What have I been up to???

I've been up to this before noon today.

It was delicious and potent. Thank you Jenna at Eat, Live, Run

I ate it with her guacamole. And then I took the weirdest nap. It was that stupid Spinning with the Oldies and the tequila.

It was a party for 1!

Last week was kind of crazy. Work has been really busy. But I've had some bright spots. Last night, I had people over to my house for a get-together. It was just my siblings and cousins. But it was a step. My friend Amy wants me to add to my life list that I need to have a party at my house. It was a big step.

Another big step was that I started to free up my schedule. I used to have two volunteer gigs. I volunteer twice a week coaching adults in distance running. This winter/spring, it's half marathon/marathon. Well, I resigned from the other one. That was volunteering for the USO. It was a good gig and it's a great organization. It was just too much. Too much on the schedule. The funny thing was I was at the USO working when I read an article by Bethenny Frankel about how women overschedule themselves and then don't have time to go out.

And you know what? She's right! So that was the icing on the cake. I resigned. And then work got busy and my sister needed IT help at her house.

Sometimes you just can't win.

Let me Re-Introduce Myself

My name is Miss Scarlett. And I am an unsuccessful blogger. Well I used to be successful. And I mean successful in the fact that I was having fun, writing posts, going on dates, and tallying up material.

And then I got busy. Busy with other things. With friends and family. My job and running. You see I don't get paid for this and I have other interests. I'm actually a certified distance running coach. I completed three half marathons and a 5K in the span of 3 months from September to December. I also was a bridesmaid in 2 weddings during that same period.

You see, busy. I kept saying I'd get back into, but I never did. But here I am. I need to do this. I need to get back into dating. He's not going to come knocking on my doorstep.

But there is a difference this time. I'm not as concerned about if it ever happens. I mean, don't get me wrong. I want it to happen, but if I never meet the one and I never get married, I'm ok with it. It's not meant to be. And I will be ok.

So let's go. Let's start again.
