If you're wondering why there's no outfit posts as of late, I'm wondering too. I'm lazy. That's it. Pretty cut and dry.
I'm still coughing my head off. In an effort to stay on my read aloud schedule, I've been trying to read out loud at school (mustfinishbookbyChristmasbreak) and I just can't with this cough. I find myself gasping for air. Yesterday, I gave it to a kid to read out loud and I could continue sorting papers while they were listening. Win-win.
I sent [most of] our Christmas cards this week. This year, they are going to Alaska, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Missouri, just to name a few of the zip codes. I never thought I'd have friends all over the country because I was strangely sheltered before the army came along.
Scott went on a pheasant hunt on Sunday and before he left he said, "Seriously. Go do something.". I suppose he said this because he knows that, left to my own devices, I'll just watch Netflix or something.
The something I did was go to the gym and it was rough. I don't care what people say or how long is supposedly takes to acclimate to elevation. I spent 27+ years at sea level. Colorado is not working out for me. Or, rather, I'm not working out in Colorado because it's physically painful. I spend whole hours thinking about this problem and I don't know how to make it better. Do I have to start all over again when it comes to fitness?
Then I did go home and watch Netflix. Bomb Girls. Have you seen it? It's an interesting perspective of WWII. I've been inundated with WWII lately. I go through a phase every couple of years where everything I read/watch seems to be about the 1940s.
We were watching a story on the news about the book Wild and the fact that it's inspired many people to make that 1,000+ mile journey just like the author did. They were interviewing hikers and chronicling their journeys. This left us with a question: Who are these people and how do they have this kind of time? I think Scott understands more than anyone about just wanting to be outside and away from the daily grind; he hunts and fishes every chance he gets. Not for the wild game, but for the experience. However, he said that even he would never be able to justify such a hike. I know plenty of people who do things like this over summer vacation if they're a teacher, but this trek would be too long for 2.5 months off. Anyway, just a thought.
