Weeks 7 and 8 of Unemployment: Overdrive

Weeks 7 and 8 of Unemployment: Overdrive

I know you probably laugh when I say how busy I feel these days. Busy enough that I can’t even blog about being unemployed! I have no kids, no job … what the heck do I do all day??? But, I am busy, terribly busy. There are things cooking and I’m not ready to fully disclose what I’ve been up to yet.

In the meantime, here are some other updates.

  • Another one of my magazine articles made it online! This one is about adventure racers and one particular race in NH. It was so fun to write and I am actually going to volunteer at the race in August! I am happy these assignments keep coming my way because I really enjoy them. Next up: Bollywood dance class (which I’ve actually been taking for more than a month now).
  • I am indeed a poor speller because I officially failed the spelling portion of that editing test I took 2 weeks ago. It’s okay, it wasn’t meant to be. But I do wonder if they ever heard of spell check. Who is going to edit something without using spell check or a dictionary? I think I’ll stick to writing … that way the editors can fix my apparent spelling issue.
  • Training, training, training. J is training for a triathlon that will take place next weekend. He started talking about it a few months ago and this time, it actually stuck. He is actually training and I am his support staff/trainer. Except, he still hasn’t stepped foot in a pool. He believes he actually doesn’t need to because he “was a great swimmer in high school.” That was 20 years ago buddy. Anyways, we went last night to the public pool to swim and it was closed because someone pooped in it. Awesome. Doing a triathlon is on my bucket list, but I KNOW I can’t swim even one length of the pool. I plan to take adult swimming lessons at some point, so maybe someday I will feel more confident about doing a triathlon.
