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?

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.

Fell Off the Wagon

20 Apr

I have a bad habit of micromanaging and running (literally and metaphorically) through all aspects of life. The last couple months I’ve tried really hard to slow down. Enjoy each day. Not try to analyze everything. Less Stress. Less Worry. More Smiles. 

I finished 2 half marathons in the last month. PR’d the one in March and helped a dear friend finish her 1st half marathon in April. Great memories in both of them. 

We bought my little boy his first lacrosse stick. He learned how to write his name and count to 30. 

My husband switched jobs. Got a promotion. Has lost some weight and is healthier.

We have all had a great couple of months. Without me planning, analyzing and stressing over each step, each move, each decision. 

I have a 5k in 4 weeks. I’m excited. I want to PR. I’m going to enjoy it.


I’m Still Here

4 Jun

My favorite time of the year has arrived and with it is nonstop motion. My brother and his family come to Maryland every summer for at least a month. It is glorious! We laugh, we eat, we drink, we laugh some more and the time always seems to fly by so quickly. Along with this wonderful time of the year is the total loss of routine and our normal lives.

Keeping up with running has been difficult to say the least. Today for example I took the opportunity to run to my Mom’s house to see my family. If I hadn’t I would have missed my weekend run. I continue to try my best and hope that I’m doing enough to keep my mileage up.

This month is also full of birthdays and anniversaries. It is wonderful to be able to celebrate just about all month! I will try to update more frequently…until next time 🙂
