blah blah blah

i feel so meh. it's pretty exhausting to always have such a roller coaster of emotions. sometimes it is surprising to me what sets me off and i never know what i'm going to get when i wake up in the morning. i haven't wanted to be home almost at all this week. i get home from work and change my clothes and run right back out the door and don't return until after dark. i've been spending more time in the pool at steiner and on my road bike. vic has been teaching me some killer pool workouts. 

it's hard to organize or manage my thought processes. it's very strange. over the weekend i found myself screaming and swearing and crying out frustration with my thoughts and inability to function the way i wanted to. i try to stay positive and when the happy times come, i ride em like a wave and it feels so good. 

it's really really really really really hard not to have a lover. i hate it.

i got to see kimberly over the weekend. we went and saw secret life of pets. it was really cute and it was so nice to catch up with kimberly. 

i also got to hang out with cory and kara saturday afternoon. it was fun even though the music was the worst;). nostalgic though. they stayed over and went home sunday morning.

put my buffalo print in the front room and finally hung up my dream catcher. 

and, i have a rover trailer parked in my driveway! you guys, it is so cool. you should buy one! remember my little brother makes them. i need to start doing some weekend get away planning. angie is coming in august and we are taking it to great basin national park. 

i can't wait to see the new ghostbusters movie!

well, guess that's all for now. be nice.

f r i d a y + weekend scenes from taos = picture overload!

here's the play by play...

front and center is thrash, our new friend

i arrived in taos early afternoon on friday starving. so angie, brad and i headed to el gamal for some curry, falafel, hummus and such. it was delicious. we met up with the boys and went to pick a few movies for the weekend at the video store and headed back to the house to hang for the night.

saturday morning angie and i baked. then we headed out and trail ran the devisadero loop. it was pouring rain and the sky was dark when we left the house. once we hit the trail the sun came out full blast and we got sunburned! then we met up with happy and tze to talk shop and check out the new building set up for the mountain bike shop, gearing up.  saturday evening we all attended the gallery opening for taos print shop where angie works. there was an awesome turnout! afterward, we walked with the kiddos and friends over to la cueva for some dinner out on the patio. then angie and i ditched everyone and went to see central intelligence at the theater. because, i can't miss a movie with the rock in it! and we laughed pretty hard;)

sunday tze had organized a 13 mile group run/ride on the south boundary trail. we left the kids with a sitter and headed out. angie and tze mountain biked and the rest of us ran. actually, tze picked up a 20 year old kid named thrash on a mountain bike on the trail before we started off and he jumped right in a joined us. he was pretty entertaining. i forgot my air cast and the last 3 miles were quite painful for my stupid leg. we had such a fun time. after we did the shuttle and tze tried to kill us with his crazy driving, we headed to taos ale house for some grub. then we just chilled at home, eating popcorn and watching the olympic trials.

monday we went for breakfast at taos diner. they make these huge, fluffy gluten free pancakes! after we were stuffed, we headed up to hike on the columbine trail. it was beautiful and the boys were in and out of the creek the whole time. then we went into red river to the fudge shop for a treat. they make those cinnamon roasted pecans, almonds and cashews that smell and taste so freaking good. it is such a charming little place. when we headed home, we barbecued, played cards and did some fireworks. angies house is up on a hill overlooking taos, so we had a great view of the city firework show from the front porch!

i got up at the crack of dawn tuesday morning and headed home. i always get so so sad on my way home. when i pull into my driveway, i just loose my shit and sob and go into my empty house where my lover is not there to greet me;( gosh, it hasn't gotten any easier. i've been pretty down the last few days. so, i have been keeping overly busy and today i am dragging my ass around and my leg is more painful than ever. grrrrrrr.  whatever, it's friday and that means the weekend is coming.

see you in august new mexico...

have a sexy weekend lovers!

random tidbits

i cannot get enough of these kevita sparkling probiotic drinks! i drink one every day. they are delicious and refreshing and low calorie. i think my favorite flavor so far is the  strawberry acai coconut, but i like every single one i have tried so far.

i bought a couple tickets for the phantogram concert in october. i really like their last album a lot.

i bought this belt buckle when i was in taos last time. it was made by a local artist. i finally took it to the village cobbler and had him put it on a belt for me. i love it!

my garmin kicked the bucket. my new one should arrive this week. when i was going up pfeifferhorn over the weekend, i kept smelling owen. and i was thinking, what the what?! then i realized that it was his watch band! i was wearing his watch and the band smelled just like him.

i got these new lamps for my front room back in the winter time and never posted this picture. they look pretty with the dusty rose pillows.

you know how my sister jules has a husband who is a dentist/orthodontist for the air force? well, he is being deployed to the middle east in october for 6 months. we are working on plans to live together during that time. this will be so good for me. i can't believe i get to be with one of my sisters and nieces and nephew for 6 months! what a blessing. and who am i kidding, what a big adjustment!?

i am hitting the road to taos! i will be there for several days and i am super excited! plus, i finally get to bring home my buffalo print;)

the relationships with the people you love are the most important thing in the world. along with how you treat people you don't know. be kind. be forgiving. give people the benefit of the doubt. and most of all, love and except people just as they are.

toodles for now lovers. have a happy and adventurous weekend. eat chocolate. have sex. climb a mountain.

sushi + pfeifferhorn = weekend scenes


picture overload;) i look like i got a gut in this last photo! he he

i made sushi and nigiri with christine and lehua friday night. yum.

took my friend, julie, up pfeifferhorn on saturday. i love that mountain. it was her first time up it and she rocked. being the speedy marathoner that she is!

went to a going away party for my friend jim saturday night. he did his residency and retina fellowship at the moran and he is moving onward and upward! he will be missed. he is such a funny and kind dude.

sunday i went to church and got some things done around my house. then i got to have sushi again, with zane beadles.  zane is joey and lehua's nephew. i have spent time with his mom and his brother and sister on several occasions. seeing as how i am the 5th wheel in lehua's family;) anyway, it was fun and he is very nice and down to earth and has the cutest dog i have ever seen and i am jealous.

i am doing my 3rd isagenix cleanse today.

i have been feeling very sad and lonely the past few days. crying myself to sleep. just missing owen so so much. it really is physically painful. it plagues me every day that i didn't get to say goodbye.

anyway, so looking forward to heading back to taos, nm for a few days at the end of the week. looking forward to some trail adventure with happy, tze, brad, angie and who knows who else!

toodles for now lovers.
