Hi! Wow, how has more than 2 years gone by since I last post!? Yikes! I have to say, I have certainly missed writing. So with this [ridiculously] long delay since my last post, please allow me to reintroduce myself, or should I say, introduce my NEW self! Just kidding, still the same me, just a new last name….
Hi, my name is Kathryn Meadley. I married the LOVE of my life, Tyler, on 10.31.2020. With the marriage I also got the best puppy son in the ENTIRE world, Ash. He is my shadow, snuggle buddy, and is 100% a mama’s boy. Tyler said he lost him to me while we were dating but being married is a whole new ball game. Don’t worry, you will hear more about both my boys frequently if you continue to follow along through this journey.
And yes, my gray fur baby kitties are also still around. We are a happy family of five. The kitty cats are still just as cute and needy as ever. Debra is my sassy, little girl and Dexter, Debra’s son (we think), is still just as scared of life as ever before. He trusts his people and his mom (Debra) ONLY! But hey, even though he is always in his constant state of hiding, Debra takes great care of him and makes sure neither of them EVER miss a meal.
I also still work as a Registered Nurse. I work for an outpatient cardiology clinic… yep, I left the 12 hour shifts and back breaking work of the bedside for the 8-5 Monday – Friday life. It certainly has its perks but sometimes I do miss those mid week days off. Hard to say no to weekly routine and a consistent sleep schedule though. I have been with this clinic for almost a year and it has treated me well. I even get to work from home from time to time… certainly nice during a pandemic.
Exercise …. well that’s been a bit all over the place. I MISS RACES and EXERCISE CLASSES (without masks)! They gave my TRAINing purpose but I am navigating the online fitness world and am slowly finding a love for BeachBody on Demand. Maybe one day I will follow a program from start to finish but for now I am enjoying the ability to change it up most everyday. As for running, I am finally finding my stride. I had an injury shortly before the wedding (just another obstacle to juggle as a COVID bride! Insert full sass eye roll! haha) that kept me off the pavement for about 3months but over the last few weeks I have started to run more consistently and its starting to feel less like torture.
Food…. this has been a HUGE perk of getting married. Tyler is a GREAT cook and LOVES to cook! #winning!!!! Tyler does about 90% of all the cooking in our house and it is AMAZING!! Yes, I still hate cooking so I have become a great dishwasher while he creates fantastic meals. Slowly, I will transition him to cooking healthier meals but for now I am enjoying not picking up a pot or pan or planning a single meal. It sure is nice to actually EAT at least one good, home cooked meal a day. Oh, how I love this man! (PS this no cooking thing has had its trade off… I am now the Laundry Queen!)
I think that about sums up an introduction/where I am at in life now. I cannot wait to connect with each of you in the coming weeks and months!
