Since I’ve been in a bloggy funk – I thought it was appropriate to update you on a few things that have been happening around my crazy filled life…
As I stated yesterday, work has been crazy. I also started the second of three classes that will earn me my professional designation of ARM, Associate in Risk Management. I know I’m a nerd…. Between that and managing an entire 4 state territory all by my lonesome I’ve been jammed packed with requests for quotes for international insurance and servicing our already existing account base. Enough with the nerdy insurance talk…
Days on Market: 64
# of showings: 13...which averages to approximately 1.44 showings per week.
# of price decreases: 2
My loving sister, Anna, repainted my kitchen for me over the last two days. Apparently people don’t like the color grasscloth as much as I do. My kitchen was soooo cute – but now it’s Brown Teepee; still cute (same color as my living room) but not FUN green! Hoping this entices more buyers and makes the house more “turnkey” – coupled with the price decrease, the end of school and the summer approaching I’m hoping my house sells F.A.S.T.
I bought a new ride. It’s pretty sweet if I do say so myself. A 2009 Honda pilot touring edition; Gray on the inside, Gray on the outside. (to the tune of “cream on the inside; clean on the outside – ice cream, ice cream, ice cream paint job” – anyone with me on that?) Anyway…
It’s a dark gray on the outside and light gray leather interior, navigation, Bluetooth, six CD changer, power seats, windows and doors…third row seating and enough room for the doggies!!!! I got a great deal on it at Sewell Cadillac in Grapevine – so if you are looking for a car and you are in the area – you should go there…they are awesome!
I’ll post pics soon!
My training has been lax for better terms……. But I’m excited to get back on the band wagon and start training for my Olympic distance race in June. I've also planned out my race schedule through the end of the year so now I have something to look forward to - and not just training to train with no goal in mind.
Here is what I'm thinking:
June - Olympic Distance Race - Play Tri Festival
July - Olympic Distance Race - Disco Tri
August - Hula Girl Sprint Tri - put on by the FABULOUS Shannon
September - Prairieman 70.3
October - Cheering on Cayla, Jason (and whoever else decideds to race) at the Longhorn 70.3 + Livestrong Challenge for year 3
November - DRC Half
December - Full Marathon!! Either Vegas or White Rock.....depends on funds
I ran 4 miles on Monday, took Tuesday off b/c of work events and rode on my trainer for an hour tonight. Tomorrow is OWS with Jason and possible others, then run on Friday, bike Sat/Sun (maybe a swim Sunday depending). We are headed to San Antonio on Saturday for Cayla's sisters wedding...so that should be fun!
Other than that .... next weekend, May 21 I'm getting my SPIN CERTIFICATION! I love spinning...whether on my trainer or at the gym and I love people so combine the two and I thought - HEY what a way to earn a few extra bucks and do what I love! We shall see how it goes - but I'll keep you all updated.
Now I'm off to make homemade whole wheat pizza and salad for dinner!
