April Recap

Sometimes you write a blog post and forget to post it. Oops. 


April was a pretty great month. See, in February, I got summoned for grand jury duty in DC. Grand jury in DC is a five-week, five-day per week commitment. In short, it's a full-time job. Except, I already have a full-time job, one that keeps me very, very busy. I dreaded my jury summons and what my life would look like being at jury duty Monday through Friday from 9-5 in a windowless room without access to a cell phone or a computer (yes, seriously) and then working every evening. 

On my first day of jury duty, I reported to the courthouse and, after several hours of processing, learned that they had selected one too many jurors. With Katniss Everdeen speed, I volunteered as tribute and was released from grand jury summons to petit jury service, which I finished that day. For the next five weeks, I woke up every single morning grateful that I didn't have to go to jury duty. Sometimes, it's the little things. 

With my life back, I dove right into a pretty relaxing month. Here's a look at how it went in numbers:

Miles Run: 

Minutes of Yoga: 90...if you count an hour-long barre class I went to as yoga. Ouch. 

Books Read: 2 (I'm pretty behind on my Goodreads challenge)

Trips Taken: 1 13 hour trip to Detroit (to be recapped soon!)

New Recipes Made: Ouch...I was really lazy in the kitchen in April and The Pilot did most of the cooking for me. 

Blog Posts Written: 3

30 Before 30 Items Completed: 0 but I'm one ballpark closer to seeing them all!

Highlights: 

Lowlights: 

  • Feeling burnt out from running and training. I took a lot of time off last month and, while I think it's what I needed, I felt pretty lazy.
Since it's already the middle of May, I'll skip "the month ahead" and let you read all about May in a few weeks.

What's new with you? How have your last few weeks shaped up?
