to spend such a special time with mine.
  • we also threw our first real party – a new year’s eve party (hmm, i thought i had posted pix on fb but apparently not).  it was wildly successful and everyone had a blast.  there was tons of food, rock band, and a cheesy prom-style photo booth.  it was great and i look forward to trying again next year. 
  • hubby ran his first full marathonat disney.  it was a fun and full weekend.  we went with a bunch of friends from around home and stayed at a super nice hotel together.  we watched my cousin and a several friends run the half marathon in the snow, sleet, and rain.  yep, snow in orlando.  second time in my life i’ve seen that.  the next day, hubby and a bunch of friends ran the full marathon.  he hated it when he finished but i think he’ll do it again. 
  • i spent many, many long weeks training for my first half marathon, which is about the only thing that actually has been posted here in the last six months. 
  • after years of planning, we finally hiked the grand canyon!  it was such an amazing experience and i was incredibly proud of myself at the end of it.  way more of an accomplishment than the half marathon. 
  • we celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary with a day of boating and relaxing.  i love my husband.
  • i have become a true surf-widow.  if there’s the slightest hint of surf when the work day is done, hubby is out the door.  i might need to give it a try sometime this summer.
  • we have spent countless weekends and nights having great times with our fabulous friends.  this is by far the best place we have lived!

there now, don’t you feel better now that you’ve had a brain-blog dump?
