Thursday Things

Tomorrow’s the big day! Green Day’s new album Revelation Radio officially comes out!!!!! The whole album has actually been leaked already, but I’ve been a good girl and have only listed to the 3 songs that have been released already. So far, still breathing is my favorite (and I think possibly my new favorite song in general), but all 3 are super awesome and I’m thinking their new album is going to be totally kick ass!!

With any luck, my pre ordered vinyl will get here early in the morning. It probably won’t though, so I’m going to have to be content with the digital version for a few hours. Haha either way, tomorrow is going to be a super Green Day filled day for me and I’m totally stoked!!


Last night/this morning we had some crazy thunderstorms roll in. That’s always fun, but unfortunately that knocked out our wifi. Time Warner is supposedly working on it and it’s supposed to be back up and running around 7 tonight, but I guess we shall see.

Thanks to said thunderstorms it was super humid this morning, but luckily it’s not too hot anymore, and it was cloudy and slightly drizzly, so my run was surprisingly nice. I say surprisingly, because today’s workout was long intervals and I hate long intervals. They are so mentally tough and my mental game isn’t all that great to begin with. Although I actually did really well today!

The workout was a 10 minute warm up, followed by 10 minutes of hard running, 2 minutes of walking, repeated once, then I cooled down for about 1/2 mile. Not bad. πŸ™‚ Since it’s been cooler outside I’ve been getting a little bit faster which is fun. I definitely feel like I’m making improvements and gaining fitness. This week especially! At the same time though, I feel like this week is kicking my ass. I mean, I had really good workouts today and on Monday, but I’ve been crazy tired. Just thinking about the long run I’m going to do on Saturday makes me want to die. I’m also really excited about it. Haha I don’t know, it’s weird.

Yesterday my mom and dad started packing up a uhal for their move to Colorado and they are driving out there tomorrow, I think. Hmmmm I wonder if they’ll end up stopping here…that be kinda neat! But maybe not possible with a huge uhal. Anyway, my dad’s moving into an apartment and my mom will be traveling back and forth between Illinois and Colorado until next summer. One of my sisters and my brother are still going to school and they want to finish this year at the schools they’re currently at, which makes sense to me. Plus my parents haven’t sold their house yet and they’ve still got other things to take care of before they can officially move, my dad’s boss just wants him in Colorado right now. So the next year or so is going to be kinda crazy for them.

My mom sent me this photo yesterday. Apparently Niko is confused about this whole moving thing.

I’m not sure how my Grandma’s whole thing is going. She’s trying to sell her farm (sad face) and I know she’s had a few people look into it, but I don’t know if there have been any offers or anything. Plus she still has to find a place to live. I’m a little worried about her because my parent’s live right next to her and now that they’re leaving she’s going to end up kind of alone. I mean, my brother and sister will still be there, but my sister will be in Colorado for the holidays so I’m sure that’ll be hard for my Grandma. This will be the first holiday season that my whole family doesn’t end up together at some point. I’m actually supper bummed about that too. Along with all this farm selling business, but it is what it is I suppose.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got to talk about today and I need to go make me some lunch.

Happy Friday Eve!
