I feel like everything seems to be on hold at the moment. Well, not as much as it was last week, but it will hopefully all be over soon.
I was first on a holding pattern while I waited to hear about a job in DC. It kind of just fell into my lap and figured I had to give it a shot or I'd always wonder, what if? Plus, moving to DC would have meant I'd be closer to my sister and my 2 gorgeous little nieces. It also would not have hurt to be near my hair dresser too, but I digress. Turns out I didn't get it. I'm perfectly fine w/ that since I do love Philly and I love my job. Sure, it would have been nice to be near the girls, but in Philly I'm a day trip from DC and evening trip to NYC and the rest of my family.
So now, I'm in a holding pattern of sorts while I figure out if I can negotiate language in my lease renewal that will allow me to break a lease if I buy a place. I want to start looking, but my lease is up at the end of October. No way I will close that quickly. Plus, I leave for China on Nov. 2. No way I could deal w/ closing, moving and packing for an international vacation. So that's holding pattern #2.
Finally, my last holding pattern is waiting for my new bike to arrive. I've been having a lot of issues w/ my current bike and finally found a new road bike that should be perfect for my century ride in seven weeks!!!! B/c my old bike sucked so much, I haven't gotten above 35 miles in my training. It's very frustrating!
So, there's my whiny post, which explains why I haven't posted in a while. What's there to post about when you are in a holding pattern?
