200. Whirlwind


It’s become a nonstop whirlwind in my corner of the world.  Vacation, work, parties, doctor appointments and major cleaning/painting projects have ruled my life over the past week, and I’m ready for a breather. A brief recap of my week: The kid’s rooms have been switched over.  B’s room is painted and decorated, minus his […]

169. Instagram, baby


It’s fall break this week.  My son and I put together a list of todo’s while he’s out of school.  Here’s some highlights. We made phones out of a tupperware container and a can.  It provided many minutes of entertainment for my little ones.  Art project of the week.  Brooks shoe boxes are awesome.   […]

154. I love my mini trampoline!

The masks were a hit, with children and adults like. […]

Training for Mini Marathon #2


I spent yesterday being lazy and eating more calories than I needed to.  Chocolate at work, a large Dr. Pepper from McDonald’s, a to die for marshmallow sundae from Zesto and a raspberry lambic before bed.  See, way too many extra calories, but they were all so very, very delicious.  I didn’t even bother to […]

Running with pearls


Two days and counting!  The Derby City Mini Marathon is just around the corner, and I cannot wait.  Still feeling good and mostly just anxious for race day to arrive.  Nerves are calm, although I am slightly concerned about my right foot.  My heel has been acting up for the last few weeks.  Nothing major.
