Counting Down

I am a big believer in the idea of enjoying where you are instead of trying to rush onto the next thing, but I am guilty of not being completely content at the moment. The countdown is on for a couple of big events!

My next clinic appointment is the day before Thanksgiving.... 28 days from now. My goal is set at having a PFT of 70%. I've got to step it up to make sure I make it to that goal. I need to hop back on exercise train, because I have definitely let that ball drop. I have a very hard time finding the time or the energy to work out after working so much. I'm just going to have to suck it up. I tend to feel guilty because I feel like it should be much easier to motivate myself to do it. There is another reason 70% really needs to happen. I would love to be able to postpone my next appointment until spring break so that I don't have to miss work for it. Unfortunately, that is 4 months between appointments, and they don't like to let patients go longer than 3 months unless they are extremely healthy. Healthy... here I come. :)

Next countdown... Only 7 weeks until my husband finally graduates and gets to move back to Knoxville with me! I am more than ready to be done with this long distance marriage stuff. It makes things so much more difficult. I just can't wait! :)

Now, this one is kind of silly because of how far away it is, but I can't help myself. 28 1/2 weeks until the Great Strides Walk! :) I'm so excited about it, because I have some exciting things planned for this year's walk. Last year, my team was the top fund raising team at the Knoxville walk, and I have goals to raise even more this year. I'm also hoping to have a really large team because I have a whole new group of teacher friends to join me. :) I have already started thinking about the next "Kayla's Krusaders" shirts! I can't wait. I'm just not sure what color to make them. If you have any suggestions, lay them on me.

I'm definitely counting down to the end of this week. I get evaluated for the first time on Friday, and I am definitely a little nervous and stressed about it. Once the weekend hits, I will be one happy teacher, because all of that weight will be lifted off my shoulders. 

Finally, if you know me, you know that I am obsessed with Christmas and all the decorations that come with that time of the year. I'm not far off from starting to countdown to when I finally get to start putting up decorations! I'm that ridiculous person who sees the Christmas decorations at Hobby Lobby in July and gets  excited.

On that note, here's to enjoying where you are and living in the moment. ;)
