Cop out!

Two decisions were made this week, and I'm totally copping out on my goals in life.

1. I may not run the entire half marathon in Paris- When I signed up at the end of November, I thought I had loads of time. With the holidays, I didn't run as much and now I've got five weeks to run 13 miles. I'm currently on 3.5 miles. I don't know if I'll be able to make it. Ekks. It may be a "walk/eat croissant/run/eat a crepe" situation.

2. I won't be getting a manual Irish driver's license - So when I moved here, my American license did not translate so I thought to myself "Since I have to take the test anyways, why don't I learn a new life skill and learn manual". Silly me! Those manual lessons were the worst hours of my life. So stressed- stalling at lights, teenage boys pointing and laughing at me (no lie). So this weekend, I forced asked Hubby if we can just get an automatic car so I don't have to learn and ta-da!, my magic worked. Automatic car = no stress! (Apparently though, the test is still really freaking hard. )

Do I feel bad about copping out? A little, but it's made my life 1000% less stressful so it's for the best!

Hate that our licenses don't translate! What a pain, right?

Definitely sign up for the half! (I say this as I'm considering bailing out. hahah).
