Going to a wedding 9/10/11

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Headed down to the Outerbanks to attend a wedding. The poor bride and groom had to change the location after Hurricane Irene last week. Luckily they found something in the Northern part, all the guests booked new places to stay, and all is set.

I am looking forward to running down there. The hotel also has a fitness center, three pools and a lazy river!! My 24th wedding anniversary is Monday so we are celebrating down there. My husband gets his surgery next Wednesday (to remove cancer) so this is our last big trip for a while.

Awesome Day!

Sunday, September 04, 2011

Today was awesome! Kayaked with my hubby and dog for 1.5 hours this morning after walking the dog 1 mile. Then we (my husband, Rox and one of my sons), hung on the boat most of the day. I actually took a nap on it -- I am not a napper. Went to dinner at the marina & ate 1/2 the chicken cacciatori (sp?) that was served. It was very spicy -- Yum! Went great with a glass of chianti. Now I am getting ready to go sit on the deck and look at the half moon shining brightly over the Chesapeake Bay. I am a lucky chick!!

I am truly lucky...

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Tonight I am reflecting on how lucky I am to have a best friend (I have known for 34 years - yikes!) to confide in and who likes to run, a great husband who is supportive, access to a great website which has allowed me to get and offer support to people struggling with the same issues that I am in a non-judgemental way, my two boys who have become terrific, young adults, and on top of all of that, I am surrounded by terrific friends in my everyday life. Oh, and certainly my little boston terrier, Roxy who shows me nothing but love and joy every day!

I also love reading my friend feed. Everyone is SOOO supportive and nice to eachother -- even strangers that we may comment or blog once with. We all live on all the corners of the earth, but while on SparkPeople it is like we are living next door to eachother. It is truly amazing. And I am so lucky to be part of it.

    I feel that way too!

I am very proud of my daughter's accomplishments. When she was 9 months old, I was told she had a brain smaller than other children her age and her prognosis was terrible. The doctors didn't know if she would be able to learn to count or learn the alphabet. They said she might not make it past 6th grade or have troulble learning and not be able to.

She was promoted from kindergarten into first grade before the school year was half over. In sixth grade she was in talented and gifted. She graduated high school and got her BA and has continued on to getting her Masters. It is my personal belief, that God intervened and gave us a miracle.

Signed up for a Marathon 4 person relay today!

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Can't believe I signed up for the Delaware Marathon May, 2012! I put a team of 4 together. This will be my platform to then run a Disney 1/2 marathon on my own next Fall.

My husband, son and friend are running on my team. This will be a light at the end of the tunnel between my husband's upcoming surgery and my foot surgery in November.

I just read my blog title again -- I am nuts!

    Hi R.M. Thank you so much for your comments on my blog regarding my BF. You are right and I agree with you that that is usually the best way to handle it... let him think on it. He's just such a creature of habit and needs to be in control of his environment. Congrats on signing up for your 26.2/4 way! That's about a 10k for each of you! You can do it! It's a long way off and you've got a lot to get thru first! Good luck! Have a great day! emoticon emoticon emoticon
