As with every journal and diary I've ever attempted to keep, the regularity with which I update my blog is less than optimal.
I'm not even going to commit to try and do better, because then I just look like a fool when my next post is 6 months to a year later. Suffice it to say that I am here now, and checking in with a bit of an update, and some thoughts for today.
For those that are unaware, I made a big change last year. I left my dear friends and New England family to come back home...to my "real" family and my Rocky Mountains. I took the plunge last Summer, and aside from missing people like crazy, have not looked back. It was definitely the right decision for me.
I'm currently renting a house from my parents until I can find a buyer for my townhome back in Cumberland, RI. The market there hasn't quite caught up to the national trends yet, and it sat with no action at all for six months before I pulled it off and rented out. My renters are in the process of moving out now, and I hope to have it back on the market in the next few weeks...so if you know anyone looking for an adorable townhome in Cumberland, send them my way!
From the minute my feet hit Rocky Mountain soil last summer, I've been a regular at Red Rocks Amphitheater...not that this should be a surprise to anyone. I got to see 7 shows last season, and am on track to see 13 this year. I'm officially an addict. The house I'm renting is only 10 minutes away, so that works out well for me. :) This season rounds out with OAR (with VIP passes) and Grace Potter. Not too shabby, in my opinion!
The best part of being home is getting to be Auntie on a regular basis. I missed so much when I lived 2000 miles away. I love being here for the concerts, recitals, plays and birthday parties.
I've also jumped back on the fitness track after my ridiculously frustrating leg injury a year and a half ago. I've been working with a personal trainer for a year now, and have recently started running again...a little. My goal is to be back in shape to participate in a mud run or two next summer, so I'm hoping to be signing up for a few 5K's this fall.
I love the people I work with at my new job, and the transition was easier than I expected, mostly because of those people. I'm working on a project with a client that is in Columbus, OH, so I travel there pretty frequently. Can't say I'm a fan of Columbus, but to be fair, I really only see the hotel and my office...plus...it's not Colorado.
So, that's the brief update. Maybe I'll remember to jump on and share my random thoughts, observations and rants again sometime soon.
Until then, be kind and be happy!
