Poignant Irrelevance

this and that, with exhibits

i lifted a little tonight, 6 or 7 sets of chest. i'm weak from inconsistency.

i feel blah right now....whats up with that. as in i just don't want to talk to anyone about anything, for at least 2 solid days. when you date someone and you happen to feel blah, they may or may not say things like, whats wrong? you seem quiet, and so forth. suck. nothing is wrong i just feel like staring at the wall, can i call you in a few days? hehe, i didn't actually say that though.

i currently have teeth-whitening strips on upper and lower teeth. i think it has been over 6 months since i last used some strips. my teeth aren't bad but i've been drinking a lot of coffee. a little more white would be nice. random i know. how about an exhibit.. i know you didn't want to see that but oh well. i will follow up with an after shot later on. oh the suspense!

other things that have been consuming me lately include:

-looking at buying a place this spring. everything is over-priced in the area that i would like to move to--the lakes neighborhoods. we aren't talking anywhere near NY or CA pricing etc but things still seem out of whack. the process of looking is a little draining. it doesn't suit me (the big committment), and it scares me, and its daunting. do i seem non-committal?

this is a converted mansion that someone turned into a couple of condos-- in an absolute PRIME location/neighborhood. this would be cool.

there is one "unit" for sale at the mansion:
-1 BR
-1260 sq ft
-Bedroom, Upper 21x17
-Dining Room, Main 11x11
-Kitchen, Main 11x11
-Living Room, Main 21x14
-1.5 baths
-listed: $300,000
-association fee: $290/mo
-taxes: $418/mo
monthly payment all-in: $2,299
son of a!

-i think i might be scared to train for another marathon. am i afraid of getting injured? am i afraid of failing? one thing for sure is that i miss the release of running outside in the nice weather SO MUCH. hopefully i will have a better grasp on things in the spring?

-my diet has slipped. it is discouraging. i feel disappointed that i quit my organized diet program. i've put on 5 solid pounds of fat. it shows. i miss eating clean. i don't want to go back as a failure so i haven't been back to re-start.

-i'm leaving on a friday night flight to go meet the 'rents and the rest of the family. kind of stressed out about it.


  • so...um...you have a LOT going on. woah. buying property! so great.

    and small changes count. you lifted. you're going to have white teeth :) yeah, we should all exercise. we know it. but whatever, i am so over (or trying to get over) self-loathing or guilt. life's too short!! it's okay :)

  • Don't sweat the diet, B, it's just because of your new love! You'll both put on 10, look at each other one day, and say simultaneously, "I need to get into shape!" Then you'll enjoy eating healthy meals in, instead of going out on dinner dates all the time, and you'll be saving money to pay for the wedding, so you'll have to bring lunch instead of buying out every day, and eventually (probably around this same time) you'll stop caring what you look like in front of each other and then the spandex running pants and the sweaty brow card can be played. All in good time.

  • yeah, what mia said! lol

    sounds like you've got lots going on. do you feel like you HAVE to train for another marathon so soon? why not just stick with some mini 5k or 10k events for the next year or so and take a breather? there are plenty of years for more marathons.

    hope you're going somewhere fun/relaxing this weekend!

  • Wow, that's expensive! My house is almost twice that size, and cost nowhere near that amount. I guess there is some benefit to living in this craphole city.

    Anyway, I'm sure things will start looking up in the spring. I can't wait! We're getting buried by snow right now - what's it like up in the 'burbs?

  • Pricy for a condo. We bought a whole house for less. It does look nice though.

  • Hey, half my family in Mnpls works in real estate. Maybe they can let me in some secrets about the more reasonable areas to look. Enjoy Chicago, and make sure to smile so that the bright teeth can be displayed to maximum effect :)

  • Good luck on meeting the parents!! Scary!!

    That does seem pretty overpriced for the sq footage, but it is beautiful!!

    Are those your teeth? They look pretty white to begin with!

    Have a great weekend!
