Oh, You're Still Here?

We moved into our new house 2 weekends ago, and the past week has been spent trying to unpack essential boxes while continuing to clear out the old house. It is unbelievable how much crap we have. And I knew this going into the move from prior moves – when you think you are almost done packing up everything, there is still MUCH more to go.  But we are finally at the point where we should hopefully be putting our old house on the market by the end of the week.

It’s been a long time coming. Our old house was great – good location, nice neighborhood, but we were just bursting out of it and needed more space (and a garage).  It was maybe even a little tougher since Marty worked from home and our only spare bedroom was taken up – and without having family close it always made it difficult when someone wanted to come visit.  We had a small walk-in water heater closet outside and it doubled as our bike closet, which was ridiculous. 

Anyways, this is a two paragraph explanation of why, once again there has been radio silence here.  I have been trying to keep up with a few runs a week, one swim, and zero biking.  No more tri’s in the future for me this year, but I would like to increase the run volume real soon so I can do some road racing this fall.

In other news, Logan’s awesome, Marty’s awesome and I’m absolutely loving the Outlander book. OMG. I had heard of this book from a coworker years ago but never got around to reading it until last week – probably my memory was sparked since the cable Channel Starz has picked it up and there’s been a lot of buzz about it.  Incidentally, anyone know how I can watch this since we don’t have a Starz subscription?

My wife read those books 20 years ago, and has reread them however many times since, plus I think a new one just came out.

I had to try to help her find the internets versions of the tee vee too for these shows. She thinks I am a magician for these types of things, and I look at like 4-5 websites ever. crazy woman.

I hope you were able to throw a bunch of stuff away. HOARDER. ;)

kidding. :)

I should read those as soon as I have time for a non-school book. I've been seeing the ads for the show and man, that shit looks like something I would eat up.
