Rain, Rain & More Rain

12 Oct

I don’t think I can take anymore rain. We needed it. I get it. The ground was dry. But come on! 4 days? Gloomy? Depressing? Blah…

A friend of mine said it made her feel cozy. Cozy? Yeah if you don’t have a 4 year old, errands to do, and a party to get ready for. I want to open the windows. Air this joint out.

On the bright side…the Baltimore Marathon is on this morning! This is the first time in years that I haven’t been in Baltimore running. I’m kind of happy. I love Baltimore but ready to experience other places and hopefully get to travel and make weekends out of running. If anyone has an suggestion for an awesome girls weekend with a half marathon involved…shoot it my way.

Anyway – I have to go clean and be pissed at the rain and gloom…

How does rain make you feel? 


Months of Updates

3 Aug

Hello Summer and no time to sit on my ass in front of the computer!!!

Some quick, not detailed life updates:

L got engaged!!! I’m maid matron of honor. Exciting.

We went on family VK with my brother and his family. Great Times.

My little boy turned 4!!! Little Sad.

We celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary. Woot.

I’m playing soccer. I’m horrible.

Work is work. Blah.

Running is on the back burner. Bummer.

We are having a Blast. A smile on my face and that’s all that matters.

I Love Summer!

Family Run Time

30 Apr

I’m enjoying the running time I’ve had recently.

Not stressing over a missed run or the pace.

My 5k is in a couple and a half weeks. I have a goal. Only two people know it. I haven’t decided whether I should put it out there or not. Maybe…Probably…

Have I mentioned I’m really decisive.


Running has really become an event in our house.  Every night Little D wants to know when we are running. He grabs the water bottles. He even sits patiently waiting for his turn.

David Running

Don’t worry. I’m right behind him. And yes he’s in PJ bottoms. Don’t judge 🙂

We finish up with our regular ab routine. That plank is still tough for him but he’ll get it soon enough.

Olympian in training right there. Along with pro soccer, pro football and pro lacrosse. Oh and star academic. He’s kind of a big deal.

I know all of us feel that way about our children. It tickles me that he takes an interest in what Mommy is doing. Love.

Is running family time in your home?

Filling My Bucket

25 Apr

There’s a saying at my office. “Filling my bucket”.

I love it.

I Can’t Stop Saying It.

I have people in my life that fill up my bucket. Some more than others. Some in different ways.

I have people in my life that kick over my bucket. I’m pretty sure not on purpose.

My goal everyday is to help fill up everyone’s bucket. It could be something as small as a smile and a wave while I’m walking through the office in the morning. Or maybe a small comment “You look really nice today”. I’ve even gone as far as giving up my cup of coffee (blasphemy)

Guess What!

The more I fill up other people’s buckets the more I fill my bucket!

So to everyone that helps fill my bucket everyday. Thank you ❤ I hope that I fill your bucket in return. And to those who don’t…well screw you! I hope someone kicks your bucket into the street…that was a joke…kind of

Weekend w/o Daddy

21 Apr

We had a weekend without Daddy. The first time in years he’s been gone overnight. 3 1/2 years to be exact.

David and I were busy. Like never sit down busy.

Friday was kickball. We lost…horribly. Played 2 people short. It is what it is. Embarrassing.  Then off to visit soon to be Mommy Lindsey. Home at 11 and in bed right away.

Saturday was t-ball, playing, nap and truck pull. Chick Fil A for dinner. Our favorite. Watched some cartoons when we got home. Bed at 11:30.

Today was cleaning, playing, laundry and shopping. David got some great summer clothes. Stuff that he doesn’t get to wear to school/daycare. Never fails. School always paints on days he wears a newish shirt. Damn school and learning.

He cleaned my windows today. Not bad for a 3 year old. A little streaky. I’m not going to redo them.

Daddy will be home soon. David has been counting down the time. He’s sleeping now, knowing that when he wakes up he should be here.

Time to cook dinner. Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend like we did.
