Just a little catch up. (not ketchup)


I left the charger to my beloved Chromebook in Perry and I hate wordpressing from my phone, so I’m tardy to the blogging party this week. Woopsie.

Got rained on like crazy at the FSU game but it was still a blast. As always, I’m interested to see how the rest of the season goes. Last year’s National Championship has spoiled me. 🙂

I’ve still been walking every day, and keeping track of my progress along my pretend Camino, courtesy of walking4fun.com. About 38 miles into the trip, and it’s INSANE to me that I will only take 2-3 days to walk what I’ve walked in a week. Here’s where Walking4Fun has me – not the most scenic of routes, but that’s not the most important thing, now, is it?

My mind is everywhere tonight. It’s been a long day of organizing the house and I’m flat out pooped.

Here’s some good music. Because you deserve good music.

Father/Daughter Camino — works for me :)

Lawd. After a bottle of wine and lots of talk with my Pop, it’s decided. We’re going to do the Camino together in September 2016. Done deal. He has already bought 3 books, has priced out transportation to St Jean, and has bought a Spanish phrases book.  He’s as far gone as I am. We’re going to make some memories! I’m just not sure what the rest of the family is going to do for a monthish while we’re gone. 🙂 I guess that’ll be up to them. 

Man, I love my crazy life. 


Also — FSU plays tomorrow*! woot! I’m ready for football season! I think I’ll take some pics tomorrow and throw them up here. 



* technically tomorrow is today, since it’s flipping 3:18 am and I’m still up looking at Camino things and FSU Marching Chiefs videos. Who cares?! It’s a 3 day weekend! Superwoot!


Boring snippet of the day :)

I love my job. All day I help ladies feel good about themselves, make them up for special occasions, help them take care of their skin, all while enjoying the thrill of a sale. The people I work with are a joy, for the most part, and we all help each other out whenever possible. But I’m leaving. The 29th of August will be my last day there, mainly because I have an hour to drive, there and back, daily. The gas money is killing me, and with Abby starting college on the 25th, I need some more $$$. 

So the next logical thing to assume would be that I have a job all lined up, right? Nope. Shawn has said, “take your time, find the perfect thing,” so I’ve lined up some volunteer work at the closest St Vincent de Paul food pantry/thrift shop and we’ll just see what happens from there. I’ve already started thinking that The Camino Will Provide. I really do feel as if I’ve already started it. Now, at this point in a conversation, my mother would start to worry that I was going to sit on my laurels and mooch off of Shawn while my head is in the clouds/on the Camino. Not happening! I’ll likely pick up another trivia and do some other things until I find something I enjoy that’s a little closer to home. 

Ugh this is boring, I think.

I picked up another book about the Camino last night – I’m Off, Then: Losing and Finding Myself on the Camino de Santiago. Pretty interesting so far (in contrast to this morning’s blog – my apologies) and it’s nice to read a more light hearted, honest approach. 

Time to get ready for work! I’ll leave you with this:

14 days til FSU football!!!
