Coming out of hiding!

I'm alive!

I know, my posts have been so far and few between lately.

I'm not sure what's up, but I just haven't felt like posting, or perhaps, I feel like I haven't had much to post about.

 I'm worried because I literally haven't done any exercise in 2+weeks. I just wake up on my days off and have no motivation to move my body besides cleaning the house and playing with Max. Some days I even feel lethargic. Other days, lazy.

Planted catnip and flowers.

In general, this is okay, but I have a metric century ride in 2 months, so I need to find the motivation to get on the bike. Also, the temperature has dropped in the mornings and I'm disappointed in myself because I haven't gone out for a run. I looked forward to lower temperatures all summer so that I could finally run in comfortable conditions, but now? I feel like I never want to run again!!!

To me, this is sad because I had goals of wanting to get better at running, etc, but now? No motivation.
I honestly feel like this is just a phase and I will get back into it, but for now, I sit around and feel guilty for not wanting to run. I realize I should just let it be. I'm working on it! Also, I'm worried to post and say that I haven't been on the bike in 2 weeks because people donated to my Metric Century and I don't want to let anyone down:( I know I will do the ride, but I don't want to worry anyone.
Besides my lack of exercise guilt, I'm mostly doing well.
On Sunday, Mirza and I went to downtown Tarpon Springs to walk the sponge docks. This place has tons of Greek restaurants. I had no intentions of even eating, but Mirza was pretty set on it. Unfortunately, we picked the wrong Greek restaurant and the food was terrible. It was all we talked about for the rest of the day, that's how bad. So bad, that we both ate less than 25% of our meal, but took a box home anyway, but THREW IT IN THE DUMPSTER WHEN WE GOT HOME.
Bad Greek food hurts me. I don't think anyone can hold a candle to Athenian Gardens. BEST Greek food ever. Their menu is amazing because they have tons of vegetarian options. That, and all of the waiters are young, male, and Greek. They are adorable. And Portobello sandwich---if Mirza orders a vegetarian meal at a restaurant on more than one occasion, then you know it's good.

Here are some photos from Sunday...

As of this month, Mirza and I have been together for 7 years and 8 months. It does and doesn't feel that long. He's the best:) When I tell people who don't know us that we've been together nearly 8 years, they all ask how come he hasn't "popped the question." Besides the fact that deep down I find this question kind of rude, the answer for those who do not know us is that Mirza is still in school working on his degree to become a music educator. Once he graduates, we both have every intention of getting married. It isn't a question  for us, just a matter of timing. But he's in school, and he needs to graduate. First things first, people. I don't see what the rush is when we both know we're going to be together.

The road calls for you, it weeps while you're gone. You'll get back in your groove!

Good for you two for taking things at your own pace. And congrats on your anniversary of sorts. My wife and I were together for 7 years before we got married.

Wow the both of us have been with our boyfriends almost the exact amount of time! As of this past Sep 28th I've been with my Ryan for 8 years, but we're not married yet. I'm sick of everyone asking us when we're going to get married. It'll happen when it happens, we all have our own reasons. Good luck to you two. Cheers!

Just because it happened to me...have you thought about getting your iron checked? When I was anemic back in high school, I dragggggged everywhere. No energy whatsoever! But you're a nurse so I'll let you be the judge. :)

I remember going to Tarpon Springs a few times while being a travel nurse at Morton Plant Mease in Clearwater. Very tourist oriented since sponging is just not what it use to be a 100 years ago. Clearwater beach was my favorite place to relax
