Three Things Thursday

1. The house is ready to be sold! This past weekend my fiance, mother, and sister came to town to help me do some things around my house to prep for sale. My personal attendant for the wedding helped out too! In 24 hours we were able to paint a bedroom and a bathroom, clean both, fix the fan in the bathroom, clean windows and kitchen, vacuum and shampoo all rooms but one, run garbage to the city dump, fix the vent cover ouside, and organize and pack up some clutter. Phew. On Sunday I finished shampooing my bedroom, put up curtains in the bedroom and bathroom, cleaned some more, and de-cluttered some more. I met with a realtor last night, filled out paperwork and figured out my asking price. Before he left a lock box was put on the door and a sign is in the yard! Such a good feeling! Let's hope it sells fast!

2. Training is still going .... This half marathon training seems to be on one week, and then off the next. I can't get my running in consistently with everything else that seems to be going on, but I am surviving. Actually, my ankle was acting up again after my 5 miler on Sunday. I was only able to get in 2 miles Tuesday morning. It almost feels arthitic and sending pain up the inside of my shin. However, last night, it felt like a needle was poking me in the back of my lower calf every time I stepped, but my ankle felt better. I might try and run a couple miles tomorrow morning to see how it feels...

3. Wedding planning and getting ready for the move is in full force! In a matter of a month from the engagement we have chosen the date, church, reception location, rehearsal dinner location, attendants, found my dress, found the bridesmaid dresses, chosen the photographer, chosen the DJ, made an offer on a house back home, put my house on the market, put in my resignation at school, applied for a job in two different districts... yada yada.

How's you're week going?

March has most definitely been a whirlwind of a month and I can only expect the same from April. I am getting my house ready to put on the market, moving some things back home, training for this so-called half marathon in May, planning a wedding, finishing my grad class for the semester, and trying to stay afloat with paperwork and meetings at work. Love it!
How did the month of March treat you? Or how did you treat March?
