I'm Back!!!!

Well, My computer is now fixed, thanks to my fantastic brother in law.   Now I can update this thing and accually use my computer! It is great. Well a lot has happened in the last little while. I ran my 10k and had a time of 1hr and 25 min, then I found out that they mismarked the course and I actually ran 6.8 miles instead of the standard 6.1. I was so happy to find out that the course was longer than it was so post to be. I was so proud of myself.  Well hopefully I can not get back on track with this blogging thing.

the teething monster.

Well my little monster is being visited by the teething monster. Not fun. I really can't complain as she is a wonderful, happy baby, most of the time. The only thing that has helped today is a washcloth wih an icecube in it. Poor baby. We will make it through.
     In preparing for the race on saturday, I did 4.25 miles on the cross trainer and then another 3 mile walk this evening. I an really having doubts about being able to run the whole 6.1 miles on Saturday. My legs have been bothering me and I know that the extra baby weight is not helping, along with the really sore body that comes with brestfeeding. I will make it through and I am going to be so proud of myself just for finishing the race. The weather has been so lovely and is going to so amazing on race day, and that is a huge blessing. Started taking Calcium to help with the running and to hopefully prevent any fractures and to keep my bones healthy and strong.
     Only one week from now I will be at my parents house in Phoenix. I have been thinking a lot as to why I decided to go as it means another trip, on my own with an almost 5 month old. Last time I did this I said I wouldnt do it again. See, she is getting too old to sleep the entire trip and finds others on the plane either terrifying or her best friend and then has the attention span of a tipical 5 month old and demands that you, her only source of entertainment, perform the same song and the same conversations till your blue in the face. I love her though. She is so wonderful.
     Well, Tomorrow is another day and I am looking forward to watching the inside of my eyelids. Enjoy!

My body hates the gym

Just about one week and I will be running a 10k. I am currently suffering from shin splints and a really achy body. This is gonna be one crazy challenge. I am only doing the cross trainer and haven't been running and not going to run till the race to try and save my legs. I think Ice is going to become my friend. I am really excited though. 6.1 miles and a huge sense of accomplishment. Not sure about going to the gym today. my body is so sore. Lots to do today though. My little monster gets a new food added to her selection and i am going to get a bullet and start the adventure of making my own baby food. I want Maddy to experience lots of different types of food and I want to know what is in what I am feeding her. Anyway, Today is going to be a rough day for missing my wonderful husband. Only 6 more weeks!

Yesterdays post, Today.

Well, a lot happened today! Started to go to the gym and thought that I should check my tires as the two front ones were really low on Sunday. Well, they were both low again so instead of the gym I went to the Tire shop. Two and a half hours and one new tire later I was on my way back home for a much needed nap.
My wonderful husband was in St. Thomas today so I got to hear his voice and it was amazing. We got some news that could change our lives for the better and would be a huge adventure. I am just praying for God’s will in the situation as He always knows best.  Don’t you just wish sometimes that you had a magic wand or a crystal ball to make everything go your way or at least see what was to come. Ya, I know, bad idea, right. God ALWAYS knows best and sometimes that is the hardest lesson to learn. It is so easy to worry and fret and get so involved in the moment that you quickly forget to just take a step back and remember the one thing that you were taught over and over in Sunday school as a child. God knows best and is in control of absolutely everything. God Help me remember this daily. Hopefully we will find out soon what He has in store for my wonderful husband and I.
I made some Tuna Casserole tonight for dinner. It wasn’t the creamy kind and like always, was one of my own concoctions. I dug into it before pictures could be taken and as I made it this afternoon, so that I could go to the gym this evening, I don’t remember what I put in it. My memory is so bad since I had my little munchkin. I’m not sure it will ever come back. Just when it does, I’m sure old age will set in and the ever growing amounts of grey hair will suck it all out anyway. Young people enjoy your memory while you have it, one day soon you will wake up and wonder where it went.
Tomorrow is a new day and comes with a whole new set of adventures. Enjoy!
