Life Currently… Coming Up For Air

Spring is coming!

Holy cow it’s been an eventful couple of months around here. I had to road trip to San Diego to move my things out of storage and up to Canada finally, I had a bunch of work and have been back and forth to the States a few times, and my husband had to have open heart surgery to remove an aneurysm from his aorta. Woof. The good news: I’m no longer paying for a storage unit, all my things are in one place, I have work, and my husband is alive. Glad game to the max. Here’s what else is going on:

Making: Lists. Who doesn’t love crossing s*** off after you’ve completed a task?

Wanting: My car’s issues to be covered by my warranty. I just dropped it off at the dealership to get serviced. Hopefully they figure out what’s leaking and why. Finger’s crossed.

Moving: I’m working on two new online workouts/programs so am currently testing those bitches out so I can get them filmed as soon as the snow is gone outside!

Reading: Just finished The Perfect Nanny and am need of discussing it with somebody asap! Has anybody out there read this?! How did you feel about the ending?

Writing: On this blog for the first time in over a month. I’ve got 3 posts that have been sitting here waiting to be finished…

Watching: We’ve got ONE more episode left of Ozark. Loving that right now. I’m like 8 episodes behind on Grey’s and have pretty much the entire 2nd season of This Is Us to get back to. I’m in no hurry. I haven’t had any room for medical drama in my life lately, but now that things have cooled down, I’m able to get back at it. Trying not to hear any spoilers about any of them…

Listening To: Podcasts, duh. My latest favorite is Slow Burn – an 8 episode deep dive into the Watergate investigation. So relevant right now and incredibly interesting! Plus, episodes are around 20 -30 minutes. Perfect for dog walks or commutes to work.

Drinking: I tried making my own Moscow Mules the other night. They turned out gross. I blame it on the ginger beer I bought. There was only one kind available and it turns out that kind sucks.

Eating: Only the good stuff. The TRX Summit is a little over a week away. Gotta stay ready.

Enjoying: This warmer weather! For the love of all that is holy – winter may finally be over. It was over 60 degrees yesterday and I was hot sitting outside at a cafe working. Let’s keep this up, Canada.

Hoping: That there’s no more snow. I don’t think I could take any more accumulation.

Needing: Lotion. I’ve never before needed to moisturize – I blame the wet, hot, humid climate I grew up in in Kentucky. Mountain air is different though. The dryness is great for my complexion and hair, but heinous on my hands. I’m now that girl that has to have lotion in her purse.

Feeling: So much more relaxed now that I’m not worried about Fraser’s aorta exploding at any moment. The surgery day was incredibly stressful and I’ve never been more scared in my life, but I’m so glad it was successful and we can both stop worrying. It’s a long 12 weeks back to recovery for him, but he’ll be back to normal in no time once his sternum heals.


Noticing: These long ass days. The North makes up for the brutal winters by giving you 18 – 20 hours of daylight in the summertime. It’s light until past 9pm right now and I’m here for it.

Smelling: This lemon sage ish that’s on my hands right now. It was the only lotion in my bag (that came from the last hotel I stayed in).

Pinning: Things to do in Austin, Texas. I’ll be there for a week next week (I’m teaching the TRX AGTC Certification and then working the TRX Summit). I’ve only been once, but I loved the city. I’m excited that it’ll be hot too. I know about Barton Springs and Lady Bird Lake, but will take any other suggestions for fun stuff to do outside. I’m also planning on going to a honky tonk to dance. ; )

Wishing: That my immigration application is closer to being accepted. I completed my physical this past week (good to go with no tuberculosis, HIV, or syphillis, so… woot) and am just waiting to hear which hoop I’ve got to jump through next.

Loving: SPRING! Get outta here, snow!
