Ogre or Goddess? Plus: The Right Number of Houses

Thought I’d better post about some things, since it’s been a while, and I have news!  Good news! Very soon I shall be the owner of only one house (and only one mortgage! Woot!).  The work is finally done on the house that the renters destroyed, and it’s been on the market officially for about…

PJF Trail: The Trail’s End?

So tomorrow is my 45th birthday, and if you have been reading for a while and keeping track of my goals (because you have nothing better to do with your life, and let’s face it, I am fascinating), you may recall my first post about the Peaceful Joyful Free Trail in which I set the…

Update All of the Things

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and there really is a lot going on in my life. I figured I owed it to you to share some updates.  Where to begin… Kittens!  I has them!  Mama Cats had her babies just one week after I rescued her (and her siblings) from their hellish situation. …

PJF Trail 201

I had set the goal last week to finally hit 200 miles on my Peaceful Joyful Free Trail journey, and I did it!  201 to be exact.  This was helped along tremendously by one beautiful day when I decided to explore a new (to me) section of the Katy trail, and I ended up walking…

Semantics and Bunnies

I’m still here!  I’m still walking!  I’m still painting my nails!  I’m just not posting about it much, sadly.  Work has gotten insanely busy.  I’ve been tired when I’m off, and I’m slacking on my blogging.  I decided that needed to end tonight, even if it meant posting at 11:00. My little ticker over there…

PJF Trail 101

Technically 102.  But 101 makes a catchier title.  Today I surpassed the 100 mile mark on the PJF Trail!  I’m at 102 miles.  I have metaphorically reached Kennedy Meadows, Cheryl Strayed’s first re-supply stop on the Pacific Crest Trail. Go me! Someone asked me the other day how far I’d gone, and how long it took me to…

Happy Trails

Guess what I did this weekend?  I took my little PJF Trail project out to an actual trail!  I also surpassed the 80 mile point.  83.9 to be exact.  I knocked out another four-mile walk today.  Toward the end I debated lying down on a mattress someone had put out for the trash, but it…

FOUR!

I did it today!  I walked four miles!  At two miles I was feeling on top of the world.  Hard to believe 1.5 used to be so difficult.  At three miles I decided to push on and hit the four mile mark for the first time.  I kept thinking to myself, “I am so winning…

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs

I was all excited this weekend about finally completing 50 miles on the PJF Trail.  I went into Saturday with 44 miles, and I knew I could make it happen.  I did three plus on the first day, and I planned to knock out the rest today.  (It’s Monday, but I was off today because I…

Fight Song

As my little ticker in the lower right corner shows, this week I surpassed 30 miles on the PJF Trail, and I kept right on going.  At about four weeks in, I’ve done 37.4 miles so far.  If you understand math, you can tell that I have a long way to walk before I hit…
