Quick Update

Wanted to drop a quick post.  Life has been extremely busy and the blog has obviously not been a priority.  That being said, I still think about it!  Here's the rundown of what has been going on since the last post:

The house continues to be the main focus.  In the spirit of preparedness, I had an electrician come out and give the house a once over.  It became clear that some items needed to be addressed.  I am toying with the idea of asking how much a transfer switch would cost to be installed so that we could hook up our generator to the house's circuits in the event of a power outage.

Also, physical training has been going on (although not as much as I would like) in preparation for a GORUCK 9/11 Challenge and Light.  I am apprehensive of making it through the Welcome Party as it's been a shit show for myself for both of my previous Challenges.  I'm working on my weighted PT, but it's just been a tough time making it a priority.   The only solution I have found is to force myself into doing one off sets of 20-25 reps of a given exercise with my pack on throughout the day when I am working from home.  Evenings have been spent addressing chores and errands that need to be taken care of.

Oh, and I got a tick born illness a few weeks ago!  That took it out of me for almost two weeks.  Thank God for the miracle of modern antibiotics.

Well, that's all I can think of for now to share with you all.  There's definitely more going on, but those topics are what may hold any interest.  I'll keep checking in to let everyone know I'm alive.  Hopefully, once the house is more squared away I can find time (and motivation!) to catch up on all of the topics I have lined up.

Thanks for reading and take care!
