Living in a city makes certain things more difficult. Laundry and grocery shopping are two of them. I recently started bringing my laundry (clothes only) to the laundromat to be washed, dried, and folded every Wednesday for their $1/pound special. The first week I had 18lbs. This week it was only 14lbs. Sure, laundry is… Continue reading All About Efficiency: Laundry Service and AmazonFresh
I had a good run this morning before work. No, I had a GREAT run. I promised myself I'd go for 3 miles but walk as much as I needed to. After the first mile I felt really good, but reminded myself that my body is still recovering, so I decided to walk for 1… Continue reading A Good Run!

I worked (from home) a full day on Friday and… Continue reading Sinus Surgery 2.0 Update: Post-Op Days 2-3
Thursday was completely uneventful. I woke up around 6:30am and tried to go back to sleep but Chip was eager to go out, so we went for our normal morning walk. I emailed my boss to let her know that everything went fine on Wednesday and that I was feeling pretty good, but too tired… Continue reading Sinus Surgery 2.0 Update: Post-Op Day 1
