I don't think I've ever been yelled at by a rattlesnake before...
How's that for an interest grabber? I'll get back to that title soon enough. First...well, last week I had this AWESOME post in my mind and I was ready to put all down and put it up here and then my keyboard wouldn't work. Actually, to be fully ... Read more
Oh my aching butt...
I've been saying that a lot the last few days. Every time I do my kids chuckle in delight. Not sure what about my aching butt is hilarious, but they think it is for some reason.
Every so often I find myself wondering why my tush is so sore... Read more
Well, that was disappointing...
Ever turn on a new workout video and know immediately that you were going to hate it? That happened to me today.
I’ve had this set of four Gaiam videos for more than a year and just tonight finish trying out the last of the four. Honestly, I ... Read more
An awesome run and decrapifying-part 2
I had such an awesome run this morning! I’ve been seriously struggling lately. First with a back that liked to go into spasms. Then some heel pain that I thought might be plantar fasciitis. Then a stiff back and hips caused me to go slower than ... Read more
Decrapifying=my new favorite word
Today a friend used the word “decrapifying”. I can’t tell you how much I love this word. I don’t know if she made it up or if she got it from someone else, but it’s a great word. I’ve been working for a month now, off and on, to decrapify my hou... Read more
An interesting day
It’s been an interesting week so far. The kids are on Spring Break so we are having to work around having three kids home during some of our most productive time. Cleaning is harder when your 11 year old is lying sprawled across the living room ... Read more
Why I love yoga...
Lately I’ve been doing yoga again after a very long break. I’ve also added in a video disc I hadn’t really done before. The disc comes from Gaiam, which is a very yoga centered company. The instructor, whose name I can’t tell you, is more “crunc... Read more
Two days in a row? That's because I learned something new today :).
Yep, believe it...two days in a row. Don't grow used to it though :). I currently don't have internet at home so sometimes I link through my phone and other times I use other resources. One of those being the internet connection at church. Now, ... Read more
Yeah, I've been AWOL far too long. FAR, FAR too long. And, it shows, everywhere. Time to come back. Hopefully, I'll manage 3 posts and quite a bit of reading a week to keep me motivated and moving.
I've set up a serious and solid exercise ... Read more
How many races can a woodchuck race?
I know, that doesn't make any sense, but hey, it's late and I'm basically taking today's post from my sister who posted on this same thing earlier.
My Fairy Run Mother has been a busy, busy fairy, signing us up for race after race after ra... Read more
Going the extra mile...literally.
So, today was my second (well, would have been third, but missed one) run for the Half-Marathon training. Plugged my phone in last night, made sure it was charging, went to bed. Almost didn't wake up in time this morning-EEK. Kitten came in and ... Read more
Half Marathon Training: Week 1 Day 2 (not off to the best start).
Yeah, it just isn't the best way to start off training for a half marathon, but here's the scoop.
I mentioned how sister created this AWESOME plan that I quite literally stole (took it right off her table) and it IS an awesome plan. The tr... Read more
The insanity begins, again.
Before I get to the insanity part I have to brag on my daughters for a moment. Son is doing great and I'm sure will have something to brag on soon, but this week belonged to the girls. First awards assembly of the year and oldest daughter (middl... Read more
I'm turning into my grandma.
Today I feel like my grandma. Normally this wouldn't be a terrible thing. My grandma was an incredibly talented person who dedicated her life to teaching music. Not a bad life. She was devoted to her husband and she raised some pretty awesome ch... Read more

Playing by the numbers
Gotta confess, math is not my forte. Or at least that's what I've always told myself. I did fine all the way through Algebra, then Geometry was really confusing.
Pause Button: HOLY CRAP. I just had to call my MD's (Major Dick's) office AGA... Read more
