Um, Yeah...

I totally shouldn't posted on the internet that I was going to run 10 miles today and finally eat at Loveless.

It totally didn't happen.

But not because I'm lazy (which I totally have been about running the past few months).

It poured down rain all day. When I woke up, it had kind of started and the radar showed it was about to get worse. I've still had a bit of congestion and a cough, even though I've been feeling a million times better. It just didn't seem wise to me to go run in the pouring rain and 5o degree temps.

I slept in a bit and then ran 6 on the treadmill at the gym. I really should have done 10, but I can really only stand the treadmill for so long. I will admit that I watched the last hour of Snow White on the Disney channel as I ran. It kept me surprisingly distracted. I guess I'm a big kid at heart when it comes to the Disney movies I grew up loving. That Dopey... he still makes me laugh.

I'm sure the guy next to me thought I was an idiot for cracking up at a Disney movie while running, but I noticed most of the women around me were watching the same thing. :)

I spent the rest of the day packing. I don't know when I'm moving. I don't even know where I'm moving. I spent all day yesterday checking out places with no success. Most of the places I saw were dumps that only a college guy would rent, and the others were WAY out of my price range. Ugh. I can always move into an apartment complex, but I was hoping to avoid that. I really don't want to be stressed out right now, but it may come to that.

I'm already packing because I know I have a lot going on over the next couple of months in addition to finding a place and moving. It just makes sense to go on and pack up things I don't need when I've got the free time to do it. Like today, when it was pouring down rain and I didn't want to go out anyways.

It feels good to have a solid stack of boxes in the corner of the dining room that are ready to go. It feels good to have a stack of boxes of things I want to keep but not take to a new place, so they'll go into storage in my parent's attic. It feels good to see stacks of things I've already designated to the yard sale pile. (A yard sale is yet another thing I'm planning to schedule into the coming months!)

I do need more boxes though. Ugh.

I'm exciting about moving, but it's still a bit overwhelming to have so many things changing right now. It felt great to go run those 6 miles and watch one of my favorite movies from when I was a kid and just forget all about all the things that have been on my mind lately.

Running. It really does keep me sane when I've got a lot on my plate. :)
