Something More.........

Wheww! Who knew how much work it would take to get this move rollin'.....

T-minus 7 days, and I am done done DONE with my job in Tucson! (YAHOO!!) In fact, (don't tell my boss!) but I have pretty much checked out! Between all of the phone calls to movers, insurance, apt/landlords, and the insane number of odds and ends that you need to take care of, there really isn't much time for work!

I have been sneaking in a fair amount of quality training, which I am very happy with...and I think I realized that "hormones" (the pill) are just not good for me! Does anyone else out there agree!?!?? I swear, since I quit taking it about 1 month ago, I have felt leaner, faster, quicker, and had more bounce in my step. I have had a love/hate relationship with the pill for many years, and I am definitely in the hate stage at this point! No more added hormones with all the stress from the move, that's plenty for me!

Last night (thanks to quitting the pill) I had an awesome 60 min run....now, I am not your country bumpkin, so when I tune into country music, it must have an up-tempo and rock beat!! Sugarland's "Something More" came blaring thru the Shuffle as I cruised into the 40 min mark of my run.....It was about 7pm, the sun was nearly setting, the air was crisp and cool, and I was thinking to myself "I am really gonna miss nights like these in Tucson..."

But the song is so fitting to where I am in my life right now....."gotta be something more, something more than this...I need a little less heartache, I need a little more bliss....I'm gonna take my chances, taking the chance I might....find what I'm looking for..........gotta be something more...."

I have great people in my life who are so supportive of me...and those are people that will be here no matter what town I live in..........

It just makes the move a bit easier to handle.....

Until next time...

good luck with getting everything ready for your move! i agree with you on the pill - it never agreed with me and i do think that it plays havoc on your system. your body is essentially tricked into thinking that you are pregnant every month so you don't ovulate...that is some serious messing with your hormones!!!!!

I also agree about the pill... hated it! It made me way too emotional and I always just felt 'off'. But when I stopped taking it I ended up pregnant the first month and now I'm gonna give birth in about 8 weeks so be careful what you wish for! ;)

This whole pill thing....UGH, I have been on mine since College NEVER went off except to get pregnant w/ TWINS. I would love to go off, but I am afraid my hormones would be out of whack - moreso OFF the pill. Happy packing!! Jen H.
