Despite what it may seem, I have not forgotten about this blog! I am still a bit angry with myself for not posting more often, as I'd love to be able to look back and see what's been going on in my life! Yet again, I will try to post more regularly...starting NOW!!!
But, first...I must catch up with the past few months. I'll miss a lot, but hit the highlights relating to pictures I took.
In September, I ran a 50K race with one of my best friends. She's someone I knew before I found out about Thomas's cheating, barely. We both volunteered for our local marathon, but I never became friends with her due to Thomas's weirdness and the fact that since he didn't have any friends, he begrudged me mine.
She really stepped up, and we've become so close over the past two years. In fact, tomorrow we are going trail running, touring a winery, and watching our NFL team at her house as her boyfriend makes us vegetarian chili. Score!
Usually, I run my own race, but we agreed that we would run this 50K (31 miles) together. It was so much fun! Here is what we saw near the beginning:
Two more pictures of what we got to see during our run:
Steve's live show was every bit as wonderful as expected. I went with my parents; I've become much closer to them throughout this ordeal, which is one of the many silver linings of finding out I was married to a sociopath and getting divorced:
Here's Max, eating something (shocker!) Andreas's tank is in the background. Speaking of Andreas, he has become so much more personable recently. He asks for me to pet his head! I'm starting to think certain animals really can recognize evil people, which is why the parrots and Andreas are so much happier now!
I was trying to take a picture of Hans, but he jumped up on me and made a good picture impossible!
My dad and I have season tickets to a local NCAA team; the games started recently. We went to almost all of the games together last year, and it was so much fun! We're hoping to make all of the games this year:
Gorgeous picture of me and my race partner running up a hill, at about mile 30.7:
More to come, on a more regular basis!
