February Sweeps

Holy Ballz Batman!  I have been slightly remiss in writing.  Sometimes, life just gets away from me and sometimes I just have nothing to say. (Yes, that is possible.) It's been a little bit of both.  The good news is I am rockin' and rollin' this month.  I have officially crossed off three items on my 2012 to Do and have started two more.  I certainly have my productivity pants on lately...and I'm lovin' it!  Here's the lowdown. 
I am ecstatic to announce that I will be joining the Board of Directors at Blackfrairs Theatre.  Theatre is my passion.  I love Blackfriars Theatre.  I want to give back and make a difference in my community.  So this was a no brainer for me when the idea was presented to me last year.  Since I had moved, it never came to fruition but now that I'm back it has! I am honored to have been voted in and so looking forward to making a difference in the way that means most to me.

     11. Give back to my community. (Joined the Board of Directors at Blackfriar's Theatre!)

I am taking Pilates again!  Y-E-S!   I can't tell you how good it feels.  After the first class I couldn't sit or stand the next day without a groaning in agony.  My studio is Evolution Pilates.  They are the bomb.  Check them out!
     12. Begin Pilates again.  Take class no less than twice a week.  How I miss it so.

I accomplished my next goal about 2 weeks ago.  Had it not been for Ian, I probably would have never crossed this one off.  I tried salmon!  And guess what?  MUCH to my astonishment, I actually liked it!  I was thankful to have a fish officianado with me.  He had me taste it cooked well done which made a difference.  I think if it had been slimy and mushy I would have hurled.  But it wasn't "fishy" at all.  The only fish I can tolerate is tuna drowning in mayonnaise with a slice of cheddar.  I think I can now add salmon to the list...hold the the mayo.

     13. Try salmon.  Gulp.  I do not enjoy seafood.   

I have OFFICIALLY registered for the Rochester marathon.  I am excited and vomitous about this.  I am doing the half marathon to start since I am a newbie.  In an effort to actually complete this and not die trying, I am taking it in baby steps.  I will first run a 5K at the end of April!  I have officially registered for this too.  I have an awesome running coach, I got my brand new fancy running sneakers and have completed one full week of training.  I am well on my way to completing this goal!  Although I'll have to wait till September to cross it off the list.

      1. Run a half marathon. ( Registered! ) 
    A new afghan is started and I adore it!  My new pattern is tricky and without my Mom I would have never ever figured it out.  Ever.  But I have and it's beautiful!  Crafts are my fave.  I picked out the most gorgeous off-white silky yarn.  This blanket will be the first addition to my new house, (once I get that).  Can't wait to finish it and post pictures!

         16. Crochet my third blanket ever.  Try a new pattern. ( Started! )

    I still have several things on my "to do" list but the year is young.  I am quite content with the progress I have made thus far.  I have a feeling I'll be adding to this list very soon.  Looking ahead, I am eagerly awaiting the start of rehearsals for Parade in a couple of weeks.  It's an amazing opportunity and I'm pumped to begin the artistic journey.  (More on Parade in a future posting.)  Happy Sunday peeps!
