So word is spreading about my fake engagement. I learned from my "fiance", Matt, that someone came up to him and was like, "Are you engaged?" I didn't spread this, I think the guy who asked Matt overheard Amber when she was talking to him (Matt). Marissa, Matt, and I decided that we should start up rumors about me and Matt decided that he wants to be a rumor consultant. He gave us his pitch and I think he's got a bright future ahead of him.
Spring is the time for people to get married though, at church we have three weddings in three weekends (at least that's what I am thinking, someone correct me if I am wrong). Yesterday Nate and Erica passed out their announcements, very cute. Of course, they are a way cute couple. Matt and I looked over the announcement to see what we wanted to do with ours (again - fake). We have to hurry, because I am pretty sure the wedding is either this weekend or next cause we agreed on a March wedding.
At one point Matt was talking to Marissa about dating and he said, "Jessica excluded of course, every girl can do no wrong in my eyes until I've been on a couple of dates with them." That was interesting and I had to think about it for a while, Matt was backtracking though, saying it came out wrong. So he offered this instead, "It's good to date people to get to know them." Or something like that. Totally different. But that got us talking, I can apparently do no wrong because we've never been on a date, so we agreed that we would skip dating and just get married. I double checked the facts:
Me: So, as long as we never date, I'm perfect?
Me: I was right, my mom's gonna love you! (I told him long ago my family would love him).
So that's the update with the engagement.
In other news : Twelve feet of my fence in my backyard fell down during the last rainstorm (pictures to come soon). So I will be starting a new "home improvement" project: The new fence. For now we have a quick fix, which is good that we could at least do that because I don't have a free weekend until April. But I will see if I can squeeze a little work in here and there. The Bishop and I were talking at church yesterday and he was asking me about the house, I told him about the fence and he was like, "Tell the guys! We can get people in on that!" That's weird to me, I've never thought of them as an option. I figure, once I know the details, I will see if I have the nerve to ask the guys for help. Major pride issue for me, I hate asking for help.
I'm continuing training today through the end of next week, I am getting more comfortable with it, but worry I am leaving stuff out when I train these people. I hate not getting feedback, things like, "Slow down!"
The 10k is coming up...I really need to get out there and run more. I run at least once a week and I can do three miles straight that I know of. I could probably do more if I tried, I just need to try. This weekend I had some kind of cold, I had a soar throat, running nose (still have these things by the way) and have just felt fatigued. Then I get headaches probably because I can't get enough oxygen to my brain. I think I will attempt running after work today, but we'll see how I feel. If not run, at least walk the same distance. I can do that now because it doesn't get dark so early.
Okay. Signing off.
