38,000 feet

I’ve had writers block all week.

That, and I’ve been insanely busy.

I was blessed to be able to attend a Diversity/Leadership/Be a better person type of training through work, so was out of the office Tuesday-Thursday. Needless to say, just because I’m out of the office doesn’t mean the work disappears too, so I had some catching up to do every night.

Needless to say, this guy was my best friend this week:

Nonetheless, I like to think that the training helped me to reset my moral compass a bit. These two quotes this week stuck hard with me, and I wanted to share...

Anyways, I apologize for neglecting you all.

I’m currently sitting at 38,000 feet, and according to my flight tracker we are traveling at 480 mph. Pretty cool huh? Gotta love airplane wifi, it always feels magical.

Funny story, I ran 12 after my last day of training yesterday, and chose to do so on the BWI trail, which is literally a large loop around the Baltimore airport. I parked right near an area where planes were coming in to land; it was pretty cool to watch.

Anyways, when taking off not 45 minutes ago, I realized we flew right over that same park that I had parked at not 24 hours ago. I don’t know why but it made me happy and I sat here smiling and now the man next to me definitely thinks I’m a nut.

I’m a cool kind of nut.

I’m chi-town bound for a House-cooling party tonight, a Bachlorette Party tomorrow, and some family time Sunday and Monday. I’m pretty stoked for all of it… as always, the trip is coming at a damn good time.

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t currently pounding some DD iced coffee to get mentally prepared for the evening. Now’s not the time to be napping Kait.

Have I ever mentioned that I hate naps? Hate them. Such a waste of life.

Really, I don’t have much else to report. If we’re being honest I’m currently staring down the flight attendant with the basket of snacks.  Something I feel like I need to publically admit: My eating habbits have been far from the best lately. I’m actually looking forward to starting fresh on Sunday and falling back into my paleo-type recipes.

I think that’s all folks. A couple of miles may happen along the lake while I’m in the city, who knows. I won’t count on it because it’s always an adventure when my college teammates and I team up. Always.

Cheers to the weekend, cheers to plane wifi, cheers to my free plane peanuts.



Leave me some love!
