I blog in my head fairly often, but it never seems to make it to the page. Twitter is the bane of blogging. At least for me. But I don't post the same sort of things, so I need to make it more of a priority.
I've been working on a big project at work, which has been a little frustrating and stressful at times, but it's rewarding and interesting and keeps me unbored.
My parents were here for a week and that was nice. I had to work more than I'd wanted, but we got some quality time together. I'm very lucky to be able to work from home and work when I need to.
Besides the usual Ikea, Whole Foods, and Chuy's that we must hit up, Dad and I went around the lake with him on his bike while I ran - it was pretty awesome just sharing that with him. And we took mom up to see the pedestrian bridge and part of the trail as well. Mom and I had girl lunch time too <3
Since they left yesterday early, the mister and I cleaned up and then just enjoyed hanging out together - watching True Blood and laughing at the awfulness. Today we went to see the Avengers. We rarely make it to the movies, so it was a nice treat.
Tomorrow's back to more normal schedule. I'm not ready, but it seems like I never really am and it all works out :)
I should get ebb&flow tattooed on myself, but it would redundant to anyone who knows me ;)
It's been a while because sometimes I don't know what to say, or I feel like what I have to say is banal that no one will care. But I miss writing some days, and I like my archives and think I should keep adding to them.
This weekend was as low-key as I wanted it to be. After spending parts of the last 2 weekend flying, and with some big changes on the horizon at work tomorrow, I was anxious to do a lot of nothing, and I excelled at it.
On Saturday morning I went for a long run - 10ish miles, which is the longest I've done since the half-marathon. I wasn't sure I had it in me, but I managed to help myself by zigging when I should have zagged and ended up not where I thought I should be. But a nice couple pointed me in the right direction, and the mileage ended up perfect and it was a nice, if hot, day. And I got to see lots of doggies as I ran next to the Mighty Texas Dog Walk.
Then there was much laziness and watching of bad movies (Pet Cemetary II) and so-bad-its-good tv-shows (Knight Rider) and lots of smarties and laughing. And I downloaded and love "Ticket to Ride" for the iPad, so I played that while totally paying attention to the aforementioned shows.
Today, I slept in, then made these Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes and a no-bake lemon cheesecake for Easter, and we hung out before deciding it would be nice to head downtown to check out REI.
Now my night is winding down, and this post seems run-on and boring, but I'm hitting Publish anyways.
One of my devs recently posted about Pinterest. Unlike my girlfriends who are addicted to the act of pinning pretty images, he was instead raving about the site's "magical" CSS. Their feed has an awesome look and feel but I never stopped to wonder why. Apparently Pinterest uses jQuery Masonry (go to the site, resize your browser for the "magic").
