Amazing Friday morning breakfast:
Egg, turkey bacon, and avocado quesadilla made with a Flatout wrap. Love those things!
Yeah, breakfasts like that are not normal in our household. But I could not sleep last night! So annoying. I eventually ended up just getting up at 5:30AM. The worst part is that Friday is my day off! (So rough I have it, I know) But when I couldn’t fall asleep I kept thinking — I’m wasting my day off! Haha. So dramatic. I think it’s just because I’ve been a little stressed this week. I’m back in the swing of things with my biz — I’m pretty sure I taught the most lessons ever this week! Nobody was out of town or in the mood to skip plus I had two new students start (and hilariously, two also quit due to moving and long commutes). So that was all good — just busy.
But Wednesday I was totally freaked out when I looked at my Facebook feed between lessons there was a warning for people in our neighborhood to lock their doors and not go outside!! And then frantic calls from my students’ parents started coming in because they were stuck in areas the polices had barricaded off because there was some shooting and car chase going on. Everything turned out fine as it could I suppose, but it didn’t make me love living in the city. Every time I start to embrace it, something crazy violent seems to happen in our general vicinity. :( However, I think Denver is trying to make it up to me, because it’s supposed be 57 today!!!
After all the whining in my last post about going out in the cold weather with Pippa C., I made it out this week in SHORTS!
Want to know why?
And yes, that’s my excuse for not having my bed made yet. The dogs burrow!
Meanwhile, Pippa and I managed a little trick I like to call Massive Negative Splits:
Haha. Hilarious, right? Okay, so I spent the first 1.5 miles reviewing some Spanish prepositions. That sounds like sarcasm, right? Lol. Seriously, though, I’m kind of addicted to the Duolingo app.
I want to go through every level in every language offered. So far, I’m just testing out of levels — but I’m racking all sorts of encouraging trophies and related bling!
I also have to say that Miss Pippa was huffing and puffing a bit towards the end of that run. That never happens!! I guess that’s technically my fault for not getting my little athlete out as much in the last month.
What do you do when you really need to relax? Working out for sure — also baking, and of course, cafe!
Which do you prefer city, small town, or country? Kevin and I are always discussing what it would be like to move back to small towns in MN after living in Denver (although it’s not huge, it’s a big contrast!). I grew up in a tiny town, but since college I’ve lived primarily in Santiago and Denver. Love them all in their own ways.
