I was going to do a write up post about our Memorial Day Weekend trip to Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA and Hershey’s Chocolate World, but as the days pass I’m feeling less and less interested in writing it. It was a really fun trip, perfect distance and timing for the weekend, and I’m glad we went. But I’m just not feeling like making the internet suffer through all my vacation photos. Anyway, if you want to, they’re all over on my Instagram.
Which brings me to my next point, between work and running around to all kinds of things, and reading books and enjoying sunshine, I’ve been having way more fun lately on Instagram and Twitter than blogging. This blog certainly isn’t going anywhere, I’m sure I’ll be blogging until the mortician pries the keyboard out of my cold dead hands. But where I used to use blogging to collect and publish my random thoughts throughout the day, I’ve been publishing them as I go on Twitter. Which certainly takes less brain space and coordination. So there’s that. And it’s also a lot faster for me to do my social media reading on twitter. I’ve been falling further and further behind on my blogroll, but I can catch up on twitter riding the elevator dahnstairs to the sbux. Except for those promoted tweets. Dear lord I hate the promoted tweets.
In that same spirit of emptying my brain on the internet, here are the things I am thinking about right now:
- I’m really excited about The Steel Trap’s new writing gig with The Downtowner. It’s an awesome opportunity for her and she’s a great writer, so she’s just gonna kill it. Go to her site and follow the link to get on the mailing list!
- Although April and May were tough months in terms of running, I’m back on track and will be participating in the PA Grand Canyon Half Marathon on July 26. I’m really excited about this because I’ve wanted to see the PA Grand Canyon, and the timing is really good for keeping me motivated to run. This year they are doing half marathons on both July 25 and July 26, and I am SO tempted, but I don’t think I’m in shape to do back to back half’s. I could get in shape, but it’s more dedication than I’m willing to give right now. Also, this is the weekend immediately following my firm retreat, and it would just be too much to spend two days retreating with lawyers, followed by half marathon, followed by another half marathon.
- I went through my summer calendar yesterday. It both excites and depresses me. It depresses me because there is SO MUCH I want to do this summer, and there just isn’t enough time to do it all. (Even if you don’t have kids, you should check out the Pittsburgh Mommy Blog’s 2015 Summer in Pittsburgh guide. It’s an excellent one-stop-shop for all things going on in the ‘burgh). I am really glad that I did go through my calendar and put in lots and lots of days for swimming at the JCC Family Park, because the only way to get me to relax is to specifically book time for “relaxation.”
- Speaking of relaxation, we’re headed to Napa in July. And we have a RESERVATION AT THE FRENCH LAUNDRY and also are planning a spa day, lots of wine tasting, a food tour, and also a hot air balloon ride. CANNOT wait.
