Catch Up Brag: Status Report

Yes, it's been too many days since I last published a blog entry.  But, as this is already my most prolific year of the last ten as a blog writer, I'm not feeling too terrible about that.

Let's see here:

Entertaining: Dan and I hosted a dinner for sixteen people.  All the food was amazing, even the food we didn't make.  The company was phenomenal.  The fact that three of my five siblings were there was unprecedented and sublime. Let's not talk about how I'm the shortest of all the siblings. It's not fair, but it's reality.

Running: Shef crushed me in our Turkey Trail Trot by 3 minutes and 21 seconds.  The kid can run.  He also got 13th place overall out of 237.  While it's true that I got majorly pounded by that one competitor, I did beat 210 others.  That's right: I got 26th place, 10th for women, and 3rd in my age group.  #stillgotit

Professional Development: Friday morning at 8am, I met MM for a lovely chat about our professional practices and interests.  We shared book and article titles and patted each other on the back.  It was delightful, and we're going to do it again soon.  Slapdash, you're on the guest list for all the other times.  Get ready.

Green Smoothies: I'm at seven days of drinking green smoothies.  I feel pretty great.  Highly energetic.  I got Dan to also drink them.  This seems to be a very good health decision, and I feel superior every time I mix one up.  It seems braggy and sort of annoying to tell you that, but that's the whole point of this month on the blog.  It might be the hardest challenge ever, but I'm obviously rising to the occasion.
