A few of you have reached out recently because I haven’t posted in a while, and I love you for that! But have no worries, I’m safe and sound. And very exhausted. Blame it on the travel.
Here is where I have been in the last six weeks:
In the beginning of June I took a road trip for work to New Jersey and spent the night in Pennsylvania. The silver lining was I got to hang with one of my oldest friend (we met when we were 12), and we sang karaoke and got hit on by bar flies. It was just like old times.
The week of June 17th, I was in Dallas Texas and was holed up in my hotel, just not feeling the travel vibe. I did run my first 5K in the gym though, and that was an amazing feeling!
The following week I was in London, England. Yes, London. As much as the travel makes me insane, I can’t get over the fact that I get to go to different countries for work. Pardon my indulgence here:
During the first week of July we took a road trip from Connecticut to Minneapolis (New York, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota) for a National Taekwondo competition.
I didn’t know it but Minneapolis is a super hip city. It’s eco and veggie friendly, and super clean. I had no idea. This pizza place was my favorite spot.
Jack earned a silver medal in breaking, and sixth place in form. It was a serious proud mom event for me. Gushingly proud.
We stopped at a few attractions along the way like the Mouse House in Wisconsin, Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store, and The Bean in Chicago.
And lastly, this week, I’m in Austin Texas. It’s so hot in Texas. Like an oven! The cool thing though is that I got to visit Sprinkles Bakery! Eric and I were obsessed with Cupcake Wars and Candace Nelson, the owner of Sprinkles, was one of the judges. Ironically enough, the cupcakes were not that great.
So the reason I haven’t been here writing is because I’ve literally been everywhere else! Man oh man!
The hardest thing about travel is feeling frazzled. Feeling like I’m in limbo, I’m not quite here but I’m not quite there. I actually started writing this post yesterday and wasn’t able to finish it until this evening around 10pm.
But I’m here! And I’m glad you are too!
