G’Evening everyone. Tis I.. the infamous Chelle-Belle/MixedFX/Chelle/Chellie/Me-Shell Mah Belle/Bug/(The Original) Cookie/ahh you get the point.
Excuse me for the all over-ness of this post. Its been awhile. It’s late. And i can’t seem to type for anything today. And I’m Tee.Eye.Ard. (Tired for those that aren’t family and don’t understand the inside joke there 😉 )
Ahh man – you’re probably thinking – this is going to be one dumb arse post.. or perhaps you’re thinking – WTFreak is wrong with her?
LoL.. Like i said – I’m tired. My brain is done did for today – so making up fully functional sentences is a chore. So why didn’t I wait to write this? Well because – I did that the last time i started to write a post and lo and behold – here I am months later – So figured it would be better to have a runny run on type of post then no post at all right?!
So – lets get down to biness shall we?
We shall start with the basics –
What Have I Been up to?
Well – LIFE. Its taken up 98% of my time. I joined a box. My fellow Cross-fitters will understand that term. 😉 Yes I am a crossfitter. (Although i fell off the bandwagon due to other LIFE occurrences but I’ll get into those later – maybe) – but yes as i was saying.. I’m a cross fitter. And let me just stop all you Negative Nancy’s now. No – I have not injured my shoulders or my knees. Yes my box cares about health and ensuring all their members lift properly. No I am not a band-wagoner. Yes I do enjoy it. No I do not do it for the glam. Yes I would recommend it. Yes I LOVE IT. No I am not the best at it But YES I do get better.
Seriously. Its been the best thus far and I am completely in love with it. Yes its plyometrics but its not just the exercise. Its the community that cross-fitters create. Its the encouragement. The friendships. The feeling I get knowing that even tho I’m DEAD LAST on my WODs – my team mates are there to PUSH me thru when Im ready to give up. Yes. It is INTIMIDATING to NO END.. but NO I WOULDN’T CHANGE IT FOR THE WORLD. <3 And yes – its not for everyone. Just like Running.. That’s not for everyone either.. but for me.. it works!
Work is good. Our office moved downtown, and although I was a bit apprehensive about it at first – I have to admit – I rather enjoy it. Its a beautiful location with beautiful views. We are a more open space type office which, again, I wasn’t too fond of at first – but – I like it now for the most part. MAKES everyone have to be a lot more social (and now no one can yell at me for being “anti social” or saying they don’t “see” me enough through out the week) seriously – its hard to miss anyone in the office now.. Granted there are some times where I wish we had a door to close or 4 walls to block peeping/nosey eyes/ears .. And one would think that common sense would sometimes kick in with certain people – but, alas – so goes with such an open area office area. And truth be told – I thoroughly enjoy my job. I work with a great team for the most part and really – can not complain (too much) lol.
Family – As many know – My mom past away back in April of this year and not a day goes by where i don’t think about her. My pops is doing his best. But – if you have ever lost anyone let alone your significant other – One knows that you NEVER get over it – you just learn to go on one day at a time. I have my down days. Days I wish I could pick up a phone and call her. Argue with her about how hard headed she is being (cuz LORD KNOWS she was) and just hear her voice again – making sure I was taking care of myself… Because again LORD KNOWS she worried about everyone and their mother more than she worried about herself. ::sigh:: and there goes yet another one of those moments..
Anyways – continuing on – home life is good.. we have started a bunch of house projects (you know, the “honey do list”) lol.. so we have about 10 projects all going on at once and absolutely ZERO completed. lol. I’ve put in some time off after thanksgiving to dedicate to getting them done, as its hard to do when there’s little time to do them in.
Honestly, my days where jam packed.. not just mine – the husbands as well – especially since his basketball league started up again.
We don’t have many “Free” weekends either. Either spending time with family. friends. birthdays. baby-showers. etc.
So between it all – I’ve been physically. mentally and emotionally exhausted. to the extreme. by the time i get home. i have just enough energy to take a shower. put my pj’s on and knock the eff out after.
And now that the Holiday season is upon us.. oof.. where does the time go?! I swear I missed summer this year. We got to enjoy or pool MAYBE a handful of times before having to close it down for the season. And I haven’t take a real vacation since our Honeymoon! OOF. x_X
I’m not complaining – its just funny how life turns out as you get older. We use to travel every year, at least twice a year.. and now, though it would be nice, LIFE takes over and sends us on a different journey. We (my husband and myself) have done our traveling when we where younger. We don’t party anymore. Hardly drink (unless its socially and even then its far and few) and you know what – I’m okay with that. I have nothing to prove to anyone. We do us. And I love it. Its what being a responsible adult is all about. No need for bling or boasting out to the world whats good in our lives. We live a fairly low lime light life and I am beyond grateful and happy for our blessings. (that doesn’t mean people don’t irk the ish outta me tho lol) But slowly but surely I am learning who matters. What matters. And how to WISELY spend my time on and with who.
I have also learned that people will always let you down. Even when you know they are capable of BETTER. You just have to say your piece, step aside and let them fall. Hopefully they learn from it and if not – You learn from it and move on.
So yes – let me end this here – my ramblings are becoming much more cryptic and all over so – i think its time to pull the plug and get to bed.
I’ll post again soon. Hope everyone has a happy and SAFE Halloween. Don’t od on candy and sweets. But def. enjoy the day. 😀
Til Next time.
