My Life in Numbers...

I've been in a bit of 'rut' lately, and not just when it comes to blogging. The fact that it is supposed to be Spring and it still continues to snow and be in the negatives is not helping me get out of said 'rut'. I'm super sad due to the fact that by this time each year I usually have a Vegas trip booked for mid to end of April. This time last year I was sitting in the Minot airport, waiting to board a flight to Vegas (which is also where I was when I heard about the Boston Marathon bombings). This year I am sitting in my bed (it's my Earned Day Off from work), watching Once Upon A Time reruns, and checking out Allegiant vacation packages, while also trying to get a blog post published. I tell ya, some Vitamin D would really do my mind, body and soul some good!

This life 'rut' I'm in also means I'm super behind on reading and commenting on blogs. While trying to play a little bit of catch up this morning I stumbled upon Erin's "My Life in Numbers' post and decided to take a page from her book and ease my way back into blogging

  1. I hear you about the weather thing...at this point, it's beyond depressing! What in the world is going on this year?

  2. I am not jealous about your weather situation at all. That's one of the main reasons that I can't leave ridiculously expensive Vancouver.

    I love the Flamingo! I have also wanted to stay there. It has the best pool and is reasonably priced. I've stayed in trashier hotels in Vegas and fancier ones, but I have a feeling that the Flamingo is the perfect medium. Plus, you can't beat the pool!

  3. I hear you about the snow - we've had enough already!!



Thanks for the love! If you have a specific question please feel free to email me at krmathison@ hotmail.com
