Five Things Friday 8.7

Hi friends! Hope everyone is having a great start to August. This has already been a crazy month for me and it's only just starting! I decided for this weeks Five Things Friday I would just update you all on some regular everyday life. Something I don't do often, but I really should!

1. On Sunday our central air conditioning broke. It isn't a very big deal to me and my husband, but it is for Dangle. The poor thing has been so hot that she has barely been playing. She just lays around by herself. She even looked up at the thermostat the other day and meowed at it. It was heart breaking!

2. I accepted a part time job! I REALLY want to pay off my student loans, so I decided I could squeeze a few extra hours into my schedule and took a leap! I am really excited for it, and I start on Saturday already! Here's to new adventures!

3. I got my hair cut yesterday, nothing crazy, but my hair dresser told me it would be the last time we are seeing each other. I was in shock! She is retiring and moving to Aruba! Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited for her, but I am being really selfish and don't want her to go! I have really thin hair every where except the top of my head. She is the first person EVER to fix it and now I have to train someone else. I'm not sure what is worse, finding a new hair dresser or a lady doctor!

4. After getting really sick of not being able to find pink lemonade flavored Honey Stinger chews, I finally ordered a box on Amazon. I don't know why I waited so long to do this. Now I can stop panicking when I run out.

5. My husband is a few weeks into his half marathon training for Wine and Dine. He has done a few races before, but this is the first training he is really following. He has been watching his diet and drinking a lot more water. He jumped on a scale the other day and he is down 10 pounds! I am so proud of him! He is going to do great in his race, I can feel it!

Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy the weekend, I'll catch up with you all in a few days!

Tell me one non-running thing you have going on this week! I want to know!


  1. Go Joe! That's so exciting!!

  2. Yay Joe! As soon as Dan started running he lost weight like crazy. Guys are annoying that way right!? Congratulations on the part time job! Dan and I are both thinking about getting one as well..he wants to pay off student loans and I want a house! I'd be interested to hear how that goes for you!

  3. Ugh...I think the hairdresser is more difficult to replace than the lady doctor, Steff; I'm sorry for your loss - ha! I worked two jobs for almost three years; I really enjoyed it because my two jobs were so different from one another. I met some great people that I stay in touch with now, through my part-time job; looking back, though, I'm not sure how I managed all of that! One non-running thing? Worrying about whether I'll be offered a new job at the hospital!! Final interview was on Wednesday morning and I'm dying to know who they've selected...GAH! Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. OMG - I totally know what you mean about finding a new hairdresser. It took me OVER a year to find a new one after my old hairdresser moved away.

    Congrats to your husband - that's awesome!!

  5. Love glimpses into everyday life! I wish I had time for a second job to pay off my student loans. I think I'll have them till I die.

  6. Hope the part time job is great!
