That's what's been happening in my professional world. In my personal world, I've restarted C210K on a treadmill at my gym. It's interesting, but I find that it's easier to run when I listen to Disney music (need to put together a playlist), and since my parents got me a Kindle Keyboard for an early birthday present (less than a month to the big 27!), I realized how much easier it is to read while doing the walking portions on the treadmill. It made the time go so much faster!
I was going to try to run the Komen 5K in October, but with all that's happened lately, between work, work, worship team, writing, etc, life got in the way (when you've never made working out a priority, it's hard to make it so as an adult, but I'm working on it). Now, I've decided to just do the walk, and I'm trying to get some friends/family to join me. No one's emailed me back, however. Hmm. *shrugs* I might just have to go it alone. But where's the fun in that?
What I'm really excited for this week (call me a dork), is Homemade Almond Butter. I've been wanting to make my own nut butter for awhile now. I love Smucker's Natural Creamy PB, but wanted to try something new. Since commercial Almond butters are so expensive (nearly $10 for a small jar! WHAT?!), I decided to get some roasted, unsalted almonds and try to make my own.
To say it was a gripping success would be an understatement.

Anyway, that's all that's been happening with me. Now, I need to go back to downloading things I don't have anymore. LeSigh. Oh well. Things happen. At least I still have a computer. Hopefully Tosh won't be giving me anymore trouble for awhile. *knockonwood*
I'll be sure to let you know about the freebie, and the review. I'm super excited about it!
