of being 28.
In one week, I will turn 29. Awesome. While I'm looking forward to my birthday, I also think a retrospective of 28 is in order:
I went on several vacations (to DC, Denver, MN, Bahamas), I ran my first marathon (Disney), I had a temporary full-time teaching position (fall term), which led, I think, to my being hired for a full time permanent position (upcoming fall), I consumed many beers and had lots of fun, my bowling team did not place number one in league, but we had a good time, my husband and I continued to remodel our condo and we get closer to finishing all the time, and I had a 5K PR (28:28): overall, it's been stupendous.
I have a good husband, a lot of good friends, a cute dog, a nice (eventually) house, a good job, and a family that lives far away (kidding); well, they do live far away, but they're a good family as well. All in all, 28 and its previous years have been awesome to me; I imagine when I turn 29 NEXT Sunday that it will be a year full of much of the same nuggety goodness.
